May Good Sense Prevail!

In the world full of rumble, we all get fancied by the noise that surrounds someone's life, death and tragedy. Not that we are always attached or emotionally invested; it just keeps us animated and comforts that the problems aren't unusual for us. I felt deeply upset when the tragic news on Sushant cracked, could relate to him for the journey he had and for the ambition he always exhibited(was in the early 30s like me). But now I am feeling terrible with the kind of clatter that has surrounded this unfortunate incident. The media mostly picked up the larger sentiment and worked hard to create a soap opera which now most of us are watching with popcorns. While I sincerely wish peace for the departed soul, I also extend my sympathies to the 10s of people who have been completely deprived of their privacy and have already been declared as accused by this juvenile media trial. It is so sad to see their timelines and posts being responded with trolls, abuses and stark criticism. I hope we realise that they all also belong to families like us and that such free ride to justice could, someday, also hit us in the same way. May good sense prevail!

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks. 
The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr…

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have. 
I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat. 
I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing th…
