70 years have gone since India has become independent, since morning whatsapp has been going bezerk with all the independence day messages, various groups flooded with messages what made me laugh out and smile the most was that we follow the same ritual each year on this day and the very next day all is but forgotten.   I am just curious today what does independence  mean to everyone, 70 years almost two whole generation of citizens who were born in free India are adults and more by now… including me, those who lived through those dark days have almost gone.

People have changed, ideology has changed BUT there is one breed of people that has Not changed OUR DEAR LEADERS the so called Gandhi followers , the little change that has happened is that these leaders have become more intelligent in how to loot the nation, Same old principles.

This is going to be a SHOCK for all reading this , I am a Indian and I think we should stop celebrating the Independence day .. the whole idea of or the reason of the celebration has been lost, In my mind or in my sense we started celebrating this day because the British LEFT us or GAVE us independence , The british went because they could not see any advantage of there stay Had they wanted they could have stayed anyway that’s not the point of this article..

We started to celebrate this day because we became a independent country to be governed by us Indians THAT’S IT.. But its been 70 years of celebration no one celebrates events for ever .. Especially when now we can sit back and think DO WE REALLY DESERVE IT ALL.

The few years in the start may have been good in-spite of the wars we had to fight, for the sole reason that we had Indians ruling us and No white skin to bow down to. There have been some commendable work done by some Indians, I say some because there are only a handful who actually work for the betterment or good of the country, but we as a nation have sidelined them too , Does any one know whats happening with ANNA HAZAARE Ji, he worked so hard but the people around him took advantage , one of them became a political leader won by a huge margin YET look at that same person now A POLITICIAN, the whole ideology lost.

Where are we now..

Were we not better off when we had British rule.. The reason I say is lets compare our nation with the Likes of Germany or Japan.. world war happened which left the state of those countries completely devastated.. Look at them NOW.. Can we compare even a single thing… India was not devastated True it was poor because of the wealth taken away BUT mind you British gave our country a lot, The roads they built then are still standing , Have a look at the road in each locality – in your own locality that were built just DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, you will get the idea..

Railways was another thing given to us, Some of the narrow gauge rail tracks are still working , have a look at the condition especially in rural places, we have not been able to provide connection to those far away remote areas.

The people who gave their LIVES for the country had the right to say they love their country, How many of the people who have written big articles or commented how they love their country can actually go and give their life, HECK I don’t think I can go and die..

Yes our country is corrupt, Yes its far behind, Yes our country is dirty All this is true so time has come to STOP going GA GA over stupid things and shouting at foreigners who says India is dirty YES IT IS, I say so that does not mean I am not Indian or you love the country more than ME. Time has Come to WORK and FIX IT.. well actually the time was years back BUT never too late to start.  So what if a foreigner said India is dirty SO WHAT.. if it felt bad then maybe you should have gone and cleaned the place .. HECK I would do that I mayn’t have the guts to go and die for the country but I can go and clean the place and I have done it ..

AND FOR THE SAKE OF GOD, what irks me the MOST is the people who say how India is developing, How we are becoming a big economy THIS AND THAT blah BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH, the so called people who are living in a dream and have never ever EVER seen what is going on,  Let me give them a little example There is a little village that is next to the one that I belong to , In a Very influential district in Punjab , this district is very very influential now in the political scenario of the country, only this year they got the facility of WATER, filtered clean water.. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT after 70 years of  Independence and that too without the help from Government, We all got together the next project is to have proper drains for good sanitation.

What development is that , how is sending people to the moon or satellites going to help the person who has to walk for miles to get fresh water, GO ASK THEM.  Today being independence day why don’t you do one thing and go and ask these people how much they suffer.  We all each and everyone , people Living In or outside India, EACH ONE has to wake up and stop this FARCE.. IF we start now maybe just maybe in a decade or two we can start to celebrate the Independence day again when we again win our freedom this time from our own people, From US , FROM YOU from ME… it is still a maybe but then there is still hope…

I was reading an article where someone mentioned we should celebrate the day to pay respect to freedom fighters, Come on I say to them, Those freedom fighters did not give their life to get this day , they had different ideas, they gave their LIFE for US the new generation who shout at top of our voice when need be how proud we are to be Indians,

