India Today : Emotions Exploited - Inspired by my country!!

We are all human and emotional.But the emotions in youth are like milk on the stove while those of others are like water on the stove.And here are a few examples of how exactly our emotions are being exploited.We all know them ,but yet we fall  prey to them due to lack of control on our emotions.

If all they need is a 10 seconds Advertisement in between two overs of a cricket match, to buy/exploit your emotions ,no matter how strong you financially are and how educated your are how would it even count?


The day i started following cricket was when Kapil Dev was a role model for millions.The then cricket board of India din't have thousands of crores bank balances.Today playing for team India is a million dollar business.They are neither bothered of your exam schedule nor how busy you are with your work.They don't give a damn about us.The fewer the number of overs the easier it is for them to keep us glued to the TV.While the richest of the rich compete for the BCCI presidents chair ,all they care about is the availability of the stadiums and the fitness of the players who make close to a million or even more every series.Let us all develop some self restraint once again and watch a game as a game and let it not impact our studies or work.


The more controversial they can make it the more TRP ratings they have and that is the bread and butter for the hundreds of channels we have today.All they need is the easiest way to get to tickle your emotions.How many elders/oldies today spend the same amount of time they wait/watch the serials to teach their children about our culture or stories from our puranas .We do not have the control on the crime watch programs etc they telecast late nights.But we do have the control on the remote and there are channels which are informative and educative.Develop some self restraint and take control of your emotions!!

How often have you seen news  about Bala Murali Krishnas  concert on the main page?.May be on one corner of the local edition with a black and white photo.While the pictures  of a up coming actresses come in different colors/poses.

How to qualify for the main page?

You should hold a PHD from the university of crime by passing the course - "Quickest path to become a prime minister from prison".At-least a few murders or scams or atleast you should have partied with a underworld don.They can create  the required hype by boiling your emotions out of a celebrities personal/family matters right on the the main page.Why should we care for that junk?.We can all spend that time reading about inspirational personalities like our freedom fighters or some useful books that might help advance our careers/studies.

Film Stars

We follow them more than their shadows right from the first clap/shot of their movie.We create the required hype even before the audio release and we decorate the theatre as if its our sisters wedding.We bunk our classes and fight for the tickets to watch the premier.We dont care even if we die in the process.While they all live happily in their palaces ,we argue/fight for them/their competitors like street rowdies.And all they(heroes,directors etc) do is exploit every possible emotion of ours in those three hours and all they really care is the 50 Rs we pay towards the ticket.

Do they come guide us when we are jobless or did they come support us when we were facing the toughest times of our lives?Develop a clarity of thought and be sure of what and why your are doing it.Be inspired by your parents who gave you this life and be a fan of your teachers who made it a meaningful one.

What is Love?

Love is not just a sweet feeling which at its peak of emotion can make you carry an acid bottle nor is a insecure feeling which will ask you to ignore your parents.Always remember that your first and unselfish love is that of your mother and the love of your wife that will stand behind you even when this world stands against you.

Which country and its culture would have survived the loot by the barbarian mughals and the pirates of the west.."The English" that came after.They have destroyed our temples and looted not only our jewels but all that spiritual treasure which they have exploited and personalized for their selfish deeds.Their divide and rule could not tear apart our great nation or its emotions.

But now we are facing one of our own - like the vultures/jackals that wait for the left overs our politicians completely depend on our left over emotions at first for the votes.And then they exploit them completely while they switch from a scam to another and try to divide and conquer.If Mahatma Gandhi was alive today he would have given up non violence and slapped those politicians misusing the word fasting/satya graham/nirahara-diksha for their political/personal mileage.

Don't let anyone/anything exploit our emotions anymore.Only we know what we are capable of.Let us realize that fact , look in to our-self , set our goals and get inspired and keep inspiring .Our nation needs us more than ever before , so all we need is some self restraint and clarity of thought!!

All the very best for the bright future awaiting!!

Jai Hind,
