What !? You Don't Know Hindi !

Bingo! you guessed correctly, this post is pro-Hindi. 
Your Question- Why is this inscribed in English? 
My Answer - Simple, this one's for those who DO NOT KNOW HINDI.

September 14th is celebrated as Hindi Day. On this day in 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India had adopted Hindi written in Devnagari script as the official Language of the Union. 

What could have been a better event for me to advocate the relevance of Hindi!

From nonage till date, I have observed people who are pleased to admit that they aren't well-versed at Hindi or their mother tongue. On the contrary, they try hard to transform self into a whiz kid of English plus any other foreign language. This race, unfortunately, lands them in the middle of nowhere.

If I am not barking up the wrong tree, Hindi is our official language and mother tongue to the most of us. But there is this breed of people which feels humiliated and ashamed, if, for any reasons they are capable of puking only their tuti-futi English. Pity on them ... It is always good to be multi-lingual in this era of globalization. 

Regardless of this, I wonder, what makes them appeased on not being the honcho in their own mother tongue. Do they have the myth that NOT KNOWING to speak Hindi or their mother tongue double implies that they are adroit English speakers, and are licensed to flutter their angrezi wings anywhere anytime.Yo! Sounds absurd. 

Do they know, unlike their demigod angrezi bhasha, Hindi is a scientific language, i.e., the pronunciation for syllables remains same no matter what word you use them with? How would they understand this? Their verbal diarrhea keeps them busy polluting this twenty-four carat lingo into Hin-glish.

Dear Reader, kindly don't feel offended. This was possibly not for you.

The Great Indian Politico-Circus

Disclaimer: This post is written for fun, and does not endorse, criticize or spoil image of any person or political party.
Look at the analogy between a circus and the current scenario of Indian politics.
Indian political circus-790513The broom, the lotus petal, the hand and several others (political parties), have entered the ring of fire (elections). Not only this, they are taking turns to kick each other towards the hungry lion's mouth! Some are performing traditional circus by juggling, dancing and tumbling, while some others (AAP) are experimenting with their contemporary circus skills by a new act - the magic show.


Some did so worse that audience (common man) decided not to view them perform next time. Whereas, audience has a lot of expectations from the magicians. The only one who is joyous all through this is the joker (media).

Amidst promises and dialogues, havoc and crisis, always remains puzzled is the audience, for, it is they who are paying for the ticket to this circus, willingly or unwillingly!

Why do you criticize the country you live in?

Warning: This post may appear offensive to most readers.

"Is desh ka kuch nahi ho sakta"- I often hear people saying this.
On scrolling down my Facebook news feed everytime, 7/10 posts are anti-Indian! I wonder why do people not want to lose chances of criticizing or sharing JOKES on their own country. It might seem harmless, but it is infectious.

Would mocking at your own country; the administration, the government, the people, their culture and the financial conditions serve the cause?
"You are the problem and only you can be the solution."
If you don't do your bit to bring the change, then I think you do not possess any rights to exhibit your sarcasm over it. It is, and it will be the same unless you take a step for betterment.
Any yes, this was not a desh bhakti speech, neither do I say that our country is a paradise to live in!

At the end note, re-quoting a famous dialogue from the movie Rang De Basanti -
Koi bhi desh perfect nahin hota, usse perfect banana padta hai

मैं.. मैं एक बेटी हूँबहन हूँमाँ हूँ और सहेली भी..
खिलती हुई कली सी मैंसपने बुनती परी सी मैं,
विभिन्न रूपों में करते हो मेरी पूजासरस्वतीलक्ष्मी या दुर्गा,
अगर करते हो देवी का सम्मानफिर क्यूँ करते हो मेरा ही अपमान,
मैं एक बेटी हूँबहन हूँमाँ हूँ और सहेली भी..
मन से हूँ चंचलहृदय से कोमल,
कहते हो मैं हूँ अनमोलफिर क्यू नहीँ करते मेरा मोल,
मुझसे ही सब कुछ हैपर मैं ही कुछ नहीँ,
जीवन देना मेरा कर्तव्य हैतो क्या जीना मेरा अधिकार नहीँ,
मैं एक बेटी हूँबहन हूँमाँ हूँ और सहेली भी..
सितारों को छूने के ख्वाब है मेरेक्या ये रह जायेंगे यूँ ही अधूरे,
सोने के पंखों से उडने कि आशा हैपर सह्मी सी मेरे जीवन कि परिभाषा है,
हर पल करती हूँ मैं इंतज़ारमेरे ख्वाबों को कैसे करूँ साकार,
मैं एक बेटी हूँबहन हूँमाँ हूँ और सहेली भी..
करती है दुनिया दुराचारकहती है क्यूँ गयी तुम लक्ष्मण रेखा पार,
मैं एक बेटी हूँबहन हूँमाँ हूँ और सहेली भी..
