Yes, I am doshmukt. This world's court gave this clear verdict and now I know I have just acheived this feat on clear grounds.
I will strictly order my kins to bury these verdicts of innocence when I grow old and leave this heavenly abode for super abode as these might come in handy there aswell.
God is great!!!
Yes, I confess. This is my confession statement. Buying awards for 30k. This too to deprive a genuine winner of the award but this is my confession statement and I should be prosecuted as per law of land. Did I mention that I had met a gangster as well and drank tea with him in a foreign land. Yes, drinking tea is not a crime and at that time he hadn't committed heinous crime, so I should be excused for that offence.
My conscience rose above the limits of fear and I took the opportunity to confess.
May God grant me the forgiveness.
2nd January and it is a foggy morning today. I got up with a little heavy head and getting tea in bed could be the thing I desired the most and I got one without asking as my dear is very prompt at that.
Sipping tea as I surfed the whatsapp messages, I saw one quote, "cry at your troubles and they will double, laugh at your trouble and it disappears like bubble." Mind was trying it's best to put that piece of info in head but it kept getting rejected firmly by my stealth brain.
I couldn't eaven dream of calling my trouble as trouble without the risk of getting hit on head, let alone laugh at it.
Other troubles be it where they are, I try my level best not to poke the "birni ka khota" and only wait for them to resolve by pity of God........,
Yes, Sun is shining bright on the horizon and I am beginning the first day of 2017 by a note of thanks to all dear friends who stood by me and penned valuable inputs upon my insignificant rants.
I strive to work my heart and mind to full potential towards my goals. A thought did creep into my mind upon the recent speech of our hon'ble Prime Minister of 7:30 P.M. yesterday, and the word that hit the mind was "BEIMAAN" and the resolve that they won't be spared. Now this classification only meant for the business class because these are the ones who steal tax. Now big tycoon mega conglomerates who take billions of loans and just switch themselves to another country may have been beimaan but now they have left for their own good and are imaandaar contributors to that nation's economy with their clean pounds and dollars.
Why this much fuss of crucifixing the beimaans? Just tell them to leave the entire nation to be hogged by politicians to their heart's extent and join the Naga baba community in the himalayas.
God knows who is Imaandaar.
What a dramatic scene : Behind this Olive branch are the terrorist outfits which continue with their agenda unabated. Warning by China it will block India's bid to ban these outfits in U.N.
In what world are we living. The whole world is fighting this menace of terrorist outfits and what a clever manner the highest echleon honchos turn blind eye to the rhetorics of terrorist factions as if they will be concerned only when this snake tries it's go at biting them.
God knows If Modi Goverment will accept the Olive branch of gesture, but one thing is sure, two things can never run side by side.
1) Scrapping all facilities of all politicians. They have to to get their renumeration from their followers. Their all properties will stand seized and schools will be opened in them.
2) In parliament every politician will be bringing own tiffin to eat. No freebies.
3) All taxations will be scrapped. All present tax officials have to teach poor students in the houses vacated by politicians.
4) Voluntary Swecchaa Daan of 10% of profits will be expected of all Indian citizens, to be deposited in "India Welfare Fund".
There will be no checking of accounts. It will be a voluntary affair. They can give more, but it will be their wish, no forcing.
5) All religious bodies will be allowed to practice their religion within the confinement of their personal homes. All processions or public show of religious grandeur will be treated as National disgrace and dealt with strong laws with an option to leave the country for their good or be hanged till death (their choice). All places of worship will be remodified to become Hospitals with free services to all citizens.
6) Logo will be the skeleton head of Trinasaurus and all volunteers can wear this type of face and start canvassing for the Pagla Party to come in power.
7) All Indian citizens will be given 10 days time to disclose their black money abroad and bring it back to India and employ it in rebuilding the nation. No questions will be asked. All their money. Anyone failing to do so, and later found out will be dealt according to the law of land. First will be their photographs pasted in all public urinal pots. Rest we can devise more laws.
8) All system of caste classification will stand scrapped and all titles of surnames will be considered just mere names. Merit will lead and all poor will be provided with best possible infrastructure to sharpen and spruce up their talents.
I, RioZee hold all rights to this Pagla Party.
Ladies are very particular about their things. I think it is an inbuilt mechanism in their brains. If by chance one opens their wardrobe and closes it, without touching anything, they would know that wardrobe had been opened and start demanding clarifiacations. One should thank the Goverment that their one announcement made the once the hidden arena to open up and all wealth of hidden preservations came out into the open. Mind admires in awe and is in sheer admiration of their talent at acquisition and preservation.
