“We attain the real freedom only when a lonely women can walk freely anywhere in our country during mid-night”
_ Mahatma Gandhi
The wise man I am pretty certain, alluded these words at the whole world and not just India. But anyway, this is beyond the scope and context of this post and the author shall leave it for another day ….
Anyway … I am tempted to but would not comment on pride or hypocrisy behind celebrating the Indian ‘Independence’ day.I am tempted to but would not comment on the service-oriented and uninnovative mentality of most Indians. I am tempted but would not comment on a nominal independence of a country still ensnared in dystopic politics, buerecracy, orthodoxy, casteism, closet-capitalism, the world’s highest concentration of racism and other blah blah ….
Phew! I dont deem myself patient enough to speak about these. But what I would do is share with the women some effective self defence tips I found on the Internet, partly in my respects to the great man quoted above 🙂 So ladies! Enjoy and may the force be with you….

The author has searched for long. rather too long, before he found the legal/legitimate facility for what has been quite the tangible wish for nearly a decade. (Now that, you see, is not one of those other ones of the author’s whims which last for the time duration of a tachyon)
All dust settled ….I am talking about this ! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_martial_arts
And I found just the right place near home. http://www.xtremefightfederation.com
3 sessions down and I seem to have had faced the toughest training regimen of my life in the last 1 week. But its a good endorphin induced feeling at the end of every training evening. And since the whole theme of *learning to fight* is macho in its idea, I guess boys are biologically built to endorse it (Haha! Did I sound like Freud )
Well ! For me, its much more simulataneously taxing and satisfying than even the running or the weight training at the gym. Period.
So gear up gentlemen! Stretch your knuckles, shake your feet, rub your palms, and lets get ready… to fight ! 😛
