Comments on Citations made by Mr.Abhijeet Singh

1.Amendments made to Arms and Ammo Policy recently have nothing new and promising to the law abiding citizens of India. I agree the citations made from your kind self are clearly indicating the Government's nature of bending the Rules & Laws, where they can be unfeasible to common citizens.

2.Yes!Right to Keep & Bear Arms for citizens has been enshrined. Reforms should be made in Arms Act. Question arises "ARE YOU SAFE?" because no one is safe 21st century.

3.Awareness regarding the Arms and how to use arms in times of terror attacks or the privilege to protect himself(the citizen), should be provide by the government.

4.Government should make take steps to train citizens how to neutralize anti-elements of the state at the time of crisis instead of telling citizens wait for Police or NSG to come.

5.I disagree with above 2nd comment made by Mr.Hushang Irani. Here Licensing Authority is harassing the citizens for getting the Arms License. Restricting citizens from the very fundamental Right to freedom Article 21 in constitution of India "Protection of life and personal liberty.—No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by law". Licensing Authority is restricting this Right only to make it available for VIP & VVIPS only .I hope this the answer for your query "Critical Task".

What does Rules mean ?

Accidents are born only when we kill the RULES that are applied to us.
Rules are not meant to BEND, instead they are meant to MEND us for a proper social society.
"Follow RULES where ever they apply"

Microsoft is a software pirate!

Microsoft is a software pirate!
Oooh! I simply love this one! PC Welt (a German magazine) carries this amazing article titled "Did Microsoft use Warez for Windows XP?". For the uninitiated warez refers to pirated / cracked illegal copies of software. You can read the original article in German here or the English version here.

In a nutshell, someone at Microsoft used pirated software to make some of the audio files for the Windows Media Player tour. What's ironic is that Microsoft, the quintessential retailer of proprietary "closed source" software and a rabid anti-piracy advocate has been caught in the act of using a pirated copy of a US $400 audio encoding software.

And don’t take my word for it, see for yourself: -

Open notepad in Windows.
Select open and goto your Windows Directory (usually C:\Windows\).
Open the "Help" sub-directory.
Open the "Tours" sub-directory.
Open the "WindowsMediaPlayer" sub-directory.
Open the "Audio" sub-directory.
Open the "Wav" sub-directory.
Select any one of those files.

Instead of playing them in MediaPlayer or any other audio software, open the file in Notepad. Now scroll all the way to the bottom.

See those strings "SoundForge 4.5" and "Deepz0ne"? Yep, this means that the file was created with a cracked version of Soundforge, cracked by a cracker called Deepz0ne. Good show Microsoft! Always knew we could rely on you guys for ethical business practices!