THE REAL CELEBRATION WOULD BE TO MAKE SURE WE BUILD THE INDIA THAT THEY HAD VISUALIZED

The likes of Sardar Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekar Azad, Rajguru ,Udham Singh (by the way did anyone know Death anniversary of Sardar Udham Singh was 31st July) and Plenty more whom history AND PEOPLE have forgotten who embraced death in their early age They were all Jewels of the country conveniently forgotten by History Manipulators , they had a dream of a GREAT NATION, of a GOOD NATION they gave the ultimate sacrifice THEIR LIFE, lets not let that sacrifice go to waste furling the national flag, singing the national anthem is not gonna achieve that, (we as a nation have even argued over the names of places in our national anthem, that is the sort of people we are 🙂  ) We have to start to WORK on making it better. We need to face the REALITY, till we do that nothing can be changed the first step to start changing or rectifying a PROBLEM is to Accept there IS A PROBLEM… if there is no problem then what are we rectifying NOTHING

If each of us takes just a couple of hours out  a week it can work wonders. The problem is we will not do anything, but the moment someone says this is wrong , that is wrong we all attack them like a swarm of bees.. What we DON’T Do is try to rectify the wrongness.

Mahatma Gandhi as we know was the best politician the world has ever had. Politics is the art of gaining what you want even when you are weak… But why call Gandhi as Mahatma I have not understood that, Because as far as I know or as history tells us neither his actions nor his character were impeccable. He did have a few skeletons in his cupboard too.

With each change in political scenario in the country the facts and slogans and Tamasha changes.. according to the will and wimp of the political parties ideology.

Some feel offended that Gandhi is blamed,  but Gandhi was not perfect, so what’s the harm in blaming Gandhi, he did make quiet a few mistakes, who doesn’t, So what’s wrong in blaming him, after all don’t we hear it that we Should be responsible for our actions.

Gandhi no doubt was a very good manipulator, a Politician par excellence.. I don’t deny that, But what I am against is giving a man so much importance when there are others who are equally deserving or MORE. So if they don’t get what they deserve then why is one man singled out for all this respect, If he said that youth like Sardar Bhagat Singh are damaging the image of the nation, then So did he.

March 23 came and went it was the 75th anniversary of the martyrdom of Shaheed Sardar Bhagat Singh. The reason I am mentioning him is that in those turbulent times.. It was HE who was as popular as Gandhi, I will say More than him, that is why the conspiracy theory that Gandhi did not do his best to save him from the gallows.

I myself feel that it has become a mockery with the way history has been changed, manipulated on what Bhagat Singh and many others did , How it helped the bringing of Independence. It is not correct to compare the paths of Bhagat Singh and Gandhi, even when the goal was same..

It is so very wrong to think that it was the Non-cooperative movement which made British  Leave India, the movement started by Gandhi. I think it was both the Revolt to take arms, the anger plus the movements of Gandhi that made the British understand that the time was ripe to vacate the Asian subcontinent for good

The likes of Sardar Bhagat Singh, Chandrasekhar Azad, Rajguru ,SukhDev,Udham Singh and Plenty more whom history has forgotten, who embraced death in their early age, they were all Jewels of OUR country conveniently forgotten by History Manipulators.

Because of political changes history has been so badly manipulated that we still think it was only the indiscipline or non-cooperation movements started by Gandhi that helped in Independence, this is religiously followed in all walks of life in India even to this day.

WE forget that Today the same Congress , and the KHADI wearing people , The so-called people who are following Gandhi principles are the worst enemies we have… and These are the very people the young fire brand freedom fighters cautioned us about..  

But we the people have not learned anything, I doubt if we will Learn too. I am sure EVEN GANDHI himself will be ashamed of the ways our politicians are behaving today, but then Gandhi himself was a Politician par excellence. 
PS:- The spelling in the title are wrong I know .. WHAT Independence!!!!

This article is not for you, or for those who have one single track mind..  All those who think our country has nothing wrong ALSO STOP READING NOW.

Yesterday it was the 26th january .. the day our nation became a Republic, I deliberately this year did not record any of the programs that I usually watch, Now for some reason watching all that makes me sad.

It reminds me of what it should be and what it is ..

I was watching the movie Rang de basanti and it starts with the lead lady who wants to make a documentary on the freedom fighters of  our nation, she goes into a meeting to get funds and the project cleared , Why i am typing this is because there was a GREAT dialogue which got my attention and which left me thinking the guy and the lady say that if she Should forget making the documentary on the revolutionaries but instead makes a documentary on GANDHI.. the exact words were “GANDHI SELLS“.. and so very true it is  that’s all that sells in our great nation ..  just GANDHI and that’s what has been selling since ages. We are so blind to even see it. I bet that was SOLD yesterday too in New Delhi.

