Let us thank our corrupt parliamentarians, and blame ourselves. Anything else will be sheer hypocrisy
There has been, once again, a great amount of breast-beating about our parliamentarians.
My views, from my FB comments:
Our tragedy is that we have too many "super-smart", "super-honest" people who are fit only to criticise but to never SHOW others how things are to be done. Our problem is our Kiran Bedis and the like. Not our MPs. The country would be doomed if we only had Kiran Bedis and the like.
My view is very clear – that India SURVIVES as a single nation purely because of our democracy, and because our parliamentarians, despite their weaknesses, are committed to peaceful change. These parliamentarians need not be worshipped. They can be criticised and should be. But at all times it must be acknowledged that it is these people who have held India together and taken it this far. Give credit where it is due.
These people are not responsible for the PATHETIC educated class of India that can't come together and fight them at the hustings.
99 per cent of India's failure lies with the educated classes who SIMPLY HAVE NO ABILITY TO WORK TOGETHER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Since December 2007, when FTI was formed, we have barely managed to get more than 100 people together, and many have become defunct. The educated LACK THE BASIC DISCIPLINE to make a difference. They DON'T COUNT.
Why blame MPs???
Look in the mirror. The problem is staring in your face!
