A detached and impersonal observation of the present developments around us strongly suggests an increasingly hardened tussle between a section of the society who are starting to assert their own natural freedom and spontaneity of right to life without the enforced support of any individual or group on the one hand and a group, while acutely aware of the disillusionment being increasingly felt by the long intimidated public, still conveniently ignore the subtle changes since the outgoing social order primed them to be smooth opportunists living off on the fear and insecurity of the common public who have been bearing the brunt of the undeclared war between the Government and the self declared emancipators of the society. The society is starting to wake up to the sordid reality behind the slogans and show of concern by the opposing parties who have been hemming in the collective enthusiasm and liberties for so long. This is a very positive and necessary turnaround- a breakthrough of sorts. Fear of physical harm has been the one driving force behind the relentless search for improvements ever since the evolution of mankind which has continued till the present day. Yet this very inherent feeling of insecurity has been used by a reckless and inconsiderate few to take advantage of others in various ways. Realizing the things that needs to be done inspite of the dangers posed by such threats and intimidations has made the society to take calculated risks and step up the efforts to progress and prosper. Fortifying our minds against such unwanted distractions and instead focusing on the tasks at hand, not only to sustain ourselves but also to make the future that little more efficient, developed and safer should be our common goal. All of us have a huge stake in this line of thought. Aberrations and exceptions notwithstanding, a concerted effort would bring about a desirable chain reaction of help and cooperation and sense of togetherness. Most of us are still wary of the next person and critical of the opinions of the rest of the communities. We all need to step out of this mental cocoon and try to reach out with sincerity and goodwill. The response will almost always be more pleasant and positive than we expect it to be. We only need to open up our minds and reach out in good faith. This is so much more necessary for those who are still harbouring hatred and revenge, their precious efforts and manpower being diverted towards scheming other’s downfall. Same goes for the elected representatives who are living off the resources meant for the welfare and development of the society, waxing eloquence all the while, while the less fortunate are fighting a losing battle against poverty and opportunity for self-improvement. Live and let live.
