Mesut Ozil didn’t deserved this!
He retired from International Football at the age of 29, despite being the top player for Germany and at his prime.
Il est un 5 time German Footballer of the year. The Très cher German Player of all time.
He won the Coupe du monde en 2014, 2 Euro Cup wins, La Liga with Real Madrid, FA Cup with Arsenal. Golden Ball Nominee at his first World Cup at age 22.
It all started when he met the Turkish President Tayyip Erdogen in May 2018 and posed with him and exchanged an Arsenal Jersey, the Turkish Elections are announced that time and many viewed this is as politically motivated meeting and Ozil supporting him.
Erdogen is viewed as Pro Islamist though he is elected by elections it is known that he denies political freedom and slowly grabing power from other democratic institutions.
Ozil’s parents are from Turquie and he said that it is respecting his parents culture and roots by meeting the country’s head. He denied in supporting him politically or morally and there was nor any intention.
The German Football Association Criticized Ozil for posing with him and he was heavily criticized by Extreme Right Wing Political parties in Germany.
After defending Champions Germany performing badly and its knockout in the first round Ozil faced the majority backlash as he was the best player in the team abused by fans, got death threat emails, calls. He was racially abused.
But when Germany performed badly, Ozil featured in two of the country's three games, and averaged more chances per 90 minutes (5.5) than any other player in the competition. Yet he was criticized racially asking him to stop being Turkish and be a German.
Ozil always said that he is a proud German First and is really excited to play for Germany.
This was taken when Erdogen was Turkish PM in 2011, 3 years later Germany won the World Cup.
Then Ozil is Germany’s pride and does n’t matter if he is an immigrant or have a Turkish or Muslim background.
When Germany failed, they said he is playing dirt for years, he is a Turkish pig, he is an immigrant and not German.
Tailend: Its Ok to participate in a World Cup hosted by Russia that has no corruption, great political freedom and the world’s best and “democratically” elected head Poutine.
Just Shaking hands no intentions.
Waiting to see France get knocked out in the first round in the next World Cup, What will they say to their “immigrant” players.

Get the Big Picture of your surrounding,
Society: Trump is fool, wish someone blocks his twitter handle.
Moi: He is trying to do business in his own way, creating war like situation, and open defence market for america. Hope “America First”.
Society: don’t understand why people now flock to canada for higher studies, these days.
Moi: Canada has opened three year work visa for indians, immediately after their studies. Last year 40,000 indians went there. They would easily become citizen of canada with this visas.
Society: Don’t understand why people flocking to B.Sc., (Agri) degree now. Trying to make worst like Engineering.
Moi: Government made B.sc., (Agri) as a professional course, like engg., doctor, lawyer, they would be Agriculturalists in future. Necessary for current times.
Society: Is Tipu Sultan bad ? should we celebrate his birthday ?
Moi: It depends, he destroyed temples, at the same time, gave grants to build certain temples, purely on political calculation. More to learn from his administrative skills. Yes you can celebrate.
Society: Without Gandhi too, India would have got independence.
Moi: NO, Mr. Bose may be the reason for immediate withdrawal of Britain from India. Without Gandhi it would have become another 1857 not 1947. Without Gandhi no India.
If any more to know, please comment. I would answer, If I know.

Freezing Future: Inside Chang La, India’s Doomsday Vault In The Himalayas
India’s ultimate back-up for its food supply, the Chang La seed vault in Ladakh has been built to stand the test of time — and the challenge of global catastrophes.
The Svalbard Global Seed Vault recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of its official opening in 2008. Built by the Norwegian Government on a remote island deep inside the Arctic Circle, this fail-safe repository houses the planet’s largest collection of seeds that come from nearly every country in the world, including varieties of staple crops like maize, rice, wheat, barley, and more.
Svalbard Global Seed Vault
The idea behind this invaluable vault is to safeguard the world’s flora from global catastrophes, both natural and man-made. For instance, if nuclear war, coastal inundation, prolonged drought or plagues of pests leads to extinction of crop species in the future, governments will be able to request seeds from the vault to revive their agricultural sector.
Little wonder that the Svalbard Vault is referred to as the world’s doomsday vault. Interestingly, few people know that India too has its own doomsday vault and that its located in the snowy heights of the Himalayas.
Perched at at a height of 17,300 feet above sea level, India’s doomsday vault lies in Chang La (a high-altitude mountain pass in Ladakh) and is the ultimate insurance policy for the country’s food supply, offering options for future generations to overcome the challenges of climate change and population growth.
