I am so angry today , I usually reach work at 9am and for the first 10 minutes or so I read the Times of India newspaper online. One of the articles made me very angry.. I learned that the President of India, was in London to recieve the Baton for the commonwealth games… WTF…
Why do we have this in our nature still to think its so distinguised and honour to meet the queen. ?
Why do we still feel so inferior to the white skin ?
Why are we under such a awe of White people ?
I am not racist or anything, but it just makes me mad.. We ARE HUMANS .. EQUAL TO ANY AND ALL… Still the coments made by some of the leaders , sportmen saying its a honour blah blah to be in London to meet the Queen.
The Queen who is nothing but a parasite on its own people in the country, I mean she lives off the tax payers money .. WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT MEETING HER.. and that too a President of a Country which suffered hundreds of atrocities from the same very hands who we are trying to impress all the time.
I am fuming now at the very thought of Kapil Dev our Star Icon cricketer, I respected him he was/is my hero , But comments like this. I dont think any other coutry would send there PRESIDENT to get the Baton.
There is a Blog on the site written by Mr Tarun Vijay, which has the following lines
“We are a nation that produced a large number of rai bahadurs and sirs and rao sahebs while ‘crazy deewane’ were becoming Bhagat Singhs and Rajgurus and Sukhdevs. There were a large section of our Indians who thought it prudent to keep a silence on Jalianwala Bagh, honour the butcher Dyer even after the gruesome incident. It’s another matter that we had those Casablancas too who preferred gallows to knighthood.
Pratibha Patil and Kapil Devs have joined the ranks of those who have no sense of history, leave aside a sense of pride in the sacrifices of revolutionaries who fought the British. We are the world’s greatest living democracy, much larger and with a better civilisational background and track record of humanity than the British. Why should a head of a democracy present herself before a queen, a symbol of a decaying, old tradition, which has lost all relevance to the contemporary values of civil society? Shouldn’t they be raising questions that why the lady occupying Buckingham Palace must remain the head of the Commonwealth? The most logical and contextually correct thing would be to have a head of a democratic sovereign as its chief and not a titular icon of a royalty that stinks with the blood of our revolutionaries and whose wealth is built on the loot of India?
Pratibha Patil hasn’t found time to visit Hussainiwala , the memorial to Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev. Or the Jalianwala Bagh. London seems to be more inviting to her. What a shame that India should send a large contingent of sportsmen along with her. “
It was good to read the blog , there are still people out there who think like me.
I am really angry Wish i could do something about it.
