Lets tweet a revolution together!!!

After the recent stripping for patriotism campaign a new anti-corruption wave has  hit the country, it has became a fashion statement to shout, 'Mera neta chor hai'.
People are twitting day and night about the corruption and asking for support to Anna in his 40 hours fast (so far)
Anna Hazare is a brave man, he chose to go on a fast until death exactly after world cup and before the start of IPL. Yes, good for him, people would have to choose between India vs Pakistan and him, the choice won't be nice.
Corruption is a serious issue happening in India. There must be some sort of voodoo magic happening that is corrupting every person ruling the nation.
The Jan Lokpal bill proposed by Anna Hazare and some other publicity hogging social activist (don't blame me, I support Hazare don't ask me to support Sarabhai) is magical, amazing, incredible and dangerous.
If we look at the history of India, you will find many similarities in what is happening now and what has happened before.
First it was the British, they found a clean way of robbing the public, after a while one 70 year old man sat on fast until death and told them to get out of the country.
Obviously, we don't care if 100s of babies die everyday due to lack of medical treatment, we do not care that millions of adivasis die of hunger in a day, no one cares, but in India we do care if an old man sits on a fast until death. So the British and the Indians took heed to the old man and left the country peacefully (not exactly peacefully, but its ok) The people who replaced the brits where our men, people chosen by the masses to rule.
Yeah and rule they did, so what they siphoned off a million, no one payed attention to them until it was too late. So another 70 year old man abandoned his food for the sake of country. He asked for passage of a particular bi which millions are hoping will solve problem of corruption.
Now the funny part of Indian independence moment was, India was never free. Nope they were not, people did the same things that they did during the British rules, they had same old ways of teaching, they had same old methods of getting married. Infact most of these things worsened after the British left. (It must be something to do with white skin, or the fair and lovely won't make India a major market of their products, ever one wants to be white, no its not racist its sadist)
So the British decided to leave India and the public clapped for Gandhi baba who brought freedom.
No one bothered to peep in the document that was drafted by people. No. They kept portrait of Ambedkar in their house but no one read what he wrote. Why? Because they had elected people who would do this dirty stuff for them, and hope that somehow magically this day won't come.

You tend to respect the corrupt neta here. They atleast respected the constitution, because to break the law you need to study it first.
So now this man is supported by.a forum who demand installation of lokayukt. Their demands look similar to the political manifesto that the netas brush clean every now and then.
Some other people supporting jantar mantar are film stars who prefer to make film using black money but are fighting for corruption.
The long story short, I believe it would be wonderful that Jan lokpal is being setup, I just hope that in another 60 years we should not need any lokayukt to keep vigil on the lokayukt elected now.

  2. Rightly said. The most ridiculous part about the movement is the presence of Bollywood stars who don't bother paying up their taxes ever. Also Lalit Modi expressing support for the campaign when he himself was at the helm of manufacturing a scam named IPL. I don't doubt Anna Hazare's intentions much. But this comparison with Gandhi's Non-Cooperation movement is a bit too much. Let's see if this Jan Lokpal bill actually helps eradicating corruption. For now I have my doubts.

[Short Story] The Last Breath On Earth

A bug is a computer anomaly that is generated usually because of developer’s ignorance or environmental factors. The former is more prominent in computer programs. The term debugging means to find the cause for the bug and fixing it. The term debugging has a humorous origin. In 1947, Grace Murray Hopper was working on the Harvard University Mark II Aiken Relay Calculator. On the 9th of September, 1947, when the machine was experiencing problems, an investigation showed that there was a moth trapped between the points of Relay #70, in Panel F. The operators removed the moth and affixed it to the log. The word went out that they had "debugged" the machine and the term "debugging a computer program" was born. As the technology progresses it advances towards perfection and minimizes its flaws, unfortunately, this was not true for computers. The bugs and errors increased exponentially with the advancement of computers. What earlier was a mere moth trapped i

[Short Story] Return

He walked the old dusty road again after so many years. He remembered the place very well, so many memories etched into his mind. The old forgotten dusty lane, which was never urbanized by any political agenda. The same old little house which stood the test of time for so many years. He remembered his last walk on this road. He was trying to prevent the flood flowing from his nose and running his sore bumps with his free hand. He knew this return was uncalled for, unexpected but it was the one he had to make. He did not know how she would react, would she still be happy on seeing him or will she even recognize him? The crumbled paper clutched in his hand was his identity for so many years. It was a his ticket to existence, his own. The bell was in his reach now, he was a few seconds away in uncovering the truth. If he wanted to turn back, this was the last threshold. Funny thing was, even after so many days, his hand shivered at this stage. Would he face her? Face

Short Story: Parting ways

Funny thing, I just realized I never wrote a funny short story, which was quite surprising as Story is what I like writing and humor is what I do best (atleast I think so), but for some reason I do not write a short story with a fun thing and I wanted to know why, I realized writing humorous stories is a challenge that even I cannot take. Well, below is not some of my best work, I tried to stay focused but apparently couldn’t. No characters in this story are real, any resemblances to real characters is coincidental, I just put some Blogger friends names so I might get inspired but well… you tell me how it is. Sreya was driving all the way to her friends house. As always Shruti was in trouble. ‘He has left again, Sreya,’ said Shruti between sob, ‘it was so obvious since beginning, he as just messing around. Its over girl, its over. I have nothing else to do now.’
