"Boulevard Of Broken Dreams"

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a...

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone...

Yeah..the ban's gone for now! But I haven't been blogging. Cause i just don't know what to blog about!! There's nothing much happening these days, but by the time I get home I'm too tired to blog or do bloghopping... this is what i do all day-
go to work,
face traffic jams,
waste time if no work/sir not around,
wait for the evening and hope you don't get work late in the evening (which happens too often :((( ),
come back home,
face traffic jams,
chat with family and friends,
check mail,
go to sleep,
get up in the morning and then... do it all over again!!

oh yeah... in between.. wait for saturdays and sundays!!
lol...working life is very monotonous i must say!! I need to start doing something soon...some activity, some hobby... so tht i don't get bored!!!

Initially I used to get so frustrated with the traffic jams, now they have become a part of life.sigh.

Ive been sitting and thinking for the past 5 minutes and am still blank! So me's off...

And back... after visiting Ishita's blog, I decided I had to write about something... something which makes me go angry everytime I read about it. It's the Priyadarshini Mattoo rape and murder case. More than 10 years, and still no justice...
"I know this is the man who has commited the crime and yet I cannot punish him"
This is what the judge deciding the case had said. Lack of evidence, power play, the accused's father being a civil servant are probably factors which helped him get away. As they say, the prosecution has to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt... and the accused always gets a benefit of doubt. Because no innocent man must be punished even if a hundred guilty peopple go scotfree. Do you think this really holds in today's world? Should that one person be sacrificed to bring to justivce those hundred guilty people? It's a very tough choice to make... what if that innocent person is you, or someone close to you...Would you still be willing to sacrifice...

I don't know why, but everytime I read about her, hear about her I feel a strange sense of attachment... She was a law student, being followed, stalked for months by this man. She had even been given police protection...isn't this evidence?? t would probabyl be very tought o get direct evidence in such cases, but then so much circumstantial evidence should count for sure...and the worst part is that the man is practicing as a lawyer.. living a normal life. I wonder what his wife and kids would think about him... how would you live with someone like that? What if you knew your husband or father was a rapist and killer... would you be able to live with that?? Let alone his wife and kids... how can anyone live with the fact that they have actually committed such a heinous crime... Maybe noone else ever gets to know... maybe you don't get punished.. But you know. you know tht you have done something for which even god will not forgive you. Do they have any conscience, any remorse at all? any guilt?? Can they still sleep at nights? No matter what happens, I have a firm belief that God balances everything... if you don't get punished by the law, you will get punished in some other way...maybe your kids will hate you.. maybe you will never have peace in life... but you will get punished. I wonder though if the punishement's enough... if it's any solace to Priyadarshini's family.. her father who's been struggling to get her justice...How many Pridarshini's die such deaths without ever getting justice by the courts, by law.Can anyone tell me why does this have to happen? Why can't people get justice? Why don't things happen the way they're supposed to ? I'm not talking about a perfect world.A perfect world would be one in which such crimes would not be committed at all. I just want a world which respects what is right, and makes sure it happens..

Do sign the online petition for a retrial here. It might not be anything big, but atleast it makes us feel we're all contributing to her gettign justice in some small way.

What's happening!! I found it so unbelievable when I first heard about it. I thought it was probably a joke. Turns out the joke is on us, all of us, and our rights.. our freedoms! are we living in a democracy or a dictatorship??

12 sites on Govt gag list

2 sites on Govt gag listThe government has instructed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block 12 websites. The order has come in the wake of the Mumbai bomb blasts, and these websites are perceived to be anti-India. Unfortunately, one of these is blogger or, a Google affiliated site which hosts millions of blogs worldwide.

Sources in the government said that a circular was issued by the Home Affairs Ministry three days back asking the Ministry of Information and Technology to block the 12 websites which posted content maligning India. Hundreds of netizens tried unsuccessfully to log on to on Monday. These bloggers exchanged flash messages to discover that none of them were being able to log on to the website.

Officials defended the decision saying, "We would like those people to come forward who access these (the 12) radical websites and please explain to us what are they missing from their lives in the absence of these sites."

And make sure you check this out. Ways to bypass the ban.

I still don't believe it. Does freedom of speech and expression really even exist in this country? I'm a lawyer, and right now I feel like the law is just a puppet in the hands of this government. We could probably say this is a violation of our fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression, this is total censorship.. Yes, the government can restrict this freedom. (Read this article of the constitution for details.) The government can basically put 'reasonable restrictions' on this right. Reasonable Restrictions! what on earth made them do this..

Right to Freedom
19. Protection of certain rights regarding freedom of speech, etc.-

(1) All citizens shall have the right-

(a) to freedom of speech and expression;

[(2) Nothing in sub-clause (a) of clause (1) shall affect the operation of any existing law, or prevent the State from making any law, in so far as such law imposes reasonable restrictions on the exercise of the right conferred by the said sub-clause 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.]

Today they have blogged blogspot, tomorrow they'll block news, email.. what not!! are we going to let this happen?

And I don't understand.. y just blogger? there r so many other blog sites..and so many other ways to bypass these bans.. it's just totally absurd!! Blogs r public sites..anyone can access them.. how could the terrorists use them!!

Been watching a few of the football matches lately. Football is fun to watch, cause it's so unpredicatble!! Like last night, just when I was sure there was gonna b another one of those penalty shootouts, Italy scored in the nth minute!! I was totally zapped!! I like the game cause it's so fast paced..I have absolutely no idea who's gonna win the world cup now! I had been thinking before the semis it would be Germany!


I have come under the tag attack once again :(( lol.Next post hopefully :P
