Democracy is More than Voting once in Five Years. IF You and I hold that Democracy is the Best possible process of Governance, then, I beg to state that We Have to Keep a Keen Eye on How things are being managed.
It would mean a question of Using Many faculties of Ours, Our Observation, Thinking and Action. Apathy and Inaction leads to Death, literally.
Today’s morning news over the TV, at all of 5.30 AM, spoke of the Murder of a 70 year old man in Bengaluru. To use its Old name, by which it may be more familiar to Readers, this happened in Bangalore. reference below.
This site of https://lovehappinessandpeace.wordpress.com and I, Yesudas, as its Author had covered the myriad Rapes and Gang Rapes that had been Proliferating our Indian scene. A search for the word Rape on this site would show up enough articles.
Bengaluru, which is one of India’s better known, Ancient, Lovely and Advanced cities, saw Multiple cases of Molestation, Rape, and Alas, even the Murder of Children, often less than 10 years old. Do We still want to say that these will happen Just to Others?
Writing about all the above, I had written that We Need to be Involved in what is happening around us, as such things could happen to Us, too.
We Need to:
- Keep a Fair Hold on the Rein of things.
- Ask politicos and officials what they have been doing and why things are not moving.
- Join Protests and Marches, Show that So many of Us Care, (politicos are concerned Just with Numbers).
- Question, Castigate, Criticise, Demand, and Specify Just What We Want, and What Needs to be Done.
Failure in these, as We see today, ends even in Death. Actions Enumerated above will protect Democracy, and Us.
