Freedom of Speech (& Mr. Thakrey’s Death)

A post made infuriated by the Arrest of People due to making their opinions known & for supporting the opinion & the fact that they were forced to apologize for the same. As now, even I might be forced to do the same, I am apologizing here itself so as no body has to force or coax or threaten me for the same.

Before I begin with the whole GYAN, let’s visit & revisit our Indian Constitutions Article 19 & its provisions related to Speech & Expression. (This might be a little lengthy but is required to understand the whole scenario).

19. Protection of certain rights regarding freedom of speech etc

  1. All citizens shall have the right
    1. to freedom of speech and expression;
  2. … law imposes reasonable restrictions on the exercise of the right conferred …… in the interests of the sovereignty and integrity of India, the security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States, public order, decency or morality or in relation to contempt of court, defamation or incitement to an offence…………

So, if we see, we are free to express ourselves in any way or form or method unless we are not going against Sovereignty & Integrity of India, Security of the State, Friendly relations with Foreign States, Public Order, Decency or Morality or in relation to Contempt of Court, defamation or incitement to an offence.

I hope we all agree to the fact that what’s mentioned above is really required to be a decent society, decent enough to be called “Human Society”.

Now, let’s visit the incidents that have unfolded in the past few days over the death of the Beloved Mr. Bal Thakery. He expired (May he rest in Peace & understand that I respect him for who he was). His supporters & non-supporters & others have their personal opinion over his life & what should be the way forward for anyone any how related with him. So, if we think carefully the only point over which an action might be taken over someone over this matter i.e. expressing their opinion would be “only if it’s against Public Order”, right?

Now imagine this, if the so called supporters of Mr. Thakrey decide to Band karo a whole city, that too the economic capital of India (Read: Loss of may be Billions of Rupees to Indian Economy). So, one group says Band karo because he feels so. Some Others don’t want to because they need to live their daily live unaffected by someone’s death as they don’t want to be affected every time someone dies. It’s their choice if they don’t want to shut their life even if their own Father or Mother dies so why should they shut their lives over a politician / leader they don’t want to follow. Now this difference of opinion could & would cause conflicts & friction. This friction would definitely lead to some kind of offence but It’s completely ok, because it does not go against:

  1. Security of the State.
  2. Public Order.
  3. Decency or Morality or in relation to Contempt of Court, defamation or incitement to an offence.

As example of what is allowed by our system despite of our so elaborate constitution & legal system, we can have a look at the behavior of our Politicians over various Rally & Speeches & even in our Parliamentary discussions.

Now, let’s look at a second series of events which unfolded at the same time when Mumbai was shut. A few people, citizens of India obviously not less a part to the future of India than anyone decide to express their opinion about the same, they are arrested for doing the same, because as they share a status & express opinion, their friends like & comment on the status/post/opinion, it’s against the restrictions imposed by our constitution under Section 19.

The amazing fact is they did not say that Mr. Thakrey was corrupt or wrong or anything which should hurt the sentiments of any one related to him. Neither did they say any slangs or spoke wrongly about him any manner rather they just expressed that shutting the whole city forcefully. And, actually, when the whole Supporter group of Mr. Thakrey was on the roads shutting down the city (which was not at all illegal under any law, leave alone the constitution), the status was posted from within four walls of might be their homes (which was illegal).

And when I say this please trust me on the point that there are a lot of people on both sides i.e. the side which trusts, respects & honors Mr. Thakrey as well as on the side according to whom he was all but a good person, but they are just opinions & everybody has a right to the same, even if they are not proven truths or judge of what he was. Mr. Thakrey was & will be remembered for the things he did, the impact he had & even those who differed from his opinion or ideologies respect him.

But these negative opinions about him were not voiced, not because of the threat of his supporters but because of the fact that we as Indians know how to respect someone, especially after he expires.

