The Indians are coming…..

May_09

We put our lives in your hands!

We had the elections. India looked on as the game of deciding who will be the king of the mountain began in earnest. I watched silently, like my other billion brothers and sisters as the great Indian elections’ unfolded before me like a child’s fancy dress party.

Pakistan is a failed state! A statement made to us by many people lately. It’s a good point one that raises many debates and let’s face it, probably true. The problem is the smugness and superior air some people say this with and how they reaffirm consequently, that India is a great state in comparison. Well, we think It is.  

But please, don’t feel proud of your country in comparison to the worst one you can think of and if we are going to compare ourselves with a neighbor and we wish to stay in the vicinity lets go with China.  

mar09_weak law

The law in our land is weak, its executors dominated by corruption, political influence or social pressures. The weak, as we all know are often beaten into submission by boisterous loud bullies. We all know bullies are basically cowards. The law and its custodians stand by and watch as cowardly bullies with selfish agendas beat it to its knees and don’t allow it to prevail. There is a simple old line so often used that we forget its power and relevance. THE LAW IS BLIND and NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.

mar09_fascists

Fascists, Taliban, numerous “SENAS” and other deviants.

An unknown person slaps and punches your wife or girlfriend or perhaps your sister or maybe even your mother and rips their clothes off them as he pulls them by the hair. When you react, he punches and slaps you and you are beaten by his friends. You have done nothing to deserve this and are shocked by what is happening. What will be your reaction? What will you do?

My way or the highway

Approximately 20,000 to 50,000 women were raped by Serbian troops in Bosnia. A cold dispassionate statistic often read and dismissed by you and us. An act of ethnic cleansing in a world gone mad, done to allow a community to understand that Serbian troops are all powerful, and a way to get back at Bosnian men in the war is to rape their women.  
The women were not a part of the conflict, they were simply victims. Their lives were ruined.

WHERE WAS THE LAW? There wasn’t any, it was a war zone.  

Customer Service

Customer Servility is NOT Customer Service

“When the customer comes first, the customer will last”. This quote by Robert Half says it all but these days we think most people involved in customer service seem to have read it as, “Customer will be last!!!!!”. ‘Why?’ we hear you ask? Well lets just take 3 recent examples to illustrate our point..

Litter

A busy traffic intersection in posh south Delhi complete with the ever present hawkers, beggars, noise, smoke, horns resulting in a cacophony of sound. A large, shining imported car driven by a uniformed chauffeur pulls up and as you watch the darkened rear window smoothly lowers to reveal a man dressed in an evidently expensive suit and even more expensive watch. You watch as he casually empties a small pouch of paan masala into his mouth and then with nary a thought throws the empty pouch onto the road.

Plastic

The ban on plastic bags, introduced in January, is equally ambitious. Environmentalists estimate 10million plastic/polythene bags used and discarded per day. Bags litter the roadside and decorate the city’s trees with a polythene blossom. Cattle ingest them and drains are clogged with them. J. K. Dadoo, the most senior bureaucrat in Delhi’s environment department, blames them for the 2005 floods that killed hundreds in Mumbai. The government has tried to curb plastic bags before. But its regulations were recently found wanting by the Delhi High Court, which then banned bags in markets and shops, as well as hotels, hospitals and malls. It also banned thin bags (less than 0.04mm thick) outright. The government plans to act against manufacturers before shopkeepers or their customers. First restrict availability, then the habit may change, they argue.

Traffic Woes

Here Are The 15 Rules Or Laws That Delhi Lives By
1.The Other Side Law:If my side of the road has a traffic jam,then I can start driving on the wrong side of the road,and all incoming cars will be rerouted via Meerut.
2.The Queue Nahin Rule:If there is a queue of many people, no one will notice me sneaking into the front as long as I am looking the other way.
3.The Mind Over Matter Law:If a red light is not working,four cars from different directions can easily pass through one another.
