You Are An Idiot Page #2

After reading and watching people's homes being invaded, emails scooped, telephone conversations listened to, everything considered personal in an acclaimed "personal space" become personal no more and after watching every movement being watched over through cctvs in undisclosed corridors and at times even behind closed doors and dressing room walls(?!) and after realizing that the intruders claim what they do to be legal in pursuit of security issues that seems to be looming larger than considering to establish this basic right that seems rather too easy to be trampled upon and foregone... 

Fyi Article 12 of UN Declaration of Human Rights states, "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his/her privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks."

You Are An Idiot Page #1

After watching an elderly man, a senior citizen yesterday, walk out of a Church and walk straight into a shop in Bangalore that sells (thiruttu a.k.a pirated) movies and ask for "special" movies and when the guy in the counter did not understand, goes on to say, "Triple X (XXX) movies"... Who are we sitting with in those benches in those Holy places?! Hope that old man had a restful weekend...

The "You Are An Idiot" Series Begins

Watching the world pass by and a few idiots swing with it gently (as they fool and get fooled,) as patiently as I could over time, I realized that it is best to expose a few issues hovering around bothering me and those wishing that I be an IDIOT to believe it to be true. Things were not so good to be true anyways...

I had 3 things in hand that were rotting to start with that I wanted to put to some decent use: 
1. there was this weird looking note-book that my sister and brother-in-law had gifted me (which was surprizing for the venomous hatred my sister has for me which I assumed must have spread to its mate as well... however,) 
2. a set of weird black pencils (seriously!) made of black wood, with a black erazer and ofcourse black lead that has been hardly used and 
3. a video camera with an optional still camera that I gifted my wonderful wife who feels that the stupid camera in her mobile phone is more convenient and functional than this video camera that has received nothing more than an occasional charge to keep it alive (just like her cooking...) lying wasted 

Starting today, October 08th, 2013, in a ruthless pursuit to waste no more time trying to adjust, accept or admire these crazy despots, I thought, well, it might be a good idea to limit words and begin putting the note and pencil to some good use, scribbling what some people think everyone else to be-a total and complete IDIOT if (only) they believed what they did to be true... and yeah, the camera, from the dark closet, will bring to light these scribblings for those who follow (though I wonder why...) this blog everyday (?!) (excuse me if it turns out to be "only occasional" (For I neither come across IDIOTS nor occasions to make me one everyday...) so, as and when the "YOU ARE AN IDIOT" button glows spotting something silly happening around in my workshop make sure you tune in as well and visit this space. And ofcourse, you are welcome to share your reactions and response in the comments as well (actually, you are more than welcome..) 

So rolling by the saying, "You can fool everyone sometime and someone everytime, you are an IDIOT if you think you can fool everyone everytime", let the games begin...
