Who are to be blamed?

People say that the government is responsible for everything and anything happening in our country and to be precise , all the wrong happenings.We chose the government so aren't we suppose to be a part of those wrong happenings which take place.Anywayz I am not beating around the bush ,we have people debating on social issues whether the Govt. or the citizens themself are responsible for the condition of our present India.All of us know that we as citizens have responsibility towards the country's economic development. But back to square one , who is going to bell the cat ?

I really dont think people dislike talking on social issues. Its not that we are ignorant , we just know as a person we can't really change things.And being an Ex-NRI, I have loved social service cos I knew India needed that desperately.Being a member of the NSS ,I have seen so many parents being hesitant to send their children to clean roads ,or help build houses..cos they are worried about them getting sick ,cutting classes.Who ll want to risk their childrens' lives for the sake of keeping the country clean but yes they wouldn't mind risking for a few marks in their exams(being a member of NSS , you get additional marks). Who are to be blamed?

Maybe the first few days you can see people on the roads cleaning ,but it never becomes a habit.We've read in books ,watched so many footages ,tell me one person whose actually felt like making it happen rather than voicing their opinion each and every time about the same problem. And we better find someone to bell the cat before it gets too late!

Hello Neha, Thanks for the wishes and the comments.
Politicans have achieved more mileage shouting from rooftops about what good they would do and what bad opposition is doing, than actually doing the good.
Making something a habit takes commitment and not mere repetition - which is why people are to blame along with the politicians.

Such issues have grown bigger than a cat to bell, and probably require more effort.....

I never said people are not responsible . Everyone knows that if the society takes a step ,we can give things a start..and like you said commitment is required. When people cant get committed why should we write about how irresponsible we are.People should stop talking big when they can't be a part of it.

Hiee....
U r right in telling we choose the government and we blame them, but hey, do we have an option??? U can vote for the right man if someone of tat sorts stands up for an election, but whom 2 vote 4 when u have 3 un educated fellas asking 4 ur votes?.. The one u r close to .. right? Simple!
Now, about the other things regarding parents, these are things that take place in every country, we havent seen any other place in close up, y doesnt our parents allow?? cos in a populous low per capita country, high successful education is the only way to a happy life, u cant survive in a nation so economically stricken and politically corrupt without good marks! but yea, i agree there needs 2 be a change in the thinking .. but dont worry, generation is awakening, the youngsters are talking, reacting... our nation is changing...we hav young leaders in Sachin Pilot n co... To add on to the knowledge, Sachin Pilot fulfilled all the elction promises! Surprise surprise!

Hello... Thnx alot 4 the comments.. ",.. comin baCK to the post.. Hm.. i feel, thers no point shifting the blame on the govt or the pple.. At the end of the dae, if both the govt n the pple try to work hand in hand, we sure can see some improvements.. ",

All of us are aware that only if the Govt. and the people work hand in hand,can we solve these problems. But the question is when is the Govt. going to work hand in hand with the people.

Hey Neha.. I guess people forget to realise that the government is runned by the citizens of that country only.. And whether the goverment is good or not depends on the mindset of the citizens of the country.. If they are witty , well educated and want their country to prosper then the government will never dare make a mistake..!!

Thanks For Visiting My Blog dear !!