Overheard a talk that was going on between a sophisticated Lady and her Mother in law in temple, "this towel is particularly God's bath towel."
Yes, They are particular with their things aswell as God's things aswell. No messing there.
This takes me back to the writings about the Alexander era. I will try to keep it as simple as possible.
Alexander had been impressed by Dandamis, a great Indian saint and had asked of him to leave India and go with him to his country, to which he had refused, saying that he was happy serving one master, God and the meager things he needed to support the body were abundant.
One of the disciples of Dandamis, Calanus, Indian name Kalyana, got lured and left India and accepted Alexander as Master and left with him. Calanus grew weaker there and realized his mistake and took upon a decision to self immolate himself. He conveyed his desire to Alexander and everything was arranged for him to depart in pomp and glory. He was provided the best horse which he gave to his greek disciple Lysimachus.
Calanus didn't flinch in fire, and accepted his death smiling. He prophesized about Alexander's death in Babylon, saying, we shall meet in Babylon.
I see people harping grammar and its rules to be followed with strong killing voice. Take a chill pill guys. Life isn't as bad as you are making it. When I die, hopefully, God will not be giving me a surprise test to write a grammatically correct composition, and condemn me to eternal hell for a wrong use of Past perfect continuous tense.
God knows why I have written this post. For students, learn all while you can as later the zeal and stamina will be lost finding the past participle.

Very beautiful take on Suicide by Sriram Aiyar written with emotions simply breathtakingly well.
I have faced myself many scenarios where the mind of the person enduring was shaken to such extreme levels that anything could have happened. Lucky are the ones that get timely god sent counsel.
Many times simple jokes lead to further aggravated situations. I remember my travel in train where four friends played a prank on a poor friend. They were returning jovially from Ajmer after visiting Dargah and were returning back to Mumbai.
Suddenly phone of a friend rang and as he started to talk his other friend grabbed the phone and said, "Bhabhi ji, we changed plans and are headed for Mussoorie. "
I was shocked to hear the conversation. The victim friend tried to say something but her wife knowing nothing had started her barrage of accusations and the guy's male ego hurt to the extent that he started talking of a divorce.
The whole atmosphere in my compartment had grown tense.
Suicide was what he was thinking as he stood at the gate of running train smoking trying to swallow the insult in front of his friends.
I had sensed the need of sound advice, which I was bursting to shell out upon him and struck a conversation.
To cut the long story short, I had thwarted a suicide attempt.
There have been many instances which I could easily relate to the book.
All in all a great endeavor.
Whatever I do is right. I am famed. I can hold two three countries citizenship whether allowed by my country's rules or not. I form company abroad and when pointed of my wrong doing, instead of admitting mistakes, I point daftly back at the person as maligning my stature. Supreme Court too is afraid to accept petitions on my probe, not even the PM of India.
By now intelligent ones must have understood what I am ranting about.
Kids will be kids and as a parent I had always opted for toys from which they could learn something new. When I bought a colgate packet and seeing the pictorial play for kids, I bought all four types as I wanted to spruce up their thinking abilities.
I gave my nephew the package and I was amazed to see the gleam in his eyes and an instant run in to see what treasure lied within. The luminous pictures reminded me of my fancy to picture books in my childhood days.
The pictures of different theme sets of magical sea world were really impressive. I understood how much brains these Colgate people must have put in to bring it on platter for kids. I remembered my childhood when I used to buy Frootie candy and I was more interested in the wrapper containing the different sets of animal pictures which I used to paste on the album and look for the missing animal pictures with frenzy. I still remembered the total number of pictures were 90. I Had succeeded in filling the the album. Those were plain days without technology but now kids were technology oriented.
Colgate Magical Sea World was based on 4 themes, Coral Reef, Pirate Ship, Sea Magic and Treasure Hunt.
Nephew started hollering, "Tauji, taau ji, Bring some more packets. There will be more of different themes". I pacified him to be satisfied with what he has got. When they launch some star wars sets, you will get them first. He was a little disappointed but started playing with them. He started explaining me the picture stories like an adept.
" Taau ji, you know this, you know that," as if I knew nothing. It looked kiddish to me but the enthusiasm with which he went into the plot made me play the game as he wanted.
"Have you gone to the bottom of the sea?" He asked me and I admitted that I hadn't but one day I would take him there and he could play with real octopuses. He rolled his eyes in bewilderment saying, "Octopus will catch us and eat us alive." I tried to appear shocked and said we will go with knives to save ourselves. The amazing part was he knew he could save himself with knife but his reaction was ultimate," Taau ji, aap to gaye." (Taau ji, you will be dead.)
