Is Backwardness consequence of our Political System or its other way round

Backwardness of our country is not totally the consequence of our political system after all we get the political environment as we are. Our leaders come from us only so to blame politician is easiest methodology we have adopted for.

After the dawn of independence the economic and growth of our country was the major issue for our country and  after the globalization  it was a major concern. But at that time we have not at the survival position.

If we talk about the last two decades The system of coalition government especially has initiated a new tactics of saving the government rather than reviving the country. India has enough potential to grow but its leaders have even bigger bellies than that. Our political system dilutes the accountability and parties blame each other for any mis governance. But at the same time I would like to point out that the mindset and awareness of citizens also play a significant role in any country’s growth. In India most of the people treat themselves as just a statistics on a census chart and keep blaming politician for every small issue. They must understand their importance. I believe ctive and justified use of the political right given to citizens can improve country’s growth.

We can’t just blame the political system. We can see the present situation of voters who have no choice to elect better among the candidates for their constituency. Certain reforms should be brought such that the candidate stood for election shouldn’t have at-least a single case filed against him and investigating agencies like CBI should be given autonomous power as against under control under government. We can see many CBI cases haven’t been solved yet due to peer political pressure under the vested interests of the leaders. So we have to wake up and strive to take up an oath to remove corruption at the root level and thus ensuring the development of the country.

Our politics is not corrupt but who leads they are corrupt. Politics is a weapon that we can fight to corruption. Because if you are in politics so you are free their, only you have to give a command not request. So my point is if your honest and faith full and have the quality to lead the nation so from that place you can do it very well because our nation want to best and honest leader who can lead to our country.

A system is as good as the people manning the system. The people manning a system are as good as the principles a society holds dear. If the public holds dear to their hearts TRUTH and good values as much as Mahatma Gandhi did then our nation would not have faced separation and then wars and the politics would have run keeping the dirt out.

And the conclusion arises from all of that we can not just blame our politics or politician but a normal citizen can understand their responsibility towards our nation to build it corruption free, developed and try to move it to a new path of success.

  1. Today there is no fire in all our minds. Read history. Freedom need to be achieved, it does not come begging as a gift to a beggar. That is we are, beggars. We got freedom not fighting but begging. So we do not understand its value. (Read Attlee’s remark on why they left India-it is not for Gandhi’s Non Violance-INA and 1946 Arm revolution by Indian Navy and Army compelled them to quit- go deeper into the truth) Unless you sweat you do not feel its value. French Revolution, German Revolution, Russian Revolution, American (We are all eager to follow them and settled there as if there lies our salvation) war for independence all tells the same story. Unless you shed your blood, feel the pain and struggle for earning you do not value it. To us freedom is a type of luxury to have, money, fun, life style, copy european and american systems, – who cares for others? Hundreds of youth in the street remains onlookers when a girl is molested, when one is robbed or cheated. Let me not get involved is the theme, it is others problem. But when it affects you then why should you shout and cry for help! why can not you defend yourself because you are weak in mind. Because all of us are corrupt- physically, mentally and morally! ask yourself. If we fight together, march together, sleep together, eat the same food as a disciplined army then only we can stop these vandalism.

    I have seen Germans, French, Britishers, Chinese, how bold and fearless they are. They will never allow their administrators to do whatever they like. Because they have earned their freedom and livlihood. The never begged it. So do not lament on the street. We still liked to serve and be led by foreigners-Example Sonia Gandhi. Have you ever seen a Prime Minister of any country who can not stand erect and talk with a forceful voice ? If the foundation of freedom is on deception, the country and people will decieve each other-it is universal truth. To get real freedom we need to fight and that we are afraid of. Because each one of us do not like to sacrifice our comfort! let others go to hell!

    We forget that we are all Indians.

    There shall be one single constitution and rule for everyone; -no minority, Sc/St/OBC etc, Education on one footing, no haves and have not’s – !

    Thanks to my countrymen, I am now old but fire burns in me because I have lost my land in Bangladesh, you people have not. So do not just go on giving lip service and meaningless argument. Better keep quiet unless you can do something positive. !

    We forget that we are all Indians. There shall be one single constitution and rule for everyone; -no minority, Sc/St/OBC etc, Education on one footing, no haves and have not’s -.

    It is high time that country show all these corrupt genes to show the exit door- irrespective of any party or person in the arena !

    Our political system only spoiling our county development. The person who having money and popularity they only become a political leader in our county. The knowledge person and well educated persons are mostly avoiding this type of leadership. With the aim of money only the political leaders roaming in our county no one having the mentality to service to people and nation. In my view all politicians are making the peoples fool only.

