How True.. (email forward edition)
The irony of our times. This is somewhat an eye-opener. We pretty much know all of this. But one more thing I know, is that Dr. Manmohan Singh is either never going to read this letter (at end of post), or is going to read it and just forget about it. I personally cannot blame him. Come on, it’s not that he is the PM or something.
Oh wait.. He is the PM.. Damn. OK, but if he can act, why isn’t he acting (or is he ?? pun intended) ? He does act sad for the poeple who died and their families. An ex-gratia here and there has been announced(or is there ?) But wait, the killers are still roaming free, and they’re within our reach. I’ll tell you why.
Didn’t we just spend hundreds of crores of rupees in the last few decades test-firing missiles and other stuff ?? Oh, and we just reached the moon on Children’s Day, and the ISRO chief gladly presented the event as a gift to children in India, out of which a few million will die because of hunger this year, like every other year. OK so getting back to the point, why did we test fire those missiles ?? If even a fraction of that money was given to the intelligence agencies … Wait, we don’t have intelligence agencies. Damn Again.. It really seems there’s no way out of this mess. Those “terrorists” will train for a couple of years more and they’ll be back. Take it from me. Two years from now. People will die. Politicians will have a couple of funerals in their have-to-do-or-else-it-wont-look-good list. Some more directors will tour the place, for ideas about their next mega-flop (seriously what’s up with the creativity of Indian movies.. The only good ones are ripped off from English movies).Pakistan will deny. They’ll be still asking for evidence of 26/11. And a few lakhs will be given to the kin of those dead. And this time, I’ll tell you what won’t happen. There won’t be foreigners killer. None of the other nations will take any interest. They’ll condemn the happenings and ask us to join hands in the fight towards terror. And, people will forget, as with the Sikh riots, 93 blasts..
Prior to the Mumbai attact, Everything was known. The authorities had been informed, but they failed to stop 10 men. However, after all this, if we can use some of our military strength against targeted areas in Pakistan, the politicians become all psycho about the concept of war and the bloody 70 year olds are just too frail to fight. And it’s not that they’ll go fight, it’s the jawans. The ideas in the heads of these politicians are as old as they are. They are still living in the 20th century.
Frankly, I don’t see this stopping, unless something is done today.
And some charming people, on reading this, will say “Polticians are voted into their seats by you, the people”.
We, the people ?? Seriously ? I’m above 18 now, and I DONT PLAN TO VOTE. That’s it. Who should I vote for huh ? The current government ?? Or the BJP with the long list of corrupt criminals they have in their ranks. Or the Left ?? Think again. People DO NOT VOTE. PUPPETS DO. Anyone who has ever voted has been brainwashed into believing things. And that’s what illusionists do.
Look around you. What do you see ? Flyovers ? Airports ? Roads ? No… It’s all an illusion. It’s all that was leftover from going into the politician’s pockets. It’s just leftovers. Just like those you throw away into the garbage. Look back and think, how do the people who eat those leftovers of yours feel ? Unfortunate ? Do they curse fate ? NO WAY. They’re happy that someone actually cooked something more than what was needed to fill their stomachs. That’s what we are. All of us. Just eating the leftovers.
So, all bigshot companies (especially the tea makers), if you’re ever going to make an advertisement encouraging voting, don’t make the guy who is spreading this message look so intelligent and act like he’s the one who knows all. A recent ad campaign by a well known tea company does just that. That guy, says “Agar Aap Vote Nahi Kar Rahe Ho. Toh Aap So Rahe Ho” (Translates to : If you don’t vote, you’re sleeping) . You know what Big Guy, sometimes it’s better to sleep than vote.
Anyway, here’s a forward which I wanted to post, but ended up writing a huge post myself. I don’t know who is the author of this letter, but do enjoy his respect for the PM. Because I don’t have it.
