Happy new year to you everyone and everyone around you..
May all your wishes come true in the new year. All that you have ever wished for..
God bless you all..
I have not posted for a long time , in-spite of it all being a holiday season I been so busy with everything, yet it feels i have not accomplished anything, I must have driven more than a few thousand miles and flown at least half a dozen times for something or the other, I bet the lady at the check-in desk for emirates probably recognize my face by now at the airport.
Thankfully I have a day off today so I thought I will post, something that I have observed even though I worked at the airport for a decade it did not hit me till now I guess I am a slow observer or learner I should say ..
You know we have a duty-free at almost all the airports which although sounds like a bargain but I have my doubts I am sure the duty-free is not that cheap as we think it is, anyway it’s not the prices I want to discuss.. Right so you buy some items and go to the check out, where the smiling lady at the till asks for your BOARDING PASS…
I mean you have to prove that you are flying on an aeroplane even though you are in the airport..
NOW why would they ask for the boarding pass are they trying to figure out that we should not be in that place, or have we just barged in to the duty-free shop.
Are they suggesting that I got up early morning at a ridiculous time to make it to the airport , parked my car at the car park at ridiculous high price , stood in the queue to check in my luggage , then walked up the escalators through the airport security (forgot the shuttle bus ride from the car park to the airport) 🙂 .. I mean the airport is supposedly the most security conscious place, after getting myself imaged in the new human camera, and then getting patted up and down by the security staff just because my bracelet set the metal detector off.. do the duty-free people still think that I just might have got into the shop without the BOARDING PASS.
December is here, Festive season’s , the year coming to an end, I love December though because of all the festivities, and also one of my favorite person has their birthday this month (although I am not their favorite 🙂 ) .. So I would like to wish them a very happy birthday a couple of days late I know.. but then that’s me a Late Latif always 🙂
So whats the plan for Christmas everyone two weeks left .. Have a great month everyone …
So this demonetization process is going on, The funny things is as always the so-called nationalists and people Who love the country.. Especially those who have been crying out loud their love for the nation have started crying out loud again.
As always the APATHY of the nation starts, our nation has always been unlucky due to the leaders we have chosen, ever since independence there has been NO LEADER who is actually interested in the goodness of the nation, their own personal interests were a priority be it Nehru-Gandhi or any other leader. Which is such a shame that our nation has been taken over by the DIRTY politics.
Anyway I did not want to put this post on these dirty politicians , I wanted to talk about the PEOPLE of the nation who in a vast number are still in love with the country, BUT what makes me angry is that we the people of the nation are still not one.
Since this demonetizationhas started So many stupid messages , videos have been making the rounds, what FILTH is being distributed videos where Prime Minister Modi is being abused all over, Videos talking of national pride.. IS THIS PRIDE where we are openly abusing a chosen Prime Minister.
I hear a lot of LEADERS and People talking how a Common man is in a problem, how they are having to face so many problems.. WELL my question to these Samaritans who are sending all these whatsapp messages, emails and what not..
“HELLO”… instead of sending messages and wasting time, WHY don’t you get up your arse and do something about it.. If you think old people are being made to stand in a Queue .. Then why don’t you pick up a JUG of water and a glass and go and give some Water to this OLD MAN.
What is Funny is that even NRI’s who are sitting so far away from the nation and are undr no pressure or PAIN to stand in the QUEUE are circulating such message, LET ME ASK YOU PEOPLE are you afraid that next time when you go back to the nation you wont be able to bribe your way, or are you afraid that the famous JUGAAD wont work. You idiots stand in a queue for hours here abroad , SO WHY CANT YOU STAND IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY.
And to the Rest of the people what is YOUR PROBLEM with this demonetization, Have you NOT worked hard to Earn that Money.. Have you used unlawful ways to earn that money, NO ONE is questioning you if you have worked hard and earned the money through proper channels.
Instead of wasting time why don’t you do something, why dont you work harder, In Punjab the SIKH organisations have been distributing Langar to those who have been standing in the QUEUE for hours to get their Money exchanged, HAS ANYONE who is harping on and on about the problems of the people gone and helped a SINGLE person.
In this WHOLE episode has anyone taken a second to think of that SOLDIER who is standing at the border, ready to give his life for you all what is going in his mind now, thinking that his wife-parents-or other family members are going through all this turmoil trying to exchange their money.. What if HE LEAVES his POST and comes home..
Yet IDIOTS and MORONS are making stupid videos wasting TIME and MONEY in bringing more disharmony in the nation, Why don’t you people get up and just go and help the families of the soldiers.
