To you, the hypocritical Nationalists.

Crude oil prices over the last 1 year Crude oil prices today


These two images are from completely reliable sources (Bloomberg and Infomine). How the International Oil prices have taken a dip over the last year. You don’t have to be an economist to understand the impact of Oil prices.

Now, just compare the rates of Petrol or Diesel back then and now. When this government came to power the Oil per barrel was $108/barrel and stands at $46/barrel now. But has the common man seen any change in the price ? No.

Are we seeing any debates on issues like these on National Televisions ? Are we witnessing how news anchors rush to ask all the BMW waalas about their response on Oil prices ? Where did all our activism go over this last year ?

The last time rupee took a dive down, my timeline and almost all the social media was filled with questions as to what the government is doing ? Jokes on Dr. Singh and of course the ever fav “Italian” Sonia Gandhi. Amazing, how you all feel “proud” of Indian Americans making it big, but still bring her ethnicity whenever you feel like. The present Foreign minister had on record claimed she would shave off her hair if Sonia becomes the PM back in 2004. Of course, she didn’t become one and we were spared the dare.
The PM before this joker was silent on almost everything, this one only opens his mouth when he steps on a Poll campaign. Can someone please tell him, PM isn’t PR minister? He has time for election campaigns. Spending time on “Mann ki baat”, attending marriage ceremonies in expensive suits, wishing Happy Birthdays to every Tom dick and harry and when people question him for days on Dadri, what does he come up with ?
I doubt anyone apart from the ones who have opposed him since long would do. Or when they would do, will be branded as Rabid Anti-BJP elements.
It’s sad you know, most of you were shouting how people even say Yaqub shouldn’t be hanged. Now the same you has plainly ignored everything when Aseemanand, or Kodnani or Bajrangi are given bails, forget about being hanged. You were all so excitedly blaming someone else’s religion just a few days back. Whose religion should I blame for this ?
No, I won’t blame your religion. But I do blame idiots out there, the so called “Nationalists” who have dug a hole of hypocrisy and refuse to come out of it.

Wake up, before they start putting more people to sleep. Literally.

I wrote this piece before elections and what I feared is finally coming true. 

But then, you put these guys into power.

Hypocrisy of the Indian Political Times!!

Hypocrisy in our political times

2014 has been an eventful year in terms of politics. The last 2-3 years, especially, have been all over the news, social media and on every Indians’ mouth(that includes a chaiwala to a BMW driving executive).

Battle lines which were blurred from ages got clear. Camps began showcasing their arsenals and firing on all cylinders. Politics was the buzzword and rightly so, India seemed finally awake to issues like corruption, rape, inability of ministers to deliver. All the moves by the politicians were under the radar.

Rise of Democracy

This was the part, of which every Indian should be really proud about. Indian youth finally had a vision of development and was willing to fight for his right. After all he is a citizen of the World’s largest democracy.

But here’s the catch. (There’s always a catch when it comes to politics).

The battle lines, the camps and ideological battles got more and more specific, targeted and got spread from being just display of point of views to becoming hardcore “fan boys” (even more than what Rajni fans claim to be) and believe me it wasn’t limited to just one side.

The idea of democracy keeps getting challenged every now and then, but the campaigning around this time actually redefined a lot of these parameters.

The government ruling the country was challenged, shouted and even abused for each of their wrong-doings, which are far too many to be listed. Every move was put under scanner, skeletons were dug up and a lot of political gimmick took centre stage.  All of this was done by each of the opposing forces and highlighted by the media. Some even pointed out biases by each of the media houses as well to describe their innocence and adding another excuse to the ill treatment meted out by the media to them.

Time went on, elections became more of a marketing promotion scheme, where one brand scored over the other by winning more number of votes. And a new government was formed.

So, if you wonder what has changed ? Except new faces and names of politicians, nothing has changed.

The same opposition party (which is now in the government) now continues to toe the same lines when it comes to price rise. Ironically, the highlight of their campaign was the same price rise issue against the ruling party.

Nothing changed. Even the sight of a suffering  common man.

Sadly, this remains out of bounds for the fan boys, who continue to dream of a changing India and are now busy propagating the line that “country needs development and for that price rise is essential”. Wow!! So much understanding??!!

Where was this when the previous government was making similar decisions?

Anyways, if this understanding does not highlight the kind of hypocrisy that these followers (aka fanboys) have, then nothing else will.

Everyone was right to blame the previous government for price-rise, but this government which “promised” to change it all, now has the right to do it all?

I haven’t used names anywhere in the article. Of course, it is no-brainer to whom I’m referring to. The main reason is, now even my thought process or criticism would be questioned. The same set of people who would abuse other politicians, are now ridiculing any criticisms regarding the “government”.

Hypocrisy could not have had a better example.
