Why Are We All So Hopeless?

“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.

Spineless People

No Spine.

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.

    How come not supporting/ not following one movement make me spine less?

    If you feel that fasting/agitating at MMRDA is the way to fight corruption .. best of luck..
    and expecting others to support that, isn’t that against the principles of democracy.
    Why do people feel that only by supporting Anna’s movement, I become a anti-corruption citizen and not otherwise?

      no one said fasting eradicates corruption, but again its either the Egypt way or the Indian way.I would rather believe in cause than in means to achieve it and when someone is trying hard to gather support for a good cause, I think its foolish to argue about the procedure.
      I came across this foolish guy who said -” how can fast help, how can 1 person command goverment, to eradicate corrpution , we need to have politics who are qualified, we need to construct a colleg like IIT for politics and then students from there need to be in parliament”. As usual , anytime I listen to foolish people I ignore them. They just don’t worth an argument.
      Please dont forget that it was due to aug 16 fast what Anna Hazare started triggered the gov to act , to do something about Lokpal bill and he has been successful in doing that. I have never seen a mob flash achieve this feat!
      As far as Single person being down parliament is concerned, I think turth has the power to do so.

    We  can all live happily if we have the serenity to accept the things that we cant change (in our lifetime !)  Courage to change the things that we can and Wisdom to know the difference. So each has to fight his own battle. If we spend all our life fighting against injustice, corruption, etc etc (india has a long list of such maladies) we will live a life of frustration,anger hoplessness. So the adage “love it or leave it” suits  better. Live a life in pursuit of happiness anywhere in the world ( Global village).
