“India is going to the Dogs”
This is the thought that comes to my mind when I see India in a state of turmoil.
How does one overcomes bad governance if the only choice you have is between a dead sea and ocean. This very well depicts the scenario of Indian politics. Gone are the days when we had ‘real’ leaders who stood for the cause of the people and felt it was their responsibility to do so.
Today the scene at the Indian politics is an indifferent one. Every political party seems to have their own hidden agendas. Citizen’s needs are not a priority any more. The two major parties, the Congress and the BJP are branched out from the same stem fooling the people with different ideologies.
If you have been trailing the US elections, one could say that how much awareness is there among the US citizens about the policies that is followed by the candidates. No wonder that Joe the plumber was able to raise question on how the policies would impact him should they be in office. The same does not hold true for the Indian politics.
The voters in India have hardly any knowledge about the political party’s agenda and how their policies is going to make India move forward. I bet you are as clueless as I am.
The citizen’s rights are been rampantly violated without any stern action taken against the guilty. Be it the violence in Orissa, churches been damaged in Kerala or attacks on North Indians in Mumbai. What have our so called ‘representatives’ done to send out a strong message and stop such acts in the future?
Innocent people are being killed and many lose their faith in the judicial system during these times. It is through this fire that people are born to take revenge, an eye for an eye whom we all brand as ‘terrorists’. Who is responsible for creating them?
The country has been burning everywhere in the recent times. This surely shows India in a pathetic state where there is no political will to overcome this crisis. India is indeed going to the dogs.
