About

The tag line of this blog "Si vis pacem, para bellum!" - Latin for "If you wish for peace, prepare for war!" pretty much says it all. Gun rights is currently a much maligned & ignored civil rights issue in India. This blog, in conjuntion with the www.indiansforguns.com forum is our attempt to raise awareness on this very important issue.

19 January 05 - 13:05Some pictures

Here are some pictures of the Jeep I'd built (a few years back) - yep it's the same one that caught fire! ;-)

For those who care to know - It was built on a CJ-3B Jeep (right-hand drive) clone manufactured in India by Mahindra & Mahindra to Indian Army specs. The engine used was a 4 cylinder, 2500cc Isuzu diesel (with matched 4 speed gearbox and 4WD transfer case). Both pictures were taken sometime in 2000.

Me & my old Jeep



That's me at our house in the village, had just gotten back from a shoot...

Trying to get it going again



My cousin (standing) & me (crawling under the beast) - trying to get it moving again! ;-)

19 January 05 - 01:05Birthday

It's been a long standing Birthday tradition at home that each year Dad and I go out and distribute blankets to the poor. Since this is pretty much the coldest part of the year... it isn't hard to find people huddled on the pavements that could use an extra blanket (or more).  Quite frankly I've always been a bit skeptical of the entire practice - most of the guys on the pavement seem like junkies and in all probability will go and sell the damn things for an extra fix or two :-p  But charity of any description seems to please Dad and I learnt long ago that arguing with him is a fruitless exercise... so I just go along with it each year - dutifully going through the motions of helping out the "needy"... Not that I'm some unfeeling cold hearted person, it's just that giving hand-outs isn't my first choice of how to practice charity. (more)

10 January 05 - 12:12On the Campaign Trail

In the next couple of hours I'll be leaving for Hisar - again! This time though the motives are much nobler. I'll be spending the next one month there, on the campaign trail for one of my uncle's re-election to the state (Haryana) legislature. By the looks of it, this is going to be one though fight!

His constituency is one of the few "all rural" constituencies in Haryana with about 42 odd villages. So in all probability will not be blogging for a while - hell I might not even be checking my mail! That'll be a new experience, no e-mail for a month! ;-)

06 January 05 - 21:16The Great Mouse Hunt

Returned home on Monday to find everyone in a tizzy about what seemed to be a rodent infestation. Everything had been tried (mouse traps, sprays etc.) and failed; so (as always) I was chosen to FIX IT!! Having just come back from my trip to Hisar, it seemed to be a bit of a let down to be designated the official "Mouse Hunter" :-p  - but no one was willing to enter the kitchen and I was hungry as hell! So I grudgingly got down to figuring out where the little buggers were holed up... A little bit of investigation revealed that the back side of the refrigerator was the most likely candidate.

So I dragged out the blasted machine, opened up the rear cover and started poking a mop handle into its dark innards. (more)

06 January 05 - 20:08Trip to Hisar

Just got back from a 3 day trip to Hisar (also spelt Hissar). Had promised a few friends that I'd take them for some clay pigeon shooting but the timings never seemed to work out... So this trip had been due for quite some time now (sorry for the delay guys).

We departed from Delhi on Saturday around 2 PM. We were to leave a bit earlier but one of the guys got "the runs" (I won't say which one) - I guess too much partying on New Year's Eve ;-)... (more)
