Re: [HumJanenge] Quick group poll: HONESTY OF POLITICIANS

Dear All

In India there are always agitated people.
In India it is always the time for revolution (peaceful or otherwise).

We have a safety valve for this. It is known as ELECTION. It
comes along once or twice every 5 years. Whatever chatter
we get about corruption, revolutions, stickers etc etc is
ultimately geared towards elections and politics. These are
macro developments to use as lollilops to keep citizens
tranquilised. Everyone who advocates mass / collective /
class actions is actually in the lollilop business.

At the end of the day, when an individual is affected, the
remedy for that individual must be direct action.

perhaps you can look on the upheavals in India and abroad on corruption (inclusive of money, power, silence, et all), from the top. you see there is a urge of the citizens to revolt on THIS system.  you can be one among those agitating and get lost in the melee.
we know the people ARE AGITATED.
But there is another path. to use this FORCE or ENERGY to channelise. remember the french revolution.  10 years ago somebody opined that the natural course of history woould be a repeat in India.
As Gandhi did raising his arm with a fistful of salt. the power of the agitated mood of the people can initiate a silent revolution that JP initiated but failed due to his ill health.
Now is the time for a peacenik Robespiere, the baker to emerge.
In a small way let us INITIATE a sticker war. with a suitable punch line. If everybody in streets offices or everywhere will start hitting the politicians and babus.
a draft sticker may read.  ONE LAW FOR ALL.
this can be rehashed.
over the road we may get more  ideas.
