Self Identification

Recently i saw a add of IBM which mentioned,
Iam a Testiing Engineer
Iam a SAP Consultant
Iam a Oracle Proffessional
Iam an Industrial Domain Specialist.
IAM A DW programmer.

If some body identifies himself with these quotations , it clearly shows the
confusion that exists about who in reality are .

All these becoming infact destroys the reality of who we are .
Instead the whole life is made a struggle to become one thing or the other
and finally remaining nothing inside and outside.

Infact the whole religion of india exists to show man who really is .
He is asked to probe the truth about himself with the question "Who Am I ??" (Read about Ramana - http://bhagwanramana.blogspot.com/2005/10/bhagwan-ramana-maharhsi.html)
In modern life you have to identify - with your occupation or your company.
If you work for infosys you have to call yourself Infoscion.
If you stop working for infosys and join wipro suddenly you become a wiproite.
Also this identification with knowledge.
If you know C++ or OOPS you are a OOPS specialist.
Ooops ! why this craze for identifying with so many things.

I simply remain as Iam what Iam simply Iam.

Kashmir - A Perfect Example of Deadlock

Deadlock Issue :
The Recent controversy about Google Maps displaying the Kashmir Map is a perfect example of deadlock that is there between Government of India visavis Government of Pakistan .
Till we matured we always drew the map that included POK as Indian Kashmir.The Pakistanis refer Indian Kashmir as IOK.
The indians refer the pakistani kashmir as POK.
What is not OK -
- is the division of Kashmir .
- is the killing of innocent children by terrorists and killing of these "terrorists" as militants.
- is that the most sacred and the most beautiful space on mother
earth is now the center of violence and killing.

This confusion exists in the terminology also - Indians call
terrorists as terrorists . Pakistanis call them as Jihadis.
Actually they are neither terrorists nor jihadis.
They are Human Beings like you and me .
Human Beings who want to be heard because they are denied some
rights and some freedom.

Analysis :
That both Indian Government and Pakistani Government are stupid and they are fighting over a deadlock which can only be resolved if both sides remain silent.

Solution :
Part1 :
The common resource of Kashmir is claimed by Two Different threads
"Hindu Thread " && the Muslim Thread as a resource.
What is Important to realize is Kashmir is not a resource but a Thread
with its own culture and own language.
Both "Indians??" and "Pakistanis??" need to realize and get rid of the
confusion.

Once we realize this we will not send military to kashmir and pakistanis
will stop sending terrorists or freedom fighters to kashmir.
We need to switch into listening mode - trying to understand and
feel what they want to say.
Then we shall be free of all violence and perhaps we can have
real integration.

Insurgents in Iraq

Every time you read the news or listen to the news reader on the War in Iraq,the News Reader highlighting the killing of some american soldiers, says "Insurgents in Iraq Kill 10 Soldiers".
The dictionary meaning of the insurgent is :
"a person who rises in revolt against civil authority or an established government; especially : one not recognized as a belligerent
2 : one that acts contrary to the established leadership (as of a political party, union, or corporation) or its decisions and policies"

If we go by the dictionary meaning the Americans turn out to be the real insurgents. This clearly shows the bias of the media in projecting the news that fits them and how manipulative the media is these days. Anyway reading NewsPaper these days is a painful activity. Every day you have to compulsarilly read about bomb explosions and the "terrorist " attacks. The number of people killed in these explosions turns out to be mere statistical data without feeling for the dead people.
