Dance of Democracy – TN Elections 2016

Cheap politicals stunts will create a bad example for future young politicians. (Next Gen. Politicians). Tamil Nadu is experiencing the heights of cheap political stunts towards May 2016 elections. DMDK’s negotiation tactics,  PMK’s day dream for becoming CM of Tamil Nadu, DMK’s begging attitude for an alliance with DMDK, pathetic unnoticed BJP for no major calls for an alliance, no comments on Congress and other minor parties and finally silent and helpless AIADMK.

Aslo, we got to see few interesting happenings,

  1. PMK’s simple and effective and most needed manifesto ( but from a worse visionary -party head )
  2. Seeman’s NTK with effective and clean manifesto and principles ( not strong enough to win..but a good start if he maintains his stand of opposing Dravidian parties in future elections too)
  3. Vaiko-Thiruma’s MNK with a mix of so-called activists turned opportunists in politics (MDMK, VCK, CPI, CPM). A good decision to join together and may win hearts if they maintain this for 2 future elections at least

Few of the top blunders are as follows ( Dance of Democracy )

  1. DMK’s Namakku Naame Thittam – Heights of political stunt ( got some positive and negative vibes equally ) but a great entertainment through memes ( thanks for that )
  2.  PMK’s “Change Progress Anbumani” and related campaigns in Obama Style promotions from A leader-party head with no clarity and no individuality
  3. Congress’s belief and assurance on winning more seats in alliance with DMK
  4. BJP’s where to go situation and waiting for a last minute call from any of the parties for an alliance
  5. AIADMK’s silent and confused attitude
  6. DMDK leaders crystal clear interviews with blabbering every time and get trapped to the journalist questions ( as the way they wanted ) and for all the enjoyable memes circulated in social media portraying DMDK leader

Apart from all these blunders, the worst was the negotiation talks from all parties to Vijayakanth except AIADMK. TN ppl witnessed historical situations like, a 50+ year old party to beg DMDK for an alliance. Finally got ditched with the decision of DMDK’s standing alone in all 234 positions. But now DMK pitched in for post-election alliance with DMDK with no regrets of getting ditched recently.

More to talk about these wonders and blunders of TN elections 2016. The worst part is, people are left with No effective manifesto, No productive schemes and No sincere promises, No people-oriented principles, No inspiring leader and No hope for growth.

Good luck TN for more wonders and blunders of TN 2016 elections and also for a bright future with inspiring leaders like VK, MKS, AM, JJ.  😉 This too shall pass by. Another election will come and we hope for the best.

Wonders or blunders, Let us VOTE and decide.

ps: ”Dance of Democracy” is a title lifted from TOI’s election news page. This post is just a view of mine and no intention to portray or impose good or bad impression on any individual party. This is jusst an expression of my thoughts on day to day recent political incidents I came accross. 

Ithu Chennai Da !!!

#chennaifloods #chennairains #chennairescue #chennaimicro #verified #ChennaiRainsHelp #medicalcamp #areanames etc., etc., These are the rescue and relief tags used by most of the volunteers and good hearts towards Chennai. People stood up and getting back Chennai as normalcy.

Crores of Donors

Lakhs of Volunteers

Thousands of Camps

Tonnes of Relief materials

Hundreds of huge containers

Thousands of vehicles, vans, lorrys,  Cars

Thousands of Shelters ( Marriage halls, mosques, temples, Churchs, community halls, bungalows, houses, Complexes, Multiplex, theatres )

These made Chennai what it is now. This is new to Chennai to face such a natural disaster. Chennai had no experience to handle this situation. Chennai would have never imagined getting these much support in a short notice. But everything happened. Very proud to be in the generation and humanity. No words to express thanks to Indian and NRI donors and the love they shared.

Life is so much beautiful with these good hearted people around as.Thanks for everything. We will be back in form in few weeks.

Let’s roar … ITHU CHENNAI DA !!!

Raising Intolerance – Cheap Journalism.

I was just wondering about why there is so much fuss about the word INTOLERANCE & AAMIR. I watched the interview recently and it’s a usual interview with tactical questions from Top Journalist forum and Aamir’s views as answers. There are a lot of other things he spoke was constructive and totally ignored by the so call media and they only took the part where he stated about the intolerance ( insecurity ) and his wife’s conversation with him on the insecure feeling.

All these media hyped this to a new level and made it related to politics and portraying Aamir as anti-patriotic. This is just an act of cheap journalism and everything for TRP. HOT words from a HOT star – sells high in TRP or any other related term for other media. As a common man if I was a Muslim, I would have felt the same intolerance and alarmed about the general public and media’s perception of Terrorism related to Islam. Please, remove the religious tag from Terrorism.

It is all about the secure feeling that a nation gives to a common man. No matter what is your Foreign investment policy, no matter how the GDP grows, no matter about the stunning technology revolution, no matter on the new political policies and stands, a common man just want to feel secured wherever he lives. Even most of the Indian’s like me are feeling alarmed and insecure due to the recent activities of a nationwide religious movement and on their moral policing. This is just one example…and more to be listed.

I have a strong feeling that patriotism is getting out fashioned and unwanted in the current scenario. Let’s think Humanity, Let’s think Global. Raise your voice for truth, raise your voice for humanity. Let’s put an end to Cheap Journalism.

