DARK ASPECTS OF INDIAN REPUBLIC
On 60th republic day after analyzing economical, political and social conditions of the nation I don't see a very exciting image of Indian republic. although a golden image of nation's economy is presented by high development rate, and by increasing pile of foreign currency, but the other side of the image is also not less scary, terrorism, unemployment, increasing inequality, regional differences among people turning into violence and uncontrolled aggression behind the desires of countrymen is creating an explosive situation. in last 15 years lakhs of farmers and thousands of weavers have committed suicide because of their poor economic condition. number of unsatisfied extremist groups are increasing in Jammu-Kashmir, eastern states including Tamil Nadu, and Maharashtra, this is a serious threat to India's unity and integrity, and in coming years this is going to be a huge challenge in front of our nation, common man is struggling with unemployment, corruption and inflation, today common man is disappointed and helpless. But all this doesn't mean that nation is not developing or progressing, but benefits of the wealth produced by development is not reaching the common man, 1/4th of the population is still below poverty line, and world bank estimates that one third of the global poor resides in India, more than ten crores of people are looking for jobs, and what else could be worse than people of different states clashing with each other for the jobs, today number of naxal affected states have reached to 13 which was initially 3 in number, and initially only one state was suffering of terrorism and today entire nation is a victim of terrorism, in current political scenario every party lacks direction in leadership, so how can they give a direction to their party workers, condition is so worse that our MP's accepts money to ask question in parliament and entire nation watches them accepting bribe on television, I believe its only possible in our country that a politician roams freely with pride despite of several allegations of corruption and criminal cases, and they defend themselves by saying that this is opposition's conspiracy against them, any plan, program or any government unit which is responsible for welfare of people is completely corrupt from top to bottom, if everything continues like as it is going on then we can clearly imagine what our future is. Our agriculture is in danger, according to the report of U.N out of 177 members India holds 126th place, in the poverty list of 102 developing countries India holds 55th position and in adult literacy rate India is on 98th position, our position is not far ahead of the poor countries attached to the Sahara desert, will our government and politicians will be able to bring a change in these conditions ? if we consider the approach of solution of any problem like electricity, water, health , education or any problem related to the people we can see number of failures of our government. Our government has been really busy in singing songs of their achievements but they hardly care about those 35 crore people living below poverty line,10 crore unemployed people, 40 crore illiterates, 5crore child labors and crores of handicapped peoples, biggest thing to worry is those who are running the government they are not at all concerned of these problems, 3/4th portion of our national budget is being spent on those useless bureaucrats who are nothing more then a burden on the nation. Condition of our judiciary is so pathetic that its not able to provide justice to common man who keeps on running to the court for years, number of huge scams take place every year and our government just acts as a spectator and those who are culprits and responsible never get punished, I still think that will our government ever be able to provide food, security, health, justice, employment, and a proper structure of fundamental facilities to common men.
