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.

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