Largest revolt in Singapore in 4 decades !!!!

The recent news on violence in Little India and the racist online remarks is the concise story of a phenomena repeated around the world. All great cities be it the new cities in United Arab Emirates, towering buildings of New York or now even Singapore are build by marginalized people from third world countries. Their aspiration in life is limited,  yet basic respect is a distant dream for them..

They arrive in hordes, work in the severest of conditions, build great cities and yet live unseen by us..
When they do react, or speak up.. they are swiftly hushed up with instant doling out of freebies and slowly the world goes back to its usual hum...

Can there be equality in real ? Minimum wages that are followed ? Process for wage correction and welfare.. or is too marxist an idea...

Speaking of marxism, the reality in china is no different. Subjugation, encroaching personal freedom and inequality affect a large portion of the urban chinese population.

Therefore there is only crony marixism and crony capitalism..neither has space for equality...

Fastest communication

Have you ever wondered which is the fastest mode of communication... and the most trusted for some reason..well its your local grapevine.

Recently, when I was interacting with my daughter's nanny and enquiring for a help for a friend's aquaintance.. she very categorically asked the lady's name or description. This kind of quirked my interest, but I gave in told her the apartment number.

The next day, I get a full report of this aqauaintance whom I have never met, complete with all family details, and a report card. Unfortunately she did not have a good ranking and therefore my nanny refused to be of any service to her !.

This made me wonder, what is my report card rating ? How do these seemingly unstructured group of people work or communicate ? It was a horrible thought, imagine you go about your regular day always with the thought that there would be so many judging eyes around or my home and family will be under the scanner at a tea time chit chat...

Well.. but isn't this the most common and fastest mode of communication, whether the office grapevine or at a housing complex, one of the great indian weddings wherever...

A new movement in Indian politics... AAP & New generation parties


So finally the Aam Aadmi has finally arrived...

 

AAP’s fantastic win over the city state of Delhi is telling tale of  how much India’s urban young population is fed up of the politics of caste, religion, power broking and non stop corruption.. True that Kejriwal and team has limited exposure to the nuances of political governance.. but the people’s ruling is a fresh mandate.. fresh slate…
 

This is think is the start of a new revolution in Indian political scenario…the start of new generation parties.. Post-independence and post emergency, there has been no other great movement here.. this is true to the Indian mindset of leaving things as it is.. Janne do !.. Chalne do! And getting on with their life…
 

With the AAP’s win, there is a certain belief that it need not be a choice between the devil and the deep sea always.. and some amount of focus, dedication can help in being a voice of change.


This could be the start of a host of new generation parties.. who are neither anti-capitalists, not bound by religion or by regional politics..


Another significant aspect is that there is a large group of young Indians who have voted for this first time now.. this young generation has very different needs from the 1940’s to 1970’s generation. They are far more literate, exposed to the ways of the modern world and yet to fall into the trap of region and religion. These are the group of people who will vote in the coming general elections and they I hope will bring about the change that India needs…
