Break open all the shackles....be free...be seamless...be one with the One...be Boundaryless..!!

You are me....I am You....We are the Universe...We are the trees, the insects, the animals.....We are Our Enemies...We are Our Hatred....We are the Love...Love thyself....You will love the Universe....Hate yourself....and you will discern that you are the most hated..!!

Saidabad to Banjara Hills in an auto rickshaw...!!

 Vrooomm.....started off the rickshaw from Saidabad...our destination was the City Centre at Banjara Hills...the journey was fascinating and distraught at once....fascinating because every time the wheels cycled...i contained an extra dose of excitement of going to a "Mall"...and it was distraught because the real Hyderabad....in fact the real under belly of India...came to light....on the roads (if the paved ways can reasonably be bestowed with this description)....innumerable petty shops...badly disorganized...with chicken and mutton freely exhibited....for all the flies...mosquitoes, carbon monoxide molecules, methane molecules...and several other "rightful partners of the carcasses" to relish the newly implemented sense of "socialism"... (same as the free spirit of India presently is exhibited to th world....with tainted underbelly and missing conscience...)...the people too...had their share in the "socialistic spirit" which was forwarded by the shopkeepers.....to behold the glorious sight of the wonderful consummation of the essence of the Constitution of India...India is sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic, republic....our rickshaw hurtled through the various scooters, mopeds, and scooties...which had, at the minimum, 5 people on each vehicle...commuting very comfortably indeed.....the traffic signals were clearly adhered to....in fact the responsible citizens went one step further....by being very sensitive to the yellow light and missing out on the green...to keep up with the 'fast pace'....then....the traffic policeman....was found to be reduced to a clown... flourishing his hands in the air...to entertain the tensed people commuting through the tensed roads in the tensed traffic.....
at last....after a fairly long travel....which was a result of the driver's deliberation of increasing the time taken to reach the Centre...in order that he earns some extra bucks....we stood behind the massive Mall...flashing Globus, Maxx, Levi's, Crossword, Spykar, Reymonds....blah blah blah....as if to curtain off the disdain of all the people on the roads...witnessed during the journey....in the Mall....were the elite...with neatly pressed clothes...groomed face..and all other appendices.....the malls rake in huge amount of money....from the top of the Indian pyramid...and the media proudly announces that India is shining...!!! 
lets not forget....that without the bottom of the pyramid...the top ceases to exist...without the rickshaw...and its driver...and the people who facilitated this journey...the City Centre would suffer a loss of Rs. 1000.....and this is just one drop in the ocean....and ocean exists because there is hard ground supporting it....
