Distant Dream

There is such a wide gap between the demand and supply of basic amenities like medical services... housing... good schools.... that getting into any of them, doesn't seem to be possible.. atleast not on pure merit...

So even in places where you thought there was no possible corruption (and by that, i don't necessarily mean money)... it takes, what is called सिफरिश i.e. Recommendation...
What is even more amazing is that most of these places state it very blatantly, that you are not welcome, even if you are eligible...

When all of us, today's generation, discuss corruption, and talk about wanting a clean society, free of having to bribe anyone, we tend to forget... that discussing such issues from the comfort of our homes/offices is rather convenient...

But when recommendation (which is just a more sophisticated form of corruption) is requested for, even for basic admissions... I wonder how we can plug such things from our society...

And if a corruption free society would just remain a dream !!!

That Voice..

Can you hear that sound...
Ya.. that one... the one that never seems to stop...

Some call it the voice in the head.. I call it the chatterbox..

Because no matter what is happening, it just doesn't go quiet...
It just goes on and on and on...

But have you ever paid attention to what it says...

It sometimes tells you what you don't wish to hear.. the truth !!!
