These days, news channels and newspapers are flooded with news on the upcoming commonwealth games. Seems like suddenly everyone starting from the organizing committee, ministers to the media have woken up from a 7-year long slumber. So... Common Wealth Games... sounds good. The COMMON man could have never got such a wonderful opportunity to make his contribution to an international event of this stature. Inflation, broken roads, heaps of mud everywhere, almost the entire city dug up and the icing on the cake... the fear of floods!! I don't think common man would have ever suffered so much because of this kind of an international event. And yes, the WEALTH, which comes from the common man again, has been wasted like anything, further adding to the sufferings of common man. Nonetheless, our ministers unpeturbed by all the happenings say "All izz well"..!! Phew!! One day a bridge falls. Next day a ceiling falls. Later a road breaks. And there is definitely more in store!! Delhi never looked so ugly!! And, we have songs being played saying "Dilli meri jaan, Dilli meri shaan".... what a joke!! I would prefer singing "Dilli meri bejaan" these days..!!
For me, the best part of these Commonwealth Games is a 17-Day break from the college for "chillaxing". So these games must take place now!! I don't even wish to go anywhere in the vicinity of the CWG venues. With something wrong happening each day, the fate of these games seems to be doomed to me. Same goes for our honourable CM. Letc see how these common wealth games culminate!! On a positive note, lets just hope our leaders manage to salvage the name and pride of our country by conducting CWG smoothly...
Dhirubhai Ambani, Laxmi Mittal, M.S. Oberoi, Shahrukh Khan... All these people have something in common.... These people were "nobodies" at some point of time in their lives. By virtue of their hard work, intelligence, dedication and some luck, they became super successful in their respective fields. Joining the league of multi-millionares across the world, they have set examples for others as well. If these people show attitude, it can be understood. After all they reached the heights of success completely on their own. Ironically, such people are not only successful but humble and down-to-earth as well. But what if shahrukh khan's son or laxmi mittal's daughter show attitude?? They are rich just because they were born in with a silver spoon in their mouth. Does it give them a licence to be arrogant and look down upon people who are financially not at par with them?? Do they have any contribution in achieving their so called "status"?? I don't think so. Then what's that attitude and arrogance for??
Guys, please don't start disliking srk's son or laxmi mittal's daughter!! These were just examples.
All i mean to say is i don't approve of people who feel proud and arrogant about something that they have not earned(here i am talking about both material and immaterial things). They should be thankful to God who has been gracious to them. They should be thankful to God for they are not among those who struggle and work hard day and night to make their dreams come true. They should be thankful to God for he has been kind enough to grant them an easy life. But no, they are exact opposites. I "heartily" feel sorry for such people....
We had had enough of this DCE-DTU protest in the last semester. The repercussions were not so good. Extended session, too many assignments all of a sudden, delayed summer training and what not!!! But, what we saw yesterday was completely unexpected. People who were among Pabbu's "loyal allies" (among the faculty members) during the protest, turned against him all of a sudden!! Some of them are well known names in the college. They all came out with the slogan "VC down down". Honestly speaking, i found it quite funny and entertaining rather than something serious. The apparent reason seemed to be "pabbu not keeping his promises" that he might have made during the protest in order to get their support. How can these people expect the students to support them now!! Just because of their personal differences and vested interests, they think they can play with the careers of hundreds of students. If they genuinely care for the benefit of the students and the college, why didn't they support the students when the protest was at its peak??? Who can forget the shameful lathi charge and the ugly brawl that took place at that time??? The answers are very obvious. These people are least concerned about us. You never know that the same people might favour pabbu all of a sudden once again!! For the time being, let's just wait and watch..;);)
