Ann Romney urging undecided voters to fall in love with her husband as she did.

There was a day when Ann Romney along with her husband was standing in doctor???s office and heard the bad news, the diagnosis report. In such situation no one can even image that she would be on-stage like the way she was tonight. Ann Romney said she didn???t live a marriage that one can find in storybooks instead she and her husband have faced many hardships. But they still lived the love of their life, a love that have withstand by everything.

Now I don’t know what your opinion about this speech is? How would I know since it all depends on your previous feelings about Ann Romney which may have changed either if you have watched it on the television or going to hear about it.

CBS has conducted poll about it, according to which around thirty-two percent said they didn’t know enough about Ann Romney to give any opinion. Today’s speed can be kind of introductory message about Ann Romney thoughts, ideas & campaigns for those thirty-two percent.

Ann Romney where discussed many other things also talked about, how they eat tuna fish and pasta as a newlywed couple, how they have enjoyed the beginning of their married life. Ann Romney also threw some light on how women have to keep the household in their minds regardless whatever they are doing etc

In short Ann Romney has delivered a great speech, there might be many people having different may be negative thoughts about her husband “Mitt Romney” but after her speech there are bright chances that the views would have got new directions now.


How I wish

How I wish by Javeria Nawed

Wishing love & peaceWe’re often found facing ourselves with one of the most widely-understood-yet-immensely-haunting question: Have we, as humans, made the world rotten?

Look around yourself and you’ll be encircled by waves of shame. Dustbins are no more dustbins, to start with. They’re some ‘official witnesses” of the garbage humans create. Big yellow pits begging ‘use me’ are in fact an eyesore to many who prefer to leisurely consume and ignore. Ignore the responsibility of being a ‘human’.

And do we bother to replace the greens we’re so in a hurry to root off to feed our needs? The plants and trees which are a paradise for living organisms, what injustice are we doing to them? We’re dissolving the bird’s homes to build ours? Huh, what cruelty! The cars. We’re so fond of them. It hurts to walk a mile. After all, aren’t we the focus of the planet? Being the superior most creation? So it must be permissible to liberate tons of killing exhaust from our vehicles. Our comfort counts the most. Who would care about the atmospheric disgust while driving to their favourite eat-out?

If you dare to pretend that my bellowing horn couldn’t make you move an inch, be aware! I can jump off my cultus and tear you apart. Yes, sadly this is the ‘tolerance’ we supposedly- decent beings show. We’re always ready to cut and kill anyone who stands in our way. We’ve even lost the sense of conscience, a sense which distinguishes us from other creations. Isn’t it deplorable?

Moreover, I often see children ‘playing’ to their heart’s content in streets. That must be okay. What becomes unacceptable is when their ‘sport’ involves hitting and running innocent animals. Dogs and cats are stoned for fun, that’s what they call it. Now these little minds cannot be blamed for the choices they’re making. The fault is ours. The adults. How many of us actually stop and advice these youngs that animals are a living being? Honestly, this mind-your-own-business when the world’s decaying has already ruined us!

There’s also the issue of our love for new clothes and makeup and shaving blades. We have to look our best in our gatherings, meetings, parties, gyming, and what not. Do you know that the amount you spend in looking glamorous per month could pay off a poor child’s school fee? Or you knew but you preferred your sparkling hang outs? Probably the second one. Because that’s what we’ve become. Tears of our under privilege brothers and sisters is not ours to worry about. Blame the government for this unequal distribution of wealth. That’s a chicken way out: humans’ beloved excuse!

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.” {Dalai Lama, a noble Buddhist}

This is what the humanity should strive for. This is what we’re born for. To cleanse ourselves of the injustice, to wash off our indignities, to pride in comforting others. Inner solace is the antidote we seek.

And having pointed out the everyday paradoxity,I wish I could possess the Elder Wand somehow. One flick and we would be transformed into a ‘human society’. A place for everyone to fit in, to love, to care, to worry, to cry.

