Money money everywhere..not a penny clean

In spite of the high growth rate in India, the report stated that India would continue to remain a low-income country for decades to come but could be a "motor for the world economy" if it fulfills its growth potential – Goldman Sachs 2007.

With corruption so rampant in almost every department of the governance, I guess that is where we are heading to. One Scam, after another, has clouded the Nation, yet the Government is only watching with no remorse from the comforts of their power seats, while the common man is left lurching for his basic needs. India as a Nation has done exceedingly well in the last decade, the growth is evident, along with this growth in Economy; the room for exploitation has also increased. Lenient laws, flexible policies, weak political structure and lack of accountability have paved way for social evils to take shape.

It is really disappointing to see the unwillingness of the Government to take action on the alleged members. It is understandable that Indian Governance is huge and it moves slowly, but lethargy can’t be tolerated. Indian citizen is no more naïve people, along with the Nation’s growth, the individuals have risen; He understands the nuances of governance or at least has the willingness to understand. Does the Government think they can get away with what they do? The men behind the corruption may not be punished (continue enjoy the luxuries earned), law suites may still be pending, and another Government will come into position but what will happen to the Country, Her growth and the people? Plundering the nation of its richness, looting the population of its righteousness, will only weaken the existing delicate system. It is now the right time to restructure, and do away with existing mess and build a stronger Nation where not just the looters can enjoy luxury but every citizen will be entitled to comfort.

What can WE do as a citizen of the country? How can we change the attitude of our politicians and Business honchos?

Share your thoughts!

More to come..

Divya.. First of all Appreciation for this thought and the question bowed towards the public as "What can WE do as a citizen of the country?"
Here i would like to share very few ideas.
1. The first and foremost thing is we are least bothered/very busy(doing nothing) to poll our votes.

2. We are bidding ourselves just for 500/700 bugs in election (even 75% of educated people)

3. Even after having knowledge about NO-VOTE option, we are not ready to use it.

4. When we come to know about Political nuances, all we do is TALK, TALK, TALK and finally when next IPL commences we become very busy with the match.....

I can point out some other too.. but i would like to keep this as Comment and not as another blog :-)
Divya, Hope you will get some more WE DO's as a citizen
