IS INDIA HEADED IN THE WRONG DIRECTION?

 Is India headed in the wrong direction? I think it is time we gave some serious thoughts about the slow poisoining of our rights and values that is taking place in our country now:

  • Our right to be hit & killed by exotic cars is now often being trivialized as drunken road accidents! (Remember Shlok 32, Chapter 11 from Geeta,
    One who gets hit and killed by a speeding Lamborghini, gets to roam around in my Pushpak Viman at a 30% discounted price“)
    .
  • Even after Bal Thackeray clearly allowed Indian men to rape any girl who, according to the men, has dressed ‘provocatively’, Indian men are sometimes still finding it difficult to ‘do’ it without causing a stir in the media. The experience is more painful for the politicians and their able sons. They may not get sent to jail, but get harassed by the media for a l-o-n-g couple of days!
    .
  • Some shady groups (hanuman rights groups or something like that) want to abolish our democratic right to abort female fetus and/or kill baby girls! Imagine having more girls out there …….. you imagined it, right? ………. and then the same groups will cry foul over trivial issues like ‘security of women’, ‘assault on women’ etc!
    .
  • Not just our fundamental rights, even our honor is in danger. With decreasing number of honor-killings every year, I tremble in fear thinking about what will happen to us when there will be no honor-killing at all !!!
    .
  • Worst of all, there is uproar even if a minister is just sitting at a corner of the state assembly, quietly, and trying to satisfy himself by watching some wholesome porn!
    The poor minister was not only trying to patronize the smart phone industry, he was also setting an example of sharing by sharing the video with the state minister for women and child development. The second minister was surely checking the development of the women (and children) in that alleged porn movie!
    .
    Is this what we have come down to? Instead of praising a selfless deed, we are maligning the person! How low can we go!

Fortunately, we still sometimes get to see Tom Cruise or Oprah Winfrey. That’s what is leading us through these dark days!

By the way, the Norwegian Child Kidnapping (‘Protection’) Services have won the Brainless Bastards Award. Way to go Norwegians! You are headed in the right direction.

  2. man …… u really r an expert of dark humor!!!!!!11

    the karnataka minister takes the cake here but the female fetus honour killing hanuman rights …… everything is short and poignant

    the norway thing is really getting ugly. they deserve to be called brainless bastards

    • Thanks Pranay.
      I hope that the norway custody battle is over soon. The problem is, once the kidnapping service realises that they over-reacted, they will try even harder to prove themselves right.

  4. He’s back and his sting is intact – thank God for small mercies.

    Do I see a platoon of Shiv Sainiks, oily ministers heading towards you with garlands?

    • I feel flattered.
      A-musing is the inspiration for other bloggers who try their hands at sarcasm.

  6. Good stuff here..it’s sad to know how India rolls. Having said that – perhaps all this makes us stronger and we can survive anywhere in the world.

  15. Hello,

    I work at Random House India and came across your blog. I was wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing books from Random House.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
