Day 5 : I LIVE IN INDIA/BHARAT... YOU??


Yes. Now don't start, "We all do!!" No. There is a majority of our population who still wants to live in 'HINDUstan'. Well, that's how my country is called in Hindi. If that is all there is to it, then I'd love to call it that too. After all, I too love and believe in 'Saare Jahan Se Achcha'. But, clearly that's not the case we have right now. Every time something fishy comes out with reference to a leader of a certain religion (let's say the majority) the top leaders of this country shamelessly come out in their defense just for the reason that they 'do' belong to that religion. Or may be because they are the "OPPOSITION"!! I mean how would anyone want to be called an "OPPOSITION" in their own country, in their own political system!! Whom or what are they opposing?? Its for the growth of the very same nation that they work for, right?? Or is that what they just claim?? Its like telling Daddy, "Welcome Dad!! Feel at home!! Turn on the AC, watch some TV, have a drink, eat good and sleep well!! :)" when he comes back home from work to "his" own house!! Damn!! Opposition?? Seriously(!!), justify it, can you??

The ATS provides evidence saying someone is involved in a terrorist activity... but NO. Someone still finds the necessity to bail them out of the crisis they've gotten into. Ha!! Did we do that to all the people against whom evidence was provided and branded them as radical/anti-socials or whatever.

60 years of Independence, incredible growth, booming economy... and one Godhra train tragedy, Gujarat/Orissa riots, series of blasts in almost all major cities, communal riots all over, reservations for the unworthy in the name of the worthy, fights for separate states... this is what we come down to!! Damn!! It reminds me of a sequence from Rang de Basanti... "is desh mein logon ko ladne ke liye sirf ek bahaana chaahiye" Maa ki!!

I'd like to be the top guy in our political system just to throw abuses at people and let them know that any of it would not make the least bit of a difference to their lives. That we need to take things more light-hearted. That we need to work hard, day-in and day-out to get ourselves to the top. Obesity is a way of life here!! Come on, there are people who are as intelligent as us and working twice hard as we do!! Are we still left with a chance??

P.S. So what do we do about all this?? I'll come up with another one... Until then, see you when I see you... :)

interesting read pk ..but tell me if we can do something beside raising our voices ;)

dolphin said...

voices heard, views exchanged. what are you going to do about this? dunno if we'll live in HINDUstan, the shabby secular-communal talk never ends

Pranav Kumar V said...

@Phoenix : Exactly!! I was thinking what else could they be called and realized that there is already a term - Non-ruling party!! Plain and simple!! Saalon ko sab kuch masaledar chahiye(!!)

@Divz : Are yaar, I don't even want to raise my voice!! Make me last person on earth, devoid if all privileges and I STILL wouldn't protest God!! :P
You'll know in the next post, what is that we CAN/SHOULD do... :)

HInduism..

well, I support BJP for the things they did for the development of infrastructure in the country in BAjpayi's reign.. but wat they have been doin in the name of religion.. mean burning down others in the name they aint Hindu.. i know it is mutually applicable to all those religious politicians who in the name of religion manipulate their political carrers, but the janta who listens to the non sense n follow them like sheep is disgusting.. n this sadhvi case is real ridiculous. HIndu sadhvi aspiring to become Osama bin laden!!

I am a secular person though!!

nice written post dude!!

@Jimmy : "ji"?? dude, this makes me want to go out on a jog with you!! :P
Even if that were out of respect... nahiiiii!!! I'd prefer PK. Just PK. That's me... :)

@Richa : I'm one step ahead of you... atheist. But secular is good too!! Secular is what we were supposed to be (at least), that's what they taught me in school!!
