Its a SHAME!!

"Blast hua, dhuaan uttha, shor macha, ab to ye normal si baat hai... ab darr nahin lagta, ye to hona hi hai, ye to hota hi hai, ye to hota hi rahega!!" -- A shopkeeper, whose shop in GK-1 market was one of those affected by the latest blasts that happened in delhi!!

What should I say more? This indeed is shameful, for we are talking about a posh market in New Delhi, the capital city of a country that boasts itself as the next "superpower of the world"!! But unfortunately, this is the grim and sad reality, life has lost its value in this country, where superficial things have become more important for the political class, then the well being of its people! Where blasts have become more frequent then the public transport buses!! Where people no longer look upto the leaders to be strong enough to stop rowdiness in the country, leave alone terrorism! Where any a*****e can get up, decide and bring the whole country to standstill, and the government will keep on sleeping!! Where, leaders are more consumed by a film actors statements, and reaction to those then to plight of the commoner, not having access to bare basics!! Where the media is busier by the day, looking into everything from magic tricks, to miracles, to non existent threat to mankind, to what not!!! Where the ministers can be awarded honours for exemplary courage they display in being extremely callous to the voters plights!! Where, the day starts and ends with prayers, as only some superpower beyond knows how this country is still running!!

The list is endless, but how does it help? No one, just no one is going to listen, it doesnt matter to them!! Some lives dont count in this country of a billion plus to these politicians, thats a vote less from the total, doesnt change the percent dynamics! Let them sleep, let them jet set on world visits, let them stuff up their bank accounts with as much as they can from the public money, let them keep on fighting for the insignificant issues, let them enjoy the luxuries of high office, let them have the courage to still face the nation with the shameless repetition of same old statements, they have so mercilessly mugged up all this while, let them be on their path of nirvana from the tyrannies of life of common man!!

But hey, let us come out of the slumber, let us all not repeat the statement I started off with!! This cant be a routine normal thing, this has to end, and this should end now! But how, let us work towards it, lets stop relying on these bunch of fools who call us our representatives, lets take the charge, and try to change a few things?

I propose a no confidence motion against all our current leaders, part of government, or out of it!
