Recent incidents taking place in the state of Punjab have truly shocked me, it was more for me because I could never believe at first how things have deteriorated in the country from bad to worse. Especially after listening to all long claims made all over the media about how the nation is developing, India Shining , How we are getting more educated , How this or that BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH…
What amazes me more is the way people have started to live , as long as nothing is happening to them or their families , or as long as nothing is happening that is affecting them personally then EVERYTHING IS FINE.
Just a few days back a 13 year old girl is molested in a BUS, and then she and her Mother are thrown out of the moving bus resulting in the little Girl Dead- MURDERED and the mother getting hurt ASSAULTED (in UK terms i will say GRIEVOUS BODY HARM)
I have been keenly following this episode and reading the tamasha that is going on, the political parties , leaders , officials are all trying to get some mileage at the cost of 13 years old’s LIFE. I mean they are even arguing over the amount of compensation offered, I read the following in one of the newspapers
“Members of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) comprising farmer unions, labour unions, the Left parties and the Punjab Student Union sparred with AAP activists over the compensation amount.
The JAC said it was satisfied with Rs 20-lakh offer and a guaranteed job for the girl’s father and was ready for the compromise to end the stalemate over ceramtion of the body. The JAC said a compromise was almost reached between government representatives – district magistrate PS Gill, DIG Amar Singh Chahal, SSP Jatinder Khaira and SDM Surinder Kaur – and its activists. However, the girl’s father was taken to a corner by some AAP members who later returned to announce that no compromise has been reached, claimed JAC.”
What sort of people are these I wonder, How can someone say oh this much is OK, or NOT OK, how can someone put a price on a fellow human being and that too murdered, Instead of arguing over money Shud they not be more worried about , HANGING the criminals Getting the culprits. Making sure such incidents don’t happen again. Taking money or whatever compensation is up-to the Family of the girl, their own personal and private affair, WHAT has it got to with all these political parties.
What is worst is this has now become a Political Tamasha as the opposition’s have found a shoulder to put their guns on and FIRE a salvo at the punjab government, I know the current GOVT is probably the WORST ever to come to power but then who is to be blamed for that THE PEOPLE who voted for them. When the same opposition was in power they did nothing themselves , so what right do they have using this episode.
A similar thing happened a few years ago in Guwahati there was so much shouting and what not by all the political parties, but what has happened I doubt if anyone even remembers what happened then. We are such people, episodes happen we shout and shout , in a few weeks something else happens and we move on to that episode, That is WHO WE ARE, I dont have any shame in accepting this, Maybe I am also part of the same group of people, So it is US the people who are to be blamed for all that is happening.
This is what we are, more than the molesters, the number of people watching is more..so who is a bigger CRIMINAL, the one doing the act or the ones standing there enjoying the Show…..
It takes a loud voice to make the deaf hear, with these immortal words uttered on a similar occasion by Valiant, a French anarchist martyr, do we strongly justify this action of ours. This is how the above notice was put all over the nation in those days of the british RAJ.. signed by Balraj Commander-in-Chief (Balraj was the pseudonym of Chandra Shekhar Azaad , The commander-in-chief of the Hindustan Socialist Republican Association (army))
I am sorry to say we are more worried about the black money and Lot of STUPID PROBLEMS or other things BUT When and WHO will fight for the basic things.
Where are the Baba Ramdev’s , The Gandhians, The Anna hazaare.. What is more important to fight or have these rally’s to bring back the black money or make sure such incidents don’t take place and if they do take place then the culprits ARE CAUGHT not in half hour , not in 24 hours BUT AT THE EARLIEST, What is more important, SHOULD the police not be brought to the DOCKS , they are paid to protect us, WHY are the culprits not arrested ALL OF THEM..
Why is Not a single police officer sacked.
Ladies and gentleman it is time to get together and stand together and make a NOISE .. A NOISE THAT will make the DEAF hear for believe it or not , OUR SOCIETY, US, our leaders , our office bearers are no other than DEAF.. they don’t hear anything Till a loud noise is made ..
“I Dont want your tears , I don’t want your pity, I want your ANGER about this system, Given your anger CHANGE WILL COME, Unless there is anger how can everything change ” ?
I say that too, MAKE THAT NOISE , WAKE THE DEAF.
hathyar hi sute haje chalaune nahin aseen bhule
raflaan diyan nalaan de rakhe ne muh haje tak khule
(We might have thrown our WEAPONS (hathyaar).. But we have not forgotten how to use(chalauna) them, We have kept the mouth of our RIFLES (raflaan) open, Where do these THUGS go after winning the elections)
I leave you with a question (hope you have reached here reading this post) Having a STONE in hand , Who are we going to hit it with ? The molester OR THAT person who stood there watching the whole SHOW.
I will prefer to use my gun and shoot that who stood and watched the SHOW.. because that person is more of a culprit , I know the molester , I can see his face , but these who hide behind doing nothing are the WORST LOT.. they are the reason our nation is where it is now, they will be the next one to become molesters, rapists.. … WE are the culprits..
