It is known to all of us that we Indians have complains with almost everything. If Sachin returns pavilion early we complain, if he smashes a century but India lost the match then also we complain that he is selfish. Same is the case with the government. We curse our governments for every wrong things in our life. Either it is corruption, price-rise, when tax increases, potholes, cleanliness, and for not getting job. Although we have all the right to complain and keep the government accountable for every incidence and policy. However, the question here is that do we really care our society and nation that much what we show? If yes, what part we are playing in the nation building and solving the societal problems? If so what is its outcome?
Undoubtedly there are people who really care about the society they live in, they are really working hard to ensure that everything remains fine in their society. Same is the case with a nation. Also every individual is somehow contributing in nation building. But, if we require a faster pace of solving the problems our society is facing today we need to enhance our efforts.
We are a democratic country and so we demand all our rights. We demand for better governance, effective public service mechanism, and much more. We also know that some problems can only be solved locally. A government being run from the capital would not be able to solve your local problem as much effectively as a local institution from there can. That’s is why we have a system of panchayat raj in rural areas and municipality in urban areas. We need to be active in electing our local wards and keep him accountable for his duties. We can arrange some mohalla sabhas, teach some poor students, feed some Hungary people, and can organise community service teams to look after problems and issues around us. There are many more ways to fix things through community participation. But, who cares! Even if someone cares for this, he/she don’t have time to do all these things. He has time to troll politicians and journalists on Twitter for their foolish remarks, listen their political speeches and debates, and has all the time to gossip about the prevailing corruption in the system. It’s like that we are made only to be ruled where the ruler is blamed for every wrongs happenings around us. The irony is that we call ourshelves democratic where people has the ultimate power, that is, they are the rulers as well as the ruled ones. But the very same people is complaining about having no power and authority to fix even local issues. Whom we are complaining to? To the very same people we are blaming to be corrupt and have no intension to public service…………….
