Blame it on him!

Sixty years of legacy has created an labyrinthine fabric of poverty, illiteracy, dependence on the state, lawlessness, having ones way, flaunting connections, selfishness, putting self before the state, misusing quotas and subsidies.  Sixty years and people could not find an alternative, allowing the country to move from success to shambles.  The voices of dissent were silent all throughout.  Eleven months and the burden of those misappropriations, mismanagement, starvation, poverty shifts to the inheritors.

When you plan a monthly budget, do you spend the entire amount on food?  How many people crying shame on the defense deals keep a chunk of their personal income aside for charity?  Let me take the risk and ask why the tax paying class should always end up paying more taxes even for the non-taxpayers.  All around me, I see families of low-income group having utter disregard for the state, burdening themselves and the country with unwanted population.  None of these believes in family planning.  They have no less than five to six children, each with a minimum age gap.  My cook got pregnant with the fifth child while marrying her daughter.  People blame the government for their situation. Some soft hearted, educated, and aware citizens who are secular, socialists, Marxist go around the town posting pictures of jet deals and starvation statistics.  Do you honestly think that if country’s entire budget is distributed to the poor or if all the money that the middle and the rich classes earn is distributed equally to the entire population of the country, we will have a better situation, developed country, no starvation, prosperity?  Think again!  People never thrive on charity.  People will stop farming, constructing, manufacturing, working, if they get free lunches.  To top it, most of the money will be spent on drinking, buying new mobiles, partying.  Do you misjudge the piety of the poor?  I am constantly reminded of the story of ant and the grasshopper with an Indian twist.  Do not forget to read it, even if you know the story already.

Sixty years hence and numerous schemes like NREGA have been huge failures.  The so-called intelligentsia is happy to be have the schemes announced to accept a government pro-poor.  Any other expenditures to grow as a nation and the government become pro-rich.  Unfortunately, we are still struggling to develop despite all the potential.  The rampant corruption and the lackadaisical attitude of past governments have rubbed off so much on the citizens that this burden is harder to off-load.  The reason is simple; we are not a land of equal opportunities, but a land of stifled voices.  Any entrepreneurial thought is buried in red tape.  Here is an effort by the current FM to change the same.  But the dissention of a few will see only negatives.  Everything looks yellow to the jaundiced eye. Well, here is the list of some welfare schemes launched in 2014.  Go ahead find faults. Blame it on him and regress back to corrupt state-of-affairs, with no thought for the country.  Even if the facts stare you in the face, your preconceived notions and personal biases, your egos, will not let you see them.  I hope that there are only few of you, who are living only to plunge everything back into abyss.

    Agreed in Toto. Actually its time that the government also starts caring only for those citizens who follow rules and are ready to be governed. Its time to disown the rest and no government Goodies should be made available to those who do not follow the basic orders and instructions. The first thing to be taken away from the dishonest citizens is their right to vote.

    No fundamental rights should be given to each Indian as a right. Each one of us has to prove himself/herself worthy on at least 50% counts of the Indian Constitution to be worthy of receiving the largesse of the Govt.

    If a census of reservations is carried out of all those who have used it since it first came in vogue it will become amply clear that some have taken benefits again and again and the vast majority have yet to taste the fruits of reservation.

    Time for the Government to disown the DISHONEST Indians.
