OUR LOST CHILDHOOD

My childhood was in the village and I have those sweet and serene memories.When I recall those vibrant days I feel saddened due to the fact that our children or grand children are not able to live that village life due to the exigencies of the modern life. The green surroundings, village games, farm fresh vegetables and fruits, the festivals with all pomp and vigor, bathing ponds – all are in my pleasant memory.There were Gurukula system of nursery education where the elderly Teacher used to impart lessons on good manners and etiquette in addition to the language and arithmetics. This helped children to mould themselves as good citizens. The urban life does not have any of these qualities. Todays’ children are mostly influenced by the media ( Computer,TV and radio ) and their future is mostly misguided by these influences. As agriculture is no more a profitable sector most of the villagers move to urban areas in search of jobs which ultimately wipe out the serenity of villages.

Crimes and unrest

Burglary , murders for gain and extremism continue unabated today. Naxal violence¬† threatens the sovereignty of our country. India Government is planning an offensive against Naxals called ” Operation Green Hunt”. But before thinking of the cure for this anomaly it will be prudent to think of the reasons for this general unrest among masses. It is estimated that 77 % of¬† Indians live on an income of Rs.20/ a day while 5 % enjoy lives that border on obscene excess !While the Administration view this extremism as a grave threat to the country, the alienated masses perceive this extrimism as a solution to their problems.Hence a permanent remedy can be achieved only by improving the living conditions of these struggling masses.
