Danilo(Brazil) and Boitt (Kenyan) Janjira Fort,India

Janjira Fort

Janjira is an island fort along the western Indian Coast,in Maharashtra state.about 150km South of Mumbai..and 300km  from Goa.
Janjira fort survives till this day,never conquered by the British nor any of the invaders of India,with the salty waters  of the ocean surrounding it and the borehole in janjira offers sweet waters..amazing.It overlooks the village of Murud..and is believed to be occupied by Ethiopian and traders from Africa..
Janjira Fort
Janjira can be accesed by Dhows or sail boats,20 Indian rupees per head.
Janjira fort bastions..
Rusting Cannons
The British invaded..the fort...Shivajis too but they all failed..in 1947..The fort ceased..to function...as a state..When we visited it (2010) It is in ruins and the bastions stand tall mashed by the sea,the cannons rusting,the palaces no more.the mosque too and it cries out to conservationists to preserve its past glory..along the Konkan coast.
The main gate is visible when you approach the fort and a view of Rajapuri is visible from there where it faces

Kenya My country







Our government should be open and ready to listen to the voices of the common man and the millions who toil to see that the nation has reached the summit of development and freedom.It should also help the people with whom democracy cannot be thumbs up if not for their small finger ,but why should our people bite the bullet while the leaders dine in mansions? Tell me.....why?
Give the Fourth Estate (press) of the society a chance and the sail to freedom is imminent otherwise we cannot sail without a ship lest we forget Jonah and the big fish.
My lamentation comes with the systematic threat from terror groups around the glob and piracy in high seas off the coast of Somalia and the entire horn of Africa.Yes we have security in our nation Kenya but what about the net/porous border from Mandera to the Indian ocean.Are we out of the hood yet?
In the face of terror we have to be alert as chamois, open our eyes like the bald eagle,soar like hawk and sleep with one eye open.Embrace the true spirit of humanity in the wake of threats and treat people as your friend without intimidation.Misconception of patriotism and disloyalty lie in brink of the urgency,we presume that we are safe when the sun shine but what about in darkness?Burn the midnight oil and act on threats while the moon shines to keep the sky-scrapers safe for you ,me and the visitors to our nation.
Let us embrace the spirit of oneness and bury the hatchet of post election violence.We have Kenya to build for posterity,we have our neighbourhood to assist and bring their house in order so that when our poultry cross the fence they will tell you and not be shot at sight.
We don't need drones neither do we need spy plane but we need peace of heart and minds if we have to succeed in living in peace and harmony.
Our faces should bear the spirit of oneness.loyalty and willingness to trust and give information to keep our motherland safe from that despise freedom.



Solidarity forever
RALLY AROUND OUR FLAG

Long live Kenya-Joshua Boitt

Dwindling Education Systems

   Who lives among shadows? a pessimist does.You should be determined to wave off the flag of plagiarism that devours the efforts of a true academician,recently a German minister was caught napping and accused copying someone else work and claiming to be his own.Use the Internet for good,to gain knowledge for plagiarism.
    Develop the culture of positive thinking and always say I can,try even if you fail you will reach the summit one day.Be competent enough to depend upon you knowledge and read wide to attain to the leaves if not the flowers of success.
    No one was born genius,we learn,we develop and let the spirit of learning be in you.Copying has been a culture among many students,flying papers,writing on thighs,using gesture in the case of choices in exams,discussion in examinations room,bribing the invigilator and supervisors to get copying materials.Notes on mobile phones and clothes,on exams desks-Copy culture
   Examiners should check on this vice that eats upon the once cherished ambitions and now its has turned its ugly head and become a business as our teachers open up coaching classes to tap money and lucrative business that even the government keeps a blind eye.
  The definition of a university has lost meaning,Paranoia of success drives students, students compete with their minds instead of the real challenges that face them,they commit suicide because of failing in exams no one to guide and whisper sense that they have not failed in life.Completion is the order,competence money will provide,jobs money take care of. Profession back doors are open to crore-parties and nepotist, who will be there for the rest? ...why then do employers need experience ..its because what students are supposed to get is just but a tip of the iceberg.If a University is an institution that offers degrees why then colleges that are opened by business minded politicians academicians offer degrees...?
  The flood gates are open those without wish to enter those with minds to swim
  There is a scam larger than the Watergate scandal,bigger than the Golden berg,mightier than that the 2G scam and that's education cycle that is driven by money and not quality.The government has a scheme afoot to ameliorate on this trend that brews doctors and engineers among other academicians that graduate and are incompetent enough to take up challenges in their fields,we breed bogus engineers,financial advisers and doctors because of these,we are faced with financial meltdowns because of the systems that is money driven..who is there to save our dwindling education?
We continue to live in flats that are crumbling having cracks, skyscrapers that instill fear among the metro dwellers,each day is a nightmare.Roads that last for a better part of the day and flashed by raindrops,bridges that pose dangers to the commuters,Intravenous feeding injections that kill out pregnant women,drugs made of chalk,skies that are no longer safe, where pilots are made of bought marksheets pilot certificates are issued backdoor.It is difficult to get admission to an aviation school and easier to be granted a pilot licence.Let us build our careers on a solid rock and learn while you can..from your teachers,from our parents and those who offer wisdom.
Where is the tactical astuteness?Diluted careers strive in educational institutions where name storms is the order of the day,adverts injected into our minds of the self proclaimed universities and institution that claim to offer the best,topnotch They wolves in sheep clothing.A better name of an institution comes from alumni not those who aspire to join.
  Money brews brain drain,a shot in the system,adviser's offer advice for money and prestige not to save the society that breeds them.The right hand parallel to the left.The performance is recognized by the outcome in the fields not in publicity of schools,colleges,universities and educational institutions in the idiot box.Journalism should not allow cut and paste adverts based on money but by the quality under investigative journalism.
We are living in the age adulterated education system.

Japan Tsunami

The memories of 2004 Indian ocean Tsunami fades not and living till date,natures fury comes and disaster strikes at the heart of peace,why! no one knows.We need to offer prayers for the people of Japan in this hard times to calm the stormy shores and banks.
Hang on Japan,foot bravely. 
The threat of radiation looms and power plants explosions and radioactive leakage heightens.People living near these places are affected,its time to join hands and the United Nations and the rest of the world should offer immediate help.
Peace and calm be with you,a friend and nearer to the heart we are together.When peace like a river,along the stormy banks, I stand with the people of Japan In this hard times.
May you have a brave heart,God comfort you and wipe away your tears for a better tomorrow.
Yumi.
