MESSAGE TO COMMONWEALTH BASHERS: LEAVE DELHI ALONE !

First of all, a heartiest thanks to the moronic Paki cricketers who indulged in some nice match-fixing and helped Indians take their mind off Commonwealth mess. After all, we may be a nation full of shitty assholes but our sporting icons arent tainted ( We also boast of the GOD Himself). Moreover, its always a sadistic pleasure to see Pakistan getting what they truly deserve: humiliation. Besides, what more can you expect from a nation whose President goes on foreign trips, hires women "guides" and refuses to pay them! ( Link here ).

Fuck Yeah ! We are to Pakistan what USA is to us and we are loving it! YAY !

Now, back to the issue at hand : Commonwealth.. nay; Delhi city itself.

I dont give a shit about Commonwealth now. I also dont give a damn for Chetan Bhagat but for once I agree with what he said in his column in this Sunday's Times of India. Boycott these games! I wont however, delve into the reasons for we all know them already. You know.. corrupt games etc etc . What I am concerned about is my city.. my Delhi and its image.

Its no secret that news channels go berserk everytime theres rain in Delhi nowadays and jams happen because of ongoing construction work. I actually appreciate that media is highlighting the issues and keeping Government on its toes. But what bugs me is the style in which these assholes project this. Just a few days back, I saw this news-piece on IBN7 where they had compared Delhi to hell !!.

The loosers even invented a term for this which i dont remember. That made my blood boil so much that I just wanted to go full Sunny-Deol on that anchor. What the fuck? You may highlight the issues but how dare you disrespect my home just for the sake of creating sensationalism. Although coming from IBN7, I am not surprised about this as this idiotic channel ranks next only to India TV in "quality news" ; but I wont tolerate anyone calling my home that. Fuck you.

Infact, I dont see any difference between these news channels and many Delhi-ites ... most of whom are bloody hypocrites: throwing their garbage on streets and then shouting that " our capital aint very clean".

But, arent we all missing a vital point here? Spare a thought about the city itself. Its crying for attention. These assholes-in-arms namely Municipal Corp, Delhi Govt., CWG organizing Committee etc have thrown this city out of gear. Its not the city's fault that due to the third rate planning of these morons, rubble is lying everywhere and jams are happening. The trouble is that when this happens; majority people shout that its Delhi! No morons.. its not. Its Kalmadi. Its Mrs Dikshit. Its MCD. Blame the right targets.








The city needs its citizens more than ever today. Dont curse the city. Dont litter. Dont forget about the CWG scams after the games ( they say public memory is too short.. Not this time!). File PILs against the looters. Many invaders over the ages have plundered Delhi but the current lot takes the bloody cake. Theres so much stuff we can do by genuinely loving the city, cant we? ( ** More suggestions invited in comments - Thanks)

Delhi has the nicest and the widest roads , a world class metro system, now also a world class airport ( T3 terminal ) and all the facilities. What we witness during rains nowadays, many Indian cities have been witnessing that since long.. without any sort of ongoing construction work. See that and aim the right targets.

Yes, due to this Commonwealth mess, things are mega chaotic presently. But this will soon change. Amen. Let the CWG get over. Let those foreign babas and babes come, click pics of "poor Indians" for sharing with their friends back home and let them go back peacefully. But after that Mr Kalmadi (and others) , .. clean my city of the mess you have created. You owe it one.

// Upcoming post : Why we shouldnt support M F Hussain and forget about the old rat.

Was gonna publish that actually but somehow , felt this one was more important. Hoping to create atleast a minuscule change in thinking.

Cheers...

Don't know if they should be boycotted or not, not yet given it a thought. But I'd like to know of a place where things are carried on with utmost good faith and honesty.

Sweta said...

Hope the concerned people are able to see this too....

We all clean our house and don't bother to clean the surrounding... Happy that you love your city :)

Mayank said...

Have been a reader of WTF since long .. really love your writing style Mayank :) . You have a sense of comic timing + high level of understandin of sarcasm. Awesome ... !!!

Fuck Yeah, Delhi! said...

Hell, yes! Everyone in Delhi needs a dose of this. Instead of making the CWG a part of the "curriculum" for school-kids, they should just focus on teaching them about civic sense.

Fuck Yeah, Delhi! said...

Having said that, I have to disagree that it has nothing to do with its people... The people of Delhi are as much at fault for the condition of the city.

You're a born Delhiite, I'm guessing. As someone who's here due to circumstances beyond my control, I've found this an extremely inhospitable place for people to live in.

And I'm not talking about the weather.

@FYD

Thanks for visiting...

Ofcourse, Delhi's inhabitants r big screwups n dont have a clue about keeping their home clean.. I have mentioned that in my post.

About the hospitality of the place... No comments. One always feels out of place outside their home city/state....

@Mayank
Not true... having lived/stayed in several cities across the country, I've found that Delhiites are the least helpful when it comes to helping outsiders, or people in trouble.

Something as simple as getting directions: the attitudes of people in Faridabad and Noida are vastly different from those in Delhi... They're much more willing to help. And they're just across the border.

Mayank said...

@FYD .. Wont contest on behavior of Delhiites . Most arent helpful yes. But theres a simple fact.. Majority of the people / workforce in Delhi are people from outside .. be it neighbourin states or far off places. Delhi is basically a melting pot. I dont think blaming the behavior of these people on the city is logical enough.
