I Hope its Me

I don’t knw what you want
I hope its me
I hope its me

In the night when you sleep
When you sleep, When you dream
There is a face that you see
I hope its me
I hope its me

When you think you’re caught
When all hope is lost
The thought that lets you free
I hope its me
I Hope its me

When you are in a bad mood
Nothing seems right
Those eyes bring you glee
I hope its me
I hope its me

When that D-day comes
When you say I will
Someone on his knees
I hope its me
I hope its me

I don’t knw what you want
I hope its me
I hope its me

The Curious Case of Ram Jethmalani

Ram Jethmalani can arguably be called one of India's best lawyers, which is a very subjective term so lets call him one of India's most paid lawyers. But he is weird. If you think he is not, wait and read further!

He takes a moral high by fighting against the black money stashed outside India. He joins Anna Hazare against corruption. Then, he defends Kanimozhi?? Do you know he also defended Harshad Mehta & Ketan Parekh. If these names haven't rung a bell, let me remind you that these were the people who were behind the biggest stock market scams in India. Isn't that Black money Sir?

He has also defended some very high profile but infamous names like Manu Sharma & Afzal Guru. Afterwards, he has used excuses like , "Didn't want Afzal Guru to die easily but rot in jail" and "I have some obligations to some peoplE" in Manu Sharma's case.

He has had a very strange Political career as well. He was a minister in the Vajpayee government and then he went on to fight againt AB Vajpayee in the 2004 Lok Sabha Elections and in 2010, he was again a BJP MP in the Rajya Sabha. He has also started a couple of political outfits in the past which didn't really pick up.

I am not judging him. He certainly is one of India's top lawyers and everyone has a right to proper defence in a court but for a person taking high moral ground of issues of black money, Should he be taking such cases?

All I am saying is that he seems to be a confused personality.

Filled With Burden

I aint a soldier who will look back
In front I see a man just like me

I will catch the fish in the sea
Her fault is that I am hungry

I am furious & I am angry
I will take it out on you

I just have to make it through
No one cares how or why

Always coming up with a new lie
Trying to hide my sins

Having lost myself for those wins
I keep wishing for more

One day will crash into the floor
Filled with burden is my sack

Osama gone, Mystery remains

Almost the entire peace loving world is celebrating the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the rest (peace loving) are busy trying to read between the lines in this whole affair. Osama has died but the mystery remains.

So much is there which needs to be answered(and the list is not robust)..

1.       What was Pakistan’s role in this whole operation? Did they know or did they not?
2.       If Pakistan didn’t know, as the US and Pakistan claim, why was the areas cordoned off and electricity cut off in the region?
3.       Did Pakistan know about Osama being in the region? They say no but I find it difficult to believe. Even if for a moment you assume that he didn’t move in and out of the house, what about his dialysis? USA claims no dialysis equipment has been found so wasn’t the Military hospital in the vicinity the only possible option?
4.       Living there is one part but OSAMA BIN LADEN shifted to a high security area in the heart of Pakistan and no one seemed to notice. I find it hard to believe.
5.       On a similar note to the last point, US forces had the house in question on surveillance(right next to the Pakistani Military academy) And no one noticed. If this is true, it doesn’t put Pakistani forces and intelligence in good light.
6.       Why did the White house suddenly chance its stance about Osama being armed to being unarmed in 2 days? If he was unarmed, why wasn’t he captured? They say he was killed while resisting arrest, well can’t more than a dozen trained Navy seals arrest an unarmed person?
7.       He was unarmed they say. It would be a fair assumption that even Osama wouldn’t carry a gun 24*7 but the operation lasted for 40 minutes according to the White House which means it took them 40 minutes to reach Osama and even after those 40 minutes, he was unarmed. Are we trying to say that the World’s most wanted man was living in a house without any ammunition?
8.       Last but not the least, Why doesn’t Obama want us to see the proof?!

Like I said before, all the good people in the World would have liked to see the end of Osama but at the same time everyone would have wanted this end to be final and free of controversies. This seems like a screenplay in narration rather than the end, which we all want to see.
