I guess a lot has happened in this short while that I decided to take a break from posting anything in my blog. Both India and Kuwait went to elections and the results too have come out; Sri Lanka has declared that LTT has been defeated; there are unofficial and official reports out that the Tamil Tigers chief Velupillai Prabhakaran was killed in the fight and yes of course the deadly Swine flu that has been spreading all over the world.
Now what am I to say about all this? About the Indian elections – I am extremely happy to know about the election results for India. I did want the congress party to come back into power and I am so happy that the communist party had such a setback in Kerala too. Congress won 16 out of the 20 seats in Kerala and what is amazing is that, I feel that congress got most of its winning votes from the communist supporters. What a situation right? It’s amazing to know that congress won in areas where they never even dreamt of winning and those areas were the strict, decades’ old communist areas too.
Hell well it’s not because I have anything against the communist party, but the face they portrayed to the general public was really bad. The internal group fights which got really bad, the back stabbing, the degrading talks that they did against the Church, bishops etc and so on. Well the party themselves decided and sealed their fate, so they definitely can’t blame anyone else for it.
About the Sri Lanka situation – I do hope that innocent people will be safe from now on and I do hope that this small island nation will see peace and harmony. It was a shame to see so many innocents being massacred for no reason… The fight between the LTT and the government did destroy thousands of lives and make things miserable. And I guess it sure is good to get confirmed reports about the death of the rebel leader. Well God only knows what exactly happened, whether it’s the rebel leader who really died, if it was – then how he was killed and so on… Anyway now all we can do is hope for the best and think that things have gone for the best…
About the Kuwait elections – Well its sure was a pleasant surprise and change to see that a change has come about. The most astounding of it is that 4 women (that too highly educated ones) got elected into the parliament and that sure is a huge feat. Looks like change is coming over this small nation and I do hope that things are definitely changing for the better. It has to work for the better as Kuwait sure doesn’t want to go to elections so soon again and what everybody wants is stability and people who will work for their nation rather than for themselves.
About the Swine Flu – I sure don’t know what to say about this, but for one thing I was so relieved to know that it did not originate in Asia. And when some disease originates in Asia, I see the kind of hassles that go on, now that people from US and UK and all are bringing the disease into Asia and around the world, I don’t see the same reactions. But looks like newer diseases are sprouting up each day and vaccinations and medicines are not available for these. What is the world going to? I mean where is all this heading to? It is also alarming to see that the disease is spreading and that India too has announced its first case through a passenger who arrived from the US. Well that seems to be the fastest way the disease seems to be spreading and how can we stop people from travelling?
A lot seems to be happening in my life too at present which I will have to write about at another stage :) Well I know that I have to make time to update my blog which I will do when the mood strikes and on days when I don’t feel soo tired.
