I feel so shocked at the kind of persons we have who make laws for us to follow. It was so disturbing when many of them made statements on issues of sensitive nature. The kind of utterances made regarding rape were indicative of their thinking power or attitude. Most of them do not seem to give a
hoot about communal colour their speeches or remarks have. Now comes the last straw – physical violence. There are ways and means to lodge your complaint about any issue including standard of food but forcibly making someone eat it is a crime. I am not talking of religion of the victim. It is a barbarian way to show your dislike for the food served. And even more shocking is the support or justification given by their higher ups. How would they feel if they are forced to swallow sub-standard medicines reportedly given at many government run hospitals or made to travel in train which is overcrowded even in reserved bogies by unauthorised passengers – many of whom are ticketless? But again are we not the ones to be blamed to send such persons to be our lawmakers?
I am at a loss to find words to say how sad I feel at the loss of so many young lives in school bus accident which happened due to sheer negligence of the driver. I would hold school authorities also responsible for this. I doubt if many school authorities ever are serious about the calibre of persons they take on rolls. This is proved by the heinous rape of just 6 years old girl by an instructor of a school. I have seen many school cabs and even buses here which flout traffic rules. Jumping red light is just normal for many of them. Should the schools not have proper check on persons they take on board as well as have regular inculcation of proper behaviour and also carry out random checks? Should the parents of all students not get involved in keeping an eye on activities of the schools?
I strongly feel that we can ensure that suicide is avoided by those who contemplate it. One who is under such pressure will most likely show signs. I am referring to suicide committed by a young girl who could not become an Airhostess due to her being underweight. I feel her close ones could have observed her behaviour and understood her tendency so as to counsel her themselves as well as by qualified persons. Should we all not keep a keen eye on those we know to judge if they are under any unwanted duress?
How I wish we all could do something to get over such incidents!
