Looking beyond the prism

Swaggering life meets changing narratives of joystick of society with joyous spirit . Jollity embraces the leisurely peregrinations  of mind and juggles with the pestering issues which normally attract periphrases instead of perspicuity . Being politically correct  has fashionably become kowtowing perfidy .
 Nuisance revisits the outskirt of India’s pride at regular intervals . The mischievous show of terror-strength foments trouble and unrest.  Zakura is the new ground zero where nefarious design of  terror outfit scores and counts injury .Rogue neighbor covertly unleashes its strategic assets in the face of terrorists and sings paean irresponsibly in their praise. Their Jazzy military swathe & jejune politics talk false arrogance and resentfully walk the narrow path of diplomatic engagement . Trouble mongers drop in hordes to baffle peaceniks . White pigeon smiles on the commonplace jeering emanating from jerry-built terror- land.  Serious attendance of  BRICS leaders have purposely paid audience to the swingeing  sound of jaywalking Terror . Domestic constituency is happy with the success of surgical strike . But over stepping or over enthusiasm would be ill-conceived heroism . Seasoned political dispension needs to converge on cautionary line of action or it should disallow itself to astray from its studied approach.
Once again, the ghost of  uniform civil code is disrobing the peace & tranquility of society. Minority’s concerns are boiling in petty religious cauldron as they ill-perceive the air of reform  from out- side of the society  .The static & closed society abhor evolutionary steps. Minority society is getting appalled with the reformatory air blowing with the gripping impact on female psyche. Male chauvinisms find it utter discomforting whenever  shrill voice on triple Talaq or issue of polygamy   gains support from the suffering constituency or the progressive society. Politics has jumped to play football with the nagging issues. Misinterpretation and generalities turn into cacophony and the genuine social concerns get submerged into the political din.

Changing thought process of society needs to be seconded if it appears positive. Acknowledgement of mother’s contribution in one’s success is admirable and a particular electronic media deserves appreciation.
Bob Dylan deserves special mention for being conferred on Nobel prize for his contribution.
Wish you Happy Sunday…

Summer : Exeunt with Smile!

Sizzling summer swaggered past,
Hazy sky clamours for monsoon's Blast!

Beating Sun's Departure is nigh,
Sweltered phloxes heave a sigh!

Arrival and Departure are ways of life!

Welcome Rain!
Sun-burnt petals will be resuscitated in a while.

Farewell Summer!
Your stint is over ; Retire with a smile!

Unmindful of Heat; religiously working-up Fescue.
Taking pride in their workmanship;
Working for famished livestoks' Rescue!

Come! O Blue and grey clouds!
Drizzle gently or heavily down pour.
Restore the verdant grandeur of the pastures of the yore!

Rain has also taken its Toll,
Lives of poors have stopped to roll.

How far be Winter in its Call?

Pick another leaf from this life,
The summer of sorrow is all set to fall!

Getting hurt by the misconstruction:Where does the blame lie?

In my personal opinion,modern world is a make believe one!Hence, it is imperative to sculpt one's public image in a cautious manner and accord the appropriate insight to the invidious gaze for getting viewed in the right perspective.The onus lies on the impessario itself.Cautious people engage the inherent efficacy of the suitble media and apt selection of the words to communicate his or her thoughts.

To grab the attention and engender curiosity or to make one understand the point of view in considerations, one normally employs the highly effective communiction tools in the face of impact articles, blurbs, meet the press-do and other equally potent Public Relation means to influence the opinion of target receivers with a motto to be comprehended in a pristine way.

Inveighing against the Scallywag or simpleton wil not serve the purpose.One needs to blame oneself if one gets misconstrued by the target audiences.

It is not enough to be good, rather what is good should appear and appeal in the exact spirit and letters to the others.One can not afford to leave one's individual image to judged in the furtile imagination of the gawky public vision.

Insincere vision interprets and reinterprets and relying on one's own outlook, considers the overcooked inglorious self-justified interpretation of the given facts as the "Reality".To understand it in perspective, some illustrations can be considered.