But, nope, nobody is content upon us being so tolerant. A few opinions on how should a dead man be honored & cremated have to lead to arrest because that’s what we are as Indians & that’s our image to the world. And, now the arrest of these youth is not challenging the youth of India to voice such opinions more vocally. That’s not a challenge as to what can the youth of India do in front of a few Political idiots & their show of Nonsense Power. And, that’s not “incitement to an offence” because after having seen the whole arrest on News Channels I feel pretty much incited to do something Rash of a larger magnitude & see who decides to shut my opinions off & take away my rights of speech away & prove that in India not even the constitution has any respect or validity.

Rules every girl should remember.

1. If you think you might be fat, you are. Don’t ask us. Just get your fat ass in a gym.
2. Learn to work the toilet seat: if it’s up put it down.
3. Don’t cut your hair. Ever.
4. Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if he can find the perfect present, again!
5. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you don’t want to hear.
6. Sometimes, he’s not thinking about you. Live with it.
7. Don’t ask him what he’s thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, the shotgun formation and monster trucks.
8. Get rid of your cat. And no, it’s not different, it’s just like every other cat.
9. Dogs are better than ANY cats. Period.
10. Sunday = Sports. It’s like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
11. Shopping is not a sport.
12. Anything you wear is fine. Really.
13. You have enough clothes.
14. You have too many shoes.
15. Crying is blackmail. Use it if you must, but don’t expect us to like it.
16. Your brother is an idiot, your ex-boyfriend is an idiot and your Dad probably is too.
17. Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don’t work.
18. No, he doesn’t know what day it is. He never will. Mark anniversaries on a calendar.
19. Yes, pissing standing up is more difficult than peeing from point blank range. We’re bound to miss sometimes.
20. Most guys own two to three pairs of shoes-what makes you think we’d be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?
21. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers.

31. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad and angry, we meant the other one.
32. Let us ogle. If we don’t look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?
33. You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done – not both.
34. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.
35. Christopher Columbus didn’t need directions, and neither do we.
36. Women wearing Wonderbras and low-cut blouses lose their right to complain about having their boobs stared at.
37. Consider Golf a mini-vacation from you. We need it, just like you do.
38. Telling us that the models in the men’s magazines are airbrushed makes you look jealous and petty and it’s certainly not going to deter us from reading the magazines.
39. The relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out.
40. Anyone can buy condoms.
41. Don’t rub the lamp if you don’t want the genie to come out.

Women will be Women

Next to my previous article “Men will be Men”, it was natural to come up with something on the same lines for women.

Without preliminaries, here it is as shared by one of my friends,

If you kiss her, you are not a gentleman
If you don’t, you are not a man

If you praise her, she thinks you are lying
If you don’t, you are good for nothing

If you agree to all her likes, you are a wimp
If you don’t, you are not understanding

If you visit her often, she thinks it is boring
If you don’t, she accuses you of double-crossing

If you are well dressed, she says you are a playboy
If you don’t, you are a dull boy

If you are jealous, she says it’s bad
If you don’t, she thinks you do not love her

If you attempt a romance, she says you didn’t respect her
If you don’t, she thinks you do not like her

If you are a minute late, she complains it’s hard to wait
If she is late, she says that’s a girl’s way

If you visit another man, you’re not putting in “quality time”
If she is visited by another woman, “oh it’s natural, we are girls”

If you kiss her once in a while, she professes you are cold
If you kiss her often, she yells that you are taking advantage

If you fail to help her in crossing the street, you lack ethics
If you do, she thinks it’s just one of men’s tactics for seduction

If you stare at another woman, she accuses you of flirting
If she is stared by other men, she says that they are just admiring

If you talk, she wants you to listen
If you listen, she wants you to talk

In short:
So simple, yet so complex
So weak, yet so powerful
So damning, yet so wonderful
So confusing, yet so desirable… …

Men will be Men

I received this through an email, was forced to share a laugh with all…

How many men does it take to open a beer? ???
None. It should be opened when she brings it clip_image001

Why is a Laundromat a really bad place to pick up a woman? :bang head:
Because a woman who can’t even afford a washing machine will probably never be able to support you. clip_image001[1]

