All That is Blocked Silently
Atrocities against some very common individual rights are witnessed every day in almost every part of India and interestingly every common Indian is very much used to tolerating it. One such example is the Aam Sabha of Kisaan Morcha, which was held today at Bapu Bazaar, Udaipur’s main market at 3pm. Roads from all three sides were blocked (Delhi Gate, Surajpol and towards Shakti Nagar) by erecting tents.
Atrocities against some very common individual rights are witnessed every day in almost every part of India and interestingly every common Indian is very much used to tolerating it.
One such example is the Aam Sabha (General Assembly) of Bhartiya Janta Party’s Kisaan Morcha, which was held today at Bapu Bazaar, Udaipur’s main market at 3pm. To add flamboyance to the event, roads from all three sides were blocked (Delhi Gate, Surajpol and towards Shakti Nagar) by erecting tents.
A large stage was set at Bank Tiraha to conduct the meeting which took place after a mass rally.
The Sabha was called to convey a message to the ruling party in Rajasthan and the administration, to agree on the demands made by the Kisaan Morcha; the demands might be unadorned and should be look at positively, but what about the common Indian who is suffering because of the illicit road blockage?
Should the differences in opinion between the government and opposition result in suffering by a common man? Why the’ sabha’, ‘sammelan’, ‘dharna’, ‘pradarshan’, etc. cannot be done in the particularly prescribed area or a vacant ground?
When feelings of happiness and hatred are slapped over us; the common man is still silent. Is it the approach of the justice mongers to ensure that ONLY if a mass gathering takes place while disturbing traffic, commutation, etc. only then will the government pay heed to the needs of the common man?
Every time I ask questions and leave answers on you, but not today. Today I will answer my own questions because today I felt the meaning of being ruled.
I estimate that more than 80% of the Indian population is deprived of something or the other; many suffer due to rising inflation; many are deprived of education and most of them from social annihilation done by politicians.
Both happiness and sorrow of a politician are the headache of the public; the headache will turn into a fatal tumor if the politician has some post in the ruling party and in case if he is not in power then the tumor will turn into an explosive shell which will blast only on the head of the common man.
After Independence, relation between the public and leader was never cherished and to make it worse the relations of the ruling and opposition parties are naturally meant to be hostile. In all this chaos, what is left is the public property, which is actually not really of the public.
Thus, are digging and blocking of roads are so feasible? Now, if a politician is happy, he will celebrate on road…burning firecrackers, doing hip-hop, etc. and if anything unfortunate has happened with the politician, he will punish everyone guilty or innocent by calling BANDH! Calling dharna or going to extremes, igniting communal rights.
After all, it is the public and public property that will suffer – mutely, because earning a 2 course meal is more important and tough than raising the voice against political setbacks and their propelled policies; a common Indian choses to keep mum.