Today was the first time in all my life for as far as I remember I did not watch any of those lies being told by our leaders all over the country, we sit and listen hoping that This time maybe JUST maybe the guy behind the microphone is probably telling the truth.  It is a shame that during all those lectures and promises none of the people are remembered, who made this dream come true , the dream of celebrating the republic day of a nation, the ones who are the GIVERS of this dream to us..  WHICH IS GOOD. I am happy they are not remembered. They don’t deserve the embarrassment of being talked about by the corrupt leaders.

The story of the revolutionaries is forgotten by us indians ,  those 23 years olds who gave their life for us ..  Who fought A EMPIRE on their own and in process gave their life happily, smiling.. Praying that they are reborn again in the same nation so they can fight again against the tyranny of the Raj. ALAS this day I again feel that the revolutionaries will be so ashamed of us all.. as they say in hindi “LANNAT HAI HAMARE PE “..  These people gave their life for us all , for us for our nation but I seriously think why did they give their life FOR WHAT …  I seriously think that if any of these guys were alive they would literally kill themselves in shame .. IS THIS WHAT THEY FOUGHT . Is this why they gave their life for US.. the UNFAITHFUL.. the USELESS US all me including

I read a lot of blogs and articles today where a few have written how people felt emotional listening to the patriotic songs  .. it is such a pity that all this JOSH and patriotism comes on the ONE day and /OR maybe on the 15th august too.. the rest of the days we don’t give a damn about anything going on.

As I am writing the scene comes where the guy comes in stopping the people jiving to the western song, having a drink dancing etc.  in the movie telling them how indian society is screwed up and has a go at one of the friends who is a muslim and the other two jump in to save their friend .. and then says JAI HIND when he leaves..  exactly JAI HIND and that is by shouting, is that all we can do say jai hind and is that all .. is our job done by just saying it.. .

As I wrote in the comments at a few blogs I seriously think we need the british to come back to rule us all yet again , We don’t deserve this freedom.  AT least when british ruled us we knew who the enemy was but this freedom this independence has brought a lot of enemies, our very own people are the enemies now.. they have raped us again and again .. every 5 years they come and we smilingly and happily stand there NAKED.. to be taken for a ride for another 5 years .. I don’t know how many years more will it need for us to wake up .. its been 65 years since the Independence.

A lot has been going on politically in our nation for the last few years now but as usual all those rays of hope have slowly gone, with everything coming up everyone is the same , each one of these Khadi wearing people (I hate to say leaders), they think wearing pure white clothes will make them pure , they forget that all that their WHITE is full of BLACKREDGREY.. all those Dark colours ..  There is not a single leader who is genuinely interested in the welfare of the nation, each one of them has a hidden agenda and the BEST thing .. the BESTEST part is that in spite of knowing it all we still worship them .. OH yes I forgot the GANDHI FACTOR.. true people .. SO true .. the dialogue that I mentioned in the start that GANDHI SELLS .. Well it does isn’t it .. the so-called Gandhian TOPI.. The Khadi the White and all that IT SELLS and sells a LOTttttttttt.

I am amazed at what educated people have to say, when I talk to them about the nation , their reaction is either a shirk of shoulders or don’t know attitude, this is a sad scenario BUT I am still ok with that maybe we can teach them but what about the people who go on and ON and Onnnnnnnn about how great our nation is, how this and that REALLY.. GIVE it a conscious thought, Give it a logical thought, Think for once in your life .

ARE WE HAPPY WITH THE NATION WE HAVE NOW ? if the answer to that is YES then I am sorry to be BLUNT that is being Hypocrite (which by the way is another trait of us people).  Are we blind can’t we see.. IS this what we promise those martyrs each year that we will make the nation good , IS this what we are fulfilling. No our nation is no more Saare jahan se acha .. and that’s what the TRUTH is BUT YES we have the capability to make it one, if only we open our eyes , its only been 65 years not too late yet .. we CAN still do it and make our nation great BUT for that WE will have to

Open our eyes.

Open our mind  …. and WORK towards it. We owe to it to those people who brought us this freedom WHO put it in a PLATE for us but we have been so arrogant that we just did not bother to hold that plate parallel to the ground , rather we turned it upside down and let it all fall to the ground.