Huh, how I wish.


Friendship and Love

A few days ago I got this text message that said: ‘Love is like a call; if you don’t receive it, it’ll be missed. Friendship, on the other hand, is like an SMS; until you open it, it waits in your inbox’. While I had plenty of food to munch on at the time, using this SMS as food for thought, I worked a bit on it to make a personal perception of love and friendship.

To me, friendship is like a handshake; it starts off reserved and impersonal, seeming completely formal. After awhile you start depending on each other, and you begin to feel the warmth and care of your buddy’s support. Like a strong shaking of hands, it is a symbol of strength, and an unspoken vow to stand firm ground when your pal needs you.

Love, either unfortunately or blissfully (however you put it), is never so controlled, so computed. It comes as thrusting and mighty a force as the strong waves of an ocean, crashing against the craggy rocks on the shore; engulfing anyone and everyone in its path, leaving a mark or gash so deep that it can never be undone, other than by another, mightier wave that leaves a stronger impression.

And so love is more like a hug. You cannot have an impersonal hug; that’s just not possible. Neither is there such a thing as a partial hug. The embrace position is an unobstructed position; you cannot see what your partner is wielding, as their hands are on your back. It’s an sign, one of complete faith; holding someone close to the heart, wrapping your hands around them, and even closing one’s eyes at times while resting your head on their shoulder to symbolize this absolute trust that you hold in the person.

Of course, this doesn???t mean that love is better and should be sought with everyone. Each person and emotion has its proper place in this world, and to prove that (on an ending note), is the fact that you might shake hands with a million people in your life, but you only ever embrace a select few.


Ethnic cleansing: a curse to humanity

Racism - Ethnic Cleansingby Shibabrata SenChaudhury

This is an era of globalization where the entire world has started to get well knitted in the form a village. People from most of the urban sites on earth are now happily living together as a multi-ethnic society and almost every event is celebrated like a cosmopolitan festive occasion. In spite of all these pros, there still exist several cons in the name of ethnic cleansing. Many people of the minority group in places around the world are yet living their lives condemned of the personal views toward the society.

There are several countries where the term ‘ethnic cleansing’ is relevant in the form of civil wars, discrimination towards the minorities and many other political factors. The continent that has mostly engraved its name in such practices is Africa. Genocide in Darfur zone of Sudan, politically motivated civil war by Mugabe’s Zanu party in Zimbabwe and civil war in DR Congo are few of the examples being put forward to highlight such terror-stricken act on earth. Thousands of cops raped women and many children were made orphans as the aftermath of these riots. It would remain biased if only Africa is mentioned as the place for giving rise to ethnic cleansing. Such incidents happen in several other places across the globe in smaller or larger shapes, and not just observed in the Third world nations; but also noticed in many developed nations.

Illiteracy is the biggest reason for giving rise to such horror-struck situations from time to time on earth. However, chauvinistic believes towards one’s race or community and envy towards the others are the major reasons that ignite ethnic cleansing. The crossover time had come and gone to maintain peace between people, irrespective of race or community. But, the term ‘ethnic cleansing’ hasn’t yet been wiped out of the dictionary because many people still carry the latent feeling of hate towards other communities. The multi-ethnic society should live more open-heartedly with each other rather than negotiating or reconciling themselves to the people of other communities.

Ethnic cleansing not just results in millions of deaths, but also leaves behind several traumatic minds and a destabilized economic structure at place. Millions of people are found to emigrate from one place to another in order to safeguard themselves. It causes an imbalance in the lifestyle and economy of the neighboring places too. In many cases it is observed that such clashes are politically initiated to gain the political clout of certain zones. The ruling government of every country need to workout on this area – where they can provide basic education and moral values to every citizen to such an extent that they never get brainwashed by the wrong people with wrong motives.

We all need to understand the meaning of globalization in its true form and spirit to come out of the darkness caused by ethnic cleansing in several minds.
