I hate.....

And here goes my ''hate" list........in no particular order....

(hmmm that somehow sounds.......Weird...... :-) )

......and one more thing before u read this list.....if somethin' offends u........just take it easy.

1) Hypocrisy and hypocritical people. I just can't stand having such people around me.

2) Religious fundamentalism (+ fundamentalists and fanatics).

3) Flowers........now settle down people.....it's not my fault....i somehow grew up hating flowers!
I just cannot stand the fragrance or the feel of them....... :-()

4) Conservative crap.

5) People who dress up like freaks just to be different from the rest of the world.

6) People who smell......use soap while bathing or at least use a dio. for everyone's sake.

7) People who are insensitive to other people's problems.
( nothing to do with no. 6 over here...... :-)......ohhh and also no. 1 )

8) Back stabbers.

9) Theocracy.

10) Racism.

11) Casteism.

13)Hype......especially the hype that surrounds celebrities/socialites/movies/parties....

14) People who shy away from taking the initiative when working in a team.

15) People who idolize movie actors/actresses and constantly keep blabbering abt them all the time.

16) The typical "masala movies" that bollywood/tollywood churn out ever year.

17) People who take to hunting as a sport or as a recreation. I just cannot understand why people do that? I mean what fun it is to kill unsuspecting and helpless animals?. This should really stop.

18) People who don't value their parents or family.

19) People who don't have the f*&k about how things go in the world but want to be the expert commentators on everything in the world. ( I'm talking about the so called 'experts' on tv and in media today.......especially if you've ever watched FOX news or most of the Indian news channels.... you'd certainly feel the same way)

20) Syncophancy & Syncophants.

21) Non-vegetarians who derive 'psychotic' happiness from poking fun at vegetarians.
I don't know why some non-vegetarians luv asking vegetarians whether they would like to try eating meat....i don't know what pleasure it gives them. I'm a veggy , and i have no problems sitting beside a meat eating person at dinners.....i don't poke fun at them?!

22) Being the center of attention anywhere (ok....let me also add that....I'm not exactly the center of attention kinda guy ,when in a crowd) ....and I'm fine with that.

23) People who like to humiliate others to extract a laugh from others (....when in a grp).

24) Losing or giving up on anything without putting in any kinda effort.

25) People who are narrow minded.

26) Cats.....of all types,sizes and shapes....i really hate them....actually, I'm scared of them.....they are the most unpredictable living things on earth......well, maybe after humans..... :-)

27) People who "mock" others........just 'cause they don't know what the other one is talkin' about....i mean when someone talks about current events & he gets mocked.....
This really irritates to me a great extent.....i sometimes feel like just breaking the nose of that person...

28) The feeling of helplessness in a situation.........i don't want to be in that position ever.

29) People with no sense of humor.

30) Being down with cold.

Well, enough of this hate......I'm kinda filled with hate right now :-) ......should have done this before the "I Luv" list like Shruthi....

A new link....

Adding one more link to my blogroll.....

......nice blog.

Words of the President.....

Well we recently got comcast+basic cable in our apartment, so we are kind privileged by the choice of watching a few more channels than usual for the next six months. (Of the few channels...only discovery and Mtv2 are the only ones tht might arise one's interest....and oh the remaining are Hispanic and religious stuff!)

So when i had my dinner y'sday nite and was abt to leave for lab i came across a rerun of the President's speech this morning addressed to the ASIA Society (didn't know before tht such thing existed!). I never thought that i would sit thru a major part of this President's speech ever.....well i did...actually upto the point where he started talking abt the US's relations with the Pakis. ( blame my Indian instincts for tht!). Was kind impressed by wht he had to say.....i mean...it indicates a gud positive approach from his administration towards India.

But had to disagree with him on the nuclear deal.... we need more concessions on that. We just can't open up all our reactors to International inspections, we need to maintain minimum deterrence and for the reactors also vital for our strategic energy needs. Already we have given in too much and i think we need to take a strong stand on this. No more budging on this!

As far as out sourcing is concerned, he had this to say....
The area of America's relationship with India that seems to receive the most attention is outsourcing. It's true that a number of Americans have lost jobs because companies have shifted operations to India. And losing a job is traumatic. It's difficult. It puts a strain on our families. But rather than respond with protectionist policies, I believe it makes sense to respond with educational polices to make sure that our workers are skilled for the jobs of the 21st century.
I must say he made a gud point there. ( Well done......speech writers!)
All and all felt gud throughout out the speech...and had a couple of frowns here and there....but wasn't that bad. Now have to wait and see wht he says in India and more importantly how well does he convert his words into strong actions.

Being Cautious.......

Some Interesting developments on this issue!

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that France isn't being hypocritical in this matter.

And as for the Sainiks are concerned.............they are nothing but a bunch of dueshbags.....who inevitably end up every time on the wrong side of the story!
