The way things are...

I am too wary about complaining too much about things. There are things that I keep quiet about, and then I am questioned why I didn't voice it at the right time. Contradictory to this, when I do complain, I am told "some things are just the way they are. It's difficult to change them" or something like "nothing much can be done about it". What am I supposed to do? Seriously. Sometimes I complain selectively.

Now I think its better to rant about it to people who don't give a damn about the problem but ready to listen. Get it all off the chest. Then move on. There is politics everywhere. Rules and regulations are in place to shut people's mouth. If a rule is breached and you voice about it, you'd be told to shut up in a nice way. In a polite way. This is how problems are dealt with in Britain. Sometimes you fall into the trap and shake your head like a fool and say Oh I see. That's what it is. Ok I take it on my shoulder and I move on.  There you are. Your concern has been addressed and dealt with. With no problems. This is how the system works.

I shall tell you one incident for example, my father used to be a t-mobile customer for more than 10 years who was persuaded to change to EE when he upgraded his contract. Now, he was charged a significant sum in his bill for spams from a fraud company and when we called EE to discuss, we were told that, We are sorry, this third party company is known for these extra charges, this has happened to many other customers. Nothing can be done but we can stop it in the future. How comes this never happened before but now? How a third party company that charges you for nothing got the mobile number? Why can you not block such companies from charging your customers like this although you were aware of it? EE was not even apologetic about it.
This has happened about a couple of months ago and this post is not alone about this.

So, if you want to complain about something to someone in a higher position than you, think twice whether you will win or not. More than winning, the whole point must be about bringing a change. If you don't think anything is going to change for the better, you might as well save yourself from getting a troublemaker name.

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …
