So, the general elections have been announced. There used to be a time when we were not bothered about voting and meekly accepted whosoever, from whichever party, was elected as our representative.
No more. Our ignorance and indifference should not result in our silently suffering for the next five years.
So please make it a point to VOTE. Our votes make a difference.
I do not belong to any political party but seeing the deep rooted corruption all around, I am convinced that we need a strong PM to lead the country and cleanse the system.
In my opinion, Narendra MODI of BJP can give us the much needed focus and development.
In our Blue mountains, the biggest problem, affecting all of us is DRINKING. Even the school going children have taken to this evil due to its
free easy availability.
In Gujarat, Modi, has successfully implemented prohibition and has done away with another big drawback – ‘FREE BIE’ culture.
Rajma, an award winning teacher, writes :-
It is a matter of shame that NILGIRIS & DRINKING HAVE become integral parts. I have been seeing and hearing for the past four decades, the number of families ruined in our hattis because of this evil habit. There are untold stories of miseries, tears, humiliations,sufferings because of this dreadful drinking habit. The list of educated people who have lost their dignity and self esteem, is endless.
Being a Govt. servant and a lady, I have my own limitations. Still tried my best to create awareness, but miserably failed in the circle of my own relatives.
Changes are inevitable. If a positive change comes, our people are blessed. I donot belong to any political party either.Let us hope and elect a deserving candidate who would bring revolution. No night is so long that cannot find the day. Hope that good day would come for Nilgiris.
