You are not alone, many concerned citizens share the same thought that they are great political materials, only unwilling to take part.You are watching the new political parties struggling to fish in party members and you are wondering how they will find as many as 47 members each, ignoring that fact that you could be one of them.
You have concerns over many issues and you were unhappy with the way things have gone so far. Deep inside you know that you could make difference but
- You think it's too early for you to join politics. You will wait for the right time in life.
- You don't want to risk your job for a mere probability. You will join after you have made enough money to survive if you have to lose.
- You think you are too clean to be a politician. Politics is for different species of people.
- You want to be in the ruling party but you know that it's impossible to predict.
- You are already feeling the embarrassment if you lose.
- You think you can make the difference from your chair and spend the rest of your life pointing fingers.
Well, it reminds me of Anil Kapoor's blockbuster Nayak, where he becomes Chief Minister for a Day and wins people's faith. But when he was approached to run for election he refuses with his own share of excuses. We need someone like Paresh Rawal to bash us with his powerful dialogue to realize that if you want change you have to invest in it and make sacrifices.
|You want change, You don't want to get Dirty!|
I am guilty too, I have been approached by a party last summer and I declined. I am not scared of losing this job, actually I have better offers than this, but it's about life's calling. I find satisfaction living among children, and my excuse is that I will try my share of changing here in school where life begins. I know it's not the best excuse but I meant it.
What is your excuse?
