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.


  1. hey 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.

    Good thinking Sid..

    He is getting good response all across india..lets see what happens..!!!

    Hw r u these days..have u been here in pune?

  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.

  3. 'a particular bi' ?? you meant 'bill??

  4. rightly said, one has to think about it.. tweet or do anything they wish but..... we have to take action like this..

    Someone is Special

The moaning of life #2 Childhood Trauma

The entire shark family is out for a hunt, and the little fish are running for their life. We get to cheer as the Baby Shark does Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo with his family, calling on the family - extended family and sometimes robots on the 'hunt' because your offspring decides that that is the one song they want you to play or a tantrum follows. Many of you will say it's not the content but the catchy tune that draws the babies towards the nonsequential song, but it's more than that. It's the sheer repeatedness that draws your angst towards the piece. And YouTube provides the music based on how much time you want your baby to be engaged to it. You have a 60+ minute version and a 120+ minute version. The same shark family going out on the same hunt. And it's not just the Shark family. Weirdly, baby JJ and his family sing random songs, go on a holiday and even increase the family. I am talking about Cocomelon, which has arrived in your child's life as he murmurs t

Short Story: Ginger Chai

This is my first attempt for writing a love story, which I am really bad at. Mani Padma (from Ginger Chai ) challenged me to write a love story a few days ago, it is not a real great read, but a little feeble attempt to take a taste in this genre. Please give your honest opinion… Cheers, Sid. *fingers crossed* Breathe in. Breathe out. Damm, this is so easy when you are not tensed. Why is this clerk talking so much time. ‘Will you hurry up?’ I asked the clerk. My finger nails were tapping the counter in excitement. My name is Shailaja, 30, single and employed, in short a perfect girl for the aunties, mammies to constantly remind me that my days are waning out, that I have to find someone before it is impossible for them to. It is not that I don’t want to get married, but I should get some proper match, isn’t it? All they show me is either short, tall, long nose, meaning some imperfection in some way or the other. I am not at all hopeless romantic and I am definitely not goin

We used to build civilizations. Now we build shopping malls.

The human evolution is a constant race against boredom, men have for generations tried to overcome boredom is many ways possible. In olden days, they got bored, they build civilizations, big massive civilizations. The ancient Egyptians had pyramids, the Babylon build the hanging garden for people to hang out. People from far and wide come to visit the Taj Mahal, praising its divine beauty, not knowing that it was build after the wife died, thus partly in guilt. Rome was not build in a day, indication they were super bored. Then came the great barbarian evolution and they started raiding cities. Don't forget Atila the Hun who constantly attacked cities whenever he got free time. Alexander was super bored and he decided to conquer the entire world, but while these men where attacking cities and building civilizations, the women where thrown into a abyss of impending boredom. What would Mrs. Atila do when her husband was busy attacking Rome? Or What would the wives of the
