Despite all the questions you've asked, All the jokes they've cracked. All the rights they demanded, You still voted from them. Despite all the questions left, unanswered. All the words with it's true meanings, covered up and uncorrected. All the words that are buried, left to be never remembered. Yet, people rolled the night in a paper, and smoked it in a pipe. In memory of kidnapped children. Your kidnapped children, Our abducted children. Justice is requested, And all you told them was to go back to bed. How? Just how would they sleep?! When you hurt their softest feelings of love and trust, really deep?! Tomorrow would be better, Let's burn our light of hope and fill our thirst as we suffer. Youth jobless, graduates homeless. Yet, the orphans are left hopeless. In an independent state with democratic government. As if that wasn't enough, You still voted for them.
Just me pooling out my thoughts and feelings on Africa's government. We're built with Rich history, and blessed with human, material and natural resources. I still wonder why we're trying to limp when other continents are flying.
The day before yesterday, a few members of "XXX" party, Who last came in the year 2016 to our region, Came again, for the same cause - "vote campaign"
"How many voters in this house?", asked one among them To my mother - for which she said, "3". (I could hear a 17 year old champ mourning, And yes - it was me )
"Vote for our party", he said and gave rupees 1500, '500' for each vote."Our party has very good plans for women", He said. Probably he would have said "We have good plans for men", if it was my dad standing in my mother's pos.
The next day - yet another party named "YYY", Who haven't won the state assembly election since 2006, Came to our region, for the same cause. The same "500 rupees per vote", with the same policies.
I said to my mother, "whom will you vote for ?". She remained silent and said "whomsoever comes, they are going to exploit." I said yes to myself...
One who votes for the money he/she received, People call you a "Loyal" person.
One who votes after proper reasoning and analysis, Irrespective of the act from the other side, People call you a "Rational" person.
P.S : All these thoughts wandered around me, when I was asked to write a slogan on "Voting rights" in my examination. And all I wrote was - "Cast your vote- Not out of influence" . Thanks for reading till the end ❤️ - G RAHUL.
revathychandrasekharInfluence illama..inga yarum vote podradhila pa.. Endha oru chinna vishayathalayum influence irukum..Especially in voting the level of influence is in much larger scale../.. "PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN SWORD" ah marantiyae pa..
rahul_govindan@revathychandrasekhar Yeah.. and I even got influenced in many small things- for instance people around me started fighting for Thala vs Thalapathy which made the entire world of cinema shrink into "Thala and Thalapathy" (later came out of it ) and andha Proverb - Puni mam ku real story venum(historical) and I thought of writing me as en example (cringe ah irundhaalum adhaan unmai) but later wrote letter when my mind gave a warning ⚠️
standbyme@rahul_govindhan It's nice that you penned it honestly.I had a prior understanding about how elections at TN is held,unfortunately it matched well.
rahul_govindan@standbyme Truth seems to be bitter and again, not all souls are of such kind, Bec there are many good hearts(special mention in TN) and saddest part is (as I mentioned in the post) people are influenced and many get deceived by the mere "500 rupees".. Not juz in TN, but in many other states people act irrationally in someway or the other. ⚠️
revathychandrasekhar@rahul_govindan English mam will be happy to hear that you have given her a pen name "Puni mam"..Even I too wrote letter..Cos same Puni mam gnabagam vandhanga..
I conclude that ballots should be always up to the people to decide how they display show or not show, whereas with #wethepeople that grandpa use of our power for them in the first place so they cannot/shall not say that if I sold you choose willingly to share then sure my vote/Ballot(but you’re always supposed to only ever #vote through a #ballot , if you’re #notvoting through a ballot and you’re #voting through a pole then you’re not voting at all) actually gets counted known and no one can change it behind closed doors because I made it public; are those places that want to hide and basically #haveyousign an #NDA then they will have something to hide and they want to control you. +plus, that just sore how willing they are to take the shorter/easier route and times when they are not supposed to and that’s all the time,As if you go to the article you can see that the even the governors in the states and those that the leaders even say the same way so these words still apply to them as well
