Get well soon!

When you know the truth but fabricate lies. When you know it hurts but you say it nice.
When you overlook the facts and promote myth,
and you say it loudly for your own niche.
When you see someone lying in pool of blood
but you find it an opportunity to shoot and let it flood.
When she seems nothing to you beyond sum of her body parts
When you pretend close to God but Ill treat his creations.
when you meet someone out of work
and forget for ever
When someone needs your help and you say 'never'.
Whenen you proudly boast of growth and progress
Without realizing who paid and what it cost
Then I must say you need to see
someone who can heal you thee.

Nationalism- a myth or reality?

The feverish desperation of proving ones nationalism by wearing badges,chanting mantra,holding flags etc has overcrowded the centre stage.I really dont understand why do we have to prove our love for our mother by being so vocal time and again? We do and that should reflect in our behaviour,attitude,concern,  actions and respect to Her and to other family members who are staying together. Do you think just mere chanting 'i love you ma" and doing nothing for her ,not respecting her family members,not caring ,not being sensitive to people around will convince Her that you love her??for sure not.This is just hogwash!!!

       It has become more of fashion to prove that one is more nationalist than other and if someone doesnt fit into their bench mark then that person is anti-national. Such negative impulse is overwhelming the relationship we shared with our past and making it  quintessentially an affair of perpetual conflict which is not healthy for a society and for our country.  

    I dnt have any latent wish to extend my personna of being an INDIAN by flaunting attitude and deftly designed exposures or expression.I cant define my nationalism  to decimal points and show it to you objectively and more over why should I??Your calling anyone anti-national will not dilute his Indian-ness in anyway.SO BETTER  get lost!!
For me  it would be superlatively better to think , feel and do  for our country and its people then to use linguistic pyrotechnics or cosmetic behaviour to prove my nationalism.We need to delink faith from sceptisim else we will have performer and not nationalist.


  1. Absolutely!!! The very idea of being an Indian should not be screaming their fondness for their country but proving it by their act and behaviour !! Action speaks louder than words!!!!
