10 Emotions India Went Through In 2013

2013 has been a bittersweet ride for us as a nation. From the highs to the lows, we as a country experienced different shades of emotions throughout. From tumultuous to memorable, here’s a wrap at all the emotions we faced as a country that kept us going all along.

1. BITTERSWEET: Sachin’s Farewell
Though it was well on its way, we never really wanted it to hit us. And then it did. The god of cricket was ready to hang his boots & bid adieu to several of his fans across the world. This year will be etched in every Sachin fan’s memory.

2. DISAPPOINTMENT: IPL Match-Fixing involving Sreesanth
We’ve had many match-fixing scandals before. And every time a fresh case of fixing controversy appears, we lose a little faith in the game.

3. INDIFFERENCE: Bollywood’s 100 Crore club.
Now only a 500 crore box-office collection can make us sit up & notice our Bollywood cash registers again. Maybe. Just maybe.

4. PRIDE: Mission To Mars: Mangalyaan
Mars Orbiter Mission is India’s first interplanetary mission to planet Mars with an orbiter craft designed to orbit Mars in an elliptical orbit. Makes us super proud!

5. REALITY CHECK: Asaram Bapu and son get arrested for rape
Now people should actually turn to God. Since these self-professed “Godmen” are upto other things.

6. CONFUSION: Arushi’s Verdict
This case dragged on for a long time. Though the court judgment has been passed & the accused are behind bars, we’ll never know what exactly happened on that ill-fated night.

7. DISILLUSIONMENT: The real face of Tarun Tejpal
We always saw Tejpal spearheading honest journalism in the country by the means of his publication, Tehelka. A sexual assault case later, we don’t know when & how a saviour became an offender.

8. SHAME: Supreme Court ruling against homosexuality
Our heads hung in shame once the Supreme Court verdict was out criminalizing gay-sex. We should stop with the whole “we are the land of Kamasutra” when we can’t even prove to be a ground where all individuals are given the basic right to love and express. This isn’t India of the present or past but of the dark ages.

9. ANGER: The Devyani Khobragade Incident
The Devyani Khobragade controversy led to a stand-off between the Indian & US government. She was charged on December 11 of committing visa fraud. A strip search later, India was appalled.

10. INSPIRATION: The rise of the underdogs Aam Admi Party
This country wakes up to many dreams & aspirations every day. Some wake up to success while others sleep over the failure. However this one man & his able crew proved how you can be an ‘aam aadmi’ & still make a difference. Arvind Kejriwal’s heroic rise along with his meteoric success & subsequent victory in Delhi elections spells a success tale like no other.
