We the People
India-Classified as a developing country..Developing?? but why?? why not Developed? Its been more than 50 years since our Independence..Then why is the Country still developing??Even we have big,tall and shiny buildings..we have the best medical facilities..malls..sport complex..we have everything..but then why? what could be the reason? could it be us? we the people!? well ill tell you bout a little experience that i had recently.. I was traveling by train..it was a long journey so i had ordered food..and when it comes to food, i go crazy..i ordered almost everything on the list only to realize that i cant finish it all.. I dint want to waste food.. We all would have seen those poor little kids who come and clean the train in a hope of earning some money.. so One of those kids entered my compartment..so i thought i can give away the food pack to him..I was placed in the upper birth..I called out for him..but he dint listen..so I asked the people sitting on the lower birth to call him.. and i saw something that shocked me.. literally shocked.. The lady below was about to tap him on his back and ask him to look up..when she stopped..stopped.. took a slipper and tapped him with that.. she dint want to touch him.. how sad is that? Did i just witness untouchability?? Its our mindset people.. if as a person we cant develop then how can we expect our country to develop??We have to change.. we cant sit around and blame the politicians for everything..that's the cowards way out.. we can sit and play the blame game or actually step up and do something.. the choice is ours, cause till then the country is only developing..
