575th BLOG POST -->>
I and my father always discuss about Indian politics, economy, inflation, corruption, terrorism and all those trending topics we get to read in newspaper almost every day. Last week, when he came home to meet me, he started discussing about Anna Hazare-Baba Ramdev Milan. :-) I tried to avoid the topic but my father who admires Anna Hazare wants me to speak good about this blackmailer. So, after trying a lot, when he didn't got any wonderful words from my side for his favorite revolutionist of today's era, he asked if I'm with the Corruption that is going on in our country. He kept blaming all those ministers who are into this job of eating our money and depositing it in their personal banks or hiding it at the place where none of us have an access. He started blaming all the potholed roads, trembling bridges, bribes in every governmental work etc etc etc. I didn't stated a single debating point until he blasted all he had in his heart for our country which is being blamed by its own citizens for being over-corrupted. :-)
When he finished, he asked if I had some points regarding to what he said and what he feels his nation to be like. I asked my father if he had ever been at the place where he got a chance to lead more than 1000 people in his life. He said "No". Then, I asked him, if he ever enjoyed sitting at a position which made him Powerful and he had lots of power. He replied "No". I threw certain questions at him and the only answer I got from his side was NO. Actually, I knew that the answers of all those questions are NO hence I asked them to win that so-called debate which was at a very small scale. :-) And then I stated some of my points which I would like to discuss with all of you on my blog (which made him think of it).
When we start going to school, our parents keep feeding our mind with a single thought or aim: To earn lots of money in life so that we don't have to look at our wallet if there's some money in it or is it empty once again. Throughout our life, we keep meeting similar people who talk about how money is important in life and how it can change our future if we study well today. And after a point of time, even we start thinking about money every time we are alone. And we even talk about it with our friends about what's their idea to earn money once they are eligible to be independent from parents' clutches. And as soon as a typical Indian start earning, he finds his salary too less to enjoy anything. For a moment, he even try to start a business or do something which can help him earn extra money than what he earns in his organization.
So, when we, Indians are so obsessed with money, does these ministers come in some other section of people? They are human and they have grown up in the same environment. When a person gets POWER suddenly, he starts enjoying it. So, he troubles people to show his superiority over the commoners. And tell me, if you get an access to 1000 Crore rupees for benefiting the people of your society, will you spend all to uplift their position in society? You will certainly think of developing your personal life before their. Because, right from your childhood age, you have been dreaming of having luxuries and all the pleasures of life. So as soon as you get this unbelievable amount of money, you will obviously think of buying 2-3 flats in India, build a farm house in any of the famous hill-station and save some other crores in your secret bank account so that the future generation of your family gets secured. And whatever would be left, you will try to spend it on the society and citizens. So, that's what these ministers do.
Who cares about the pot holes in the roads, open gutters, no electricity, no parking and several other facilities when you have unlimited access of money? Any thing that one will think is to raise his standard of living. And, even when you set all that you needed throughout your life, you want more so that even if something arises in future, you can be confident enough to pay any amount of money. Even if I'll get an access to even 1 Crore rupee, I will try to purchase a flat in Mumbai so that I and my children (that is my future) will get secure. Or I would like to fix it in the bank so that I get the interest of 50,000 per month i.e. very enough to survive in India without doing any job. So, these ministers are doing the same. We aren't liking it because we are not getting a single penny of it. If a minister would give you an offer of accepting 1 crore from him and keep quiet rather than raising the voice against corruption, you will not even give the second thought to it. You will accept it with a very broad smile. Because you know that 1 crore can make you buy anything that was in your mind till the moment you had 1 crore in your hand. We are also hating Corruption because it is being done by the money of our effort. We are also in angst because we aren't getting a single commendable facility from government. But, just imagine- unlimited access of money for you, and no one to ask what you have done with it, would you have thought of nation over your personal benefits? So, these ministers are not any alien to think of you with those Crores in their pocket without thinking of themselves, their family, relatives and friends.
My smile is very broader after writing this. Do think upon this. And then you will start seeing yourself in every Corrupted Minister. :-) Hahaha.
ABHILASH RUHELA - VEERU telling how Ministers are correct as we would have done the same if we had that opportunity. :-)
