hirundine608 commented on Monarchy Vs democracy:

James Allen

This blog is read by thousands of readers across the globe and they make their own comments on the relative topic in their own way agreeing or disagreeing with the author and such an exercise is interesting as it brings plus and minus together. At times I feel that the style and material provided by the different authors warrant a bigger publicity to the benefit and interest of the overall readership, hence reproduction of certain selected few. This time it is James Allen ‘Hirundine’ who as usual made a comment on my blog post ‘Monarchy Vs democracy’ dated 19th June’16 quite in brief and highly meaningful. I wish the readers go through it with interest. It is reproduced below:

Democracy little more than mob rule where 51% of the people take away the rights of the other 49%. T. Jeffereson.

Democracy can and is, manipulated. Monarchy is absurd. That people are born into wealth and land ownership, should not have the automatic right to govern others. Land ownership is also absurd. We are born into this world with fists tightly clenched and we exit with them wide-open.

Democracy is a method of counting votes, for a candidate. It does not guarantee freedom nor idividuality.
Cheers Jamie


Isn’t it that disciplined readership of blogs is yet a rare community?

images (3)_thumbThere was a time when the choice of readers was confined to books alone and of course to news papers later and then icame blogs when computers emerged as a revolution in the current era with a magic wand to sort out a solution to any conceivable thought in the field of messaging followed by emergence of blogging as a great communicational tool. My association with the computers goes back to mid 1960s and with active blogging in the Ist decade of the current century. My fancy for it stretched to five blogs at a time daily on varying subjects mainly inclusive of human relation (HR). It was too tedious a job but I was able to manage all of them with requisite response from the readers all over the world. Currently my concentration is confined to two blogs only and that too with certain unavoidable gaps in their frequency of release from time to time. Readership of my blog ‘Avenues’ stands at present at close to 3 lakhs globally.

The strength of a blog is determined through it’s readers who form the backbone of it. This post is in no way a pointer to the readers and is simply aimed at sharing with them on what I have been experiencing in the field. They make a reference of some problem at their end seeking my advice and in case the subject is similar to the ones raised by several others, I release a composite post exclusively for the topic so referred. What actually follows is that several of them continue the same thing again and again without going through the relative post. There are many who simply ask ‘What happened’?, ‘Any development’?, ‘Please reply’, ‘Help me’, ‘Waiting for your answer’, etc. Such questions are without mentioning any head and tail of it in the absence of which it is just impossible to answer their queries leading them to conclude that I didn’t care for their question. Pension issue is a burning problem in State Bank of India in which context a case is pending with Delhi High Court10881486_1016309615062877_1718043244602304723_n_thumb and whatever is the progress or otherwise is reported on a specific Page in this blog NewsPage routinely by an exponent with scholarly pursuit on pension issues, KR Saini, apprising the readers of the latest update but many of them prefer to shoot a separate query like ‘What is the development?’ instead of bothering to refer to the NewsPage which tendency indicates that they only take the issue cursorily. Those who really feel serious about the dispute are supposed to go to the right site on the blog appreciating the efforts of the author who has embedded his heart and soul to the cause of the pensioners with his indefatigable spirits. It is also the need on the part of the readers/pensioners to associate themselves with whatever are the issues in a committed measure and not just an onlooker. Marching forward jointly is always likely to elicit the desired outcome.
