Issues in India, People, Philosophy, Strikes and Protests

Old order changes, yielding place to new…

“The world is too much with us. Getting and spending, we lay waste our time.” Man became alert to this warning and began to discover new things, using his/her ‘brain power’, aesthetic sense and curiosity. “If tiny birds can fly here and there, why not we?”, mas asked himself. All these things prompted man to pay attention to new discoveries, even to the extent of depriving job opportunities to educated youngsters.
In view of this, it is time to come out with a new warning, “The discoveries are too much with us, replacing machines in place of men and women.” We rob job opportunities from the up and coming new generation.
If we are smart enough, let us create a world wherein job opportunities and new scientific discoveries go hand in hand.
To get an idea about the reason behind loss of job opportunities, it is enough if we go to a railway station or some such offices where machines are taking care of everything! And, as far as those who are involved in essential services, we have to bear in mind that it is not fair on their part to resort to strike every now and then.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
