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.

People and their driving sense…

Ahead of Commonwealth Games 2010, Delhi is buzzing with various infrastructure developments (only Delhi Government knows how many of those infrastructure development programs are meant for infrastructure development and how many for internal corruption and wallet filling). The development seems to be much sluggish than a tortoise walking on the beaches. Constructions have only started but the end seems no where. May be the development will end either on the date of commencement of Commonwealth Games or after the games get over. Similarly the traffic regulation and people’s driving sense seems to have gone for a vacation on some other planet (may be on Moon as Chandrayan and other space shuttles have discovered water on the Moon).

The traffic all over India is unregulated. Traffic Polices are only for a show off and for jacking money from people. But they don’t seem to regulate the traffic. They don’t even try for regulation. People also follow the similar notes. Vehicles are provided with Upper and Dipper beams so as to facilitate people in night driving. These facilities are provided for use only. But people don’t use the dipper beam and ply with upper beams only, even though that upper beam obstructs the vision of the person coming from the other side.

Similar incidence happened with me (though it happens on a regular intervals with me) recently. A person was driving a jeep and on a narrow road we came head to head. He was focussing upper beam only. So I flashed upper and dipper consecutively so as to suggest him that lower your beam as I am not able to see anything. But he refused to lower the beam. What I could have possibly done other than cursing that man. I tried to tell him to ply the vehicle on dipper and use upper when necessary, but in vain.

Delhi Government has announced a new program wherein they will educate the Delhites on proper driving rules and practices. But I doubt how useful that will be. But there is no harm in trying things out. Delhi Government and P. Chidambaram (Home Minister of India) stressed out that Germany and China have done the same thing before hosting such big events. The education program in Germany and China were successful because people there think for their nation and feel dejected if someone from outside blames their country. But that’s not the same with Indians. We Indians have lost pride in our country. And that’s the reason we are facing issues like corruption, ill-politics etc. (the list will go on and on).
