Everything today is about sounding right or to be more precise, to be tuned in to the same station or chat group with the times. One recognises this unaltering pattern of post television reality in every inch of the interfaced smiley lingual world. But something like all cultural epochs something pulls everyone back, quite like a helping old pull by the life-saving parachute. Recognising such unobvious social facts, on the occasion of the demise of a friend and a comrade of mine, ultimately sends me the confirmation of uncharacterised socio acceptable senility characteristic of the societal indolence.

The use of state machinery and legal subterfuge to oppress dissent has occurred in the past, and those instances are indisputably defined as the dark age of this nation.

The use of state machinery and legal subterfuge to oppress dissent has occurred in the past, and those instances are indisputably defined as the dark age of this nation. Plurality and inclusiveness constitute the bulwark of a dynamic democracy rather than restrained borders and economic growth. The hyper-nationalist or rather a jingoistic wave doing the rounds today is trying to reduce the issue of violation of the constitutionally granted right to dissent, into a bipolar struggle between nationals and anti-national, and effectively aiding cultural balkanization.

These fascist elements camouflaged in nationalist garb use the sentiment associated with defence casualties to infuse notions of insecurity, hyper-nationalism and alarm among the politically gullible and naive.

These fascist elements camouflaged in nationalist garb use the sentiment associated with defence casualties to infuse notions of insecurity, hyper-nationalism and alarm among the politically gullible and naive. Defence personnel are respected and appreciated for their selfless service and sacrifice to nationalist ideals, but to justify war and hatred to satisfy the sentiments of casualties of war would only result in incrementing the number of casualties. Intolerance to critical analysis of national policy is regressive, to say the least. I quote “The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism”.

To explain all the cultural or philosophical paraphernalia that may seem at the top paras, I wish to elaborate one of the humblest of anecdotal references. Everyone today engaged with the tools and means of society, extending from fiat currencies to black marketing hoardings hopes for a batman and Gotham. That in itself projects a kind of dark universal existence.

The fundamental and simultaneously obscure bond between the boring and the trendy is the one that dominates in the twilight of social stare.
