Finally, it’s here – the last of the teens. Last year, the year 2000’s turned 18 and now we are looking it to turn a new chapter. Oddly enough, it’ll be the last year we can call 2000’s teenager. May be enough of pranks and turn things serious.
Delhi, as always breached all pollution levels and continue to threaten the life while our Governments both centre and state continue to ignore and play dirty politics. We’ve celebrities endorsing a no-cracker Diwali but then compensate on their weddings. Companies promoting products for sale to build a healthy lifestyle by chopping off the life giving trees (without new plantation).
People are becoming smarter and need better governance, while there are few who love to go to ballot paper and reverse the digital era. We’ve Supreme Court whose judges enjoy a healthy amount of vacation can open doors for terrorists at midnight, pass judgement on religion but no time to expedite the pending cases which span years.
Aadhaar, probably a scheme no one liked initially to a something everyone wanted (I liked it for I’d have one ID proof which is online) to basic tatters. Instead of separating the monetary angle, the ease of use was scrapped. In my honest opinion, both Government and Activists have been high headed and no one tried to solve a problem but just highlight.
A lot of people have sacrificed their life for India’s independence. Many want separate state, some a separate country. A lot of people have tried keeping it together. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel happened to be the first and the most known. We got the tallest statue in the world but I still feel if it was needed. This has indirectly started a war of claims to build more statues. Build a park with statues of all great leaders or may be make our own wax museum like Madame Tussauds.
Some great movies this year. Big names failed, new names ruling the charts & hearts. Intelligent movies are being appreciated. Character actors are gaining the limelight more than the main lead. An indication that even though it is the last teenage years of year 2000s, they don’t need to act like one. Someone said, movies are an indication of the society.
The millennials will now be part of building the nation in next year General Elections 2019. I hope we all will learn from past and build the nation instead of acting like teenagers or playing dirty politics. On this note, I wish everyone a very Happy New Year – 2019.
