Governance in Progress?

The tell tale signs of an efficient machinery in the Indian Government coming together are visible or is it an illusion? But then what is real[ity]?

To quote Morpheus from Matrix "What is real? How do you define 'real'? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain." 

Right now philosophy and physics aside, my brain tells me we are in the right path. I am just grinning ear to ear ... maybe i am in a state of euphoria reading the news articles on the way our new Prime Minister is doing things. This is where reality issue comes to the forefront .. it is to do with trust. Too many times the media gets strong-armed into providing biased opinion.. I hope it is not the case.

It is about time people worked .. It is definitely about time the politicians worked . problem is we expect the government to do its job .. and take things for granted.

 Take for example the simple case of chocolate wrappers being thrown without a second thought .. Next day the same people complain of dirty roads, dirty neighborhoods/locality and blame the civic corporation for not doing their job. If ONLY we we do our bit and stop pointing fingers, our Prime Minister will be a lot more successful.

I believe grass root education of basic civic sense and empathy towards others is what will really carry our nation forward. Until that becomes a reality .. everything will be just an illusion!!!

I have been and still do my bit .. do you or rather most importantly will you??

Ab ki baar Modi Sarkar

FINALLY .. Common sense prevailed in India. Am so hoping the path to progress and the possibility of India being a real superpower is finally underway.  The progress begins with one word .. thought .. and this thought if even fulfilled by a certain percentage, I will be happy.
India with all the brains, the natural resources and the man power had absolutely stalled in the face of blatant corruption. 60 years of misrule .. false ideologies and no accountability for whatever goes mentality. This has now paved way for some semblance of hope.

I join the rest of the Indians to congratulate Mr Modi on a fantastic victory. I did my part by traveling to Mangalore to vote for Modi. I did not even know the name of the candidate in my constituency. This was nothing but a Modi tsunami. For all those who still pretend it is not so .. well .. get a grip on reality.
