Death by PowerPoint

Fighting death by PowerPoint... How to make a presentation and not to bore your audience to death.
Since, tapes are open for scrutiny by the Courts and the Commissions, No channel or magazines will ever dare to indulge in the fake sting of this nature which has shaken the nation. The meaningful silence of the orator and the self proclaimed lion of Gujarat and the resignation of Arvind Pandya, Advocate General of Gujarat, establish the authenticity to the sting.
Sting has shown us a Mirror. It supports what K.S. Subramanian has noted (he is The Author of Political Violence and a member of concerned citizens' tribunal, who visited Gujarat after the pogrom in 2002) as a CONJOINT EFFORT of a section of Majority community and the state government both wedded to the same ideology. It also explores how self centered politicians can use misguided masses and then throw them in Jail. How can they Corrupt the Lawyers, can communalize the Administration, can bribe the people in our judiciary and most important of them all how can they abuse the power and knowledge to discriminate, to benefit themselves and can make Justice Impossible. Politicians, Administration, Judiciary, the pillars of our democracy are prone to get abused or corrupted. It puts a question mark on our democracy because the whole system can be misused by the few people.
It also clarifys that the Hindutva presented by the RSS, BJP, VHP, Bajrang Dal is different or in fact contradictory to the Hinduism. The true Hindu and they are in Majority, will never support Schism in Gujarat and will term it a slap on Hinduism. In fact No sane human being will ever support the butchering of pregnant women, burning of Children and slaughtering of innocent human being. All these were the reaction of the misguided masses but what is more brutal, ruthless and inhuman was the attitude of white color criminals like, the Police who allegedly murdered the Indian citizens just because of their religious affiliation, the Lawyers, who managed the court cases in favor of the Criminals, the Politicians who instigated religious sentiment, polarized the society to get elected and remain in the power. The Hindutva presented by the Sangh Parivaar is in contrast to Hinduism and broadly rejected by the majority and that is why these communal forces could not come to power on their own ever.
The role of Congress is rightly interpreted by the journalists as guarded and this class sees everything in the terms of Elections. Coming to power is their ultimate goal. Humanity, Nationalism, Patriotism, secularism are the words for them to use in the speeches and forget. Why congress does not file the case when Mr.Abhishek Singhvi himself admitted in the talk show that these tapes can be used as legal evidence? The fact of the matter is Congress is as guilty as the BJP as could be understand by their attitudes towards Srikrishna Commission in Maharashtra. Tarun Tejpal, editor of Tehehlka, has rightly concluded that the shining name like Sonia and Manmohan present abject report cards Modi walks with the Bravery of the bigot; and the idea of India dulls by the day.
It's a challenge for the Election Commission to conduct the Free and Fair Election in Gujarat because the whole of administration has been under pressure to work for the MODI or the BJP as could be seen by the action taken against the news Channels by the District Collector of Ahmedabad, who is also the Election Officer of the District. False implication of a reporter also confirms this. These feelings are reflected by the NRIs statement also where 17 Indian American organizations and 21 eminent members of the NRI community in the United States urged the UPA Government to impose Presidents' rule in Gujarat, arrest ''all criminals'' who confessed their crime and transfer all legal cases pertaining to the 2002 Gujarat riots to a court outside Gujarat.
What is now needed is the Action. As proposed by the leading Lawyer like Yusuf Muchala , the Supreme Court must take SUO MOTO action as they took in the case of Gujjars right in Rajasthan recently Or as recommended by Majeed Memon that the Chief Monster,( describe by Anil Dharkar) Narendra Modi be debar from contesting Election . Check the authenticity of the tape, punish the guilty and the culprits as early as possible because the Justice delayed may not be justice denied but will definitely support the barbarians come to power and will abused it in their favor.
Secondly Mike Ghouse, a Speaker, Thinker, Writer, Moderator and president of the Foundation for Pluralism has rightly observed that Parallels can be drawn between Hitler and Modi. Both of them had an Iron clad grip on some of their people, both of them brought economic prosperity while one was annihilating Jews, the other was tacitly letting Muslims be butchered. The ones who are reaping the benefits of the unprecedented economic prosperity considered both the men as their God given leaders; their word was the final word to them. However deep down, any soul should feel the intense pain and suffering of the victims, after all without such feeling, one cannot be called a human. Adharma is a bigger killer of a civil society than any weapons of mass destruction.
Finally, Guajarati community must vote out these criminals because they are no friend of them as alleged by the father of the Ex-Home Minister of Gujarat, Harin Pandya and complained by the Babu Bajrangi that VHP did not support the rioters who were in Jail. So our society must come back to the Gandhisim and reject the Modism.
"Which pencil to use? 2B or not 2B?"Let us come to the topic. To insure or not to insure? Let me begin with an example given by one of the members of that community.
