Youths don’t have to enter politics!!!!

Seeing the topic please don’t think I am a guy who belongs to that group who say politics is drainage and we need to keep away from it. I don’t say politics is drainage, its indeed the most vital system for any country to flourish. Then what is my point? Please read further.

Now days we see corruption reaching new peaks every day. Corruption in lakhs is gone and now it is in lakhs of crores. One side we see one lakh and seventy thousand crores scandal, other side we see our dignity spoiled in international arena. We also see a government servant mounting gold piles.

Seeing these we comfortably point out politicians as the root cause. But I don’t see it that way. Our leaders are as good as our own self. They don’t jump straight from skies. They are just one of us. 90% of us are corrupt, lethargic, undisciplined and irresponsible. How can you expect one of us (elected) to be 100% perfect guy?

I see an auto driver is corrupt to get more money than he is destined. I see my neighbours not bothering to litter the streets to keep his home clean. I see my fellow motorists on road without bothering the rules just to make himself ahead of others. Then how can you expect one of the above to be a great politician. 

We can say these are small mistakes that can be easily forgiven. But I don’t see it that way. I think everyone is doing corruption to the extent they can. A politician has the chance to excel. That’s all. I believe the basic problem is the attitude of our people.

With a mind full of corruption and irregularity, how can you expect them to choose a wise person? You can see back the history. Kamaraj and Gandhi have suffered defeat in the hands of our people. With this condition how can you expect me to encourage good youth to enter politics?

If I am allowed, I will suggest youth to do something to first bring discipline to our people, rather than entering politics. If this is done, then our people would be fit enough to choose better persons. I believe this may automatically take us to a time where we dont have to starve for good leaders.

If there are 100 rotten apples in a bag and if one have to pick one, isn’t it irrational to blame the person for picking a rotten one? First we need to take steps to change the rotten apples. Then we will have better chance of getting the right ones.

absolutely right!

It looks like we are not able to lead a life without corruption.. There is no wonder even if someone approaches court to legalise it. Its part of our lives. Its a bitter truth.

Corruption has become a way of living. What right I have to blame a corrupt minister, if I am willing to give a constable 100 Rs and escape from a ticket?

A point very well made but the question is everyone corrupt?

Transparency & accountability is the need of the hour but the implementation seems to take ages.

Corruption only favors the people in power and leaves out the people who try to believe in the system helpless.

Its not like there is a shortage of people who want to bring the change in this situation but the problem is that the roots are so deep rooted that its gonna take a while before we see the change we need to take.

@ Survivoe: not everyone but almost all are corrupt with their own excuses. that is one of the reson for why we get leaders like this.

yes. there is no shortage of the people who wants to bring change. but the problem is that they dont realize that the change should start from them.

thanks for commenting.
