Baghidari out - Accountability In
Think Tank Delhi based - Baghidari, no way forward:
Baghidari out - Accountability In / Tittering Baghidari - Maturity
emerges through Introspection
Ruled are inevitably subservient to Masters. Like we were for long
years during Colonization. Likewise our ill trained, came into Power
by befooling Our 60% Illiterate, additionally Rigging votes by Foul
means. They also get intoxicated once in the Hot Commanding Seat.
Having also surrounded themselves in this process with a bunch of
sycophants who feed their ego constantly - are blinded to ground
reality. Singing India Shining, look at the stock market.
Chamchagiri gets enhanced & leads to distorted State Policies.
Lend a Hand to gone astray, by wise in society, through introspection
has inevitably been the prerogative of the thinking mind. The time
has come to analyze this fašade of doing larger Good though what
has been termed as Baghidari.
State is the Collector of Taxes whereby it is supposed to deliver
Services & well being to its Tax Payers. Lets take a Holistic
view of Delhi & its obvious to even a newborn child that the
State has failed miserably in its Duty.
Child swaps & sale, are not unknown in our dirty filthy Public
Hospitals, cows on the Roads compelling users to express Humility
was in place now reluctantly counter acted by offering Rs 2000 per
Head for catching the obstruction - traffic is chaotic & is
a hair raising experience for all users.
Kids compelled to go to school sandwiched in Matadors & closeted
Rickshaws is a disgusting sight.Chaotic Traffic even in Rajdhani.
The Police instead of Policing now indulge in Extortion & without
mercy or consideration is inhuman as one saw through their brethren
in neighbouring Gurgoan from wherein lot many descend on Delhi.
Their perks are derived from haftas, as brought to notice &
reminded by a prominent news channel referring to Dance bars in
Mumbai. All know of their daily extortion by
providing protection to Law Breakers & encroachers.
Baghidari is the last straw to the Drowning state of Governance
by NCT - by the State it's a clear act of abdication of Responsibility.
Not at all done with any grace but its quite like Comforting a person
nearing their end in ICU - stating that the oxygen is on its way
as the store keeper & Management slipped up - mostly ending
in a tragic end. Which is also soon
forgotten as next slip ups over power - the one yesterday.
Why should an upright Citizen be seeking small change - crumbs from
its Elected Representative? - Even Councilors, ill trained &
many have come through as Lawbreakers & offenders whilst Demolitions
Like a tamed dog seeks the indulgence & benevolence of its Master
around a Dining table. This is jarring.
By getting oneself Photographed alongside the Collector, Magistrate,
Councilor, Minister, scamster Civil Servant was like creating History
- the photograph occupied Pride of Space in the Drawing Room. This
weakness Particularly amongst our own fellow Citizens is being exploited
no end. It must stop. How?
Should the State be committed to corrections now - it must then
get Watchdogs & Social Auditors - someone Watching. This is
on the cards - Mahendra Veds article on 19 July 05 in Times of India
is pertinent, supports & recommends. Public Affairs Centre,
Bangalore brought out a book in 2002 - Holding the State to Account,
Citizens Monitoring in Action by Dr Samuel
Paul. This is what is required. Think Tanks also recommend likewise
- also Proof, the Janaagraha correct Civic Services disciplining
Thus far Baghdadi has comforted Sycophants - it must be steered
sensibly to get out of the distortion & divide it's created
amongst committed. Clearly we have to look at the larger interests
of Society & not let our elected get away with hood winking
the honest Taxpayer.
NCT Govt is also today seen as fallen flat like a punctured Tyre
in its unworthy Partnership with a known discredited Discom. The
whole Electricity loot today engages intelligent minds like never
Heads will role as facts emerge discrediting the vast uncalled for
publicity by Rajdhani & Yamuna nesting within Vote bank politics.
Citizens Voice, like never before - today seeks Accountability,
Transparency & refuses to be shortchanged any longer, even when
they see their State Closeted in rather compromising comfort zones
with Powered businessmen known for deceit & manipulating the
State Machinery. It's also seen as the Last straw of corrupt decaying
Governance, GenNext & Senior Citizens now counteracting the
same with moves towards Ethical upright behavior. Churning the rot
to public view by spirited young Journalists also getting proactive
like never before.
Getting applaud from Superannuated Bureaucrats in UN & World
bodies Inconsequential - yet another - you pat my back, we pat yours!
- whilst Tax paying citizens suffer. Quite like Honest pay
for dishonest theft of Electricity in Delhi, whilst CEA, NCR Govt
& DERC turn a blind eye.
The Failures in Governance being highlighted by respected Sh Gurcharan
Das in his Tara Ali Baig Memorial Lecture on 8 Aug 05 at IIC, N
Sensible, amongst us, understand that Befooling through Baghidari
is clearly on its way out. Being thrown out of the window. Citizens
want the State to perform as Governance is in the pits & will
only Lend a Hand on equal terms not as unequal partners.
