Time to stop faking and face the facts


Man, being a social animal has to exist with and amongst other humans and in order to adjust and make co-existence possible certain laws and regulations are drawn up to safeguard the welfare of every member of the group or community, curtailing certain personal freedoms and liberties that might infringe on other person’s welfare. This is the basic idea of a social set-up. Leaders and arbitrators are then chosen to oversee the smooth working of the social system with adequate executive powers as deemed necessary to enforce the same- the Government as we know, create and accept in the contemporary world. A society, being made up of individual members as well as diverse communities, is bound to come up with conflicting interests and emotions. This is where the quality and the efficiency of the people entrusted to sort out these social issues are being tested. The problems being faced by our society as a collective whole in recent
times is uncountable and varied- indeed an intimidating and daunting task for those entrusted to solve them. Public memory is short lived-or so it is believed. But sweeping away these problems under the carpet and shrouding them with silence, putting the theory about public memory to the test is not the right step towards easing or erasing the problems. Nor is the polished method of prolonging the issues and tiring out the protesting parties to buy time and making these matters fade out of the mind of the public the prudent way of resolving things. The truth about the existence or otherwise of the much discussed and debated ‘National Register of Citizens 1951’- should be clarified by the state government without further ado as the
recent flare-ups and the still simmering social tensions that is increasingly taking on a communal tone needs to be addressed immediately lest the state will be thrown into another bout of mayhem. It’s better to call a spade a spade and wind up the matter before things become irreparably damaged. It needs to speed up the workings of its various departments and deliver the goods in time to avoid and
prevent more problems. Genuine issues should be resolved before things gets out of hand and “mob Justice” takes precedence for those whose voices has been gagged for so long and their grievances fallen on deaf ears . 
Justice delayed is justice denied.
