TO

THE  PEOPLE  OF  INDIA

 

BRUTAL RAPE AND MURDER OF A GIRL WHO COULD HAVE BEEN MY SISTER, SUICIDE OF A SCHOOL TEACHER WHO DID’NT GET HIS RETIREMENT DUES IN TIME WHO COULD HAVE BEEN MY FATHER , UNDUE HARRASMENT AND ARREST OF A MAN WHO RAISED A VALID QUESTION WHO COULD HAVE BEEN MY BROTHER, CALLING A RAPE VICTIM  AND A MOTHER OF TWO KIDS – A SEX WORKER WHO COULD HAVE BEEN MY WIFE, DRENCHING DELHI BRUTAL GANG RAPE PROTESTERS WITH WATER CANONS IN 7 DEGREE CELSIOUS COLD WHO COULD HAVE BEEN MY FRIENDS, ……….. ALL THESE AND MORE GRAVE OFFENCES ALL OVER MY COUNTRY, MAKES ME CONCERNED  AND DEPRESSED. I BLAME MYSELF , I BLAME YOU, I BLAME ALL THE PEOPLE OF INDIA FOR ALL THESE . YES  WE THE COMMON MEN AND WOMEN , ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COUNTRY WIDE CORRUPTION, RAPE, MURDER, INSENSITIVE POLITICIANS AND INDIFFERENT EXECUTORS OF LAW AND ORDER !

 

WE FORGET THAT A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT SERVES THE PEOPLE. FROM THE LOWEST TO THE HIGHEST AUTHORITY IN THAT GOVERNMENT ARE PUBLIC SERVANTS.  IF THE GOVERNMENT DOES SOMETHING WRONG, WE THE PUBLIC EXPECT THE GOVRNMENT TO RECTIFY THE ERROR WHILE WE WILL REMAIN AS SILENT OBSERVERS , GOING ON WITH OUR EVERY DAY WORKS. OUR INVOLVEMENT IS JUST CONFINED TO EXERCISING OUR VOTING RIGHTS.

SO BE IT!  NOW, REMAINING WITHIN OUR CHOSEN PARAMETERS HOW CAN WE THE COMMONERS CHANGE INDIA?  WE DON’T HAVE TO JOIN ANY POLITICAL PARTY OR N.G.O,  NO NEED TO DEMONSTRATE ON THE ROAD OR GO FOR SIGNATURE CAMPAIGNS. IN AUTOCRACY A MASSIVE PUBLIC  UNREST CAN TOPPLE THE AUTOCRAT, BUT IN DEMOCRACY  IT IS NOT THAT SIMPLE. PLEASE DO KEEP IN MIND THAT I AM NOT TARGETING THE RULING PARTY/ OPPOSITION/ GOVERNMENT. I AM ADDRESSING THE FAULTY NATURE THAT WE THE COMMON PEOPLE OF INDIA HAVE !

THE WAY OUT IS VERY SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE AND ABSOLUTELY NON VIOLENT! 

THE SOLUTION IS TO   “REMEMBER” .

GIVE OUT THE MESSAGE THAT  ” WE WILL REMEMBER THE INJUSTICE DONE TILL IT IS TIME TO PRACTISE OUR VOTING RIGHTS ! “. 

 

DELHI BRUTAL GANG RAPE IS NOT THE FIRST RAPE THAT THIS NATION HAS WITNESSED. RAPE OF BLIND WOMAN, RAPE OF 2 TO 80 YEARS OLD , RAPE OF HOMELESS, RAPE OF DISABLED , ALL THESE INHUMAN ACTS HAVE BEEN A PART OF THIS COUNTRY. WE ALL KNOW, WE HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY VOCAL ABOUT THESE, WE CRITICISED THE THEN GOVERNMENT AND FINALLY WE FORGOT ABOUT IT. WHEN REMINDED OF PAST EVENTS, WE RECOLLECT BUT THAT IS NOT REMEMBERING! 

 

 

REMEMBER DELHI GANG RAPE AND MURDER OF DAMINI FIVE YEARS FROM NOW, WITH THE SAME INTENSITY LIKE YOU DO NOW!

IMAGINE A LEADER STANDING IN FRONT OF A HUGE CROWD DURING A PRE POLL CAMPAIGN. WHILE GIVING HIS SPEECH HE SEES MAJORITY CROWD, COMMON PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME WEARING BADGES – Protesting Rape Badges, Protesting Corruption Badges, Protesting Police Atrocity Badges. THE MESSAGE IS VERY STRONG:  WE REMEMBER AND THAT WILL BE REFLECTED WHEN WE PRACTICE OUR  VOTING RIGHTS!

 

WHEN POLITICIANS ARE CONVINCED , BE IT IN RULING PARTY OR OPPOSITION, THAT PEOPLE WON’T FORGET OUR BLUNDERS, THEY WILL NOT TAKE YOU THE “AAM AADMI”  FOR GRANTED.

 

WE ELECT A GOVERNMENT AND GO TO SLEEP, WAKING UP BEFORE THE NEXT ELECTION. WHEN YOU THE EMPLOYER GO TO SLEEP, WHEN YOU FORGET, SHOULD THE EMPLOYEES BE BLAMED FOR LACK OF PROPER EXECUTION OF DUTIES ?!

 

 

WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE THE WATCH DOG ON HOW THE ELECTED IS PERFORMING AND WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA SHOULD REMEMBER THE FIASCOS. OUR MIND SHOULD BE THE PERFORMANCE REGISTER ON HOW OUR ELECTED MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT AND LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLIES ARE FUNCTIONING. DEMOCRACY IS WONDERFULL IF YOU REMAIN ALERT AND AWARE. DEMOCRACY IS A NIGHTMARE WHEN WE BECOME INDIFFERENT.

 

LIKE FILMS, NEWS ARE ALSO RELEASED. A RAPE OR A MURDER NEWS RELEASED WITH A BANG GETS PUBLIC ATTENTION AND SYMPATHY. WHAT ABOUT EACH AND EVERY RAPE COMMITED IN INDIA IN EVERY 22 MINUTES?  BE SENSITIVE TO EACH AND EVERY INJUSTICE DONE AND DEPEND ON MEDIA FOR NEWS NOT VIEWS AND MELODRAMAS.

 

IF I AM INJURED IN A ROAD ACCIDENT , I DEPEND ON STRANGERS TO TAKE ME TO THE HOSPITAL. NO ONE IS ACTUALLY A STRANGER. WE ARE INDEED A BIG FAMILY. SO TALK WITH THE SENIOR CITIZEN OR THE TEEN AGER YOU SEE EVERY DAY , YOUR FELLOW COMMUTER.

CONNECT WITH PEOPLE, HELP PEOPLE, ARGUE WITH EACH OTHER,PLEASE FOR  INDIA’S SAKE  DONT BE ALOOF AND INDIFFERENT.

 

 I WILL DEPEND ON EACH ONE OF YOU, TO SPREAD OUT THIS MESSAGE. THERE ARE MANY WHO ARE NOT VERY GOOD WITH COMPUTERS , WHO DOES NOT HAVE FACEBOOK OR E MAIL ACCOUNTS, WHO DOES’NT UNDERSTAND ENGLISH. PLEASE REACH OUT AND EXPLAIN THEM WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. ADD ANY OTHER EFFECTIVE AND SIMILAR MEASURES THAT COMES TO YOUR MIND.

 

REMEMBER, WE WANT TO CHANGE INDIA WITHOUT HURTING INDIANS.

 

WISHING ALL MY FELLOW COUNTRYMEN   “A VERY HAPPY NEW TOMORROW”.
