Open letter to all those who are showing sudden love for their countrymen

Abhinav Mishra | 16-Nov-2016

Last one week has been a game changer for the country, one way or the other. Being a Democracy, everyone has the right to give his thoughts on what is happening. This letter is not to any individual. It is for all those people who are raising concerns about the difficulty people are facing when any PM has taken such a bold decision in Indian history – in a positive way, for now.

I have just one question for all those who are shouting for the pain of their countrymen. When was the last time you raised your voice for the problem of your countrymen? Do you know how many people sleep hungry each night in India? The count is 20 crore. Have you done anything about it?  Leave that, have you ever raised concerned about it, even in your thoughts?

Do you know how many people die without food every year in our country - 10 million? What have you done about it?

I want to questions such people’s sudden love for their fellow countrymen. Before 8 November you were only bothered about your problem, your life. Why all of the sudden putting status that 'people are suffering', 'old people are standing in long queues'? Do you know how many elderly people live all by themselves? As per TOI report in 2014, the number is 15 million. Did you ever give a thought how these people were living all this while?

I am in no way trying to justify that adding a problem to existing problem is correct. But I am raising my voice for people who are sitting in their AC rooms and putting a status about their anger of other countrymen suffering and the mismanagement of the government and spreading negativity.

If you have a problem don’t make a post or blame the government. They are doing their part. If you feel for the people then go out and help people who are standing in queues with water/tea or in any other way you can.

You can be angry about your bad situation not of other countrymen when in past you have done nothing about it. You don’t have that right, morally.

You are blaming the government for the mismanagement. Have you ever managed even thousand people for a day? Then you say but 'he is PM, he needs to run the country'. But 'he' is still human and it is a very big system. You have given him the power to run the country, not any superpower.

There are 2 sides to every story. Why do you want to be part of the story which spreads negativity? And you call yourself a patriot. You want to get rid of cancer but you don't want to feel the daily pain of chemotherapy. On top of that those who are fighting you are telling them about the pain of others to demotivate them.

If you want to shoot, wait for the right time. When nothing changes after 50 days then shout for decision and everything else you are shouting about now. Good things do not come easy. The road is lined with pitfalls and if a pitfall is there, people will fall. Don't shout people are falling, make an effort bringing them up and if you can't do that then STOP SHOUTING.

Even when bad things happen you have to try to use those bad things in a positive manner and really just take the positive out of it. Look around so many good things have happened, spread that.

I know it is easier said than done but being neutral is better than spreading negativity.

Either do something fruitful or just sit back and think about ‘your life only’ as you have been doing all this while.
