Money Comes… Money Goes

Many of us like to hold on to things, emotions, past, feelings, people , clothes, books or anything that is close to you , maybe even a Teddy .. For a lot this thing is money, and they cling on to it really strong, promising themselves that it is a huge pillar of their lives.

I agree that money is the main factor of everything, it is energy, which drives everything around us. No money = Not So much of possibilities. In today’s world if you have no money you are going to face tough times.

But there are people who earn enough to clear off their debts or their loans, yet they are sad of not having enough. Some crib about not having enough to shop. Some cry about their salary. Some about not having good food.

Nobody is ever satisfied. That’s true , look around you , people do not just cry about not having enough money but also about other things which may look really stupid. Things which are too petty enough to be blown out of proportion.

A few may sit down and say , “Alright that’s it I am happy with my life what it has given me and now I shall have a happy end.” Well that may sound poetic, and less than 5% of the population of the world reach that state of mind , even after getting retired.

Money as what many see is a need for their daily living, Fair enough, not blaming this segment of people. The rest who think it is not enough to buy a new house or a new car or a new jacket , blah blah blah.. hmm, for them I would advice, please do not get carried away too much with materialistic items in this world. Well that’s just impossible to do and something what I would never achieve even if somebody told me “impossible is nothing” .

From all what I have experienced , I personally feel , us humans , are never satisfied, not even the most pious of us lot. Even the Religious leader of one community would want all people from Religion X to Convert to Religion Y or vice versa. Even they are not satisfied.!

People like to get what they want, and nobody can change that. The debate about having enough , can never end , all we can do is try to be more simple in our lives, by keeping our wants limited as much as we possibly can. This thought itself seems nearly impossible but not completely.

There are some really simple people in this world who do not care about anything too materialistic and live the life to the basic as much as possible.

Imagine if every consumer would be like them… 🙂 , Companies would be in recession all the time .. hahaha!

Give More …. Expect None!

Brighton Trip

Today I went to brighton with a few friends, it is an amazing place , breezy and the beach is a nice place to relax and be with friends or family, brighton is a stony beach, so you cannot play most of the normal sand games which usually people do. I do not understand the reason why it has got an award for?

But overall it is a nice place for a weekend as there are a lot of sea surfing activities to do , if love doing it and also a few attraction around brighton which may interest you.

We all had a great time there and I hope to see brighton once again.

Brighton Beach

Brighton Beach

4 months 3 weeks and 2 days

The film follows the story of Otilia Mihartescu (Anamaria Marinca) and Gabriela ‘Găbiţa’ Dragut (Laura Vasiliu), two university friends in an unnamed Romanian town. The film is set in 1987,[3] one of the last years of the Ceauşescu regime. When Găbiţa becomes pregnant, the two girls arrange a meeting with Mr. Bebe (Vlad Ivanov) in a hotel, where he is to perform an illegal abortion (Communist Romania had a natalist policy against abortion).

At a college dorm Gabriela and Otilia go over the items they need for the following day, and as Gabriela nervously sits and waits in the room, Otilia barters and buys soap, cigarettes, etc. from school friends. Afterwards, Otilia takes a bus to visit her boyfriend Adi, from whom she borrows money. Adi asks Otilia to visit his family that night, as it is his mother’s birthday, and to buy flowers on the way, to which Otilia initially declines, but she relents after Adi becomes visibly upset.

Otilia heads to a hotel where Gabriela has booked a room, only to be informed by an unfriendly receptionist that there is no reservation under Gabriela’s last name. Otilia goes to another hotel, and after much begging and haggling is able to book a room at an expensive rate. Afterwards Otilia goes to a rendezvous point to meet with Mr. Bebe, although he had been told by Gabriela that Otilia was her sister, and Mr. Bebe grows angry upon hearing that Gabriela is not at the planned hotel, and that he has to leave his ID at the front desk, fearing that the arrangement might be a police trap.

