Republic India, Resolved to Retain India in Poverty

January 28, 2012  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Political    Views: 531

India celebrated its sixty third Republic Day recently. The vibrant spirit of Indian Atman is slowly dying in the selfish struggles of the politicians who make the poor still poorer and make the rich exploit the poor. It is sad to note that the power mongers are more particular about filling their own pockets than doing service to the downtrodden.

         

India, the largest democratic country in the world, celebrated her 63rd Republic Day recently. It is sad t to find that even after six decades of democratic rule, the country is unable to wake up from the slumber of ignorance. Unfortunately, she is losing her hold on heritage and culture because of the growing poverty and ignorance.

Two sides of democratic India

There was a time when the western world imagined India as a country of snake charmers and saffron-dressed sages. But today, India to the world is a country of technology and man power. The unimaginable growth of cities with flyovers and malls hide the sight of utter poverty and ignorance of millions. The filthy and wretched condition of poor India is hidden from the sight of the universal world by the selfish politicians, who always aim at grabbing votes from the poor and cheating them with false promises. Villages are deserted because of inhuman living conditions. Villagers are forced to migrate to urban areas in search of basic livelihood.

Human beings wallowing in squalor and ignorance

The naked reality of rural India can shock any human heart. The selfish games of heartless politicians can make any conscience shed tears of blood. These politicians, who are triggered and moved by the narrow-minded monster of castes, are very particular about keeping the masses in poverty and ignorance.

The national committee reports that more than 3.7 million people live below the poverty line in India which makes more than 35 per cent of the world's total illiterate population. UNESCO reports that more than 40 million primary school-age children in India are still kept out of school.
Even if the country has a bumper crop and can export, the hungry people of India do not have the purchasing power to buy the food they need.

Why are villages neglected?

Unhealthy bulging in urban areas can be seen well in the development of the Indian cities. Villages are neglected and villagers migrate to urban areas in search of livelihood. This increases the urban population to unsustainable levels. Politicians are clever to attract votes of the middle class people by such urban development and they are sure to win the villagers for a mean amount of cash or a bottle of toddy or hooch.

Democracy or "mobocracy"?

Politicians of all parties project the cause of caste system to win the votes and make democracy a mean "mobocracy". Government officials are seen unashamedly corrupt, ready to cut off all the roots of ethics and morality. Money power, backed by vote-bank politics, can turn democracy easily into "mobocracy".

The so-called educated people are not ready to unite to wage a consolidated battle for implementation of the law or think of the country. In fact, the education system aims at only getting a job and nothing else. Mobs, backed by mafia groups are ready to plunder the country at any cost.

To put things in a nutshell, the very process of law and policy making is now based on the whims and fancies of an uninformed, ignorant public, lured by caste mania and controlled by corruption.
Only proper education can open the eyes of these ignorant people to rise against the oppressing evils of caste system and selfish politics.
