Hosting with Google, Afghanistan Endgame, War over Corruption and a Flat Tyre

And it went down. You might have noticed that jammyspeaks.com was down for past few hours. How it happened? Well, I was trying to figure out a way to host blogger on my own hosting, but it looks that blogger does not provide for this. So, I have to share hosting with Google only..!!
And yeah, the site went down for the first time in 3 years...!

Well, this blog post was to handle some serious issues. By this, I mean, I intended to talk about the endgame being planned for Afghanistan right now by the US and other nations including UK, Russia among others. And how Afghanistan is being used by different countries as a way to show their supremacy or for some selfish reason. The fact remains that the situation in Afghanistan is really critical right now and the decisions has to be taken very carefully.

Also, I wanted to talk about the 2nd innings of 'Satyagraha' in India, and how vague the idea sounds now. How in all these talks of the war between civil society and government, we are forgetting the main player, our nation. How it is being used by many as nothing but another way to shoot engines of money making machines. And how all these 'big' players are playing with emotions of super emotional Indians.

Also I wished to talk about the death of an artist. Death of an artist who was already murdered some six years ago. These are the things that are filling up the prime slot of all the major news channel, the pages of daily and my mind. And I would be coming forward with my point of view, my opinion over these topics soon.

Well among other reason (experiments with hosting), one another reason I did not write a full fledged argumentative passage is 'Flat Tyre'. Yeah, a flat tyre. I was in full mood to write up the post while I was returning home today. But I have not even driven a mile when I felt something odd, and saw this 'flat tyre'. Trust me, in scorching heat of Delhi, a flat tyre is not a nice sight. But nothing could be done now. The tyre was flat and it had to be changed. And when I ended up with the change of tyres,  I was fully drenched in sweat and just wanted to lay down.

My opinion over the subjects I touched upon initially in the post would come soon and you may find it a touch critical or orthodox, whichever way you put it. But till then its a wrap up.
