I start on a positive note
Heard of the CVC slamming by the SC? Or the continuous slamming of the government for 2G+CWG scams?
If not, I’d give you a brief review: In a landmark judgement, the SC slammed the government for appointing a certain minister as the Vigilance Commissioner, as he had a pending trial against him for possible corruption charges. This revokes the feeling that yes, law still exists in this nation. The Government, IS, answerable to the public. A Few Good Men are still left. Better, the nation perhaps is in a mood to wake up!! Maybe, this time around the guilt will not saunter free. There was a lifting piece in The Times, regarding this issue which highlighted quite a few facts which pointed in this direction; and well this decision perhaps added more weight to the balance.
It’s the bus route, I’d say; the basic problem lies in the fact that I, at times, am agitated to use the Delhi Transport Corporation’s services instead of the DMRC’s; and this, in turn, exposes me to the Wazirabad area. It’s not the whole area, it’s this particular stretch: stretch turned into a virtual ‘sewer tributary’; that pisses me off! I don’t even reside here for God’s sake, but still, the effect is tremendous, perhaps magnified a bit by the long jams. The nation is sleeping, the people are sleeping!
Wait!What was that?
A second, prolonged look confirmed what I was seeing. God! What is with this day!!
A man, deprived of even perhaps the most basic necessity: clothing walks along. He must be around the late 40s or 50s (judging by his streaked hair), more of a skeletal figure, had polythenes wrapped around his feet and was using ‘boris’ stringed together to barely be able to cover up his body. Incidently, I got reminded of an IF discussion regarding the new budget. When one India is so deep into poverty and debt, how could you possibly roll up your car windows and pretend that nothing of this sort happens!!! There was this man: Gandhi, who used to roam the planet once, he said: for India to develop, it’s poor must be uplifted, villages must be developed. After all, the strength of a team is not determined by the strongest member, it’s determined by the weakest!!
Child Labor: Must’ve heard the term somewhere, no…?!!? Must’ve witnessed it amass I can guaranty that!! ?
Now a simple question: How many times have you raised your voice?? I speak for myself and I did it once, though it was a hugely unsuccessfull attempt.
Now, I’ve got another question: Don’t we know it’s a crime or rather, don’t we understand it’s magnitude? A child who can’t even hold a fucking plate, is washing it!!! But why would you care? You’d rather have your ‘Kulcha-Roll’!!
Mukherji Nagar thronges with people who seek coaching for IAS, IES, IPS and so on. When a lady, currently a top notch exec. in Railways was asked why she wanted to became an IAS?
She replied firmly: “When I retire, I want to be an inspiration for people like Raja, and give the nation another 2000 crore scam!”
The country needs you! Please Wake Up!!
P.S. ‘Bori’ is the bag in which rice is delivered usually and in many cases, vegetables too are transported packed in ‘boris’. It is usually brown in color and I’m not sure about the fabric which is used!
