What I think about ‘My’ Government?
When I want people to have faith in the government and stop criticizing someone, who deserves much better treatment, I give them reference to my own place, and what I see around -
ROADS GETTING BUILT
> 4-laned roads with capability to handle Aircraft-landings in Kharagpur-Baharagora-Balasore section, in construction.
> Main Road’s repair(I don’t need to justify who made that road, because I already have had a conversation with the people who were making the roads)
HOUSES & TOILETS FOR THE POOR -
> In Baharagora Block itself, total houses(built or are in construction) is in summation — over 3500[by the government].
STREETLIGHTS FROM THE PANCHAYAT’S -
In my own village, and countless villages I am going to(be it any state), I see — street lights also in the rural areas.
CHANGE IN MINDSET -
> Today, is Diwali and I can see people use a lot less crackers, just to avoid pollution, although there is pollution, but the growth has been slowed down.
> You see new innovations generated in the Indian Startup Industries, it’s just because the government is getting out of the way and making the path smoother, that is how Silicon Valley also emerged,
> You see children telling their parents to avoid making this world ‘dirtier’ and follow the Swacch-Bharat Campaign.
There’s a lot more, but let’s limit it here for today,
And when people say — Why the hell do you support the Government’s Workflow? I do have answers like these.
