When TGGT, TTGG

Sorry for the riddle in the title however what it meant was "When the going gets tough, the tough get going"

This is a very apt statement that portrays the current scenario in India. The past couple of years have been tumultuous for the people in India. Demonetization, GST, Beef Ban and what not. We were promised a "Achhe Din" (Good days ahead) not this.

Political parties and their underlying politicians have plundered the country of what was left of the British and Moghuls invasion. Not pointing fingers any particular party but the fact remains that there have been greedy individuals who in the expense of the rest of the country had profited and accumulated wealth to last generations. While a very few shrewd ones grew irrespective of who was in power the poor where kept poor.



Steering a vast country like India is a humongous task.  This can be related to a huge ship(like Titanic) which has been put in autopilot mode , the new captain arrives at the deck only to realize the imminent fact that they will hit the iceberg, Now as a last resort he tries to steer away sharply which causes the disturbance to the passengers (rich and poor). The rich unhappy that they are unable to dance in the ball room or have their sip of wine and the poor unhappy with the ruckus that has made his last piece of bread fall from hand. The impact is averted with minor bruises. Unlike the fate of titanic all are alive but now all complain that the captain has indeed steered in the wrong direction.

So ...  "When the going gets tough, the tough get going"

It is a tough situation for all and its only right that we pull our socks up and in the words of D.Trump "Make India Great Again" (not exactly what he said but does makes sense here)
