The Political Tamasha

The Political Tamasha


Time has changed, time is changing and time will change; things also change according to it but I prefer they change for the positiveness, for the good. Modi government's show on completing 2 years in power was loaded with Bollywood stars and cabinet ministers. ' Ek Naye Subah (A New Dawn) as it was called kept public broadcasting channel busy for the whole day in self praise of the government ,if you have done something you pat your back for it and wanted everybody to do the same but why at the cost of public money. My problem lies in the expenditure and the grandness of the whole event.

Firstly the day long telethon on DD channels devoid viewers from choice to watch any other thing on television. Secondly the front page ads on all national and regional daily newspapers would have cost government around millions, we the people have no access to the figures of that government expenditure. Lastly I believe that if you have done something for the people they will know it for the change in their living or working condition. In that case a mere one or two hour show on government achievements would be enough to tell the people about the source of change in their life. Such shows are acting like an expensive carpet which his hiding the tattered condition of the floor beneath it. 

The drought condition in around sixteen states is not hidden from anybody, farmers are committing suicide on daily basis for unable to pay their debts, banks lending power have decreased due to increase in bad loan amounts, local businesses are on all time low, employment generation in last two years is zero, exports have reduced to negligible, in such a situation government is celebrating its achievements which some believe is to calm down unrest in people by showing little successes as huge achievements. Some experts also raises questions on what they called their successes like Jan Dhan Yojna which have more zero balance accounts than operating ones, Digital India which is only looks a dream when we can't even solve the call drop problem. 

Similarly Make In India facing competition from China and there are little foreign companies interested in setting up factories in India after seeing the effect of Jat Agitation in Haryana. Skill India has failed because government is unable to generate employment for people they have trained, Start Up India has slow progress and companies like Ringing Bell which have not given a single phone yet at Rs 501 have yet to get common man's confidence. So my advice to Mr Modi is work for India and its people and then your work will speak for you without you taking pain to remind us what you have done in all these years. Till next post God Bless India.

  2. There are so many things that the Government could have done rather than losing time in non-sensical beef tamasha. PM Modi should look inward and help farmers, boost growth and break Bharat-India divide. High time to take things in his hands. Even this 7 per cent growth they are stamping the 56 inch chest is debatable!

  3. while I agree that the government has not kept most promises what I find sad is that the public is willing to condone the Congress for every wrong doing ( infact I personally believe that Indian politics is what it is because of the Congress - and you cannot deny that they have dominated our society for over 50 years now) and we are willing to forgive them but we just don't tolerate anything from the Modi govt. What is naming every road after MK Gandhi, every bridge after Rajiv Gandhi, every airport after Nehru, every college after any Gandhi or Nehru nothing other than sycophancy and patting the Congress on the back?
    What has been the curse of this country cannot be rid of in just two years....

    1. Modi government is more into verbal doing than actually doing things on ground, the figure the present for GDP or electrification of villages have found to be manipulative, moreover the environment of hatred created by the BJP/RSS has divided the country and such environment will never lead to development. Congress has received what they deserved in 2014 elections now its Modi's turn to prove himself rather than to curse Congress for next three years.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
