Are we a Gutless Nation?

How many more of such stories shall we have to read before the Government will finally get the courage to let loose the army on these maoists/Marxists? How many more innocents will have to die on the very first train- journey of their lives. How many more citizens is the Government willing to sacrifice before declaring an all-out war on the naxalites?
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened, and unfortunately, this isn’t the last. The response too will be the same. The news channels will talk about this for 2-3 days, political parties will do mudslinging, and ultimately we will move till there is another bomb blast or aircraft accident.
Don’t know about you, but I am convinced that we Indians lack the courage to correct mistakes, and go after the people who perpetrate such attacks. I say Indians and not the Government, because it is us who don’t vote and allow such chickens to come to power.

    Guts is the word what great mother Jija Bai has taught Shivaji ,Maa Yashoda has Taught Lord Krishna Subhadra has taught Abhimanyu ”The knowledge of entering the deadly and virtually impenetrable” etc. I think in this decade we are lacking such mothers who doesn’t have such sense of dedication towards family and towards Nation as a whole. We are into a great rat race of snatching comforts, success love and respect .We are all the role players for a particular action for time being. We never think of the future effects for a particular action. Always the bigger picture is missing in our minds, so we are all responsible to make a coward nation.

    Manu, we do lack courage and commitment and above all integrity to fight these odds. We need unite ourselves towards people who are ready to divide regions, country and people for their petty interest. I now remember Rabindranath Tagore’s famous poem: WHERE the mind is without fear and the head is held high…Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
