(# 25 – Honey Kr.)
There are many good and bad aspects of India but today i am going to raise one very important issue that needs to be adressed. So, i was just enjoying some fresh air in my terrace when saw a a beggar laying in the streets but then a dog caught my attention, i was intrigued because it looked very desperate as if it needed to do something real quick otherwise he is doomed. The dog looked around and then its sight meet the beggar. Now it seemed like Dog had a motive, he started sneeking. My eyes couldn't afford to blink at that moment. dOg was now near the beggar, then it raised his left leg and now i knew what was coming. I wanted to shout "INCOMMIING" to the beggar but i knew it was worthless he couldn't have heard me from this distance. And then Came a SPLASHH of water on the face of beggar that was good morning for him. Dog now looked very blissful, went happily wandering down the nearby aisle.
For a moment i was very amused. I thought may be i should have recorded that video and uploaded it to youtube. I would have become very popular. Then i looked at the beggar, he was far from getting surprised or angry. It was just another day of his life. So basically the point here i am trying to make is that this "poverty" is the trademark of India not the big buildings or skyscrapers you see in some place (If you even see them). So what decideds the fate of a begger and middle class people like us? Is it purely based on PURE luck? May be it is i suppose, you are born in a middle class family and you are instantly an engineer. And for an off-spring of a beggar family, if heis ever able to make a career in some vehicle reparing shop, he is successful. But then why doesnt the government do something about poor people (Everytime anything goes wrong we don't wait a second to blame the govt, do we? ).
Well *chuckles* i dont intend to make any deep or philosophical point here, you may have heard it many times but the reason responsible to making our contry is same and as simple as this. Everywhere in India, you can hear people say, "Tradition is everything". Unfortunately, that destructive tradition continues as it has for centuries, even though it causes poverty, despair, hopelessness, filth, and internal destruction. Indians cannot even build a proper railroad that does not kill their own people.
No two Indians can agree and work together for very long. Each is only concerned with his own pocket. It is because of Indian traditions that corruption, bribery, ant the exploitation and persecution of lower castes like the Dalit will continue forever. The only way to fully eradicate poverty in India is to remove the Indians.
It is the very soul of the Indian that causes such injustice and inhumanity to the poor. The heart of India is corrupt. Tradition is everything. And who are these people? You and me :-)

Haah! Samajh hi nhi aarha tha ritiyon- ku ritiyon ke dher me se kise chunu or kise nhi.
Fir haar maankar ya yun kahiye ki makdi par daya khaakar socha bahar hi ho aaun. Madhu bhabhi, meri padosan, jaldi me thi, Aaryan ko school se laane jana tha. Mene socha me bhi ho aaun. Kamaal ki baat hai sann 2013 me bhi ek 18 saal ki ladki ko ghar se 15 minute dur jaane keliye ghr par 5 minute lambi kahani sunani padti hai! "Kahan ja rhi ho?" "KYun ja rhi ho?" "Aur kon ja rha hai?" "Kab tak lautogi?" "Sidhe ghar hi aana."
Ab mujhe toh aj tak yahi samajh me nhi aaya ki ghar tedhe kaise aate hain?
Raasta lamba toh nhi tha, par school pahunchte pahunchte maano me bhul hi chuki thi ye sab. Mujhe kya pta tha ki Bhagwaan ko ye manzoor hi nhi! Vaapsi me maano unhone is samaaj ka chehra hi rang daala! Bhasha yun toh kachi hai par mere Hindustan ke har nukkad ka taraana chhedne ki koshish kar rhi hun...
Aaryan gate se bahar nikla aur apne doston ko bie keh kar humari taraf daudta hua aya.
Vahi aam sa sawaal," Hi champ! Aaj school me kya seekha?"
"Didi aapko pta hai... Aj ma'am ne bola ki jhooth bolna galat baat hai, hume humesha sach kehna chahiye "
"Haan! Ye toh ma'am ne bilkul sahi kaha."
"Aur na ye bhi bola ki hume saare lulez ko follow karna chahiye!"
"haha! lulez nhi beta 'rules'."
Tabhi cotton candy waale bhaiya nazar aaye aur FM radio baj utha,"mumma khaana
mumma khaana... mumma please khaana..."
