Hell With Globalization!
by Srinivasan MK Bookmark and Share
 
A couple of my friends and I get involved in political discussions daily to ease out our stomach a little before we proceed to our seats.

Today, after an initial vacillation on various topics we zeroed in on cricketers and their brand value in terms of money out of his endorsements. After I said they get about Rupees Hundred Crores (Yes you got me right! If you are still thinking in lakhs, I pity you), one of my colleagues, was almost up in arms.

He went on and made the following statement – It is completely wrong to bundle up and give all the money to one person when there are lakhs of people who are not able to get even one decent meal a day.

Another colleague said, those rupees should instead be used for providing energetic and hygienic mid-day meals.

At first Kudos to my colleagues who decided to raise their voice against this disparity in earnings, that too after a hearty meal (Who cares about India after food!).  I counter argued the above statements and said, the buck does not stop there. It is not just Cricketers and other celebrities who earn much more than their worth. It is not just the ones who earn in millions doing the damage to the society.

I work in the IT industry and can very proudly (/”&#!!) say I am part of this whole sale imperialism (what else is globalization where India is not the leader). Remember for us 100 crore is a big amount and for a peasant in a village, one lakh package per month is a big thing. So either quit your job and talk or the best alternative is to shut up, sit back and think about ways to cross lakhs and start thinking about crore. India as a nation has already failed.

Jai 2013 !

Article Comment @Shrikanth - I did not complain about anything. But "already failed " had to be used because that is the simple plain truth.

Also I would like to say complainers are better than people who say "dont complain do something" as atleast the rantlings of complainers reach a lot of ears. Have been hearing this phrase also often nowadays.

Article Comment "India as a nation has already failed" - Heard it a lot of times from the kind of people who don't want to do anything and just want to complain about everything.

Article Comment U r right Balaji,
globalisation is what Western countries advocate until it suits them .it is a marketing political stratgey of Europe and U,S after they created lot of industrial capacities necesaary during world war !
so that they can conveniently dump old technology and products in the third world.

Article Comment Hi MK,

One can earn lakhs and also move on to crores. After quitting too. No, not be betting and spot fixing. But start some good venture. This way you find means to the lakhs and crores. You also provide means for a few indians for earning thousands and probably lakhs. All the Best!!
