Dandi March II

Posted in Society by justaroundme on March 24, 2011

No computers, no internet, no facebook and no twitter – without these high-tech means, how do you bring together an entire nation to march towards a change?.What the social activists did during the Indian freedom struggle to unite the entire country seems as an implausible task in this present day and age. But they believed, they fought and they won and we breathe freedom. Today, we are marching – but not against a foreigner but to fix the dire state of our corrupted political system.

Any law abiding citizen of India living to his/her due diligence would weep silently by seeing this list and is growing consistently. Be it the right to education for women to the recent RTI and RTE nothing was granted without a fight by the social/political activists. I feel that the activists are the pure catalysts in a society.They shout, scream, get beaten up;yet, they remain strong in their vision.All the struggle they take is for benefit of the entire nation.But I feel that all their struggle is taken for granted by many who do not even vote and be indifferent about the current state we are in. I get deeply hurt by the “Ram rules or Ravaan rules, it does not matter to me” attitude,especially if it is among the most educated people.

Have you heard about “Anna Hazare”, living Mahatma Gandhi. He is marching against corruption and also he has promised to fast unto death if the Prime Minister is not passing a stringent bill on Anti-Corruption.He is a simple man with no Swiss bank accounts. He lives in a temple.

Dandi March 2 is happening in a global level on March 26 2011. Please pass on the word around and support Anna and his team. We being part of the blog-sphere can write about it,tweet, display the banners in our facebook profiles and we can think about to spread this in all creative ways.

Please share your thoughts and let us play our small part of the big change.

    The strength in their belief about the righteousness stood them in good stead. To most of the others, including us, the very effort it’d take to organise is intimidating to say the least.

      very true.Also,after some point in our life, family takes precedence and i can totally understand that aspect.At the same time i do believe that every individual should be socially aware of what is going around and support the good causes, that keeps the social consciousness alive….

      Thank you very much for stopping by…

        That’s the key – Social Awareness. But city landscapes differ greatly from rural landscapes in that the sheer size makes it difficult to be closely knit with the society at large, eventually separating the individual from his overall social milieu.

    I have heard and read so much about Anna Hazare. The conviction and simple yet strong actions of his are astounding.
    Many of us are very passionate towards selected areas of interest that we forget and ignore the basic duties towards society. During days of freedom struggle, scientific progress was limited, but people’s conviction towards integrity and self respect was so much more. In today’s world, we have tremendous progress in the former, but our sense of integrity is sadly diving to an all time low. Changing this attitude needs a big change to our life style and priorities.
