Post Election Results 2014

Our expectations from the newest Prime Minister of India would be of curtailing price hike for petrol, cooking gas, taxes, loans and in general commodities price. The list is endless. Now, before the seat could be occupied, let shed light on overnight increase in the price of milk by astronomical of Rs 10 in Punjab.

Because of this, autowallahs, street vendors, local vegetable vendors have on their whim increased the prices of fruits and vegetables to tally with that in northern sectors of Chandigarh. (The northern sectors are mostly silent, the demand is less.)

I can hear the hue and cry of parents who are now pressuring their wards to take up part-time jobs in addition to their studies to meet personal expenses. Last day, most of them were glued to the screen at most places. I have seen not such interest except during telecast of cricket, then I do not even expect any work done.

Though these news were  putting them enthusiastically for next important chore in their life. The only atmosphere in the city was of celebration of popular mandate and stably elected government. The food courts were choc-a-bloc with people or office-goers during lunch break busy with their daily choice of lunch.

Pastries, cakes, sweet were replaced by popular sweet dish from the shop which is often used in surplus on such occasion. At Sindhis, people were trying rasmalai then at Gopal, the popular choice was coconut barfi.

Heated debates and discussions over the future state of our country were replaced by a general acceptance that the change is there. Starting out any work at this time became a little laid back with almost everyone giving it length of a day to rest a little. After all, the days ahead are all about the work. At this rate, we usher into next timeline of democracy. 

We wish the coming years will be constructive and peaceful. We thank Mr. Narendra Modi and BJP for working hard to create a conclusive government.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…

Least Minimal Good for Better Future

We are out, now. In places, all over city, or country. We often notice when we are outside, how civic amenities are making life feasible. Five years back, it was not the case. There were definite office and public hours. Mobiles made communication possible, yet services were limited. One could not get proper bedding and food at hotels.

Even now, some most popular tourist spots have poor accommodation infrastructure. If the weather would unpredictable, we were often stranded in traffic. Some travel spots were limited to boys/men only. Transport was not superior as now when we can hire a cab to any location.

When the time has changed now, don't we find ourselves pointing out faults in people, system and places. Sometimes pinches us, like sight of garbage, movement of animals, display of election campaigns and ads.

I concur nothing can change by our will but we can change a little that can help inculcate our attitude and expectations from others.

We should contribute a little towards ge…
