Have u seen what’s happening in our country lately or have u just closed your eyes to it because it doesn’t effect you anymore. Well, since my eyes and ears are wide open, I just can’t help but feel a deep sense of shame, disgust and anger. A few days ago, a professor was beaten to death by students aided by BJP or Congress (who cares??? Aren’t they all pieces of *&^%) in broad daylight, while the entire police force stood there watching the proceedings as though it was an event which just needed their presence but no action.

What is happening to us? We let Gujarat riots happen, we let politicians decide which movies will be shot or released in this country, we let them decide what women will wear to college, which national song will be played in schools and now we have let them kill an innocent man just because he postponed university elections? And we then shamelessly call ourselves a open, secular culture, which accepts almost everything that comes its way.

Those, who have taken the pain to read this think about it for a moment. Do you want to be a part of a country, where democracy only exists in books? Do you want to be a part of a society, which kills people basis their cast, religion? Do you want to let these goons in the disguise of politicians ruin our country like this and then just keep mum because it hasn’t affected your lives so far?

I am sure, majority of you will say no but it’s not just about realizing it and forgetting about it. Next time when you step out to vote, think about these things, because whether we like it or not, we are in a way responsible for this menace. We voted for these guys and gave them the power they possess today. Let’s not make voting a chore we have to perform every few years.

This country was not built overnight. We are one of the oldest civilizations in the world, with thousands of years of history and culture which taught us to forgive and forget, to be humble and caring in every respect and to be civil to one and all. No political party, individual can ruin all that was built all these years with such ghastly acts.

Let’s teach them a lesson which will not be forgotten for ages to come. Lets for once make our VOTE count....
