You know what makes me angry,
i) Satyendra Dubey, B. Tech (IIT Kanpur), M. Tech (IT-BHU), IES officer (Civil Engg.), assassinated for exposing corruption in National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) project in November, 2003.
ii) Shanmughan Manjunath, MBA (IIM Lucknow), Marketing Manager (IOCL), murdered for sealing a corrupt petrol station in Lakhimpur Kheri, UP in November, 2005.
iii) Rinku Singh Rahi, B. Tech (NIT Jamshedpur), Civil Servant (UP), assaulted and removed to a mental institution for exposing welfare scheme fraud in Muzzaffarnagar in March, 2009.
iv) Narendra Kumar, IPS officer, run over by tractor carrying illegally mined stones after he tried to stop it by the members of mining mafia in Madhya Pradesh in March, 2012.
Why that makes me angry?
Well-educated and really smart people dying for a country where the only achievements of their daring feats are Awards and Trusts established in their names. Then, forget about them. Watch movies, play games, hangout in malls and criticize the govt. for everything. That’s the only things you’re capable to do in your life. I’m ashamed of my fellow countrymen. They disappoint me. Especially the “common” man.
Why are brilliant students from IITs, IIMs and AIIMS leaving India and working for some bloodsucking MNC abroad, thousand of miles away? It’s due to the fact that Indians doesn’t like rebels. The average ‘John Doe’ of India doesn’t care about RTI, Whistle Blower’s Protection, Lokpal or good governance. All they fucking care about is making money.
Gandhiji said “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. I can’t be a common man of India, not caring about the injustices and unfairness in my surroundings. I’ve made it my duty to live a life dedicated to make the world a more egalitarian society. No one can drift me from my life’s ultimate goal, not even my parents. I’m ready to fight this sick world to cure it’s sickness.
