Sweet Dreams 

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep.

Away from the window, the truth,

The love, the faith, the people.

Watch those sheep jumping, pumping, hurtling rhythmically to the end of the screen and back again.

Count them so you forget the past,

The tormentors, the dictators,

The freedom seekers, the truth lovers.

Let our reality be the one you live,

Let our truth be all you see.

Sleep my baby.

Sweet dreams!

Champ – Arvind Kejriwal

Does his sense of humor match mine? Does his demeanor match mine? I don’t know and I’ll never know ‘coz I don’t want to know. Thing is, he has become so candid just like me. Yes I’m talking about Arvind Kejriwal and yes, I’m comparing him with me. Frankly for the first time I feel like I have the power to compare myself with him. He wants to give a lot of power to a common man and that in my opinion is the crux of both his party’s so-called “ideology” and mine too.

He is trying to give people of the  largest democracy in the world something they have stopped dreaming about. We the people have become such slaves to this system that going against it isn’t even thought of. For people as kinky as I am, I think I should take it more positively. But I don’t for righteousness comes before anything to me. Be right for everyone by being right for yourself. Think of everyone’s interests before just the thing thats laid down by this world. It brings harmony to the surroundings but never be wrong to anyone.

I just watched Arvind Kejriwal interviewed  and scrutinized by one of the cruelest journalists in India – Barkha Dutt. She is not a Arnab Goswami. Her firmness never strays even when she goes soft. Thats the art of journalism I guess. She is a champ at journalism and Arvind Kejriwal – a Champ at kills.

I said, he is candid and I think I know where this comes from. It comes from an extravagant understanding of the country’s bull-shit and corrupt politics and that he knows exactly what they’ll thrown at him next – his competitors. That’s the precise reason why he’s never at sea against any question even when he is trying to be fair to everyone. He is repugnant to all his opposition only for his forthrightness. He has pinpointed the problems that the system faces.

Whatever he does, it’s good or so it seems. And the true motive of his party can only come to the fore when he has stayed his course and so has his party. He says his party may be a mix of conflicting opinions but they joined each other to get a single goal – clean and completely uncorrupt politics.

And I totally back him for it. And if need be – his party too!

Arvind Kejriwal announces anti-corruption helpline

 

Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal announces anti-corruption helpline | NDTV.com.

I’m just loving this. The way this man Arvind Kejriwal is chasing asses of the wrong doers in the government is absolutely awesome and really commendable. It’s been nearly 10 days since Aam Aadmi Party has taken control of the nations capital and fires already burning under the mis-conductors, the corrupts, the lazies! First the electricity discoms, then the water department and then suspending people who were caught receiving bribes. Then he launches the bribery helpline and says,”This announcement makes every citizen of Delhi an anti-corrupt inspector. The purpose is to create fear in the minds of every corrupt individual”.

Bravo!!! But how long will it last, this zeal for correctness, the heart to get everyone treated fairly under the judicial system? I heard him for the first time today and became an instant fan. Him and his compatriots look like they will walk out in open and challenge anyone who criticizes their intentions which by the way are for people and people only. Way to go!

The discoms in Delhi are running for cover – something Sheila Dikshit couldn’t get done in last 4 years. If this continues, this party has a huge future but will it survive the eye of the opposition for very long – remains to be seen!

When the Devils Danced and Fairies Cried

2013 – An year of the unforgettables.

As it comes to an end and I try to reminisce the rights and the wrongs, the successes and failures, the joys and sorrows, the heartaches and some not, the pains and pleasures – I stand ready to be emptied and filled again, like clay ready to mold, like water waiting to be filled in a jar.

Its been that kind of year. I am so depressingly filled with negative feelings that I wish I can be recreated, from scratch – born again to live free and then die again with no regrets. They are bursting to come out. Right people need to know but how will it reflect upon me? Will I stand vindicated? My experience says – No.

So, forget? I Can’t. Tried that too many times and lost.

So, do what? Quit.  I should seek my own space. But that once I’m done reminiscing this year.

The biggest event of this year for me was my siblings wedding, bringing a new member to our family, with cheers all around. He is all grown up now. Handles himself and his wife very astutely. Mom and Dad are mighty proud of him and so am I.

That being said, that has been the only happy event of the year. Rest has been intensely gloomy. The suffering that fate has unleashed upon my home has admonished us to think beyond the realm of possibility. We are broken from inside. She – more so. And yet my love for life stands so much more invigorated again, only the trigger remains unclear. I could start with a thousand things, but then there could be none too.