"Mumma please khana ... mumma khaanaaaa... mummm...."
Madhu bhabhi gusse me bol uthi," jo bache zidd krte hain,unhe pahaadi wale baba apne saath lejaate hain!"aur me dabi c awaaz me bol pdi,"Aur jhuth bolna galat baat hai!"
Aaryan is par zor zor se rone lga aur raah chlti har nazar hum teeno ko ghoorne lagi. Ab humara desh toh hai hi lambi naak waalon ka, kya sahi kya galat bs 'log kya sochenge?' isi par aakar sb tham jaata hai. Madhu bhabhi ko bhi yahi sawaal dhyaan me aya... Aur fir kya tha, naak ko kaise jhhukne diya jaa skta tha... Duniya ki aankhen aur bhabhi ka naak dono jeet gaye! Aur Aaryan ko cotton candy mil gayi.
Kuchh kadam aage sadak k kinaare 1 gaadi ke pichhe se jhhankta hua board nazar aya toh bhole bachpan ne puchh liya "Ye kya hai?"
Madhu bhabhi bejhijhak bol uthi," NO PARKING! yaani yahan gaadi khadi karna manah hai!"Meri toh maano gehri neend hi tut gyi! Uske sawaalon ka jawab dena toh dur sawaal sunne tak ka hosh nhi rha! Kamaal ka desh hai mera, yahan neeyam bnne se pehle unhe todne ka pravdhaan bnaya jaata hai; construction site pe mukhya nirmaan se kayi saal pehle use banwaane waale neta ka naam likhwa diya jaata hai jabki banane wale haathon ka bejaan pdna tak kisi ko nazar nhi aata!
Tabhi 1 taxi driver aur kuchh logon ki behas ki awaazen mujhe soch ke sagar se vapis kheench laayin. Zra si duri ke liye 600 rupey! Sailani the na, Shimla me kamaayi ka mukhya saadhan!
Ab atithi toh dev hai par aisa kahan likha hai ki hum daanav nhi hoskte? Daanav hokar dev ko lootne me akhir galat hi kya hai?
Tabhi 1 awaaz ayi,'' Mummy mene aaj'a to z' beekool(bilkul) sahi sunaya aur ma'am ne good bhi kaha. aapne bola tha na ma'am good bolengi toh aap bdi waali chocolate doge?"
Ab kyun nahi janaab! Humne toh Bhagwaan ko rishvatkhori se achhuta nhi rakha. Jahan roz laakhon log bhukhe pet sadak par sote hain aur patthar ki murtiyon par croron ke sone chandi chdhhte hain aur upar se laakhon ka bhog!
Aur farmaayishen bhi toh dekhiye inki,'halwa puri' 1000-1000 rupey kilo bikne waali mithaiyan aur mehnge mehnge fal! Ab koi puchhe 20 rupey waale chhole bhhathure ya 10 rupey waali pani puri me kya khaami hai? Taste bhi badal jaega. Mashjidon me jaao toh sone ki zarri waali jaadar chadhhao ab itni chaadron ki jgah 1 achhi si razai hi chadhha di jae toh! Kehne ko toh allah/ Bhagwaan/ Ishu roshni hai par roshni ko na toh mene kbhi mithhayian khaate dekha na chaadr odhte! Khair, counter par pehle payment ki jhhadap khatam hui aur hum chocolate lekar chal pade. Ab toh ghar bhi bas aane hi waala tha. Tabhi saamne se Sood uncle haath me pure it liye ghar ki taraf jaarhe the. Mene bhi puchh liya,''arre wah uncle! aaj shopping?''
"Shopping kahan beta ye toh zarurat hai. Suna hai Shimla me jaundice faila hua hai." Tabhi unke ghar ka darwaaza khula aur aunty haath me kachre ka dibba liye baahar aayin,"uff ye kude wala aj fir nhi aya aur bagal ki naali me kuda fenk diya.
Isi naali me makkhiyan Goa beach ka anand le rhi thi or 1 kutta gala tarr kar rha tha! Sood uncle ne patthar utha ke use de maara ki tbhi 1 khidki se 1 sir baahar nikla," Arre itni der kaise hogyi?"
Mene ghadi ko dekha... 40 MINUTE!
"kuchh nhi mummy... bas traffic!"
