stitch in time saves nine

I fell upon this startling fact that India’s HDI is lesser than Vietnam ‘s.HDI as we all are aware is based upon three main criteria life expectancy, literacy, education.

while there are so many things to sew and stitch in the world, this particular piece of information has really touched me.

India no doubt is a country full of vast culture,heritage and what not.But what is the cause for our country to be in such a poor state?
among various reasons one of the major reasons i find is the social factor.

A good culture according to me is one which has the capacity to evolve.While preserving our ancestral traditions and methodologies is also required to show the next gen,we need to know what to preserve and what not to.While we have destroyed our monuments and rich philosophies we have preserved the caste system and other socially degrading factors.We can claim how much ever we want that we are a democratic country and we are secularists but where do we see people setting examples? we have communist parties who take it as there right to verbally and physically abuse anyone and everyone.we even had a communal leader who abused the president of our country and got away with it.On the flip side ,we have the artist being arrested in the name of protecting the culture.As far as i am aware and the way i have been brought up,we are supposed to respect elder people at least for their age.Even bigger concern is that more and more people are being drawn into this narrow minded path.for a country which was supposed to be based on equality and freedom of expression by our visionaries ,there credibility is sure to be questioned.

on the same hand we have anti-social groups growing.Most of these people have turned against their mother land,simply because their loved once have become victims of fake encounters or even worse social injustice.
Adding to this is the fact that our flora and fauna ,with whom our fore -fathers grew up with are being destroyed.

Education is something which can be bought ,all you have to do is pay.If corruption has trickled down to the root of the country should i say more?

Like in an ancient empire many live in fear of political parties.The situation of people seems to be becoming worse by the second.

We have many so called “swamijis” who make rather mint money from the god loving people.
To control this seems to be quite a complicated issue as such anti-social elements are directly associated with fanaticism.With the help of these blind people ,they go about putting their own laws and rules to follow.These include inter communal violence.Ironically it is the poor people who die,they the fanatics who put everything in ,including lives in the name of god die.

If we don’t mend these problems,we will have to sue a new country.Stitch in time saves nine

    well said Visesh! you think beyond your years.Corruption and insensitivity to genuine problems have become common so much so a few killings and a few more lootings happening right in broad daylight seems to have no effect on the onlookers mind.We need to change our perspective of playing safe and come forward to educate our children.I am willing to do my bit.But will it make a difference?