THE REAL CELEBRATION WOULD BE TO MAKE SURE WE BUILD THE INDIA THAT THEY HAD VISUALISED

Furling the national flag, singing the national anthem is not gonna achieve that. We have to start to WORK on making it better. We need to face the REALITY, till we do that nothing can be changed the first step to start changing or rectifying a PROBLEM is to Accept there IS A PROBLEM… if there is no problem then what are we rectifying NOTHING.

Lets forget about these leaders, just ignore them,  so what if a foreigner said india is dirty SO WHAT.. if it felt bad then maybe you should have gone and cleaned the place .. HECK I would do that I may not have the guts to go and die for the country but I can go and clean the place and I have done it ..

The work on making the country a better place has to start,  If each of us take just a couple of hours out of a week it can work wonders. The problem is we will not do anything, but the moment someone says this is wrong , that is wrong we all attack them like a swarm of bees.. What we DONT Do is try to rectify the wrongness.

Lets all get together and for once, give a thumbs down to politics/politicians/leaders/khadi clad people , instead of wasting our time listening to them – following them -worshiping them,  Do something for the nation, just one thing a week, and do it with all our heart. Each one of us , thats a billion people doing one thing.. thats a BILLION things happening each week. Let bring the dream back again which is SAARE JAHAN SE ACHA .. HINDUSTAAN HAMARA .  
 

Safaroshi ki tamanna ab hamare dil main hai– dekhna hai zor kitna bazue katil main hai   (the passion of patriotism dwells in our heart now, we want to test how powerful the enemy is)

Karta nahin kyun  doosra kuch baatcheet- dekhta hun main jise woh chup teri mehfil main hai (why doesn’t anyone talk, whoever I see around you is quiet)

Eh shaheed – E- emulak millat main tere upar nissar — ab teri himamt ka charcha gair ki mehfil main hai   (o my country i surrender myself to you ,  your courage is talked about by others now)

Waqt aane de bata denge tujhe ey aasma , hum abhi se kya batayen kya hamare dil main hai    (let the time come we will tell you ‘o’ sky – what do we say what is in our minds Now )

Kheench kar lai hai sabko katal hone ki umeed– aashiqon ka aaj jhamghat  Koochaye qatil main hai  ( the desire to be slain has brought everyone together, the group of lovers have come together)

Dekhna hai zor kitna bazue qatil main hai …

and oh yes INKI MAA KI AANKH .. the people who are ruling us.. as the british did

Looking forward to the comments I am gonna get after this article but after commenting do read the article again with a cool mind and think what I have said .. If you dont understand DO ASK….:)

THE HINDUSTAN SOCIALIST REPUBLICAN ARMY (NOTICE)

It takes a loud voice to make the deaf hear, with these immortal words uttered on a similar occasion by Valiant, a French anarchist martyr, do we strongly justify this action of ours.

This is how the above notice was put all over the nation in those days of the british RAJ.. signed by

Balraj  Commander-in-Chief  (Balraj was the pseudonym of Chandra Shekhar Azaad , The commander-in-chief of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (army))

A few days back a young man from india did just that , when he slapped the tainted,corrupt congressman the so-called person who follows the Gandhian principal, Sharad Pawar.. The one time team member of Anna Ji.

I felt happy when I saw that happen reminded me of the saying above.

YES it is needed , the need of the hour is that such leaders and by that I MEAN each one of them, over the time we have seen whats going on with all the leaders. they have all had some skeletons in their cupboards. YET we the nation are still sitting quiet.

उजजले खददर का कफ़न पहने मेरे बगुला भगत
बदन चीथड़ों में लिपटा तेरी बेटी का नंगा क्यूँ है ?
एय गुलशने हिंद के गदार निगेबान
मुझे यह तो बता तेरे बाग़ में लूट कतल अगवा और दंगा क्यूँ है ?
कुछ खिले कुछ बिन खिले मुरझा गए
कुछ को मिली मंजिलें कुछ राह में जान गवां गए
तभी तो जलती हैं रोज़ बसें गाड़ियां ट्रक ट्रामें
तुम कहते हो ठीक नहीं गलत काम है यह
में कहता हूँ ज़ुल्म के मारों का इंतकाम है यह
यह इंतकाम इन्कलाब भी बन सकता है
यह नई पीढ़ी है यह कुछ करके दिखा सकती है
यूँ तो गुलशन की हर शाख पे तुम बैठे हो
यह वोह चिंगारी है जो हर शाख जला सकती है

I was reading a few blogs, where people have been trying to find faults with the action of the youth and bringing the AGE OLD GANDHI into it how ahimsa and nonviolence helped .. DID IT REALLY.

