DAY 34 (...The typical BAABOO story..!!! )
This is something serious guys. I generally don't say anything against my country and I am proud to be an Indian too. But some things upset me a hell lot. And here is one of the examples....
Well...I did my B.Tech from a UPTU college in Bareilly. During our last year,we (some of the students) decided to apply for passport. According to the system and the so-called rules...its mandatory for the government to issue passport within 3 months (if all the enquiries get cleared). Our date of application was 2nd february,2009. We thought 3 months can get extended to 6 months at the max.
But now its one full year..almost! Can you imagine that??? And the icing on the cake is that all those who applied with me have got their passports and I am the only one stucked. You know why? Because just being tired of giving the bribes to each and every enquiry (which they call the fees) and being denied by my parents to do so as well...I just refused one of the LIU person who came to my hostel and was asking for RS.500/- again. I just gave him some obvious reasons and told him that my uncle is in police and all. He very convincingly agreed not to take it from me.
And then after leaving Bareilly too,since 8 months I have been just doing up and down to the place to find the status. And the answer which I get is...all the enquiries are cleared;its just that there was some error in the LIU report and they are correcting it...its none of your mistake madam.
I guess they are right..its none of my mistake...its a BLUNDER!!! A blunder to deny giving bribe...
And on top of it...the sarcasm which I get from my father...for not doing a thing correctly...takes my brain out!
and beat the hell out of them!!!
And for this ...I hate the Indian system as well! Not feeling so proud to be an Indian...these days!
