In an effort to keep up with the increasing pace of development and advancement in every sphere, our lives are being forced to conform and keep pace with these progressions.
With this hastened pace of existence, an inevitable change is taking place- what is now being accepted as the “quick-fix” mantra or instant gratification- instant food, instant drink, instant relationships and instant solutions. Such changes, borne out of necessity rather than a fad, bring with it various radical changes that cater to the needs and conveniences, most remarkable being the spawning of a whole new sector of packaged foods and drinks that can be used in an instant.
The increasing incidences of adulterated packaged foods and drinks being detected and reported, with the concerned Government officials seemingly waking up from their long slumber is a welcome and positive sign of the increasing awareness of the general public of the realities facing our society at present. The unanimous condemnations and protests, while understandable and desirable, could also spell a premature demise of a nascent industrial movement in the State. We should spare a moment to delve deeper into the actual trials and tribulations that a few of our pioneering people from the State are facing to bring about a revolution of sorts by fighting against almost insurmountable odds to turn their dreams into reality. Taking the trodden path has always been fraught with dangers and uncertainties, especially in a State like ours where only negativity and pessimism thrives, not to mention the teeming parasites lurking in the shadows, waiting for any vulnerabilities and weaknesses of fellow beings to take advantage of.
The Government should take proactive steps and help out these struggling start-ups to flourish and show the way to an industrialized society instead of taking a negative and punitive stand. It would be stating the obvious to mention the fact that the laws, measures, plans and steps of the Government at present is not conducive for the growth of industry- from investment and financing problems to the utter absence of support and encouragement which is vital for a sustainable and viable industrial atmosphere.