We as a nation have to wake up to all this and know the history the proper history and stop idiolising a human being to be god.

It made my smile when ANNA Ji said “only one”.. YES that’s the correct reply .. but obviously the politician quickly took over him and he changed his answer, and now every other politcial party is trying to take some mileage out of it, NO one is bothering to see whats happening to the young man. Should you leaders not try to get in touch with this man and ask WHY he slapped ?

Some have written how non-violent act can be more effective  and that at the end of the day, a minister is a minister whose post and designation demands certain regard.  But the same minister was put there to work for the NATION for the PEOPLE not for himself , All he has done is the opposite,  thats the OATH he takes when he takes on the chair.. he has not given a damn about it .. so WHY should a common man think about him being a minister ?

Why don’t we leave the criminals and rapists who will take an oath to not do anything like that , Why do we put them behind bars, We follow non-violence then should we not treat these as human and pardon them, is that not what Gandhi said. So Why are we punishing them ?

It’s this ideology which will never let India be the nation it should be, If one does good a hundred are there to pull them down.  the problem is we want a change, but we will not do anything to help this change, sit in our houses and make such decisions , when the time comes to do something or just support someone doing something we bring the age-old funda about Gandhi-ism.

Same old sayings We want a Gandhi to be born in our house and a Bhagat singh in neighbours, so in case things change because of all the hard work done ALSO by the bhagat singhs , OUR Gandhi gets all the benefit and we can reap in the glory ..

No matter what the guy did, Look at the feeling how much hatred he has , I am sure millions have the same. It was like when they showed in the end of the film Rang De Basanti the youth saying they will do this and that But has anyone done anything , it’s still the same.

This THAPAD was a necessity need of the hour, to wake the people , as they say NOISE does wake up especially the one that comes from the impact right under the EARDRUM.

I hope Sharad pawar gets the message and starts to work NOW for what he was elected.. others take notice too. Nothing is lost still we can still resurrect the nation , the ministers leaders they have earned enough DO SOMETHING FOR THE NATION at least NOW.   Otherwise the day is not far when youth like Bhagat singh – Rajguru- sukhdev – Chandra shekhar DO take birth .. and then there will not be anywhere for you to run or hide.  What will you do then..

Suddenly all over the politicians are condemning the young man, I dont see all these politicians come together when a bill has to passed for the good of the nation, they dont come together to do ANYTHING good, I guess the cat is among the pigeons and all these leaders can suddenly see themselves getting slapped.  What happens to them when a good has to be done, dont they remember the OATH they have taken.  What have they ever done ..

Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party leaders also criticized the assailant and nearly all speakers noted that Pawar was a warm and helpful leader who did not deserve to be treated with such violence. REALLY so i guess they are saying he is not CORRUPT and is INNOCENT and obviously a firm follower of Gandhi.

The best was the comment I read CHOR CHOR – BHAI BHAI .. so very TRUE .. its only the corrupt trying to speak in favour of the corrupt …

The news of BANDHS and all over the cities .. Really .. shows how our nation works , no wonder these traitors will never go EVER .. and no matter what Anna ji does things will never change otherwise all those who are protesting are they saying Sharad Pawar is Innocent and is PURE WHITE.. a question that needs to be asked by all who took to roads and brought the cities to stand-still WHY.. and we say we indians are awakening up ARE WE ?

LOT of questions come up .. I hope some sense prevails on us indians and we can see through and do something for the nation , Look at everyone supporting each other. People talking of Gandhism and what they themselves do or have done, in spite of everyone knowing how corrupt each is Still supporting.

No one does a BANDH when innocent are beaten, the farmers look at their state.. Funny makes me laugh where our loyalties are , end of the day WE are just as bad as these politicians in spite of knowing what the truth is we are still supporting.. What will happen to our nation when WE are so corrupt ourself.

WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a Repost of a article written last year for a competition here , I did not have anything more to write on the politics in india so am Reposting it here Again 🙂 A lot has been written already on the politics-independance day and all in blogosphere 🙂  As such nothing much has changed from last year to today .. same thoughts still exist

Phatte: So, the monsoons are finally here huh? Don’t you just love the feel of the rains? The beautiful breeze that flows and how everything is green in Mumbai?

Vijay: You mean of what little green is left in the city? I’m not really enjoying the rains. My house is getting more unstable day by day. Imagine what a day of continuous rain will do to it.

