An election of change!?

 It would seem as if everyone is ready for the upcoming Lok Sabha election with great expectations and hopes for a positive result. But, what if things go out of control and the multitude goes berserk for the lust of money? Are we more concerned for today or tomorrow? Will there be happiness or grief waiting for the children of tomorrow because of our inability to stand and vote for the righteous and truthful government?

The hate and feeling of enmity instilled in our minds by various candidates against their opponents are daft because at the end of the show, we suffer relentlessly and they inherit the throne. As humans, we all have our own flaws and weakness but what I don’t understand is; “Why do we always keep voting for the same wanker when we can envision our pathetic future under their rule?” It is really encouraging to see various organizations and groups come together in the name of “Clean Election” by utilizing all their efforts and capabilities in enlightening the general masses on the outcome of good governance if we are honest and trustworthy voters.

I understand the reason of some commoners selling their votes because of poor financial status and their neediness to acquire their wants, but this does not portray everyone’s character, because for some, it’s all about money and their greed for evil purposes. So much has happened in the recent years when elections were held and most of us are perfectly aware of the mistakes we’ve committed in the past, yet fail to overcome these wrongdoings since old habits die hard (wouldn’t you say so?).

It is vividly understood and seen that the public are agitated, but their thirst for a better government lays unquenched even to this day. I write this to you readers so that it’ll serve you as a gentle reminder (everyone must be fed up by now) from stepping into the same minefield as you did in your bygone years. With high hopes and prayers shall we wait for the final result and that our dreams are fulfilled when we can proudly shout, “An Election of Change”.
