In the present times where unnecessary issues are given extra weightage or extra attention by social media houses and the news channels, it has become so important for the youth, for the country men to open up their eyes and start discussing and focusing upon the Vital issues.
Now, what are these vital issues? Some learned people will argue that vital issues for different people are altogether different so the person writing such an article can affix some vital issues for the entire society. This article should be read upon as a piece of informative writing that will be helpful for the nation, for the economy and for the society.
At present, after the slowdown that lasted in the economy in the last quarter of the year 2019 and in the starting of 2020, the economy has really survived a lot. And as the economy was ready to get up and move upon with sane speed as earlier, Corona virus came into the scene and turned the situation even more pathetic. The Nationwide lockdown that happened in the country for slowing down the speed of the virus, turned to be an evil for the employment of daily-wage workers. Workers and laborers are thrown out of the job and due to no work; the unemployed population of the nation is falling into the dark ocean of Depression and Anxiety.
On July 1, 2020, the Railway Ministry announced that 151 trains in 109 pairs of routes will be operated by private sectors. The vital issues like privatization of Indian Railways are needed to be discussed by the youth and the government should be asked by the youth that what are the motives and the vision of the government behind this privatization.
In the monsoon session of the parliament, there was no question hour in the parliament. Question Hour is the first hour of a sitting session of India’s Lok Sabha devoted to questions that Members of Parliament raise about any aspect of administrative activity. The concerned Minister is obliged to answer to the Parliament, either orally or in writing, depending on the type of question raised. Now there will be no one to question the government in its proceedings and actions. It’s like a free hand to government to o anything, anytime without anyone to question it.
The Corona patients are worst hit during these days. The hospitals are not admitting the new patients by arguing the unavailability of beds or ventilators. The middle and lower middle class has to run from one hospital to other but nobody cares because the politicians and the rich people are sitting in their air conditioned cars and offices. Who cares?
Same goes for the fourth pillar of the democracy, the Media. At present, almost 90% of the News channels are focusing upon their TRPs by showing news on unnecessary topics and silly rhyming news. It’s like a brain wash of the people that the media is doing by showing such pathetic news, that too one sided. The news channels and media houses never get tired of praising the governments in power and always news that is in the right of the ruling party. It, like the news has become so toxic to hear that even some people are planning to close their TV sets jut because of the disgusting and useless news debates and all the noise that occurs on the News channels.
No one is at present talking about the issues discussed above. Whether people have started fearing that discussing such issues will make them unwanted by the so called ideal society at present.
Hence, it is an alarming situation for the Indian youth and get up and hold the command of the Nation so that the basic essence of India should not get lost just in the name of advancements and important(in actually silly and unimportant) news. It’s the time to save the nation and the natural heritage too. It’s the time to save India from being psychologically enslaved, politically subjugated and culturally disarmed.
Healthy politics is needed to be played by the leaders so that they can build a new India even stronger with stronger beliefs and ethics.
It’s the time to wake up India and stand for the rights of the nation and the rights of the society.
