It's time for India to expect from the new government!
Well, India has been in the limelight for quite a few months owing to the radical changes this country was going through. There have been a few violent and protest filled changes of the ruling governments in a few countries across the globe. But the strength of a democratic pattern prevalent in India and the smooth taking over by the newly elected government has mesmerised the world.

In fact, there was a myth that India is divided on the basis of many sects, religions and communities etc. But this has been broken very successfully. The ideology and crystal clear vision - especially of the youth of this country - has displayed a very mature and sensible approach adopted by them. The best and the most admirable fact remains as expected - development is the key issue for all the voters of this great nation.

The spirit to participate in this mission called general elections prevailed all over, irrespective of the cultural, political, social values one follows. This became a noble mission with the hope of a better tomorrow. It is really amazing to see that in the different states, where the local governments were functioning on different political ideology, the voters got united and chose national issues instead of local matters.

The wave across the country unified the mentality of the voters who did not hesitate to form a government with a clear majority. They did so by sidelining the vague clarifications and promises aired by the others. This has raised high hopes that the now the common man cannot be taken for granted and can’t be misguided through false promises and hypothetical slogans.

Now the expectations and desires of the voters have also risen very high. During the last couple of years, a trend of public protests emerged. Due to the instant response from public and the media, this became a very common feature, especially in the big metropolitan cities. The shameful Nirbhaya incident had a tremendous effect which shook up the middle class. Many steps to ensure the safety of women were initiated.

On the other hand, using the tactic of protesting everyday on petty issues like diversion of a road or naming of an over bridge will dilute its sanctity. But certainly, the common man is much more aware of his rights now. Non-availability of water and power is equally important and such issues can be sorted out within a couple of days or weeks - but to sort out issues like increasing unemployment, the process will take its own time.

Many of us have noticed that people tend to club such issues and want instant results. As per the updates being published in media, the new government seems well aware of this very fact and a few steps taken by them are already visible. Let us give a little more time to them to formulate the action plan, assess the ground reality, analyze the resources available and facilitate the best possible move.

Indians are normally known to have a tremendous level of patience. Therefore it would be a fair deal if we adopt a wait and watch policy, for the sake of “good days” for one and all. I am a firm believer and the initiatives taken by them deserve to be respected.
