A few decades ago…the great Jawaharlal Nehru said…’when the world sleeps…India wakes up to her freedom’
I was wondering (see the world time map) which part of the world was sleeping at 12am Indian time? The early birds in the east were awake…Europe and US was awake…i guess Nehru meant
‘now that you are awake…please go back to sleep..my family needs to be paid a billion US $ for every minute I spent in jail…’ so they are having fun.
Not sure when was India’s mood so despondent…with Dr., Kapil, Sonia, PC running the country, and every Indian wanting to support the Jan Lok Pal bill. I am not so optimistic about the bill as I wish I could be. Reforms are needed in the judiciary, police, press, cricket, our own attitude…..it is not funny.
Look at the London riots – a friend just back from Europe says…’this is just the beginning’ . Imagine from the early 1900 you have only seen prosperity. Poverty meant famine in India, Bangladesh…etc. Each generation had a ‘right’ to a good job. Banks looted the world and brought it ‘home’. Government said it was all right to loot the world…then things changed. Last 10 years jobs are flying out. Low end jobs are taken away by the Indians, Bangladeshis….and there is no middle class. Can you believe the health support structure encourages childbirth OUTSIDE marriage. LOL. So when a kid loots, he brings it to an empty room. The parents are elsewhere and oblivious of what the kid is doing. The government destroyed the family. Now the destroyed family is destroying the government.
We need public accountability, and personally I need accountability towards the country. I wish I could do something. Not sure what.
Honestly I feel as a country we are at a low ebb of our mood…..praying for Anna Hazare..but feeling we need much more…much more..NOW from all of us.
