My Incredible India
INDIA. My incredible india-A country which is the largest democracy in world Which is known for its diversification of cultures and religions, a country where people speak more than 1000 languages and dialects and who support more than 20 political parties in the world's biggest democracy and perhaps boldest experiment in democracy? Where secularism, inequality, integrity are the soul of constitution,. But wait..... Is this all true? Is our India really incredible? Are we secular and equal?..........just think over it.............. I think there's no need to find answers of these questions anywhere just ask from your heart and you will get a pure answer "NO" Far from becoming mahaan(great) our nation is going to dogs,and unless a miracle saves us,the country will break up. Have you ever thought, what is happening in our country? Attacks like 26/11, Dantewada Attack, daily news of killing of innocent people, Tensions in borders. Threatening from international terrorist organizations. And the most pernicious one, home based terror by Naxalites? I am writing all this because I a m in anger and really depressed on how people are just being killed,,,,,,,,,and our Govt is behaving as spectators rather than taking actions they are debating in media,,,,,,,,,, "This is my homeland, I can't let these miscreants get away with their sinful ideas. I will shout my protest from the roof-tops" We are living in a nation where government is run by selfish people. for them politics is a profession not a mission, they just for some votes ruining everyone's life, The biggest challenge to our democracy is religious fanaticism. we Indians have always been more concerned about religion, caste and still we are religious fanaticism, we judge people by their caste and religions which is not only dangerous for mankind but a stigma to our democracy..... The Indian constitution prohibits discrimination on the grounds only of religion race, caste, sex and place of birth [4by providing equality of opportunity for all citizens, and inequality on caste, job, money should be prohibited,,,,,,,,, The question I am asking is Are we really following what has been written in our constitution? Is there equality of opportunity to all Indians? Are we Indians not facing discrimination on the basis of religion, race, Caste and sex? How can someone point out foreigners for racial discrimination when in our own country we do that.......recent Australian attack were an example, I truly condemn those attacks but just think how can we point out them when we know the reality that in our own country people are being discriminated not only by general people but by our law makers, leaders i.e. our politicians too. Instead of uniting this diversified India they are creating more tensions by religion, caste and region based politics.... And poor people are being, manipulated for their selfish desired growths. they are told that nobody cares for them, centre parties are neglecting their region, certain religious groups wants to dismantle their religious places etc,,,,, and these propaganda's for selfish votes and growth proved very successful for these miscreants of democracy,they targeted unemployed youth and poor by playing with their sentiments and emotions. The constitution contains special clauses "for the advancement of any socially and educationally backward classes of citizens or for the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes". Separate constituencies allocated to Scheduled Castes and Tribes to ensure their political representation for 10 years.(These were subsequently extended for every 10 years through constitutional amendments). Don't u ever think that by exceeding these reservations our politicians are proliferating this inequality? Reservation on caste basis is totally unbearable and unjustified....I know that in the early years lower caste people were not treated well and they were lacking but not now, we are celebrating 62nd year of our independence, we proudly say that we are developing as a developed nation, but are we really developing?,,,we claim that we are modern, a hi -fi society with top leaders, businessman and that's somewhere true too....we are as compared to early times are much developed but sorry to say we are not at developed by our thinking? We are still living in that cruel, caste obsessed, society in our mind, we have accepted those modern clothes but not good moral values of modernization. Now comes our claim to be secular.......our politicians proudly say that we are very secular but are they really one? There were many incidents when India gone through communalist attacks,the most disastrous one was,Babri Demolition on 6th dec,1992, Sikh riots 1984 then Gujrat riots 2002., thousands of innocent people were slaughtered and killed, women's were raped a, children set on fire,,,,,,,,,,,I just ponder that how long people of this country will have to bear this? Can't we live happily? Indian is day by day becoming a battleground of religions and caste. And instead of preventing this region and religion based genocide, Govt is just watching it as Tamasbeens(spectators).and even proliferating it by not giving punishment to these culprits. Today, riots take place b/w Hindu, Muslim, Sikhs and Christians.caste-Hindus and Harijans, Tribals and non Tribals,Bengalese and Assamese.in short the entire country is becoming riot prone......are these riots show our integration and secularism.? Most of us have double standards of judgment,we are unable to see the shortcomings of our own religions but more than eager to see the fatuous in other people faiths. When I see the stark reality, it just fill me with anger, what strike one in the eye is the impoverishment of the people, which saps their vitality and keeps them undernourished and susceptible to sickness. India is the world's most illiterate country. The most populus of our states are the most illiterate to accelerate on the information superhighway with nearly 200 million adults who cannot read signs. 80% of women in these states (UP,BIHAR, RAJASTHAN AND MP) cannot read or write and acc to WHO report points that 80% of Indian women suffer from anemia. Acc to world bank,65% of India's under five year olds are malnourished, of 23 million children born every year only 3 million grow up to be physically fit, productive and intellectually capable. These nightmarish realities should wake up from stupor and indulge in some introspection. What is wrong with us? Where have things gone wrong? What have to we got to do it? We have to find answers and have to work for our India to be really developed not only in files but in reality. I know our country has all those qualities and strength which makes India incredible, but we have to overcome these nightmarish realities.............. Just remember that We can remove, communalism and can really make our nation secular and equal if Once we see the villain in ourselves, I am sure we will take the first step towards securing our future,,,,,, We cannot wish communalism away, we cannot pretend communal differences are seen only during riots and don't exist otherwise, they always have and they will in the future. so, we must all, Hindus, Muslims and Christians,Sikh,somehow overcome over stereotyped notions of communities other than our own.. We must respect everyone's religion and should live happily and we can do this only when we work for this I think we must avoid the tendency to build community based housing societies, schools and clubs, use of media for propagating religion must stop. We should unequivocally embrace the idea of secularism as defined in our constitution and kick out any govt that is even remotely communal. For me "India is my caste, my region, religion and identity" and I wish every Indian should have the same,,,,,,,we our Indians first,,,,,,,,plz do remember...its nation which makes our identity not our region and religion, nationalism is above than communalism...........in the end I will just wanted to say that " Good life is the only religion,happiness is the only good, the place to be happy is here; the time to be happy is now, the way to be happy is to help others." . "So many gods,so many creeds. So many paths that wind and wind When just the art of being kind is all that the sad world needs" Come on Young India join Young India Association.
