Why? – Part 2

Why is that we have some very good Chief Ministers but they inevitably never make it to the Centre? Why is it that good governance is possible in some states although the bureaucracy is nearly the same across all states? Why is that some states still languish? Why is that the voters in those laggard states still keep electing the same incompetent people again and again?

Why has India suffered from singularly bad political leadership for the most part through the past 60+ years? Why is it that we don’t realise who is responsible for the sad state of affairs? Why is it that even after every institution has been corrupted we still refuse to feel outraged?

Why is that we don’t think of our children? Why cannot we decide to bequeath a rich, developed country to our children? Why can’t we make India rich in a generation?
