Blog Action Day – non 55ers..

October 15, 2009

My contribution to Blog Action Day 09 –



He goes for his late night swim and finds a dead rat in his private pool and orders for a full drain and cleaning.

“Water crisis In African countries – people dying of thirst” is the news flashing on his LED TV.


“Did you hear the world is coming to an end with this climatic changes”..

“Yes but we need not care I am sure by that time we would have found some other planet to encroach, we have great scientists”..


Conversation on 5 year olds –

“You know my mommy was telling me that we should not bother animals and birds as they too have life and feel pain just like us.”

“you should not bother what has life…. “Then why do you eat them..? Do you eat people also..?” asked the other worried kid.


“Wow, it was such a tiring day…!” said the first friend.

“Yes, we covered about 30 shops in 5 hours, that is our latest record.” Confirmed the second one happily, looking at the loads of shopping bags in heir hands..

“But it is bad that all the leather shoes and bags are getting costlier by the day.. remember we got them for half the price last season.” Complained the first one.

“Yes the designers have no compassion for their regular customers, they just want to make money.” The second one replied walking right under the huge banner that said Save the Endangered animals avoid leather products.

    This was a very different B.A.D. post! Funny, but thoughtful, and got me to think!

    🙂 i love the 55er concept (though the last one does not qualify)… you can write and convey so much in very few words.. and the impact is there.

    This is a totally different attempt on BAD 09. One of the best!

    Very true and socially relevant themes. Nicely put…

    🙂 hmm… we all are connected to it in some way or the other…

  11. October 17, 2009 8:24 am

    The irony of it all Oorja!! And atleast leather has pleather as an easy option!!
    Habit is the reason for this indifference. We just get so used to one way of living, that we don’t like to change… Very relevant post Oorja and different too. Loved it!!

    someone’s necessities are other’s luxuries.. we should consider that before complaining about our life….

  12. October 17, 2009 8:24 am

    A very Happy Diwali to you!!

    Same to you and your family.. 😀

  13. October 17, 2009 10:38 am

    The first and the last stories were very good… Before we identify something as excess, it becomes normal!! Human beings are quite silly not to understand the basic rules of nature!

    Destination Infinity

    right.. we just get used to luxuries too soon…

    dis is life….
    i dunno wen ll ppl realize its true value….

    hmm… but let us start with ourselves… and hope th erest of the world to join in…

    Very nice, Oorja! Loved the first one, especially. How ironical, and how very true. Good effort and great contribution to Blog Action Day. I didn’t do anything 😦 yet.

    “Action preaches better than sermon”
    so as long as you behave favourably.. not writing doesn’t matter… so cheer up.. you have the feel and that will reach to others…