I tried to cajole him, "won't you save your Taau ji from the octopus," and he said concernedly, "I have to save myself also, but after coming out I will definitely try to get you out."
I thanked him for saving my life, and he stressed upon me to take him along if I really wanted to be saved from wild sea creatures.
I was thinking if it was his child brain just wanting well of me, or it was his calculated efforts of going to sea in reality. Whatever the reason, I was deeply moved and asked once more, "how are you so confident of yourself?" He said, Taau ji, "these are all friends, if we do not harm them. " I got the point.
I am really thankful to Colgate for thinking up of this offering for kids to build their imagination.
RioZee sat thinking about the latest innovations in the car making arena and the giant car makers spending heftily upon bringing about latest innovative technology efficient cars to the consumers. Gone were the days of simple cars.
There were many new offerings that attracted the mind and the one that had hit strongly upon the mind was the latest offering by the almighty tycoon, Nissan, the Datsun Redi-go. Mind wasn't getting off the features that had been portrayed and in this age of digitization, the sleek mobile holder kept tantalizing the mind.
The speed recognition steering wheel was a feature unavailable in great many models and this was one thing offered in a hatchback segment priced utmost competitively. Mind wasn't grasping the features on offer. A test drive would clear everything and laying hands on the steering wheel at the first chance was indeed craved by the mind.
The ground clearance was also really great keeping in mind the speed bumps hither and thither.
Another great feature that lured the mind was the small turning radius. Yes, this was surely the utmost needed feature as taking out and placing the car in small places was really a heck of a task for a man who didn't opt for the luxury of a chauffeur and always drove in self drive.
Mind always boggled seeing a road bump and whenever it heard a thud sound hitting the lower end of car, heart always skipped a beat giving the mind the added torture. The latest offering of Datsun Redi-Go looked really cool for these features. The new ventilated disc-brake feature too looked really cool. In this busy world with busiest roads, applying breaks every now and then was a common dilemma. Saving the life of others with pro efficient brakes was one hell of a feature presented.
Datsun redi-go amazed the mind by it's cutting edge technology. World was changing rapidly.
It's really tough to find a car with the features of your liking but this was one presentation which boasted of all the features one could imagine. Now test drive could only prove the things that were stated and I looked at a test drive in Delhi area only as I stayed there. I was sure the features were really super great and that also from the leading brand of the world. How on earth could I miss the opportunity.
Driver airbag was another superb feature which was simply astounding to find at this devastatingly low price band.
Mobile docking station was really remarkable feature to see in the brochure.
Child lock feature was another thing that was really convincing for safety reasons as there was small child at home and I was really impressed by the company's research work in designing such a great marvel. I really appreciated the great effort went on in the making of this great car.
Datsun redi-go, the real urban class allured upon my mind now to
plan a great test drive as early as possible.
Now he is working for a strategic win for UP for Congress. Is Bihar government paying for the services or he has resigned to join Congress.
Travels were real tough in olden era as my father reminisced his times and I had been all ears to listen to his fascinating tales. He confided that travels for leisure were never even thought of in families. Only business trips to nearby town were done. Pilgrimage trip to Kedarnath etc. were done after the karta of family was done with all the obligations of household and distributed his wealth amongst his sons. Only then would he leave upon the long strenuous journey spanning minimum six months or so and knowing very well in his heart that he may not even make it back to his children as they could fall prey to ferocious animals in the jungles.
I marveled at the progress of science whence I was witnessing the extreme changes in ways of travel and in fact totally hassle free stays all planned well ahead of departure with lowest possible rates one could fathom. I mused at my bargain skills and knowing the tried and tested modules by which I could land myself cheapest deals for travel. Now leisure travels were a common feature and why not! Life is to be lived.
My Europe tour, all set to begin in September, all plans to organize this had already shaped up, thanks to Yatra. Money was a concern so all possible options were seen and lastly, if brand could be had along with cheapest possible prices, what else could I have asked for. Yatra had everything, from competitive pricing on International Flights to cheap hotel stay combinations which greatly helped me to add three days more to my itinerary.
Everything planned and booked with all insurance options in place if I do need some emergency help in a foreign land. My mom and dad were also going with me and this was going to be a marvelous family trip with family.
