Hello India!Posted: October 20, 2010
I am India’s bad luck.
I am proud to be an Indian, but India is not proud of my Indianness
I am the judge, I am the leader, I am the bureaucrat and I am the public
I wish that my country should be corruption free, but I am least bothered about the malaise of corruption within me.
I am OK with encroaching government land, but I critisise the authorities for water logging.
I accept that corruption is the biggest curse of my country.
Though I am not a criminal in the real sense, I do steal electricity.
I am sad over the loot in my country but whenever I get an opportunity, I become a thief.
I steal in the dress of a leader, an official, and a bureaucrat…I steal in whatever form I can.
Actually I am proud to be an Indian because this is the India I inherited from my ancestors.
But I am creating an India which the coming generations will not be proud of.
I am the bad luck of India which has slowed down the pace of India’s progress…and India, today, is not where it should have been.
Actually I am a punishable culprit, but then I am the judge, I am the leader, I am the bureaucrat and I am the public.
That is why am sure of the fact that I am the culprit but I won’t be penalized.
