Recently i was browsing some pictures sent in by readers on a certain blog i like to visit.
“Have you ever been to India? If you’ve been, except for the state of Goa that I would consider as real India, you’ll agree with me that the country is crowded, loud, dirty, and full of cows roaming in the streets.
This got me thinking ? why do people have this outlook about INDIA ? What is wrong with this Country.
Im sure this country was founded on great principles and ideas and was destined to achieve greatness. Then what exactly went wrong?
I’ll tell you what went wrong. The people of this country are what are the problem, never have I seen such apathy and carelessness towards ones own environment and government and law.
Every morning I open the newspapers and without fail I always seem to find news of graft / cheating / apathy / carelessness, displayed by a varying group of people, from the common man to cops, from bureaucrats to politicians.
How can people be so useless and careless? Cops just want to make money, by any means possible, they will enforce rules of Public Indecency, even if you hug your Girlfriend on the road, but these same cops are HELPLESS or CARELESS to bother to catch Eve teasers and rapists.
Rapes are a common occurence in the nations capital New Delhi, and recently even Kolkotta. 2 rapes in a fornight in Kolkotta, What are the cops doing?
Who is to blame for this ? Obviously the BMC, they have gone so corrupt that they dont care about the citizens anymore. The Bureaucracy has conveniently forgotten who it is that pays their SALARY. Its my tax money and I demand better service.
Garbage collection is irregular, Water supply is irregular, traffic Jams are everywhere, traffic signals don’t work. The list is endless ..
Constructions which are normally completed in a year, in India they take 4-5 years to complete. And throughout this time citizens have to deal with DUST / DIRT / Road blocks / Noise. How will the nation progress at this rate? Every bureaucrat is corrupted, lazy and UTTERLY TOTALLY USELESS.
Every 3 -4 months roads are DUG UP. First to service electric cables, then to service telephone cables, then to service sewers, each time the work goes on for months on end and the roads repaved, then dug up again. Utterly Unprofessional.
Why do we deserve this? Its because as Indians we have adapted, We have learnt to just forget. We have learned to avoid it, shun it from our minds, because we see no other way out. In a country reuled by religion and politics, where is the scope for development, where is the scope for change?
The people of this country are so blinded by religion and politics, they fail to understand the need to progress, the need to elect deserving candidate who can lead us on the path to greatness. Instead we have assholes on the podium, criminals, rapist, murderers, corrupt bureaucrats, religious extremists, who can do nothing better than to LEACH the COUNTRY DRY !!
The police force is made up just for the rich and powerful, there is no scope for the common man to approach the cops for help. There will be no help forthcoming unless you are rich and famous or have political contacts. Take for example a few days back A woman went to the police station to complain about molestation but in turn by insulted and humiliated by the Officer in charge, But actor SAIF ALI KHAN was arrested and let go on bail within an hour that too in the dead of the night.
I was in a car accident some years back, and approached the police to file a compaint. The cops didnt even bother to come arrest the taxi driver, but instead told me to back off, coz I am educated and from a good family and I dont want to get involved in police bureaucracy, It didn’t help that when the taxi driver was summoned to the station ( I went personally to inform him) he was accompanied by the Ward head of a certain Regional political party.
There was corruption in the purchase of equipment for the local police force, which led to countless deaths during a terrorist attack. How could the Government be so corrupt that it even ill-equips its own police force .. What a bunch of FOOLS. Correct me if I am wrong but isnt it these same cops who provide security for the Politicians?
I could go on forever and ever… but I dont wanna spoil my evening … Its useless to hope for change, The country is gone to the DOGS.
