WHY DOUBLE STANDARDS ?

Recently, I read book-review of Mihir S.Sharma's book "Restart : The Last Chance for the Indian Economy."   The author termed Indian Economy as "resource-poor, trust-deficient, regulation-heavy environment ?

I am not an expert to offer my view point on his remarks.   What I could say is that the word "trust-deficient'' speaks a lot on the basic edifice of our relationships in a society which is fast becoming self-centric.   

If we analyse the cause for such ''trust-deficit, one prime reason I find is applying two different yardsticks or behavioral  standards on  seeking help and extending help to others.   One tends to be soft when he or she  is at the receiving end of  help from others, but take an entirely  different equation when it comes to  his/her turn to extend help to others.

RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE

Violence in the name of religion is a burning topic in the world today.

It is so distressing to see the going  of  so many innocent lives with  religion as a central issue.   

We are a nation with great religious tolerance. When I dwell on this subject, I can't go forward without quoting Swai Vivekananda who  who loudly said the Message of India to the world  at Parliament of Religions, Chicago on 11th Sept., 1893 :

I am proud to belong to a religion which has

CONSUMER AWARENESS IS NEED OF THE HOUR

Being aware of your rights put you on higher pedestal. I could say, it is the need of the hour.  I have seen countless instances where people purchase substandard products from nameless companies and burn a hole to their pockets.

WHAT IS CONNECTION BETWEEN BROOM AND WIN ?

By the time of writing this post, counting trends indicate a clear  sweep  in Delhi  for AAP (Aam Admi Party) headed by Arvind Kejriwal.  But an equally interesting piece of news simultaneously appeared is Broom prices shoot up in Delhi amid reports of  AAP's win.

When I read that news, I was shocked of and fail to understand the connection between broom and win in a post-election scenario.

Hype dilutes the common sense.   What I have seen is that elections here are fought taking full advantage of people's emotions.  Since majority of folks are illiterate or semi-literate, they are driven by raw emotions while  choosing  lawmakers.  The trend must be changed by using the head intelligently.

We must have a new beginning where the elected representative should not boast that he or she is doing favour to people and further people should not be lured by petty tricks.

As long as people remain as a flock of sheep, things may not change much !
