Regular reader of my blog must be missing the updates for quite a long time. The reason is that I am back home (India) for a short visit to celebrate Eid with my family members.
This is a rule of my mom that everyone from family, wherever and whatever doing, should visit home for Eid celebrations. And I just being a follower dropped myself in a flight and came to India.
As you may be knowing that Muslims fast whole month in Ramadan as thanks giving, because Quran was revealed during this month. Ramadan in real is a training to be more pious and humble, tolerant and god fearing. On the first day of Shawwal (a month after Ramadan) Muslims celebrate Eid as an indication of successful completion of fasting.
I took eleven hours in flight and every time I visit I feel that things may not change anytime sooner in India. Right from airport you see people touch your luggage and ask for dollars, raid a bus forget the change that should come in return after buying the ticket and finally take an auto rickshaw to home, the driver will ask for Rs 20/- and after reaching the destination he will ask for more money as if it was his right.
Anyway, these are just common situations in India we face in our everyday life, but usually get ignorant. These are big issues for folks visiting home after spending long time in developed nations. I don’t know how much time it will take to change this attitude. We can not be developed and happily living with corruption and not willing to change our attitude at the lowest level. I hope one day we change and I positive we do 🙂
As soon as I reached home I was hit by deserter of no Internet connection and huge load shading (electricity cuts). Though I wrote few posts in flights and transit time can not post them because of these. I will reread, correct and post them regularly now and them, from now onwards.
Sometimes I feel we Indian do too good outside India because the problem and distraction we face here are high and without these everyday issues we perform our best, utilize resources properly and grow faster. I pray for a developed India one day, where can use our energies and strength in a constructive way and contribute to the growth of India and whole humanity.
