It has become a practice of our people, mostly among the older generation and somewhat among the younger generation to utter these words “Nothings going to become of this nation” (Is mulk ka kch nahi hone wala) as they refer to all the problems we are facing these days (electricity, terrorism and all). I can’t help thinking that why blame the nation when we individuals have never really done anything to protect it, to save it, to cherish it as our own. We have always taken it for granted, i mean think about it the food that we eat, the house that we live in, the education we are receiving are all possible because of the nation we live in.
We don’t even try to improve our nation to get rid of its little problems which we can on our own individual level like getting rid of pollution, not breaking any rules etc.
Something which i hate even more are people saying they want to migrate to another country, like there wont be any problems over there. The Japanese never talked about leaving their country when it was bombed in 1945, instead they worked hard to make it prosper and today it is one of the super powers of the world!
These words seem to whisper in my ears when i think about all this
“Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country“
– John F. Kennedy
We never think what we can do for this country and blame everyone else. Have we even educated one child that we talk about illiteracy in this country? Have we stopped others from polluting it that we talk about the cleanliness in other countries, Have we ever tried to support even just one family to eradicate poverty that we talk about beggary in the country. Have we ever woken up and realize that we are the people who will save the nation. The answer is NO!
Only traitors and losers condemn things which they themselves are doing. Yes other countries are powerful because their people are dignified and know how to make their country progress. Unless we try helping our country in reaching towards success, we will be doomed. Saying everyday that”This country is hopeless” is perhaps far more easier then actually trying to work for it and that’s the easy way out our people have taken.
