Make a Difference

Finally, some good seems to have come out of my interest in watching newer ads and posting reviews about them. The following comes from the new Tata Tea ad that aptly says Election ke din agar aap vote nahi kar rahe ho, toh aap so rahe ho, i.e. 'If on the election day, you are not voting then you are as good as asleep!'

Since I have written so much about bidding good-byes to politicians, let me now tell you how you can make a difference as well.

Hey,I've been awakened and I want you to be awake too. I realized how important it is to stop complaining but start voting to make a difference. And now, it's simpler than ever before!Jaago re! One Billion Votes - a nationwide movement on voter registration - has made it possible to fill a voter registration form online and that too in just 5 minutes!

Go to to learn more and register to vote right now.

If you have already registered to vote, you can still register with Jaago re! One Billion Votes movement and get periodic confirmation of your voter status, and election related news and reminders. Believe it or not, even registered voters sometimes do not figure in voter lists!

Go to for more information, and to learn about voting related rules and procedures.

Do it, man, do it! At 18, I am doing it too. Make a difference!

Richa said…
welcome to Jagruti and its one good topic u picked to write about.. and nice write up
I have registred already, but for those who will proceed to register, lemme say it is a tiring and enlongated process..:D
Akansha Agrawal said…
Thanks for the welcome!I'm happy I could spread the word :)

@descrying the shadows
Well, it's your choice.But where it's the country's loss, it's also yours.Don't you want 'your' country to have some good politicians, who will for a change think first about 'your' country?And pray, how do you propose to make a difference by 'not' voting?

Thanks a lot:)
I agree that the process still remains lengthy, but it's been cut by a tremendous amount. Take this from a person who's seen her mother running from pillar to post for the past 6 yrs. for an id after she lost it, and still not obtaining it! After I'm done with mine, I'm going to get hers done as well.

Are you aware that the news you are watching is interlaced with Communist China's propaganda,as
Communist China maps a realm of news with innocent lives?
Communist China is scheming a millennial terrorist activity by manipulating people's behaviors
through electromagnetic waves to contain criticism and harm innocent human lives.

