Perhaps we will continue to be viewed as people who lack real talent and merit and resort to unethical and unlawful means for realizing ends. If you remember correctly in the last elections the then Prime Minister raised a question on kidnapping of a school Boy Kishlay in a public meeting. In fact then it appeared as if people will finally take the courage to root out the evils of corruption, nepotism and criminalization which has become the bane for the society, but unfortunately people continue to be cowed down by inertia and the results are for everyone to judge.
Perhaps the continued spate of criminal activities is an indicator of the fact that the democratic values of people’s representation has given way to Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest. Kidnappings continue at alarming rate, criminalization and caste politics continue to plague electoral process and the worst is that we are a society bereft of any ideology .I guess when survival is a question then ideal of ideology seems truly utopian dream.
Let’s just hope that things take a better turn and we have something good to tell the world collectively as a society and not just individual sparks of brilliance.
