“Can anything positive ever happen? Anna Hajare won’t be able to achieve anything. Take my word – Congress will be back to the power in next election. They’ve the ‘Money'” – said my gym trainer to me as I asked him about his opinion on the protests going on in India. Instead of fighting the enemy, people seemed to have found solace in adopting corruption as a way of life. It’s easy and gets the things done for us – the middle class. It’s easy for us to shell out Rs. 100 note to the traffic police man if we get caught after jumping the signal. Our common aim is to get a degree in engineering or medicine and then try our ass off to discover a way to settle in US or Europe.
In short, we’ve found our comfort in being spineless.
Years of slavery and carefully implemented strategies by the British rule has led us to believing that we are good for nothing and then we try hard to prove it to everyone.
We’re just a bunch of hopeless people.
