Indian Cinema, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

Less demands, more comforts!

While many of the national parties in India are at the mercy of regional parties, the ruling parties at the center are taking advantage of the rift in regional politics to withstand several demands put forward by farmers or employees. At times, the demands are such that if accepted, it would land the government in a financial mess.
Much different from these “demand seekers” in India are the petty shop keepers who have their shops in every nook and corner and they are satisfied by the meagre incomes or rather profits and never approach any political parties or politicians for their survival. Maybe, they are not tortured by self-pity!

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.
