An excellent post that came my way.. worth sharing with all..
My problem with what’s happening in the country is not about BJP and Congress, Or JNU and anti-nationalism, or Jats and reservation, Or Hindu Extrimism and Muslim Extrimism, Or Beef Ban and Porn Ban, Or Kejriwal and Modi, Or Ravish and that ‘India wants to know’ guy.
My problem is our mindspace being occupied with futile, useless, fruitless, negative, regressive thinking.
In an age when this country should be thinking of inventions and ideas, we are discussing subjects mentioned above.
I like Modi’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. Why can’t we discuss that and talk about it?
That can be a game changer for this country if the entire nation gets involved in it and if the government practices it and not just makes hoardings out of it.
Why isn’t the government and media talking about it?
Why the subject of debate is not development?
Why isn’t RSS talking about it?
Why aren’t the Hindus or Muslims or talking about it?
Why the news channels aren’t focusing on it?
Why Indians on facebook not discussing it?
Or spreading that idea to the world?
Saffron or Green, Beef or Chicken, Porn or Sanskari channels, Temples or Mosques, Jats or Kashmiris aren’t tools of development.
These subjects of conversations are anti-development. And anything that’s anti-development is anti-national atleast for me.
I want to see my India look better than Switzerland.
I want my India to do better than the US in the Olympics.
I want to see my India more civilzed than the most civilized country in this world.
I want my India to be more innovative than Japan.
I want my India to be more safe for woman than Copenhagen, Denmark.
I want my India to be more open minded than Canada.
I want my India to be better than what it is today. And not worse.
And that can only happen when we start thinking productive.
Else we will all be wasting time doing something that is useless, futile, infertile.
