Hari the Hadron

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had given the job of designing and construction to Gammon India and the reason given by the authorities was that it was done to save costs. What a horrendous decision is this.

This is something like giving a caterer a lakh of rupees to prepare lunch for a thousand people and also giving him the freedom to choose the menu. Obviously he is going to serve you with Curd Rice and pickles while he prepares a feast for himself with the rest of the money. This is exactly what Gammon India have done for Delhi Metro Rail lines. Unfortunately just as sometimes the curd gets sour even before it is served, so has the structures built by Gammon India.

It is shocking to find that the Government, political analysts, media and a whole lot of communities, who think they can successfully run the country with their oratorial abilities, are so much engrossed in shouting in resonance that the country is facing a situation of severe drought when there is a part of our country called “Assam” which is reeling in heavy flood even this year.

It is a horrific revelation of total non-governance and lack of Political will (I really don’t understand why it is such an importance feature of governance) on the part of Indian Democratic system, when this phenomena of flood in Assam and drought or shortage of rainfall in other parts of the country has been going on for decades now, that not a single tangible step has been taken to harness the flood water and divert it to regions with shortage of rainfall. People who talk about the cost of such an exercise should just put their heads and look at the amount spent in flood relief in Assam almost every year and compensation to farmers in other parts of the country every year, which would cumulate to a sum many more times higher than that would have taken to harness the flood water from Assam.

It is even more pitiable that today people have even stopped discussing the subject of floods in Assam in detail and are only shouting about the drought in Northern India.

I have been getting this feeling sometimes that the Indian governing system runs on the fuel called “Pressure”. Let me be clear that this fuel called “Pressure” is only meant to run the governance part of the Indian Government and not the non-governance activities which forms a major part of Indian Democratic system.

It is also that our governance system runs only on high degree of “Pressure”. Take the case of killing of a MBA graduate in Madhya Pradesh. The Government took action to investigate the case by CB-CID and then the CBI only after heavy “Pressure” from the public.

So we should all understand that we need to fuel the governing system of our country separately for separate functions. For governance activities, we need to fuel it constantly with “Pressure” and for Non-governance activities, anway we all know how to fuel it. I think the whole problem is that we have been using only the fuel meant for non-governance activities, whereby the process of governance has become a junk.

So jaago bharat jaago, we all have more than required “Pressures” in our life. Just keep releasing it on the Government, I am sure we will have a better governing system in place.
