HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOB MARLEY !

” SOME PEOPLE FEEL THE RAIN . OTHERS JUST GET WET ! ”

Bob Marley.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The Legendary Musician, Bob Marley, Would Have Been 68 Today !

Born As Nesta Robert Marley To A Teenaged Mother And A Middleaged Father, In The St. Ann Parish In Suburban Jamaica On February 6, 1945, Bob Marley , Just In A Brief Lifetime Of 36, Attained One Of The Most Original n Influential Status Of Musicians That The World Has Witnessed Ever !

A Product Of Local Jamaican Fusion Music Of 60s, Populary Termed As REGGAE MUSIC, Bob Marley Led A Life Full Of Experiments n Innovations Hitherto Unexplored In The Music Arena!

As The Most Definitive Pillar Of Reggae, Bob Marley, Al Thorough His Active Music Life (roughly 18yrs.), Tried To Blend Together Almost Every Aspect Of Human Existence, be That Political, Social ,Cultural . . . .et.al Into His Creative Outpours And, Thereby Took An Honest Attempt To Address The Challenges Before Human Society In General And Impoverished Jamaicans In Particular !

At 14, Bob Had Left His Native Place And Shifted To The Capital Town Of Kingston And Learned The Nuances Of Music n Arts Under The Tutelege Of A Famous Rastafarian Mr. HIGGS.

With Peter Tosh n Levingston , Bob Started The Band Named The Wailers And Launched Himself Into Music For Once n All !

As The Prevalent Vogue Of The Time In 60s, Bob Too Adopted The Tenets Of A Newer Form Of Faith-System, Technically Known As ‘RASTAFARIAN MOVEMENT’ – a pattern of beliefs Emphasizing Upon A Near Rejection Of Current Forms Of Faith n Religion And Returned Towards The Mythological Roots Of Human Origins !

Simply Put, The Rastafarians,as the members were called, Lived A Bohemian Life And Preached Sort Of Hippie Culture!

The Music Became A Potent Vehicle Of Expressions Emanating From Politics, Religion, Spirituality n The Likes !

With A Heavy Bass, Roaring Drums, Slow Pace, Instrumentation, Emphasis On Third Offbeat and a few other features, The Reggae Music Was Basically Sound Oriented That Had The Flavors Of Jazz, Saka, Local Jamaican Rhythms . . . . .et.al!

This Type Of Musical Genre Has A Laidback Feel And Bob Marley Made Sort Of An Idyllic Ambience People Had No Choices Except Being Hyptonized !

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

BOB MARLEY : EVERY MAN IS A UNIVERSE WITHIN HIMSELF !

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Bob Marley Brought His Jamaican Music To The World Outside And Had Lived A Great Deal In The United States.

His 1977 Music Album, ‘EXODUS’ That Has Smashing Hits Like, ‘JAMMING’ , ‘ONE LOVE’ , ‘WAITIN’ IN VAIN’ , Has Been Voted By The American Magazine,TIME, As The Greatest Album Of The Last Century.

‘I SHOT THE SHERIFF’ , ‘BUFFALO SOLDIERS’ , ‘IS THAT LOVE’ are also mega hits !

Due To The Rising Status Inside Jamaica, where some people equated him to the rank of prophet, Bob Marley Became A Perceived Threat To Some Fringe Sections And That Had Resulted In An Assasination Bid Which Marley Luckily Escaped From.

Married A Singer Named Rita Anderson Of ‘I Three’ Band, Bob Marley Had 11 Children Many Of Whom Are Now Quite A Success In Music Industry.

Bob Marley Died Of Cancer At An Early Age Of 36, On May 11, 1981.

His Legacy Lives On Through His Music That Are Full Of The Messages Of Hope n Light n Positivity — Helping People To Carry On n On Amid Hardships n Struggles !

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,BOB MARLEY !

OBAMA NAMED TIME MAGAZINE’S PERSON OF THE YEAR 2012 !

President Obama Declared The Winner Of Time Magazine’s Highly Revered and At Times, Controversial Poll That Crowns Someone Who Impacts The Most In A Particular Year As ‘TIME PERSON OF THE YEAR’.People Give Importance To Time Magazine’s Choice Worldwide – Thanks To Time Magazine’s International Standing !

Beating The Likes Of The Sensational Poster-Girl Of Protest Against The Repressive Regime,MALALA YOUSAFZAI and The Apple Inc.’s TIM COOK and The Egyptian Confused President,MUHAMMED MORSI and A Group Of Other Notables From The Entire World, OBAMA SHOWS THAT HE IS MOST IMPORTANT MAN,largely due to his second win of the us’ presidency,AT LEAST FOR THE TIME BEING !

TIME Has Dwelt At Length On Obama’s Seemingly Mega Win Of This November Presidential Election And Expressed Facts That Though Obama Won Two Less States Than In 2008, But, Still He Held To A Whopping Margin (Something That Was Quite Unexpected Given The Obiquitious Neck-a-Neck Fight With Mitt. Romney).

Time Magazine Also Highlighted Mr. Obama’s Emotional-Quotient or E.Q. And Illustrated It With His Cries After His Second Term Win and His Speech Post Sandy Hook Massacre,CT !

Time Also Mutely Hinted Obama’s Failures Of The Last Four Years And The Mounting Challenges That He Faces On Fiscal Management Coupled With A Growing Sense Of Despair Amongst The Work Force Who Continue To Grapple With The Basic Problems Like Jobs,Housing n Savings!

Obama Also Has Rather Bigger Challenges On International Front,especially,With The Burning n Instable Arab World n Israel.

Time Gave Huge Credit To Obama’s Healthcare Policy Measures n His Below The Par,Yet, Sustained Efforts To Improvise The Economy !

