Here is a 'true' post.
In the sense that, unlike the others, this is something I am posting for my satisfaction.
Right now, I am pretty ashamed of my country.
Yes. You read that right. It all started when we failed to look after a certain female writer from a neighboring country, all in the name of petty, petty vote bank politics. Where is that 'Indian' pride gone now ?
I remember the following shloka from sanskrit class which goes:
"Athiti devo bhava"
which means that a guest is equivalent to god. Apparantly we do not practise what we preach. Maybe we just like sounding all eastern and old world.
Then there is M.F Hussain who is forced to live in a self-imposed exile. When did we become Iran ?
Secular ? My ass!
Free speech ? My ass!
I do give it credit for the sole fact that I can write this sort of a thing freely. I'd hate to live in China.
Which brings us to another point of contention.
The whole world is afraid of China isn't it ?
We have the '62 war to remind us all too well.
Too bad Tibet has no oil.
what is this, Communo-Fascism now ?
I'd boycott the Olympics this time round if I were given a choice.
P.S If anyone asks, you do not know where I am, alright ?
Watching 'Trainwreck, My life as an idoit' right now.
