LUL (Let Unique Live United)
I am writing this blog exclusively keeping in mind the date 15th August i.e., Independence Day of India. I am very active on social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, WhatsApp etc. I receive several messages everyday which are communally biased, politically motivated, un-authenticated rumors, hurting a particular group or an individual which really feels a lot.
India is a land of diversity. Whether it is religion, caste, community, language or economic disparity. We have no option but to live peacefully united and in harmony. Britishers were famous for divide and rule policy but even after 68 years of independence; our political party plays the same game of divide and rule. In era of social media explosion this may be disastrous and devastating.
The most unfortunate part is that majority of our population is illiterate. Their emotions and mind can be ruled by few shrewd politicians who can divert the mind & energy of such public for achieving the selfish motives. There is a great need to inform / enlighten every citizen that interest and safety of our country is above their caste, creed and religion. We may have individual faiths, liking and choices. But when we are united/collective, interest of country shall be supreme.
Good governance is possible where either the society is enlightened such as few European countries, U.S. etc. or where dictatorship is ruled such as Arab countries, China etc. In country like India, it will take few more decades for citizens become enlightened and political parties to be matured. Probably we need directed dictatorship in every state headed by a clean person.
My appeal on Independence Day to all educated and enlightened people is not to encourage the spread of messages which are biased or critical to particular group. We all are unique. Let us live United and follow Universalism.
