Anti-Romeo Squad – A Protective Act or a Restriction of Freedom

From the time the Modi government came into power, I have been a sceptic, completely sure that this government will not make a difference in people’s lives. It will be the same circle of false promises, hopes shattered and disappointment. I still am a sceptic, waiting and watching to see if the government lives up to the people’s trust. One of the latest moves by the government that has people(especially the young people) scared and worried is the Anti-Romeo Squad started in U.P. We are automatically worried and concerned that it is a garb for harassing couples. I completely empathize … Continue reading Anti-Romeo Squad – A Protective Act or a Restriction of Freedom

The Death of Freedom!

India has completed 68 years of independence. But what does this independence really mean? I don’t see any freedom around me at all. Whenever a girl is harassed by men on the road, I see the death of freedom. Whenever a couple is killed by their own families for falling in love, I see the death of freedom. Whenever I see moral police beating up lovers for celebrating Valentine’s Day, I see the death of freedom. Whenever I see police arresting adults who are staying together in a hotel legally, I see the death of freedom. Whenever I see someone … Continue reading The Death of Freedom!

A Letter to Mr. Modi

Dear Mr. Modi, For several months before the election, I was in a constant fight with people I know, my near and dear ones about how I didn’t see you as the right candidate for the Prime Minister’s seat. I was called a pessimist, an AAPtard, a traitor of the country and what not. It came very close to many relationships being destroyed where both and the opposite party and I would back off, the only thing saving the relationship was that we mattered to each other. You won the elections and became the Prime Minister much to the distress … Continue reading A Letter to Mr. Modi

Smriti Irani as HRD Minister

I am rubbing a lot of people the wrong way by wholly protesting the appointment of Smriti Irani as HRD Minister. Whatever people may say, I can’t accept the fact that someone who is just a 12th pass can be appointed as a Cabinet minister. I am being insulted, being called names for my opinion, but I will still not change it. People are giving me examples of Dhirubhai Ambani, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates. Are they serious? They are actually comparing SMRITI IRANI to these people. These are people who came up on their own the hard way. They were … Continue reading Smriti Irani as HRD Minister

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – A beautiful love story or the most regressive movie!

We, especially women, totally fell in love with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge when we saw it first. I saw the movie many times. Slowly, over the years as I grew up, the movie lost its charm for me and didn’t seem like such a beautiful movie anymore. I started finding the story and romance very cheesy and corny. But, I really got a jolt when BJP said they want to promote this movie as a representative of Indian culture, Every part of me protested against this idea. This is not the depiction of Indian culture that I want the world … Continue reading Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – A beautiful love story or the most regressive movie!

General Elections 2014

With the General Elections 2014 about to start, I hear buzz all around me about who deserves to win and my friends’s circle talking about whom they will vote for. BJP, Congress and AAP are seriously contending each other to win people’s trust. I have always been strongly against BJP because of the anti-social activities of Shiv Sena. Congress did have leaders who could have made a difference to the country, but now we have Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi who is just a puppet.       The only problem with Aam Aadmi Party is that they lost their focus … Continue reading General Elections 2014
