Written by a young engineer from Hyderabad…
I’m an engineer working in the IT industry. I work 9 hours a day, 200 hours a month and roughly 2400 hours a year. Sometimes, I work during holidays like Holi and Diwali just to make that extra few rupees.
I can buy food and clothes just because some people in Canada use mobile phones and internet.
I pay my taxes dutifully and I never take subsidy. The LPG cylinder I use is from a private vendor and not the subsidized Government one. The rice, flour I buy isn’t from a PDS shop, no subsidy. I pay taxes, high taxes on petrol that I use in my bike, VAT, Sales tax, this tax, that tax, but I never crib about that.
Coming to education, I was never the beneficiary of Govt. funded subsidized education. My school i.e. South Point School was a private one and my college GIMT was also a private engineering college. Belonging to a lower middle class family, I know the sacrifices my parents made to get me a good education. I never cribbed about the Government not opening an extra engineering college or waiving off my tuition fee.
Instead, I cursed my mediocrity and my inability to get into a govt. college and hence subsidize my education.
The city I live, Hyderabad has acute water problem and I pay Rs 700 every month on water. I don’t expect the Govt. to provide free water to me nor free electricity. Unlike the freeloaders and beggars of Delhi, I would never vote for a crook who promises free electricity and water. I know, Socialism is not a viable experiment and cannot be sustained in the long run. It has to fail and it will fail.
In spite of all this i.e. the govt. not doing any thing for me, I never raised anti-India slogans and if needed would give the last drop of my blood to my country. How dare they shout slogans like “Hindustan teri barbaadi tak jung chalegi” – “We’ll fight till the destruction of India”. How dare they say “Bharat tere tukde honge, Insha Allah Insha Allah” – “India, you’d be divided, Allah willing Allah willing”, when they’re the beneficiaries of all that I didn’t.
Free education, free food, free accommodation in an expensive city like Delhi and all they shout is shit and just for the sake of freedom of speech we should tolerate it.
Like a true believer in John F Kennedy’s saying “Ask not what the country can do for you, ask what you can do for the country”, there is a section of people like me who work day in and day out and glorify our country’s name not only in India but across North America, Europe and Asia and here we have another section sucking out the life blood of India and chanting anti-India slogans.
Listen, you communists, leftists, pseudo-secularists, seccessionists, so long we Nationalists are alive you would never succeed in your diabolical designs of breaking India. The 21st century belongs to people like me, not Jhola Chaaps like you.