(Qur'an 6:17) Should Allah touch you with affliction, there is none to remove it but He; and should He touch you with good, He has the power to do everything.So now the question comes if u trust in Allah then you should be least bothered about your belongings. Let me clear you the concept of it by quoting a Hadeeth of our Prothet.
“One day Prophet Muhammad (SAW), noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it and he asked the Bedouin,“Why don't you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet then said, “Tie your camel first, and then put your trust in Allah.” (Tirmithi)
Premiums Received – Claims paid out = Surplus (profit)So the insurance game is all about getting more in premiums and paying out LESS, otherwise the company will be in a loss. This is why insurance companies design their contracts in such a way that getting the claim becomes really difficult. Here are some examples:
Hehe... What do u people think if I die?? Well most of u will be missing me... And somebody will thanks God, Bala tal Gayee... But there is someone who misses me more than anyone...

"Scientists discovered a deserted island. The scientists who stepped on the island were very impressed by what they saw there. They were fascinated by the jungles and wild animals. They climbed steep hills and examined their surroundings. They could not find the smallest sign of civilization in the island. Just when they were returning to their ship, they found a brand new watch on the beach. It was working perfectly. This was quite intriguing for the scientists. How did this watch come here? They knew for certain that no one had ever set foot on the island before them. So, there was only one other possibility. This watch, with its well crafted leather belt, glass, battery and other parts, came to this island by chance and settled on the beach. There is no other alternative."To explain the impossibility of this, Singer ended his story in these words:
"Every watch certainly has a watchmaker."
(Qur'an 24:27) O Believers, do not enter other houses than your own until you have the approval of the inmates and have wished them peace; this is the best way for you: it is expected that you will observe it.The Commandments being given above are meant to prevent the very birth of evil, to reform society and root out the causes responsible for the creation and spread of evil. To understand the commandments let us see what was the condition of Arabs during that time.
Hadrat Huzail bin Shurahbil has reported that a man came to see the Holy Prophet and sought permission for entry while standing just in front of the door. The Holy Prophet said to him: "Stand aside: the object of the Commandment for seeking permission is to prevent casting of looks inside the house." (Abu Da'ud - Book 41, Number 5155).(2) The jurists have included 'hearing' also under 'glancing'. For instance, if a blind man enters a house without permission, he will not be able to see anybody, but he will certainly be able to hear whatever is going on in the house. This also amounts to violation of the other person's right of privacy.
The practice of the Holy Prophet was that whenever he went to see somebody, he would stand aside, to the right or the left of the door, and seek permission as it was not then usual to hang curtains on the doors. (Abu Da'ud - Book 41, Number 5167).
According to Hadrat 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas, the Holy Prophet said: "Whoever glances through the letter of his brother without his permission, glances into fire." (Abu Da'ud, Book 8, Number 1480).
According to Muslim and Bukhari;, the Holy Prophet is reported to have said: "If someone peeps into your house, it will be no sin if you injure his eye with a piece of stone."
In another Tradition, he has said: "The inmates of a house, who injure the eye of the man peeping into their house; are not liable to any punishment." (Abu Da'ud, Book 41, Number 5153)
A man asked the Holy Prophet: "Sir, should I seek permission to enter my mother's house also?" The Holy Prophet replied that he should. The man stated that "there was nobody beside him to look after her", and asked "whether it was necessary to get permission every time he wanted to go in". The Holy Prophet replied: "Yes; would you like that you should see your mother in a naked state" (Ibn Jarir quoting from 'Ata bin Yasar).(4) The only exception to the general rule is that no permission is needed in case of an emergency or a calamity like theft, fire, etc. One can go for help without permission in such cases.
It is related that whenever Hadrat `Umar went to see the Holy Prophet, he would say: "Assalam-o- alaikum ya Rasul-Allah, I am `Umar: May I enter!" (Abu Da'ud).The Holy Prophet enjoined that permission should be asked thrice at the most. If there is no reply even at the third call, one should come back. (Bukhari, Muslim, Abu D'ud)
Once he went to the house of Hadrat Sa'd bin `Ubadah and sought permission twice after greeting with: Assalam-o-`alaikum wa Rahmatullah (peace be upon you and mercy of Allah), but there was no response. After calling for the third time when he received no response, he turned back. Sa'd came out running from the house, and said, "O Messenger of Allah, I was hearing you all right, but I desired to have Allah's peace and mercy invoked upon me through your sacred tongue as often as possible; therefore, I was replying to you in a low voice. " (Abu D'ud - Book 41, Number 5166a, Ahmad).The three calls as enjoined above should not be made in quick succession, but at suitable intervals so as to allow sufficient time to the inmates to make the response in case they are not free to do so.
