The way it should be

Change; We don't need!

November 12, 2013
”Change alone is eternal, perpetual and immortal”, Arthur Schopenhauer
Okay, let me admit, I don’t know how that quote relates to the following article, but once I was said, an effective article should start with a quote, so, I gave it a try. Though he (Arthur) was dramatic, what he said was true. Change alone is constant. Things always change, be it one’s girl friend or a planetary movement, not necessarily in an elliptical way. Adopt or perish are the only options to chose if any changes occur. Philosophy aside, here I want to talk about the change/transition that our nation is undergoing.
Our general elections are coming up; Indian cricket team has been ranked No.1 for quite a long time, above all Sachin, the master, is waving goodbye to cricket along with one billion aching hearts. I hope things change with our politics too. I’m a typical Indian, I love cricket, I watch movies, I hate politics and I’m doing a govt job, ironically, I hate it. I heard someone saying, humans and frogs are two species on the earth that will get accustomed to any change, and Indians lead that race. A change can only create ripple among Indians and we don’t care about ripples as long as no Tsunami hits us. But after frequent visits, even tsunamis will be treated as ripples. Don’t agree? Let me explain, When Bofors scandal saw day light, it shook India like a tsunami, PM had to step down. When 2G spectrum scandal surfaced, it hit us as a cyclone, but the same tsunami turned into a ripple for coal-gate scam. Remember? Humans get accustomed to change.
The change that is going to hit us (only time can answer whether it is a ripple or a tsunami) is General elections. No matter who will be crowned at Delhi, we are going to witness some change, be it 44 year most eligible bachelor aka youth icon aka Rahul Gandhi or daring aka controversial aka Narendra Modi aka NaMo. Rahul Gandhi can mourn over his grandmother’s assassination on dais while tens of small scale blasts can happen around Modi’s meet place. Ever wonder why our stock markets are hovering around all-time highs while our fundamentals are cracked. Do you have any idea? Neither do I. But, according to floating rumours in D-Street, investors are optimistic about Modi’s win in the upcoming general elections. But real reasons are ultra complicated which I don’t want to discuss here.
 Rupee is falling, GDP is shrinking, inflation is rising and it is happening; the change. I used to travel on the same route to college for six long years; it was a concrete road when I first travelled then it became NH when I travelled last. The poor people in India were 28 Cr when I understood the term poverty, now that figure stands around 40 Cr. So, things change. The only thing that unchanged is Ahluwalia’s full meals cost, he can still have it at Rs. 15. Waist-to-ankle long dresses have shortened to waist-to-waist long, 3 Kg onions cost us more than Paradise’s Biryani, even MMS taking decisions like not to attend commonwealth meet in Sri Lanka. Everything changes; even MMS is not an exception.
The bottom line of the clumsy write-up is, don’t adopt the change so easily (i’m talking about bad changes, not a change in congress govt). Resist it, Fight against it, then adopt it. When you resist, when you fight, you will come to know what exactly the change is, and how to adopt it without getting hurt. Change is inevitable. Do change, but not so rapidly..
 

Naked India: India, the way it is!!

May 29, 2013

I decided to tell facts, the facts everybody knows but quite a few are ready to accept. Actually, we are living in a dream, a dream that was carefully constructed by every Indian, and nobody wants to come out of that. I feel silly when someone says ' I love India', seriously! What option does he have. Everyone has to love their country. I can understand the love when some foreigner says, i love India, but when an Indian says, no, i don't understand the logic behind that. Yeah, we have seen ...

Regionalism: A Cancer

November 4, 2012

Have you ever asked anybody this question, “Where are you from”?  Well, the answer would be the obvious one, ‘I’m from this state or from this place’; it is near to impossible to expect an answer ‘Im from India’.  Yeah, I do agree that we are not on some foreign land to give such a weird answer. But, what I was trying to convey is we are suffering more from regionalism over nationalism. North Indian people hate south Indians, south Indian people look down at East Indian people, ...

India is growing, but in what fronts!!

August 22, 2012

It is undeniable and unarguable fact that India is growing, but the question is in what fronts. Well, my point is that India is growing in the aspects it shouldn’t grow and it not where it should. Confused! Let me tell you in more detail, India is growing in terms of size of the scandals from some 5000 crores to around 2 lakh crores but it is not growing to provide basic needs to its citizens.  India is growing in terms of population in geometric progression. But India is not growing with s...

Young India!? LOL!!

August 20, 2012
Once, i asked my friend, 'what is the best way to start a presentation'. 'Start with a joke', he replied. Now coming to our topic, We have a great Prime Minister and equally great young people. Don't get offended for comparing youself with our prime minister, but it is the fact. The only difference between him and us is, we have facebook account to share our personal opinions. From childhood, i've been suffering from a doubt, 'who exactly are the youth in india'. I mean, Rahul vinci is consid...

Hooker with the heart of gold

April 12, 2012

Should prostitution be legalized? The most debated topic of current times which has attained a wide range of varied views and arguments from the law, the politicians, the sociologists, parents and the youth. Some call it degrading and immoral and some feel it’s a desperate option. Well, prostitution is not confined just to women but also men(called gigolos), but rare and service opulent class women.

Staring from the 1955 the literature of every language has depicted a prostitute as relucta...

Media, NEWS or Yellow NEWS???

July 4, 2011

I wonder if there was hardly a single morning which passed without concocting our faces in disgust after seeing the front page of a newspaper. Well, on what basis do you rate particular news? Keeping in mind its credibility or its prominence? How do you think a newspaper should be like? Just serving the protocol of providing information on what’s happening near and far or also educating the general public? When a country is trying hard to restore diversity in spite of suffering differences ...
