Much of what I have outlined is obvious with just a little bit of thinking. But many of us have stopped doing so. In our daily struggles and desires, those among us who have the capability to bring about this transformation by changing people’s minds have cocooned ourselves in our own private gardens behind high walls.
And that is what allows governments like UPA 2 to get away with all that is happening. We excused UPA 1, and voted them back. If we do not wake up to think about the future we are letting happen, we may end up doing the same mistake once again. Ever so slowly, we are reaching a point where change is going to become harder if we do not start the process soon.
At least, we can create a fair contest. Force UPA 2 to show what it can do, and tell the BJP to clearly articulate its alternate agenda and show the leadership.