IT IS A POPULAR SAYING : ‘WINNERS TAKE ALL’ and A SecondTerm Win Has Pushed Many A Failures Of Obama Under The Mat, But, It’s Not The TIME MAGAZINES that will write history,Rather,IT’S THAT HORRIBLE UNIVERSAL CONCEPT (TIME) THAT SHALL BE THE ULTIMATE ARBITER !

EGYPT, MOHAMMED MORSI, AND THE NEWLY DRAFTED CONSTITUTION :A FEW THOUGHTS !

” WE ARE. . . . .THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ARE LEARNING HOW TO BE FREE ! ”
Mohammed Morsi In A Chat With TIME Magazine a day before yesterday !
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The CONSTITUENT-ASSEMBLY,dominated by the ISLAMISTS, has approved THE NEWLY WRITTEN CONSTITUTION OF EGYPT within a hectic schedule of around 16hrs. !Since Thursday Afternoon To Today’s Morning,The 85 Members Present And Voting,Have Given A Go Ahead Sign To The Final Draft Of The Egyptian Constitution Comprising A Total Of 234 Articles !

The Original Constituent Assembly Had 100 Members.There Are Around 30 Members Who Boycotted The Nature Of Its Composition And The Dominance Of The Islamists !They Are Largely Liberals and Minorities Who Withdrew From The Original Constituent Assembly Citing What They Described As ‘THE HIJACKING OF EGYPTIAN CONSTITUTION MAKING PROCESS BY THE ISLAMISTS MEMBERS largely hailing from Muslim Brotherhood.These People Expressed Their Doubts Plus Fear Regarding The Islamization Of The Constitution And The Ignorings Of The Minorities,Women,Christians . . ..et.al ! They Lamented Over The Non-Secular Character Of The Proposed Constitution !

Their Apprehensions Proved Right Today !
The Now 85 Members Assembly Has No Christian Member and Only Three Women!
The Newly Approved Constitution Has Clearly Laid Down That The Guiding Principle Behind The Egyptian Constitution Will Be ‘SHARIA’ or The ISLAMIC LAW and JURISPRUDENCE! And,if any confusion arises regarding any clauses of Sharia,Then The Most Honored Islamic Institution Of Egypt,The ‘AL-AZHAR’ Shall Be Consulted And The Rendered Opinion Thereof Shall Be Binding In Nature !

SIMPLY PUT, IT MEANS THERE ARE CURTAILMENTS OF THE POWER OF THE LEGISLATURE. . ..because the chances of the LEGISLATIVE OVERSIGHT will be zero !
The Secular,The Liberals,The Human Rights Groups And Others Have Strongly Criticised Such Constitution !

This Constitution Has Not Any Article Vesting THE LAW OF EQUALITY between MAN and WOMAN !It means that there is going to be more stricter regimentation of the fair-sex!And,That’s A Clear Cut Violation Of Human Rights,rather,THE TRUE DEMOCRATIC ETHOS PLUS ESSENCE GET DEFEATED !

Now The Constitution Goes To The Desk Of The Egyptian President,Mr. Mohammed Morsi For His Assent .And,as per reports in the media,This Takes Place Tomorrow And As Per The Expectations,Mohammed Morsi Will Sign This So Called Sacrosanct Document,The Constitution!
All This Will Be Completed By Tomorrow i.e. SATURDAY !
And,According To The Rule,Within 30 days From The Time Of President’s Signature,TheDocument Will Be Put To The REFERRENDUM or PLEBISCITE !

The President’s Spokesman as well as a few Brotherhood Members, Say That The Required Referrendum Shall Be Completed By The Mid December !

THE WHOLE AFFAIRS SEEM TO BE KIND OF A ‘RUSHING-THROUGH’ ACT AND THIS IN ITSELF CASTS DOUBTS ON THE INTENTIONS OF THE ISLAMISTS HEADED POLITICALLY BY MR.MORSI !

The Members Of The Newly Created NATIONAL SALVATION FRONT comprised of all the diverse groups that stood against the undemocratic POWER-GRAB by Mr. Morsi, Have Been Camping At The Symbol Of The Arab Spring,THE TAHRIR SQUARE, For a week and Their Resolve Appears Firmer And Unshakeable At Present!
THEY SAY THEY WILL LEAVE THE SQUARE ONLY WHEN MR. MORSI RESCIND AND REVOKE THE DECREE AND A NEW ASSEMBLY BE CONSTITUTED THAT COULD REFLECT SORT OF RAINBOW NATURE INSTEAD OF ONLY ONE HUE,THE ISLAMISTS !

Uncertainty And Chaos Are The Presiding Dieties At Present !

Also,The Supreme Judicial Body, The Constitutional Court, Is Going To Give Its Judgement Regarding The Question Of LEGITIMACY or Otherwise Of The Constituent-Assembly That Had Dubious Distinctions Of Coloring The Constitution As Per Their Whims n Fancy !
The Appellate Court Had Been Approached By Many People Including Those Liberal n Secular Members Of The Said Assembly Who Boycotted The Workings Claiming The The Thoroughly Partisan Attitudes Of The Islamists !

Expectations Are High That The Apex Court Will Disapprove Of The Legality Of The Constituent Assembly And Will Declare It Null n Void !

What Will Happen Then ? Where Shall Go The Weight Of The Decree Of Morsi – which has already been dismissed by the judiciary on account of Interference With The Power And Function Of The Judiciary !

STAKES ARE HIGH ! EGYPT’S AIR IS LADEN WITH SUSPICION AND SUSPENSE ! THERE IS BOUND TO BE SOME THRILLER PRETTY SOON !

AND, AMID ALL THESE HOTCH-POTCH, DEMOCRACY WILL BE A CASUALITY !