A public display of the affection by planting a kiss on the forehead of a beautiful girl may call for a myriad reactions from the public at large.To give a right meaning to that kiss,the person in action will have to make sure to solemnise his act by cautiously selcting a "Raksha Bandhan' Day or the Valentine one!

To absolve himself from the slanderous charge, British Premier David Cameron took the pain to refute the opporobrium.He avered that he may have interacted with Rebekah Brooks in several social gatherings .but he was sure of himself that he had not seen her in her pyjamah.Here, the quote is bound to be misconstrued!

Dominique Strauss Kahn stands a felon in the eyes of the world-community , but his betterhalf Anne Sinclair refuses to accept the said opinion. Furthermore, In the Dominique Stauss-esque act of Arnold Schwarznegger his legitimate wife Maria Shriver took the affront and had preffered to walkout from the wedlock.

An unassuming potter offers a statuette of a deity to a worshipper by charging a paltry sum.The devotee in question offers his prayers to the same deity to be answered in the form of the monitised blessings to the tune of billions or trillions!

In the state of ecstasy, saurabh Ganguli took off his jersey to express his jubiliation at ground of Lords.The moral brigade of the civity finds it in poor test.

Normally, in the state of unbelievable exhilarations,eyes shed tears. Certainly,it doesn't concur in the fitness of the occasion.A tearful eye can give a wrong impression to the viewers.

These are the grotesque illustrations of visualisation of a fact from one's own perspective.

The dictionary meaning is not sufficient to give the soul or the approprite meaning to the expressed words. It is the acceptance of the persona of an individual in the eyes of the target audience or the intention loaded behind the words that give them the intended meaning.
The same expression earns accolade to somebody, whereas the poor soul gets lampooned.Scorns regale nonplussed nonentity for the misconstructions!

The casuality is the eloquent voice that takes refuge in the taciturnity. The fear of getting misinterpreted weighs heavy on the act of the interactive social bondings.The fearful psyche retires in the comfort of the confinement of four walls of one's own room.

Culture and education also contribute to the misconstruction of communication.Hillary Clinton flashes her smile to stamp her total command of the situation on her diplomatic trip to acountry.The healty diplomatic gesture is misconstrued as smirk or smugness.

A commercial spoof enacted in a lighter vein against a particular liquor brand had finished in a acrimonious wrangles.It is believed that the said act has besmirched the pride of offended family and the sensibity of the community in general.

The irony is that the Advertising standards Council of india (ASCI) has failed to find the same under its scanner.

Most of the time, people feel wronged and sensible image suffers the severe jolt.

In the cathartic fit of anger,rumbustious Delhites speak swear words and thus become a picture of rustic dross.The cuss expressed in catharsis may not form the basis to judge the actual self of an individual in said situation.

The studied silence of PM Manmohan Singh agonise The erudite journalist Barkha Dutt. She prodes him to communicate with the people.There is valid apprehension that public find him a non-assertive, remote controlled or a weak PM.But ,the truth may not be the perceived one.She asserts that said silence is bound to be misconstrued in the public eyes.

Hence, it is imperative to honour the wisdom of the people and help them to understand the confused reality.A self regulation is a must and people mustn't be taken for a ride in the garb of the hyperbole!People deseve a semblance of respect and they mustn't be left to lurch in alleys of the perceived ignorance of the actual fact or otherwise compelled to restrain or retort the philosophically correct offender at the first place.

A feminine insight : Race against time

Feminism sprouts out in various colours and forms on the verisimilitude of a perspective, usually defined by the uppity opinions, mundane likes and dislikes of the exiguous constituents i.e the effusive votary of the said ism or the swarm of uptight crybabies living in utopian orb. There is a force that wants one to subscribe one's personal legend.A meticulous effort is made to get the attention!

It is just a chimera to be an oracle in one's world. Penchant for grandeur draws the succour from the cherished "principle of favourability".It would be a fallacy to consider one self as an isolated superior entity in the present day society.

It is an imperative to devise a way to create a collaborative win-win situation for the constituents of the society i.e male and female and the other ilk of human existence living on the margin.Compartmentalization of society doesn't auger well for the prospective generation.

