Everyone says that we should proud to be Indians, but I doubt why? I mean, of course we love our country and its people, but not wolves. Yeah right! I am talking about those wolves who are now feeding their own family and themselves by eating common man's flesh. Have you got it? Yes! I am talking about politicians- the most corrupt community in India.
WE USUALLY say it’s our country and citizens should be proud of it. I will ask why. At one point, they mention that we all have right to speak, right to express, right to educate, right to live and the list goes on. Another point is that when people try to execute all their rights, they either get arrested by the police or get involved in controversies.
We all know about Anna Hazare
and his protest. No doubt, for days he fought against corruption for the sake of Indians. Many of us have seen people using their names for products as well. In Delhi, there is a market that is named as ‘Anna Hazare Market’. Firstly, it was Anna Hazare and then Baba Ramdev
and now Aseem Trivedi who recently was arrested by police due to a cartoon made by him. As a citizen of India, I must say, hats off to his creation that he dedicated to today’s politicians.
We heard about 2G scam, coal mine scams, black money or Swiss bank news about Indian accounts having deposits in billions and government still expects that we should not say a word against it. Why? Have they forgotten that our constitution is about ‘to the people, for the people and by the people?’ If Trivedi wants to express his views and shows the reality to people by making them aware about the things, then why the government is having a problem? Is the government afraid of people or it thinks that by doing this, people will get afraid of it? In police stations, there is a quote – ‘Satyamev jayate’ written on the wall, but now after this incident; we can suggest people to turn it into ‘Bhrashtmev Jayate.’
Government again proved that it’s their country and they will run it as they want to. The strategy is simple - make rich richer and poor poorer and in the corrupt country, no one can think of developing nation. “Aaj ek Trivedi giraftaar hua hai… Kal lakhon honge…” Still we are living our life and believe that everything will be fine. How? By shutting the mouth against wrong deeds or by watching news over television sets? It’s our life, our country, our India and I think we need to learn again how to fight for our rights.
