Hue & Cry...Whether India is Honey Bee or Bharat Mata

Hello All, all of you must be watching a media debate on Honey Bee Vs Bharat Mata on almost all the television channels across the country since yesterday...I found it a bit ridiculous [though some of you may differ on this topic] to spent so much of energy on the plain statements of two politicians. I think we have much more important and serious issues to be pondered over and  for through discussion. This shows that Indian electronic media still revolves around individual personalities. Though, individual thinking matters a lot in any democratic system or say in any type of political system e.g. an individual thinking of Mr Hitler affected whole world, Gandhi's individual charisma drove India's Freedom struggle,Mr Nelson Mandela's thought process affected the Africans yet too much discussion on such topics may not yield substantive results as it may not reflect the entirety of any individual thinking or his/her thought process.
      There has to be focus on some more important and relevant issues which are affecting Indian masses such as rising cost, inflation,corruption,crime,gender disparity, malnutrition, poverty, pollution, drought, unemployment,etc. There seems nobody to think about the solutions of these problems. In fact, I wondered that there is no street level demand also for these problems barring of -course some sporadic responses/Dharnas here and there. People of India are so tolerant that they ignore everything thinking that they can't do anything for exp. in one locality road must be full of pot holes but no body seems to go for dharnas/morcha against municipality or PWD engineers for repair....same is the case with electricity, water supply,health infrastructure,etc. Until and unless there is demand for these things,supply will not be there [ It's simple demand-supply equation]....All politicians,common people,officers must synergies for the development of this country. There are numerous job avenues can be created...if government really wants to remove poverty and unemployment, then by merely providing unemployment allowances or NREGA will not work. There should be a drive to first fill all the vacancies in the government departments be it police,civic or PSUs. After that, there should be intense drive to train qualitatively the work force which is less educated through ITI or any other mode. There should be drive to organise the un-organised sector. This will definitely improve wages,quality and supply.For e.g. almost every middle class and upper class requires domestic help. This sector is highly un-organised and full of exploitation. This sector can be organised with well trained work force. This will improve the image of domestic help and will propel as full fledged career options just like hotel management professionals.
   In short, issues are numerous which can be elaborated and discussed upon. If we all participate in such endeavour then the debate on Honey Bee Vs Bharat Mata  will loose its relevance and importance....keep on blogging...
