It is 15th August today, India’s Independence Day. This is the day to celebrate freedom. The freedom won by very many great souls who fought with every possible means from Parliament Bomb to Khadi and from Making Salt to Indian National Army, to make it sure that when someone like me was born, he would breath in free air. Sitting in my chair, I am pondering over the 60 years of free India as well as my own self, trying to find my role in this country.

Every time laying idle on my bed, driving on city roads, commuting in a local bus/train, walking in a public park and enjoying freedom in all those activities, I used to ask myself what I had done for my country. “What was my contribution?” But never ever there was an answer. Nobody asked me this question ever before but suddenly my conscious sprang up questions. “At my work place, I have to justify my presence every day to get paid, but why I am not answerable to my country. My job pays me money, but motherland has given me life and means to live it. Then why this apathy towards my own country?” These were some questions to which I could not find answer.

Every year celebrating Independence Day, congratulating each other through SMSes, being at home for whole day enjoying monsoon rains, I had that guilt in some corner of my heart asking me “What have you done for your Motherland? Do you really deserve this freedom?”

I tried to pacify myself whenever my conscious cursed me of being a non-performer for my country while I was “exceeding expectations” in my organization’s appraisal cycle. I tried to tell myself that it was not my fault that there were so many things pending in India for past 60 years, but I couldn’t convince. I also told myself that the India I saw was what India was destined to be and I couldn’t do much in changing the destiny of a billion people but I failed yet again. I tried hard to convey that “Bharat vs. India” was nothing but merely a fuss created by Media. I admit that I failed in that effort also. My conscious crushed all my false beliefs and explanations that I gave to shrug-off my responsibilities towards my motherland.

Then I gave up. I admitted to myself that yes I was wrong. I was wrong in every aspect. But what could I do, was my question to my conscious. “It is the failure of top leadership which is letting India down and not a person as small as me”, I argued to myself. So, I should not be blamed for anything. But am I Small? When I argue with my boss for my ever unsatisfactory appraisal, I portray a picture of myself which is just better than Einstein. Then why suddenly, I become a small guy when it comes to fulfill the responsibilities for my country.

None will find a hypocrite as big as I am. I want a smooth road to drive my expensive car but don’t want to keep it clean and in good shape. I boast of my freedom to use (many times burn too) public property but I run from pillar to post to avoid taxes which actually build taxes. I have given so many lectures to my friends and siblings saying how the system does not work properly, without thinking how the system shall work properly and what do we need to do to ensure the functioning. I cry for poor living below poverty line under inhuman conditions but I have an underpaid maid at my place doing daily chores. I go out and give lectures against Child labour at various informal sessions but the gentleman who comes to wash my car is less than 12 years old.

We all know that Freedom comes with a lot of comforts. I am free to do anything in India and I am proud of being free citizen of such a great county. But freedom also brings some responsibilities. Why was I running away from them? I have no answer. May be I was too immature to realize my responsibilities at that time. But better late than never.

Today, my heart beats for my country. And I will not let it go down now. If we have bad political leaders who have let us down, we have great icons like NRN, APJ Abdul Kalam, AHP and Sachin Tendulkar who have honestly done wonders for our country. We can follow their examples and excel in our life while we stay within the limits of ethics, values and true spirit. If I can adopt the Spirit of Wipro, I can create, adopt and help others adopt, Spirit of India. If I can be a true Indian, I would be contributing to my country in a big way because as per my definition of an Indian, he/she will be successful in not only achieving his/her professional and personal goals but also contribute in healthy growth of his/her countrymen. The quest is on to encourage everyone around me to shun every other identity and become a True Indian. I need not worry about the bottlenecks in the system because no blockage is big enough to discourage me on my path to pay back to my country. If I can gather some True Indians along with me, we can flood open any bottleneck. I am not afraid of being isolated in my run upto realizing my dream of being a true Indian because Shaheed Bhagat Singh never was afraid of anything like this.
We have precedence when the adversities have been faced bravely by the warriors and they have won laurels for doing that. Manmohan Singh might not have thought he was writing history while he humbly read out his strategies 16 years ago. None had expected that nerves of Indira Gandhi were made of steel, strong enough to lead a nation to defeat enemies while fighting so many adversaries. None expects me to be able to do anything. They never will. It’s me who has to do my country proud of its citizens and I will start by myself. I will become a True Indian.

Listening attentively to the National Anthem being played on a TV channel, I can’t resist my hand going on to Salute the Indian Tricolour and say proudly, Jai Hind!

The best part about this issue is that the Fathers of constitution had made the provision of reservation for SCs, STs and OBCs for ten years only. But the govt after that never had that courage to take the decision back. The lack of political will on part of all subsequent govts lead to the continuation of this provision and those ten years being extended everytime it came to expiry without any single voice of opposition. The point is that even the so called backward people understand that such stupid quotas are made for only a few who are already priviliged enuff. But who can teach these assholes??
 

