Happy Freedom

Now that you are a free nation

It is up to you what you choose

The chaos, the famine, the massacre

Or the development, safety, the welfare

The unemployment, dirty politics, the corruption

Or the happiness, standard of living, the education

The fight at the borders or the peace within

Poking at other’s affairs or the self grooming

Yes, now you are a free human

It is up to you what you choose

You may be a traitor or a true patriot

You may curse your nation for every rot

You may criticize the policies, leaders, the nation

Or you may still ask for more and more freedom

You may put the caste, the language above the nation

You may betray your motherland in the name of religion

It is up to you what you choose

First keep yourself in others shoes

Aren’t you misusing your freedom

With overconfidence on your wisdom

Are there obvious signs of enslavement

The mental and intellectual entrapment

Just celebrate the holy spirit of freedom

It is your life, your character, your nation

Like others, I also thought that the life without cash would be hell.

Though living in a city like Bangalore, one may not have much of the trouble with his daily chores without cash, I thought it was worth trying the outing with family in this politically biased atmosphere.

The rising tensions between India and Pakistan had made most of the citizens from either country an expert analyst of the happening. Every nook and corner there are discussions happening as to what steps these countries should take next? The social media is over flooding with the posts or various nature. In the nutshell, those who support for the war are termed as patriots and courageous and those who talk about peace or restraint are blatantly designated as cowards. When Mr. Modi was to speak in the BJP meet at Kozikode, there were great expectations that he may say something aggressive to Pakistan. War optimists thought he may order for the air strikes or ask forces to enter PoK. But refuting all these, Mr. Modi gave the speech which could readily qualify him for the Nobel peace prize. He said that we need to fight poverty, unemployment and other social evils to which we are a victim. Let us see who wins first? Continue reading

The ethics of cultural ties

The recent controversy on the drama and film artists belonging to Pakistan has left the entertainment world split into two parts. People belonging to the bigger part are mostly of the opinion that Pakistani artists should be banned and the relatively smaller part put forth the argument that these artists should allow to continue their endeavors. The social and the political advocates are mostly on the former side and the latter part is sparingly inhabited by handful of so-called peace loving people or the cohorts. Continue reading

Boiled by the Pokemania, I also thought to explore my gaming cum exploration skills. My better half allowed as much to her surprise it was a mobile game to be played outdoors! I decided to explore my country to discover indigenous pokemons though prior to this I had heard only of Doreamon. I always wished I had that secret pocket so that I can save fuel and time with that anywhere door or freeze the stone pelting crowd or make the heavyweight politicians tiny with fascinating Doreamon gadgets. However, this Pokemon stuff looked different! Continue reading
