Today isn’t an excellent day to blog about, but a day that gives me some hope because I have discovered this piece of music & nostalgia once more:
Election results have shown us that the party which forms the current Government will continue to remain on the Government side of things. Which to me tells me that we need a reassessment of the Opposition and a lot more grassroots campaigns than we currently have. If AOC can do it, we can. And we should. Maybe it’s time to think about that as a path I legitimately want to take. Or to think about models of viable political participation which can make a real difference to the people around me – at the very least.
I was at a relative’s house and got fairly bashed by my mother (who enjoyed the day tremendously). What I enjoyed though was traveling with her on the metro and managing to reach from one end of Bangalore to another end of the city (aka my house) in about an hour and 30 minutes. Which is fantastic.
We shall talk of more pleasant days to come in the future, I hope. I’m also avoiding or trying to avoid partisan media and twitter for a while. Let’s see how that pans out for me.
