Fresh Cliché of New Season!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first month of every year starts with a newness and a freshness in your ideas but as the time passes, you feel that the new and the fresh is only the calendar, other things are as usual as they were a few days back.

If you analyze the first month of the Year 2011, for an instance, you will feel the depth of the words said above. It's nothing emotional to say, “there is nothing new”, its quite practical. It's all upon us, to take it emotionally or practically. In fact, about any issue, we are the ones who can choose either approach -- emotional or practical -- to deal with it. Which one is to apply, is really a matter of situation around us.

Speaking practically, the month of January was absolutely cold for the North Indians in terms of natural whether. As far as political whether is concerned, the activities were actually hot. All the attempts made by the Government to take the inflation down have gone into vain. Reserve Bank of India has hiked repo and reverse repo rates to rein the mounting inflation. Having been already trapped by tight liquidity situation, India's banking sector has got another reason to raise lending rates, and this time, it is not in a mood to give another rise in deposit rates that were hiked earlier this month.

On the other hand, opposition has taken on the Government on the issue of inflation. Onion field has again become a hot spot to play politics. General public has been practically trapped by inflation, and emotionally touched with onion. Again it depends, people to people and situation to situation, which one to take, practical or emotional approach, inflation or onion issue.

Well, which idea is new and fresh. Inflation is not the first experience of its kind for us as Indians and we are not the only ones who are going through it at this moment. Onion is not a newly-born issue for the country, but it has shown many a colors in the past years. Then, where is the freshness and newness of this season?

See the calender of this year, it's undoubtedly fresh and new.

कल्पना और वास्तविकता

कितना स्वच्छन्द, कितना उन्मुक्त था वह आकाश.

सपने तैरते थे, हजारों लाखों की संख्या में.

जैसे कि कल्पनाओं को पर लग गए हों.

धीरे-2 आकाश कुछ छोटा हुआ,

कल्पनाओं को भी अनुभव हुआ,

कि उनके आकाश की भी कुछ सीमा है.

अब वे भी कुछ बड़ी हो गई हैं,

तभी जगह कुछ छोटी पड़ी है.

फिर एक वक्त और आया,

जब कल्पना की भेंट वास्तविकता से हुई.

वास्तविकता का धरातल,

कल्पना को बार-2 खींचता,

अपनी तरफ,

और वो होना चाहती,

पहले की तरह स्वच्छन्द,

बस तभी से कल्पना और वास्तविकता में जंग छिड़ी है,

और दोनों ही धरातल पर बेसुध-सी पड़ी हैं...

तुम जो मिल जाते...

अचानक याद आ गयी तुम्हारी,

जब देखा एक बिलकुल तुम जैसी,

हाँ, बिलकुल तुम जैसी को.

वो भी तुम्हारी तरह ही मुस्कुरा रही थी,

ठिठक गया मैं भी एक पल को,

...जैसे लगा कि तुम वापस आ गयी हो,

फिर देखा कि वो तुम नहीं कोई और है,

और ये मेरी जिंदगी का दूसरा दौर है....

Corruption- The Blood Sucking Leech

When we talk about corruption it doesn't only mean taking bribe. corruption includes a whole lot of things within it's fold. When the moral of an individual is gone corruption intrudes. Well in the recent past we have seen an overflowing GDP never achieved before. great is our economist mastero Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who led the GDP to rise from ground to roof, reached up to sky would really be an exaggeration. However this GDP bound economic growth of the country brought many imminent leaders (Politicians) from all over the world to our doorsteps. What for, have you ever thought what compelled the strongest person of the earth say ' JAI HIND' . The person who publicized himself as the icon of change is now in serious trouble as his country is going through deep economic recession. So someone was at our door steps to beg and we being indians emerging from great cultural background could not refuse. Hmm...this really incites me and with proud I pat my back. But invain when I think about 2-G, CWG, Adarsh scam, etc,.

Corruption is that intruder, who with it's attractiveness and charisma can make you blind and fall in it's trap. So what if Raja and kalmadi are being blamed for the charges of corruption, they too are a victim of this sexy intruder. How can someone allege only them, when the whole system is corrupt. It's like a blood sucking leech which can't be removed by salt, because yet now no such salt is available on the market. Our culture ridden society has rapidly moved to the corruption ridden society. Voluminous sums of money have been involved in such scams which have not been consumed by any individaul but the whole section working for the purpose. Does it matter do people? Why are we making such a hue and cry on the inflation and the price rise and are quite on the matter of punishing the corrupts. The simple reason is we are one among them, among the blood sucking leech's. Don't the readers think this price is all because of these fradulent activities which claimed the hard earned money of the lower and middle section of the society.

Anyways, whenever, whereever you thought ill for others and tried to harm them you were not only being selfish but corrupt too. What conclusion can be drawn from such a boring discussion is that people will never speak against any atrocities being inflicted on them, simply because it doesn't matter to them. They have enough of blood and don't mind loosing some. concludingly, it doesn't matter because they don't care whatsoever.
