Can you see it coming ?

With a dismantled governance, a shattered faith, and a succumbed conscience, the present UPA 2 continues to approach towards its destiny with a final artillery of resilience and perhaps a final display of severity. They say every country witnesses phases, some good some bad. Some say what we had till now was good whereas some say what we had till now was bad. Irrespective of what can be said about what we had till now, what we'll have in the far future depends upon how we react in the near future. As this govt makes certain futile attempts to strengthen its shaky stronghold on urban masses and as the opposition makes a rather unstructured attempt to nip the time and get into power, we have a third front which is emerging out of its ashes from 98' and making its present felt via a barrage of powerful politicos who have the money as well as the will to entice people and capitalize on their apathy.

With the political scenario rattling under its own crevices, its hard to say what future holds for us but one thing is for sure, if everyone proves their might, our end is very well near. People are frustrated and are just at the bounds of setting themselves free from this anarchy. Corruption, disregard for sections, lack of responsibility and failure to control prices has resulted in a mass of people who are just at the verge of exploding themselves to get a better life. But for us being Indians, we are habitual of taking things for granted.
We know we can let those bullies down but we won't do that because we will like to wait for the next elections and try to get things done in the so-called "peaceful" way. But the question is, if  you're not going to commit the same helluva mistake again.

You may get yourself in the mindset of not letting UPA regain power but when the same UPA entices you with further reservations, free mobile phones, and a promise to get your men up in the hierarchy, you will be more than obliged to vote for them, no matter how many times in the past they denied you the same after promising. Albeit unlikely, you may very well get them into power. Or you may even open your hearts to the third front and decide making a useless sack of leaders into the power holders. Once you do that, either they'll die fighting for the post of the PM or you will die as a penance to the mistake you committed.

Even giving all the authority to the opposition wont be that good an idea. Though they seem more logical and sensible at this point of time, you never know what incognito identity they have to show us. The only thing we'd have to do to save our asses is to at least root out the UPA , at least for the moment. Not just root them out but to ensure that it causes an almost irreparable blow to their arrogance. But we also have to ensure that the opposition does have a viable opposition to bear with. The reason why we have any hope right now is that we have at least a opposition that can fight. If we empower the current opposition without making someone else get to do the role which they do now, the system might get chaotic again.

Although we may get a better governance, the nation will take a lot of time to get back on track.  Our dream of becoming a superpower in 2020 seems a distant one for now. We're a overcrowded nation with people who are dying for the basic amenities. We are going aback on the economical scale, we're surrounded by challenges of all sorts and we're more or less doomed, given our present condition. If the govt doesn't change, our end is near as I explained.People will come on the streets, take control and do all it takes to either die or to win.If the third front arises, both voters and non-voters would be committing suicides, take it from me.So in these cases, our end may very well be near. We're in a heavy crunch of resources with people who spend more time in traffic jams than with families, with people who earn but still cant earn as much as the inflation demands them to, people who see political honchos stealing their taxes and making mansions but people being deprived of their 2bhks on defaulting on a single installment.

Question is where are we heading and where would we go. who is to blame? We, of course. Did we fail to recognize our rights, or did we get deceived by the innocence of a bunch of beasts from Italy ? What was the independence for when even after the independence, the real heroes were forgotten as they did not bear that surname and the ones who did, irrespective of the fact that they did not even inherit it, continue to stay in power and dominate ? The question is can you see it coming ? Our end ! And the question is, would you do what it takes to avoid it ? Will you save the nation that was freed after a struggle of a mammoth time of 2 centuries. Would you do what you're supposed to do ? The nation needs you, and it needs you badly. will you stay with it ?
