Constitution Allows “I Vote Not to Vote”

Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 act, in section “49-O” that a person can go to the polling booth,

Confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he doesn’t want to vote for anyone!

Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these seemingly notorious leaders have never disclosed it. This is called “49-O”.

Why should you go and say “I VOTE NOBODY”… because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that particular ward has received “49-O” votes more than 123,

Then that polling will be cancelled and will have to be Re-Polled. Not only that, but the Candidature of the Contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling.

Since people had already expressed their decision on them.

This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This would change the way, of our whole political system…

It is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public….

Please spread this news to as many as you know… Seems to be a wonderful weapon against Corrupt Politicians and Political Parties in India … show your power,

Expressing your desire not to vote for anybody is even more powerful than voting… so don’t miss your chance. So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O)!

Action To Save Our Climate
Action to save our climate is happening right now in Italy: As you read this our activists are scaling chimneys, chaining themselves to conveyor belts and blocking coal shipments at multiple locations in Italy.

They will be occupying coal-fired power stations during the G8 Summit beginning in Italy today and demanding that world leaders gathering for the summit make serious commitments to reducing world greenhouse gas emissions.

You can take action with them. You can demand that world leaders take personal responsibility for averting catastrophic climate change. You turn the Earth.
Follow our activists here: www.greenpeace.org/g8action
Thanks for your support.

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being. For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet. Yann Arthus-Bertrand, GoodPlanet Fundation President. HOME is a carbon offset movieSubtitles : http://www.goodplanet.org/I…PPR is proud to support HOME http://www.ppr.com . Do see the movie ……. Its amazing!!!

Festival of Cycling is back!

Leave a comment

The Tour de France 2009 kicks of its 96th edition, covering roughly 3,500 kilometers over 21 days. But it not an ordinary tour as Lance Armstrong is back riding in his favorite event.

In terms of geographical boundaries, the tour will be passing through six countries this time around: Monaco, France, Spain, Andorra, Switzerland and Italy.

Another novelty is the communication between the riders and their team managers being banned in stages 10 and 13.

I am will be following this year’s event on the web, hoping against hope that it turns out dope free.

Eternal Love

There was a girl
She was pretty but never thought so
Intelligent but never praised for
Kind and people used that
Everything about her made her so special
Always out of the crowd

One day, a guy approached her
He was not intelligent as she was
Not handsome that a girl would want him
All he sought was her love and care
Life time promise that she will
Share both happiness and sorrows

She needed some time to think
She was lost in her thoughts
Though she was aware of his kind hearted nature
And the person he is, there was something
Haunting her day and night

They both started speaking often
Met some day in a week
Shared their emotions
She boosted him little that he needed
To walk in a success path

The success and the companionship
Made him feel strong and
See the beauty of life
He was on cloud nine
Thinking of their lives together
And live happily ever after

Still she was uncertain
The inner beauty was masked by
The physical appearance
Any girl of her age would prefer
A handsome guy with looks
And style that makes her feel special

Another guy with great looks and talent
Met her and promised the better life
The dreams come true moment didn’t
Last for a while, he broke her heart
He found a girl prettier than this girl

All with broken heart and tears
Girl, didn’t speak a word for days
Forgot to smile and cheer
Avoided everyone and wished loneliness
Only tears and gloominess accompanied her

This guy, still mad for her
Was worried of her deeds
Went to her one fine day, asked for
A minute! Just hold her hands
Comforted with a smile and care

She embraced him, busted out of tears
The guy tried to make her smile
Made sure to let her know his lasting love
She dint speak a word, tears rolled on her cheeks
Without a gesture girl walked away

Days passed, months spun still there’s no
Sign of girl. All worried of her life
Guy visited her house with handful of flowers
Heart full of love and eyes full of dreams
But none at home; guy walked into the room

Saw his love. She was not moving
All pause! With flowers adorning her
She looked happy and was dressed like a bride
Guy walked slowly towards her
Without a word, tears rolled out

Girl was not real, all this time
He was looking at her photo frame
Shattered to see his love of life nailed on the wall
With garland! Walked to her mother
Asked if he can know the story

Girl was suffering from some medical condition and was
Fighting last days of her life
The saddest part, she was unaware
And got to know the day, just before
This guy approached to console her
Mother said the story

Guy cried and cried
Screamed to the sky and wept to the ocean
Mother said how much
The girl loved and wanted to share rest of her life
With him. Guy couldn’t digest the truth
Of girl’s demise and yelled n’ yelled

Guy not ready to share his love with
Any other girl; lived his rest of the life all alone
Made sure to get buried after his love of life
Now nothing remains! Except the unsaid love and
The long-lasting bond that they shared.

Many a times, we all think beauty is what matters when it comes to a life partner. If not everyone but at least the preference would be given to beauty. Because that is what is seen, the moment we see anyone.

Why beauty when you don’t have the true heart to love and wishful hands to embrace when you need. There are no limits for beauty. There is no one you can call – most beautiful lady / men.

Beautifulness won’t last forever. Everything on earth will undergo aging. As age passes, the beauty shades. The beauty you see today might not look the same tomorrow.

Though we think, we are the most beautiful – we are not sure what life ensures us tomorrow. Life promises not the beauty but the love.

Earth exists not for the beauty but for the love. When you look at someone, look with love filled eyes; the true eternal beauty of that person is seen. Appreciate the honesty and the kindness the person enclose.

Beauty dies not the beautiful thoughts. Beauty fades not the beautiful moments.

Life can be beautiful even with the person who is not beautiful. All you need is to realize how beautiful he/she makes your life with their companionship.

Once you are sure who the right person is for you, don’t give a thought for the external beauty. Eternal beauty is what that lasts forever and ever.

Make your life beautiful with the beauty that the person shares and not the beauty he/she shows.

Live life “Happily Ever after”