Phatte: But didn’t your MLA start off some initiative to rebuild houses in the chawl? I noticed the posters plastered all over the place.

Vijay: Yes he did. Just like he promised electricity, subsidized food tickets for the needy and a school exclusively for the chawl kids. Somehow those “schemes” are yet to be started and it’s been couple of years already since the last elections.

Phatte: Well, I think you should talk to your MLA about this.

Vijay: That will take at least a few years. What to do about my house till then?

Phatte: Why a few years?

Vijay: Well, the MLA comes only a month before the elections and then leaves a month after. And even during the rallies and pre-election chaos, he only visits some chawls, picks up the weakest looking kids and talks to the women. We just wave at him from a distance.
Phatte: I know. That is the story everywhere. I don’t even remember the name of the MLA of my area. Why don’t you shift bases then? Go to Andheri or some other place?

Vijay: And wade through the floods? Are you nuts? We lost my sister-in-law in last year’s flashfloods. My wife would rather leave me than going to that part of Mumbai.

Phatte: I read in the paper that the Municipal Corporation is going to take appropriate steps to lessen the effect of floods in Mumbai this year.

Vijay: Why would they? Bollywood even made a movie on it and raked in good money. From what I hear, the people at the Municipal Corporation were thrilled that the floods were portrayed so beautifully in that movie.

Phatte: I remember that movie. I had gone to watch it, but unfortunately couldn’t reach the hall on time.

Vijay: Too much rush, eh?

Phatte: Oh no, apparently some minister sahib decided to take a ride around the city that particular day. The Police had blocked all the major roads for his cavalcade of vehicles to pass. And off course, once the roads were opened you know the maniacal traffic in Mumbai; where cows have the right of way.

Vijay: You are right off course. Hey what happened about your son’s admission to ITI?

Phatte: I’m glad you asked! I have good news on that front. My son got through.

Vijay: Congratulations! You were having a harrowing time about it.

Phatte: I know. I had been hopping from office to office trying to sort out our caste certificate. When I went to the ITI admission office, they just looked at me once and said there was no job there for me! Can you believe it? I explained to him, I wasn’t there for a job but to get my son into the institute. So he just asked me which OBC I belong to. I tell you Vijay, if there’s one good thing these politicians have done, it’s this reservation system. My son can attend college now.

Vijay: Brilliant! What was his rank by the way?

Phatte: Oh, he was ranked 1,75,000. What about your son? He has grown up to be a fine young man. What plans do you have for him?

Vijay: He is going to stay with my brother Raj. Raj is the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and he thinks my son has just the right attitude to be a part of MNS. Besides you don’t really need any educational qualifications to join Politics in India.

Phatte: MNS? Isn’t that the party routing for Marathi Manoos?

Vijay: Yes.

Phatte: Gandhiji must have turned in his grave the day MNS came into existence. I mean, he tried to spread the message of brotherhood, tolerance and secularism all his life. Now, some politicians are trying to break our unity on the terms of who is Marathi and who’s not. It is so sad.

Vijay: But I completely agree with their propaganda. Initially our politicians told us to be a secular nation and welcome outsiders to be a part of our society. I mean what a truck load of nonsense is that? This is our city. Why should we let others come here? I like that guy leading MNS.

Phatte: But doesn’t he have a few criminal cases against him for inciting riots in the city?

Vijay: Stop being a hypocrite Phatte. These days every other politician has a criminal record in his name. Does that stop people from contesting elections? Off course not! How does it matter if they have a criminal record, if now they are stepping into the most noble of all services: helping the common man?

Phatte: You seriously think politicians are doing things to help us? Have you seen the bungalow of that MLA from Juhu? It’s right next to Amitabh Bachchan’s house. If he thought of spending even 1% of what went into making that house, I think our whole slum can be rebuilt.

Vijay: Well all the corruption and black money has to be converted to white money in some way right? What better than to make a palatial house in the richest suburb of Mumbai. I bet they have some hi-fi cars too.

Phatte: Yes, bullet proof cars for the politicians, whereas people bleed on the streets everytime there is a terror attack.

Vijay: Seriously what is the world coming to Phatte? I feel disappointed living in this nation which is ruled by such characters.

Phatte: Well, maybe we should elect the other party in the next elections.

A sudden commotion erupts. A lot of people start running hither thither.

Vijay: What is happening? What the hell is going on? Why so much of rush?

