How many of us would want to be politicians? Very few. But why is there such a huge negative response from the youth about politics? One may wonder, ‘THIS’ in a country that had produced some of the greatest leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and many others who sacrificed their lives for the countrymen!

The fact is that it is hard to be a hero, more so in a country like India, where everyone wants to snatch a piece of you and you have to fight off the clawing, cloying seekers of glory; in a nation of armchair achievers, where people auction themselves to the suavest bidders and everything works on money including the law. Why would anyone be interested to join politics in such a vicious situation. We always hear ‘India is a developing country’, and look forward to be called ‘The Developed India’ and be a part of the first world. In spite of the technology, the scientists, the hugely talented population and the resources we have, we are not able to claim our rightful place. The interference of politics into every field has brought us to such an ugly situation. Commercializing everything has become one of the biggest backdrops and has led to political instability. Routine political games and false promises in the name of elections have eroded people’s confidence in the government. Old, incapable and natty netas making style statements in fashion shows depicts the exact picture of today’s Indian politicians. For instance one would find Defence minister, Shivraj Patil socialising in a fashion show at Mumbai exhibiting Rocky S’ collection instead of looking into sensitive issues like the recent bomb blasts. And the reporters nevertheless run to such shows late at nights, gather information and flash them on screen at the earliest, by accpeting the NO-CONFIDENCE motion passed by their wives, ain't it??

Still the fact remains that everything begins with YOU. It is YOU who is responsible to serve the society as a responsible citizen. It is YOU who is accountable for everything that YOU do. YOU vote for a person thinking he or she would serve you but when THEY do not fulfill YOUR wishes, YOU play the blame game. For instance: In India, WE spit paan on walls with that chalta hain” type of attitude but, when the same person goes to Japan or U.S, he or he doesn’t do that abiding by that country’s rules. When YOU can follow the rules of other countries then why not YOUR own country? Why are we INDIANS so unconcerned about our country? Why do we think western countries are better than us in every aspect? Why do we always throw the blame on our government?

So, may be very few of us would take politics as a choice, but we need to keep the spirits of these very people alive, so that they re-kindle the fire in us and pave a path for ‘Change’ (one of the most used clichés in politics). Let the bygones be bygones, and let us end the 'mud-slinging' politics and begin a "Golden period" where in, the members of political parties work towards the country's betterment. Let's make our country proud for what WE are going to be and let's erase the image of a Politician -"who shakes your hands before elections and your confidence after elections". Let us join hands together as future politicians for the bright future of our nation. Let us make a New India.


Love- A question or an answer??

They say..."LOVE" starts with a spark and ends with an ash, but is there any kinda end to it ?? LOVE is something that cannot be defined according to me. LOVE is not special but lovers are special and it depends on how special they make their relation to transform their LOVE into a life time bond. Sometimes people feel its the highest law that can keep one goin,but on the other side of it,there's a lot of pain that one has to go through. LOVE is a game where one has to play his/her cards right and the one who survives the hurdles,take pain and goes through it ,is the real winner.
LOVE is beautiful like a wild rose but tries to draw blood at its ends...ain't it??
Being in LOVE is just not needs to understand how much of effort has to be put in to understand eachother well, love that person, trust that person and sacrifice. Trust is when each of them believes in what he/she does is right. But Once you tend to lose that ,it would be difficult to regain that same trust u had lost which would be fatal for your relation, so better make him/her understand things. that would be beneficial for both and would build up trust. Sharing is another most significant thing in your relation. One should know that without him/her telling out the problem he/she is facing , your partner cannot undrstnd you because he/she doesn't know what are those which are worrying you, so betta speak out instead of thinking that he/she would never understand you. Sharing one's feelings is as important as your relation itself because once you start sharing your feelings/interests that is how you get to know eachother better than anyone would know you. But once you stop sharing things and expect your partner to understand all that you do just by your feelings and expressions, that is where the crisis occurs and that is the starting point of your so called" misunderstanding/quarrels/whatever you may call it. This is just the beginning of another level where you have to go through a hell lot of situations that are yet to come and be prepared to face "HELL DOWN UNDER". I'm not talking of Roadies here...if u haven't mistaken though..lolzz!! But LOVE is something similar to it. Every mistake you do become the footholds for you to step on.
Sacrifice is another thing which people mostly misunderstand or rather don't understand. Sacrificing in LOVE is not about sacrificing your life coz your parents don't accept your relation with the guy/girl you LOVE. But sacrifice here means, sacrificing everything for the person you LOVE(no pun intended) whole-heartedly for every possible reason on this earth. No matter what the world thinks of you, you have chosen the path and you have to face every obstacle that comes your wayin LOVE and LIFE. Take it as it comes, fight back and prove that you are no less than anyone and have the power to take many such things in your life. Prove to the world that you are not wrong for having chosen LOVE as your destiny. But don't be sorry for things you haven't done and don't suffer coz of it. Be yourself and take things in a postive way unless they don't really haunt you. But once the situation worsens and you lose your patience ,just be silent and wait for the right time instead of taking decisions out of haste and sheer frustation. Anger, impatience and misunderstanding are things which are responsible for most break-ups in a relation.
You may love a person who doesn't deserve it but because people say that he/she doesn't deserve it, you cannot stop loving that person coz you have been loving him/her and your LOVE for that person would remain forever. Bt yeah..suppressing/hiding your feelings towards the one you LOVE is the biggest mistake u can ever do in LOVE. Don't ever lose a person you LOVE because he/she may be very precious to you than anyone and so treasure them in your heart.
LOVE can be your strength and your weakness, it depends on how you take it as a person. Someone once told me, you can live a happy life if there exists LOVE and yes that is true coz without LOVE there is nothing so special. LOVE is something that teaches you many things inspite of hurting you. You learn to have patience,you learn to understand things better, listen better, share things properly, give eachother time and space, learn from eachother, learn to be open and free to express your feelings, learn to compromise, learn to look at things from a postive aspect in life, learn to respect others' interests, ideas, feelings; learn to stand by one's side to say you are there for that person for your entire life, learn to live together, laugh together, cry together, share your joy and be there for eachother forever.

LOVE is about you,LOVE is about me, LOVE is all about how it unites ME and YOU as "WE". LOVE is a journey that has many obstacles. Everytime you fall, you pick yourself and proceed forward without looking back at the past. It is all about emotions and how you control them. LOVE itself is a lesson that teaches you a lesson about many things in life, making you headstrong in life at different situations. LOVE is all that you need, LOVE is all that which makes you live. LOVE is everything you need,i need and all of US need.
And my HOPE remains... :) :) :) (the end result may be postive or negative, i will face it...coz anything is possible in LOVE)
