Being Over-sensitive

I don’t know if its a trend all over the world or its just a case in India, but this certainly is not something very appreciable. People here are becoming extra-patriotic and leave no chance to troll those who has an opinion regarding the country.

Snapchat CEO suddenly got very (in)famous in India over his alleged statement regarding the country. Although it has not yet been proved but even if he said so, there was nothing wrong in that. He is a person and a corporate man  and has full right to express his opinions. So what if he is not ready to expand his business in a country which he thinks is poor and actually is poor! “This app is only for rich people,” Spiegel said,  “I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain.”

People in mass started trolling him on social networks and too many Indians even uninstalled the app to express their anger over his remark. This protest went too far and Snapchat had to issue several official statements, denying “Poor India” remark.

Something similar happened a few years ago, when Maria Sharapova had to face the wrath of Indian cricket fans given her non familiarity with the Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. She was heavily trolled on Twitter just because she was not knowing about this player of a game which is played in some 10 or 12 countries. And this keeps happening every other day where a celebrity gets heavily trolled for his/her opinions.

People here have become over sensitive and have no ears for any criticism or even a simple fact stating some harsh truth. Wish we could get a little mature and stop paying extra-attention to silly things and work hard for a country prosperous enough to not attract unwanted remarks.

JAI HIND 🙂

Are You A Feminist/Anti-feminist??

Why I’m a feminist…

  • I’m a feminist not because of my views/opinions, only because it feels so cool to poke people over senseless things and no one can speak against me (because you know am a feminist!)
  • I like people to see myself as someone very oppressed and victimized (even though am not) just to play politics and to grab one or two opportunities.
  • I don’t fight for equal rights. I fight for superior rights.
  • I can do whatever I would like to do (no matters its legal or what) because am the flag bearer of feminism and can stop you from enjoying even your basic human rights because you are a man!
  • I can mock and make comment on anybody, anytime because am equal (actually superior) and its my right to express things but you cannot say a thing about any women because its sexist (its not btw!)
  • I will ask for reservations and quotas wherever it is possible to make things easy for me and I guess it wouldn’t be that tough (because FEMINISM is my weapon!)
  • I know I have got equal rights and the world is really not that bad for me but sorry, feminism is my bread and butter and you have no right to snatch that!

Why I’m anti-feminist…

  • I’m an anti feminist because I cannot tolerate women having equal accesses and rights.
  • Strong woman makes me feel insecure and weak
  • Feminists are challenge to my masculinity
  • Ruling over women is my birth right and none of you can change that
  • I do believe, that the women are sent to the world only because they have to serve all the men and am not ashamed of that.
  • I beat and assault women, because its my responsibility to save women from getting out of their limits.
  • I like to live in the world where women are objectified
  • I enjoy the fact that men are preferred in the workplace because women have or might have children in the future
  • I love the way women are portrayed in computer games, comics  and movies.
  •  I would like to respect women but sorry assaulting them is the only way for me to feel superior and privileged!

Why I’m none…

  • I’m neither a feminist nor an anti-feminist because I don’t look up to humans as men or women but as other human.
  • For me the rights of all the human beings should b entertained irrespective of gender or any other bias.
  • The one who is at fault, should get the punishment be it a man or woman.
  • I don’t believe in playing victim for my benefits.
  • I don’t believe that anybody is inferior and thus don’t assault others to prove my point.
  • I Respect you and expect the same.

whats your take on this?

Racism and Making America Great Again

Yesterday, an Indian man was killed (and two injured) after this american lad shot him dead at a bar at Kansas (U.S.). This was not some regular attack but purely was a racist one, where this killer yelled “get out of my country” before shooting the victim. It really shook the people back at home in India. This is how India’s foreign minister responded –

I don’t know if the newly elected POTUS should be blamed for all the recent racist attacks or this racism was always there, but Trump surely has never criticized any single racist attack! Being the president of a country which has a rich heritage of embracing people from all over the world , a responsible behaviour is always expected.

I’m really sorry for the man who attacked the victim, had he known the contribution of India in the US economy, he would never have done this. He and people like him should be aware of  the following facts before yelling again!

As many as 12% scientists and 38% doctors in the US are Indians, and in NASA, 36% or almost 4 out of 10 scientists are Indians. 
If that’s not proof enough of Indian scientific and corporate prowess, digest this: 34% employees at Microsoft, 28% at IBM, 17% at Intel and 13% at Xerox are Indians.

With a whopping 29.4 per cent increase, a record high of 132,888 Indian students studying in the US in 2015/16 academic year contributed $3.6 billion to the US economy, (according to a new report).
Imagine a US with no Indians and u ll know! and why only Indians , but everybody else too, who come from all over the world and contribute to the progress of the states, imagine the US without  them and you ll have nothing but regret!

America has made this progress only because of its heritage and power of adaptability and how it has the opportunity for everyone irrespective of color, gender, and nationality. America has always been welcoming and has embraced people from all over the places. No one should forget that the power of America doesn’t lies in its nukes but in its unity! Don’t let anybody ruin that.

Like the Trump says, Lets Make America Great Again! How I wish, Trump knew the meaning of Greatness!
