Reservation Relaoded

The advent of reservations.. We know all that SC/ST/OBC/ Gujjar/Jat/ Muslim/Christians/General Category  story, lets take a look at a refreshing reloaded version!

Reservation Part 1: The implementation of Direct Taxes code was not taken up in the national Union Budget 2012-13. In addition to Income tax people are forced to pay more service tax as well. Despite surge in inflation, there is a gap of equivalent appraisals. Rupee's value against Dollar is uncontrollably high and the value of gold is shining everywhere than on page 3. Sad we are forced to read all these bland news everyday!

Reservation Part 2: 
Your daily SMS limit has been reserved to 20 per day. This has been decided by the government as a lot of SMSes, degrading the government, were doing the rounds. And like an abla naari, she had to protect her integrity!

And the funniest of all is the Reservation Part 3: Seemingly agitated with the stride of protests in the Indian national capital, the administrators have  decided to go aggressive with their autocracies. Now that the police was done with the implementation of section 144, and knowing that amending one of the fundamental rights to protest is not possible, they have another nasty trick in place.

Excerpts from the Times of India Article posted online..
But with Delhi Police reportedly proposing to restrict entry to the grounds with barriers in the wake of recent anti-corruption protests at the site, and seeking to impose visiting hours citing security reasons, this way of life seems threatened.

Be it any activity, crime, of a call to call off corruption, the government doesn't think about the ways to solve the issue, but sadly endorse LIMITED ACCESS! With this the sick though they have come a step ahead of its ways of 'reservation'.. Reserving our right to visit places in our own country.

Author's Note: This government does not let a pout of fresh air come in.. I don't want the government to be a nagging neighbourhood aunty. It want it to be someone with the style and pleasant personality as a 5 star waiter!

Mind power

When I was a child, my mother use to narrate stories about the power of mind. She made us believe that mind is so powerful that if we concentrate on something, we can achieve it. Years later, someone told me that our mind is so strong that while we sit we can get a door opened without having anyone to touch it. It's a hard sell, but beyond the literal meaning, I knew it carried a deep message.

As I see the world today, I have learned a lot about the power of mind and the underlying meaning of hard sell quotations. Being a writer, I often find my mind revolving around finding the best of words that can narrate something in a unique way. However, there are many more instances where my mind has been my accomplice, and held me through the tough tides, a few of them are:
  • I have always found a relation with the great ideologies, self belief, principles, morals and thoughts. Ironically many a times I have failed to follow them. There comes my mind telling me that I am just being human.
  • It's easier to help someone than to help yourself. There comes my mind telling me that I am amongst those few who have the courage the stand up and help themselves, so don't fiddle, keep trying.
  • I often end up fighting with my EGO and ID, trying to comprehend what is right and what is not. It's when I end up judging myself more than anyone else and my mind tells me that I don't have to be harsh on myself.
  • Despite realisation, I take time in making life's tough decisions, for me as I know that once I have decided there is no looking back. My mind shouts, take your time, better late than never.
  • When I get bogged down by the mean world, my mind tells me not to be sad, the world is meant to be like that.
  • When I get into an impulsive mode, my mind tells me that since I have kept quite for a long time, it's okay to get in that mode. 
  • When I want to be alone, or I am lonely, my mind refuses to leave. I am glad I have a mind of my own.
  • Besides that my mind tells me that I have a beautiful life to live, it will not come all by itself, but I have to put serious efforts and believe in myself. 
  • When I am scared, my mind tells me that I am not suppose to live in fear, I need to stand up and fight back.

In the end, no matter what I choose, my MIND tells me that I have either learn something or have gained something that could be as simple as a plain smile.

Author's Note: Does your mind speak to you like my mind does?

P.S.: There are a lot of posts lying idle on my drafts folder, but they never get to the 'publish' slot. And every time I think of myself, I feel, as I fail to have a constant flow of posts, a part of my identity is lost. But its my mind that comes to rescue me, it tells me that I write not to force the readers with posts and stories, but to let the readers feel free and connect with my words.