Iqbal: (shouting from the crowd): Don’t you know? Vinod Kambli has decided to join politics. He has come to the slums to meet us. I am so excited! A cricketer in our area!

Phatte: This is great! After movie stars now cricketers are also getting into politics. Isn’t there any eligibility criterion for politicians?

Vijay: His earnings from ads and reality shows must have dried up Phatte. And isn’t entering into politics a sure shot ticket to lottery?

Phatte: Come Vijay, lets see how well this politician lies and what unique promises he makes to us.

PS:- Image courtsey a Lovely friend Manna.

PSS:- Where are all you lovely people from the Blue Ink society.. Been ages since we have talked to each other ..

PS:- Please also visit  an Interview by Elegant Chic.  I got interviewed and its been my honour once again for the same.

I have been bad not visited many blogs that I visit regularly , sorry about that will come soon to all the lovely people to have a read .. 🙂 take care all and keep smiling

October 1984 was the day when humanity , brotherhood went for a six in a country which boasted of being the biggest democracy and even bigger in diversity.  Its been 27 years now to the day when the mobs were given free hand to do as they please in the wake of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination, the mob whose one target was to find a Sikh and kill.. neighbours became foes. People who were there with you, for you in thick and thin before that day, The ones who boasted of friendship.

That massacre raises a lot of SERIOUS questions about the autonomy of  law and order machinery,  It all went for a six in those three days. Human rights had no meaning.  Then came another Blow , that too from a chosen leader who supposedly was educated and intelligent , Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, He had the audacity to say in his first public meeting that such things happen or are caused  by the fall of a mighty tree ,  Instead of  condemning it all it seemed he likened the carnage.

In the Drama that has unfolded over the years, lots of govts. came and went , each promising justice but that has never come I mean barely 10-15 people have been convicted for murders committed , the official death toll was 2,733 .. Where is the logic behind all this. How can this be justified ? 

Does this not cast a poor reflection on the integrity of India’s criminal justice system ?

There has not even been a condolence motion to the victims of the 1984 carnage, the human rights in this country has suffered a terrible setback, Such is the disdain displayed by the highest institutions of India,  If such are the deals meted out to the people of this country what can we expect the country to do in case of foreign criminals doing the same to us in our own country.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself acknowledged in Parliament years ago that despite official inquiries into the 1984 carnage, “We all know that we still do not know the truth, and the search must go on.” 

How is it possible, No wonder the indian people are loosing faith in their own country .  When other countries commemorated the 25 years of the bloodshed, India was still quiet as they were too wary of the fact that if  any sort of Commemoration is done for the victims, it would be an insult to Indira Gandhi

Is her Murder bigger then the Murders of  (Official numbers) 2,733?

Even when we were under the RAJ, The british publicly condemned General Dyer for taking the action against the innocent in Jallianwala Bagh, , a Public committee called “HUNTER COMMITTEE” was created, it was endorsed by the house of commons in UK, and Dyer was removed from the army unceremoniously. But India as a country could not do so, HAS NOT DONE SO, in spite of 27 long years gone by. So much so that Independent India has FAILED To measure up to the benchmarks set even by the Raj.

All this has done is give the  communal parties a big thumbs up, well we all know that these are the parties that organised the killings of Muslims in Maharashtra in 1993 and Gujarat in 2002.

We talk of Equality but is there any equality, when there is so much Indifference towards the minorities, I mean if Sikhs can suffer this, imagine what would a Dalit in an obscure village feel.

What does that tell us about the mentality of  the citizens who are still voting for those tainted ministers , I remember the words used by our neighbour in Chandigarh, In those days when the elections took place, She came over to our house and categorically shouted “VOTE PAO HATH NU”.. as the hand was a symbol for congress then and this was the neighbours with whom we had lived since I was born. With whom we were closer than our relatives. Yet when it happened there was only one reality Hindu – Sikh .. all the Love was forgotten.

To this day there are places where more proof of genocide are being discovered, even in January 2011 a place Hondh-Chillar, where 32 Sikhs were killed on November 2, 1984, was discovered in northern Haryana, and in March 2011 another place near Pataudi, was discovered.  The official death toll is much higher than that. 

“The discovery of more Sikh massacre victims after nearly three decades shows the reluctance of successive Indian governments, despite numerous commissions of inquiry, to get to the truth and prosecute those responsible for the anti-Sikh violence,” said Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director at Human Rights Watch.

It is sad that there are cases being fought on foreign soil against the Congress Govt, Yet no one has batted an eyelid in the country itself.

