Should we really stand up for the National Anthem ???

 YES. We should. Why ? Because we must show some RESPECT for our country.  For what it has done over the years, what it has achieved and how it has helped us. Nobody out here is actually scared of the law. So there is no fear factor. Some countries instill so much of fear in their citizens that debates like these never see the light of the day (One plus point India has. Freedom). Three cheers to democracy !!

 You may crib about a hell of a lot of stuff. But let's not forget one thing : India has a population of 1.324 billion as of 2016 (it is safe to assume that it has been growing ever since). Handling that many people, providing facilities to them and most importantly making sure everyone is happy is NOT an easy task. 

More kids + more school seats =  lack of jobs.     Also
More vehicles per family = more traffic + more accidents + more pollution = less healthy India

Count the number of problems you encounter everyday and multiply it by 12. That's probably how many of them keep knocking on the government's doors every 2 days. So I guess showing a little respect for the people working behind the scenes by standing for 2 minutes doesn't really hurt that much.

 If there is a serious physical inability to get up, putting a hand on your heart will also do. No one's going to send you to jail for that. After all that's what foreigners do (since we "sometimes" look down upon our country while looking upto to others. Every argument comes with a standard ".....bahar ke desho mein aisa nhi hota....") Some even do both (stand an hand on the heart).

I say forget Patriotism, think about respecting your country.....and if you think this is being "forced' on you, or you're feeling trapped, then tell me 3 ways in which YOU are respecting your country in you daily life.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest! I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story. But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
