The Balancing act.. II – Food for Thought

The urban reality..
Big towns getting bigger and villages going bare..
would there be an opportunity worked up to grow the villages , it seems rare…

What should be the balancing act..!!

The SEZ mania is right under way ..
Surely everything’s a profitable business..
Then where is the need to worry .. !!! what say.. !!

If many a Singur are vacated..
Where would be the land to cultivate the pastures..
With land and the harvest prices going high.. no wonder in the times to come .. humans will be back to square one.. War for food..
Thinking of it.., it seems so ill fated ..
Sensible approach by the government.. seems good..

Aping brings ease and faster execution but tailoring it to our needs and utility ..
such should be our ability..

What should be the balancing act.. !!

And what unfathomable reason draws many a farmer to suicide..
And without the farmers , who will harvest the land..
The green revolutionized land ..
having self sufficiency to cater the entire population may one day bow into the imports ..
And aren’t there any rules and relaxations which they could , without hesitation abide..

What should be the balancing act.. !!

A film city given way to come up near Nal sarovar..An abode for migratory birds..
A tourist center.. attracting tourists to watch migratory birds,
will now more than attracting the poor migratory birds attract the filmy nerds..
Why is there no Environmental impact assessment done .. prior to passing such projects..
Or is it that profitability gives way to such issues and projects..

What should be the balancing act..!!

With Consumerism setting its long strides..
Looking to the lucrative markets here..
Its becoming a dump yard of products mere..
Everything’s available at one go..
But its always good to take care of our needs.. without bowing to extravaganza and the ease of availability..

What should be our balancing act..!!

All this seems like broad or vague or extremist thinking … but on the other go .. an extended thinking and a food for thought..
’cos aren’t these points of concern..
A thinking mind keeps thinking .. what should be the balancing act..!!


The Balancing act.. I

Could it be that sometime from now.. it would be India Vs India..
A population of a billion .. going strong.. as it takes strides to cover all possible sectors of employment ..
An Indian in an Indian firm working in India, An Indian working in a MNC in India or an Indian in an Indian firm abroad or an Indian in a MNC working abroad…
It’s the India Poised ….!!

If loyalty plays a part .. would India be loyal to the other India working for the rest of the world….!!

And what should be the balancing act…
Doing good for own self is prime and apparent .. but carrying its fruits for the greater mass – it should be such an act… !!

Tommy's day out

What would it be to live life like a pet dog..
Freedom tied down to its belt..
no peer community rules to follow.. only tamed human emotions heartfelt
Trained at the acrobatics and the human barks..
Would it ever understand a dog’s bark..
