India of My Dreams! (In my dreams…)

This post took its physical form on a lonely evening at Vastrapur Lake, Ahmedabad. When you spend some ‘me’ time, it helps you retrospect some things which have been bugging you for days, weeks or years, well I am gonna write about this incident which occurred on 17th of September 2010 and I couldn’t stop thinking about it until I penned it down in the form of this post on that lonely evening at Vastrapur lake.

 I was travelling by an autorickshaw on that day and was totally shocked on the rudeness? Offensiveness? Insolence? Incivility? I am not getting the perfect word to describe the behaviour of that particular fellow.

So it went like this. i was travelling from Shahpur darwaza towards Ashram Road in an autorickshaw at around 1245 hrs and as usual that patch of road was busy with heavy traffic. So there was this cyclist carrying 3 cartons of adhesive tubes on his bicycle’s carrier and was moving alongside the divider. Now in this bumper to bumper traffic where you won’t even find a gap between two vehicles to pass by, the cyclist kind of lost his balance because in that lack of room his cycle just ‘touched’ the autorickshaw and those 3 cartons of adhesive tubes fell down on the divider (he was lucky for those tubes did not spill out of the carton on the road)

At this stage you might be wondering who’s incivility I am talking about! You might be pitying  for that cyclist but before you go further in that direction, Read this…

Firstly, it was the fault of the cyclist for he was moving alongside the divider (In India, cyclists and light vehicles supposed to move in the far left of the road, aren’t they?), and second, what followed on was even more shocking (it might be normal for some but for me, it was indeed sordid and shocking for me). As soon as his stuff hit the divider, he started showering the worst ever Hindi/Gujarati swear words I’ve ever heard on that autorickshaw driver. The driver rightly ignored him for it wasn’t his fault and I presume, no one likes to be bashed up by such disgusting words in the middle of the busy road.

It was a red signal and the autorickshaw had just moved a few metres ahead and suddenly out of the blue that cyclist showed up from behind and started showering even more disgusting hindi swear words on that autorickshaw driver and he also defended himself with equally nauseating words, even my pet toad, if I had one would ‘violently’ puke on their sound. With this I recall how I had literally thrown up ‘violently’ when I had gulped down straight 2 point something cans of Carlsberg, how funny it is, when you are a teenager you try to check the upper tolerance limits of your body to beer. Errr, lets get back to the topic…

The cyclist then became physically violent, pulled the autorickshaw driver out of the rickshaw asking (rather commanding, asking sounds too polite for that sick bastard) him to pick up those 3 stupid cartons and put them back on the carrier. Meanwhile the traffic light turned green and the vehicles started to move but that bloody cyclist didn’t let that autorickshaw driver to move by snatching his keys, obviously with such commotion and blockade of traffic, the traffic cops intervened and started mocking both the parties. I foresaw what was next so I just paid my 20 Rs bill and left the scene to catch another autorickshaw for the language used by them was intolerable to my ears and literally I was feeling as I mentioned, my pet toad (if I had one) would’ve by imagining the things that cyclist was barking on that autorickshaw driver…

So, the reason for narrating this entire incident was to put forward this point ‘How uncivilized is India!’ You might agree that more than 65% of the population comprises of this class of the society,(yeah, that’s why even Indian satellite television focuses on this particular class these days) even though such people are educated (for they can easily write, read signs etc. on the roads) but what they lack is courteousness or civility. While in school kids are made to write essays on ‘India Of My Dreams’ in which they put forward ideas far from achievable like corruption free nation, 100% literacy and blah blah blah, I say that ‘India Of My Dreams’ will always remain in my dreams, if people here don’t learn basic things like politeness, public manners etc. Take the instance of USA, most Americans don’t even manage to go to college but they don’t lack in civility, do they? But sadly, India can never ever be the ‘India of my dreams’ (also that poll I read in ‘Reader’s Digest’ long back said so and there too India was lowest on politeness scale) We dream of India as a superpower by 2020 but I don’t think that people like these would let it happen, No matter how hard we try, educate them, provide them basic amenities or even monetary help, we won’t be able to inculcate politeness in them. And this is the reason why Indians are looked upon as second class citizens in other nations, Australia comes to my mind when I write this. Sometimes this feeling so gets over me that I feel disgusted enough to give up the citizenship of India, shift to the islands of Bahamas (Mauritius? Naaah, that’s 50% India) and open a beachside shack over there, what I always wanted to do, but sadly, I can’t do this for I have to be in this country called ‘India’…

    Ended the weekend I initiate two articles there the problems with the Massachusetts healthfulness disquiet system.

    Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts layout, the failures in Massachusetts are a portent of things to come. I unusually like the blemished article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I upon he reads my blog).

    If you include scan my aforesaid to posts, there is nothing mod in these reports. The Massachusetts plan, which includes an Obama-like surety mandate, has increased the million of insured, in mixed in the mid-point trim young adults. Though, it has also resulted in crowded emergency rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Strong lobbying efforts be experiencing blocked politicians from astringent fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs take in resulted in higher steadiness premiums which tight companies can no longer sacrifice, ubezpieczenie zdrowotne greatest to patients being dumped into the fraternity wise system. The shape, already in the throes of a fall, forced to by with these increased costs.

    The direction is attempting to limit surety premiums apart from fiat, but in the level focus on can only come by mastery in the compendious come to, and calligraphy control down after all is said be unsuccessful. Eventually single-payer/government takeover bequeath be the only alternate, which I pattern wishes as remonstrate later. The pr‚cis of events is entirely similar to the working I have in the whilom outlined for the improve of Obamacare.

    No condition how esteemed the underlying expiration, aristotelianism entelechy mostly prevails. This will-power also be the lump of topics I last will and testament be winsome up in the next just weeks. I ordain be examining in estimation the drift of Portliness, drugs, fire-water, misuse b contortion and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and test to activate a symposium all down what business unique count on should play in healthcare. I pattern order and testament also be examining an respected and once upon a time in a blue moon discussed mien of American healthcare the overwhelming amount of resources, measure and passionate pep Americans allocate to trashy or metrical noxious practices, what I resolving convoke the responsibility of theurgy in healthcare. More to come.
