I am an "Indian"
As a little boy i used to ask my Grand mom about her freedom struggle experience and every time she told me the story i swear her eyes shined brighter than the sun on solstice.. She had a look of accomplishment..she had achieved something..and today i sit and wonder..what have i done for my Country?When some foreigner asks me where i am from, I proudly say " I am an Indian".. But what have i done to call myself an Indian? Yeah..I do stop my friends from littering..once in a while tech little kids to read.. but come on..that just makes me a good citizen..The country needs me..us.. We the youth have to get together and do something.. as an individual we can only make excuses(what can i do alone?) but as a group we actually do something.. Rohit told me about Indian students and youth representative to the united nations and i really liked the Idea and today i feel proud to say that, Yes! i am an active member of this group.. We all want to grow up and settle down in different countries but why not develop India instead and make people want to settle down here? we have the resources, we have the land and we have manpower..Why wait for the day when we have a literate politician in the ministry when we qualified youth can address the problems of our nation right now?? Lets do something, Lets work for a better India cause i for one want to have the same look in my eyes as my grand mom when i tell my story to my grand kids.. I SAY RUN.. Do you?? :)
We the People
India-Classified as a developing country..Developing?? but why?? why not Developed? Its been more than 50 years since our Independence..Then why is the Country still developing??Even we have big,tall and shiny buildings..we have the best medical facilities..malls..sport complex..we have everything..but then why? what could be the reason? could it be us? we the people!? well ill tell you bout a little experience that i had recently.. I was traveling by train..it was a long journey so i had ordered food..and when it comes to food, i go crazy..i ordered almost everything on the list only to realize that i cant finish it all.. I dint want to waste food.. We all would have seen those poor little kids who come and clean the train in a hope of earning some money.. so One of those kids entered my compartment..so i thought i can give away the food pack to him..I was placed in the upper birth..I called out for him..but he dint listen..so I asked the people sitting on the lower birth to call him.. and i saw something that shocked me.. literally shocked.. The lady below was about to tap him on his back and ask him to look up..when she stopped..stopped.. took a slipper and tapped him with that.. she dint want to touch him.. how sad is that? Did i just witness untouchability?? Its our mindset people.. if as a person we cant develop then how can we expect our country to develop??We have to change.. we cant sit around and blame the politicians for everything..that's the cowards way out.. we can sit and play the blame game or actually step up and do something.. the choice is ours, cause till then the country is only developing..

UN youth Rep log 01
We've had a couple of good meetings, done some solid work which i'm very proud of :-)

We have spoken to dinesh bhaiya about it, we are doing it under WAYE, so THAT is confirmed.

Next, we have got correspondence from Bremley Lyngdoh . The first Indian Youth Rep to the UN in the year 2000. Very impressive man . He has addressed world leaders and done some of the coolest things ever. I'm glad we have him in the loop.

We have also decided on the campaign name, acronym or moto . Whatever you'd like to call it. We are going with I SAY RUN . Indian Students and Youth Repesentative to the UN . Hope ya'll like it :)

oh btw... i have taken a liking to this place called madras terrace house. its a very nice cosy place where we had our last meeting.

Sadly i dont think we will be meeting this saturday. YES+ creative happening and we're all doing it ! :)

Anyway.... other than that . We have still haven't been able to catch mr.vikram doraisamy . I don't understand why they make it so painful ! :) anyway. i'm enjoying the journey !

and oh .. remind me to whack my HR guy on the head and tell him to take some nice pics so i can keep an account and a documentation of the fun we are having at saving the country :) . yes his codename is Abe . so go find him . hit him . ... its a him ;)

I'll fill you guys in later !

till then .. remember , population is our strength

jai hind !
