Donald J Trump – Real life ” Agent of Chaos “

ON 9th November 2016, world was not same anymore … It saw change of power from OBAMA to TRUMP . Yes, Donald J trump which was not even a distant possibility for WHITE HOUSE. Nowhere close to the power seat as per expert’s.

images-1

A business tycoon, who was heavily criticized, even by his own party men for controversial statements. During Election campaign, Mr. Trump openly made remarks which people fear to even express in private.. Statements which clearly showed hatred towards Mexicans, Muslims and even women in large. .

Some political commentators called it era of dark politics after reviewing the debates held b/w presidential candidates.  And even announced that it will turn into an Era of Nazism if Republican candidate came to   power.

yoda-trump-hate.jpg

But, whatever happened in last 2 years of campaigning, I believe citizens of most powerful nation of the world has already chosen their side way back in 2008.

Remember “ The Dark Knight “ ,  released in 2008 ,where the superhero  “Batman “ who was trying to save the city get overshadowed in every aspect by the villain “ JOKER “ {For which Ledger  won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor }  . imagesA negative character which was largely applauded by Americans not only for screen performance but for its dialogue and the thought process behind it . After 8 years, when you compare ideology behind that Character with TRUMP statements, you will find a similar pattern.  Pattern which defines undesired needs of voters, which they can’t accept openly but acknowledge and appreciated privately and which made them to VOTE FOR TRUMP.

 

And the basis for drawing such conclusion was statements made during debates, few of them were:

  • I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.
  • I am smart for not paying taxes ..It’s not my fault but of the system .
  • It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming!
  • My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure; it’s not your fault.
  • I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.
  • On his top spot: I could ‘shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters’
  • I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding

 

And now compare them with what “ The JOKER “ said , 8 years ago :

  • Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos.
  • You know what I’ve noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all “part of the plan”. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!
  • “Smile, because it confuses people. Smile, because it’s easier than explaining what is killing you inside.” 
  • As you know, madness is like gravity…all it takes is a little push.

And the epic one

  •  They need you right now, but when they don’t, they’ll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it’s a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. I’ll show you. When the chips are down, these… these civilized people, they’ll eat each other. See, I’m not a monster. I’m just ahead of the curve.

                                      Yes , Donald J trump was just ahead of the curve

  • Probably what TRUMP must have told to Obama  & Hillary while filling the nomination papers as a President candidate  🙂

“Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just… *do* things.” 

download (2).jpgTrump entire campaign was focused on winning the election and enjoying the chase to prove Potus and Hillary wrong about what the nation really wants and final he has achieved it , he proved them wrong . But Fortunately, he doesn’t know what to do anymore ….

That’s actually is good and positive for world ,as he finally going to listen to people .Real life Bureaucrats and scholars and act accordingly for betterment of all rather than forcing all into World War IV of dark ages .

Without any glazing ball to predict future, We can only hope for him to really deliver on his promise to “Make America Great Again.” . Besides keeping the world a peaceful place for others to live in harmony too.

In the End , I just want to say ————–

“Why are you so Serious ?…………………… Hope this bring some smile to your face “ 🙂

 

And it’s no more a legal tender.

The moment when entire nation felt the earthquake tremors at once. It was 8 PM on 8th Nov 2016, when PM decide to be the epicenter of this Man made earthquake “ #Demonetisation .

Probably this Dialogue from Heath Ledger from “The Dark Knight “suits the situation:

 “Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair!

It took a while for people to understand, how this announcement has pulleddemonetisation the rug under their feet. While Deciding the fate of 500 /1000 Currency note ,
Modi ji has modified the destiny of 1.3 billion citizens  for good or for bad.  Suddenly Crisis in Samajwadi party , Pak actor in Bollywood , Firing incident at Border , Fleeing of Vijay Mallya and even India cricket series with England became last page topics .

16 days has passed since then and world is still wondering what will be the real impact of this decision going to be. Although Majority agrees that idea is bang on and it can meet the purpose, which was to eradicate black money and remove fake currency from the market. But, mode of implementation remains questionable. The way it created panic for common people and made them stand in queue for their own money shows lack of planning and overestimating capacity of Indian banking system.

