And as different governments over the years have addressed all the wrong problems in our educational system, I can only liken it to an imaginary minister again focusing on non-issues!

 “Minister, we are so happy you have been appointed. We have to do something about our educational system!”

 “Yes, yes, I am going to tackle the problem immediately. Bring me the uniforms the children wear to school and also call the tailor!”

"Minister sir, the books have to be revised, they are outdated!"

"A little longer tailor, yes, yes, cover the knees, the ankles and right up to the toes, why not cover the toes also!"

"Children are failing sir!"

"Yes, yes let her wear a salwar under it!"

"The teachers don't know their subject!"

"Use thicker cloth!"

"There are no chairs, no desks, in some places no schools!"

"Lengthen it! The toes can be seen, stretch it more!"

"The children are running to coaching classes!"

"Widen the skirt, you should not see the shape of the ankle!"

"There is cheating and copying during exams sir!"

"Broaden it near the thigh, none should guess there is a leg inside!"

"There are no text books, and the ones that are there have only blank pages inside as the printer wasn't paid by your department!"

"Pull it higher up to cover the waist! That's it, good!"

"Children are still learning things by heart instead of understanding the subject!"

"Now let’s start with the boys pant!"

"Nobody knows English in schools sir!"

"Double the pant piece! Use more cloth!"

"The fourth standard students don't know their alphabets!"

"No crease in the front!"

"The fifth standard students know no arithmetic!"

"Too tight behind!"

"The eighth class student can't write a sentence sir!"

"Thick baggy pants for first standard boys!"

"The tenth standard children are using crayons!"

"Thick baggy pants for the fifth standard boys and for the sixth and seventh and eighth.."

"All children failed their SSC sir!"

"And for the ninth and tenth also!"

The minister looked at the long skirt and baggy pants which the tailor held out for him, his eyes gleamed with satisfaction, “We will be known throughout the world for the best educational system in any country!" he said proudly.

In the days of yore when honesty and integrity still had their place in society, treachery and disloyalty, and acts of betrayal were done surreptitiously, away from the public glare. But as I saw the thirteen Karnataka MLAs moving out of their Mumbai hotel, on their way to Goa, after having decided to switch floors, now smiling and waving at the crowd, not hiding their heads in shame, ashamed with having betrayed their constituents but actually grinning and in full view of the people outside, I realized that such acts of deception had become an accepted norm in the eyes of the world, at least in our country, if not elsewhere!

They were elected by a people, for the party which had fielded them. They were elected by a people against another party the people were against. They were the representatives of the voice of the people, how then could they have ever thought of acting otherwise?

But even as my TV screen showed their grinning faces and wildly gesticulating hands, I realized that these expressions of glee were directed to an admiring and receptive public outside. Very frankly, you wouldn’t show expressions which the audience did not want. You would not walk out of a court jumping with glee and waving to a crowd after being convicted of murder, because the crowd outside, baying for your blood would lynch you right then and there, even before the custodians of law and order could have done anything otherwise.

But here, thirteen men who had betrayed their people, waved to the crowd, who I am sure waved back at them, or at least were receptive to their triumphant expressions.

Like I said, once upon a time, such deeds were done scrumptiously because people were ashamed.

 “Yes, we gave in to our carnal selves, but we are sorry!” showed the expression on the face of the convicted rapist as he was led off to jail.

 “I wish I had not killed him!” whispered the killer silently as he looked at the gallows that also silently beckoned him to his punishment.

But there was no remorse in the eyes of these thirteen men. Worse, they looked out of the bus onto our own eyes, and waved because what they saw was a country encouraging and uplifting them for their dastardly act.

What stage have we reached, when betrayal is accepted as a normal?

Lies endorsed as a way of life?

Fake news forwarded even without finding out if it is true or false?

A society that accepts with approval and appreciation, what once was done with shame.

Do remember; we waved back..!

Many of us apply the concealer in a semi-circular pattern to reduce the puffiness under our eyes. However the best way to apply the concealer is in a conical pattern under the eyes.

Do not keep your hair long if you cannot maintain it. Your hairstyle must suit the shape of your face as well.

Nothing looks better than a healthy and glowing skin.

Mix you moisturiser and skin Illuminator together and apply it to get an effect of a glowing skin.

Monthly visit to your parlour is a must in order to look well groomed and maintained.

Minimal care of your skin like getting your upper lips done, regular waxing, getting your eyebrows are few in the must to do list.

As said your haircut needs to compliment the shape of your face. Remember your haircut can transform your personality completely and thus

It is advisable to regularly get your hair trimmed to avoid split ends and other hair woes. 

Clothes: Wearing clothes that fit well will make you look better and confident. Always choose well fitted clothes and colour that suits your personality.

CHOICE OF SHOES CAN MAKE OR BREAK YOUR ENTIRE LOOK. Choose your shoes wisely to look polished and make an impact on others.