Mr. Bebe discovers that Gabriela’s claim that her pregnancy was in its third month is a lie; in fact, it has been at least four months. Mr. Bebe ask for more money since a late term abortion is a much greater offense punishable with 10 years in jail. In order to help her friend, Otilia reluctantly has sex (and eventually Gabriela does as well) with Mr. Bebe so that he will not walk out on them. Mr. Bebe then performs the abortion by injecting a probe and some fluids into Gabriela, and leaves Otilia instructions on how to dispose of the fetus when it comes out. Otilia is visibly exasperated by Gabriela’s lies, yet continues to help her and care for her.

Otilia leaves Gabriela at the hotel to go to Adi’s mother’s birthday. She’s still visibly disturbed but stays and has dinner with Adi’s mother’s friends, who are mostly doctors. They all talk about trivial things while Otilia and Adi remain silent. The phone rings in the background, but no one answers it. One of the guests then starts talking about lost values and respect to elders when Otilia accepts a cigarette offered to her in front of Adi’s parents, which prompts Adi to bring the champagne in order to get the party over with. Adi and Otilia then go to his room where Otilia tells him about Gabriela’s abortion, and they start talking about what would happen if it was Otilia that was pregnant since Adi seems to be against abortions. After fighting with Adi, Otilia calls Gabriela from Adi’s house. Gabriela does not answer, so Otilia decides to go back to the hotel.

When Otilia enters the room Gabriela is lying on the bed, and she tells Otilia that the fetus has come out and is in the bathroom. Otilia then wraps the fetus with some towels and puts everything in a bag, while Gabriela asks her to bury the fetus. Otilia then goes outside and walks around for a while, finally climbing to the top of a random building, as Mr. Bebe had suggested, and dropping the bag in a trash chute.

Otilia then goes back to the hotel and finds Gabriela eating at the restaurant. She sits and tells Gabriela that they are never going to talk about the whole thing ever again.

Primrose Hill & Bricklane

Well like any other day after class of LSE summer school, it was an adventure again, we met at Primrose today , its an awsomme place. You can view a pic below..

primrose hill

primrose hill

This place was ideal for having a nice time with firends sharing jokes and just chillling around, most of us knew that we won’t be seeing each other for a long long time, after today. Fernando will leave tomorrow for Guatamela and so will Gizem for Turkey,& Manuel (a.k.a- manly/MAN-LEE) for Philippines,  the rest will leave in a few days time to their home countries.

Brick Lane was soon followed after Camden Town, while we shared  a nice time with bijan at some random pub and then hopping over to Brick Lane in a bus, well it was quite a long way all the way to Liverpool street from Camden Town yet it was fun. the best part was ,me getting angry at the promoter who wanted to prove that , the particular indian restraunt was the best but infact it wasn’t as when I went in to check , the food was rubbbish and not upto the standards of a proper indian cuisine. We then went to chillies which was after a few restraunts but was an amazing place , mirza and the rest enjoyed the food, but myself and oktay did not eat anything as we both had a snack earlier and were quite full.

After which we then walked into some random unknown club in a random street in Brick Lane which played some really wierd Lounge Electronic Music the same beat over and over again for the  past 2 hours and then I just walked out as we couldn’t breathe in, yeah the entry was for free though 😉

I just reached home now and look back at the start of my day with me being late to exam by a few minutes but successfully completed my paper.I feel that every day is special in its own way, its just how you go with the flow and how one percieves it to be.

Have a Great Day 😀

Danny Elfman- Amazing Music

Music by Danny Elfman just made me speechless, he is one artist I heard after Yanni and James Newton Howard, who actually felt sensational and emotional, there is truly a lot of depth in the music..

😀

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince

Amazing movie, I really liked the movie from the start til the end, though many of my friends and people whom I knew said that the movie is not that great and is unlike the other potter movies which does not meet the expectations. I yet watched it to see for myself, usually a negative critce forces me to watch and see what is wrong in a film, and i did the same with this one as well and now I am satisfied that I did not make a wrong choice, it is unlike other potte rmovies indeed, the quiddich match is really short , few fights, but a lot of suspense and thriller was involved throughout,, about how malfoy would use the cupboart , what the deatheater’s whould do naxt, how snape would fulfilll his promise, all these little mystries really made the movie a different piece of work and a piece of appreciation which made the whole crowd applaud and stand up after the movie was over.

