Happy Independence Day!

73 years of Independence it is,
Oh what a long way we have come;
From nothing but $30 billion gdp,
To a wish for a massive $5 trillion.

Such eventful timeline India has seen,
With its share of highs and lows;
Yet soldiers give it all at the borders;
And only in front of the flag, they bow.

If you consider the current times,
Take a look at what the doctors do;
Sacrificing their sleep and wellbeing,
And giving innocent citizens life anew.

You go out on a Sunday or a holiday,
There are workers completing their tasks;
Cleaning the street, emptying the bins;
And as security watching out, while we rest.

How about the National team players,
Whether it is cricket, soccer or hockey;
They all have training every single day,
And a wish to earn medals for the country.

There are private businesses as well,
Driven by a goal to earn money;
What they do also adds to the gdp,
And pay tax to improve India’s property.

Utilities companies are also in the list,
People keep it working even on days off;
Because that is the lifeline for the citizens,
And the heart that never stops beating.

All of these, and yet so much more,
Some are right in front of your eyes;
While some are hidden in the back,
And are making your life without cries.

We have come a long way, still lots to improve,
Whether in infrastructure or in education;
We need to clean up the mess that is there;
With all voices, let’s make ‘India’ echo again.

Humanity

Has humanity really gone to tatters? Just what is wrong with this world and some of the people living here. Why can’t we appreciate other people or other animals. Why is this simple thing so hard to get through? We are in 21st century, fighting amongst ourselves, blaming each other whether for the pandemic, for the poor decision making, for inequality and more.

Why can’t we all come together and stand united? How does the color of skin matter? You learn and understand people as you talk to them, get to know them. Can you really tell what skin color or what religion the other person is while talking on the phone? No. You can’t. You talk to everyone equally, be sweet with people who talk nicely, be rude to people who are abusive.

So why can’t we do this face to face? Where does the religion or color card come in. Are you stupid?

And then the worst people are there who harm creatures that don’t even have the ability to speak. Just read the article below… I mean how can anyone do that? 😔 Incidents such as these are heart wrenching.

Fucked up news.

At the end of the day, it’s the responsibility of each and every one of us to educate others. Help others. And then who don’t listen, they need to be dealt with.

World Cup!!

It’s a person’s natural instinct to defend and cheer for their national team. That doesn’t mean that the person doesn’t enjoy the sport or hates the other team. This desire to side with a team is the passion that drives the spectators for a sport, and in the process they also admire the players who actually perform well irrespective of the team.

#India #WorldCup #cricket #2019

A peaceful vacation…

All you need are a few books and a peaceful place to read them… Off to Gangtok!

War!?

Is this a joke to people? Do you understand that everyone is rejoicing over people being killed, bodies being burned, bombs being exploded!

Who the enemy is is now completely out of the equation now, and India or Pakistan are finding a new way to target each other?

People, the enemy are the terrorists! Those who take innocent lives just to force there own propaganda on others! They should be the target, and India or Pakistan should both focus on eliminating this threat of Terrorism before it takes even more lives!

Both these countries were one till 1947, before the “Britishers” separated them as now most of the time they are fighting at the border.

Please understand that war will bring nothing good other than taking even more lives. Think about the soldiers of your own country! They have families too. They want to live too!

Political visit

So it makes sense to block all roads whenever a political candidate, minister or such visits the town?

I mean really, other people’s work isn’t important obviously. Who gives a shit about normal people.

Cheers 🥂

Drive Carefully… Esp on highways with no reflectives!

haryana road accident ambala chandigarh

A 50 vehicle pile up happened in Ambala, Haryana on Saturday morning (December 29th), killing seven people and injuring more than four people. As per the initial investigations, a truck coming from the opposite direction, rammed into two cars on the Ambala-Chandigarh National Highway due to poor visibility owing to heavy fog.

Bus and Truck drivers have been called out several times in India due to their rash driving, with accidents happening frequently.
“The victims, who were in two cars, were on their way from Chandigarh to Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh. They had stopped on the highway as one of the cars developed a snag and the heavy vehicle rammed into their cars from behind in the heavy fog.”

Police said the driver of the unidentified heavy vehicle escaped from the spot. Such is the human behavior, running away from the incident even after making such a serious mistake. Hopefully justice will be served soon.

At the same time, what is the best way to stop any such incidents from happening in the future? Use of proper reflectives, side-rails along the roads are things that the government should consider while making national highways. At the same time strict regulations should be placed on speed especially that of heavy vehicles.

Passed: Triple Talaq Bill

Is it a bliss that the Triple Talaq bill has passed Lok Sabha?

Most people while applauding the bill have condemned one major issue in the bill, which is the criminalizing of the Triple Talaq offense. Rather than keeping it a civil offense, the punishment has been changed to criminal i.e. the men involved with such issues as Triple Talaq might face Jail time. However, no other religion has had such a harsh punishment in this category as of now.

At the same time, it is a big win for Muslim women, who can finally get a chance to state their opinions and reasons in the court and not let any men cheat or ridicule them by saying a mere three words.

