I Really Do Not Write A Movie Review (Fiction)

I really do not write a movie review but then it is about aliens. Aliens, I looked for them around and they were not hard to find. There was once a narrow road between govt. apartments and an old age home where the passers by were usually office goers, seldom women and young. Yet since it leads to a temple, I was bound to it and passing by but an old woman inmate avoids my glances.

Years later, I understood about the nature of the building and its services. I went on to ask permission to create a Facebook group and a charity portal from Social Welfare society under whose aegis the building and its inmates were.

They showed the monthly activities arranged for them, their monthly expenses such as issue of library books, medical checkups, etc. They told me that they are properly looked after but if I still feel the need, I can go ahead with my plan.

I was fussed over a bad delivery from a well-known online supermart. I went to consumer redressal forum to become a member to undergo a course to become an activist. I wanted to raise a social awareness about the consumer rights. However, I found that the society has long been inactive and evicted from the place. I then went to district courts and was given proper consumer dispute forms and directed to follow the procedures. I filled and later got dues because of all damages I suffered due to negligence of online supermart.

I felt however, a year was long enough and if anyone did wrong here and brought much mental anguish was me. There was no consolation for this from the courts. I was indifferent or alien to myself.

Neelam Dadhwal: This discussion is leading towards right direction and I am really happy about this.

Yes, I believe that the believers/followers of a certain religion add their laws and external concepts to support/practice what their religion is truly asking them to do. That is why many religions fade away and/or these laws seems discomforting over long time because everyone has a learning curve and also circumstances change.

To decide which law should be prevalent today can be done with proper discussion, insights into the religion, cultural past and bringing up valid point to support or nullify it.

Number of events occurred around me, still when I was young without a job or a responsibility to own one. I watched a colony where the laborers were living a horrifying life with open sewerage and no basic utilities. But eventually, the colony was lifted and the laborers were given shelter under various schemes.

I was witness to all the apathy but felt despite all the changes and of government, I am an alien in bringing this impact. I felt I was looking for aliens but ended up being an alien myself.

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…
