Commonwealth Games

October 20th, 2010 · 5 Comments

Now that we have finally executed well during the Commonwealth Games, it is time to hold those responsible for the mess and loot prior to the games accountable. And on paper, we have various inquiries that have been instituted. The Organising Committee has already been indicted. The reports will be submitted, a few will be held guilty, asked to resign, sent into hibernation for a few years, and then made Governors.

What no one will then question is how such loot could have happened without involvement from the highest authorities in the land. Middle India would have moved on – because corruption has now become an acceptable part of our culture (just like jugaad). We paint all politicians with the same brush, and so we don’t really care. The looters have enough money to buy out and muzzle all voices for many generations to come.

We are so naive, so gullible. Like we were in the 1950s.

    That’s right. Before 1947 our exploiters(Britishers) were our destroyers, but nowadays our protectors themselves have become our destroyers. What can i say, finally we have voted them, so it is all coming back to us. Doesn’t it sound ” We reap, what we sow”

    We are not naive Rajeshbhai.

    We have just taken everything for granted and we have actually concluded that this is how it is going to be and this thought of ours is unfortunate.

    The Chalta hai attitude continues….

    So whom ever you vote – things will remain the same.

    There has to be another revolution from Aam Aadmi..

    Agreed Rajesh ji. But what can we do to over-come the problem.

    “We are so naive, so gullible. ”

    Is it so?

    In fact, we do not care. We are selfish, narrow minded bunch of people divided on linguistic, religion, regional lines. No wonder we were ruled for over 200 years by British.

    Also, on a related note, come Asian Games. All these great hoopla surrounding CWG win will vaporize in thin air.
