Be the change you want to see

 

If whining were made an Olympic sport, some of our Chakmas would win gold medals by the dozens.

If we see the leaders as evil, we are merely seeing a magnified reflection of the evil within us. It shows our cowardice – of not accepting fault of our own making. It shows our apathy in not doing sufficient enough to improve the system or the society.

In Chennai, a 70+ year woman was tired of the repeated flooding in her area. You known what she did? She fixed the problem.  Despite heavy rains, this Thiruvanmiyur road saw no flooding; here’s why!

In Bihar, a coal worker was sad that his wife died due to lack of proper roads. You know what that guy did? He built an entire road by himself. Read about: Dashrath Manjhi

In Assam, a teenager noticed that snakes were dying due to heat when they got washed by the floods. You know what he did? He created an entire forest. Read about: Jadav Payeng

The only way our society can be changed is by *us* taking action. If we are such a weakling to act, we have little reason to complain. Society and Nations are not built with complaints and whining. They are built on top of hard work where everyone takes part in community building.

You don’t get society and order handed to you on a plate. You have to take part in building it. You take one thing that is most interesting to you and each one takes up the activity, we can create wonders.

Take part in activities like what The Ugly Indian does: The Ugly Indian

 

What did you do to your society/community/road today? If the answer is negative, it is you who are the big problem not the leaders and the politicians. And if you all really start acting, no leaders/politicians on earth can stop your combined force.
