Today I am in a foul mood. In the national capital the sick are beginning to die one after the other. These are the poor who have no other means except going to a government hospital. The meritorious doctors are on strike so there is no one to attend to the dying. They want merit to win for the good of the nation. Otherwise how do we join the developed world in a nanoblink of the eye? Their great struggle for justice is beamed across the nation incessantly like some intellectual napalm that it scorches your mucus tissues first and then burns your skin rapidly. No, usually I donâ€™t swear but am close to it right now. With a degree in one of those II* places you can pontificate for eternity to all the lowly around you about merit, the curious phenomenon of its sudden appearance in free India and its abundance among the upper castes of this country. It is a national shame really.
I am fed up and giving up on the educated elite. I thought a sense of fair play, a hint of decency and a shred of sympathy for a fellow citizen will be attributes you may exhibit as a result of a well rounded education you are gifted with- subsidised totally by the people of the country. A sense of gratitude perhaps for the others who take pride in these institutions even though none in their families have ever enjoyed the privileged life you have in one of the II*s. And these guys think they deserve them. It is a gift the nation gave you man, and you know the so called intellect is as abundant as oxygen in this planet among the animals that chose to walk on their hind legs. Merit! Gosh, is it like say, 'achtung'? These are a bunch of selfish, clannish and racist neuron assemblies. No hope. Welcome to naya bharat.
