The Problem is: Every Parent always assumes any Drug Addict, as someone else’s Child.

It’s good to keep generating ideas. But there’s must be some deep thinking before making them public. Particularly when the ideas relate to school students and also, when the idea or statement relates to sensitive issue. But BJP has a habit of scoring points, wherever and whenever it can. Taking the latest example for instance. Seeing that talking about drug menace in Punjab has become a fashion, a Punjab BJP leader has suggested a mandatory drug tests for all students above class 8.

BJP Leader Vineet Joshi has even submitted the memorandum to chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, in this regard. Mr. Joshi is of the view that since addicts mostly belong to young age group, a screening at schools and colleges will help. for the screening he suggests urine and blood tests at time of admission in school. Akali Dal ministers are not prepared to take the proposal seriously. And rightly so. But the BJP ministers are considering its viability and the possible methods of implementation.

Whatever the numbers, such as — As many as 67% of rural households have at least one addict OR in some areas, the use of heroin among 15-25-year-olds is as high as 75% — one can’t have such screenings, not only in the school level, but in college level as well. As a matter of fact, such screenings are not good for any adult out of school as well. Why? As Drug addiction, is not a simple issue. Drug addiction has social stigma attached to it. Who will take the responsibility of the consequences (social stigma attached or social boycott) of the student (or any individual, if the findings of such screenings become public?

I saw many parents and teachers supporting such mandatory drug tests, but they are surely not considering the privacy of a child or an individual. They are mindlessly supporting this, simply assuming that, a child trapped in the drug addiction is always someone else’s child. This is not true, as every drug addict is somebody’s child. There are much better ways to tackle Drug addiction in any society.

The Government can educate parents, through various modes of information channels, about the tell-tale signs of addiction to any drugs. Some of these include — remaining aloof, distancing oneself from the society, suspicious stains in cloths, suspicious smells, bad company, loss of appetite, abnormal mood swings etc. These are just broad examples, an expert can inform about these signs and behaviors in a better manner. The dissemination of such expert information is Government’s responsibility. Doing mandatory blood and urine tests to nail down a drug user is simply not the work of the Government. Taking into account the various stigmas associated to drug use, it’s always better to leave the decision of Drug screening and rehabilitation to the individual, parents and family.

One of the reasons for drug addiction in Punjab and elsewhere is the drug trafficking from Pakistan. The Government at Centre must take steps to decrease that inflow. That apart, opiates are easily available in Punjab due to its cultivation inf neighboring Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. The Governments of these states must try to curb such illegal cultivation of drugs.

Do Indians understand Cartoons ? On Indian Republic Day

It’s easier to say: I understand cartoons without getting offended.

Yes, these are some thoughts which came to my mind on the eve of India’s 66th Republic Day, which we celebrated only yesterday. The thoughts pertained to Cartoons, and having the sensibility to understand the sarcasm and humor within. The chain of thoughts began with a Question: Do we understand Cartoons? Or more pointedly — Do Indians understand Cartoons or Political cartoons or religious cartoons?

On the morning of 7 January 2015, at about 11:30 local time, two masked gunmen armed with assault rifles and other weapons forced their way into the offices of the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris. They fired up to 50 shots, killing eleven people and injuring eleven others during their attack. An extremely sad incident. Two people who thought themselves to be acting on behalf of God, didn’t think twice killing the same creatures the God created. The God which they themselves adhered to. God is God, whatever way one wants to see him/her.

Every logical person saw the gruesome act as the killers’ lack of ability to appreciate satire and humor. Or they saw the act as the killers’ lack of ability to digest a thought contrary to killers’ belief system. Even when those particular cartoons offended someone, that doesn’t mean one can kill fellow human being.

Now lets come to another cartoon which offended a section of people in India and abroad (those who are people of Indian Origin).

When India’s Mars Orbiter reached Mars’s orbit a couple of months ago, NYT published a cartoon, wherein an Indian with loin and turban and a cow, is shown knocking on the door of an elite club of Western Academics or scientists. Many Indians on Twitter termed the cartoon as racist. Here’s the cartoon.

indian villager mars orbitor cartoon

The above cartoon offended some Indians to such an extent that NYT has to publish apology and explain to them that the cartoon was only using stereotypes (eg. India the country of snake Charmers) to bring some laughter. If India is proud of its culture and people, the cartoon doesn’t seem too offending. Aren’t we a country of farmers with animals? Don’t snake charmers still exist in India?

To conclude my thoughts on: Do Indians understand cartoons? I want to bring to your notice another cartoon which became the talk of the Social networks, metros a year or two ago. Here’s the cartoon:

offending ambedkar cartoon


The above Cartoon was in a textbook published by the NCERT. Few Dalit Thinkers found it anti-dalit. And this ensued a sense of outrage among a section of Indians, to the extent that the cartoon has to be removed from the textbook. Guess who came in support of the cartoon (to retain it in the textbook), the same Twitter and Facebook using Indians, who lately saw the NYT Mars Mission Cartoon as ‘Racist’.

Thus, Do Indians or for that matter anyone really understands cartoons? Or does our response, depends on the side of the debate we find ourselves on? Please do think over the question…

PS: Unknowingly, these musings came on the day Great Cartoonist R. K. Laxman left us. A sad day for every cartoon lover. R. K. Laxman, May You Rest in Peace.