Why do women have smaller feet than men? :o :o :o
It’s one of those “evolutionary things” that allows
Them to stand closer to the kitchen sink. clip_image001[2]clip_image001[3]clip_image001[4]

How do you know when a woman is about to say something smart? clip_image002clip_image002[1]
When she starts a sentence with “A man once told me…” clip_image003clip_image003[1]clip_image003[2]

How do you fix a woman’s watch? :bang head:
You don’t. There is a clock on the oven. clip_image004

Why do men fart more than women? :x :x :^)
Because women can’t shut up long enough to
Build up the required pressure. >clip_image001[5] >clip_image001[6] >clip_image001[7]

If your dog is barking at the back door and your wife is yelling at the front door, who do you let in first? ??? ??? ???
The dog, of course. He’ll shut up once you let him in. clip_image001[8]clip_image001[9]clip_image001[10]O:)

What’s worse than a Male Chauvinist Pig?
A woman who won’t do what she’s told

I married a Miss Right.
I just didn’t know her first name was Always.

Scientists have discovered a food that diminishes
A woman’s sex drive by 90%.
It’s called a Wedding Cake.

Why do men die before their wives? :bang head: :bang head:
They want to. >clip_image001[11]

Women will never be equal to men ??? until they can
Walk down the street with a bald head and a beer
Gut, and still think they are sexy. clip_image005) clip_image005[1]) clip_image005[2])

In the beginning, God created the earth and rested.
Then God created Man and rested.
Then God created Woman.
Since then, neither God nor Man has rested. :bang head: :bang head: :bang head: :bang head: :bang head: :bang head:

Females–As programmed

I came across this small program code which describes almost perfectly the programming code of Female as it is or as it should be in some cases. It brings an interesting insight & is really fun to go through. The CODE WRITER must be a humorous coder to have come up with this.

Struct female_professionals
{double styles;
Short skirts;
Long time_to_understand_ problems;float mind;
Void knowledge;
Char non_co-operative; }

Struct married_females
{double weight;
Short tempered;
Long gossip;
Float hopes;
Void word;
Char unstable;}

Struct engaged_females
{double time_on_phone;
Short attention_on_ work;
Long boast;
Float on_cloud_nine;
Void understanding;
Char edgy;}

Struct newly_married_ females
{double dinner_invitation;
Short time_at_work;
Long lunch_break;
Void bank_balance;
Char hen_pecked;}

Struct husband_wife_ professionals
{double income;
Short tempered;
Long time_no_see_ each_other;
Void love_life;
Char money_making; }

Struct beautiful_city_ girl
{double boyfriends;
Short affairs;
Long stories;
Void grey matter;
Char flirt;}

Struct old_lady
{double chin;
Short memory;
Long sighs ;
Void attention_from_ men;
Char chatterbox;}

I have no intentions of hurting any feelings but this just for Fun reading, however I apologise if anyone is hurt by this. It would be absolutely brilliant if someone could come up with something similar for the MALE. (The images shared are found doing a simple Google search & are linked to their original sources).

I love you; I love mathematics too

SweeeetMy Dear Sweetheart,
Yesterday, I was passing by your rectangular house in trigonometric lane.

There I saw you with our cute circular face,conical nose and spherical eyes, standing in your triangular garden. Before seeing you my heart was a null set, but when a vector of magnitude (likeness) from your eyes at a deviation of theta radians made a tangent to my heart, it differentiated.

My love for you is a quadratic equation with real roots, which only you can solve by making good binary relation with me.

The cosine of my love for you extends to infinity.

I promise that I should not resolve you into partial functions but if I do so, you can integrate me by applying the limits from zero to infinity. You are as essential to me as an element to a set.

The geometry of my life revolves around your acute personality. My love, if you do not meet me at parabola restaurant on date 10 at sunset, when the sun is making an angle of 160 degrees, my heart would be like a solved polynomial of degree 10. With love from your higher order derivatives of maxima and minima, of an unknown function.

Truly Yours,
Only one Mathematician
