We love democracy!

Democracy gives us the right to shout, to abuse, to fight like hooligans, to display the traits more common to the homo erectus.

This is not about the common man. It's about the ones we elect to govern us. This one from the corporators on the city council of Delhi. The city elders so to say. Minor disagreements mushroomed into a battle where kicks and punches were traded like low price commodities - in high volume. Abuses were hurtled in all directions and in keeping with female equality - the fairer gender was not spared it's fair share.

So, can we (aka common folks) be different?

Maybe I've seen hindi films, one too many. But I am so tempted to use force and exterminate the whole load of them. It'd be a cathartic experience. But then again - there'd be no difference between me and them, then.

So what solution do we have?

Hmmm.... I'd say we go in for a new crop, not necessarily idealists, but folks who've been around, worked like normal folks, and experienced pain.

The outlook for the future.
India is shining - quite brightly!

I see flames!!!

The stuff we should not forget!!!

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
