Hello?? Hello?? Hello?? Awaaz aa rahi hai..? #BetterDemocracy

Democracy. Isn’t that WHAT OUR COUNTRY IS? Defined by Oxford as “a Government that has been chosen by the citizens of that country”, is this what 1.2 Billion Indians have really been choosing for 65+ odd years? A nation where 1% of the total population controls 92% of the total wealth. A system where the big industrialists decide the economy curve, and not the Finance Ministry. Elections where people choose to vote for a party

Joseph’s plea for Euthanasia

“My name is Joseph…   4 years ago, an accident saw me go into a vegetative state, with no hope of recovery. The doctors said they are trying their best, but some things do not simply become alright.   With every rising sun, the knots in my stomach start to ache like someone was pulling them out.

Whale Killing in Japan

I am sorry Mom. Sorry that I could not save you from your killers. Sorry for the slow painful death you had to succumb to. Sorry for running away, when they attacked you. Before you feel sorry, let me tell you that I am not one of you. I am the son of a mother, you had for dinner. You destroyed my family. Left me an orphan – for your meat and oil, it was
