Theres one name on every Indian’s mouth these days. Narendra Modi… For good or bad reasons he is discussed about in every house hold and every news channel on quite a regular basis. He is if you can call it the “obama” of India.
A country where education, population and corruption has always been a problem since independence. Where politicans have been making false promises for the past 60 odd years that they would bring the change that the country and society needs to make India a competitive nation and help the poor live a comfortable life, Narendra modi looks like the only feasible option right now. He talks about the bad state of the Army, the bad state of public sector companies, the bad ecnonomic policies and most importantly about making the relations with our neighbours clear.
Generally Indian politicians have been known not to have a spine. They work on the prinicples of Bureaucracy walking a fine line between the good and the bad. The country understands that it needs a person who has a clear understanding about the right and the wrong. A person who is highly patriotic and one who respects people who are highly patriotic too. Ones who don’t like the country can pack their bags and go somewhere else.
What can the people do to assist the change? Use the single most powerful weapon democracy gives us. VOTE. We must excercise our right to vote with utmost reponsibility. The country is ours and we are responsible for its current and future state of affairs.
Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.
