It was somewhere mid noon and I climbed down the stare case of Scindia House. Infact Scindia house is known for Income Tax offices and the DRT. All of a sudden just when I was on the building gate a person pushed me to the side. I was taken by shock as I was in my own dreams just walking and thinking. When I looked up I realised that 3-4 Advocates were standing in the line of the lift and 3-4 other persons were also present. At that time of the day usually there is no waiting list. I looked around. I saw one person near the lift, who had stopped the lift ( for me its hijacking). I asked him and he replied ek din sidhi use karne se koi fark nahi padta hai. I asked him further why it is being done and he said koi aa raha hai. On the main door two perons having income tax badge were there and on the road there were 2-3 more. They asked me not to stand near the gate and they were not allowing any taxi to stop in the lane. I wanted a taxi and they did not allow any one to stop there as if the road was a private road.
After around 15 minutes or so two cars came and a gentleman, may be in his 40s came out and he was given a warm welcome by those officers only and no other person was present. He did not look like a top IRS or IAS officer. The said person did not even look around, shook hands and proceeded. I felt as if a white elephant is walking with an egoist head. The 15 minutes which passed by in this entire episode just made me wonder that forget the ministers and top level government officials now even these mid level officers or may be upper mid level officers have started haunting the lives of common man and their presence just causes inconvinience. I just recalled the Clinton issue where to police had stopped people from going and coming on a street as the ex-first lady had come to that area. According to me by such treatments of common man each day the naukarshah's just keep slapping the face of democracy and killing the message rule of the people, by the people for the people...
Very honestly I feel that we do not live in the free India as visualised by the freedom fighters but in the same colonial country with the difference being that there we had a mission to free the country from foriegners but here we cannot even fight out as they are one of us... and part of us..
