“The grossest crime is to compromise with injustice and crime. Remember the eternal law: You must give; if you want to get!” – Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose

As the clock struck twelve on the midnight, a new dawn rose, bringing in new hopes for the bright and secure future for our country. For me, Independence Day might not be the day when one reminds the country of what one has achieved till now, but its the day when one reminds the country of what all issues are an obstacle to the country’s development. We hear about the glories everyday from our “lovely” politicians. If we hear it again on the anniversary of our independence, it won’t make any change. Discussing what we really need to work upon to make this country a better place to live in, there is no better day than Independence Day, I suppose. With a country that has so much to be proud of, there are streams we should be ashamed of; when compared to other countries, especially the ones which are tinier than India.

  1. Education– This is the root of all evil. According to the consensus of 2014, India’s overall literacy rate is around 74.04%. Now people might be thinking that we are ahead of our rival country Pakistan, which has a literacy rate of just 56.4%. Now this is what is called “Hallucinating Statistics”. If we look at the number of people illiterate in India and Pakistan, you will see that there are 103 million who are illiterate in Pakistan, while there are around 325 million illiterate people in India, three times the illiterate people in our “beloved” Pakistan. So you see, what we actually see as percentage are not actual statistics! Education can bring a deep impact on the society, as a whole. It is the shortest way to solve the problems existing in our country. Solve this, and surpass others.
  2. Health- “We have everything and we use nothing”. We have the rich Ayurveda, which has the capability of curing the most difficult of diseases. The best of all “Vaidyas”(one of them is Susruta Samhita) had taken their birth in this holy land “India” and we are still lacking in terms of malnutrition, immune system and hygiene. Take the example of Japan. After the country suffered the attacks of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the country decided to focus so much upon the health sector that now the country has been listed among the top countries in terms of health conditions. Even the life expectancy of Japan makes it to the top, earning it the title of a “Developed Country”.
  3. Society-

    “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourselves in the service of others”-Mahatma Gandhi

    With the country producing such great thinkers and genius people like Swami Vivekananda, the country is suffering from severe problems like dowry system, honour killing. I don’t know what do such people gain after doing such evilish things. Instead they lose all the honour and respect that took so much time for them to earn. The society needs to change its attitude (that could be me or you, anyone!) of having the judgemental attitude towards situations. We have cliched every odd situation as “human behaviour”. One person behaves selfish in some difficult time and people respond it as “natural human behaviour”. A monster, which does all right things in this world, still remains a monster. It would take him no time to gain back the monstrous behaviour because he couldn’t train his mind strong enough to control and not because its natural. So get up, rise and let us make this world a better place to live in!

  4. Economy- Although the GDP(Gross Domestic Product) has increased by 2.9% in past 3 years(which is quite good), there are many scams which has severely affected the economy of our country. Many of them include 2G scam, Commonwealth scam, Coal scam, Fodder Scam(In Bihar). These were the ones which had been revealed in front of the people. Who knows there might be some more scams which are even bigger than these! The politicians have become braver and braver and its our duty to show them the correct path and if necessary push them out of their seats. It is the politicians who must fear the people and not the people! The hike in grain prices is mainly attributed to black marketing of grain storage(They secretly store the grains and don’t sell them until there is a hike in the prices; which indeed earns them superb profits). Its the duty of the government to set up teams that ensure that black marketing does not happen in our country. Also its the duty of people to prevent such things happening in the society(Atleast in our locality!).
  5. Understanding the rights- The people have been given so many privileges to ensure an environment of justice and peace in the country, but not to misuse it; in anyway because then the people lose trust in the Judiciary. There have been so many cases where after years of jail and ill-treatment, the Judiciary comes to know that the person who was sent to jail was not the culprit. That is the paradoxical truth of the Indian Judiciary. With only some amendments, the constitution is similar to that when it was officially assigned! I mean, the world has completely transformed itself and still we follow that constitution. The constitution must be amended in accordance with the current time to avoid such errors and then only the people would be able to live without fear!

So today when we salute the country’s flag, we must visualize all the points again and pledge to contribute to atleast one of them.

Jai Hind! Jai Jawaan, Jai Kisaan!

The sanctity of the law can be maintained only so long as it is the expression of the will of the people!- Bhagat Singh(Translated)

“Why are most engineers turning out to be unemployed”

There are various factors which are leading to such problems of unemployment and lack of skilled enthusiasts.

1. The most important factor is the parenting system of this generation. There are only few parents who actually encourage undertaking what their children want from their lives. So they usually join engineering as their parents ask them to do so, and since there exists lack of interest for such students, the results are devastating and they turn out to be unskilled and unemployed engineers of our country.

Actually, such people cannot be entitled as engineers. I have read in the dgplug logs that student+degree does not mean you are an engineer.

2. The present education system which is encouraging rat race among the students. They literally put blinds around your eyes like in case of a horse and ask you to follow what they want you to. The system wants you to excel everywhere irrespective of which field you want to master.

And so the quote “Jack of all trades, master of none” has come into existence. This quote is exactly meant for the present generation. We don’t master in what we want, the system wants us to know everything, or else you will be out of the race! And you know children are still children and there is a suitable age to train them as adults.

So you see, every year “hum gadhe produce kar rhe hai, in the form of engineers” – quoted by Mast. Phunsukh Wangdu. And congratulations we could become a part of it if we stop learning, stop working hard for what we want.

3. There comes the next and the final point. The mentality of students. We want everything at the speed of light, money is what we want even faster than the speed of light. This generation can do anything for it. I have learnt while reading dgplug logs that if you write something in capitals, it means either you are stressing upon the words or you are trying to command. So again I quote, this generation can do ANYTHING for it, believe me and we cannot deny that. And so they enter engineering with a mindset that it will earn them enough money and these people usually turnout to be among the unemployed.

Your point of view is always welcome!
