India today-The bottom line story

 Father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi once quoted “Intolerance, discourtesy and harshness........ are the taboo in all good society and are surely contrary to the spirit of democracy”. 

The country is witnessing its worst nightmare ever with untold miseries of injustice, discriminative policies, socio-economic and political disasters. The government inability in appreciating diversity and baffling the minorities interest is in the worst bucket list of every concern citizens. Sigh!.... democracy is doomed, it is aggrieved, it has become tools of the mighty, it has become odourless in the so called largest democracy of the world. Should I say, we are heading towards THEOCRACY? 
What couldn’t be more horrifying than to observe the gradual change of constitutional timidity into the armchair of communalism, partism and selfism?
The critical issues burning around the clock of the nation have become more excessive than the media could report in 24 hours. While the world parliamentarians are debating on “prosperity, peace and human development”, India is debating and fighting for the rights of cow in parliament. The world is uniting by “forgiving history” while India is digging more of ancient and medieval period to seek revenge of the past. While the world is doing charity to the strangers on the streets, the richest political elites of our country is stealing the daily meals of the poor. 
The outburst of citizens against undemocratic methodology of government of the day on all fronts is nothing but a crystal indication that the government has failed its volume manifesto of minimum government into minimum solution and maximum governance into maximum problems. Thus, there is a trust deficit multiplication in the so called good governance. 
It is a proud moment for the nation when the government said that it is triggering an ambitious stand to become the superpower of the world. But what’s next when it can’t comprehend thousands of menace in her own sickbed. 
Allow me to note some few indications of why our country have the largest number of poor population in the world with 28 percent as per Human Development Index 2019.
-Unemployment have jump to an unprecedented rate of 8.5 percent which is the largest in three years according to India today. 
-Women safety is still at the bottom of 133 rank out of 167 in the world. 
-India’s economy slumped to an over six-year low of 5 percent in the first quarter. 
-India has slips down 10 placed to rank 68th on global competitiveness index 2019.
 -Rape accused /Victims were gun fired without judicial trial. 
- Universities campus are no more safe from police teargas shells and brutal assualt. 
 -Citizens have no more liberty to fight against injustice but to be arbitrated under UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act). Is UAPA a brutal cleansing campaign against those who cries for justice and good governance? Is this the government commitment to provide law and order in the country by arresting and killing the innocent citizens? 
Failing to acknowledge the cognisanal of the reality will only bear more problems. India needs a statesmenship leader to demonstrate the true spirit of democracy who will protect minorities, respect secularism, ensure women safety and above all rule of law to prevail. 
India should no more become a place of criminal hubs, rape and pollution country. India should no more allow her children to go to bed hungry. India should no more allow the world to criticize her everytime everywhere. India should no more killed her innocent citizens when one walk off to the streets for justice. India should no more love illegal foreign immigrants more than her own citizens based on religion. Enough is Enough.......... India is more than what we think. For once let’s open up our arms, shake hands with our neighbors and conquer the world with peace and harmony. May God Save India