I turned 30 this year and life has become a parody of suffering, learning, rising, fighting and living. Lemme call this song “My Life”.

I don’t have a long time to live and I don’t wish to live long. I just want to have bombs of happiness dropped on me every 4 months or so to erase the pain inside or at least partly subside it.

Sachin “The God” Tendulkar retired – the second saddest event of the year. His farewell speech will always stay with me in my heart and the hearts of his billion other followers and so will his legacy. No cricketer can and will ever touch his greatness, his humility and passion for his game.

India finally now has had its hands on all the 3 ICC (International Cricket Council) Trophies – The Champions Trophy, The ICC World Cup and The ICC T20 World Cup – the only team to have done so till date. We are proud of you boys – keep going!

The people of Delhi finally came into their own this year with Aam Aadmi Party doing what no other party could do in the last 15 years of corruption – dislodge Congress. Too many scams, rising prices, rapes, molestations have finally forced people to look into a direction that aims to guide Delhi towards mending what has broken completely – trust on government. Lets hope things change quickly and for good and Delhi at least becomes a safe haven for women.

Emergence of Narendra Modi as the colossal giant is the single greatest challenge Congress will face with its reputation also taking a severe dent after the loss in the state elections this year.

I’m neutral but I want change. The Center requires someone who delivers on his promises without hurting peoples pockets. Prices are out of control. Living has become expensive and the way prices of the some of the most basic amenities spirals out of control is intolerable. Potatoes, tomatoes, onions, sugar. Rice, wheat get expensive with not enough storage to shelter the produce. Petrol price seems to have stabilized but I hope other energy products become cheap and available for public. I’m least happy with the situation for women in the nations capital. Nothing is being done to shelter the harmed and stop the harm itself.

Uttarakhand and Muzaffarnagar were two major incidents of the year that have led to massive life and property damages.  Clearly no one can be blamed for the former, for it was the natures retaliation to damage that we inflict upon it. But the other, clashes between castes and the other sects of Indian society, should have been averted. Taking advantage of peoples sentiments towards their religion is the worst thing we can do and we do it without any qualms. In this particular case, people are still dying without even a clear reason for the clashes. Stop it!

Lets make this new year to change our mindset for the better. Lets be happy, love each other, live our lives to the full and learn to take responsibility for your actions. We are the people who drive this nation. Keep it clean. Recycle. Try and curb pollution. Lets make this nation even more beautiful.

Independence

Independence.

Independence from the British empire 67 years ago – a nation is born. Powers traded. 90 years of freedom fighting, people killed – all to conquer a land, that had more gold than all worlds combined.

Independence – to us it stands for countless lives spent to attain it.

It’s been 67 years and we are yet to move on. We still linger in the debts of the heavy past that somehow seems to still drive our nation to the wild. Is this in our nature to live in the past? We keep condemning what happened then and we base our relationships and opinions and generate hatred for the people who frankly are suffering way more than most of us can imagine. Them and us – we are scared. People who want simple lives and wish to attain basic goals either get killed or live in persistent fear of getting killed in one or the other terrorist attacks. Terrorists – who are fuelled by hatred towards people across the border.

What have we turned our independence into? Is it a grant we have taken? Is the only meaning of independence – literal? Doesn’t it define our responsibility towards the people who govern our country by forming a government and who form the public? Why is hatred such an important part of what we do and does it make sense to base it on a forgettable past? We need to learn. Learn to take care of each other not as brothers or sisters but as humans. It’s the deepest relation. We shouldn’t need anything more.

Yet we kill and praise killing. I salute all those who spend their lives saving the public of their respective countries. From their perspective, it’s what they should do else they’ll be killed as well.

After 67 years of independence, shouldn’t we move forward from amongst the shadows of our past and into a brighter future for our future generations to see our country as worth living. Nothing would make me prouder to see our youngsters say – we have loved our country for what it has been but we are here to move it forward with a stronger root and greener branches.

Please bring peace to each other. Give yourself a break from treating each other like shit. Killing does nothing but bring us into the class of several others who don’t value human lives.

Whatever the measures, get it done with once and for all. We have wasted enough resources and blood for petty issues that are used for political mileage over and over again. Is this what our future will be all about?

We need to change before it’s too late!!!

