I HATE POLITICS! I HELP POLITICS!

“I HATE POLITICS”—YOU CAN SEE THIS PHRASE MOST OFTEN, IF YOU CHECK FACEBOOK PROFILES OF NEARLY TEN PEOPLE. THOUGH, THEY HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO EXPRESS THEIR OPINION, I AM NOT RESTRICTING IT, BUT, TRYING TO COUNTER IT JUST BY JUSTIFICATION.I HAVE ASKED MANY AND HAVE SOUGHT FOR JUSTIFYING THEIR SUCH NEGATIVE OPINION ABOUT POLITICS. BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, ALMOST EVERYONE PROVED THAT THE PHRASE IS IN VOGUE. BY WRITING IT, ALMOST, EVERYONE TRIES TO PROVE THAT THEY ARE SO CALLED CLEAN FIGURES, AS THEY ARE NEITHER DIRECTLY NOR INDIRECTLY RELATED WITH POLITICS OR POLITICAL SYSTEM. THEY CAN STUDY POL-SCIENCE UP-TO CLASS 10, AS THEY HAVE TO, THEY CAN TAKE HUMANITIES (AND POL-SCIENCE) IN 10+2, AS THEY DON’T GET THE OTHER OPTIONS. BUT, AT THE END OF THE DAY, THEY FAIL TO UNDERSTAND THE DIVINITY OF POLITICS. THEY REMAIN AN UNAWARE CITIZEN OF INDIA, IN RESPECT TO POLITICS. THEY DON’T KNOW HOW THE PM GETS ELECTED, HOW THE PRESIDENT GETS ELECTED, HOW CJI IS APPOINTED, HOW THEIR LIFE IS RELATED WITH POLITICS, THEY ONLY FEEL GOOD TO SAY THAT, POLITICS IS A “DRAIN” WHICH CAN NEVER BE TREATED BY THE STP.
PERHAPS, WE LIVE IN INDIAN SOCIETY, HOW CAN WE GET RID OF STUPIDITY? ITS COMMON THING IN OUR SOCIETY. WE ARE TAUGHT BY OUR PARENTS, THAT WE CAN BE DOCTOR, ENGINEER,CA, ICWA, LINGUIST, ADVOCATE, JUDGE BUT, NEVER A POLITICIAN . HOW MANY OF WE SEE DREAMS OF BECOMING PM OR PRESIDENT OR CM ? DO WE? MAY BE, BUT, VERY FEW. THIS MAY BE BECAUSE, THERE IS NO SUCH EDUCATIONAL ELIGIBILITY REQUIRED FOR HOLDING SUCH POSTS. BUT, PUBLIC , OPPOSITIONS, WILL POINT OUT, IF A MINISTER IS ONLY 12 PASS. PEOPLE DEMANDS EDUCATIONALLY QUALIFIED LEADERS BUT, THE CHAIR DON’T. AS THE TIME IS CHANGING, AN UNEDUCATED FELLOW CAN NEVER EVER BE A MINISTER; THIS IS THE TREND OF FUTURE. WHEN WE WILL BE TAUGHT THAT POLITICS IS NOT THE LAST RESORT OF SCOUNDRELS BUT, A SERVICE WHERE EDUCATED PEOPLE COME TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE SOCIETY, THAT DAY, LIKE PEOPLE, SEE DREAMS OF BECOMING DOCTORS, ENGINEERS, CA, ICWA, WILL ALSO SEE DREAMS TO ENTER INTO POLITICS AND TO RENDER THE NATIONAL SERVICE. TIME IS CHANGING; POLITICS IS HAVING A BROADER SENSE IN THE MIND OF GENERAL PUBLIC.
TODAY, WE ARE GLORIFIED TO WITNESS HOW THE EDUCATED PEOPLE ARE ENTERING INTO POLITICS. FORMER IPS OFFICER, KIRAN BEDI, AAP CHIEF ARVIND KEJRIWAL, BOTH ARE RAMON MAGSAYSAY AWARD WINNERS, MINISTERS, ARUN JAITLEY, HOLDS A LAW DEGREE AND MANY MORE ARE THERE.THEY ARE NOW THE ROLE MODELS OF SOME, INDEED, A MATTER TO BE PROUD OF.
BUT, IT CAN’T BE SAID THAT ONLY HOLDING EDUCATION QUALIFICATIONS WILL MAKE YOU PRACTICE CLEAN POLITICS. VALUES ARE INDEED VERY NECESSARY. WE HAVE MAMATA BANERJEE, WB CM, HER CHOICE OF MINISTERS IN THE CABINET HAS COST HER, JAYLALITHA, FORMER TAMIL NADU CM, PAID HER PRICE. AND FROM ALL THESE FACTS WE CAN INFER THAT ONLY HOLDING DEGREES CAN’T MAKE A SYSTEM FREE FROM ALL THESE.
LET US COME TO THEM, THE “I HATE POLITICS” PEOPLE. THEY MIGHT HAVE UNDERSTOOD BY NOW THAT, LIKE ALL SERVICE, ALL PHASES OF LIFE, HERE ALSO WE HAVE BAD AND GOOD, AND FOR THAT YOU CAN’T DEDUCE THAT IT IS WORTHLESS. WE ARE ALL RELATED TO POLITICS. EVEN IF YOU HATE POLITICS, YOU CAN’T HELP. THEY TAKE THE DECISION, HOW WE WILL LIVE IN THE SOCIETY, HOW WILL OUR SOCIETY BE AND WE CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT AFTER 5 YEARS, WHEN WE FEEL THAT THEIR DECISION WERE NOT GOOD. YOU HAVE TO RECEIVE EDUCATION, STATE BOARDS, CBSE ETC. REGULATED ULTIMATELY BY GOVT., THE POLITICIANS, YOU HAVE TO AVAIL THE GOVT. SERVICES, FUNDED FROM THE GOVERNMENT TREASURY, YOU HAVE TO GIVE VOTE TO MAKE THE POLITICIANS FORM THE GOVERNMENT, FROM THIS POINT OF VIEW, YOU ARE HELPING THE POLITICIANS TO DO POLITICS, TO WIN YOUR VOTE. AND YOU CAN SAY HONESTLY, ‘I HELP POLITICS’.
FRIENDS. BROTHERS, SISTERS, WE ALL ARE RELATED TO OR, WITH, POLITICS. LIVING IN A DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY (INDIA), WE SHOULD REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT A GOOD POLITICS IS, TO BUILD OUR NATION, FOR OUR GROWTH, ECONOMICALLY AND SOCIALLY. A GOOD POLITICAL SENSE ENSURES US A HEALTHY LIVING, PROPERLY CHOOSING OUR LEADERS AND EVENTUALLY, WE ARE BENEFITED. NOW, IT'S UP-TO YOU, HOW WILL YOUR RATIONAL AND INTELLECTUAL MIND TAKE POLITICS AS.
