About that President

​I am and will always be a huge Hillary Clinton fan. However, the American election results today have not just declared a win for Mr. Trump they have sent a message to the clearly biased media, politicians who have no intention of fighting terror, instead choosing to have an apologetic white guilt attitude for vote banks, the closed off system where the common man can never be President and where people are sick of hearing lies. Hillary Clinton didn’t lose to Trump. She lost to a tired common man who just wants the truth. Instead the media made life hell for anyone who even thought of voting Republican, calling them racist, bigots, anti lgbt even if all they may have been is someone who just didn’t want the same crap for another 4 years. Maybe they wanted to know why they should vote Democrat instead of why they shouldn’t vote Trump. Trump took advantage of this and swayed the common man. He promised that he wouldn’t be like the rest of the club in Washington. Everyone saw the same weird, orange, egotistic, chauvinistic dick he is but that’s exactly what worked. The veneer of perfection and pristine “greatness” has lost its charm in America and around the world. They want someone who’s anti establishment, anti terror. Personally as a long time Hillary supporter I felt her loss today. But it’s a new day for India-US ties which have always suffered under the Clintons. It’s a huge loss for the biased media, and hopefully terror. America has spoken. President Trump it is. 


Lost Hope

​It eats at me in silence

A little more everyday

Until one day I am no more

Than an empty husk inside

This silence in me is jarring

And there’s nothing I can do

Because what can one do?

When all you care about is gone?

And the light at the end of the tunnel

Is naught to be seen

When the loneliness hits

And the emptiness makes itself known

When life seems like nothing

But Lost Hope.

Cause and effect

​People in this country do not seem to understand cause and effect. Every action you take or words you speak have an effect, a response. They expect that they will spout their opinions, make statements that have enormous implications and will suffer no backlash. This isn’t about religion, politics or economics. No. This is about cause and effect. The most popular of Newton’s laws. ‘Every action will have an equal and opposite reaction’ Remember this law. Tattoo it on your forehead. Understand that everytime you say or do something there will be consequences, regardless of your intentions. That is why ‘think before you speak/act’ is imbibed in us from a young age. This responsibility increases a hundred fold when you have some pull in society. This pull may be in the form of money, power or fame. India is not insulated from the world. When you say things like this country is inhabitable, violent and intolerant, the world watches. The world judges. They do not, and will not know the ground reality, but will come to the conclusion that somehow in the short term of this new regime, India has let go of 1000’s of years of unity. Forget the world stage. In India itself, these irresponsible statements have manufactured a sense of disharmony and fear. So yes, if India has had enough, if India wants to show its displeasure via peaceful protest and rant like tweets and facebook posts, it isn’t intolerance. It is a response. It is cause and effect. Jai Hind.
