Good Bye Jade…

Posted by Saipradeep on March 23, 2009

I am from India and honestly knew nothing about Big Brother or Jade Goody until her racism row with Shilpa Shetty. At that point of time I think I hated her for her racist comments. Today, I write this tribute to the same woman, I write this with a heavy heart, a heart filled with pain. I do not know Jade Goody personally, I have not met her or for a fact even been close to the country where she lived, but it feels like I have lost someone close to heart. It feels like someone who you have known all your life has gone away. I think that is the charisma that Jade carried. In spite of all her flaws in her professional and personal life, she has ended up touching many lives. She has won the hearts of many; many of them are like me, people who have just read her story.

My prayers are with Jade’s family.

Jackiey (Jade’s mom), you gave us an angel to look up to. Words cannot express how you feel, for to rise a child and to see it die is the hardest thing in life. Fate has been cruel to you and I hope you see joy in being a part of your grandchildren’s lives.

Freddie & Bobby (Jade’s sons), nothing that I say could lessen the pain you feel today. As time goes on, the pain will ease, but always remember your mother, for she will be the shining star you find in the sky looking over you all your life…

Jack (Jade’s husband), you had a choice when Jade was diagnosed with Cancer and you chose to be with her till the end. We are proud of you for that. You are a brave man and a lovely human being.


You have touched many lives in the past few months through your brave fight. You have always been a star… even when you fell; you went like a falling star blazing away across the sky…

You have been a part of our lives in the past few months and will continue to be a part of our memories in the years to come.

Good bye Jade… Rest in Peace!!!

Can even God Save Pakistan?

Posted by Saipradeep on March 4, 2009

Surprisingly, I was not shocked when I heard that the Srilankan cricket team was under terrorist attack last morning. Don’t take me wrong, I was definitely concerned over the well being of those cricketers but somehow, did not feel shocked when I heard the turn of events. What more can you expect in a country that by all means has literally gone to dogs. A country that promoted terrorism as a way of life is now being bitten by its own snake. It is being torn to pieces by a devil that it groomed. Indeed it is true… “What goes around, comes around…”

Today, they are at the edge beyond which there is no path for return. For a fact, many believe that they have already crossed the point of no return. They are now forced to eat the rotten fruits of a tree they sowed years ago. This incident will give those who sit in Pakistan and still claim that they have nothing to do with terrorism, a rude jolt. I just hope that they swallow their pride, look at what is in their backyard and clean the mess that is stinking beyond tolerable limits.

I pray for the souls of the brave and innocent people who lost their lives in this crossfire. May their souls rest in peace!!!
