The siege within - Parliament

A few years ago, giving a bribe for applying a passport was not a big deal. Similarly, getting an information from government office was close to impossible. But time changed and these are a lot easier in today’s time as compared to previous times. Nowadays, there is also such a thing like hooligans will get elected into the parliament and disturb the working of it. We have tended to believe it and think nothing can be done for it.
Parliament which is also termed as a temple of democracy is not as holy as it used to be a few years ago. 15th Lok Sabha has passed around 165 bills in the parliament while first Lok Sabha had passed more than 500 bills. Most of the time parliament proceedings were disturbed either by government bills or either by MPs of the opposition party. Every minute of Lok Sabha running’s cost Rs 2.5 lakhs while every hour costs 1.5 crores. This money is being collected by us, the common people who give taxes to the government. But our selected representatives do not think in this manner and their actions force to adjourn the parliament now and then.

Every Company has a HR team then why our Parliament has no such facility in which MPs are trained some basic Human Resource manners. It is true the standard of our leaders have gone down. It may be because now politicians enter politics not to work for the country but for their own sake. In Kanpur, a few years ago, people got so disappointed by the Counselor of their area that they threw him in the Garbage bin. We don’t encourage that People should start taking direct action on our Leaders as it would not be good for the democracy. But we have to remember this thing we have to send only good people in the parliament. Otherwise, our Country will go to dogs and nothing could be done regarding it.
On 15th August 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru had given a speech in the Parliament which had his dream that how our country will change in future days. He said “Freedom and power bring responsibility. The responsibility rests upon this assembly, a sovereign body representing the sovereign people of India. As long as there are tears and suffering, so long our work will not be over.” But in the last few years we have seen examples which are totally different from his vision. 13th February 2014 will always be remembered as the black day for Indian Parliament when one MP from Andhra L Rajgopal used Pepper spray on his fellow MPs while another one Venugopal had brought a Knife into the parliament.

For their Protest they are doing various types of things, someone pulls of his shirt and raise slogans like it happened in UP assembly while someone like Rajneeti Prasad who was so disturbed from Lokpal bill that he torn the bill in the parliament and thrown it. Due to him only, the Lokpal bill was hanging in the Rajya Sabha for over a year. The bill of Telangana was the biggest example of how they can lower their standards. Protests for a bill is valid and should take place as it would bring Pros and Cons in the Parliament but adjourning the Parliament due to this is not a sign for healthy democracy.
Our leader’s standard has gone so low that even a hawker or a Milkman will not do these kind of actions if he is sent to Parliament. In 1989, during a protest a DMK MLA pulled Jayalalita saree in the assembly. He didn’t think twice before pulling a saree of a woman. Similarly two BJP MLAs from Goa where caught watching Pornography in the assembly. Assembly was going on and they were enjoying it sitting there. In Delhi assembly when Arvind Kejriwal was trying to bring Jan lokpal bill, one of BJP MLA placed bangles and lipstick on Somnath Bharti’s seat while other Congress MLA wrenched the Mic when Arvind was trying to say anything. Other legislators followed and continued vandalism in the house. This shows how low our Country Politics have gone. Our representatives whom we choose after this rigorous process of elections don’t think while doing all these things. Any kind of Vandalism is justified on their part while a common man if does these kind of things will be penalized.
This is happening because they don’t fear from the rules and regulations. Why not a security check takes place for them before entering the Parliament. After the Telangana protest in parliament, Venugopal and Rajgopal were given just 5 days suspension. Why not they be jailed and not allowed to fight elections ever. Till when the parties will keep protecting these kind of politicians.

It is high time we should stop sending them to Parliament and encourage good people to fight elections and vote for them. Otherwise, a day is not far when they will be beating each other. Let’s not make our Country’s image as this in the global stage.

Allahabad - Exploring the Land of three Rivers

The land of Prayag or Allahabad where Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati meets was always a special place for Hindus. They continue to come here from different parts of Globe to take a holy dip in Ganga and ask forgiveness for their Sins in life and free them from the cycle of rebirth.

Once called the Oxford of the East, Allahabad has lost its glory in this Modern world. It was once the capital of United Province, now called Uttar Pradesh at the time of Britishers. From Asoka to Akbar, the City was a center of Statesmanship, art and culture. The time has gone and so is its glory, but it has protected its heritages and past to get vanished in current time.
I visited Allahabad a few days back and found there are many places of my Interest. They can be a mythological place or a Modern architecture. The City has seen it all. I am listing out a few of my experiences and will welcome if you want to add anything in the list:--
1)Take a holy dip in Sangam

A Temple like never before - Bullet Temple

India is a land of diversity, home to many great religions of the world. This diversity has made people believe and worship different kinds of deities. They vary from trees to rivers and snakes to cows. However a small village in Pali district of Rajasthan has the distinction one of the rarest and weirdest temples ever known or seen.
 Having heard a lot from fellow travelers visiting the famous Om Banna temple aka Bullet temple was indeed a must for me. On Pali – Jodhpur highway in a small village called Chotila lies a temple of Royal Enfield 350 cc Bullet Motorcycle.
I crossed the mountains of Aravali region in Rajsamand and reached the jodhpur highway. The Sun has gone down the horizon when I reached the temple. The temple is situated just on the highway. While I was boarding off the bus, the conductor gave me a twenty rupees note and asked me to give it inside the temple.

The temple or shrine whatever you may call it is an open space where Royal Enfield bike is kept inside a glass box…

Te Amo - Daman

As my friends in India were supporting Portugal in FIFA World cup 2014, I traveled to India’s strongest connection to Portugal, Daman. This small Union territory borders with Gujarat and Dadra and Nagar Haveli. It turned out to be same as I had expected. The place is quite similar to its counterpart Goa, which was also a Portuguese colony but has a lot of unexplored places than Goa. It’s laid back beaches, Portuguese architecture buildings and awesome sea food has forced me to love the place. So, if you are planning to travel this small town, here are 5 things you should do here:
1) Take a walk in Moti Daman.

Moti Daman is the old city of Daman situated around Moti Daman  Fort. The place has numerous Portuguese style buildings. These grand buildings which was once ruled by Portuguese is now been converted to Indian government offices. You can’t find people speaking Portuguese on road in any other part of Country but in Daman. The atmosphere has charm of its own and you can’t afford to m…
