It’s not about me,
it’s not about you.
It’s about the place we stay in,
the society we live in,
the systems we have!!

*I often wonder* when a mosquito bites us
why do I think of a repellant, why a coil or hit,
why don’t I have the courage to question my municipality?

*Why do I buy* water in a bottle?
*Why do I purify* water at my home?
Does the water bill say that the tap water is
only for washing clothes or having a bath?
Why don’t I get drinking water in my tap?

*Why should I pay* a toll tax
on every single black, nice looking road?
Why a basic road is not my right?

*Why do I buy* an inverter or dream of a generator?
Why don’t I get un-interrupted current in my wires?

*Why – the cricketer* who sold the ethics of game
sits in parliaments or come as experts on channels?

*Why someone known* for beating his wife and had charges of holding drugs is a celebrity to judge dance shows and all of us watch and clap too?

*Why is it that the* so called high profile tainted journalists
still run public shows and we all watch it?

*Why don’t I know* the fine on jumping red light or for not wearing a helmet but I am very well aware of power of 100 rupees, the cost of most of the traffic guys across the country?

*Why is a girl raped* in a roaming car in the capital of the country, almost every week and all that the government says is that girls should be careful?

*Why does the trial* and judgment of social activists just takes a few weeks but Raja, Raju, Reddy roam around !!

*Why even after killing hundreds* of people on road the blue line buses remained on roads? Do you know any city apart from the capital of your country where the city buses crushed people on a daily basis?

*Why didn’t we come on the roads* when someone made elephants of stones for thousands of crores rupees in U.P. where people still dig pits to sleep or die of hunger?

*Why a tainted, corrupt minister* is called to IIM and Academy for IAS and applauded unstopped on his desi style ?

It’s so easy to call someone corrupt but have we ever thought –

*The act of bribe starts by giving, not by taking*
it starts from me,
not from him,
so why don’t I look at myself first ?

*It’s time to come out, stand up*
… move ..
… do something..

Sitting in drawing rooms or discussing over a mug of beer will not solve anything..

Please remember our country does not need
thinkers any more,
we have enough of them..
what we need is action..
