One Must Read This! Please note that this section of my website is not to question anyone's patriotism or love for India. I am not writing here to change India. I have lived in India as any other ordinary and repsonsible citizen. I have paid my taxes with as much sincerity as you do. I have no interest in politics and I do not support any political party. I surely benefit from progress in India, like you do. In this page I have put together my expression/ opinion/ feelings for the social and government system without in anyway presenting myself as perosn with all the solutions or answers to the problems. I am not a social worker/ reformer/ revolutionary/authority/messiah who knows how India should be run. I am not for or against any institution. You would agree that about 70 years of independence and still millions in india are starving to death, children are mal-nutritioned, uneducated, farmers committing suicide - a huge population earning less than 1$ in a day. If spiritual India is shining then why are millions homless and hungry? Does it not saddens you? How can Indians permit such poverty and inhumane living conditions to its own people? I think we have messed up in our priorities. Therefore I am making this page. These thoughts and art works are randomly prepared, at different time, independent/ unrelated to each other, free flowing thoughts in adhoc way on what is happening around on TV, Newspaper and Internet. A perspective on life in India... Perspectives of an Alive person, an Alive Heart, an Alive Identity, an Alive Imagination, an Alive Brain, an Alive Dream...

"Desk of a Sarkari Babu is a dangerous place, to view the world from!" - An ordinary citizen.
On daily basis we interact with such babus, they have formed a system that runs on aggression, doubt and fear. They think only in terms of reward and punishment, well beyond the way of humanity or the way nature works. They think lip service is sufficient, no action is required. "I told you so..." is their favourite dialouge. Babus label everything as either good or bad, useful to one's needs or non-useful, right or wrong depending on whats good for them. Rule is simple, gain control through fear, abuse or money. Such system when becomes part of culture, it makes impossible for people to feel good about themselves. Such overly slow, insensitive, lathargic and bribery based system of babus, which forcefully put ordinary citizens down in order to prove their authority or monetary gains will only make its own good people wounded up and sad.
Government insitutes are becoming preachers, enforcers of rule and instruction loudspeakers and not outpost of help, support, grace and strength to citizens. Do you think such system become purveyors of social equality, freedom, opportunities or could even perpetuate happiness? Can such system propogate peace, prosperity or progress?
"Online Babu-Bashing No Crime":
The Supreme Court has yet again come to the rescue of common people. A couple posted adverse comments against the police on the Bangalore Police Facebook page. Upset at the Facebook comment, the police officer lodged an FIR against the couple for offences of criminal intimidation and assault. The court ruled that it was a public forum and a commoner had every right to give vent their feelings, and this is not a crime under the law. The court bench quashed the FIR!
Unfortunately, government employees think of themselves as different from the common man. Government and political parties themselves many times confirm and validate this idea for self interest. This has become the biggest handicap to the democracy. A government employees who are expected to do service to the nation are in fact running a parallel economy of black money and bribes in this country, an organized robbery. Therefore giving more rights to government and government employees will only create greater danger for the common man.
Is police not public servant?
Why their intention and action should always be more powerful than common man? Why have they become messengers of fear and punishment? Why should all of them carry guns? Why should they be forgiven for beating ordinary citizens, just because are poor and illiterate? Their income comes from hard working tax payers money and from pocket of VIPs! And their deparment heads speak as if they are angels representing a 24X7 social work organization. A police person should be given double the punishment for harassing the innocent. What do you think?
You dont' need MBA from harvard to figure out what is wrong with India. Some Babus have made entire country corrupt, incompetent and inefficient; their greatest incompetence combined together has made a system through which nothing can be done without bribery. Those babus who think money will do everything may well be suspected of doing anything for money.
Babus illuminate our whole country with the bright light of their politics. Whole country is their chess board perfectly and masterly organized so that it is not possible to do justice or take any implement any government decision without their profit or permission.
Babu giri is not a family but a club of intolerants, where they play games to see who's most evil of them. Often they select the most incompetent and innocent person as their leader or public face so that he could be controlled and goverened by them and by their evil counsil. They have reduced laws to cobwebs, where innocents are trapped, caught, and destroyed for entertainment or additional income.
Their insensitivity to human plight is utterly cruel for their interest is never in peace but in causing pain.
They are the first ones to send their children go abroad or study/live out of india, for they know how wisely they govern india. There is something really crazy and odd about their system that has brought india to such a poor condition!
Babus make war with living as well as the dead people. So quick on passing judgement on others but never willing to recieve one!
Only Babu that cannot bite is the dead one!
Neither the God will pardon Babus, not humanity.
It is upon God that the safety, honour, dignity, wellfare and livelihood of the people of this country are provided.
