Inglorious Bastards!!

General Politics World Hyderabad India Life | By Aditya | 2012 Trackbacks (0) Comments (1)   

From the time I was in school, I have been hearing all around me, people calling my generation - the next generation, the future citizens of India, the generation which will drive India into the next phase of its development, the citizens who will see a developed India and the brightest citizens yet of our beloved India.

Most of these titles and ranks were given just to get more applause in school assemblies and functions. They were used more for the appeal than the actual facts the words bear. These words make sense but have no weight in meaning.

As I look at school going children today, I see that the same stories, the same titles and ranks keep repeating themselves. I think to myself - Are we being shepherded by scheming politicians and corrupt businessmen into a place of no return?

Students don't care what they study as long as they get good marks and please their parents and teachers.

Teachers don't care what they teach students as long as they get paid and stay happy.

Parents don't care what their children study as long as they get good marks and they can proudly and happily trod in the neighborhood.

Society doesn't care what children study or what their parents think as long as they stay good children who go to school and their parents pay their loans and taxes.

Governments don't care what their subjects do as long as the government is stable and faces no threat.

In this vicious chain of events, we see one recurring pattern - NO ONE CARES!!

No one cares if our country houses the largest population of poor people.
No one cares if 30 farmers a day commit suicide.
No one cares if politicians stash humungous amounts of money from corruption.
No one cares if our country is going to the dogs.
But everyone cares if their share of the pie is affected.

Such hypocritical bastards we have become that we hardly care what our fore-fathers dreamed of and died for to give us our share of freedom and liberty.

Children should be made to understand what our country needs and why their education will have a profound influence on the future prospects of our country's growth. But all we teach and are taught is how to evade the law, circumvent it or corrupt it further.

All our ethics classes and moral science classes have already faded away into things of the past. Now the last ray of hope is that prominent people in society will influence people to at least stay on the righteous path a little longer.

I know people will comment that all these sound good on blog posts, but to carry over and translate these ideas and philosophies into actions is improbable and never certain... Well to them I say this - There's no certainty — only opportunity.

 



I Hate Women's Day!

The very concept of women's day sickens me. I mean half the population (Three and a half billion people) are women...So it’s appalling that we should be celebrating a day to honor their existence and their value.

I mean no disrespect to any woman; it’s just that humanity as a social order is made to celebrate a day honoring half of humanity’s value and place in society is what shocks me.

For centuries women were oppressed, tortured and are still looked as a burden and a trouble by some people and cultures.  The fact that men had relegated women to kitchens and bedrooms is an act of utter disgrace.

Every time we read that a woman has done a remarkable and noteworthy achievement I feel that society is the one which builds the gap between the sexes. Accomplishments of women must be more common, more frequent and a normal thing – and be made so redundant and ordinary that society becomes more equal than male dominated.

My sister is one person, out of many, who has instilled confidence in me that women will one day not just be equal to men but also dominate society in most fields. I would love to see a day when woman shape the course of the future – I bet it wouldn’t be as loud as what we men have brought onto humanity.

Well anyways as I said I won’t wish you a Happy Women’s Day… But I wish all the women on the planet every success and happiness in all your wonderful endeavors.