Built jointly by the Defence Institute of High Altitude Research (DIHAR) and the National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources (NBPGR) in 2010 under the aegis of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), this permafrost seed bank is the second largest in the world.
It stores over 5,000 seed accessions (one accession consists of a set of seeds of a particular species collected from different geographical and demographic locations). These seeds — apricots, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, radish, tomatoes, barley, rice wheat, etc — have been prioritised for qualities such yield or resistance to temperature, pests or humidity.
Interestingly, the idea for a high altitude seed vault in Ladakh emerged after a mysterious locust invasion devastated the barley crop in the region!
As for why Chang La, the high-altitude mountain pass remains shrouded in snow for about nine months a year and there is little chance of ice-melt damaging the vault. The fact that its well above the sea level and tectonically stable ensures that its protected from ocean flooding, even in the worst case scenarios.
Also, Chang La’s natural permafrost conditions — 20% relative humidity and temperatures below -18 degrees Celsius (except in May and June) — offer an affordable and energy-efficient alternative to cryopreservation (the freezing of seeds to -196 degrees Celsius using liquid nitrogen).
The seeds are sealed in custom-made three-ply foil packages, placed inside black boxes and stored on shelves inside the stone-and-wood panelled building. The low temperature and moisture levels (artificially maintained inside the vault and naturally outside) ensure low metabolic activity, keeping the seeds viable for long periods of time.
As per data mentioned in a DIHAR bulletin, if kept undisturbed at this temperature and humidity, the expected longevity of seeds of onion is about 413 years, of rice is 1100 years, of wheat is 1600 years, of barley is 2000 years and of pea is a mind-boggling 9000 years.
This essentially means that a pea seed locked in the facility in 2018 can be taken out and successfully planted in the year 11018!
India’s first Black Box for Svalbard Seed Vault contains pea seeds and carried the message – ‘For the well-being of one and all on the planet earth’.
Presently, the only other facility in India for long-term storage of seeds is the one set up by Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) New Delhi but it generates an enormous electricity bill thanks to the energy demands of cryopreservation.
Furthermore, there is no village within a periphery of 30 km from the pass, thanks to low oxygen and bone-chilling temperatures in the winters. However, the Leh airport lies 75 km away. Thus, it is a remote location that is nevertheless accessible to both Indian scientist and the armed forces.
Interestingly, the Chang La seed vault’s sealed ‘black box’ design prevents disputes over intellectual property rights. According to this arrangement, the vault does not claim ownership over the deposited samples. Thus, the ownership remains with the depositor, who has the sole right of access to the respective samples in the seed vault.
A box containing 25 accessions of Pigeon Pea marked India’s first-ever seed deposit to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.
With the aim of rivalling the Svalbard Seed Vault, India has made storing of viable seeds at Chang La free of cost for all government departments and research organisations. It also plans to open the facility to the international scientific community but for that, it will have to install a high-tech cooling system for 15-20 days when the temperature at the mountain pass peaks to -4 degrees.
So even if something happens at Svalbard, India will have a final back up at Chang La — a set of carefully preserved seeds that can be restored, cultivated and sown to feed its citizens.

Ever thought why me?
Read my story and there is a high probability that you won’t feel like that EVER!
(Lot of plot twists)
2014 was a big year for me. I had appeared for the 10th standard board exams and as I was expecting it to be, the results were great.
Grade – A2
Percentile Rank – 97.04
Also, I was moving to Mumbai and I was very excited about it. I wanted to be a doctor and had got myself enrolled at Aakash.
Juin 16, 2014 -
I started studying at Aakash Institute with full devotion.
The students here were so intelligent that my 10th standard grades didn’t matter and I developed a complex. My mark sheet saw an exponential decrease in marks both in Aakash and junior college.
I still didn’t give up. I didn’t join any committee in the college neither did I play any sport during that time. Studying was my only priority. Soon, my grades increased and so did my motivation.
Time passed by and soon 12th standard boards arrived. As I was told by my professors that I only needed to score 60% marks in boards which was the cut-off criteria I had prepared like wise.
I gave the boards and again shifted my focus back to Medical entrances.
The plot twist –
“Since I was born outside Maharashtra and completed my secondary education outside Maharashtra, I was ineligible for the MH-CET exam which was the entrance exam to study medicine in Maharashtra apart from the AIPMT which spared me with only 15% chance of studying here.”
