Samar: I agree; its democracy and they chose you.
This is a normal scenario in India, something wrong happens like stampede or some other incident, the minister in-charge’s first words are – “Yeh toh public ki galti hai”…how ironical this statement is, do they mean that choosing them as minister was the fault of the public. Be it incident of Delhi Railway station stampede, or blowing off the bus by naxals in Chattisgarh, or be it the killing of the CRPF Jawans at their base by naxalites.
Our ministers just talk n talk n talk, I sometimes feel the urge to take some drastic steps like that in Rang De Basanti. I have always felt that I was lucky to be born in India. If someone said that India is dying, corrupt, etc, I just asked them to compare India with some of its neighbors and many countries in Asia and Africa and even in South America. I still speak the same, but the feeling inside has cracked a little.
