Why Am I Writing?
I’m Sandeep Narayan Shelke, BE Computer Engineer, from Pune University, Maharashtra, Bharat.
Though I’m a student of technical field but it never lured me. For last 4 years, that means from my Graduation year, I’ve been fighting with myself for quitting the current field of study and join either Political Science or Rural Development, because it was the time when I started realising broader prospects of life which made me aware of grave problems around me. Especially Farmer’s suicide (1,80,000+ farmers committed suicide in last decade), Corruption, Unemployment, Illiteracy, Terrorism, and many more. The list of issues my nation, Bharat Mata, faces is endless and growing like a bamboo tree.
I’m a son of farmer which I’m proud to be. Being a son of farmer I learned the art of giving in my childhood. But it’s only these recent years (2003 afterwards) when I realised the power of giving. But the giving attitude has forced farmers to commit suicide as the politicians and citizens of Swatantra Bharat never understood their responsibility of giving back in lieu of what they received (looted) from farmers. The food producer of this nation (Bharat) is in a grave danger, because of Government Policies, Natural calamities, negligence by fellow countrymen, lack of manageent and illiteracy (I’m not a scholar or researcher but I feel this way).
When started studying the cause of all these problems I realized that somewhere in the past Bharatiya Politicians adopted the wrong path and the country suffered i.e. the path of socialism. In the name of socialism Neharuian politics started killing the public interest, depriving citizens of their freedom and substituting it with Nehru’s interest. So the problems started for farmers (were there before independence as well but under colonial rule what would have expected) and this time around enemy is from within us. Around mid 1990s the farmer’s crisis rose beyond suppression and then the suicide spree erupted like lava. By government records since 1997 more than 2,50,000 number of farmers committed suicide (till 2011) and still this news is no news because Rahul Gandhi becoming PM was more important than farmer’s life. Every political party (there might be some exceptions by accident) and prominent leaders of this country were enjoying the fruits of democracy (mobocracy) and were busy feasting the farm produce by the farmers. Dalal street dalals were busy trading the farm produce in commodities market by sitting in AC. These dalals don’t even know how much time it takes to ripen the crop, what is the cost of the seeds and how much debt the farmer incurred but they will quote the price by own logic.
So the question arises what the hell Govt. is doing? Government is busy acquiring land for SEZs, Private Builders, Rohul Gandhi endorsement, using tax-payers money to publicise self-interest, naming the various tax-payer funded schemes after the names of Gandhi-Nehru family (as if like there is no one else worth it), created more and more bureaucratic systems so that corruption will continue and many such corruptions. If such is the case why media and citizens are quite? What is stopping the good people from doing the job? Why the (well educated, barring exceptions) children of the farmer don’t want to work for them? What is it which is killing us (Bharatiyas) for many centuries?
“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing”.
Such and many other questions have inspired me to break out and do something which can bring the much needed change and ignite the like-minded souls for the duty in the honour of Bharat Mata. Problems would never end if we just talk about this as drawing room argument, but will flourish if we maintain to do so. So I decided to act and write as much as I can. While walking these lines I started searching for like-minded companions and could connect with some (like Shantanu Bhagwat, Sanjeev Sabhlok and others).
