14th October 1978, I was born out of Mother’s Womb;

14th October,2010, I was re-born out of a Hearth, which I thought would be my Tomb.

14-10-2010, I was re-born with an Operation, 500mtrs Deep & 66 days Long.

14-10-1978, I was born, because of my Father Mother wish;

14-10-2010, I was re-born, because I had ventured to fulfill somebody’s Copper needs.

14-10-1978, I was born crying that could only be heard;

14-10-2010, I was re-born crying, with tears, wetting my unshaved beard.

14-10-1978, I was born with closed eyes to sun’s light;

14-10-2010, I was re-born only to find Atacama’s moon shining so bright.

14-10-1978, I was born with kiss of my father, that was featherlite;

14-10-2010, I was re-born with hug of my son, that so tight.

14-10-1978, I was born as Bolivian;

14-10-2010, I was re-born, this time as Chilean.

14-10-1978, I was born with Mother’s milk Delicious;

14-10-2010, I was re-born, with Atacama’s Cactus also tonglicious.

14-10-1978, I was born all alone;

14-10-2010, I was re-born, with 33 of us, rising like & with, Phoenix along.

Dedicated to all Miners, who fought their fate for 66 days and also a Toast to Human fighting spirit and a big THANK to ALMIGHTY.


The real “Big Boss” October 12, 2010

Color TV is featuring its 4th season of Big Boss with fun fare by introducing Salman Khan & also getting free publicity by launching all controversial characters into the house. But this is reel and the real “Big Boss” is happening, thousands of miles away. It is so far that, even Google Map is not able to calculate the distance between the two sites.One is in Northern Hemisphere, the other in Southern Hemisphere; one is Asia and other in South America.

Just imagine how condition of 33 miners trapped at a depth of 500 mts in one of the dryest place of Earth (Atacama Desert) from 5th August (68th day as on 12th Oct,2010) and still continuing. Just compare this with Reel Big Boss, where all contestants, dwell in Luxury of a Villa, with AC rooms, Mineral water to take bath, unlimited electric supply to waste, unlimited supply of exotic food and 24 X 7 slangs of time pass. Even 1 degC fluctuate in temperature results in flaring of emotions among the contestants.

In real Big Boss, its matter of Life and death, its matter of saving the last drop of water dripping from the walls of Mines, inhaling the dust of mines, complete darkness with only visibility coming from torches of mine caps and temperatures above 50 degC. With thought of such situation raises my hair, forgetting it going through a such a situation.

Hats off to those real 33 heroes, their fighting spirit and I pray god they get a re-birth asap. Amen.
