 ATMs (Automatic Teller Machines) completely changed the landscape of  Personal Banking in  recent years.  But without attentive human intervention, they remain as dumb machines or you could aptly call them as Autocratic Teller Machines !!

The other day I desperately tried  to draw cash from my bank's ATM  on  pay day.    Like other earlier countless occasions, it shamelessly  tittered  with 'NO'.  I luckily saved my situation by taking cash from   nearby ATM of a private bank where there seems to be no dearth of  cash on any given day.

In a world of restless ambitions, physical fitness is so vital not only to embark higher goals in life,  but  remain cheerful, disease-free all through that journey. The daily dose of motivation to carve out sculpted bodies easily comes for celebrities, especially film personalities. Since they are under constant public gaze,  they get the unparalleled thrust to do the fitness regimen compare to their poor cousins in ordinary folks.

The recent ban on screening of  film 'Aarakshan' (Hindi) in some States like Uttar Pradesh  has created some furore.   Though the film has been cleared by Censor Board, some State Governments citing  possible law &  order problems have banned the film in their respective States which amounts to denial of freedom of  expression.

The moot point here is how  State Governments can ban a film when it is cleared by Central Censor Board which is a statutory body.  If anything objectionable is there,  it is the look out of Censor Board and  a blanket ban by  State Governments on the pretext of law & order problems has no merit.   This lead  the producers went to the  Supreme Court which cleared the decks for release of film in  Uttar Pradesh.

The 2G Spectrum scandal  and irregularities in awarding contracts for Common Wealth Games not only dented our but has brought one core issue to  limelight : CORRUPTION.    

This is first time in India that  a Minister  and top level bureaucrats including an MP and some businessmen were put behind bars for their role  and the highest judiciary has kept its vigilant eyes on the investigation.   So we are in the midst of  turbulent times.

Amidst innumerable pulls and pressures of daily life, it is quite natural to drift away with rising blood pressure, offending our bodies to an irreparable level. Sometimes, it looks that the whole wisdom accumulated over the years take a frantic ride and raw emotions overpower us. The sole culprit is our  externality of mind obsessed too much with worldly affairs.

The anger when it swells out of proportion , causes considerable damage in relationships. We loose sheen in daily pleasures of life like listening to a favourite song, watching a good movie or chit-chat with family/ children.

Development is key to any problem. When people are deprived of basic facilities like roads, drinking water, sanitation, education, irrigation and communication , naturally the seed of discontentment sprouts which may cascade into mass movement. The Naxal problem and Telangana row are latest examples of problems on socio-economic front brewing the country. Unless, we take the problem head on, it will become intractable.

Before, I actually dwell on the Telangana tangle, let me make it clear that neither I am pro nor against for a separate Telangana State. I am simply concerned to the socio-economic development of the region with political empowerment so that the people are not felt isolated in their own land.

Considering the magnitude of problem, Govt. of India set up a committee headed by retired Justice Srikrishna to submit a report after consultations with all stakeholders. The Committee submitted
