आम आदमी

आवाज पे तेरी उठा,
ये आम आदमी।
आगाज पे तेरे जगा,
सो रहा था जो कहीं।
आज तक सहता रहा जो सब,
कुछ ठान बैठा वो आम आदमी।
हालातों से था परेशान जो,
अब लड़ रहा वो आदमी।
दिखता ना था कुछ रास्ता जिसे,
सही राह पकड़ चुका वो आदमी।
थक चुका था गुहार लगा-लगा जो,
फैसले अब करने लगा वो आम आदमी।
एक शुरूवात जो तूने की,
आगे उसे बड़ा रहा रहा हर आदमी।
बदलाव का जो रास्ता चुना तूने,
आगे उस पर बड़ रहा ये आदमी।
खींचने को नीचें बहुत है तैयार,
पर थामे तुझे खड़ा है आम आदमी।

(A movement which was started by Anna Hazare and taken forward by a lot of others like Arvind Kejriwal, Shashi Bhushan and more has inspired common people to believe that they can change the system themselves; which has led to discomfort in other political parties and they are playing all the dirty tricks to get back in the power. I am not a die hard fan of any particular party or leader, just hoping to see a clean and corruption free India.)


Time to rise above political lines and think about “Country’..

What an end to 2011 & Lokpal in Rajya Sabha !  As usual politicians were shouting & fighting to prove their individual party’s point of views, which others were obviously not interested in listening to. It was like watching a large group of kids engrossed in their own individual discussions without paying attention to what’s happening around them, unfortunately it was entire nation in this case. It’s frustrating to watch our elected representatives to fight like this, imagine what can we expect from common citizens!!

Most of us don’t understand the Lokpal, at least I do not completely and are still in favor of it being implemented. The only high level understanding people have is that it will bring everyone under the scanner of Lokpal, and can be an catalyst to control/remove corruption in India which is widespread like plague. And I feel that’s more than we as common citizens need to understand. So, as Anna says; it’s important to bring all government bodies, departments and employees under the Lokpal to ensure it can be used effectively.

But what political parties are doing right now is just mockery of their responsibilities towards country. All of them are focused on display of their political rivalries instead of coming together and try to reach some consensus which is beneficial for entire nation. What appears is that none of them is serious and want to get this bill passed, as it’s going to make things difficult for them in future whenever being in power at center or any state. Most of them are themselves neck-deep in corruption, so what else can we expect!!

As a common citizen it’s a sincere request to all politicians to rise above political lines and start thinking about country and show some respect to the people who elect them and make them feel special. After seeing what all happened in last few days, am not sure if  I would like to really vote for any of the candidates.

Lokpal, Anna & the Jokers !

Anna begins his fast again and Lokpal being discussed in parliament today. Sounds like it’s going to be an interesting day.

Looking forward to hear more interesting & intelligent sound bites from Mr Digvijay Singh & other congress leaders, which will act as stress buster.  At least for me..

Just like that