“Since I completed my Higher Secondary from Maharashtra, I was ineligible to appear for the GUJCET exam which was the entrance exam to study medicine in Gujarat. Again, I was left with 15% chance to study medicine from the Gujarat state colleges.”
It was the month of April (The exams are conducted in May) when I came to know about this and I went numb.
I then wrote a letter to the Education ministers of the respective states and even tweeted about this to the Education minister of Maharashtra Mr. Vinod Tawde but I guess no one saw my tweet or even if they saw it they didn’t bother helping me as helping just an individual wouldn’t do any political profit to them!
I was left with just AIPMT and MGIMS. I started preparing hard. My parents would come into my room and ask me to sleep. I had cut myself off from the world and also stared reading Quora for getting tips to clear the exams.
Avril 14, 2016 -
I appeared for MGIMS entrance exam. Attempted all 180 questions and all 7 essay type questions though only 5 were compulsory. I was sure of being in Top -10 and getting a seat in that college and finally was relaxed after so long. Since I didn’t want to take a chance, I kept on studying hard for AIPMT.
Avril 27, 2016 -
My 18th birthday.
I spent the entire day studying like a mad man so that I could score 510+ marks in AIPMT and when I slept, I wished some miracle could happen. And It did!
Avril 28, 2016 -
3 days to AIPMT.
I woke up the news of all the State common entrance tests cancelled and instead only one common test for the whole country – NEET.
I was so happy but it stuck me later that all the other entrance examinations were cancelled too and those which were conducted were asked not to declare results.
I was screwed. Remember MGIMS?
I still managed to score 440 but I thought that the score wasn’t enough and I registered for the NEET-2 examination. A wrong decision!
I messed up the exam scoring even less and had to drop a year.
No one scolded me. Not a single word.
Instead, my parents said that even though I had 15% chance of getting in, I gave my 100%.
September 2016 - March 2017 –
I again cut off from the world. Used to lock myself in my room for 20 hours and used to study and sometimes answered questions regarding NEET.
I used to sleep at 7 in the morning. I didn’t even cut my hair for 9 months and was in complete state of depression.
I again contacted the Education minister, Chief ministers of respective states, even tagged PMO and tried to contact Mr. Amit Gupta who is a teacher and an activist at Kota.
“My mother forcefully started sending me to play with people in the building and then I met my best friend. We then used to come down at 5 in the morning and talk. He slowly drove me out of depression to some extent.”
I was good to go again. I appeared for the exam again in 2017 and screwed up. I panicked and spoiled everything.
In AIIMS, I scored 97th percentile but couldn’t secure admission because of the cut throat competition.
My parents decided to get me into a deemed university even though the fee were in lakhs. They didn’t want me to go through all of this again. So, it was decided.
I didn’t get any college in the initial 2 rounds and there were some seats available during the mop-up round at Manipal university and Dutta Meghe college, Wardha.
We decided to Dutta Meghe as I have relatives at Wardha and Nagpur. So, we booked the tickets to Nagpur. The reporting time was 9:30 A.M. on August 31,2017 and we would reach Nagpur on August 30th.
I cut my long hair to look presentable at the college.
Plot twist –
It started raining cats and dogs in Mumbai on August 29th and soon it was a mini flood like situation. We got the news that the Airport was shut down and most of the flights were diverted or Cancelled.
So, we decided to go by Train.
Plot twist –
Nagpur - Mumbai Duronto express got derailed near Mumbai and so all trains were late by a day.
So, we couldn’t reach the college at the reporting time and I couldn’t get in to a medical college in 2017 also.
So, this is my story. There are many things which I haven’t typed considering the length of the answer. This is just 25%.
The guy at the end is me only!
“I sacrificed 3 years of my teenage, my health, my entertainment all for this dream! But I couldn’t do anything.
My teenage is going to end in April and I am sad I didn’t achieve anything in these years !”

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, it’s tough not to get freaked out when you’re alone and you hear something bump in the night or even hear a voice. The stories below will freak you out so it’s best to read these with someone. Preferably a friend and not a stranger you’ve decided to creep up behind on the street
Il y a quelques mois, la cousine de mon amie (une mère célibataire) a acheté un nouveau téléphone portable. Après une longue journée de travail, elle rentra chez elle, plaça son téléphone sur le comptoir et alla regarder la télévision. son fils est venu la voir et lui a demandé s'il pouvait jouer avec son nouveau téléphone. Elle lui a dit de ne téléphoner à personne et de ne pas plaisanter avec les SMS, et il a accepté.
