Honey Bees in real mess :( ...telecom alert !!!



This post actually hibernated in my drafts folder for a long time...got a bit laid back and lazy in the mean time ,so didnt post it...
My name is khan --- many people liked this movie ,but i am not the one among them :) ...i liked New York far better... Anyways this article is not about My name...or Shahrukh , Kajol chemistry...infact this is about honeybees and telecom engineers....he he he... seems to be a distant match...huh ....
"EINSTEIN THEORY OF DECLINING HONEYBEES"...courtesy "MNIK" It was being speculated way before, that "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left." ...did Einstein uncle actually said this??? I wonder if he was a physicist or a bee keeper/apiarist :) ...I didnt find any official website citing this Einstein's quote...
Across America, millions of honey bees are abandoning their hives and flying off to die, leaving beekeepers facing ruin and US agriculture under threat. And to date, no one knows why. A professor from German University has recently conducted one experiment and he has contributed the declining population of honeybees to cellphones.
The theory goes like this: cellphone's high frequency electromagnetic radiation --------> interfering with honey bee's navigation system---------> they couldn't return to their hives --------->deviate/die--------> no pollination --------->food scarcity -----------> humans die ......think....think...think....
This actually seems to be a scary horror movie...our love for mobile phone could cause massive food shortage...since world's major harvests fail...
My views:
1. What I have gathered from this experiment is that, they simply got a wireless home phone base station, put it on the maximum setting and left it at the bottom of the hive. Now come on we don't expect the bees to be wandering around the tower :) ...these tower act as microwaves, our bees must have got baked.
2. Radiation deviate the bees...then where do they go?? do they die or migrate or what??? I heard something called colony collapse disorder...may be this is the answer to this...i wonder...
3. Bees are not the only pollinators, nature has its back up plans...there is wind pollination, bat pollination and insect pollination...so there is no chance that just after 4 years of bees extinction humans will die...
Thank god we have our staple diet rice , wheat , maize , barley which don't need bee pollination...
4. If these issues keep on piling like this, then what would happen to the telecom engineers?...cellphone , GPS system , blackberrys , i phones , radars......
sab pe brake lag jaega :( ...
5. Microwaves have been used for terrestrial tv & radio far longer than mobile phones and yet nobody attacks them :)

According to me, may be the problem is: illegal erection of cellphone towers in residential areas...and the residents are cool about it coz their mouths are shut with huge money from service providers. MCD proposed a new policy which says, none of the service providers will be allowed to erect a cellphone tower in residential areas provided there is no other alternative. Like the nearest tower of that service provider is at a distance from that area and there is no other option left since that provider doesnt share towers with any other company. This is a good step by the municipal corporation...now atleast they will require a NOC from COAI... cellphone towers are damaging the city's skyline...

There is a 2 way problem with the cell tower - if they are less in number then there is reception problem, cell would utilize more power as it is far from the tower hence more radiation...thats why it is good to increase the number of towers... but again increasing the number means spreading to residential areas which will lead to biological problems...

In foreign countries no such towers are visible since they are using the latest technology...They follow the "Not in my Back Yard" concept :)
I wonder what more theories would be put forward...it is our scientists who invent technology without knowing the side effects and they are the one who forbids us from using the same sooner or later...and now the main target is telecom sector!!! today may be we can live a day or two without food but imagine a day without any communication...its scary na...
Getting people to stop using cell phones would be as difficult as getting the United States to stop invading the countries that hold the largest oil reserves on the planet. So its better , sweety bees , stay away from the radiations coz we can't do much help in this regard and keep sweetening our lives with honey... :)

music ka maha muqaabla

Today it was valentine's day special and the songs sung in the show were just amazingggg....
Among them the bestest was "in dino" ...thats my all time favourite...
I can't control myself and hence here is the lyrics...I just love it...

in dino, dil mera, mujhse hai keh raha
tu khaab saja, tu ji le jara
hai tujhe bhi izaazat, karle tu bhi muhabbat

berang si hai badi zindagi kuchh rang to bharoon
main apani tanahaayi ke waaste abbb kuchh toh karoon
jab mile thodi fursat , mujhse karle muhabbat
hai tujhe bhi izaazat, karle tu bhi muhabbat

usko chhupaakar main sabse kabhi le chaloon kahin door...
aankhon ke pyaalon se pita rahoon usake chehre ka noor
iss zamaane se chhupakar , puri karloon main hasrat
hai tujhe bhi izaazat, karle tu bhi muhabbat
in dino, dil mera, mujhse hai keh raha
tu khaab saja, tu ji le jara
hai tujhe bhi izaazat, karle tu bhi muhabbat ...
And i loved the way Shaan dedicated a (chand sifaarish...) song to his lovely wife...it was just tooo good...and Debojit flattered us with "aaoge jab tum" which was also dedicated to his sweetheart...

The show came to an end with Shaan kissing his wife on stage...and the hilarious part was, Shaan's reaction after the kiss...he he...it was so cute...sudden realisation that cameras were actually focussing him :)

So love is in the air......
:)
Happy Valentine's Day to alllllllll !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An hour left!

