Today (5th April, 2011) I came to know about, civil society’s battle against corruption which acquired its sharpest edge ever on Tuesday as veteran social activist Anna Hazare began a fast unto death at the capital’s landmark Jantar Mantar demanding greater public role in the Anti-Corruption Bill (Lokpal Bill.pdf), which has been considered and put aside by successive regimes for the last 42 years. Every day we listen about the scam, corruption and how people hide their black money in Swiss bank. Time has come for all Indian (mainly for youths in India) to think on these matters deeply. Although I have full respect for this initiation, but before supporting them (Anna Hazare & Co.), as an Indian many questions comes to mind. Are they really opposing Corruption?? Do they really want to work for our country or are they doing it for publicity??? The reason why this question comes to my mind is that I am frustrated believing our political leaders. Are they proceeding with a proper planned manifesto, which should be implemented if they win?? What will be their next plan, if it will be successful on their first demand (Anti-Corruption Bill)??? It should be confirmed that no exterior organization is involved in it. As a youngster, we should not be influenced by other’s words without knowing the diplomatic reasons of it.
Don’t forget, what happened at Iraq, Libya & Egypt. Local protesters raised their voice against their leaders without their proper manifestos. This resulted in civil war in these countries which gave an opportunity to third parties like western countries (a combined force of troops from the United States, the United Kingdom etc) to intervene in the local war, and declaring to the world that this is for welfare of Iraqis and to free Egypt from Gaddaffi. But their original motive was to capture the crude oil from these countries to strengthen their economy which is suffering from recession. They need new resources to revive their economy. Everyone knows this very well.
India is so groomed in all the areas of the world market that most of the developed countries bow down. So even a little mistake in manifesto, gives an opportunity for other countries like Pakistan, China, and USA etc. At least we are happy that our country is unlike Burma where many leaders & well wishers are put under house arrest within own country although it’s a independent country. So my dear friends, India’s scams & corruptions have already stopped our breathing. So don’t flow on the wave blindly. Kindly think twice about our motherland India before supporting/opposing any regime.
Now there is a need of good leader who must be assertive, open-minded and fair. Because I always believe, good manifesto can be created by discussions. Also if you have some idea, of not only stopping corruption & scam but also of developing our country, please share with your friends. Sure you will get idea of how to execute the same. So friends, time has come for us to do something for our country. With this I am sharing my little note with you all to strengthen our bond in well manner. It’s your wish to realize and pass it to your friends or make it spam. Thank you. Jai Hind… 🙂
