What an ambition!!

The other day, I had been to a park with my little cousins. As I watched them play, my focus shifted around the place a bit and I saw a little boy who wasn't playing. He was busy looking here and there. I called him by my side. He must be around 12, I guess. He seemed to be, sort of...umm.. serious. Too serious I must say...or you can say far sighted. I asked him his name, in which building he stayed,etc. After a moment I realised I was in the middle of a conversation. Then, literally out of the blue this question popped out of my mouth,"What's your ambition, what do you want to do in life?". And the reply which I got made me really confused! I just did not know whether to laugh or to cry! He said,

"Later in my life, I'll join the armed forces. I'll do the best I can for the force as well as India. Eventually, after many years of doing service [he laughs] , I'm hoping of becoming the chief of the army staff. And the next thing which I'll do will be the most important thing.....I'll the overthrow the president.....[My lips turned into a big 0]... I'll take over the country and the first thing I'll do is inculcate discipline into the people of India. The next thing task will be to shoot all the politicians. They are really the demons for a country like India. After my country becomes self-reliant, I'll restore democracy and then......."

I waved my hand beckoning my cousins. He got the signal and he stopped. He knew I was a bit nervous."Everyone seems to shudder when I tell this to them. Did I say anything wrong?". I shook my head and walked away.......

What the hell is going on? Is this the impact of news, the internet, some television soaps or what? Can anyone help me?

So did you like this article? Then why don't you show it some love?

A very patriotic citizen I guess. But politics and government need not be the only reason!
