“In politics we will be recognising the principle of one man one vote and one vote one value. In our social and economic life, we shall, by reason of our social and economic structure, continue to deny the principle of one man one value. How long shall we continue to live this life of contradictions?” – Dr. Ambedkar
- Try to read about the guy in the picture above. Quite a remarkable fellow.
- If you dont want to read about him, atleast read the seven lines of the Preamble to the Constitution he was the architect of,
- Stop calling people chaiwallah, kachrewali, autowallah, naukar, driver etc. Ask them their names and use that information.
- Stop treating the maid(s), drivers and others that work for you ‘pretty well’ and treat them as you would like/expect your employer to treat you.
- Replace “since Independence” by “since we became a Republic”, that will atleast remind people that we are supposed to be a Republic. Technically even the Mughal Empire and the other kingdoms were ‘independent’.
- Start voting. Beginning with your local municipal elections.
- If you follow the voting advice above, try not to vote for people who are obviously retards, criminals or like to get votes based on appealing to your caste/religion/region etc etc
- If you are about to break a law because:
a) Everybody else is doing it.
b) India is already so messed up.
c) You are too smart to obey the law.
DONT. This includes spitting on walls that are already covered with paan stuff, throwing stuff out of railway coaches onto dirty tracks, breaking traffic lights ….
- If you know someone who is corrupt or regularly breaks the law, make it clear that you are not going to associate with them. Let people know that it is not okay to be corrupt.
- Stop watching India TV.
