let us discuss some common issues: -
a) traffic jams: - take a example of New Delhi, India's Capital. People are really good at heart or large at heart as saying " Delhi dilwalo Ki". people here are a little bit shows what they belongs. So, instead of travelling / commuting in public transport (DTC/ Metro), used to take their own vehicles. Result: traffic Jams.
b) blaming Government: -
a) here I remember a little thought by our Past President Mr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam: " people are really careless when its come to follow the rules set in India. They really don't thing a second before throwing garbage in front of their own house rather in garbage box or in the morning or evening generally have a walk with their pets. they let pie the pets on the road and get away. If the same thing they have to do in other country then will have to carry a bag to collect the waste of pets. We follows blindly the rules of other countries but not ours."
b) election: We, the People of India elect our representatives for the largest democracy in the world. At the end of the day, people enjoy this day as any holiday in the calender and less bother to vote. But something happened like 26/11, kargil, etc, we start blaming the impotency of the system (intelligence failure, lack of willing of leaders to act on the issues whatever you want to say). So, it just like a vicious circle. (people --> elect leader--> breaucrats--> people).
