What have you done about it?

A wall post on Facebook: "Hazare starts a 'fast unto death' to exert pressure on the government of India to fight against corruption!" Within a day - 15 people like this. View all 5 comments.

One comment reads: "He is a great soul. This country needs many men like him."

The point is - What have you really done about this situation? You think posting such things on the wall will make you really cool, sound awesome and make you a cool dude or a super cool dame isn't it? Some people think that you are up to the mark or you are the master of current affairs of this country.

Let me be very honest and frank here. Posting such status on Facebook, Orkut or Twitter might make you famous. But, do you really understand the gravity of the situation? Or have you really been through fasting for some days? Trust me; your balls will drop off! Okay, I agree you will be having innumerable reasons for not going through. At least try to contribute something, however trivial it may be, for the betterment of the society. Post your ideas on how to save society from evils like corruption. Create awareness such that people will start considering your point and make some impact.
Let’s not forget the fact that if Facebook is made a country, it is third most populous nation in the world. Your words will reach across the country. But NO! All you want to do is register maximum number of likes, comments, etc. Can't you see, the nation is bleeding with scams! And you are just making fun of it!

The bottom line is plain and simple. If you are posting just the facts on the political situation, then go find a place somewhere else other than Facebook, Orkut, Twitter or any other social network. You are misleading the younger generation which is growing behind you. Instead post something that is helpful or useful to the state. Be constructive! Think about solving social issues or problems.

If you think I am blaming you, fine then, I can't help it. At least I don't post something which I don't have knowledge about it or I cannot do anything about it.


  1. Really well said..I wish People should Understand this...N Word of advice...Keep Writing

  2. Nice article, but one can genuinely appreciate what other person is doing! If a person condemn's another without having knowledge of the exact situation, then that really sucks. Doing what you can in any proportion to show your support or appreciation is no harm!
    Sorry Amit! I speak my mind :P But its well written.

  3. @Madhuri: Support in what way? I don't think just commenting in the wall post regarding situations like these will help in any ways. If one really wants to help, join the real troop, otherwise its better to keep mouths shut!

  4. Amit!
    Now I know how to make you angry :P

  5. I like it. :D. Even your blog should have like it button :).

  6. ya nice thinking. by sitting in front of pc, no one can change the nation.working five days in week going outing in weekends cannot change the system.by reading ur article i'l tel one thing about this people how many of u will celebrate independence day , hw mny of you will salute the nation flag at 8am on that day, hw many of u can sing our national anthem correctly.(exept me coz its my duty) matter is first we all must understand our nation then all falts wiil come to know there lot of matters dude .keep writing amit

  7. another thing those who r supporting physicaly are also not having strong determination they are unstable dude for publicity all will talk only 2 to 3 days. ,common man will also join the troop and talk about the matter seriously. when election will come they'll be voting just for money and some other things. just happend in TN elections since 15 yrs we r seeing only 2 CM's periodically both have a record of bribes ,illgeal properties then too we will vote them only. one thing people have short memory they will froget everything and parden the mistakes done by the leaders.if these supporters were there in freedom movement the independence would be a nightmare to us.
