This is my personal tryst with car-ruption enroute Madras from Bengaluru. If you know what i mean by car-ruption, i dont want to spell it completely as i hate even spelling it and i’am quite sure most of you would also be hating this word which is most sought after debatical topic in india which only comes to lime light when some thing big like 2g scam happen in india, other wise we are too busy with our own stuff to even care about this word.
So for that car-ruption thing to hit media or become a hot topic we need some thing big to happen like 2g or coal scam so on and so forth.Let me jump into my own experience.
It was happy saturday that day, weekend which is the most looked after day for me and many other professionals who get a leave from office and which most of the people spend in a good way.Everything was fine till that night, had mast sleep, chat wid frnds good food and all. But then suddenly got a news of accident of my near ones and that near one was shifted to chennai(Madras).I had no other option but to hurry going there.
Took an auto, sighting my urgency auto walla charged more than meter. Then came near bus, this government bus conductor got me and handed over 350 rs ticket for 600 rs, i had no other option but to take and that bus was not worth the amount that i was paying for its seat, then early morning was startled by seeing that a person(vendor at bus stop) who was speaking in telugu( with his friend) till then, when i asked( for bus no.) said politely that he dont know telugu,that was an indication that i landed in chennai(Madras) where people are so much concerned or centric about only tamil and no other language.
Then this continued, bus walla in chennai again looted me sighting the urgency.things continued and i reached near to my near ones.
Here I(used in column till now) can be any one (you, me or any one).We are often in a hurry to get our things done in a very fast way no matter how much money it costs which is unfortunate.When the urgency is in terms of medical, its ok but we are accustomed to such an extent that even for our own birth certificate we have to pay more than 4 people a token of appreciation(Curse-car rutpion).for our pass port, license so on and so forth we have to gift many people though we have everything set with us.
There are certain questions which confuses me a lot, for which there is no certain answer that i have, some questions being,
* Why dont government track car-ruption well, isn’t here a single leader who can address this question.
* how much money do you car-ruption takers need, why do you loot people.
* Why there isn’t a right forum setup by government for us to post regarding car-ruption.
* why do people hesitate to lodge a complaint for the same.
* Why do we normal people hate any relation ship with police? why there is no faith process between police and we.
I have certain suggestions for the same for government:-
Setup a toll free number across india where people can call any time and lodge a complaint against persons and the important thing being activeness from part of government to take fast n strict actions.
NOTE:- May be this is not a right forum for such topic but then this is talk by chance.
