Sarkar Raj!!

Trust Star News to make a movie out of the Jet Airways layoffs. The newsreader starts with a pitiful story of how this young boy has his hopes dashed, and is at a complete loss as to what to do, because he has lost the most important thing in the world – his job.

And on the other hand, we have our esteemed politicians making a ‘Sarkar Raj’ or should we say, ‘Gunda Raj’ out of the situation (they say, they won’t let the flights take off from Mumbai airport, unless the retrenched staff are re-instated).

I agree, losing a job is terrible indeed, and I’ve been through that phase not once but twice so far! But its NOT the end of the world, as the media makes it out to be. Its not like the kids there have lost a leg and a hand in a blast. The hard reality is that the whole world is in recession and layoffs are inevitable. But we can find other alternatives…we are young and strong, and finding another job is not the world’s most daunting task.

Grow up, people, and find ways to beat the situation. Don’t make another ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ out of this please! Spare us, we are bothered sick by the recession already.
