My Disgust (not Hate) grows

I used to like him for his oratorical skill, though I never liked him from the beginning, but now it just disgusts me. I'd like to repeat what I said before: "There are two main holes in a man's body - one to ingest and another to discreet. If you don't know how to let out your shit out of the relevant hole, you better shut both the holes and die out of constipation." Sorry for my harsh words but I very much mean it. Come 2019 elections and I'm going to punch NOTA again!

Nationalism and our Martyrs - Part 2

There's so many people talking about, and so much of media attention towards one stupid guy who blabbered something and kept to his ego.

People and media equally reacted in the name of nationalism!

Excuse me but there was someone who was dragged out and beaten to death and his son beaten to pulp, all for just eating beef in this country!

It's an old story now but has there been any action taken about this? People who were associated with this incident were arrested as well. But is that the end of it? People in some parts of this country are still reluctant to say the word 'beef'!

It's pathetic that one cannot eat something of his choice in this supposed-to-be-free and independent country without getting threatened for life.

My beloved border-men, you're not protecting the borders of India but the borders of a democratic, republic and secular India, but unfortunately this is what's happening in this country that you're giving away your lives for.

And so…

Nationalism and our Martyrs!

There's been a lot of 'Nationalist' propaganda doing the rounds recently like never before. Indians who have realised their nationalism previously only when there was an India Vs Pakistan cricket match live on TV have begun to talk a lot about nationalistic fervour and pride, thanks to Kanhaiya Kumar and the lot. Jai Hind!

My only question is that is this the Indo-Pak (read as Hindu Vs Muslim, or UPA Vs UDF) match blown up in a big way or are we 'Indians' really so nationalistic?

I saw a post of Rahul Gandhi's Degree Certificate from the Cambridge University doing the rounds in FB with some ridiculous comments. But does at least our Education Minister (Smriti Irani) has such a degree certificate, or at least a degree certificate to show us, forget the other top ranked ministers?

Now, I'm not a Congress or a BJP or an AAP supporter. I punched NOTA in the last election and will continue to do so until I see someone who's truly worthy enough as a candidat…

Safety is an 'Optional Feature' for Indians!

A car for yourself is an inexcusable Indian dream and I'm not devoid of it either. Though I don't have the money enough to own one yet, I still keep drooling over the various models of the various makes that comes out every other month. I browse through their brochures, compare features of each make, stick pics of my favourites on my wall...

And then I came across this one ad and it struck me very hard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCjVS_-6hYs

Pedestrian airbags! Wow!

And in India, we still have cars with passenger airbags as an 'Optional Feature' for which we'll have to shell out a few more 1000 INRs.

I rechecked all the brochures in my collection again and the finding was quite revealing and shocking. Basic safety features like ABS, passenger airbags etc. are 'optional' with many of the brands that are sold here, and for which we have to shell out a few more of our hard earned money! How can safety be an 'Option'?

I'm not targeting at any …
