Let there be Light…

In Bihar, News, rants on February 11, 2011 at 1:14 am

Story about Bhagalpur and the electricity hasn’t changed much in these years. The power crisis in the silk city is as grave as it used to be decades back, when I was there. The city in particular, barely saw the bulb glowing for continuous 4 hours a day. And it continues to be the same, despite the much talked about development agenda of a neo Chief Minister. This government seems to be more pathetic because the very Own Deputy CM is elected by the same people of Bhagalpur.

The new development that we heard long back is the NTPC‘s new Power station coming up at Badh, the largest in the country. 5 years have gone by but the station is still incomplete. Kahalgaon continues to be the sole station generating power. Bihar gets a fraction of the electricity produced by it. Center has no answer for this and Nitish raises this issue of step brotherly treatment by center.

The recent acute power shortage has hit the entire state, not only Bhagalpur but Purnia, Saharsha, Begusarai, Muzzafarpur and others also. Reason being, the derailment of wagon carrying coal to Kahalgaon Thermal Station. Now, who is responsible for the upkeep of railways? Aren’t public paying Taxes? Why this negligence? It’s time Public servants (with public servants I mean elected Politicians be at center or state or in Govt or in opposition) get their facts straight. NO WORK-NO VOTE.

My suggestion, Don’t be complacent, if you are sitting MLA or MP. If you can’t work, that place is not for you. There are millions waiting, Seat is up for Grab Mr. Minister

Chrysalis :The third of the four distinctive live stages of a butterfly. This is one of the most fascinating stages and one of the easiest to miss. This is the stage that turns the caterpillar into a butterfly

Nothing endures but change.
– Heraclitus

Why change ?

We feel so cozy in our comfort zone that rarely we wish to change. Think, what would have happened to us if our primitive fathers decided to stay as they were, living in stone cast houses, hunting, living like a nomad, no fire,no wheel  nothing. Life would have been so difficult. Since ages mankind has been making forays into new dimensions of life. We are constantly on a path, path to change, a path to find our destiny, a path to create happiness.

Where are we heading ?

Ask yourself a simple question Are we on the track? Where did we falter then? Shouldn’t the very basic premise of Change be checked, every time men were oblivious of the target?  Children follow the footsteps of their role model. What kind of role model are we creating?Parents, Educational Institutions  set the basic foundation of the Society. Every person must understand and constantly remind themselves of the their duty. Their responsibility is to sustain a better and happier future of  our themselves and the Gen-Next.

Role Models

Each individual has a mentor a role model to look up to. It need not be a person. It could be anything which inspires. Which ask you to see, think “what we are doing? Is it right to do? Who all will get benefited by this act?”

Most often Parents or a Teacher shall be ones role model.  One has to be a torch-bearer to thousands who look up to him.  Who is your role model? Are you creating a moral standard for your coming generation?

Changes come in small packages, accept it. – Anonymous