Paternalistic or patriarchal form of the society resulted in lopsided development of the constituents of the all inclusive populace.Male Chauvinism came to fore and given rise to the gender inequality. With the passage of time, the completely illogical or ridiculous thought became a norm.  Logical head failed to anathematize the faux pass and inclined to follow the movement of the body society.The anachronism begs for a change in perception to find its relevance in this modern society which touts out " Achievement and Excellence" as unisex.

Gender is just a biological concept. The whole gamut of the macro considerations of society, has bifurcated the composite conscience of the body society. Improvement in literacy and economic development have sprung up competition on mental surface.Erudition and edification   come to both the sexes.

The follies of the past has been underlined and a string of oleaginous feminine activism came in the being. A Bra -burning movement took place in 70's to uphold the credence that women are at par with men and deserve to be treated  alike.A pink chaddi compaign vehemently opposed the prohibitory notion that women in the pub deserve to be slapped around.

From time to time, feminine discontent and disapproval against the insensitivity of the society cranes up its neck in the face of fancifully orchestrated campaigns and by establishing  different forums to oppose the medieval mind set of the male community.

PPR foundation for women,s Dignity and Rights deserves a special mention in this context. Some of the well known dignitaries like celebrated author Taslima Nasrine, Somali super model Waris Dirie and Hollywood actress salma Hayek, are associated with the said forum .This forum has campaigned against the female genital mutilation. Waris Dirie is herself a victim of the said insensitivity.

In saudi Arabia, as per the law of the land, a is not allowed to drive her car. Manal al-shrief has spearheaded a campaign against it and has drawn the attention of the women to fight for their privilege & right to sit behind the steering wheel of their personal vehicle. It is viewed as an struggle for the gender equality and as an assertion of the fact that women can choose the modern way of living  her life !

Religious perseqution with the pretension of moral superiority over the rest of the world , has also worsened the status of the women in the society. Ashma jahangir- a lawer of supreme court of Pakistan and a social activist par excellence has emerged a robust legal voice of the enfeebled women of the respectice society.

Gender apartheid and gender chauvinism are the world wide phenomenon. The shabby treatment meted out to women are the outcome of the flawed attitude, cultural obstacles etc. prevalent in the particular socity. Emotional and physical violence in  the wdelock by the intimate partner is witnessed elite or rural society.

In the  light of the aforediscussed backdrop, hyperventilation of the feminine concerns against the sexual, psychological and economical crimes are quite understandable.A slut walk in Torrento has been orgaized to protest against the remarks of a local police officer that  reads ,"slut like dressing invites victimization".A senior plice officer, in India, has also cautioned the female to avoid moving alone  in the city at odd hours . Uproarious female voices have denounced  the  miasmatic suggestions.Of coure, playing macho women can,t be solution of the said discmfort.

Here, the method of protest may be wrong one, but this tendency to oppose is a good sign.

The civil society, national govt. and international community have to put their acts together to thwart the nefarious manace that keeps on engulfing the community in qestion.

Undoubtedly, the potential, insight or the wisdom of the women can not be wasted. In the softer domain, women symbolize heart, mind and conscience of the society. A woman is blessed with the intuitive understanding of the truth about people or the situation.This other half of the society is the humanity's greatest untapped resource.

Egomania or self delusion of the male community has undermind the potential of   huge women resources. Khap Panchayat and honour killing of the girls are the bane of modern society.

Sexual harassment at the working place, gender pay gap and barring the women from working in a certain industries or doing particular job etc. are still some of the subject of grave concern for female as a community in particular and soiety in general.Of course, law is at place . But, ineffective implemetation of the same results in the sorry state of the affairs! The empowerment of the women by ensuring their representation in the parliament, judiciary and other enforcement agencies is is imperative to accord them the rightful place in the society.

                Win all, i.e men and women, is call of the time!
                 Let the society win!

Land acquisition row : cause, farmers' expectations , purpose , Govt. initiative

Land Acquisition row : A parade of competitive ambitions

The all encompassing kerfuffle on the question of unmindful land acquisitions by the state govt. agencies , has proved a faux pas.Hapless marginal farmers have been coerced and enticed , a matter of general perception, to
trade off their lives sustaining prized possessions in the face of small holdings of cultivable lands for abysmally factitious price as a fait accompli..

