Rakesh Manchanda for BeyondHeadlines
We live in an unexplained world where poor people walk miles to earn food and rich people walk miles to digest food. We live in a society that is designed by intelligent planners who try to sell air travel less than our Railway travel and keeps the middle class happy. Pizza reaches home faster than an ambulance and Police.
We live in a system where decision makers in city make agro plans for villages and industry but never care to visit the sites at ground zero. We live in system where capital is worshipped but human capital involved is treated as dirt.
We live in a society where in order to produce in farms-factories, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing but demand to be worshipped as Economic Gods.
We live with our work systems where the company can terminate the services of an employee/partner/slave any time without any fair trial at the site of the work. Hire and Fire management policy protected by Governments is normal but no opportunity for victim to defend self needs support and future trend.
We live in a system where Bank loan which is a Public Money gets converted fast into a soft easy Private profit. False Board of Directors resolutions are popped up to match the bank loan requirement but in actual there is no participatory democracy.
We live in a system where grand plans and false declarations are given to fetch bank loans but no clear role and respectable amount is paid to the ground team and the contributors.
We live in a society where 99% are asked to trust the planners blindly and work harder without asking for more. Car loan @ 5% but education loan from a bank @ 12%. How and Why? Do not ask but think to see the links if possible.
We live in a nation where Rice is almost a dollar per kg or Rs.60/- per kg and the Sim Card for mobile is free. We live in Society where more than 50% have mobiles but more people go out for toilets. Where a millionaire can buy a cricket or football team instead of investing money in villages to generate more jobs.
IPL Cricket teams are auctioned at Rs. 3,300 crores and we are still a poor country where people starve for 2 square meals per day. Where the footwear, we wear, are sold in AC showrooms, but vegetables, that we eat, are sold on the footpath. Where we make lemon juices with artificial flavors and dish wash liquids with real lemon.
Farmer against farmer, technician against technician, manager against manager, worker against worker, director against director are pitted in the goal of few which allows making as much money as possible in shortest possible time. This senseless greed of 1% people is responsible for the global crisis, recession and conflicts.
Time running out for those 1% to accept a long pending `change` in the systems or disappear like their loot which is parked hidden in `tax heavens` and in temples. Did our Freedom Fighters sacrifice for this? Wake up; it may already be too late!
