here it goes... The translation is given immdly after each para...
Is baar nahin
Is baar jab woh choti si bachchi mere paas
apni kharonch le kar aayegi
Main usey phoo phoo kar nahin behlaoonga
Panapney doonga uski tees ko
Is baar nahin
(This time when that little girl comes to me with her bruises, I will not blow gently at her wound, nor distract her, I will let her pain grow.Not this time.)
Is baar jab main chehron par dard likha dekhoonga
Nahin gaoonga geet peeda bhula dene wale
Dard ko risney doonga,utarney doonga andar gehrey
Is baar nahin
(This time when I see pain on facesI will not sing the song that eases pain I will let the pain seep in, deep. Not this time.)
Is baar main na marham lagaoonga
Na hi uthaoonga rui ke phahey
Aur na hi kahoonga ki tum aankein band karlo,
gardan udhar kar lo main dawa lagata hoon
Dekhney doonga sabko hum sabko khuley nangey ghaav
Is baar nahin
(This time I won't apply any balm Nor will I ask you to shut your eyes and turn your head While I gingerly apply medicine I will let everyone see the open, naked wounds. Not this time.)
Is baar jab uljhaney dekhoonga, chatpatahat dekhoonga
Nahin daudoonga uljhee door lapetney
Uljhaney doonga jab tak ulajh sake
Is baar nahin
(This time when I see difficulty, uneasinessI will not run to solve the problems I will let them become complicated. Not this time.)
Is baar karm ka hawala de kar nahin uthaoonga auzaar
Nahin karoonga phir se ek nayee shuruaat Nahin banoonga misaal ek karmyogi ki
Nahin aaney doonga zindagi ko aasani se patri par
Utarney doonga usey keechad main,tedhey medhey raston pe
Nahin sookhney doonga deewaron par laga khoon
Halka nahin padney doonga uska rang Is baar nahin banney doonga usey itna laachaar
Ki paan ki peek aur khoon ka fark hi khatm ho jaye Is baar nahin(This time I won't pick up my tools as a matter of dutyI will not make a new beginning Nor will I stand as an example of one dedicated to my job I will not let life easily return to normalcy I will let it descend into muck, on the twisting paths I will not let the blood on the walls dry out Nor will I let its colour fade away This time I won't let it become so helpless That you can't tell blood from paan-spit Not this time.)
Is baar ghawon ko dekhna hai
Thoda lambe wakt tak
Aur uskey baad hausley
Kahin toh shuruat karni hi hogi
Is baar yahi tay kiya hai
(This time the wounds need to be watched Carefully For a long timeSome decisions are needed And then some brave moves to be made We have to begin somewhere. This time this is what I have resolved)

I was really amused by the media reporting that Shri. L.K.Advani (opposition party leader) postponing his take off from delhi to mumbai in order to make a joint visit along with Shri Manmohan Singh(Prime Minister). It was also surprising consedering the fact that the politicians try to gain political milage by these visits especially with elections round the corner. My surprise ended shortly when suddenly Advani was criricising the government's policies in mumbai... wher the hell did tat fellow go ther all of a sudden after makin such a statement of joint visit.,.... Shame on indian politicians...
Narendra Modi giving out 1 crore for killed police officers family in mumbai!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wat the hell was this gujrat CM doing in Mumbai.... Is he gonna run for his second CM seat???
Sivraj Patil (Union Home Minister) Resigns Owing Moral Responsibility........!!! with three months left in office for the tenure to end.... wat will happen in three months... even a draft proposal could not be prepared(history says so..). will the leaders concentrate in campaigning or corrective action????
RR Patil (State Home Minister) Resigns!!!! Vilasrao Deshmukh (Maharastra CM) offers to resign..!!! Again congress people.... not in a position to comment..
PM orders increase of troops along border and cuts air and rail links to Pakistan!!.... (it looks similar to BJP's action during their end term, only to be recalled by the current govt..) making one believe that pakistan government is responsible when the other side begs to differ... Can the terrorists from pakistan sneak into indian roads without insiders help???
Where are the answers to these questions. Who will take the moral responsibility of answering these questions...?
Also it makes me wonder why the hell do teams from FBI, Scotland Yard and an Israel need to come to india for carring investigations into the attack. Are our officers not competent enough?? Where has all the tax-payers money in the name of investigation gone???
These are some questions raking my head when i read any news about the terror attacks...

It is the 76th convocation day of our university. Sitting on the dais of the Sastri Hall I look at the young faces in the full Sastri Hall - the famed hall which have produced scores and scores of proven entrepreneurs, renouned scientiests, top class leaders, knowledgeable engineers, skilled surgeons and leading economists to name a few... I look at the faces of the budding graduates on a day in which their dreams have come true - at least partially in graduating from Annamalai university, the beaming parents whose eyes slowly well with tears of pride and joy, the teachers who, in all humility, toiled to produce a batch of hardworking talents for our nation - and the faces of the budding graduates.! a sizeable portion of them, from engineering facutly, offer me a gloomy picture at the day when they step out into the world proudly proclaiming they are qualified engineers now. I search, frantically, knowing fully well of the futility of the efforts, for a round face, always smiling with kindness and unlimited warmth, always ready to help others and always ready to be the man-friday! I search for the softspoken, ever smiling and ever willing wonderful person who was dependable, joyful and full of affection. It takes a few moments to realise that you are no more with us, vijay, but has departed for larger pasture - the most coveted position in heaven.....
I look back those fun filled days of your association with me and the team of the dedicated volunteers of the placement cell of the faculty of engineering and tech. The jokes, the night outs, the late working hours, the rejoices of the selectees, the dinners, the team efforts, the organisation, the teas, and what not? Most significant is your attitude of lending a hand, even when other departmental vacancies came up and the innumerable travels and paces up and down the staircases. The unerasable ooty trip, the rains and the unexplored areas of ooty, the walk on the roads, the tiring travel when we talked- you of your aspirations, your recent meditational endeaours, yoga, family, affectionate parents, loveable sister- why did you leave us all, vijay - so suddenly and so swiftly?
I am reminded of the day when you came to my office, beaming with joy and said " sir, i presented a saree to my mother in my first part-time salary. She was so happy. my grandmother blessed me and my father too."
We continue to look for you in future convocations as well and I am sure you will continue your dedicated efforts of helping others - now in heaven - with gods and goddesses searching for the loveable soul always.Vijay - i am sure you will continue to support your juniors and your friends alike, continue to return back in our dreams and thoughts, continue to be with us in our cherished memories. May your soul rest in peace.Vijay - we miss you!

Some pics for making this blog look bright... :)
The first images, taken at an altitude of 9,000km, show the northern coast of Australia while others, snapped at a height of 70,000km, show Australia’s southern coast. The Terrain Mapping Camera is one of the eleven scientific instruments aboard Chandrayaan 1. The camera takes black and white pictures at a resolution of about 5m.

I have been seeing many people spending some hours a day for blogging. It is well evident that blogging is catching the minds of virtually (almost) most of the net surfers. It is still brought forward with celibrities too starting their own blogs.. aamir khan having a dedicated site for this and now recently Big B too expressing his desire....
These make me start blogging and express my views on a horde of issues publically and in a global way....
And most important i was inspired in blogging after seeing my friend Ramnath (alais BODY) http://www.mid-wicket.blogspot.com/ http://ramnatharunachalam.blogspot.com/ who is regular with his blogs and hats of to him for inspiring me.
I'll be back wth a strong opening blog shortly once i get a juicy topic in my head.
Hope i get hooked on to this.
