:Wasted time, wasted youth (sigh)
Was reading the news on my favourite news source, and stumbled upon this link. The gist of the article is this:
Protestors burn an effigy of "Dubiya" (Bush) to protest against his naming his pet cat "India". C'mon dudes. cant you think of something else to protest? I mean I am patriotic, but not Chauvinistic patriotic. There are a 100 thousand other issues to think and protest about, and you guys (Prathikarana Vedi - "Forum for Protestations" in Malayalam, which happens to be my mother tongue too) found only this? No wonder my state (Kerala) is reaching nowhere. Protests for this, protests for that, protests for every freaking thing. Why do we need to politicize everything around us? Ofcourse, by us, I mean us Keralites here. We got to motivate ourselves into pursuing something more productive. We boast ourselves to be the most educated society in India, with a wealth of knowledge, but are we really showing it? Instead, we waste it on so many sundry matters, that we lose identity of ourselves. We have lost ourselves somewhere along the line. We need to gather it back.
Nothing like wasting human talent. Unfortunately, that is something India as a country needs to understand too. What am I blabbering here? I just get frustrated when I see such lame stuff being reported in the news. Afterall, did people really have the time to spend on such things????? I wonder.........
