There are hundreds of cases wherein no case has been registered.
They died for what they did, maybe because they were alone in this fight, and even if there were others, they were given bribe to shut their mouths. But would they have died if they had the support of even 50 men like them. NO.
India is a country with the largest number of youth population between the age group 18-25. Even if 20% of that population joins hands to fight against the odds, it would be enough to throw out all the evil forces, corrupt politicians and bureaucrats, or even the roadside rowdies.
But the question is, ARE WE A DEAD PEOPLE’S SOCIETY?
A society where people see wrong but never rebel against it; a society where people stay quiet and let things be the way they are; and those who do speak up against them have to pay a heavy price for it.
Are we no one to stand up for our country? Are we no one to fight for others, with whom we have the relationship of humanity and brotherhood?
Wouldn’t it be proud for us to say, “I stood for what was right and I won.” Then why don’t we do it? Are we waiting for a leader? Its high time we realized that there is a leader in all of us, all we have to do is initiate, and others are bound to follow us. Why don’t we spread awareness and motivate others to make a change, to throw out all the evil forces, be it politicians, bureaucrats, mafias, terrorists or even the neighborhood rowdy boys.
The youth must realize its potential and power and let the whole world see that if the youth joins hands, nobody has the guts to stop them.
Lets all pledge today, “ We will initiate, We will make a change, We will create a better world, We…will be the Youth Ki Awaaz.”[Photos: From top to bottom: Manjunath, Satyendra Kumar Dubey, Navleen Kumar]
