The way Indian democracy has failed to take note of the concerns of ordinary Indians despite being hailed by foreign political experts as mature and successful democracy in the Asian region,I am least hesitant to suggest that monarchy is better than corrupt democratic system of governance!The latest example is fiasco that marred the political landscape of Karnataka! A constitutional head involved in cheap political interests ! Shame !! Just take note of the corruption level in recently concluded CWG games.
The judiciary that instilled faith in democratic institutions is also now tainted by corruption.That’s what I came to assume in the wake of the allegations made by Former Law minister Shanti Bhushan who highlighted the fact that how most of the Chief Justice were “definitely corrupt”.If we determine the standard of services offered by the various government bodies we find that most of them are offering poor services.I mean when you take note of them by contrasting their work with prevalent global standard !!
We have trains that do not run on time.The railway station or bus station are often in bad shape.We wish to run super fast trains but look at the quality of rail tracks !! We have government run schools but take note of the quality of education offered by them.We have state of the art schools run by private bodies but they are meant only for students belonging to rich families.The institutes meant for higher learning lack the infrastructure besides lacking the idea to compel students to pursue quality research work !!! As a result the institutes like IIM and IIT have become a mean to produce students whose main goal is to serve the interests of capitalist forces.
I mean the whole country is being plagued by all sorts of complexities that in the end have widened the gulf between haves and have-nots. Forget about tales of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.They both being hand in glove have set new standards of playing with the hard earned money of common citizens.I am not a chap who loves pessimism but it really hurts me that our system has nothing to offer to real good people interested in making real changes.They are being constantly marginalized being hailed as impractical souls and that makes the future more murkier !!
Isn’t it ironical that they present innocent teacher as drug dealer in the court while in state like Goa they suggest ways and means to the big drug dealers to keep them away from the long hands of law ?
“An Israeli drug peddler revealed that policemen supplied him drugs stolen from a police godown. His arrest led to Goa’s first drug-related gang war.
In the video, Atala speaks about his drug operation and how Goan police on his payroll advised him of ways to avoid getting caught - don’t buy a cellphone in your own name and change phone numbers frequently because your calls are monitored. “This is the mafia,” is how Atala describes the confederacy of crime between the police, politicians and the drug cartels.”
Recently,in Allahabad father and son ,both lawyers, were badly beaten by the police for no reason at all.It’s not the first time such an incident has occurred. Long time back S P Awasthi a lawyer at Allahabad High Court died in police custody due to alleged torture at the hands of policemen.The lawyers then went on rampage leading to breakdown of normalcy in the city.I remember the policemen were ordered by the court to follow code of conduct while dealing with lawyers and other eminent citizens. However,nothing has changed.The scenario remains grim even as the Human Rights Commission never fails to remind the State government to sensitize the police forces.
I just wish to know for how long innocent people be punished by the men in uniform ? Who will ensure that men in khaki turn into saviours than acting as chosen representatives of hell ? Any answers ?