May be metro cities are coming back on tracks pretty soon , but Real scenario can be observed in far flung areas where penetration of financial institution is minimal and downloadpeople are struggling to deposit /withdraw their own money.
With daily new notification coming up from Central Authorities, there is a chaos even among Bankers and Govt .officials that are responsible for implementation.  It takes almost 3-4 days for the communication to pass on to the lowest level.  Overall, the waiting time is increasing and the patience is gradually running low.

As our Honorable PM has said, he needs 50 of support days to show benefits of this idea. We know, Global media is closely observing this event and no matters what happen, it’s going down in history as biggest gamble ever played.

We really pray, the benefits starts showing soon and this Mahabharat has a happy ending. Else, it will take years for economy to recover and may result in millions lose their livelihood and life. In the process, NDA may even lose their credentials,  impacting  results of key elections in upcoming years  .or establish Mr. Modi  , as the magician which can turn any issue  into political gold .

On a lighter note ,  Shri Shri Rishi Kapoor has already predicted the Tsunami and warned the world way back in 1980 . You don’t believe me ??? Then listen to this on :

Strengthen the Roots – Kids development at early stage !

Me and my  kid was walking across road , coming back to home when suddenly he pointed towards a tree and started talking :  


That tree is so so big , dad ”  while making gestures .

 

download (1).jpg

Yes , Kid ” 
See , how high its branches has gone , almost 50 feet tall ” .. ” If planted in our backyard, it would have covered our entire house with it’s shade ” ” It seems to be super strong , Just like WWE Superstar KHALI  .  It can easily  force of at least 100 elephants like BAHUBALI ” 
Yes , my son yes . You are completely right   ” 
Few days after —-
It’s impossible … DAD , its impossible ” ..
” What happened ” 
Just come with me  , while coming back from school I saw a unbelievable thing ” 
” Ok , Ok … Let’s go “ 
images.jpg
See , this is I was talking about … This tree has fallen HEAD-ON with his entire roots “” Can’t understand , How such a giant structure fallen overnight  . ” Although there was a small hurricane last evening  , but  even much smaller saplings in our backyard survived them easily ” 
Let’s see !!And we curisoly started looking around the fallen giant  ... ” If you carefully observe the roots , they are all dry and thin .” ” This shows , although the tree grew in age , but due to lack of nourishment at the roots may be  during early years , it’s base  never grew to being capable to support the growth  ” . ” And with growing years, branches keep on spreading out  but there was never enough internal strength to support it. Probably , this caused the fall of this tree. ” 
Now I understand DAD , why we take extra care of saplings and keep an eye till it set its roots strongly to grow organically . Those pest control treatment, extra fertilizer,  adding good worms is all for early years care which rips fruit forever ” .

 


This stands TRUE for us too , what we ignore at early stage comes back to haunt further in life and unfortunately there is no way to close this gap after certain years .
Being a father , I take keen interest and participate in ensuring my kids  meal plan contains all essential nutrients  .download.jpg I also request my fellow readers to ensure the same & avoid feeding them even bytes of  junk food . Because excuse like  ” Hey , they are strong and they can digest everything ” or ” It’s Ok , if he eats sometimes  ” is only going to putting toll on his body organs and impact the growth  .
Check with your doctor on what will work best for your kid and prepare food intakes accordingly .  We know all the neighbor ” Grand Ma’s ”  bombard  us with  plethora of food ideas but a double crosscheck will only going to help before making them part of kid’s meal .
So wake up and listen what your child’s health is saying about his diet  and ensure they became  fit and fine internally to survive any thunderstorm of life .

Perception – a short story

Standing at the corner of the street, I was waiting for a cab to pick me up at 8 in  the morning. As the app reflected waiting time of 15 min , I started looking around to see if anything new was happening in my neighborhood ; which gave a  look of  framed picture since 50’s. Everything occurred in a fixed mechanical motion, as in someone starting the machines at 5 am in morning and let them do their pre – engineered program without any deviation.

While looking around , I saw a GENTLEMEN ( Yes , real one J ) coming towards me wearing a jogging suit with earplugs tugged ON and a sophisticating looking fitness band on wrist . The bright looking shoes and a winner smile reflected it was less than a week since he started his fitness regime..

Decking up in the initial days, craving their paths differently to grab attention wrt getting praised for their health consciousness. Just like fresher’s in first year of college can be spotted from 500 mts based on their shyness, curiosity and enthusiasm, all emotions mixed in one  . This was what instantly came to my mind on getting his first glance!

