Skin colour does matter Baby !!!!!

Do you know that I am celebrating the success of Mr.Barack Obama..in this corner of the world, INDIA? Not that am against Mr.George Bush or nor am I a diehard fan of Obama. My celebrations are only for the reason ” I see a black person in the most powerful role in the White House”. Is’nt it really a sweet and interesting thing to see this change. Yes, I do agree that Obama is’nt elected for the only reason ” he is a black”. Agree or not..this is also one factor which made people think and drived them to vote. 

You may think..how mean is this girl..in this 21st century..this girl is still bothered about SKIN COLOUR. My reply to you is “SKIN COLOUR DOES MATTER BABY!!!!!”. People with darker skin are not bugged by some westeners or any other foreign people. They are just bugged by the people in their own community. They are bugged by their own people. The goal decided by the family members or so called “well wishers” of these ‘Color Challenged People” is nothing but to become “White”.  As if being White is the ultimate destination of a human. Arrey yaar..why don’t these so called wellwishers understand that these BLACK colour skinned people are born to be BLACK just as others are born to be WHITE or WHEATISH..whatever…. . Just imagine the mind state of person who is just bugged about his /her skin colour for which he/she is not responible…

 The condition of black skinned Indian girls is really pathetic.  How much ever the girl tries to brush aside the “Colourism” issue, it hinders her progress several times. Can anyone make people understand that Intelligence, Humanity are not based on SKIN COLOUR? 

Some quick facts about the some people who really respect BLACK (borrowed from wikipedia site 😉 ):

Black can be seen as the color of authority and seriousness.

Mysterious thing about this BLACK colour is …people like Black Dresses, Black Cars, Black Pens..whatever…but they don’t have that much respect for the BLACK skinned people. Yes agree that this is not a new issue I’m talking about. This is an age old issue. The sad part of the story is this problem is not solved yet. This problem gets solved only when people understand that BLACK is as colourless as WHITE..afterall as a Physics Student I say..BLACK and WHITE are not colours 🙂

Change has’nt come to my Country yet wrt to the Colourism. Hoping for a day in India ..where dark skinned people are not looked down because of their SKIN COLOUR…

Where has all the goodness gone Ramalinga Raju garu :(

Hi All !

It has been long time that I wrote a post in my blog. I could not resist writing a post on Satyam and its King “Ramalinga Raju garu”. Definetly January 7th 2009 is a historic day in Indian Corporates. Ramalinga Raju of Satyam computers resigned after confessing that he has done a fraud of several thousand crore rupees as a part of making the company. (see this:http://www.satyam.com/media/pr2jan09.asp).

Satyam was(is) the one of desired companies by the software professionals in India. People looked at Shri Ramalinga Raju as an inspirational personality. He developed Satyam to a considerable level by an incessant hard work of 32 years. Politicians, press and all used to feel as a privilage to rub shoulders with “Satchaym Raju”. They found every aspect of Raju marvelous, superb, inspirational.  The milestones achieved by Satyam were also remarkable(http://www.satyam.com/about/milestones.asp).

But what amazes me is the way people try to nullify all the acts of a person. Definelty Mr Raju has not done an excellent job or wonderful job by doing this scam. But how far is it genuine to say that all his acts were blunders and all the works done by him were corrupt. The most irritating thing is the blame put on 108 service of satyam. , Satyam’s foundation introduced a emergency health service through Ambulance ..generally people call it as “108” services. These services are excellent and they saved thousands of lives.  How can people simply criticise every damn service of Satyam and its founder Mr Raju.To read more read this news article http://www.hindu.com/2007/01/07/stories/2007010706090300.htm

 The employees of Satyam , even today don’t like speaking bad about Raju and still they have respect for Mr Raju. The reactions and unnecessary interpretations are made by the Politicians  or people not at all related to Satyam in any form or media which makes every opportunity it gets to increase its existence.

Where has all the goodness done by Mr Raju gone. This hostility shown by people reminds me a telugu poem

“Koorimigala dinamulalo neramulu yennadu kalaganeravu Mari aa koorimi virasambainanu neramule tochu chundu nikkamu sumathi”!!!!!!!!!!!

The meaning of this above poem is ” In the times of freindship , the mistakes of a person are not seen, but the time that friendship breaks ONLY the mistakes of that person are found”….

Definelty Raju is not a hero but he is not a terrorist or rapist. He too deserves some respect.

Cheers,