We @ Blossom also waiting for the results..Since 3 of our QUEST Education Center students appeared for the 12th standard exams. all the best for QEC Stuents,..!

Dropped out for a new Beginning

TamizhSelvi ( TamizhArasi )… exactly after three years we heard this name and met this lil hope of Blossom. Yes the girl with lot of thirst in education is back to us to continue the education.  Three years back I wrote an article “Quest Ends In Blossom” about this girl. After few months of tat she was forced to discontinue ( she attained puberty , the so called turning point in a girls life ) by her aunty and uncle. Then she never turned up….we tried to convenience her aunt but nothing went positive.  She continued to work in the FireWorks office as usual. Our center head always said tat..she is still so interested in learning…but her aunt and uncle not allowing.

Just few weeks back, other two school dropout girls of the same village “S.Sornavalli” & “K.Angala Easwari” turned to our center with their parents. They wanted their kid to continue the studies and the seeked our help to make it happen. So we convinced the girls to start learning in our center from the basics.  Now both the girls are very regular to classes and they are grasping the subjects very fast &  more than we expected. Now both the girls accepted to join school in the next academic year.

The pity things are …the reason for “Agala Easwari” to drop put from school was, she was told tat she is not reading well and she was constantly discouraged in one or other way. So she decided to not to go to school. The reason for “Sornavalli” to drop out from school was, she was afraid of English. She scored decent marks in all the other subjects except in English. So she decided not to go to school when she was in 7th std., Both the girls  parents forced them lil bit to go to school and continue education… but not much.So these girls are working in the fireworks office and ears 1800/- INR per month.

Students from Khansapuram, Sivakasi

New Hopes of Blossom's QUEST

Thanks to TN govt’s policy of no fails till 9th standard. We planned to put “Angala Easwari” in 8th standard and “Sornavalli” in 9th standard. Fortunately at this time , TamizhSelvi turned up one day along with her aunty to give us a surprise. Her aunty wanted TamizhSelvi to start learning again. We are very happy to take her back and promised her aunt that we will make her join school again. ( the girl who was never been to school after her 1st standard ). The good news is she is learning very fast now and as accepted earlier the local school HM accepted to give her a certificate tat she completed 5th standard in his school. Since she doesn’t have a birth certificate or other birth proofs, we decided to reduce her age lil bit and make her join in 6th standard or 7th standard next year.

The only challenge will be convincing her aunt and uncle for sending her to school, since she earns 1500 to 1800 INR per month. If we can pay tat amount to her guardians, we can easily get permission to put her in school. We are just working out for few volunteers to support for this cause.  The next big challenge is to find few mentors to guide and encourage these girls to move on further. With great positive notes Blossom will meet the challenges and make things happen.

Really very happy to see three school drop out girls back to QUEST centers and now they got the confidence of joining back to school. We never wanted to call this as success….bcos lot to go. When they finish the 10th standard…we can say tat we have started our way to success. We at Blossom will take it as a challenge and will make it happen with the help of lot of positive souls around us. I wish , let QUEST be the right place to quench these girls quest on education ( Quality Education ).

Thanks a ton to Mr.Nagarajan ( Center Head) for his quest in educating these  kids in the village. Without him nothing would have been possible. Hats off to his hard work along with Kavitha Nagarajan to bring up these kids. Happy to take this responsibility with lots of happiness. We promise to do our best to brighten the lives of these kids in the village and make it a model village.

note:- Blossom is a Social welfare Org., and QUEST is one of the project handled by Blossom. QUEST mainly works on the Quality Education for rural children. QEC – Quest Education Centers are the place where village students were given supplementary education at no cost.

  We need Volunteers to mentor these three girls and other few students in our center. You can make it through online. Interested ppl can contact me @ “sathishsp@gmail.com” or through your comments in this post.

Preserving Childhood Happiness…!

Just in the completion stages  of the long time pending dream project. Its all about CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE (CSA). When it comes to social initiative (  duty ) I (We through Blossom) always thought of doing something on Education and Child Abuse ( sexual , verbal, physical ). Working on Education is the easiest one when compared to creating awareness on CSA. I always found it hard to implement and plan for this project.

It just got postponed for several reasons..some times due to lack of ppl, lack of awareness on how and where to start, most times on what to start etc., But Last year by this time….sort of managed to get into it and got a starting point about where to start and what to deal about. Since already few NGO’s are concentrating on the general CSA, we thought of dealing with the modern worlds CSA through Online (internet) and other communication devices. With the help of three of my friends, last year we managed to give a start. And due to some reasons..the works were stopped for several months. Atlast now we are reworking on this …and almost done. This time we will never miss it…and the awareness website will be launched in a day or two.

Creating Awareness on Child Sexual Abuse

Surely this time we will make it big and will create awareness in as many as ppl. And we will be a part in saving the children’s precious childhood memories…! Will update you soon on this…! Really excited to see the website in action. Just watch out for this space “watchyourkids.org“. Will be updated in a day or two.

ps: Blossom is a NGO, working towards the welfare of the society. Blossom mainly involved in Rural Education. Watch Your Kids is yet another initiative of Blossom, towards creating awareness on Child Sexual Abuse through Internet.
