Lok Sabha elections in India are around the corner and all the major parties are busy right now to tie up with smaller ones spread over the whole country.
BJP, the ruling party, has the burden of convincing the people about the impact of the dreadful demonetization, which shocked the people to some extent for a couple of years. But in due course, the BJP managed to overcome the threat by convincing the people about the better part of this shocking event.
The Congress and the leaders of some senior parties have a bunch of facts that could influence the people to some extent.
In short, no one can predict the results of this general elections because, there are innumerable parties that are for or against the BJP or the Congress.
Anyway, the smaller parties can upset the trend by playing their game carefully. Let’s wait and see.

Freebies

Of late, we hear a lot of announcements from various states in India about freebies in the form of Money, or food items, or dresses, in connection with some annual festivals and so on. The ruling parties may find some major obstacles from opposition parties but the state governments are fully aware of these objections which are ignored by the people as a whole. But when the general elections or state elections are round the corner, politicians themselves ignore about these matters and go ahead with their routine promises.
In short, the ruling parties and the opposition parties search for some other benefits which won’t stand in the way during the elections, come what may.

Somewhat bright, but so cold!

“Sunset and evening sky… keep the doors wide open.” “Yeah! My lord.” Sun is bidding good night, but it is not dark as yet. Sun looks bigger than ever against the background of almost six to seven colors! There is absolute silence or occasional wow!
But right now, it is still evening… still bright. But we keep saying, “This is what we call bone chilling”.
Can’t help, can’t help and we go to bed as early as possible. “Oh Sun, why is it so cold?” “Right now, we are in a hill station, boss!”

Thanks for being so charming

“The world is too much with us, getting and spending, we lay waste our time.” Why on earth these words penetrated my mind when I was getting ready to enjoy one of those rare scenes when the sky was absolutely free from smoky clouds. Anyway, let me not waste my time on occasions when our mind would keep jumping from one type of thought to another. Let me not even think of anything else… My lord! The sky, right now, is blue and bright and absolutely calm and the trees are dancing to the tune of the accompanying calm and bright sky… ok, let me enjoy it! Wow!

The runway was the sea itself!

To be, or not to be, that was the question. Whether it was nobler in the mind to OK the decision to visit one of those attractive islands in Canada or to postpone the same till the weather says, “OK, OK…, I’ll take care of it!”

And, much to our pleasure, the Sun raised the green signal. Soon, we got into a ship and reached the island, and stayed in a Hotel. As we watched the sea and the surrounding forest-like areas, we found ourselves in a unique world and realized the meaning of “Nature’s Kingdom”.

Soon, we found ourselves in a restaurant where there were several options, both in veg and non-veg foods!

Then, the usual evening walk, supper and conversations which touched upon various interesting subjects…”

Soon after, we were asleep and woke up at about 6 O’clock followed by morning walk and breakfast… and a visit to the near-by beach.

What’s so surprising was the fact that it was not a poor village area as we thought. There were huge buildings and shops all around.

What’s even more exciting was our trip back to our area on a flight with limited seats, but exciting. The runway was the sea itself!

A stroll in the park

Fastest indeed!

Very often I used to wonder who among the living beings is the fastest. Could it be horses or others which have similar body structures. Or, could it be human beings themselves who take flight here and there all around the world?
Wait, let us not come to a conclusion at the expense of other beings like the flying creatures or rather birds which can lift themselves up without the help of runways or any such supports.
I have seen them off the ground and in the sky in a jiffy and calling each other to pass on some message!
Without an iota of doubt one can come to the conclusion that most of the birds are very fast and they do not need any special “push up” to get the speed they need!

The power of music

Music, at times, works like a magic, especially at the early hours of the day or at the fag-end of the evening. It can capture your mind and take you back to certain concerts which are connected with the childhood days of Lord Krishna! When one talks about Lord Krishna, or any other divine charterers, one, invariably recalls the good old days when certain religious functions were accompanied by dances and devotional songs. In this connection, one has to be thankful to certain movies which are dedicated to such events!

Just a 50-50!

Right now, it is difficult to say which party is dominating in the one-day match. It is not a sunny day but still it is not so cold, though the trees are blowing their heads off and on to cause some difficulty for the people who are not at their houses.
Even as I write this, there is a message from the sun, “don’t be in a hurry, open the window and you will find the rays broader and warmer.”
Yeah, much to my relief, the message from the sun was so heart-warming!
Now, the question, “who will win the match” is still there but it won’t be a match which ends in a draw!…

Serene and beautiful!

Certain places bring back your memories in a jiffy! The other day when I revisited that place, I rushed to my favorite seat and looked around and to my joy, every spot was in its place. The framework was of course, the hills surrounding hundreds of houses and the serene atmosphere. The architects of these houses have made the area calm and almost identical, much to the relief of those who live in the area.
Whatever it may be, the blue sky and the white clouds make the area calm and beautiful. The birds too play the role of making the area as beautiful as ever.
