What I didn’t want to do in my blog for so long has to be done now. Sorry for those who read blogs to pass time, this is not your kind of post, please click on the navigation bar and go to some other page. For people reading this: for the first time in my life I wish I had the language to kindle some spirit in our dampened souls, for the first time I wish I can speak like Nettaji Subhash Chandra Bose, who with his speech brought in innumerable teens and youths to fight against the Britishers, for the first time I wish I can speak like Obama to bring a change in the country.
No, don’t ask me, WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO TALK ABOUT INDIA AND INDIANS WHEN YOU ARE IN
This is not the first time we are facing such attacks, when our parliament was attacked and when we prepared to assault the militants in
What’s happening in our country today, a home minister who knows nothing but to talk non sense, an opposition leader who uses the terror attack to his political advantage, a lunatic who says any other human other than Maharashtrians should leave Maharashtra, I wonder which flush he has inserted his head now, why didn’t he went inside Taj to attack the terrorists to chase them out of his precious Maharashtra? Why didn’t he oppose the members of the Armed forces who are non-maharashtrians? Hope his followers learn what is right and what is not.
Do you think Indians lack patriotism? Nahhh… they unite when we play cricket, they feel their blood boiling when they see Rang De Basanti, then they will be like “Excuse me, Is PARROTISM the spelling for Patriotism?” but is that all it? And few others think only by joining in army you can show patriotism, only by telling everyone you are patriotic you show patriotism, only by pinning 2 Rs worth paper flag in your shirt pocket you show patriotism and if you don’t do all these you are not a patriot, you are not community conscious, you are selfish. These are the names I was given for not being one among them. But dudes where the hell is your consistency? After a day you still don’t stand for a red light in road, don’t pay your taxes properly, don’t conserve the natural resources, and don’t work sincerely in your work place. But I do all these things, I am not showing off, but this is patriotism to me. I don’t want to listen to what the actors say in Rang De Basanti and feel its effect in me for few days and get it wade away in time. Patriotism is what you should feel from deep inside your heart. If you feel drops of tears in your eyes, when you feel about the martyrs in Mumbai then you are patriotic, but don’t stop it with tears, show it in your action, the following are something I posted some two three years back to my friends as an oath to be taken on Independence day, let me recall it here;
- Pay your taxes properly;
- Don’t violate any Traffic rules and fight with those who try to violate;
- Don’t stand any human Rights violation before your eyes fight with them as well;
- Don’t waste food;
- Conserve natural resources;
- Do your duties to your neighbours properly.
Yes, I mean fight, I have fought with many in road for violating traffic rules, I have once punched a car with my ring giving it a scratch when he crossed red light, he got down and argued with me, I simply told him “I was crossing the road as its green light for me, you came in my way and my ring scratched your car by mistake, it’s because you violated red light and if you want to hurt me please go ahead, I don’t know whether I am stronger than you, if so I can hit you back, if I cannot I can receive what you give me, but remember I have noted down your number, I will not sleep until I see you are punished” he left silently, but I was able to argue because I knew law being a lawyer. So, I know you will ask me what about people who don’t know law, you still have lawyers like me to rescue you, whichever part of
So, here comes the end of part -1 of my emotions, WHERE MY COUNTRY IS GOING? But lot more to discuss. Let’s do it step by step. Remember be the CHANGE, we cannot wait anyone to bring us a change.