World had entered into a digital era and all those who saw the change and could run the pace of digitization were becoming more public friendly with enormous sea of opportunities in their baskets. One such platform that took our heart was Yatra. The savings did count but more things that counted were the ease of cancellation and rebooking at the last moment and the customer services to be effective 24*7. Everything was digitized at finger tips but getting personal one on one talk was added benefit here.
My full family is looking forward to this trip and dreams have begun with tantalizing Paris, Switzerland, Barcelona, Spain all moving the mind with their beauties✈️.
My past experiences had been real bad during my Singapore tour and I didn't want any goof ups and had decided upon Yatra after careful deliberations. I had heard a lot about it and seen great positive reviews but had chat with friends who had utilized their services and all were fully pleased with Yatra with their above the class services of extraordinary repute. I do look forward to my tour with the enthusiasm I booked the tickets. I sincerely cannot wait for the tour to begin. Kids are more chirpy and planning and adding places to visit, thanks to the digitization.
Respected Manmohan ji spoke for all the more respected Soniya ji and Rahul ji. "Government is not keen on GST implementation. Herald case filing on Soniya and Rahul and thinking of cooperation from congress."
Now mind is bullshitted. Holding nation at ransom. Court is doing it's duty and wrongdoers should be penalized. Let all progress rot with Manmohan ji and Soniya ji and ofcourse Rahul ji.
Stringent rules are need of the hour. A learned man like Manmohan ji has been completely brainwashed. May god bless all.
City: Pataliputra ( modern Patna )
State : Magadh (modern Bihar)
Myself: The King Chandragupta
( Modern Rio De La Sciocco)
Rio sat thinking at the passage of time from the era of Golden Bird whence the fiery zeal that had taken to knit the great empire and run smoothly. The great seats of learning where people from all over the world came to acquire knowledge.
The vision: The proper vision in necessary in all spheres of life and the way politics runs around all vision looks to be in shambles. Task at hand lay in design of city. Modern Patna looked hopeful of my finding best solution for it's woes. Mind reverted back to Nero, the king of Rome, who had gotten the whole city burnt down purposely to redesign and build a marvelous city. The folklore too goes to this day that "Rome was burning and Nero was playing music on flute."
I too needed to make a history repetition and burn down and redesign. A tough call it seemed but I was RioDeLaSciocco, the ultimate King of era bygone and my priorities were all set in my mind. This being a flood zone as well as earthquake zone all caution was needed in design. Town had to be raised in considerable height as well as all houses needed earthquake resistance structure. Sewage system too needed meticulously designed structure.
Road design: Road was to be networked in such a manner that it would have highway type six lane road and proper exits going into blocks of townships. Cycling would be encouraged and have proper barricaded short cut routes for Bicycle commuters. A person could flaunt his prized car but to go one kilometer he would have to take proper exit and hit the network of this intricately designed road and reach his destination enjoying his drive. Roads properly barricaded so that no stray animals could play a spoiler and cause damage. One lane would be for super speeders and no ordinary car would be allowed to ply in the town itself. All ultra modern ones with all emission norms and laced with compulsory airbags only allowed. All rest cars scrapped. No tole taxes would be applicable in the city and all taxes deducted automatically annually from car linked credit card. Speeding tickets too would be charged automatically to the card by computerized cameras.
Now for this to happen existing structures had to be burnt down and ample funds were needed to make this dream city. Schools and hospitals too were to be constructed of world class facility. Recreational centers, shopping malls etc. too would be erected for the public benefits.
Now this would be surely envy of the world.
Booking to this city may start once the chief minister of Bihar gets my idea implant on this head.
Now this city of Patna bears the heritage of being the grand capital of India as golden bird with its boundaries running up to central China. I am proud of my heritage and would do anything to revamp and make it a better place.

Chennai floods and the calamities show how far back India is in disaster management. Death of 18 patients in hospital in ICU, due to power failure due to flooding. Now will the politicians shake their asses from the bloody couch and start working on dire reforms.
I sometimes wonder what a lineage of support system India is creating. A politician once getting an office for one term gets entitled to salary for life with all privileges. Now where is his accountability on his failures. Innocent public keeps paying taxes and their life is full of risks at every nook and corner. Many casualties could have been avoided by sheer availability of tools and proper coordination. I hope lesson is learnt and India wakes up to management of disasters.
I pity Bihar which faces floods every year and heavy losses are incurred but still we have politicians with negligible resolve to bring out concrete plans. They are just busy throwing largesse at their respective vote banks trying their very best to appease them. Public too, satisfied and happy with the progress and keep on suffering without any respite.