If you can’t see the issues being faced by the people DO SOMETHING, I have been blessed by a group of people who are very active in the region of Punjab helping all the needy, recently we bought a truckFull of Grain and distributed among people who are having a problem with money, It’s Not we are rich and bought.. All we did was Pool in some money, bought and then Went around asking if someone wanted to buy it off us, WE have then written the names of the people who did not have the Money and given them stuff, So when they do have the Money they will come and Give it back.
This way no one is out-of-pocket, some of the people have actually returned money back in the current denomination.
Almost every Religious place is getting into Business, Why don’t these religious places Open their Trunks full of Legal denomination and exchange it for the people, Why don’t they give the money to the local shopkeepers etc, So these shopkeepers can give food etc to those who don’t have the legal tender or even to the POOR, who are the worst hit with this demonetization.
No one will do anything but instead make idiotic videos.. Now that the demonetization is in process it can’t be Stopped.. so STOP this nonsense and help the other country men.
YES there could have been more thought put in this , I already wrote in the previous post about it , but that does not mean I start writing post after post how it is effecting , how the poor are suffering YES THEY ARE .. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT..
Write posts sitting in your posh rooms, AC rooms, Make whatsapp VIDEOS, messages and flood the market, ABUSE the PM of the nation, Take Political MILEAGE.. for GOD SAKE and for once in your life spend just 5 Minutes for the Good of the nation..
IF Each citizen spent just 5 minutes for the Good of the nation each day IMAGINE how many hours it will be EACH day. We don’t have that many hours or minutes in the DAY to even think of it .. JUST IMAGINE.. do something for god sake .. instead of crying at every little bit.
PS:- Please dont start to Comment, oh how I did a good thing etc etc.. THE POST IS NOT TO GET PRAISE OR ANYTHING OF THAT SORT. this is purly against the Idiots in our nation, who themselves wont ever do anything for the good , but if anyone does anything they will start to shout hoarse.
Especially the POLITICAL LEADERS….
The recent upheaval that is going on in our nation is getting on everyone’s nerves , I guess with the amount of messages I keep getting.
I do think this idea of stopping the use of Rs.500 and 1000 note is very good as it will definitely stop the use of black money and the fake notes that have been flooded in our nation, Will it make any change I don’t know.
Media is reporting things , I am trying to make head or trail of it all but can’t understand one little thing , there are queues in front of banks where people are standing for hours and hours to get the notes changed, BUT In all the reports I have not seen a SINGLE celebrity or a big business man, are we saying they have NO notes to exchange.
Whatsapp is a good tool , I had a message come to me a couple of days before PM Modi announced the change, that message has a picture of the New Rs.2000 note .. how is that possible, where was that pic clicked or who clicked it, does that mean the notes were in circulation prior to the announcement.
What about NRI’s I have a few notes where do I go and get them exchanged, I been talked to my mom , she has visited our local bank three times in the last two days with the same notice on the door of the bank, NO CURRENCY.
I also have a question regarding the security that keeps getting mentioned on the new notes, they are so secure, connected to GPS or Satellite.. that is fair enough but HOW does that prevent the use of FAKE notes, If I have a Fake Rs. 2000 Note how do i know, or when I use it at a shop etc. How will they know, it is Fake.
In another news I read that Congress Mp’s or MLA’s in Punjab have resigned in protest over some issue, WELL we are going to have elections in 2017, 3 months away HOW does it matter if they resigned now.
The Reason why i say this is that in the pub the other day some obviously congress allies were going on and on about how their ministers have resigned , for the good of the state , how this was all selfless.. SELFLESS I say when has a politician done anything for selfless reasons.
Its like this Currency notes all the big wigs have got their accounts sorted, I doubt if ANY of the big wigs will be questioned by Income tax people or brought to justice but MAYBE just maybe some common people might who may have gotten their money through wrong means but the amount they have does not even effect a .000000000000000001% of the actual problem.
What do you think people is this really going to help, How is this going to bring the Black money sitting in Swiss banks back into India.
Would it not mean that instead of paying 500 or 1000 as bribe to get some things dones, especially in a Govt. Office (believe me the hassel one has to go through, I found 2 years ago a half hour job took , 3 WEEKS because I did not pay the correct person when i should have, which resulted in me spending more money in changing my flight tickets, taking more time off from my work WITHOUT PAY.. so it was more loss , easier to pay the 500 🙂 ).. We will have to pay Rs.2000. Now…
In my simple brain there are a few steps that can be taken to sort this issue, make all transactions electronic only especially if they are lets say higher than 20K or 50K.
Make sure every individual declares their Property, if any property is not declared assign it to the STATE.
