Hey, so I'm back from all the holidaying on to my writing desk again which I also call as my thinking desk. I must tell you that since morning I had been living in my oblivious life but I just got enlightened about the events in my country in the evening.
I cannot tell you the pain and shame I felt after hearing about the falling of the bridge at the Jawahar Lal Nehru stadium. Also, what added to my misery were the comments passed on by the CWG committee regarding the hygiene issue and the recklessness in the fall of the bridge. I also heard a comment which said it was not a big deal. How is it that it is not a big deal? Had one of the children of this guy been on this bridge, would he have said the same thing. Also, another blow was a young Kashmiri gentlemen describing the country as a body and Kashmir as one of the body parts which has been treated like a vestigial organ. It was baffling.
I also read the stray comments on Facebook talking about how people think that the CWG should fail. Are you guys serious? In a country of a billion, where intelligence and hard work is of no dearth, do you guys think that these remarks are of no significance. Has your intellect surpassed your EQ? Do you think about the hard work put in not by the government but by the laborers? Do you think about the miserable people who died because of dengue and not those of you whose family survived it? Do you think about your money, the money which had been taken from you by the government in taxes to make those roads and put up the infrastructure?
Do you even think about yourselves as Indian then or forget that even as human beings?
Where has the 1 billion population disappeared? Why is their no one who can get up and pick up the boulders? Why is there no one to lift this burden of shame? Where is the consciousness ? I'm guilty of it as much as you are. But you know what..I will not comment. I think we deserve this and much worse.
Unless every individual in our country doesn't rise up and see this as I do..we shall all share the burden. Try running away from it as much as you want today. But I'll tell you what it'll travel with you even in your sleep and may be till death. Its a shame we stood their and watched and did nothing. Its a rape of your own country by you. Share the shame and burn in it.
Think about it..and if any one of you has the courage which may be even I don't..then do something..don't just talk..everyone is talking anyway..