1. The anomaly in community traffic of cars and motorcycles and drag racing,and reckless honking by
cars and motorcycles is exceeding an unprecedented level.
2. Communist China has the technology to scan the human brain waves through military satellite and
to discern and decipher their thoughts,scheming to instill individual interference focusing on
each individual in need using the satellite electromagnetic waves.
3. Deploying electromagnetic waves is poised to project onto the human brain with certain
sounds for the perception of grossly traumatizing or startling pain,or deploying the broadcast
of noise via electromagnetic waves in sleeping humans with edited clips of films or through
voice or image signals onto our brains or besiege our sensory functions with fabricated
audible and sensory illusions.
4. It manipulates one's moods,such as smiling,nervousness,disgust,panic,anger,sorrow,
desires,appetite,and so forth.
5. It interferes the human brain's thinking capability,memory or linguistic capability,to name a
few,causing spasms of muscles and fingers in the left and right hands,stinging aches
throughout the body,coughing,yawning,trembling,involuntary blinking of the eye,runny
nose and so forth.
6. Electromagnetic waves are deployed to hinder the motoring functions of the body and neck,
disrupt the heartbeat or respiration,manipulate dizziness,deprive one's sleep,spasm,saliva
gland,dental neural pain,etc.
7. Watch out that Communist China is infiltrating the news media by deploying electromagnetic
waves to besiege the broadcast media,map out viral disillusion or erroneous perception,and
investigate threats of brainwashing in viral spreading.
8. It further moved to deploy various symptoms in what one sees of media icons,gesture terms,
adding a skewed interpretation to one's cognitive awareness,misleading an individual to
hallucinate or suffer,such as the North Korean's rigid smile,which is a tactic Communist
China often deploys to counter the people.
9. By observing the resolution accuracy of Communist China's sound and image (scenario)
interference projected onto the human's brain,this can only be achieved with a certain level
of frequencies at the source of interference,hence there is no doubt that it has to be the
electromagnetic wave. Yet questions remain as to what range of frequencies the source of
interference deploys,or what kind of electromagnetic waves insulation chamber would suffice
to provide an insulation yield? Communist China might deploy specific metal alloys as small scale
molecular antennas, which are attached to the human brain in large number,creating
electromagnetic waves when the human brain is in function,where the current created by
Communist China's electromagnetic interference would poise to amplify in a staggering
number of multiplication,which Communist China can detect at all times to discern and
muscles would excel the generation of electrode,which in turn create a corresponding
electromagnetic wave within.
10. Some of Communist China's intimidation experiences in 2002:6.9 "Hey,are you tired of living?"
6.14 "We had concocted the bombing incident at the U.S. embassy in Pakistan"
"Jiang Zhemin ordered us to kill you,but without creating scenes"6.16 "The Pakistani
civilian troops confessed that they had schemed the bombing of the U.S. embassy in
Pakistan,which we had manipulated them to confess,so what are you going to do about it?"
6.19 "Hey,why don't you just go ahead and commit suicide""We are going to scheme
murder using the public bus"6.20 "Commit suicide by burning charcoal,get it?"6.25 "Jiang
Zhemin just does not like you,go hit your head against the wall".
11. I reckon that there are victims abound out in the street,no less alarming than wars,and those
not in the know or did not understand that Communist China's simple electromagnetic design
could easily turn people against each other,create moving incidents,little lese to say mislead
the youth to broach down the wrong path,suicidal prompting,design and fabrication of a host
of society news (which Communication China refers to as movie making),as Communist China has had a
decade long of the technology,and has long abused its technological advantages to scheme up design
of abusing human lives by arranging fabricated news to poison and infiltrate the free
world,manipulate and misguide the contents of the media,and deploy brainwashing and malicious
spread of viruses,done with insinuation and riddles.The fact that Communist China's slaughtering
the innocent had been the result of a high level of calculation,and a high level of rationalization,
where the threats are in existence,and cannot be ignored of their detrimental severity.
12. Communist China often coerce people to watch news compiled by the reporter Lu Yuling of the cable
news in order for them to be saved,but few are aware that Communist China had merely deploy the
reporter to entrap many people. I do envision that those that turn to committing crime as framed
by Communist China,the extra sufferings by the ordinary people,and the deaths of many innocent
lives will not go unnoticed as hindered by a condoning attitude.
13. Nazi Hu Jintao, Jiang Zemin, Chinese Liberation Army, security police and armed police have committed suppression and massacre on their own civilians. Hu, Jiang and the other atrocious butchers owe these innocent civilians! More horrible and serious is that they are using mysterious killing technologies to cause harms to human brains around the world, making advantage of numerous international politicians and journalists to help them commit atrocities and beautify their actions, aiming to overturn and suppress those innocent people and cover up their terrorist acts and win fame by cheating the world. Securing in the knowledge that they have strong backing, these arrogant and shameless butchers have committed tortures and mass killing cruelly to those innocent ones around the world. Unfortunately, neither these politicians and nor journalists knowing what is what would dare to express their conscience.
14. The inhumane acts and atrocities committed by Nazi China are far more vicious than that of Nanjing massacre in China during WWII committed by Japanese army, as Chinese government is using mysterious technologies to commit massacres to masses of bare-handed civilians around the world as well as launch violence and terrorist activities to suppress these completely unarmed people’s freedom of speech. These demons, like Hu, Jinag and Chinese Liberation Army, despise the chastity, dignity and precious life of those innocent ones and suppress the emotions of their beloved. Meanwhile, relying on the condition that most of people in the world will not be able to witness their vicious acts of violence and behaviors they have committed unscrupulously and shamelessly, these Chinese Liberation Army enjoys using cruel ways to torture, massacre and trample on these innocent people, physically and mentally, in one free world. The arrogant Hu, Jiang and those jackals nurtured under such ferocious power treat themselves as the symbol of benevolence and hero, as they fail to learn their gutless and vicious acts to trample on those innocent people. If these demons, butchers and dregs of human, such as Hu, Jiang and Chinese Liberation Army who have become frenzied and conscienceless appeared in the site of Nanjing massacre in WWII, they definitely would be the leading roles to act atrocities!
15. We don’t want to see masses of innocent people to fall victim to the hell on earth built by red China where they will be susceptible to tortures and massacres for thousands of years.
16. Despite being even unable to fend for themselves in face of the high-tech detriments and attacks from China, we can not tolerate the fact that these politicians and journalists will become the accomplices to help China commit its terrorist acts and suppression on these innocent people in the current era or an unknown future.
17. In view of the notorious, vicious and sinister Hu, Jiang, Chinese Liberation Army with blood-stained hands, we just cast doubt over whether these greats of knowing what is what who have negotiated with these demons will show their conscience to save these innocent civilians or will act just for the sake of their profits, or are under the control of China. In this current drowned world, how will these innocent lives be treated in face of the atrocious acts committed by these diabolical figures, or when these innocent people will witness the practice of democracy in China? Will these phenomena turn out to be the joint efforts and endeavors achieved by China and those powerful figures in the world? Are we really dedicated to overturning such adversity? Our goal is to eliminate the vicious power one day with our strenuous efforts, and we absolutely will achieve it!

