The Douchebaggery of KCR and his muppets

If you’re from India, and know that there’s a ‘Separate Telangana‘ agitation going on, you’d know about a city by name Hyderabad. I live in this city. It used to be the capital of the Deccan region earlier, and is now the capital of the state Andhra Pradesh.

In the recent times, the struggle for a separate state of Telangana has been hyped up by opportunists and corrupt people like KCR, and the BJP. And, to add to that, a certain Mr. Kodandaram. These people together organize rallies, strikes, bandhs, you name it, they do it. They do everything and anything that can disrupt the peaceful life that Hyderabad and its residents from various places have been used to. And they’ve been doing that for the past two years

In the name of peaceful agitations, these rogues have been encouraging poor youth to commit suicide in the name of separate state, families of whom are later compensated. Then, these assholes also destroy public property, and during a recent fortnight long strike and bandhs, nearly Rs. 3300 worth business was effected.

Why are they doing this?

Because they want to remain relevant in the political circles, and to come to power.

For their selfish and evil motives, these rascals have been playing around with poor people, destroying public property, effecting the academic schedules, and what not.

But more than anything else, they have tarnished the brand that Hyderabad is. Or was.

Let’s not get blinded by these politicians.


Lets Not Turn This Anti-Corruption Movement Into A Circus

Manmohan Singh, current prime minister of India.

India is currently in a crisis. Not that the crisis has fallen upon the country all of a sudden. It is a result of various factors, accumulating over the years. Corruption is being highlighted as the main issue, and yes, it is an issue. People are coming out in the open, supporting the Anna ‘Anti Corruption Crusade’ Hazare. The man deserves respect. I cannot express it. Words are failing me. But… with this, come the opportunists. Like Baba Ramdev. Like Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. And a chance to the psychopaths to abuse the Prime Minister.

Baba Ramdev and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar are both Hindu religious teachers. Baba Ramdev… the coward he is, he escaped arrest by dressing as a woman. He wants to enter into politics. He is corrupt, and he, wants to save his arse, and is using this opportunity.

The Anna camp, on the other side… all they are demanding is… having their version of Jan Lokpal Bill tabled in the Parliament. Fair demand. The government opposed to it. Irate citizens took to Social Media to vent their ire. They abused the Prime Minister. And that is what propelled me to blog about it. Tell me, what are you achieving by abusing a PM? You are only creating a bad impression about a man who you can only dream to be like.

If Indians remember, he is the person who quietly changed the face of India. And India is, in a way, less corrupt, because of the same man. The Industrial Policy Resolution, 1991, changed the way the world looked at India. Wait. There’s a very recent incident. India, 20 years back, had to borrow an amount from International Monetary Fund, to avert a crisis. Our Balance of Payments were not balanced at all. Circa 20 years, we donated a whopping $2 Billion to the IMF to fund bailouts in Europe. A donation from a developing nation to a union of developed nation – pretty much says it all. We have arrived. And the credit goes to Manmohan Singh for that. Others played their part too, but his role was pivotal, as the Finance Minister in 1991.

Coming back, the irate citizens, are abusing such a man. Look, people, he is not really powerful. He has a government to run, ensuring there isn’t chaos. He has a coalition to respect, so that the government keeps running and there is some sort of order in the country. Sure, the time is running out, but he will do it. Sooner or later. If he doesn’t, someone else will. But at the moment, he needs to make sure the country doesn’t fall apart – to opportunists like Ramdev. He needs to make sure it doesn’t fall in wrong hands. He is doing a splendid job. You abusers, aren’t. I bet, you are more corrupt than him. I know you download torrents. You use cracked stuff. And that is also corruption. First put your own house in order, and then talk about others.

Coming back to Anna Hazare camps’ demands – absolutely fair. Absolutely. The government needs to table it in the parliament. It should. Corruption is rampant in India, and there is no hiding about it. But well… all I ask is, be sensible. Be civilized, people. Don’t do anything that harms the image of the country. Look at what happened in the UK. You wouldn’t want that to happen. Place your demands, you have every right to, but, be a man. A man of your words. And logical. Practical, too.

Swami Ramdev is a sham, and I don’t support him. Anna Hazare, you have all my support. May better sense prevail.

PS: The ones who are abusing the PM, they should read this – Industrial Policy 1991

Do you celebrate your friendship today?

So, today is Friendship day. And as expected, I got shit loads of messages, got tagged in some “I don’t know much about him” ‘s album on Facebook, got tons of notifications, too. And I ‘hope’ you had been remembered as much or more than I was.

Well, here’s a question – do you think it is ok that your so-called friends remember you ‘only’ today? Friendship day apart, is it ok if your friends remember you once a year?

I haven’t replied to any one of those wishes yet. I want to prove a point – only wishing someone on a particular day does not make you a friend. It is being honest that does. Doing so makes me feel it is all hollow. That the only thing that keeps us together is one day. Yes, one single day, out of the 365 days. Worth it? No. Not to me, certainly. True friends will find it out, the others, they’ll keep wishing you year after year.

Wishing just for the sake of it… stupidity.
