What the recession really fucked.

I don't give a fuck about the RECESSION. What bothers me is the MORAL RECESSION that it has triggered.

I'm not a guy who bothers much. The fact is with time, I've grown the ability to react to situations only when they really bother me. Take the recession for now.
The world has gone Ga Ga about it. Oh my god! recession!! oh crapp!!! recession. etc etc shit.
Ask them what the recession really is and all they'll probably say is that markets have crashed. What the fuck do they actually understand about the recession? The answer is ZILCH.

Looking around I find that the Recession has become just a great excuse for the SHIT within. It has only magnified the mediocrities of men. Given heartlessness and miserliness a reason.

What? How?
Companies have cut off people in the name of recession. Companies that were till now paying their communication agencies in gold to make those very people "feel like family".
You are giving up people who gave up better pastures coz it felt like family being with you. You are cutting off people you conveniently beguiled into believing that you actually cared.
How very fucking interesting. I really, really love your family affairs.

People are cutting costs in the name of recession even when it hasn't hit them one bit.
You find even your local businesses wanting to pay you less for your services - in the name of recession! I had my mechanic wanting to charge me more for a servicing - KYONKI RECESSION HAI SAAB. SAB MEHENGA HAI! What the fuck! what next - my laundry guy or the maid??? I randomly wonder does even the dark alley prostitute use it for a bargain?

When people are not cutting down on their services, why are their clients are finding a reason in recession to squeeze the shit out of them by offering to pay them in peanuts!!!

Turn on the TV and you'll find random politicians ranting about the recession. I wonder how it doesn't affect the cars they bloody travel in and the morchaas they fucking take out. How it doesn't cut their campaigning costs. I wonder how it propels them to develop ETHICAL IDEOLOGIES that link so called characterless youth to economic trends. damn!! get these guys to take up teaching economics or something!! The potential of my country's untapped ideological treasure astounds me. Give me glasses someone.

The recession may or may not have affected the common man directly, but it definitely has affected his mediocre mind. Its propelled it to a new level of hypocrisy.
But you know what, ENOUGH CRAP. The next time some one throws the godamn recession crap as an excuse, I'm going to be the naive, 'i don't know about the world idiot' again and just let a finger do the talking. (mIm)

....Because seriously speaking, recession or no recession, my conscience, my work and my integrity comes WITH NO DISCOUNT.

    Your knowledge and awareness of the recession is unmatched. Simply PROFOUND!!!!!

  3. This reminds me the time of 9/11 when people were using the similar kind of excuses to cut off people.
    This has given me an idea to write a screenplay, using recession as a background.

    pushkaraj sir, your ideas and concepts confound me. i agree i am a common mortal faced with the brunt of your superior intellect. however, i hope you will grant my comments an audience. i would like to pose the question, how do you club economics and morals? though economics to some extent has been tempered by Kantian ideals, i do not think it can be related to morals.
    somebody who is not as well of as you, and has to eke out a living might have to forego moral dilemmas, the kind of which you have raised, to survive. morals do not count for crap when faced with hunger or the spectre of hunger. i wish you leave your comfy office and try living a day as the people you castigate.
    your existentialist ideas have a profoundly elitist tilt to them which unmask themselves and unravel with each word your brain spews.
    to summarise, what you have typed is an unmitigated disaster.
    i do not wish to hurt your ego nor smash your ideology. i just wish to introduce you to a different perspective, which by the way is a reality.


  6. MY REPLY:
    Dear hormazd,
    firstly, what you do not understand is that I have not commented on
    any ideologies. I have not compared economics to morals. I have
    plainly stated my view. And you are free to think whatsoever you wish.
    Im a common man. I do not understand kantian or cuntian ideologies. I
    act. I react.
    And about stepping out of my comfy office - i went to the same college
    as you. and you have seen me around. what you havent seen is that in
    those days i was living on one meal a day. My parents' were at
    bankruptcy. I was working post college to stay in college. and living
    with a family of four in a room small enough to be my bathroom today.
    If money becomes your excuse for immorality, so be it. But when it
    comes to me, i have always lived by what is right.Morality is a
    personal choice. I dont look up to the man with morals. Nor do i look
    down on the man without them. each one's choices are their own. And
    that's exactly what i have written.

    The world may do as it pleases, but my integrity will have no discount.

  7. wow! what a classic "frog in the well" view of things.

    but then, aren't we all the same, thinking that their's the only sky there is.

    i'm just another frog in another well.

  8. better a frog, true to his colours and knows his well,
    than just another scampering chameleon who just blends in with everything the whole world colours.

  9. but what will a frog know of all the colors of the world. for him its but black and white.

    i guess some greys won't harm.

    scamper around and you'll know.

  10. I've hopped and scampered. and i know what i've seen. I just chose to keep what's worth living for. and the rest didn't matter.