Mumbai attack gunman Qasab executed

Well I have to write something about this one for sure. A man in conjunction with another enters Indian soil from Pakistan territory and enters a train station killing 52 people and dares to roam around freely on  the station – a cold hearted bastard! Thank God India captured him and treated him as a souvenir of the aftermath and made him remember his day for another 5 years before he was hanged today. And what swiftness and quickness of thought that even before the Indian media woke to the news, the hanging had been done and body cremated. I wonder why even his body is being harbored on our soil. He should be thrown in the sea wrapped in pig skin. This man garnered so much international hatred that even his next seven avatars as per the Hindu beliefs will rot in hell. Well at least we now can sleep in peace knowing that this bastard will not eat up any more of Indian tax payers money. Not only did he kill so many people but he also took up one of the most important positions in the Indian political systems. A death well managed I’d say. Congrats Indian government! Well done!

Chowmein to replace Viagra in pharma shops across India!

Can you just beat this? A fool in Haryana yesterday declared that consuming “Chowmein” leads men to raping! I mean how big a bull-shit is that???!!! The inflated egos that these guys possess, leads them to comment like this ‘coz they just can’t bear the responsibility of their actions of utter shame that they commit against women who not only brought their shameless souls on this poor earth, but also bread them, saved them from harm and now they think they are entitled to commit heinous crimes against the same women. All of this makes me so sad that we live in a country where we consider Earth and the soil of our country as our Mother. “Bharat Mata ki Jai” is a slogan that we commonly use when we are protesting or fighting a war. And just look at the respect that’s given to the females in our country. Just sad is the word. I mean I’m sorry to be sharing this country with them fools.

And what has the poor old “Chowmein” done to deserve this disrespect. I never knew that it had some aphrodisiac properties. I have eaten it a thousand times and I never faced an issue of an increased libido after that? Have we gone nuts to be even claiming this crap in our country? Where has all the science gone and has all logic completely deserted us? These are the unlearned fools who can come out and say something like this. This is what ill-education can do. This is what we fill our children with when they are raised in our family. This is what we show them when we deal with the women in our families that women are to be oppressed. They are mere objects of sexual use and to cook food for men, to keep their houses clean, to massage the legs of their men who do nothing except sit in a panchayat all day doing nothing but making a mockery of our constitution that so clearly declares that all living men and women are equal. They deserve the same things. They deserve the same food, the same respect, the same place in our society as is claimed by so called “Men”.

Can the world keep its promises on schools?

Guess what! India is ahead in atleast one of the fields where rest of the world lags – child education! A mammoth 20% increase in the number of child enrollments in primary education! Brilliant head-start! African countries are being held up the most, probably due to infrastructure limitations but then there should have been South Africa that should have led the revolution but they are one of the poorest performers – I’m amazed at the figures. The figures themselves reveal a sad story even with so much progress. A mere 20% progress in 10 years? Are we in stone age or just loathed in indulgence with no moral responsibility towards the backward classes. Everyone should have done their bit. Children are the foundation of any nation and ignoring their education will lead developing nations like India to go backwards rather than forward. Children establish the identity of the nation amongst the world. We should care for them. Just today Supreme Court released a notice saying every working child should be enrolled in a primary school. A head start I must say!

Biswas: Some good reads for the week

BBC News – Biswas: Some good reads for the week.

This article is about India and the past week. India is being squeezed. Both politically and economically. Both inside and outside. It’s heart rendering the way Indians are being made to pay more for what could be cheap. Currency is bouncing back after a big time stutter against the dollar. The market is going up. But where we are lacking is an understanding of why Indian law makers appear to be so lax to create reforms. Basic necessities are getting out of hand and as I speak, the writer of this blog is reaching the day one-by-one where he will soon be declared below-poverty-line. Not that India is struggling by itself, it is being made to struggle by politicians, filthy politicians who for their own benefits are stopping reforms that’ll stop their own Swiss bank accounts from filling up with dollars. I do not recall even a single reform measure that has been given a go-ahead in the Parliament straight up till date unless there is only one party sitting in the office. Every one has a voice and they fight and debate and create ruckus of all kinds against anything that takes their own money away. Corruption anyone? Yes, big time.

The electricity bill last month drilled a huge hole in everyone’s pocket in Delhi. The day when the bills were distributed, everyone in my street had their hands on their heads wondering of their other bills and the means with which they would pay them. Hope this intervention from Arvind Kejriwal helps us.

Well that’s a relief. A long awaited one. The margins by which the prices had gone up, it seemed petrol vehicles may be on their way down. But this seems to be reviving my hope of one day buying my own car and afford the fuel as well.