  2. Hello everyone.

    Yes I surly agree with that statement “Our politics system is reason for backwardness”. Because If any country is said to be developed means all the people in that country have to be like that, not only the some members. But in our country we have lot of resources, talented people, but we are still at the stage of developing country. For that one of the main reason is our corrupted politics. Why because many of our politicians come to the politics by thinking it as business. First of all they spend lot of money on elections time, after come to their respected positions they start collect those money with compound interest. Frankly speaking it our present politics.

    But we are not saying that it is the only mistake of politicians, it the main mistake of voters who vote for them, and doing them like that. First of all the mind set of the voter should be change, and they have to know about each and every person who are nominated for that particular post and give their valuable vote to the person who really do their best. Then only we can change our politics and surly India became developed country.

  3. Surely I can tell political system is also a main reason for India to be in still developing nation. Now we are adopting capitalism. It will not works for the people welfare. It works only for Indian economy. A individual can hold the property. Hence there has been excess amount of money among politicians. If we follow socialism, the private property will be demolished. As jawaharlal nehru rightly said, India will be a communist country on 2030.

  4. In our india, every policy contents in constitution and every law written in law books for keep it in racks. My frieds, we could not blaim on others. Because, good Society starts from good people. Are you sure, we are against the bribe/corruption. How many people are saying like that. My self no. In modern India, people need fulfill things quickly. To out come the circumstances, people don’t have the time to wait till the time. We just offering the bribes to Babus/officers to complete our work quickly. Though this exercise, spoil our society ourselves. One more example, government make a law for wearing helmets for two wheeler for their safety? More than 50% of the riders were not wearing the helmets. When cops are sudden caught, most of the people offering the bribe instead of fine. Tell me friends, if they were wear the helmets, cops never asking to show the required documents to ride two wheeler.

    In the streamlines, I saw one political exercise. Politicians were offering the one group of the people to vote him @ Rs 500/-. Voters are accepting and using for domestic purposes. My friends, if a politician has spent 100 crores for elections. What will happens think? definitely he try gain more than he expend. What happens, the Rs 500/- = we lose infrastructure, medical facilities, education etc, .

    If our idea of a good life or a fair life anyway, for everyone, is to respect, love and serve each other and meet our needs in a sustainable way, then this system (democracy and the monetary system) will never be able to do that since it was only designed to meet the needs of a few and ultra rich. Our problems are real and the methods currently used are unsustainable, irrelevant and obsolete. Never agree with the status quo, always question and proactively seek for solving problems just as God intended us to.

    Two more points i want to add my first point, is “are we asking from our soul regarding participation in anti corruption activity?” This is not a matter to speak inside, this is the matter to come up with practical thing. If we are talking about to choose a perfect leader, then our responsibility to aware those voters who don’t know who is good and who is bad, who don’t know who is educated and who is illiterate. Because each vote is important to elect the candidate. Now a days leaders are most depend on illiterate com, because they don’t ask more question, they are not having more argument. So this is our responsibility to awake them without any interest.

    Point no. 2 – are we honest at our level? If such type of question will come in each and every individual’s mind and they act upon it too, definitely INDIA will become Developed country. Just I want to share one example of Russian Naval Officer his rank was Captain 1st rank (Equivalent to Commodore in Indian navy) who was our instructor. He was not having any assistant to work, he was doing each and every work by his own. He was even not going for his personnel work during his class time. He was punctual and perfect in his duties without any ego. In other side one casual worker of Russia who has given some work, there is no need for supervision, they are working by there own and inform the concern person on completion. But in case of India, Is it there? Finally, when each and every individual will know there role for the society including higher and lower level person. There is no doubt we will be the leading country of the world.

    So friends, we have change ourselves first. Then we can change our society.

    Backwardness is the biggest problem that is hindering the growth of our country. Backwardness can be of any form of thoughts or economy. Most of the people believe that it is due to the bad political framework of our country, but it is not so. People are as much responsible for this as the government. Child marriages, girl education, female foeticide are still the most talked about topics in our economy. Malpractices like female foeticide and girl education is not limited to rural areas only but has spread its wings to most of the urban areas as well. Government which has been held responsible for the backwardness has banned child marriages, abortion and has criminalized them.Moreover free girl education has also been offered. As far as slow economic growth is concerned people indulge in all sorts of illegal activities to save taxes thereby picking from government pockets. People need to understand that its not only the government but they themselves are at fault.