Waiting for Shahid!!! uhhhh it's going to be the best award night in history...Shahid sorry Fhahid is going to anchor this time...Just waiting for his "Koi F*** ?" dialouge and his cuteeeeee smile...
I think it's gonna be a nice comedy show with shahrukh and shahid at their best...

All Izz Not Well...

Whether it's a child expecting his results or a teen's status message, a broken heart or a guy in his last round of interview, even an oldie on his death bed, Everyone is influenced by Aamir's famous "All Izz Well" technique.
Today I came across an article that is quite hilarious, so thought of sharing it...
This "piece" gives us an idea of the impact "3 Idiots" had on young minds...
It says...
Guptajee, along with his family, went for a night show of 3 Idiots. All of them had a great time together.
Next day Guptajee's son woke up late, yawning and lazy, small Pintu said to his father "Papa I want to sell popcorns" . Mr. Gupta smiled and replied "Beta you are small now. First complete your studies and then think about other stuffs." Smart Pintu shot back "Papa didn't u see yesterday? the whole crowded theatre and it's ambience...The popcorn counter was overflooded. And by the way Aamir said Karo wahi jisme mann lage". Hearing this Guptajee alerted his son about his doomed future.
Pintu said casually "
Bakra kya jaane uski jaan ka kya hoga? Seekh ghusegi ya saala kheema hoga.
Koi na jaane apna future kya hoga."
Now Guptajee's anger went out of bounds, he frowned and fumbled "You have gone insane. Do you know how much I am spending for your studies?"
But Pintu beta was in so much awe of Aamir uncle, he replied "Papa, Aamir uncle said, if you want to enter classroom and study, you don't need money. What you need is just a Uniform. So chill dad".
Now Guptajee started trembling. He called on his wife and shouted "See, your son is showing me attitude. Stop his pocket money from today itself".
Pintu gave 1 notorious smile "Papa aap apna pocket money apne paas rakhiye aur main apna attitude apne paas rakh leta hoon ".
Mr. Gupta lost his control and slapped Pintu and asked him "Ab popcorn bechega?"
Pintu didn't cry neither was he upset , infact he put his right hand on his heart and said "All izz well, All izz well."
Fir to apna mast Pintu hero "honth ghumaya, seeti bajaya " and went out to play. And Guptajee was left alone stunned ,with his wife in the house.

Really, 3 Idiots brought a revolutionary change in our minds. We have young Bhagat Singhs in each and every house today. And the entire lot of parents are left out with one phrase "All izz not well".

Why India still has social issues??...

Today India celebrated the glory of its 61st republic day in Rajpath, Delhi...Though again i woke up late, but i was able to catch up with the remaining programme on tv...Amongst the dense cloud of fog i got glimpses of our famous ministers chidambaram , mamta banerjee , prime minister manmohan singh, speaker meira kumar and obviously the first lady pratibha patil...
President conferred the ashok chakra on major mohit sharma, major shreeram kumar, and havildar rajesh kumar...I felt a certain pride to see major rishima sharma, wife of major mohit sharma who received the award on behalf of her late husband...

What was most spectacular was the defence force of india...indian air force displayed the models of sukhoi (fighter aircraft designed by russia) and advanced trainer jet(british single engine)...DRDO flaunted its AGNI 3 (R73 missile) which carries nuclear weapons and shaurya missile (surface to surface strategic missile) with hypersonic speed...and not to miss the multi-faceted ROHINI , a battlefield surveillance radar...

The show came to an end with "jhankis" from different regions exhibiting their unique culture...
In these growing years India's defence has evolved to be much capable but what she lacks is the social reformers...Maybe Rahul Gandhi is the one as he is encouraging the youth of india to join politics...Because it is only YOU - the youth who can change the old orthodox beliefs of elders and initiate spreading harmony among different states, religion and caste...otherwise forget about "aman ki asha" among different countries...
if u don't have "aman" in your own country only...

Today India not only has divisons on the basis of religion but also caste wise and state wise division...look at the reservations made, it is promoting a certain group of people...whole education system is getting biased including IIT's and IIM's...we say our political leaders are corrupt, they do such things to get false publicity and votes from minority groups...but is the government only responsible? what about us?...
If someone asks his/her parents that he/she wants to marry a person from lower caste...they say "nooo"... see its us only who are differentiating nah? isn't it?...
Coming to state wise divison...look at the Telangana controversy...and then there's Mayawati who wants to divide UP into 3 states...thankfully Nitish Kumar atleast speaks about uniting Jharkhand and Bihar...Mamta Banerjee arranges free railway passes for Bengal artists...why?
Indian Railways belongs to Bengal or what? what is Raj Thackrey doing? throwing out biharis out of Maharashtra...and in retaliation i wonder what biharis are gonna do...funny mannn!!! our elders are so much pre-occupied with these issues...and what does the youth do? following their parent's footsteps?? come out of it...set your own ethics, this division among people on the basis of caste, state and religion are petty issues...just saying bombarding words about advancement doesn't makes you modern and updated...
Its high time, we have to vary from our pre-set ethics...
Ever thought about the illiteracy and corruption prevailing in states like bihar, jharkhand rajasthan,up?? one and only major issue is dowry...if you still believe in this kind of tradition then how do you call yourself as educated?...it's kind of a market where they sell guys on the basis of his educational qualification...IES is on rank 1 ...then comes engineers, doctors, ....and what is the youth doing? As i say ,following their tradition blindly...think!!! people say dowry is kind of aashirwaad from bride's family to the groom...then why not give less aashirwaad to the IES officer coz he is already settled and more aashirwaad to the less settled ones... :) :) :)
i request all you biharis, up-ites, marwaris, gujratis , punjabis, bengalis whosoever practises this evil of dowry...try to convince your parents regarding this, you can make a change...youth can remove this barrier of inter-caste, inter-state, inter-religion and the malpractise "dowry system"...if you can not convince them atleast don't follow these ETHICS when you grow up as parents...don't make your child's life a HELL...
what will be the outcome of all this bias? can you bring peace with your so called ETHICS??
NEVER...
If you want to make a better india...CHANGE YOURSELF...YOUR VIEWS...have clear unbiased thoughts without any influence, don't get supressed under the false idea of ethics...and please make some effort coz unless there is some heat you can never get water...
we can make a better india then...

