Wake Up INDIA !

Baggout Branglina

” India is my country.

All Indians are my brothers and sisters.

I love my country and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.

I shall always strive to be worthy of it.

I shall give my parents, teachers and all elders respect and treat everyone with courtesy.

To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion.

In their well-being and prosperity alone lies my happiness.” 

When we were in school , we recited our National Pledge daily in assembly . Why ? May be our teachers & elders thought that cramming or mugging up repeatedly anything would make us believe in it . Did it make any difference ? Lets have a look ……..

India is my country

STILL 

1. Our emotions for our nation evokes only during Independence day / Republic Day or during Cricket match .

Wake Up INDIA !

2. We take a piece of paradise & convert it into a filthy hell . We keep our houses clean & rest all is not our problem . 

Wake Up INDIA !

3.  All problem has one universal cause ” This is INDIA .Yaha aaisa hi hota hai .” 

Wake Up INDIA !

All Indians are my brothers and sisters

EXCEPT 

1. North -East Indians .They don’t look like us .How can we treat them as Indian ? This is such a shameful behavior & disgusting habit.

Wake Up INDIA !

2. South Indian or Madrasi ( as they are moniker-ed ) – Purely on the basis of skin color , residents of South India are often made fun of . This shows the narrow mind set of people who can’t think beyond skin color .

3. Bihari or Bhaiya ( People from Bihar & UP ) – They are treated with indifference & hatred .

4. Girls & Women – Indian men safeguard their  mothers , sisters & daughter furiously but many  turn into leechers when they step out. They take pride in harassing girls & women . They forget that women from their families could also be facing this uglyness somewhere .

Wake Up INDIA !

I love my country and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage

So much that  1. We leave our marks on historical monuments . We don’t even spare the historical places that stand with pride to tell their tales . We ruin everything that is accessible to us .

Wake Up INDIA !

2. We pollute our ponds, wells,  rivers & other water bodies  in the name of religion .

Wake Up INDIA !

I shall always strive to be worthy of it

Sure by 

1. Littering /spitting /peeing  anywhere & everywhere . Using every opportunity to ruin this beautiful land .

Wake Up INDIA !

2. ” Destroying /misusing public property . After all they have come from our tax money” . This thought has embedded so deep down that we don’t understand that replacing or repairing these things would also be charged from our tax money .

Wake Up INDIA !

 

I shall give my parents, teachers and all elders respect and treat everyone with courtesy.

Excluding

  1. House help , community workers , subordinates & juniors
  2. Kids , if no one is watching
  3. Parents , if they don’t ‘UNDERSTAND ” your point of view
  4. Teachers , if they ask /interrupt / question your behavior
  5. Women , they must know their place .

To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion

As long as 

  1. This country prove to be fruitful & useful for you.
  2. Its people for more or less the same reasons

 

In their well-being and prosperity alone lies my happiness.

This line is perfect with a little change may be . Replace the words …….

In their well-being and prosperity alone lies my happiness.

To

In  my well-being and prosperity alone lies their happiness.

  We Indians have a wonderful history & heritage . We are blessed with most diverse landscape & fertile lands . We have natural resources in abundance unlike many other countries those have extreme living conditions . Still we are struggling to make our country a beautiful developed place . Call it our age old habits or passive attitude , we are fast destroying our land & its resources . We sing praises of other countries & its people .When ever we visit other countries , we wonder how well organised , developed & clean they are . But when return , we go back to our old ways of ignoring & destroying our land .

Its time that we shed our misconception ” Ye India hai.Yaha sab chalta hai.” India is US . We are the ones who make or break it . We must stop the blame game . Break the old habits & adapt new ones . Its Time to WAKE UP INDIA ! ”