(24:28) Then, if you do not find anyone therein, do not enter until you have been given permission, and if you are told to go back, you should go back. This is a purer way for you; and Allah has full knowledge of what you do.That is nobody should mind if entry is refused, for everybody has a right to refuse to meet another person, or offer a plea if otherwise busy. The Command "Go back", according to the jurists, means going back in the literal sense and moving away from the door. Nobody has any right to compel the other person for a meeting or to embarrass him by standing obstinately at his door.
(24:29) There is, however, no harm if you enter houses which are not dwelling places, but contain something useful for you ; Allah knows what you disclose and what you conceal.
In the Name of Allah The most Merciful The Compassionate.
Assalamu-Alaikum to you. Here I am going to share my childhood days. It is not that easy to recollect everything from my childhood days and if at all I recollect it also it is difficult to put everything over here. I would first of all like to make you know that I consider my childhood days to be right from the first day of my memory till my 6th standard in School. That will be my 12 years of age, I was 12 when I was in 6th standard.
In fact the dictionary meaning also gives the same type of meaning.

I am starting this article after having some discussion in Hijab Community in Orkut. Well I never thought of anything like chatting with someone via internet would fall under Vain Talks. In fact I thought that whatever I chat is something useful for us, or at least for me.
Regarding Vain Talks brother Ahmed created a thread in that community called "Vain Talks" in which he has put some Hadeeths of our beloved Prophet. But those Hadeeths did not make me think over what I used to chat. So I continued with my chatting in the net.
One day I again had some discussion in that community. There it was regarding the beard thing. But the topic deviated from its originality and we went some where else and had started to have chit chat. But later one of our moderators stoped us from having chit chat and told us to take the other thread which was specifically meant for chit chat. But there again Ahmed bhai told me that if we discuss in that thread it would be a vain talk. I got angry. What does it mean if we have some discussion how does it mean Vain Talk?
Then something struck my mind. A word came into my mind and that is "Laghv" and I think this was the word which Ahmed bhai wanted to convey. Then I searched the Quran and got satisfactory answers. I think it would be better to share it with all of you so that you also refrain from Vain Talks.
At first I saw this verse 23:1-3. Let me put the translation from English Tafheem.
(23:1) Most certainly those Believers have attained true success
(23:2) who perform their Salat with humility:
(23:3) who refrain from vain things:
Literally, laghv is anything nonsensical, meaningless and vain, which is in no way conducive to achieving one's goal and purpose in life. The Believers pay no heed to such useless things and they show no inclination or interest for them. If by chance they see such things being indulged in, they keep away and avoid them scrupulously, or treat them with utmost indifference. This attitude has been described in Al-Furqan 25:72,
"(And the servants of the Merciful are those:) who do not bear witness to falsehood and who; if they have ever to pass by what is vain, pass by like dignified people"
This is indeed one of the outstanding characteristics of the Believer. He is a person who feels the burden of responsibility at all times; he regards the world as a place of test, and the life as the limited time allowed for the test. This feeling makes him behave seriously and responsibly throughout life just like the student who is taking an examination paper with his whole mind and body and soul absorbed in it. Just as the student knows and feels that each moment of the limited time at his disposal is important and decisive for his future life, and is not inclined to waste it, so the Believer also spends each moment of his life on works which are useful and productive in their ultimate results. So much so that even in matters of recreation and sport, he makes a choice of only those things which prepare him for higher ends in life and do not result in mere wastage of time. For hitn time is not something to be killed but used profitably and productively.
Besides this, the Believer is a person who possesses a right thinking mind, pure nature and fine taste: he has no inclination to indecent things: he can talk useful and healthy things but cannot indulge in idle talk: he has a fine taste of humour, but is not given to jesting, joking, ridicule, etc. nor can he endure dirty jokes and fun. For him a society in which the ears are never immune from abusive language, back-biting, slander; lying, dirty songs and indecent talk is a source of torture and agony. A characteristic of the promised Paradise is: " . . therein you will not hear anything vain or useless."
(And the servants of the Merciful are those:) who do not bear witness to falsehood and who; if they have ever to pass by what is vain, pass by like dignified people.
The Arabic word laghv implies all that is vain, useless and meaningless and it also covers "falsehood". The true servants pass by in a dignified manner if ever they come across "what is vain", as if it were a heap of
tilth. They do not tarry there to enjoy the "filth" of moral impurity, obscenity or foul language, nor do they intentionally go anywhere to hear or see or take part in any sort of "filth".
"Our Lord, take us not to task if we forget and lapse into error inadvertently. Lord! lay not on us the kind of burdens that You had lain on the people before us. Lord, lay not on us the kind of burden that we have not the strength to bear. Be kind to us, forgive us and show mercy to us. You are our Protector : help us against the disbelievers." [Quran 2:286]
