It’s independence day today. And today till now Chennai is safe and breathing safe without any Bomb blasts. Since there was a hoax on Bomb blast on August 15th in Chennai, people were afraid and government has made some strict arrangements for several checkups in the main places of city.
For the past 15 to 20 days , the Chennai patrols were screwed up and regular checkups of vehicle’s and persons were made in most places of the city. That too in night times after ten there were more patrols roaming and we can able to see a policeman for every 100 to 200 meters. For good sake , nothing happened till now. And hope for the best and for rest of the days.
Is this a good sign of Independent India ?? Are we safe after this 61 years of Independence ?? Are we staying in one of the most peaceful country in the world ?? … I can say NO. Do we have answers and proper explanations for the above given questions ??
Lots of unclear and unanswered questions going around me . Nuclear Deal with US , Indo-US agriculture knowledge initiative with US, non religious/caste/community based political parties and leaders, imbalance in growth among the industries, indications of civil war, quality less education in public schools, lack of investments in RND , fastly dying Agriculture, increasing basic medications cost, loosing the culture, reservation systems in educational institutions and private sectors, non eligible politicians etc., etc., more things goes around my mind.
Apart from this , equally these positive things also goes around me. Responsible and social centric youths, awareness on child labor, freedom for women , awareness on importance of education, accessibility of technologies in all corners, growth on IT, social responsibility of software engineers and college students, growing number of NGO’s, Corporate ‘s Social Responsibility (CSR), proving young minds and few educated professionals in politics, the strength of youths etc., etc.,
Anyways , as a self and social responsible human being , I will always whole heatedly work for the development of society , better humanity and a clean world. I (we) never wanted a Independence day like this year , wish some betterment in the coming years. Sorry to say this ….today is juts an another day for me.