I hope to see the next potter movie soon.. 🙂

Capital suggestion
By Dr Farrukh Saleem
12/9/2007
 
Here’s what is happening in India:
 
The two Ambani brothers can buy 100 percent of every company listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) and would still be left with $30 billion to spare. The four richest Indians can buy up all goods and services produced over a year by 169 million Pakistanis and still be left with $60 billion to spare. The four richest Indians are now richer than the forty richest Chinese.
 
In November, Bombay Stock Exchange’s benchmark Sensex flirted with 20,000 points. As a consequence, Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries became a $100 billion company (the entire KSE is capitalized at $65 billion). Mukesh owns 48 percent of Reliance.
 
In November, comes Neeta’s birthday. Neeta turned forty-four three weeks ago. Look what she got from her husband as her birthday
present:
A sixty-million dollar jet with a custom fitted master bedroom, bathroom with mood lighting, a sky bar, entertainment cabins, satellite television, wireless communication and a separate cabin with game consoles. Neeta is Mukesh Ambani’s wife, and Mukesh is not India’s richest but the second richest.
 
Mukesh is now building his new home, Residence Antillia (after a mythical, phantom island somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean). At a cost of $1 billion this would be the most expensive home on the face of the planet. At 173 meters tall Mukesh’s new family residence, for a family of six, will be the equivalent of a 60-storeyed building. The first six floors are reserved for parking. The seventh floor is for car servicing and maintenance. The eighth floor houses a mini-theatre. Then there’s a health club, a gym and a swimming pool. Two floors are reserved for Ambani family’s guests. Four floors above the guest floors are family floors all with a superb view of the Arabian Sea.
On top of everything are three helipads. A staff of 600 is expected to care for the family and their family home.
 
In 2004, India became the 3rd most attractive foreign direct investment destination. Pakistan wasn’t even in the top 25 countries.
In 2004, the United Nations, the representative body of 192 sovereign member states, had requested the Election Commission of India to assist the UN in the holding elections in Al Jumhuriyah al Iraqiyah and Dowlat-e Eslami-ye Afghanestan. Why the Election Commission of India and not the Election Commission of Pakistan? After all, Islamabad is closer to Kabul than is Delhi.
 
Imagine, 12 percent of all American scientists are of Indian origin; 38 percent of doctors in America are Indian; 36 percent of NASA scientists are Indians; 34 percent of Microsoft employees are Indians; and 28 percent of IBM employees are Indians.
 
For the record: Sabeer Bhatia created and founded Hotmail. Sun Microsystems was founded by Vinod Khosla. The Intel Pentium processor, that runs 90 percent of all computers, was fathered by Vinod Dham.
Rajiv Gupta co-invented Hewlett Packard’s E-speak project. Four out often Silicon Valley start-ups are run by Indians. Bollywood produces 800 movies per year and six Indian ladies have won Miss Universe/Miss World titles over the past 10 years.
 
For the record: Azim Premji, the richest Muslim entrepreneur on the face of the planet, was born in Bombay and now lives in Bangalore.India now has more than three dozen billionaires; Pakistan has none (not a single dollar billionaire) .
 
The other amazing aspect is the rapid pace at which India is creating wealth. In 2002, Dhirubhai Ambani, Mukesh and Anil Ambani’s father, left his two sons a fortune worth $2.8 billion. In 2007, their combined wealth stood at $94 billion. On 29 October 2007, as a result of the stock market rally and the appreciation of the Indian rupee, Mukesh became the richest person in the world, with net worth climbing to US$63.2 billion (Bill Gates, the richest American, stands at around $56 billion). Indians and Pakistanis have the same Y-chromosome haplogroup. We have the same genetic sequence and the same genetic marker (namely: M124).
We have the same DNA molecule, the same DNA sequence. Our culture, our traditions and our cuisine are all the same. We watch the same movies and sing the same songs. What is it that Indians have and we don’t?  
 
INDIANS ELECT THEIR LEADERS
 
And also to mention: They think of Construction of own nation, unlike nations who r just concerned with destruction of others…