P.S. : No offence to any caste ,creed or religion neither did i wanted to hurt the sentiments.
I am an Indian and i am proud to be one.

voice recognition.....

Today i felt like experimenting with my mobile...i thought of making use of this "voice recognition" facility...
i knew about this facility from the very beginning, but never actually tried my hands on it....
it was like first i had to go thro' this rigorous voice recognition training...
in which they will ask us to pronounce all such tongue twister crappy names...
so i am finally done with my training...
now i went to this voice command section...i heard how they pronounce "silent" "general" "missed call" ....i must say it was quite an experience :) ...
now i was happy that i'm gonna order my phone "papa" ... and without a second's delay the call will be done...
so in full enthusiasm i just went to standby mode...and spoke "zilent" (silent) and yesssss my phone went to silent mode...then "gggenerol" (general) back to general mode....
koool....
so now i thought lemme call bro...so i said "debayan"...ohhh shehhh...wats dis?
i got this list :
deepa
dtdc
bank
dev sir...
and now its "calling deepa" ....arey yaar...it was better to have called manually from the contact list or the shortcut key....
anyways now i decided to use voice commands "only" for putting the cell in "silent or general" mode...
and as far as calling is concerned , mann i will have to practise hardddd to get those names correct...or else i'll have to get a high quality microphone to make this recognition software a success....and moreover its not necessary that i'll get pin drop silence in my surroundings while making a call....
and i think wat i'll get outta all this is...someone will call on me as dipshikha...and i will correct and say...
no no its not dipshikha its "dddep sh ka"....

Tiger as Pet...???

Its damn cold here in ranchi but afternoons are cozy :) .....so i went to my balcony to comfort myself in the direct sunlight...hmmm itz amazinnn.... okie so i have my newspaper, 1 glass choco pista milk shake (courtesy me) and nokia 5610 with me...
newspaper 1st page, 2nd page , erghhhh its all borinnn shittt written here.... now milkshake is a better option.....and lemme stroll in the balcony.... ooohh there is this cute lil' dog in my neighbour's terrace chasing the birds frantically. i don't know what problem it (confused whether he/she) has with those chirping birds.....
wowww now this dog is actually standing on it's 2 legs resting other 2 on the parapet enjoying the panaroma...
or may be it is searching for some gossip or news/ or hitting on some female... i cudn't control myself...picked up my cell...nd click click...have a look....

come on doggy...look at me baby ....ya again click click.....

dogs seems to be wonderful posing from neighbour's terrace...at my place? ohh no..... i am afraid of dogs......they bark and they bite....uhhhh... now back to my newspaper...

what i see is "TIGER AS PETS"......are u kidding me?? ...huh and i was afraid that dogs bark and bite.....imagine what a tiger would do? roar and kill?.....goshhh!!! after some years i would see tiger on the terrace "smiling at me" "posing for me".....

Neways.....
The article says that Indonesian government is selling away 30 tigers as pet, coz they wanted to protect this critically endangered species from further poaching... come on

stop this crap
...the sole reason behind this is making money dude...
67000 pounds a pair imagine!!! It has become a status symbol for the elite group... even michael jackson, mike tyson had this passion...
Hey man! if you possess so much property then why not support poor humans who are in need of money rather than tigers who live peacefully in their habitats...
If real measures need to be taken, then environmentalists and government should take some precautionary measures against china's trade in tiger parts... chinese traders find india to be a potential supplier of tigers...use of tiger parts in chinese traditional medicine is the epicentre of poaching activities in china... and in the chinese new year 2010 which is also "year of tiger" the traders will find an opportunity to increase profits..."since everyone will demand a tiger skin next year"...

So INDIA BEWAREEE!!!!!! Please don't let these chinese exploit our assets...Save tigers and their habitats instead of destroying wildlife for human fantasies...

Hmmmm.....so i'm done with my milkshake, newspaper and photography...now back
to my room...may be i'll watch some movie :)

au revoir.....salut.....
