Champions Of Peace  

Posted by Praveen in , ,

Yes, they are fighting for us. They are waging a war on terror for the well being of humanity. Hail Israel , u are doing us a great service. Hail USA too, for providing them with ample support, both in the form of arms and moral support. Hail UK, for being the ultimate sychophant of the US. Last, but not the least, Hail UN, for being ineffective and for sometimes turning itself into a second US. Now, what remains....

Well, I forgot one small arabic country in West Asia named 'Lebanon'..I forgot a few thousands of small children, whose lives are of no consequence to the 'peace loving' Israelis and Americans. I forgot their parents and loved ones, who are terrorists to my eyes. All I know is that Lebanon is a mountanious region, where all the terrorists of the world reside, at present. 3 years back, their residence was in Iraq. In 2001, they lived in the Afghan mountains. Its indeed a pleasure to have all the terrorists at one place because we can bomb them all to hell. Maybe, that water gun totting 2 year old kid is the next Bin Laden. So, we'll kill him too. Or that 1 year kid crawling to his mother is being trained to be a guerilla warrior. So lets kill him and his trainer, his mother. So, to me, all those living things in Lebanon are terrorists. So, u might be wondering, who am I? U might be praising me for being so impartial, for being a champion of the world peace operations. Well, if u want to know, am CNN.

And then, i got an ally in BBC, which is always at his majesty[blair]'s secret service. We both are now the torch bearers of the world peace and anti terrorist campaign in the media world. We make it a point to bring to you exclusive[that is, excluding certain pictures that are against the interests of US, UK and Israel] pictures and news from the battlefield. Its our common policy to show only the destruction to some buildings or some stray bomb falling in some uninhabited place. And we do sometimes show those happy children running alongside the fallen structures. That is to show you that we are not harming any children or civilians. We want only terrorists. Some of those images of the poor Israeli and US soldiers sweating it out in the battlefield may appear a little cruel. So, viewer dicretion is recommended.... once more , Hail US, Hail Israel, Hail UK....this is Mr. George dickless signing off for CNN news...

So, what u just saw above is a brief intro from CNN to those uninitiated souls on the ways of the Western world. The crusader wrote this after seeing some shocking and gruesome pictures in a Lebanese website. What I saw there really left me in a state of disbelief and pain. Its a shame to the modern civilised world that small innocent kids are slaughtered in this way. The irony of the whole thing is that, a country which is supposed to be the most modern of them all is supporting the cruelty of such magnitude of which even stoneage men would be ashamed of. So citizens of the civilised world[hope there would be some civilised soul from USA and Israel], please sign this petition to save the innocent Lebanese citizens.
Visit- to sign the petition. U may think that these kind of petitions are irrelevant at these times when even the UN itself couldn't do anything. But, this is better than doing please sign...

Chkout this site to see more gruesome pictures of absolute cruelty.....
with pain and anger, your crusader Praveen

Corporate Posted by Picasa


Posted by Praveen


Corporate..Until today, that word conveyed to me pictures of men clad in Raymond suitings sitting around an oval conference table discussing incomprehensible things. But today, after watching the movie of the same name, I know that there's something more to it than the outward glamour. Not even in my wildest dreams could have I imagined that the real corporate world is something like this. A murky world where money and power is all that matters, where love and friendship doesn't even come to the picture.
Madhur Bhandarkar is certainly one of the finest among the new age bollywood filmakers, who are not bothered about the usual song and dance bollywood melodramas. We need these kind of films, which have more than a touch of realism in it. And for the kind of reserach that he has done for the making of this film, he has to be given a pat. This is evident in every small scene in the film. His hard hitting approach really strikes a chord with the audience. He has cleverly taken a jab at some of the corporate giants, most notably the venerable pesticide producer 'Coca Cola'. And, we should never forget that these are the times when Coca Cola is the main sponsor of many big releases and major stars themselves star in their ad campaigns.

The story revolves around 2 corporate giants, Sehgal Group of Industries and Marwah Industries. What i liked the most in the film is both the MDs of this organisations are shown as corrupt and power hungry. In a normal bollywood film, you would have seen an ultra decent man as the head of one and a man with the worst possible qualities as the head of the other. But here, both of the men outdo the other in treachery. The only thing that is in their mind is profit. For that, they are prepared to go to any extent. Even using a bollywood actress to seduce a minister and make him sign a deal in their favour. To imagine all these happens in India, really makes me hang my head in shame.

Kay Kay Menon is intensity personified on screen. This guy is the next big thing in hindi filmdom. Bipasha Basu delivers a controlled performance. I would rate this as the best performance of her career. This kind of roles suit her more than those umpteen skimpy dress clad ones. With this film, I was able to see her emote for the first time on screen.At the start, Rajath Kapoor gave an impression of a righteous person, but beneath that calm persona is a monster who loves money more than anything. Raj Babbar also played his part as a god fearing yet cunning man. Also worth mentioning are the guest appearances from ad guru Prahlad Kakkar and master lyricist Javed Akhthar.

So, all in all, Corporate is an enjoyable realistic film, from an industry notorious for its mushy love stories and reduntant themes. Way to go, Bhandarkar........
with love,
your crusader Praveen

No more
The crap rolls out your mouth again
Haven't changed, your brain is still gelatin
Little whispers circle around your head
Why don't you worry about yourself instead?

