  2. If we do not believe it a possibility we lose the chance of making it a reality, don't we!

    It's going to take time, but with perseverance a young voting populace, and people who BELIEVE [remember Mariah Carey?? :)] it will come to be!!!

  3. Nice to see this post

    Had just been to the Flag hoisting in our society park...We had a painting competition for children also...

    Most of them painted Indian National Flag :)



    "A nation without fear, poverty, disease and discrimination! A possibility or a reality?"

    Reality!? -- what do you mean, Rak...

    Neither does it seem a possibility ===

    Atleast to the 'realistic' me..

    A dream -- well, possibly! :)

    Although the News about Sri Ram Sena in Mangalore yesterday made me really wonder.

  11. as promised..i'm back :)
    can i say 'neither' although thats not one of the offered options. I'm so tired of all the shit happening around us that screaming/active/passive participation doesn't seem to help. I've tried all of the above and failed. Miserably. As we celebrated our 60th republic day, MNS went on a rampage yet again. Is it safe to say, I Don't Care??

  12. I'd say, its still a dream and forever will be. Pardon me for my being pessimistic. But, i've lost hope. Incase, it happens, then people can laugh at me, i'd gladly accept the mockery :)

    I wonder

    Good to see you! I echo your thoughts very much! Aren't we all too tired of things happening around us?
    The question is can we usher in a change? Do we have it in us? Can be allowed to do it?

    Cheers

  22. Only a child can have such an optimistic smile holding our Indian Flag.

    Sadly! as of now impossible for us adults. I think so.