The 2011 WikiLeaks cable leaks revealed that the United States was convinced about the complicity of Indian Government ruled by the Indian National Congress in the riots, and termed it as “opportunism” and “hatred” of the Congress government against Sikhs.

I wonder what is to become of this great nation, Will the culprits ever be charged for any crime or is it that only the common will have to suffer.

A lot of thoughts go by ones mind when idle , today as I sat in my car to drive to work, I had this  how do I say chaos of thoughts and none matched the one that just went by it was all going in tangents, at one time I was home and the next I was thinking of Cricket or the Fast taken by Anna Hazaare. I had to literally sit down and SHAKE my head severely to bring it back in sync with normalcy :), if that is possible.

Well I am trying to jot down the thoughts now these may hurt a lot of people so I am sorry to them but as usual would ask them to think on the wider picture and logically.. The recent few events that have happened back home have been good – bad and Ugly.. I mean world cup happened I wanted to write a post on it but blogosphere is full of articles so I did not post though I had one in the drafts, The whole nation became one in that one last week of the matches , australia-Pakistan-Sri Lanka all defeated in a row thanks to some good cricket played by our team .. but other then that it was the spirit of the indians which came to the fore how we all got together, here in UK too it was evident everyone in pubs wearing the Blue shirts and cheering till throats went hoarse .. 

That was the GOOD…  

Then came the chain of events where Anna hazaare along with a whole lot of people took this fast to get the Govt of india to their knees , which was a Very good thing that finally the Govt. got so scared that they could not afford something happening to Anna , they had to relent to it, brings to mind the satyagraha taken by Indians against the British people but there was a STARK DIFFERENCE at that time the whole country was one but now only a handful which was a shame , Out of Billions of People just a meagre few .. I know a lot of the Intelligent people out there will say it’s a START, but I am as usual cynical start of what, Things can’t get achieved by a few going on a fast , their have to be a vast majority of people who need to give there support.  Not forgetting about the rumours that just came after the fast was broken many of the distinguished people in the group had political problems , I will not get into the details cause somewhere in my heart I knew this would happen. True there are some genuine people who want things to change but those genuine people are few, and as the poem i posted I don’t believe in the Khadi wearing leaders.   They are all the same , some have hundreds of skeletons in their cupboard , some just One but they do have.

Well I don’t want to go on and on about that , I do support the Cause started by Anna Hazare, but as I said earlier I don’t support the khadi wearing people, To me I still feel that we need to make a loud noise to make sure the DEAF hear us and that will only come true if the current generation and the one coming up behind will get together, I mean I was watching the IPL match between Kings XI and One more team I forgot the name I think it was Mumbai indians and the stadium had more people in it then the number of people who actually GENUINELY went out and supported the anti corruption Cause. That is the reality of our great nation.

That was BAD

I have so many question running around, a soldier in the army gets paid to fight for the country for which he is ready to give his life, they live in conditions where the majority of so-called Desh Bhagats wont even survive one day, What they are doing is real work then why do we start comparing a sports man as a soldier of the country as it happened in the Cricket match against Pakistan, Everyone saw the crowd there, people spent LAKHS of rupees to get a ticket to watch that match but I am sure NONE of them spent a thousand to buy a bus ticket to go to Delhi to sit with the people who were fasting.

How come none of the sportsmen who when it comes to recognition come in herds and then moan how they are paid less or not thought of , come in support.  I mean with no disrespect to the supporters of GOD of cricket Sachin Tendulkar, I am myself a fan of his and he is GOD , Why could he not have come in support and gone and sat there for a fast, I mean he is made his life, his future generations life living in india , the love and affection he has got, I do feel that someone like him Should have supported the cause and then MAYBE the cricket frenzy public would have done more and not just their are a few who can be named who are willing to take millions from the nation but give nothing in return and i say nothing BECAUSE when they lose they are not accounted for. none of them say of I wont take the match fee for this one because we lost.

True the govt has agreed to the terms of the Cause but that is it , Nothing is going to happen the govt has just agreed to put the bill in the session whether something actually takes place once passed we have yet to find out, the reason being each and every leader will have to step down or brought to justice cause they are the Khadi wearing politicians and that to bright White starched ironed ones.  If we think something will change then who are we kidding.

That is UGLY 

HENCE my thought that till we ALL get together MILLIONS-BILLIONS  and make that NOISE the noise that will wake up the deaf-blind govt we have things will not change.
