“Days Go By” – Dirty Vegas¬†

You
You

You are still a whisper on my lips
A feeling at my fingertips
That’s pulling at my skin

You leave me when I’m at my worst
Feeling as if I’ve been cursed
Bitter cold within

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Without you
Without you

You are still a whisper on my lips
A feeling at my fingertips
That’s pulling at my skin

You leave me when I’m at my worst
Feeling as if I’ve been cursed
Bitter cold within

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Without you
Without you

Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Days go by and still I think of you
Days when I couldn’t live my life without you
Without you
Without you
Without you
Without you
Without you

 

 

Mumbai schools ban girl-boy touch

Students keeping a distance from each other !

Mumbai:They may be co-educational schools in metropolitan Mumbai, but are still insisting drawing on a line that divides the boys from the girls.

Two schools in Mumbai issued notices this week asking girls and boys studying there not to touch or hug members of the opposite sex.

What has this country come to !! Why bother having co-ed schools at all ?!?!

I think majority of the crimes (eve-teasing, rapes, etc) that happen are due to one reason only РLack of proper boy-girl interaction and education and awareness about what makes them different from each other.

School authorities say the rule will ‚Äúdiscipline‚ÄĚ students, who are easily exposed to and influenced by violence and vulgarity on TV and other media.

I don’t really understand why we need to have all boys or all girls school. Would it help the child in anyway? I don’t think so. Will scrutinizing each and every move made by students help in anyway? Would there have been a need if these kids were given personal growth and sex seducation classes at the right age at school and at home ?

“You know, they are in school as of now. Un logo ko abhi se hum agar in batoon ki soth de de, toh woh kahan par jake end hoga that’s beyond our imagination, (They are in school now. If we start ignoring these things, you just can’t imagine where it will lead them to),” Richa Bhatia, whose children go to one of these schools, says.

Are schools and even the parents being prudish? Definitely YES !

Well..not much to say on this one. Kinda looking forward to tomorrow and at the same time feeling a little apprehensive too.

” Every silver lining has a dark cloud covering it…”

Cloud with silver lining

 

That pretty much summarises how I’m feeling right now.

Hopefully will put up non-depressing stuff soon ! : )

The Cyclone has passed. But the damage its done is unfathomable. The mainstream media has not justice to this episode at all. I was watching the evening news in one of the Indian channels here and it said everything’s back to normal. BACK TO NORMAL????? If only.

Like Amjad¬†said in his latest post, It took 37 years to build Oman to what it was and its all gone. This is a video (which is on Amjad’s blog too) posted by HemiOman. A heart-wrenching video of what has become of Oman.

My source¬†of regular¬†updates on the real story was from Ali’s and Amjad’s blogs. I take this opportunity to thank them. If it weren’t for them it would have been really hard to make it through the past couple of days. Communicating with my family back in Muscat was not easy. Their regular¬†updates atleast gave me some idea as to what exactly was happening there. The mainstream media was of no help what-so-ever !

Daddy update : He finally got to go check on our apartment. The area surrounding it is still completely under water. They hadto take help from the Omanis there to get to our house. Not much damage to our flat except the little amount of water that seeped in. All the people living in our apartment have moved out. Its still not in a live-able condition.

On a personal note, I think…Oman didn’t deserve to have to go through this. A country that has been so kind to its people and also to all the expatriates. It is going to take a couple of months atleast to recover from what has happened.¬†

I hope and pray Oman receives all the support and strength it requires to get back on its feet.
