bloggin doesn't mean one need to comeup with something everyday in his/her virtual space..personally, i believe its more like a medium to air ones views, thoughts, feelings that one might not be able to express in person..no human being will nor can ever express all his views in person...the human mind and heart are ever fertile grounds for personal feelings that are quite similar to waves in a ocean..waves that never tire nor rest...

Where is Equality???

kodi_kura | 1 August 2005, 10:16am

Living in a foreign land one feels proud when the foreign press praises his country as "The greatest Democracy". Well, democracy is equality and no discrimination but looking back do we have that?? Reservations , Taxation policies ..nah these Democray then seems to be a mere word.
It has been more than 50 years that since the constitution was written. Reservations were needed then since most of the people below the poverty line belonged to the backward classes. But today does this justification hold good? How many people are misusing this reservations?
Now congress back in state and centre (apart from good politicians like Sri Dr.Manmohan Singh etc) one can feel the increase in minority politics (reservations based on a religion in AP). Does this mean there are no economically backward people in other religions? Sticking to reservations based on the caste means only economically backward belong to particular caste?
No...I do not think so...There is an MP/MLA who is from backward class and still wants to use reservation for getting his child admitted into IITs/IIMs...A labourer or poor farmer from forward caste is unable to provide necessary coaching to his kids to compete with his peers to get into IITs/IIM's. Well even a diamond needs to be polished to be valued...how can we justify deprieving one from coaching based on caste??? The India Inc. is against this kind of reservations but i'm sure they'll not oppose to reservations based on economical status rather than caste. Reservation is not unknown to the developed countries in west but they target them for economically backward people. Incidentally, I belong to a backward community and made full use of reservation until I reached my voting age. But being a staunch supporter of reservations based on economical background rather than caste just want ot put forth my views. Its quite disheartening to hear that lot of bright students (from economically backward background) are being deprieved of oppurtunites...put in similar views in comments to an article published in online edition of indian express opposing India Inc. move against caste based reservations but they were never posted....no doubt blogs are the platform for these views...
Appreciate any comments or your views on this...

Shuru Ayyindi - The sojourn begins

kodi_kura | 28 July 2005, 2:16pm

Hmmm...first jab at blogs??? wondering why the procrastination in adapting them to capture the flow of thoughts??no worries..the start is important and everything will roll...where is the begining???
The wet afternoon on 19 Aug at King Koti hospital?? the dawn of 14 Aug when a fresh grad took a flight to the land of oppurtunites??today working backwords??
Good 'The land of Oppurtunites' is apt and there begins the soujourn (will complete 6 years of this sojourn on Aug 14)...Took the Air-india flight from Hyd to Phila via the city then called Bombay, with an intention to never return back except for brief vacations every couple of years...surprisingly, it took no more than 2 days to decide it is indeed a sojourn to the 'Land of Oppurtunity'. Stuck to the guns till date but apprehensive about holding the fort after the scheduled transition in dec'05.

Last Oct trip to hyd was full of surprises, with an equal measure of pleasant and embarassing ones. Prioritizing the pleasant first, it would be redundant to state " things have changed a lot in Hyd". Gone are the days of galli cricket, golilu, lingoccha and landori and kids are occupied with pokemons or the snow worlds. A closer look under the covers revealed the old hyerabadi culture "ghar kane gup chup bandi", " galli mula meedha irani chai cafe" or the "Tank bund pe TPgiri". It was neither nostalgic nor sentimental but a hydbadi will appreciate what these mean...On the embarassing note, ventured into unchartered territories owing to parental obligations. Oppurtune decision on the issue averted a fiasco lifting up spirits of all the folks, specifically my parents. This and the events following it set the transition to dec. Itsn't true that I'm kind of wary about the transition but definitely apprehensive about isolation from camaraderie might lead to solitude. Also, the transition marks the end of individualism and fosters togetherness.
The earlier perception of 'a sojourn to Land of oppurtunites' may/may-not hold good as it will either be super imposed by the better-half's perception or will super-impose the better-halfs perception or will settle on a common ground...The transition is inevitable and that puts me in a catch-22 situation...apun ki basha mein " kya kare kya na kare..."
