Since the last about eight months now the Indian citizens have been continously exposed to one scam after anothe., Corruption at higher levels of politics and administration have become a daily affair. Involved are leaders and administrators who are in the highest positions of trust. It is both sad and frightening that these persons do not care before they indulge in corruption. It seems the only reason they exsist is to loot and amass tons and tons of money from the treasury. Greed is their god and corruption is their prayer.
Every area of governance is an area of scam. Mostof the politicians and top officials of the country are having wealth beyond their known sources of income. Yet they suffer niether from shame or guilt. Indeed almost all of them go scot free and their generations enjoy this wealth everafter. The few who get caught need not worry because the Indian courts move slower than snails in matters of dispensing justice. All of them are set free after years of trials. Foolish voters vote them back to power so that they can amass more wealth.
All this brings a deep sense of frustration in the common man . He feels terribly let down. He has nowhere to go and does not know what to do. Elections are held every five years and generally the choice is between less corrupt and more corrupt candidates.Most of the times the common man vents away his anger thru armchair discussions.
He is in search of a hero who can lift his morale and bring joy in his life. Who can make him forget the corrupt leaders and administrators.Someone who can make him proud of being an Indian
Thank God that there is in this country a great cricket player having the name Sachin Tendulkar. This man has been playing since last twenty years. He has played great innings and has risen to be now rated as the best batsman ever, Every time he steps out to bat Indians walk with him. Every run he scores they run with him. Every new record he makes they become a part of it. Even if f he does not score they still love him for the great moments of pleasure he has given them.
He makes them forget that they belong to a country of increasing corruption and lowering of moral values. He reminds them that in a dedicated manner they can also achieve and make meaningful contributions of which their fellow citizens can be proud. He gives them hope.
So while politicians and administrators are working hardin making India slide towards zero thank God we have Sachin the hero.
