Just some food for thought – Amar priyo Kolkata
If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, by that definition we are all insane.
Well I have been a dweller of M/s Hindustan Motors limited and all my generations before me had worked there for their wage, which has now been shut down and I see no outrage from the media nor from any person I know, yet we tend to get offended on what we are doing on valentine’s day or what a journalist said.
Any how CPM has been always blamed for slow industrialization and an even slower pace in the core sectors.
Well lets see a simple fact during CPM, Hindustan Motors was still running, Dunlop pulled in a few old employees and even IT came into Kolkata. And don’t even get me started on TATA’s Nano, Infosys and the PCS debacle.
Since 2011 I saw a mass of people who wanted industrialization in West Bengal support a leader who had done nothing but to close all the upcoming industries and kill the existing ones. Come to think of it CPM lost only because they brought in industry to West Bengal. Now that’s interesting.
Well may be its just me but I think we need CPM back and we are afraid of our own government.
Now hear me out what if CPM losing these 4 years was a part of CPM’s end-game? They lost and the industries collapsed. May be the industries would have even if CPM won but, they chose to make the opposition win this time, so that their reputation remains untarnished, well what was left of it anyway.
May be we really have no opposition in our West Bengal and its just good business between an old lady and an old man while the media plays the circus and we the common people keep giving them taxes and bribes.
A perpetual good-cop bad-cop succession plan, where we all suffer unless we rise up and demand from the government machinery what we need and we as common people take the lead, instead of some petty illiterate imbeciles.
The people shouldn’t be afraid of their governments, the governments should be afraid of their people.
Well I can’t help but write this –
The Fifth of November
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.
But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one,
I’ll take two,
The better for me,
And the worse for you.
A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down,
And a jolly good fire to burn him.
Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!
