This situation of crisis has led this country to utter chaos and disappointment. The scenario went from scary to panicky within months. The end of 2019 brought a major setback for the year 2020 and the problems prolonged to 2021 as well. It’s the inefficiency of the government which has led the country to face this turmoil today.
The basic traits of human beings are never easily changeable. It is indeed true what Tulsi Das writes in his epic Ramacharit Manas, “Jako prabhu darun dukh dahin, taki mati pehle hi harlehin! (जाकोप्रभुदारुणदुखदेही, ताकीमतिपहलेहरलेही).” So is the case with our government.
The results were apparent when the imprudent ruler of one particular state was given charge of the whole nation. When in a country the suggestion is construed as obstruction, the working women with a kid is questioned on her choice of clothes, profession and even husband by a “Chief Minister”.
A raped girl is cremated without the presence of her family members. The distinction among Hindu, Muslim or Sikh is not made just based on religion but due to fanaticism, or rather fascism, and rashtravad becomes a major goal. Then the citizens must question the brutal system.
You can feel the lack of oxygen in the country by not being in a critical condition but also whilst sitting at home. India’s strength in terms of ethics, political will and economic development, and lately in the healthcare system, is completely exposed.
Is it ethical on the part of the government to focus more on building a new parliament house or a new temple for Lord Rama rather than looking into the issues of utmost national interest such as the protest against the Agro-bills or dealing with the pandemic?
The government has kept a fund of ₹35,000 crores to be spent on the vaccines. To be put simply, the funds were kept aside to fill the industrialist’s greed at the cost of humanity. Shouldn’t the focus be on spending the PM Cares Fund on research and development of a vaccine in the public sector rather than turning the youth into fanatics from normal human beings?
Should the healthcare sector remain so badly managed even after spending 1.26% (according to the manipulated data 2.5%) of GDP on it?
If the media does not put these questions, then who else will? Instead of providing a solution to these burning issues, they are bent upon making India a Hindu Rashtra.
We, the countrymen, need answers. If the government is so blind not even to consider these questions, then maybe it’s time to rethink our decision about electing dictators rather than public servants. Let us think over who brought us back to the negative.
