WE - the people

Agreed that the money is in the Swiss banks and we poor Indians need to do something about it even if it is as harmless, as stupid, as toothless, as superficial as forwarding an e-mail...

But the real question which every Indian needs to categorically ask of himself/herself is who is gonna throw the proverbial first stone on the so called culprits..??

who do not pay our taxes honestly..

who steal electricity..

who bribe to get our work done..

who break traffic rules..

who break the laws if no one is watching..

who accept and indulge in corruption as a part of life..

who openly indulge in piracy..

who bend rules to suit our own selfish interests..
who get thirsty of blood in the name of protecting religion n culture

who need no provocation to go to war if its against Pakistan




The politicians whom we term nasty are indeed chosen by us and are indeed one among us - only difference being they get a bigger amount to loot, but looters we all are in some or the other walk of life...

The bureaucrats whom we criticise so often are raised in the same society as we all are and they are just as corrupt as we all are in our day-to-day life...

The industrialists who are filthy rich today by employing dirty business tactics are in fact, our icons. Do we not secretly want to be in their position at some or the other point of life..?

The contractors & the engineers who build our nation so fragile that it is mockery to call it a developing nation anymore, too come from the same rotten society which thinks of satisfying its greed at any cost- come what may...

The lobbyists & the power brokers whom we blame of deceit are no more deceitful than we are in our day-to-day personal and professional lives.

The police is as drunk with the power of uniform as hallucinated we are about our duties as a law abiding citizen.
Are not WE..??

The lawyers that we hate of saving criminals of fame are as justified to do so as we are in trying to find an easy way out to earn our living by rendering the constitution of India as an imaginary thing or  terming it draconian...

The fake currency or the spurious drugs that we so hate to get is as pirated as we ourselves have become with time...

The judges are as partisan as we all are when it comes to making huge profits or saving skins of our kith n kins...

The doctors are as forgetful of the Hippocratic oath to serve as we all are in following work-ethics in our respective duties...

The teachers are as business like in their approach towards educating our children to become a mechanical part of THE SYSTEM as we all are...

The list can go on and on and prove just one point that WE are equally responsible for this state of our country as the governance of past 60 years or so...


Then n only then WE will have the moral, physical & intellectual strength to rightfully question the deeds of others n bring about the envisaged CHANGE.
Till then just bear the fact that MAN IS in deed a BAD CASE and we are no different...

Man is a bad case....isnt it?
