I had a chance to look a photo, dated long time back. The picture shows a Police officer sitting on ground with the British and Indian Maharajas nearby standing. Whatever the context be, this reflects something odd. Well, i will not explain it and will leave viewers to comment.
Well this could be a good will gesture, however it reflects lot more. Did we really got independence? Did we ever put the importance of processes over people?
This is not rare. If we go to any government office relations matters, otherwise people are treated as slaves. This is a closed infinite loop, wherein people themselves want system to be like this, so that they can get more benefit than others. This mindset has not changed since long. This is still dominant in all organisations where Indians are with their mediocre presence.
Characteristics: They will not listen to you. Since they are the Babus they have the authority to be silent. You stand in queues, make request like “Respected Sir, Most Humbly And Respect Fully etc.” They feel proud of the fact that they have control of your fate till the time your work is not done. They feel proud that they can make you nuts, and harm you. The vary morning, they worshipped their stone idols and they exist in system with stone hearts. This is corruption at grass root level.
Characteristics: They discuss. They enjoy. Over the tea brakes, about party and politics. They take paan and split the red shit anywhere they find. Specially the corners. The vary morning these guys offered Namaz or Went to some Mandir, had their shoes outside, pretend to be clean, but what happened now. I see. This is workplace. Not Mandir or Masjid. I have every right to abuse it. Lets split the bloody red shit again, or some tobacco. They are not clean. The dirt in mind is nicely covered with the clothes they wear, the oppression they execute in their own family. And outside, they are respected. With the fear they execute they earn and make their hell satisfied. This is corruption of character.
Characteristic: They are highly ignorant. Ignorant of the fact about money, business and the commerce of exchanges around. To them is to save the salary. Maximise the illegal money. Keep the money in bank safe and be happy with interest. Neither they want to understand the Global Banking Crisis nor they are interested. Bloody obscure. And this is good to discuss the corruption topics. NDTV shows, and TIMESNOW heated arguments. The mother of all evils is the “Institution of banks” and “Market Monopoly” but they take this as a fairy tale.
People need to understand that the corruption eradication is a bidirectional simultaneous process. This require both bottoms up and top down cleanup. If people are not hardened and they are not equipped with strong value system the dropped ball of goodness will not hold the surface, it will bounce and the system will remain same. However if we see the system today, this has become vulnerable due to many factors.
Well, youngsters are classified in some weird ways. Bollywood, stars gossips, cricket and politics. Some are concerned for the next job change. iTunes and next electronic gadgets. Copying the hollywood vocabulary. Mesmerised with the Western lifestyle. Quick and judgemental. Values? “What the Fuck?”, i carry my own attitude, and this is my value system. This new, gray and going to be new slot is going to take charge of future and i can visualise the stability of society.
Good people by virtue of being good pretend to be silent, mostly introvert. However to bring a solid fabric to fight with corruption they need to unshit the deep shits. Silence and being saint will not work. Good people need to carry the duracell charged activities, and execute themselves in society. Unless they will execute and demonstrate the good to people, the natural gravity of darkness will swallow all.
Value System? How this can be glamorised? How this can be inforced?
