It has been over a month that I wrote anything here while there are so many thoughts churning around in my mind. Let me try to put across some recent ones.
I am unable to find words to say how I feel about Nepal tragedy. All I can say is May God protect everyone. What pains me more is the way some of our prominent persons have been saying that Delhi is prone to much more damage if any earthquake strikes as most of the buildings do not conform to safety standards while most of them are persons who are also talking loudly for regularisation of unauthorised colonies for their political gains. Why these double standards?
I decided to get Aadhar Card made for self and wife as our government is insisting for the same, though not for any other reason. So after filling due forms and attaching photocopies of required documents I went to deposit the same at one of close Aadhar centres but found that that they accept only 60 applications a day from 9 in the morning. So next day I reached there at 8:30 in the morning only to find more than 100 persons already in queue. On asking I learnt that they start queuing up from 5 in the morning. I do not know if my age and health will permit me to do that. Should the government not make it more convenient for elderly persons who wish to obey rule to make the said card?
Recently media has been giving a lot of coverage to Salman Khan case which has been going on for more than a decade. I agree with their projection that he is a good actor as well as a good person as per what is known about his social activities but does that mean that if found guilty he should be condoned of his acts? Will the media also take up cudgels for many more persons who face similar criminal charges but are also good human beings? Should the law not be applicable to each of us without any prejudices?
