RISE INDIA RISE

sucess

India is witnessing an uprising that has not been seen since the struggle for independence. There is a nationwide outpouring of the people, of their intolerance to corruption, an open questioning of the integrity of their leaders. Thousands have willingly joined Anna Hazare in his fast against corruption. T V channels are fixed on long queues of people streaming into the Ram Lila grounds to join Anna in his crusade.

One wonders why this issue has a nationwide consensus. After 64 years of independence, do we really enjoy freedom socially and economically? The father of our nation and his contemporaries dreamed of a nation that, in the words of Rabindranath Tagore, “has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls”. The gap between the have’s and the have not’s has never been so wide. While many in our country live in the underbelly of poverty, the upper classes evade payment of taxes and resort to shameless consumerism. They evade taxes with the assistance of policymakers, accountants and greedy government officials. Citizens of this country have been bearing this silently, quietly letting their revolt simmer within them.

Corruption has been a road block to our progress. Embezzlement, scams amounting to crores of rupees, and Wiki leaks exposing huge amounts of money stashed away in Swiss banks have burned the headlines of newspapers for months. The people are fed up and have risen in one voice.

In the 1970’s, Jayaprakash Narayan’s people movement was very similar to Anna’s but finally sidetracked into becoming the Janata Party. It would do Team Anna well to guard against evolving into yet another party but stay focussed on the need of the people for responsible, transparent and upright governance.

It is a matter of pride to watch youngsters resort to quiet and non violent protest to voice their protest and I commend Anna and his team for handling it well. The fact that the nation has risen in one voice is a ray of hope, a hope for a better tomorrow; one in which honesty and integrity shines through.

the massive support to Anna Hazare evidencing the people’s thought and feeling against corruption. Our country is in the 4th place among the world’s highly corrupted countries. No one is showing braveness to speak about the deposits in Swiss banks. Nothing will happen, if Anna’s movement will change to a political force. But the essential thing is ” not to deviate from the original path”
What do you say on this view?

Thanks for the comment. Experience indicates that once a movement turns political, it is forced to accomodate so many interests and hence in turn, lose the original aim.

As you rightly put in, the intolerance factor has created a mistrust among public on our governance. Its time for politicians to give way to leaders…who can take India to her destiny which she deserves !! and This is the right opportunity for everyone of us to deliver our judgement.Never undermine our constitutional responsibility to the country..Support the movements that helps us to upgrade our governance and lets voice that ITS TIME FOR CHANGE !!

Engineering conglomerate’s Larsen &Toubro Limited’s Flagship unit at Hazira works ,near Surat, we make many things like Nuclear &Aerospace equipment ,super high pressure reactors, Well head Platforms for oil exploration, sophisticated Defence equipment etc from intrinsic materials to high precision within the stringent quality requirement and demanding delivery commitments. In short we make things that make India proud. As head of Total Quality Management and IT, I could bring in many attitudinal innovative processes ,with the active support of TQM Council, employees and other stake holders.
When I returned to Kerala , I started sharing my experiences on TQM in schools and Colleges. I worked with Kochi Corporation to get massive Fund for Solid Waste Management under JnNURM–a visionary environmental centre was planned in Brahmapuram. As Genenal Secretary of Karikkamuri Rs.Assn (2004-2008),under President Dr. Fr. James Aerthayil and Fr.Jose Chittilappilly, I could make Karikkamuri area as the cleanest area and get the prestigious award from Kerala Police. But my experience in Kerala is very disappointing due to the negative mindset and attitude of vested interests ,fooling the so called educated masses. I found myself as a failure in this scenario and painfully withdrew from Social work.
You were the only person, I repeat, the only person, I found with an L&Tite Hazira quality culture. I started following up every thing which appear in the Media. My admiration grew further when I found that you were a man of action like many of us in L&T.A small action is better than thousand words.
After reading your article “Anna Mpvement:Our politicians have let down the people” in THE NEW INDIAN EXPRESS,KOCHI dated 26 th August 2011,I thought of sending this letter acknowledging the magnificent service you are doing for the Society in a very difficult Kerala environment.
Wishing you good luck

with warm regards,
