Nayak 2…

“Nayak” the movie starring Anil Kapoor was anything but fallacy. We are seriously living in such a country where Government is slave of politics and politicians are the masters of Democracy. Though the thing of becoming a Prime Minister of Chief Minister for 1 day was a fantasy, the movie actually showed how bad things turned into worst things can be resolved and turned into “Everyone ever lived happily” thing.

 

Today there is lot of hue and cry of people outside from Maharashtra coming and settling in. That does create lot of problems not only to people living there but also on the government. It puts lot of pressure on municipality and police department to keep the law and order in control. This in no sense to say that people should not come to Maharashtra. Don’t start to judge me, but think about it.

 

Why do people want to travel all the way to Maharashtra travelling 1000 Kms? Its their “paapi pet” (need of cloths, food and shelter) which makes them do these things. Wouldn’t it be nice if people get jobs in their own cities or states? The niche jobs like engineering and management are irrespective of location, that’s for sure. White collar people need to travel a lot and location cannot be a bound for them. No one is pointing fingers to them.

 

So the reference to Nayak is that, I want Nayak-2 to happen and I want to be the journalist asking question. I want to be either PM of India or Chief Minister of Bihar / Uttar Pradesh. People from that land have to travel against their will just to get their stomachs filled with minimal amount of food. I want to change that scene. I want to create jobs and employment there in their own states so that they don’t need to be away from their own land. I really don’t know whats been keeping these two states from developing? Is it only state politics or National level one?

 

One thing is for sure, India on whole cannot make much of development (yeah, even considering the fact that we are now becoming one of the super powers of the world) per say. We could have done lot better in these 60 years, but we have not.

 

So waiting for “Nayak – 2” to happen.

Austerity and Indian politics…

Today’s Indian Express says Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar has said that austerity by a politician should be a voluntary gesture. Well, I as a citizen of India want to question this statement made by honorary Lok Sabha Speaker.

 

-> Does flying with economy class brings down your prestige and social status?

-> Does travelling by an ambassador or any government assigned vehicle harms your status?

-> Does paying electricity and phone bills harm your status?

 

I guess every politician will answer yes to these questions, as they are not habituated to live big and work less. Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha are held so as to solve the problems faced by the country and state. But the picture there is pretty different. At first place MPs don’t attend the parliamentary sessions, and use the highly costly and worldly pleasures offered at these places. If you don’t want to work there, don’t become a MP. MPs fight in the parliament like they are in a school. Are you paid to do this? Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha expenditure is done through the revenue generated from people. So MPs should note this thing and don’t pretend to be spending their own money on this.

 

Another issue is, what’s the harm in flying economy class? According to Lok Sabha speaker this issue should be left to the politicians. I bet no politician will fly economy class if left on his/her own. The ticket expenditure on every politician is through public revenue and taxes. So why waste in such a foolish way?

 

New MPs like Azaruddin and Shatrugna Sinha are demanding bigger and larger homes. What’s your status man? You are just a new born kid in the Lok and Rajya Sabha. Then why demand such foolish thing? Before becoming MP weren’t you living in the same place? So what’s wrong in living there after becoming MP? If a boy or girl of age 8 is demanding to be placed in class 10, can we do that? A person gets whatever he has got according to his abilities. So better leave demanding big things. At first do some good work and then demand.

 

MPs like Shashi Tharoor sorry Shashi (GYM)oor wants his own gym and privacy. If you want privacy build your own gym at the place you live and maintain your privacy. Aamir Khan also has his own gym, go his way. Why to live in seven star hotels and that too in Presidential suit? Who’s money you are spending there? I bet you are not spending your own money there. And if you are spending your own money, give Indian citizens the source of such huge money. Same applies for S.M. Krishna also.

 

Hon. Mayawati ji also built so many statues. Who’s money you are spending madam? Why nobody questions them? Banks and courts screw common man for not paying debt and spending more than what he got. Income Tax department raids common man’s home only, if seen some inconsistency in the income pattern. But then why not raid a politicians house and take action after that?

 

These things are really maddening. I don’t see a solution to it, until politicians follow the austerity suit. Freedom Fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Lokmanya Tilak, Lal Bahadur Shastri and many more, had also lived an austere life.  Mahatma Gandhi left wearing full cloths because people were not having anything to wear. Lal Bahadur Shastri left eating rice because common public was not getting rice to it. Why did these people have done this? Because they followed austerity and that’s why they live thousands of years in the minds of public and in History. Today’s politician’s life is very miserable, because they have done this to themselves. These politicians will only be on the paper of history books but won’t be in anybody’s mind. Once they step down from the throne they won’t be counted also. Mind it.
