We got Modi-fied!

The below-mentioned views are totally personal views of the person writing these views, and that person is me. So anybody who’s reading this blog has a mental block to take other people’s viewpoint can stop reading it and can continue with their amazing life.

So talking about the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 of India, which is one of the most talked about thing right now in India because of an iconic man the Prime Minister of India Mr Narendra Modi. The man who made the youth of this country talk about politics. The man who is not only revolutionary but also a visionary.

Being called as a cheater who tampered the EVM machines to win the elections, which is equivalent to questioning the Election Commission of India.

Or being named as a traitor for Pulwama Attack in recent times. https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/narendra-modi-pakistan-match-fixing-says-congress-leader-bk-hariprasad-on-pulwama-attack-2004503.

This guy faced it all and stayed calm and focused towards his goal and look he is our Prime Minister again. I wholeheartedly congratulate Mr Narendra Modi for winning the Lok Sabha Election 2019 and becoming our Prime Minister again for the next 5 years.

As a voter and a taxpaying citizen whose vote just got counted in the epic winning of BJP in Lok Sabha Elections 2019 and a believer of change and development, I have few concerns for this country that I expect my PM to take a look into and work upon.

POLLUTION: Its one of the most overlooked and worrying topic of our day to day lives today. This state of pollution in India is just not concerning but also a life-threatening concern right now.  Read more how we top the charts of being the most polluted cities in the world at https://www.indiatoday.in/india/story/gurugram-most-polluted-city-in-the-world-delhi-most-polluted-capital-greenpeace-report-1470584-2019-03-05

RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF RELIGION: We all know BJP has an image of being a religion-oriented party but I see you as a PM of my great country, not as any religious fanatic, and that’s what all my fellow countrymen should see you as too. India is the world’s largest democracy, and we are proud of our rich heritage and diversity. As a peace-seeking citizen of India, I demand freedom of religion. All religions should be treated and respected with equal respect and love. Which means invest money in the betterment of alive humans of the country rather than some supernatural force that we haven’t seen in reality.

RIGHT TO EQUALITY: Reservations! Reservations quotas should be provided there where its need not based on your castes or tribes. It should benefit the unprivileged and differently abled. India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and more than 65% below the age of 35. A lot of talent does not get a chance just because they do not fall under the reservation quota, which widely affects our employment rate.

UPDATED EDUCATION SYSTEM: Better infrastructure, revised syllabus, an improved method of primary education. Which should include comprehensive and better sex education, awareness about poor sanitation, Human development and gender empowerment. It should consist of more practical development of young talent, not just the written knowledge in books.

CORRUPTION: As they say, charity begins at home. So yeah, this is something that we all need to take responsibility of not just the Prime Minister. So as a responsible citizen, I take a pledge to not contribute to this. Just as all of us should take responsibility to work on it together and get rid of this bug called corruption from the system.

BETTERMENT OF AGRICULTURE SECTOR: Every now and then we see a lot of farmers opting for suicide or crying for help, which honestly breaks my heart. Agriculture is the most crucial sector of the Indian economy. The Indian agriculture sector accounts for 18 per cent of India’s gross domestic product (GDP) and provides employment to 50% of the countries workforce. Put more money in the development and restore India’s largest sector.

So these are the few things that me a 27-year-old voter who voted and contributed in your win in the Lok Sabha Election 2019 expect from my Prime Minister.

Remember Mr Modi, the higher the win, the bigger the responsibilities.

Jai Hind!

What’s your religion- Indian!

Sitting in front of the idiot box (television, that’s what I call it) having a conversation with my father over the current situation of our country’s religious feuds, I realized one thing. His views were very typical being a Hindu (in India) about how things should be different according to religions which can be seen in recent debates between our older generations. They apparently happen to be our MLAs, Ministers or any current political figures in recent times (Mostly, though it is changing with time).

However as a millennial I see lot of changes and up gradation in the thoughts of my generation’s people. When I meet new people what’s their background, where they belong to, what’s their religion doesn’t matter to me. But it does bother our older generation in a way. When my father says he doesn’t want to eat the meat which has been butchered by some other religion’s person, it disheartens me.

When he supports our religion over other’s it does hurt; it’s not that he disrespects any religion, it just he finds his better which I figure they were taught when they were young. I don’t blame him or his thinking and values but I do question them. By the way we do get into debates which later turns into a fight and I get left furious and my father laughs it off.

I am not here to put their view point down, but all I want is to upgrade their thinking. India is a beautiful country with a fusion of multi-cultures. We are a proud nation of diversity. Then why not the older generation understands it. Why everybody wants to divide the nations on the basis of religion and castes. Why are we creating fuss and slaughtering each other in name of religion? The older generation needs to understand that we all are equals now. We don’t need this.

We don’t want Ram Mandir over Babri-Masjid instead make the temple next to the mosque, so that we both pray together. Our freedom fighters died for a free independent India where everybody lived peacefully. Don’t create a line within us let us live with the peace that we want. The last thing any Indian would want in their lives would be hatred for one another.

We have better concerns to get worried about pollution, population, poverty, crimes and the list goes on. The last thing in my day to day schedule would be to read about the unacceptable speeches or comments that our politicians makes to provoke on the basis of religions and castes. All I want to say that this will not stop the evolution of thoughts regarding the equality that has been in us. All I can remember all these years is “Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Isai apas mein sab bhai bhai” (Hindu, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians we all are together). Jai Hind!
