India is a secular country. We know our forefathers fought for our freedom and thereby, had restored peace and order in the soil by going to the extent of giving up their lives. Blood boils to see religion being used as an advantage by political parties. We commoners believe people from all other religions are our families too. Do the various political parties understand politics is not a game about human lives? Do they even get it, we are not daft? We may be helpless in our current situation trying to manage our lives on this soil in what is supposedly to be a glorious developed modern India soon. Things are getting expensive with every passing second and poor are becoming poorer. Starving homeless people are swelling on the roadsides. All in all, the picture is most Indians are facing starvation every day.
Politics must be politics if the politicians show their purpose of serving the country. They will get our votes naturally. Listen to us!
