Temple for scrapsPosted: 30/07/2010
Our country, India won their independence after years of oppression and then realizing that they too have rights to be free and choose their government.
In today’s context, I find it fascinating that a person or group is constructing a monument/ homage to the state head because he has ‘provided’ or implemented a scheme for the poor.
Wake up! That’s what you elected him to do in the first place! Access to basic amenities was and is your right and for so long, the people you elected were inefficient! They hoarded on wealth and power instead of serving the entire constituency until the time came for elections!
But we endure because we think that oppression is a way of life. Instead of fighting and establishing a better life, we accept whatever scraps are given to us so that we can live for the next day.