Welcome here...

And I am with Sid. The worst thing is, I have applie for one; been ages- I am yet to receive it! And I am tired of asking them again and again.

And please read the notice before you publish a post. Save it as a draft. The Administrators of the blog will publish it.

Unknown said…
thanks for the post..i am applying now...:)
Tushar Mangl said…
@ Sid, Kartz
Both of you need a special jagruti i guess
U people don't vote
Very bad, and unfortunate i must state.
and karthik, just to clear it out, i published this post :-)
Kartz said…
Ummm... The post was in the pending list. So, was wondering how it was published... And well, I have a lot of patience- which unfortunately ran out, considering the number of times I have approached the necessary people to get my Voter-ID...

@Chinky Chinese
Your rigmarole reminds me of Chun-Su Li (of the 'Mind Your Language' fame... Anyone who has watched the series will know what I mean). At least you did not confuse your L's and R's... :P"

:D Who knows? 'Chairman Mao' has also been 'inspirational'...

Good luck... ;-)

@Mr. Chinese(I think it is more likely Mr.Taiwanese)
I am aware of the tensions between the people of Taiwan and the Republic of China but wouldn't it have been better if you would've posted this on your own blog?Coz I can't see any interconnection between my post and your comment!

Thank you :-)

Why don't you try once more?This time do it through Jaago Re, it might give you a better response. And for the second part, well Tshhar cleared that!

I'm glad you're doing it as well!:)

And people, sorry if I sound like a brand ambassador for Jaago Re. Just to clarify I'm not! It's just that it's a good initiative, and I feel it is up to us to spread the word and get more people involved.

@descrying the shadows
I'm still waiting for an answer...
Kartz said…
Heh heh heh... Not to worry; never even thot of u as a brand ambassador dudette. And yeah, I regged long back (Jaago Re). Just tht the Voter-ID stuff got me p*ssed off...

Neways, no harm in trying again... Lets c...

@ all
Country's loss ?
are you kidding me ? hey ask me if i am aware of what is happening around in this country .. I am .. and ask me why I do not want to vote, don't assume reasons for it ... i wud vote for an individual I deem fit but no i do not see anyone fit .. the day I do .. i will make my vote count .. till that day I will not let the fate depend on my vote ...
it's easy to get moved by such adds and i appreciate the spirit you people have .. nothing wrong with it, infact it's nice .. but hey tushar .. don say very bad without knowing the other persons reason ...
and one more thing ppl .. the individual again is dominated by his party agenda .. now tell me the person i should vote from the constituency I am in and why ?
convince me and I will do it .. else lets stick to our convictions and not talk about stuff considering this place to be an ideal one..

@descrying the shadows
Dude, I'm not asking anyone to vote 'right' now. It was for getting a voter's id. An id is of use, not just for voting, but for a lot of other issues(legal ones of course like getting passports,etc).

If you feel no candidate deserves your vote, Indian Constitution provides you with a right to declare that as well. There's a form(which should ideally be available at all booths, I think) that you can fill up and declare the same. I have a forwarded mail regarding that provision but I'll have to dig it up. Will do so...
