DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS THE WORST THING WITH US INDIANS?
I will tell you that! WE ARE JUST NOT IN FOR ANY CHANGE! However sick of the system we maybe, we are simply too regressive to stand up for an alternative.
In a discussion with a group of friends in the morning, I realised how difficult it is to change INDIANS! Powerless as I was, since I did not have my Voter ID I was trying to convince my friends of voting for AAP. Some were BJP supporters, while the others stuck with Congress. They had their own valid reasons for it, but the only thing that agitated me was that if you are completely fine with the system, why did you always criticise it? First you cry about the corruption in India, and then when someone comes to talk about a corruption free country, you are suspicious of them as well!
It is certain that we can’t have a corruption free India, and I will tell you the reason for that too. People like you and me, who have a decent living, people from the upper middle class, people who have enough to bribe others for their work, will never want a change. Ask yourself, if you can pay “donation” to get your stupid child admitted in a B-School, why the hell will you want a change?
It is not the government who is corrupt, we had made them so! We are responsible for their actions. Had we acted, questioned and protested on the spot, this sad day wouldn’t have come!
I know I don’t have the right to say all this when I have not voted myself, but I am upset with the way people with that power are behaving. Some vote for a certain party just because their parents told them to, while others don’t want to take a chance with the alternative because they are new and don’t have enough power. Some said we will vote for the ever victorious party in our area, because it is certain AAP won’t win and if we vote for them, we are simply wasting our vote! Different minds, different votes! But people, isn’t our cause common? Aren’t we all fighting with that same giant of evil hanging around all of us?
During the discussion, a friend rightly pointed at me and said that if I am so eager for AAP to win, I should have made sure that I have my voter ID before time. I accept my mistake. I surely wouldn’t have behaved as careless had it been the case with my examination admit card, but I do have the right to share my thoughts about a cause.. I have the right to talk about things which are not just about ‘YOU’ and ‘ME’! It is about the nation, about billions of homeless, jobless, foodless and cloth less people on the streets. If you think Congress has made the Metro and developed Delhi, you are mistaken my friend. Of course, congress has made considerable change in the state, but do you ever think of those people who are still not aware of what a Metro train looks like? Or someone who doesn’t even know what the Metro is?
I am ashamed that I did not bother myself to take the pain and get my card on time, but people… you have the power! Don’t do what your family or friends are doing blindly!
I discussed it with my friends because I know the one with POWER can bring a lot of change. Powerless like me can transfer our messages to you, the rest is in your hands of course!
THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE!