Gossip burning on the tip of your tongue
You lie so much you believe yourself
Judge not lest ye be judged yourself
Holier than thou

Holier than thou

10. What's my signature dancing song?
Linkin Park- Somewhere I Belong
And I’ve got nothing to say
I can’t believe I didn’t fall right down on my face
(I was confused)
Looking everywhere only to find
That it’s not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
(So what am I)What do I have but negativity
’Cause I can’t justify the way,
everyone is looking at me(Nothing to lose)
Nothing to gain/ hollow and alone
And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own
those lines really tells the whole story of my dancing adventures. Am such a bad dancer that the whole dancefloor crowd would stop dancing and would stare at me.

11. What's my current theme song?
Aerosmith's Livin' on the edge
There's somethin' wrong with the world today
I don't know what it is
Something's wrong with our eyes
We're seein' things in a different way
And God knows it ain't his
It sure ain't no surprise
Livin' on the edge
Livin' on the edge
yeah, my life's really on the edge. BUT there's
Something right with the world today
And everybody knows it's me......

12.What do others think is my current themesong?
Bon Jovi- Have a nice day
Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,I say,
Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day
thts somewhat right..i try to keep a smiling face to those who gets in my face.... well, u can't attack with your smile and hit....then sing..''have a nice the hospital''....

13.What shall they play at my funeral?
The offspring- Can't Repeat
Memories are bittersweet
The good times we can't repeat
Those days are gone and we can never get them back
Now we must move ahead (woah)
Despite our fear and dread (woah)
We're all just wishing we could stop,
but Life goes on
Come of age Can't hold on
Turn the page Time rolls on
Wipe your eyes Yesterday laughs Tomorrow cries
no way this is gonna happen.....they would be playing ...''don't repeat'' as a request to god.....

14. What type of men/women do I like?
Megadeath's Something I Am Not
It makes me sad to hear you say you love me
I know you only love what I can do for you
If you were the one that was leading a charge
Would you notice if I missed a day or two
hmm....I don't like these kinda people....who don't love you from your the shuffler got it wrong

15. How's my love life?

BLOCKED Posted by Picasa


Posted by Praveen

Hello citizens of democratic free india,


The Indian Govt has issued a directive to all service providers to block access to certain sites which they consider is a serious threat to the nation's security. And the list of site includes all the millions of blogs. being hosted by various sites like Did u hear the Govt's explanation for this bloody directive? They are saying that some blogs are used by terrorist organisations to communicate their secret messages. he hee....even though am seething with anger at this extreme step from our govt, i couldn't help laughing at this truly wonderful logic. Imagine this.. 2 lashkar terrorists starting a blog... 1st terrorist posts a message on their next operation.. 2nd terrorist accesses the blog, reads the post and go to the comments section and reply.... all this in a site, which can be accessed by any person who has an internet connection.. Does the Indian govt think that these terrorists are some characters of some doordarshan soap to be so brainless? And mind you, this is a day when terrorists are sending messages encrypted in pictures, which would appear normal to anyone who looks into it. Would any person in his right mind think of passing messages through such a public domain? Maybe, he may think, if that person is a member of parliament or one of the Hon. ministers in the UPA govt.

The decision for ban is said to have been taken after the Mumbai blasts last week. But did the govt forget that it was a blog named mumbaihelp, which came as a reliable source for information about the missing persons. It also co-ordinated the relief activities at the various centres. All this was made possible because some good samaritans with similar thinking came together in blogosphere. Why did the govt. fail to see the good side of it all? Instead it cooked up a dark side, which is non existent at best. Blogs like IndiaUncut are contributing more creative thoughts on the future of India than all those elected representatives in parliament, who are being paid exhorbitant salaries for the same thing.
This directive is a direct attack on freedom of expression, of the kind seen in such countries as Pakistan and China. Do we want to be in the same black list with those countries? Does India want to earn name as a country which keeps the free thinking of its citizens in chains? India is slowly on this path going by recent developments. The 'da vinci code' saga is another case in point. SHAME ON U..UPA.... SHAME ON U.... GOVT OF INDIA....

U cannot keep our mouths shut forever. The free gateway is our answer to you... Mind u, the internet is not your party's treasure and u have no right to deny us.... we'll strike back with all the bloggers of the world... unite... clear up your thoughts ...log on to blogger...and start fighting....we will fight till the end......
with love, your crusader, Praveen

Crusader turns 1

Its been one year since the crusader started his journey in blogosphere...1 year and 4 days, to be precise...It was on July 5 2005 that I started blogging with an anti-bush poem...Since then, its been an incredible one year in which I wrote about subjects ranging from Dan Brown to reservation. And, am proud to say that blogging has helped me to grow as a person. I learned to view all the problems from various perspectives. This has kept me in good stead when facing real life problems...
Blogging gave me many new friends, like Akhil, Rockus, Sushma, Arvind, Shyam...and many more.......and a few haters too(sorry, not gonna mention them..ok, if u insist, i wud reveal one guy called George.W.Bush).
And what more, I could perform well in 2 job interviews because of my blog..In both interviews, I blabbered atleast 10 minutes on various issues I've written here. Thankyou, my dear blog 4 all this.....U changed my life......On this occasion, I would like to thank all who have encouraged me at various points of writing this blog. Hope u'll continue to do so in the future....and also hope that i could write a thank you for you on the 50th anniversary of crusadertvm....So lemme go and blow that single candle burning there on top of that delicious 1st birthday cake.... its party timeeeeeeee.....
with love, your crusader Praveen
