But, is it nothing to know when you are dying, when you are about to take leave of this world, of its joys and sorrows, when the past of your life is unfurled before you, when eternity opens wide its portals, is it nothing to know at that last awful,supreme moment of your lives, that you have not lived in vain, that you have lived for the benefit of others, that you have lived to help in the cause of your country's regeneration?

Elections is still in the air..With the 3rd phase of elections yet to come,and the campaigns officially wound up today,the hot discourses are at every nook and corner about who's gonna snatch the power center..

Power lobby is still obscure..but i feel the fidelity to one's own ideologies is not seen anywhere..It's been more or less like,what theory to oppose,and not about which to uphold..
The one believing in atheism finds it comfortable to pair up with a religious fanatic to oppose another of the kind..The one ostensibly upholding secularism,furtively or explicitly in many occasions,support the evangelists..The saffrons had at least proclaimed what they are upto..

Whats even more queer is the way they entice people..especially the regional ones..
The one striking a chord right now is the colourful offer of colour tv to all by none other than,TDP,the party with the leader,who i once considered legendary,for the kind of tech development he brought forth in hyd,Chandra Babu Naidu, lest it comes to power..huh,atrocious!

The scenes of people suffering with just one tube-well for about a 200 villages with people having to walk miles for a drop of water,with people having to look at the electric lines criss-crossing over them to the nearby areas with them left in the darkness,with the people still looking up to a glimmer of hope despite bearing viciously broken promises, were all some of the disturbing aspects revealing our inefficiency to bring justice to the society..

Another of those ploys had been Karunanidhi's brazen abettal to Prabhakaran,the notorious LTTE leader..It would have been far better if he restricted himself to just the plea to help the tormented tamil citizens of lanka..instead,prabhakaran became his closest friend in the press meets..Relentlessly savoring his linguistic spirit,he's even started a hunger-strike for what i still don't understand..what can an external power,India,do in the internal affairs of lanka??

Karunanidhi is not the only one to blame though..'It would be bloodbath if something happens to Prabha.',Vaiko,who had earlier been convicted under POTA, intended to dodge a hero image it seems..

Mentioning about the support of our politicians to LTTE reminds me of the terror and guirrilla warfare instigated by the ULFA in Assam and the north-eastern frontiers..The mongolians are so much neglected and denied even the most basic of all the amienities..without a proper transportation,without due concern about the education in the area,with those peace keeping CRPF raping and molesting the helpless ladies in the area,they are tormented and haunted too.. But does that ratify the existence of ULFA? Did we really accolade their ventures of detonations and explosions last year to bring Assam into lime light last year??If it's the negligence faced by the tamil lankans thats sticking hard in our Adam's apple,what do we have to say about those faced by our own people??If we are not fit to ply our trade effortlessly,how on earth do we mind others'?

The lost faith in this system restrained me from exercising the franchise..i don't really regret,for i don't think there's anyone who's fit enough so that i would vote without remorse..As mentioned in a movie,every single occupation in the country has upgraded itself in due course,..with teaching requiring an M.Phill, a doctor requiring an MD or FRCS or whatever,with an engr requiring anything more than a B.Tech,the only occupation that remains cold to upgradation and retirement is politics,which must be the most important of all the jobs,that require real efforts to manage a nation flawlessly..Without a revolutionary change in the society as well as the perspective of the people,nothing is gonna be any better.. I know things are better said..i know i was just being another faggot who shirked the responsibility,..but i found no other go..
