i really dont think i will be able to sustain it.
i am bak on track on the war. for a few days, i kind of went off it. its strange really. it just got too much. too much of bullshit.
on cnn, msnbc, washington post, all those american papers. even bbc. the only sane voice i think is the guradian and sometimes (!) the ny times. ofcourse, there are places like commondreams and stuff, but first of all, i really dont know the kind of support those sites have, and secondly, sometimes, those articles are just too extremist. ok, dont have the war, but dont say bush is like osama. even if he is!
i think if the iraqis had press conferences like the one ari fleischer has, in a suit, with the iraqi seal and all that, it would make a lot of difference. its about marketing to your audience. noone is going to hear some guy holding an AK and telling about cluster bombings in your territory. come on, just grow up. relax, put your gun down, and then attack.
hey, i am in india, and the war's been fought so far away. sometimes, riting here seems very phony. like philosophy; with no basis.
these days, i have stopped being able to see the 'world view'. the Big picture. i just cant see it. its outside my frame.
a friend of mine is probably going to go to iraq with the indian govt's contingent of red cross people. i think she flies in a few days if all goes well. i wish i cud go and see the whole thing. it wud be fun, rite?

my saying that raed is dea is kinda bad. i was reading his archives, and hes a pretty decent chap!
had a dream about raed and someone telling me that he was dead since the last 2 days. kinda scary what. i hope he dosent die.
but then dreams are just that for me. i usually dont dream. and stuff that happened in my dream dosent translate into reality. so no problem, i guess.
i went to lafpat nagar today with kshttry, gauri and neeti. lajpat nagar is like jaipur in some many ways!
its really cool. i liked it for that. it has the jaipur feel, of lots of colour, and tons of food. even the shops have a jaipur feel to them. they are small, well light, with the owner (lala) sitting wearing a kurta pajama. very jaipur!
i think i will buy a digi cam in a few months and probably upload images here. will explain a lot of things better.
had some gol guppe. people call them different things in different states in india. some call it pani puri, or pani patashi, or patashe. i like pani puri though. the name, i mean. ofcourse, its the same thing.
i have been reading the russian GRU's intel on iraq, and it is pretty good. its unbiased, for one. its also pretty accurate. i guess will get lot of info from there, though how it is going to reach a whole load of people, i dont know.
somehow, whenever i am on the computer, or on the internet, i am thinking just of the war. and iraq. its crazy right?!
hey, if the war goes on for 90 days withover a 1000 casualties from the US- brit team, then we might see withdrawl becasue of public opinion. hows that?
