A letter to the "Stupid Common Man"

The "Stupid Common Man"

Its high time now and I just need to voice my opinion on this whole Anna Hazare vs Govt. issue. 

I believe in Anna Hazare. Anna has no sinister intentions behind his movement but we just can't humiliate the government in the way they are being humiliated all over the place and Internet.

Every morning I log in to my facebook account and see dozens of morphed pictures that includes Mr. Manmohan Singh, Mrs. Sonia Gandhi and Mr. Kapil Sibbal and in almost all of these photos they are depicted to be spreading corruption and selling the nation, I personally get miffed to see those pictures.

 There used to be times when we had an opinion on our favorite politicians and how we liked Rahul Gandhi's movement for the farmers in UP, but I don't think we hardly have any favorites now, they have been labelled as corrupt, but its not necessary that they really are, as much as they are being criticized.

We must remember the e-mail chains that forward manmohan Singh's degree all over the internet, and bragging about our country's highly qualified PM, but post-anna there had been a character assassination of these political leaders. Why don't we understand that Anna's Movement is against corruption and not against this social figures whom the common junta is targeting.

I would like to appeal to each one of us, if you really want to do something good for your nation, act upon little details of corruption and do not show disrespect for these political leaders. We are matured enough to understand that there is surely a need for an anti corruption movement but perhaps some people needs more maturity to know what to resolve rather than whom to target. 

I support Anna, I respect Anna, I would love to wear the 'topi' that says "I am Anna"
but I am only against corruption and no one else in particular.

  1. Being against corruption isn't everything... you need to act. For instance, have you stopped jumping traffic signals? Have you stopped disrespecting queues? Do you still pilfer office stationery? Do you still throw an empty bag of chips just anywhere? ...if you're bothered about these 'little' things, then yes, you can lecture the world on corruption and how to deal with it. :)

    1. yes, I do.. and that's the point I want to convey through this post, that resolve smaller problems around you, and then the people may find lesser reasons to hate the authority.

  2. Amritt, I am reading your blog for the first time. What impression that I got from your writing is that you are hurt by what you have seen on your social network and have poured it out. I do not know may be you have done it, but I feel you haven't tried to search for reasons why the same people who have been a part of the email chains to grace our humble Mr. PM are full-on in defaming him now. I guess there is a reason for it and its not triggered by either Mr. Hazare or by anyone. we had those pictures even before... its just that the frequency has increased. I feel the people on our social network are thoughtful enough to equally praise and rebuke things and adding to that the purpose of having a social network is to express your feelings...which is exactly what people are doing...

    1. you knw what, sonal... there are people who doesn't care at all about this country, but they still share those pics for their popularity among friends on facebook.. there are some 10-20% of people out of the lot, who really protest the government, and I strongly appreciate it for them..!!