A few opinions are of the fact that the bill has been hastely passed in the Lok Sabha due to the upcoming 2019 political elections, and gain the votes of Muslim individuals in the country.
At the same time it is to be noted that Mr. Amit Shah tweeted “This is a historic step ensuring equality and dignity for the Muslim women. Congress and other parties must apologise for decades of injustice towards Muslim women.The usage of such words and linking political parties in the same makes you question the very intent of passing the bill.

Amritsar train tragedy

This is so sad. My prayers are with the victims. 😭

I really wish tere is a barter law in the country for outdoor events such as this, demonstration or anything else. Laws on where it can take place, the area assigned and so on!

This is a #shockingaccident, and Who is to blame?

Who can give back the lives of those more than 50 people killed? And several more who experienced this trauma!?

Let this be #notaboutpolitics for once, and give the right thoughts to how things can be improved in this growing country.

India is my country and I love it! Let’s try to #improve the things that aren’t correct.

Tell me, whoever organized the event, what are you going to say to those 50+ people and there families? Can you bring them back?

Politics…

#politics #India #government #life #people

There is something unique happening on political stage today. Every politician of opposition, irrespective or party or ideological beliefs, is ganging up against not one party, but one man… Narendra Modi. And the surprising part is that most of those politicians have cases of corruption, or abuse of power, against them.

They are prepared to sacrifice seats, they are prepared to accept humiliating coalition terms, so that Modi’s candidate does not win.

The reason is simple. It is just not power they stand to lose. They fear ending up in jail like Lallu if Modi comes to power for another term.

They seemed to have spared no efforts to divide voters, make false reservation promises, create strife between communities, and even bribe vested media.

The choice now rests with people.

Keep in mind that these cases of corruption like Vijay Mallya, Nirava Modi and more have come into light now. If it was another party ruling, then their would have been no disclosure only. These business people had started operating business long before the BJP government, and were caught during the tenure of the BJP government. So don’t blame BJP for these scandals.

Do people want their children to live in an atmosphere of honesty, fairness, respect, prosperity and pass on a great nation to their children and grandchildren!

It will us, the people, who will lose if we don’t choose, if we don’t vote, the right person.

Also, in this 21st century, I understand that if a country needs to progress then it should hold back its views against race/religion/gender. You need to move the country ahead, move the people ahead whoever they are and wherever they are from. How can you even waste time thinking about all these things!

That being said, no rule is without flaws, but external bleeding is much better and shorter than an internal one.

राजनीतिक मंच पर आज कुछ अनोखा हो रहा है। विपक्ष के हर राजनेता, चाहे कोई भी पक्ष या विचारधारात्मक मान्यताओं, एक पार्टी के खिलाफ गिरोह नहीं कर रहा है, लेकिन एक व्यक्ति के खिलाफ … नरेंद्र मोदी। और आश्चर्यजनक बात यह है कि उन राजनेताओं में से अधिकांश भ्रष्टाचार के मामलों या उनके खिलाफ सत्ता का दुरुपयोग करते हैं।

वे सीटों को त्यागने के लिए तैयार हैं, वे अपमानजनक गठबंधन शर्तों को स्वीकार करने के लिए तैयार हैं, ताकि मोदी का उम्मीदवार जीत न सके।

वजह साफ है। यह सिर्फ सत्ता नहीं है जो वे खोने के लिए खड़े हैं। अगर मोदी एक और कार्यकाल के लिए सत्ता में आते हैं तो उन्हें लालू की तरह जेल में खत्म होने का डर है।

उन्होंने मतदाताओं को विभाजित करने, झूठे आरक्षण के वादे करने, समुदायों के बीच संघर्ष बनाने और यहां तक ​​कि निहित मीडिया को रिश्वत देने के प्रयास किए हैं।

लोगों को चुनने की जरूरत है।

ध्यान रखें कि भ्रष्टाचार के इन मामलों जैसे विजय माल्या, निर्वा मोदी और अधिक अब प्रकाश में आ गए हैं। इन व्यवसायियों ने बहुत पहले कारोबार शुरू कर दिया था, और बीजेपी सरकार के कार्यकाल के दौरान पकड़े गए थे। तो इन घोटालों के लिए बीजेपी को दोष न दें।

क्या लोग चाहते हैं कि उनके बच्चे ईमानदारी, निष्पक्षता, सम्मान, समृद्धि के माहौल में रहें और अपने बच्चों और पोते-बच्चों के लिए एक महान राष्ट्र पर जाएं!

इसके अलावा, इस 21 वीं शताब्दी में, मैं समझता हूं कि यदि किसी देश को प्रगति की आवश्यकता है तो उसे धर्म / लिंग के खिलाफ अपने विचारों को वापस रखना चाहिए। आपको देश को आगे बढ़ने, लोगों को आगे बढ़ने की जरूरत है, जो भी हो और जहां भी वे हैं। इन सभी चीजों के बारे में सोचने में आप समय बर्बाद कैसे कर सकते हैं!
