'Should the reigns of the country be handed over to the youth?' I look at it again. This is Zee News and Dainik Bhasker's Opinion Poll Question of the Day. I want to come back to media polls later. Right now, I'm like - do they really have nothing to do or say? Is this a question at all? Are we going to become a country which has opinions and discussions on lines which pop up in some deadline-oppressed executive's head?
Do they mean should the young form the government of the country? How young? Why just young? Why not qualified and capable and committed? Why don't young people stand for election, get elected and be part of the government - this IS a democracy, after all - nothing is just handed over in a democracy. Now, how this democracy runs and the seamier side of it - that's another discussion.
Or do they mean there should be a retirement age? OK that's a better question.

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘penmark’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
Ray
