Patriotism Slammed

Ever so often, I am reeling under the big question : What is patriotism in the most layman terms? Is social service patriotism? Is protecting the country's borders patriotism? Is upholding the laws of the constitution patriotism?

To me patriotism is rather an invisible concept. It doesn't have to be that way. When servicing for the betterment of people in a place irrespective of gender, class, creed etc is what humanity is all about. Patriotism is nearly the same, right?

And it is the ones protecting the rights of our so called constitution who are the least bit "patriotic" who don't give a fuck !!

Do you know that you would not be able to see the moon if it weren't for the sun to exist?
The moon is visible to us at night time because it is lit by the light of the sun.
Just like that, even something as mind blowing and massive like the moon also needs something to exist and  carry on it's duties.
We too, in a way are 'Suns' or 'Moons'.
Some days we try our best to shine and be happy and assist as much as we can and other days we need the assistance and happy 'Love' rays.
It's astonishing to see how 'We' and 'Us' exist in every form and being on this planet without which, nothing would balance.
So how 'bout some of that sunshine eh?

Follow you Into the Dark.

It is truly beautiful to witness transformations of light to dark.
When the sun is almost setting and the purple, orange and crimson slowly fade through the prism.
When the Chameleon turns into a dark mix of shades of blue, red and purple.
Although the Bharat Bandh doesn't fall into this category.
Crores of rupees are lost due to Bharat bandhs ; Because people are not happy with certain decisions.The ones who made those decisions are not happy because they want power.The ones who have the power, exercise it wrongly and finally the system is certainly everything else but a 'System'.
This Bharat Bandh hits a whooping loss of 12,500 crores.
That could probably feed a small nation.Or help thousands of kids on the street.
Although, we can only imagine all those possibilities that 'Could've' been done.
Maybe till then, we can try to enjoy the little joys of the slow transitions of Light to darkness.
Gently embracing the path to the mystic unseen.

We all have secrets.We find perfect ways to hide them too.
And it's so often you read about women being raped, manhandled, mistreated.
It sure as hell is no secret that we too, have been stared lustfully at, been touched 'by mistake' and sometimes  it happens so quick and the moment passes so fast, you don't know how to take quick action.
You are over powered.
After the  Guwahati gang-rape case, no one observed the urgency of increasing safety, making the laws more stringent, after the murder of Pallavi, the girl who was manhandled and murdered in the sanctity of her own home, no one brought about enough assurance of safety and protection for the Indian women.
So many Independent young women, hurt, mistreated and over powered.
At what cost?
Its sad that now, in the 21st century, we claim to be developing and ever changing in our outlook, it takes the death of innocent people like the  the recent rape and murder of the BPO employee in Pune to bring about and set in stone, the protection, security and safety that each of us need to out into this battle field.Every.Single.Day.

Guilty Pleasures.

So you'd probably assume I'd be talking about chocolate or diamonds or fantasizing about the latest glorious new smart phone by side.
Oh, wait, I am totally talking about the latter.
I've always been an Apple fan : They REALLY know what a smart and sleek finish is.
They always seem to know perfectly what each sector and group of people appeal to.
And finally, they create what you imagine.What you desire, and more.
In short, after countless hours spent ogling it online, I've concluded : 
1.This phone has a wider screen to smartly accommodate five rows of apps on the home screen unlike the previous version.
 2.From what I see, It's sleeker an much easier to handle than the previous models which often fell off my hands a couple of times.
3.And it basically looks like a piece of sheer 'Byoo-deh' to behold and finally OWN.
So it's safe to say my current 'Guilty Pleasure' is the iPhone 5.
Chocolate and Diamonds can't compete.For now.

The Beginning.The End.

Here I am, at the crossroads of my life.

Who I am? I'm close to defining that.
Where I'm from? Remember Heidi from the Alps.(Let's say I'm her)
What am I doing here? Soon enough, you will know.
You may surely remember, you also may not.
You may read between the lines, you may also overlook.
You may want to live, but aren't we just killing ourselves?
Hey I am Kaanchi.
