'He looked at Raina, and she blushed in shame.'
Cheers, you are a normal Indian if your answer is 'yes'. The real problem here is we are hanging between too many gaps one viz., generation. How can one maintain with the lowest economy, impossible to balance budget which keeps growing. Your taste maybe Cadbury but still you have to buy some rasgullas for your mom an' dad. That's cumbersome!
It's not just our family elders but our community too. Hey, you can't sit with a girl anywhere, and sometimes you even fear your neighbours shouldn't spot you both together, even though if your papa has permitted it.
Now, we can think it on a larger level too. Ya, you nailed it! Our government- so backward, SOS! Thanks we were not born in Afghanistan, or any other Arab countries. Don't need for me to discuss more. I don't want to fill my blog with unusual words which make sense about the things which you already know! Other reporters and bloggers do it in magazines, newspapers and internet to call it 'literature' and themselves- 'writers' leaving to be criticized then to make some of them selective.
State level government or central, all are not in accordance with our metro or modern India. Every time I take up The Times of India, I could read that the government is so eager to take more and more young candidates (future leaders). That's compassionating. But every time some modern revolutionizing idea starts frothing up, old government blows it by blaming it as- 'a washing detergent' for our morals, culture and religion. It's almost strange that a corrupt government is trying that our morals, culture and religion should not get corrupt. If this is the case then think how much good can a non- corrupt government can do.
How can we stop corruption? 'Hey Anna is doing for us!' Leave Anna! For what benefit could he get from our support? Instead of marching behind him we should march alone where no one is marching and try to remove corruption there. Corruption in India is like neurons of a human brain. Which is the severest subtlest in its spreading all over the country and is an evil brain in itself which is undecipherable wholy. Government can't remove corruption on its own but can ask its 1 billion to engulf corruption in one go! The best way to support Anna is that from now if you are going to any government or public sector or private thing, don't bribe them only because it would ease your nerves a little while. But on the contrary it could cause longer, deeper pain on the long run as experienced by we students who have to get success yet. And it's disastrous for you professionals for you have the responsibility of a family (remember Indian families are normaly big enough to handle).
Yes I want an unorthodox governmant! If we look universaly, many things are banned in India. If not by government then by Shivsena type religious gurus or Islamic Scholars ready every time to snap a 'Fatwa' even on your skirts. Small public group also sabotage (albeit their own Indian properties) against modernisation. Behold and lo, Bt. brinjal makes them senti.
Last but not the least comes the question of dignity, of our family, which we have to preserve. So we must not chose any career which will harm the moral consciense of our parents before the society. You can't be a waiter even in a five star hotel, (think more examples), etc.
So if in amidst these you want success, don't try anything else but the same thing which you all know! Yes you all know you have to maintain your careers with your family woes, and how to! The mistake is too soon you all give up and start getting dragged by the circumstances. It's India as I've explained. So it would take time. Yes it would take time. But you will succeed if you won't give up in long runs. Guys, vote this year to some modern government. Bridge the gap!