11954225561444388723johnny_automatic_jogging_boy.svg.hi.pngNo.. No.. No … the story is not about my perception of this health conscious GENTLEMEN ( You will know at end of story , why I am emphasizing on this adjective ) .. Although , I  am guilty of forming  one and making my readers draw a vivid image of this character , but as lawyers say in courtroom “ Statement withdraw “ 🙂  ..

I curiously watched his pace of jogging and as he was crossing the junction, he stopped. I thought maybe he rejoiced , on me staring at him & my mind already started making excuses and throwing out and same time filtering probably reasons to justify my staring.

But, the men turned around towards the other side of road and he took few steps and stopped near a mid-sized sedan. There another man with fairer color wearing loose T- shirt and half pants was cleaning dirt from a car.

In Delhi and probably in most of the metro cities, Cars are parked roadside due to scarcity of space and they gather dust overnight in bulk . So many have found an opportunity to clean up these cars in the morning and charge anywhere between INR 500 -1500 / month depending on size of car and locality .  For working people ,  it saves time in the morning and some take this as an opportunity to earn few bucks during morning shift of probably 5 am – 8 am .

12-WshCr.gif

Now our GENTLEMEN started talking to this fairer guy –

Hey, you are really an expert in your trade. When I went for jogging 1 hour before this car was looking like an abandoned piece of junk covered with dirt and birds shit . And now its shinning as owner has just brought it from garage  .  Grt Job …

Thanks Sir – Other guy responded without looking back to him .

You see , I have  hired and fired 4-5 guys in last 2 months because  no one was dedicated and as efficient as you are. But you look pretty sincere, So I want to hire you for the job .

But sir  ….

No , listen to me .. I have a Alto 800 and a pulsar .. I used to give 300 bugs for cleaning of both vehicles.

But sir , I ..

Ok , Ok .. I will start with 300 with you and if I found you sincere I would increase it to 350 from next month.

It’s not possible for me …

Ok , I understand you are educated and doing such shitty jobs for extra money .. But it’s ok with me , I am a Sr. Manager in MNC and 4-5 of my sub-ordinates leave nearby  …  I will recommend you to them and can help you earn easily 2-3 K per month .. Don’t worry I am not going to ask for referral commission.I am a kind hearted person.

You have to listen to me sir ..

Ohh .. You are still in doubt???   That’s the problem with you guys.. Someone shows sympathy and you try to extract more money.. But remember, I am not going to pay more than INR 350 and if you bargain further, I will inform your current customers too how rude you are ..  I am very popular in this society.

While listening to all this conversion , I was wandering who this “ Mr. POPULAR “ is  ??  I never saw him in 4 years  .. At same time , I got curious to listen as to what other guy was trying to say … and decided to move and intervene in their conversation .. and suddenly

“ FOR GOD SAKE .. LISTEN TO ME FIRST , YOU ****** “ ..

the other guy finally had enough .. I stopped..  Climax has started …

He continued in loud voice looking towards our GENTLEMEN – “  I AM TRYING to say something for last 15 minutes and you don’t even bother to hear me  …  I am not a cleaner , this car is Mine … I am Sr. VP in Aboutme.com ,an Online MNC and have recently shifted to this society  ..  I personally take care of my car because cleaning helps in sketching muscles which is a good workout in morning. Just because for what I am wearing or what I am doing right now , you formed opinion that I am going to listen to you forever for some 2-3 k or whatever .

Gentlemen my advice is , don’t judge people by clothes or color else you might run someday into unavoidable trouble .  And learn to respect others not based on their income or looks but because they are human and they deserve to treated well.

Yes sir , sorry  I understand “ and our gentlemen swiftly tries to escape from the scene trying to avoid eyes which have started circling around him during this conversation .

The men continued cleaning his car and crowd dispersed and I was left with a smile and a noteworthy message to share with everyone ….

Now , you know , why I was calling him a GENTLEMEN  !!!!!!!

{ Rough English Translation } –

When there is Life , it bound to have some Dreams  

When there are Dreams , there are Destinations ( Goals )  

When there are Destinations  , then there are distances 

For those distances , there are roads 

If there are roads , they bound to have difficulties

For those difficulties , they have courage

And with this courage , comes the confidence

That no matter what happens , a true fighter always wins !!