The so called Dalit kI Beti Mayawati is such a big bitch. She can spend more than a Crore of Rupees on her b'day but wud never help any backward policy to get thru. She was the one who gave approval to Taj Corridor project but unfortunately the Congress is getting support from her in Central govt. She wud not spare a chance to abuse BJP, Congress and Mulayam Singh (UP CM another Goonda cum Politician) but wud take their support and form govt anytime. She does not have a single issue to raise in politics except for a fight for Dalits. But actually that fight is just for her own interests and exisitence. She has made Kanshi Ram captive with her muscle power. The goondi of UP wud ask for votes saying I am being harassed. Bloody liar bitch!!
Anyways the list of such politicians is never ending. Take for example Ram Vilas Paswan. He wud praise Sonia Gandhi, Lalu and everyone till they support him in Bihar election. But when it came to govt formation, those same Sonia and Lalu became non secular and anti Dalit. I dont understand how come this happen so fast that Sonia , Lalu and others change without themselves being aware. Another idiotic leader in this leader is Uma Bharti of BJP. Uff how I wish that she was little educated. She is flambuoyant but without common sense. She believes in raising issues by walking out of meetings. That is just vote politics. She wud realize her level soon.I pity this lady. How immoral these ladies like Sushma Sawraj and Uma Bharti could be I saw when Sonia was being offered PM post.
anyways the these leaders are none of my business. I want to keep my blog clean of shit.

Coming back to issue of reservations, I cud find such a lull over this issue among all political circles that is deafening.How cud anyone commit suicide in politics by just opposing this issue but the awareness is also less among people. The politicians who are bringing these issues up are not at all in favor of any kind of development. Let the fucked up oldie Arjun Singh come up and sit in any test today. He cant score a single pass mark in whichever field he specializes. I put a blind bet on that. And it is he, who is making competion tuffer for us. Bastard. Ur 7 coming generations cant clear any exam of any level u asshole Mr.HRD minister. see the poor condition of the Youngest country of world that the guy who manages the HR is near 80. Uff!! and then the PM and FM are best educated guys of country's govt. If they can drive the economy (their area of specilazation) then why not hire an MBA-HR to manage HR of country.

People tend ignore castes but these are the guys who wud never let us forget it. They wud fan all bad sentiments to bake their bread. People can be made aware of all this but for that it is imperative to have them educated. And that is what these politicians wud never allow to happen. Educated voter wud never vote for Mayawati or anybody asking for vote just because he is of his caste. Educated person wud not deal his vote for a bottle for hundred rupees only. they want more.They want roads, electicity. Not what politicians give. Promises!!!

See the Punjab Govt. They are inaugrating hundreds of projects now. Everyday Capt Amrinder appears on Advt in newspaper saying we did this we wud do that. Every nook and corner of Punjab says that they dint do anything for Punjab except for Water Protection which is under scrutiny of Nehra commission now. What is the logic of laying foundation stone for a project of more than years now??Only and only elections. The coming govt wud stop them(most probably this time Akali bastards wud win).What is the wisdom of cancelling work on Refinery in Bathinda. BP Plc left the project citing reasons which are clearly saying that politics has taken blood out of them. Now Capt govt wants to start the project just before elections. Bloody liars. They think that people are fools.

Well yes many many people are fools. The trend of political attachment is taking toll over the political wisdom. People of Akalis themselves say that we wud not work but first throw Capt behind bars as he did with Badal. If god gives me one chance, I wud blast both these assholes after putting dynamite between their Butts. Badal is the biggest cheat of world. HE uses religious sentiments of sikhs to dominate issues in Punjab. Corruption in Punjab was rampant at his time. His wife wud call up various offices to put sifarish. I am Mrs. BAdal here. What a way to tac bribe. These guys are also very intelligent. He has got millions of Rs but claims that I wud quit politics if caught. You wud never be caught Mr.Badal. We are so sure about it because all you thieves oh!! politicians wud never commit any mistake while frauding public. When people can get away with murders from point blank range only because they are well connected, who can harm you who are calling the shots.

God bless my country.
 

Wah wah…It does nt get bigger than this.One of the best guy in Indian govt and head of state who is a leading

economist and undertands economics better that anyone in Govt has mentioned categorically that if India Inc does

not bring in reservations for backwards(can he please tell us how is son of an IAS officer SC by caste is

backward). How come he transformed from an economist to a politician. He could have balanced himself between both

roles. simple economics says that govt should be facilitator for all the activities in economy. growth is what wud

result by itself. and that growth is for every section of society (sorry Mr.PM, I dont consider people with

specific castes as underpriviledged,although m not an economist but i have common sense). Why on earth you want

bring those people into most competitive institutions of countyr who dont have the skill and more importantly will

to work. Jsut becoz he was born in a family of some caste does nt make him eligible to get a quota in IIM, IIT and

now private sector.Imagine what chaos wud persist if this quota lets in people who dont know anyhting.They wud be

sitting and doing nothing.COmpanies,IITs and IIMs are not responsible for clearing the basic fundamentals of some

guy who studied in a GOVT school. Mr.PM, see the way I exagerated GOVT.Any Tom Dick and Harry wud tell u that Govt

school at primary level are good for nothing.WHen u cant educate somebody at primary level and claim of helping

them, it is no help sir. You are rather cheating upon everyone.The backwards, the generals or forwards whatever u

call it and yourself. You are avoiding ur responsibilty of providing primary education and basic health in

country.and punishing others for ur own mistakes.
To be contd…
