I tried stopping myself from writing this one, but couldn’t help it. The events in the recent past and the ones happening as you’re reading inspired me to think, to question myself and the others- people with sensibility and common sense. Is this what democracy means? The definition says it’s a government by the people, of the people and for the people. Well who are we fooling here? All the right we have is that we can vote. We can’t actually raise a voice saying I don’t like this, unless you’re a big shot politician or someone powerful. Then again, are we really interested?
We are selectively interested, so to say, we are interested in signing petitions which someone has conjured out of thin air and like fools we sign it. Put up a watermark or frame on the Independence day and republic day and my favorite one i.e., talking about it in front of the TV. Is this what a common man has to offer, are we so ignorant that we cannot understand what is happening or probably we are careless that we don’t give a dime? We need to change, ultimately we are the ones who suffer.
I chose the word chaos because that’s the state of our beloved country. The higher-ups are doing whatever they want, their demands are illogical. How will the country progress if there’s chaos at every level, at every project and every new idea. I’m not quoting any instances because I don’t want it to be a controversial article. I’m afraid it already is, HAHAHAHA. But seriously, we need to institute discipline in the way we work and discipline cannot be taught to us. Probably we are just incorrigible.
There is a saying “the more the merrier”, there is also a saying “too many cooks spoil the broth”. A country- it’s people, need to be smart in applying these sayings. We often do quite the opposite. We celebrate things by causing chaos and destruction, we are ready to break everything regardless of it’s importance. We divide people and fight on petty religious and regional issues. The common man doesn’t give a dime about these things. I wonder who fills in the protests- food for thought.
In conclusion, I’d like to ask this – do we as a nation deserve this, as citizens aren’t we responsible enough, as individuals morally obligated, and as intellectuals need to rise up and change?
