Antilla d monstrocity

The one building that made me so-so very very angry was that Ambani building, made to cater to the whims of 4 persons. What do they get out of living that way? some would say he has earned the ‘right’ to live that way…on what account? When there are many in this country without basic necessities like water access to water, education, electricity–a better life. What rights do they have?

Bad enough, we live in a society that strives on stratification, that lives on difference…be it money, status, religion…we strive on it…how quickly we sell our lives and values…

there is no concept of quality of life here…unless of course, u have the money…if u dont, u deserve to crawl it out, u deserve to not rest, u r entitled to nothing…

if someone can squeeze u, they will…if they can metaphorically show that their dick is bigger, they will…

nobody is equal here…of course, we don’t want that…what are we goin to do when the farmer has dreams?? oh no no…lets find a way to put him into debt, develop an IT sector with no food in our bellies and nuclear bombs on the side…lets dig up our forests n give away what doesn’t belong to any of us…we have a good good plan…

the not-so-well-off are taught to believe in karma-that what is happenin to them is meant to be and maybe in another life, they may get all that they want…so why fight now??

we don’t want to be happy…we don’t want to enjoy the sunset…we only want money…
