A Dream

A Dream

Hey there

Lets sail
away

Only two
of us

In an
island

Of our
own

Tryin to
build

A dream

Me collectin
the wood

Sweat on
the body

The magic
from you

Shapin it
into a
nest

A smile
on your
face

Hey there

Lets sail
away

Only two
of us

In an
island

Of our
own

We could
wake up

Into the
mornin Sun

By each
other’s side

And tweet

A Love
Melody

Hand in
hand

Which will
stop

The time
passin by

Melt into
each other

Our hearts
strung together

For life
into one

Hey there

Lets sail
away

Only two
of us

In an
island

Of our
own

The Real Poor Of India

February 27, 2011

The Real Poor Of India

(This is a gut-feel blog with only an overview of the poverty in India. More data in coming months)

I have always wondered what is Poverty? Where are the poor people in the World besides watching some of them on TV? How do they live? Why isn’t their condition improving and many other questions. So I started studying about the poor a year back and looking out for them in the interiors of my country, India (I also plan to do trips in Africa & China)

Some facts of the Poor People Across the World

1. 3 Billion Poor People On Earth
2. Mostly in India, AfricaChina
3. No resources with them except for some food, water, huts
4. Natural Habitat being destroyed by pollution of capitalist economies and machines – land, water and atmosphere pollution
5. No education
6. Disease & Illness with little incentive for Pharma companies to provide medicine.
7. Droughts, Famines and other natural disasters (due to capitalist economies) is rapidly degrading their chances of survival. Most of these havoc are created due to man affecting the environment inversely.
8. Liberalization & Capitalization will hardly help the poor people (Che Guevara’s Point). It will only improve the condition of people who have some resources at their disposal.

Some Facts of Poor in India

Year      Poorest   Poor    LMC    MMC   UMC      Rich
1990     625          200     100      50       20       5
2000     600          250      150     150    100      25
2010     610          210     125     100      75       20

(All figures in million)
LMC: Lower Middle Class
MMC: Middle Middle Class
UMC: Upper Middle Class
1991- Liberalization of India, saving her from bankruptcy

The Poorest & Poor form the “Have’s – Not” of the Indian Society. The LMC, MMC, UMC & Rich form the “Have’s” of the Indian Society.

How to avoid harming the already very poor people?

1. Any capitalist expansion (home, office, fun) has to be there with a mandatory environment blue print.
2. Zero Waste (Wal-Mart)
3. Contribution to environment has to be more than taking from it.

How do you lift these poor folks out of poverty?

Che Guevara’s is the only person known in history to have fought for the poor people (As he stayed with the extreme poor for a year). There is yet to be a person other than him who have contributed to the poor (The Real Poor) at such a large-scale. All other people have harmed their existence more than contributing to them.

He fought all his life against America as he considered it to be a capitalist imperialistic force which was responsible for the endemic poverty in South America. He was looking for a more socialistic model than a capitalist one (However it seems, he was unsuccessful in implementing them)

Anti-imperialism

The Lives of 3 Billion People at stake? Anyone listening? How can we lift these folks out of poverty? Is there a way at all? How can anyone in the World from the “Have’s” area think about the people who are from the “Have’s Not” area? It is impossible for the construct of the mind to permit this at all. Theoretically impossible. These are all questions which we would need to answer in the coming years.

The only possible way which i think (Again i am man from the “Have’s” area) is to contribute to the richness of the environment of the World. This in turn will enrich the lives of the poor and give them a chance to pull themselves out of poverty. All other measures would be half-measures.

P.S: I am yet to see a really poor village, although i plan to visit one and stay out there for some time.

Spicy

February 21, 2011

Spicy

Spicy lookin
out the
window

Watin for
her friend

Day in &
day out

It’s a
cat

With me
on the
bed

A lightin
strikes

One day

And Spicy
vanishes

Poof!

I set out
to find
her

In the trail
of the
cat

Did she
had magical
powers?

I stumble
on a
stair

And find
myself
in Wonderland

Strange place
I must tell
you

Vast lush
green lands

Crystal clear
water

Open Skies
with the most
beautiful birds

Never experienced
such a
wonder

Where am
I?

Looks like
heaven to
me

A distant
hut

By the
river

I can see
my own
shadow

In the
shallow banks

I walk
along

And knock
at the
door

There are
all animals

From cats,
dogs to
rats

Eatin &
makin merry

I look
around

But see
no Spicy

I walk
away

Further into
the hinterland

The forest
cover gettin
dense

Not a single
soul nearby

I begin to
run

Shoutin out
“Spicy”

There are
some snakes
around

And some
wild bulls

Several miles
away

My heart
pumpin

And my body
hungry &
thirsty

I sit
down

Broken-hearted

Wonderin what
to do?

Have i lost
Spicy forever?

A lick
on the
back

I wake up
and look
behind

I am
back

On my
bed

And Its
Spicy

Hurray!

Oasis Of Love

February 20, 2011

I have been
surfin

Through the
desert

People with
out a
emotion

All I am
lookin is

For a
spark

And an
Oasis

To quench
my thirst

For Love

Girls with
a pile
of cash

Handsome men
on leash

A tight
body

And no
heart

All I am
lookin is

For a
dance

And a
spin

Into the
night

Women with
fast cars

And short
dresses

Sharp looks
& bland
faces

Lookin out
for a
light

All I am
lookin is

For a
conversation

And a bit
of romance
