It is rather disturbing that these days everytime I see a news on UP it is about a gruesome Murder of an honest officer with politicians literally fighting like street dogs.Mayawati organised a “Dhikkar”(shame on you) rally on her birthday-yes she celebrates her own birthday herself at the age of 50 plus.In retalliation Mulayam singh/Amar Singh organised a “thu Thu diwas” ( spit on you day) and even BJP had its own version of the Dogs day out by having their own ‘Bhau Bhau ‘ ( as in dogspeak)week.
The other great news is that Item girl Manyata will be SP’s candidate from Lucknow because the constitution does not permit a man convicted in Mumbai blasts to stand for election.While Atalji graced the position of Lok sabha MP for more than a decade and brought pride to folks like me by reciting his wonderful poetry and standing like a true statesman when there were none to match his stature,it seems we will have the new MP enetrtaining the people of lucknow with her Latkas and Jhatkas.So much for the love of nation !
Everytime I go back to the city I love,I was born and brought up in I am deeply moved by the state of affairs but coward as I am ,concerned about the luxury of my family I will not go back and fight and keep writing silly articles which no one is going to read.
And even if I go back who will listen to a sane voce in a jungle overcome by evil.May be this is the kind of life the people wish to live,may be they thrive in chaos,may be there is no need for all the educated professional types in a land of Gundas.
After all people are free to choose in a democratic set up and they are therefore getting the leaders that they deserve – mad dogs ruling over mad dogs !!!
