Do We Matter To India?

1.We,the second sex,who are constantly dictated what to wear,where to go and what time to go back home at?or,

2.We who are unable to pay our taxes because of our impoverished state.We,who are fed poison for food,crushed and crippled by the Bourgeois and don’t even make it to the Police Records.We,who are constantly tormented,pushed and shoved around my people in authority.We,whose lives are taken on a day to day basis as if it is a normal every day event?

3.We who toil,protect and save Our Motherland each day from our enemies,at the borders and within the realms of the territory?

4.We,who diligently pay our taxes and see our money being laundered and stacked away in Swiss(unreachable) Banks?

5.We,who wish to pursue our fields,but we can’t because all our funds are transferred to more ‘popular’ sports?

6.We,who wish to make this country a better place,but we can’t because of our illiterate and criminal record-laden bosses?

7.We,who are treated as foreigners within our own country.

8.We,who are apparently the emblem of innocence are constantly abused,assaulted,manhandled and raped?

9.We,who are divided by our religion,caste,sex,creed,age et cetra.

“Do We Matter To India” was a headline I had come across in The Hindu a few days back,about a Tamilian lady in Sri Lanka asking us Indians this big question,but the bigger question that arose in my mind is,whether we,the current citizens of this country matter to India at all?Are we mere specks of dust in the eyes of this country that ought to be done away with?Because that is exactly how WE feel.The country has become a pandemonium of chaos.

So,the question that arises is,do we matter to India at all?

Wear Someone Else’s Shoes…

No!Let me clear the air first,this post is not my rant regarding my love and admiration for the lovely Louboutins or Blahniks.=P.(If someone is generously lending,then I am the first in the queue!)

On a much more serious note,from now onwards I shall try and analyze the most of life’s routine from every OTHER person’s angle.

I am a keen observer and when I travel alone it is a true bliss,for I not only glimpse Delhi with its myriads of layers but also the nonchalant working of the social classes.

The one that mostly seems to amaze me is the heart of Delhi,Connaught Place(this is one destination I usually visit alone a lot).Why so?Every individual that passes you,or a couple or a group has a story to tell.From the drugged vagrant lying about on Outer Circle or the V.I.P. in his S-Class,the new-gen.school kids,a to a 9-5 office goer.Every individual has a story to tell.

We,the ‘blessed ones’ begin and end our day with rants and cribbing over ‘trivial matters’.So,I decided,if not everyday and every time,I shall at least make the effort to perceive the state of affairs from the other person’s angle.
Will you?

P.S.:Pardon the apparent stream of conscious write-up.Like I have mentioned before,the studying has taken a serious toll on me.