Aux alentours de 11: 20, elle était assoupie, alors elle a décidé de rentrer son fils et d'aller au lit. Elle se dirigea vers sa chambre et vit qu'il n'était pas là. Elle a ensuite couru vers sa chambre pour le trouver en train de dormir sur son lit avec le téléphone à la main.
Soulagée, elle ramassa son téléphone de sa main pour l'inspecter. En la parcourant, elle n'a remarqué que des modifications mineures telles qu'un nouveau fond, une bannière, etc., mais elle a ensuite ouvert ses images enregistrées. Elle commença à effacer les photos qu’il avait prises jusqu’à ce qu’il ne reste plus qu’une nouvelle image.
Quand elle l'a vu pour la première fois, elle était incrédule. C'était son fils qui dormait sur son lit, mais la photo a été prise par quelqu'un d'autre au-dessus de lui ... et elle montrait la moitié gauche du visage d'une femme âgée.
My house was built in 1904. It is a single family home, wood frame setting on a concrete block foundation. I have been living here for about 12 years. Of all the weird things that my siblings and me have seen or heard in this house this one event is my favorite. This happened to my brother. About ten years ago my brother and his best friends had started a garage band playing mostly “Spanish rock,” alternative music but in Spanish. His friends could only get together on Sunday afternoons. They would practice into the early evening, and they would usually call it quits by 8 pm. This was the time I usually showed up and went to bed, cause I worked the graveyard shift.
This happened in late fall, so the days were getting shorter, they had just finished a long session when the decision to head to someone else house came about. My brother handed his car keys to his buddy so they could load up the equipment. Everyone had filed out of the basement, but the tricky part was that they needed to walk all the way to the back of the basement, up the back stairs, through the kitchen doorway, down the hall into the living room and out into the front porch. Everyone was outside sitting in my brother’s truck waiting for him. My brother was walking up the back stairs when he remembered that he had left his pancakes in a to go container sitting on a speaker in the basement. He made the decision to go back. Now the basement is not clean, with full sight lines, there had been partitions made, and the boiler and main heating unit are right smack in the middle. So after my brother walks back, he is about to retrieve his food container, when out of the corner of his eye he sees it.
It is a shadowy figure, right at his peripheral vision, this feeling of dread and uneasiness washed over my brother. We had been taught that if you are in the presence of a spirit or ghost and you felt a bad vibe, to say quick prayer or to cuss at it. My brother chose the latter, he basically just told it “hey fuck you, I don’t have time for this shit”.
My brother started to walk to the back of the basement and briskly up the stairs, closing doors and turning off lights as he was walking out. The last light switch is on the opposite side of the front door...luckily the door was open and the light from the street lamp was flooding the living room with its amber light. My brother said he felt something at his back, but at no point did he turn around. As he flicked the last switch the living room went dark, as did rest of the house. As he stepped out he pulled on the door closing it behind him, still holding his food container in one hand he jogged down the few porch steps. He walked towards the front gate...our house resides far from the main street, essentially having a large front yard but no rear garage. As he closed the gap between himself and his friend-laden truck he kind of smiled and thought things over in his head, mad at himself for spooking out when there was no reason.
He climbed into the drivers side of the truck, putting on his seat belt and getting ready to pull out of the parking spot directly in front of the house, when one of his friends asked “ Hey wait what about your brother, isn’t he coming with us?” My brother answered, “What do you mean? He went to work early tonight, he is already gone, do you see his car anywhere?”
The next question they asked “So then who was walking behind you when you were leaving the house? “
One night, when I was maybe 10-12, I had trouble falling asleep. My bedroom was the entire top floor of our house with my bed and such being on the left side and storage closets and a play area being on the right. I was lying in bed when I heard a noise from the other side of the room and see a rocking horse begin to rock. It was sitting just outside one of the storage closet doors. It proceeded to rock its way halfway across the room and stopped dead under the ceiling light. At this point I was freaking out and just buried my head under my blankets and never peeked out again until morning.
It was all confirmed to not be a dream as the rocking horse was still in the middle of my room when I woke up. Furthermore, I got a stern reprimand from my parents for being up out of bed playing with my toys well past my bedtime. Their bedroom was directly below the storage closet/play area and had heard the creaking of the rocking horse shuffling across the room.
