Let us create a better society - It is our money, it is our street and it is our area - we want infrastructure according to our needs - let us tell the authorities that they should not cook and serve us what they want but with our money, provide us with what we want to eat. For this we need to develop a vibrant civil society by being proactive.
Let us do it.
VOTE WE MUST - Let us create history with maximum voting. Time to create a change and we must be the change we want to see.
In the last Lok Sabha Elections 2009, hardly 55 to 60 per cent of those eligible to vote exercised their franchise. What happened to the rest is a moot question. They simply did not bother to vote and they thought - 'my vote does not count' and 'none of these candidates deserve my vote' because all of them are 'chips of the old block' and we will continue to be 'like that only'.
How long we should continue with such stale thoughts? When will we ever improve? Isn't it time to create a better society with high degree of participatory democracy? Let us think holistically and develop a sense of responsibility to improve our society; otherwise, we will be leaving a legacy of corrupt society to our future generations.
Show this time you are an awakened citizen and say : we want what we want and all these days you neither gave us what we want nor what you should have given. From now onwards it is we, who will tell you what to do.