Resentment is the general mood amidst the affected public.Pangs of the sufferings get exacerbated for want of Resettlement and Rehabilitation mechanism,  meant for the displaced  land owners or the riff-raff inhabitants of the acquired areas.The said mechanism should be the prerequisite for the follow up actions.

Commotion amongst the crenellated small land owners, results in law and order problems as the former feel duped for receiving unjustified and improper paltry compensations for the holdings of their lands.Compensations are generally worked out on the basis of previous transaction price . As the development reaches to the place , the exponential rise in the selling price becomes becomes conspicuous and thus engendered discontents give rise to further agitations.

Current upheaval in Bhatta and Parsaul villages of Greater Noida bears the vulgur testimony of this act.The attendant socio-political activism eclipses the societal peace and harmony .
In the backdrop of the aforesaid facts, it can be easily ratiocinated that land acquisition exercise has got several ramifications: Viz. Socio-economic affectations and their impacts; competitive political machinations and mind boggling judicial wrangles etc.

The social bearings on the displaced farmers are the palpable ones. Land acquisition marks the end of the vibrant local economy and eats away the employment of the inhabitant landless workers and skilled workers in general and marginal farmers who are forced to part with their land in the wake of acquisition process in particular.

New found riches clasping the beneficiaries of the land sales results in extravagance.False status notions come into force and easy earned compensation fritters away on erection of pompous buildings, luxury vehicles and procurement of licensed gun as a symbol of social status.Urbanization , as an attendant consequence, touches the lives of the  affected people and latter forges a  social collage of skill deficit , desired for urban livings. City life proves inhospitable and non-inclusive for rural gentry.
In absence of the continuous source of livelihood, unemployed but rich youths get high on booze as they find themselves out of sink in the pulsating urban life.Steep hike in dowry - a social malaise, has been also witnessed as the recipient of the fortune, earned out of the land sales , fail to protect themselves voluptuous eyes of the non-kosher claimant of the same.
Land insures the rural life and subsists them.Compensation earned out of land sales,  get distributed among the stake holders of the joint family and it augers worse for the imminent future!

It is imperative on the part of govt.agencies and corporate magnates to work in tandem to address these problems. Compensation package should be designed and in an apposite manner to the beneficiary to avoid the imminent social catastrophe.

Political Machination and its fall out:

Land is an emotional issue and its acquisition exercise easily hogs the headlines of the news papers and it dishes out electronic media umpteen stories to catch the eye balls of the viewers.
Politicians and political parties don't resist their temptations to capitalize on the such emotive issues to strengthen their political stake.Singur and Nandigram are the apt illustration of the said proposition.Street smart  politician like Ms. Mamta Bannerjee has exploited it to the hilt and bulldozed the invincible citadel of the Communist.
In the very recent past , major political parties like Congress, BJP et al  had sneaked in Bhatta and Parsaul, singing in political conflagration, to gain  political capital. Manveer Tewtia has been alleged for orchestrating and fomenting trouble in the said areas for his political ambitions.Political indulgence inflicts excruciating trouble to the innocent land losers as a turf war triggered off  for political advantages

Judicial Wrangles .
The entropy of the social discontent takes recourse to the judicial help to get the reversal of the acquisitioned land .Working on the conspicuous loop holes in the Act, legal Helps have hit the court to champion the cause of land losers.Judiciary has responded much to the relief of the complainants. In this context, it would be apt to cite the verdict of Allahabad High Court.The court has denotified a large tract of lands in Shahberi, Suraj pur and Gulistan pur  (UP).
Inspired by the  aforesaid judgement,several other villages have sought the legal help to serve their interest, viz. Bisrakh, Patwadi , Heda, Khairpur.etc.
Displaced people, ecological activists, NGOs and politicians keep on meddling with the project on acquired land by indulging in judicial wrangle and hamper the completion of the project work on time for  their kosher or unreasonable reasons.
Pohang Iron and Steel company (POSCO), Vedanta et al are some of the pathetic examples of the callous approach of the zealots in this context.
