Felix gets lauded but Malala got shot?

In a world where a MAN like Felix Baumgartner gets lauded for creating a record by breaking the sound barrier; a little GIRL like Malala gets shot by the Taliban (who mainly comprise of by the way: MEN) - just because she chose to speak her mind and campaign for what she believed in firmly. And it all happened within the span of a few days!

Both Felix and Malala took a step forward to reiterate their commitment towards their goals - and both believed in pushing the limit.

Except for what happened next. HE received laurels and SHE nearly got killed.

Taliban and related groups of MEN who think they are in any way superior to women :

Get It Straight.

No matter what you do - try as you might, you can never daunt the spirit of a woman. 

Malala is just an example and in fact she is just a trial version of what lies ahead.You guys tried to kill her but guess what - she is a survivor and she will come back!

You can use all the weapons in the world if you care but nothing will stop IT from happening. The world is going to see a major uprising soon where hordes of women will come out to speak their minds and mark the advent of a revolution. It is already trickling in as a small stream and the time is not far when it will take the form of an ocean.

So Taliban, stop targeting one woman here and there; and instead, focus on shaking the dust off your pea-sized brains. Watch out for what is coming soon, be prepared to be shaken from the very roots.

I've been reading!

I've been utilizing the post delivery period to catch up on some reading. I had the awesome foresight to order some books for myself and it's been sheer joy to immerse myself in one of my favourite hobbies.

Ever since I got home from the hospital on August 26th 2012; I've read:

1. The two books in the Shiva Trilogy
2. Another Man's wife by Manjul Bajaj

Both the above are EXCELLENT reads..

3. 'Devil in Pinstripes' and 'If God was a Banker' by Ravi Subramanian
4. Fifty Shades Darker (overdose of the kinky stuff, not very interesting)

Didn't find these too great

and now..

I've finally started reading Chanakya's Chant and I am mesmerized to say the least :)
