Delhi-our national capital. The capital city of Mughal Dynasty, Slave Dynasty, a prominent city during British Rule which made them embrace it as their capital rather than Kolkata.
We all are proud of the cultural and architectural heritage of Delhi. We all are also proud of the Modern culture and Development of the our Capital. Metro Trains running along side Akshardham or it is the station at Chandni Chowk which provide us a door between New Delhi and Old Delhi. Qutub Minar or ISKON Temple, we are always been obliged as well as felt proud of these. We all remember the days of Anna Hazare’s Movement and Protest Against Nirbhaya. It all started with India Gate or Jantar Mantar and lead to Ramlila Maidan. Souls connecting to the soil. Modern India which usually prefers Malls went to these places during those days.
Modern India and Middle Age India living in the Capital has always thought of the proprietor and care taker of the modernization. They also keep updating in terms of new technology, new fashion, new business ideas. But this modern India is practically uncivilized.
We have developed a lot, us Delhites. But we can’t keep pace with the moral and civic responsibilities. Taking into account the fundamental duties that are in black and white mentioned in our constitution. We are not even a A-grade there. Delhites have one common statement in their defense- “These are all for the old times, we are in wolves era.” My dear friends, Wolves always lead to wolves era and Lions always lead to lions. Its your choice to be whichever you want.
While traveling in metro trains, I usually came across people with minimal civic sense. They talk aloud on cellphones. Ringtones are very loud. Words like “Excuse me” and “Thanks” have lost the value. “Excuse me” is a display of dismissive attitude or non-acceptance. “Thanks” has lost its meaning and also is scarce. These modern people lead a fast life, with fast food, but they never wait to throw the emptied cans and plastic packaging. Most of them could never make out the difference between Blue and Green Trash Boxes. They are rude into metros, buses and never leave their seats for Old and Needy. These evolved hunters are now snatchers. Basic Civic sense of these modernized people can be seen in the traffic jam, or on the roads. They can move into any direction. Honking is in fashion, and sometimes it is accompanied with abusive languages. They still trying to understand the usage of indicators. 7 out of 10 car drivers, whom I have observed aren’t using indicators. They don’t know their neighbours hence most of the time do not answer to their calls for help or support.
It is the Attitude, which is the main problem of our generation. They never give a damn to anything but them only. Their rights, their life, their job, their career, their house, their car. But this sphere is very small. It never increases to their responsibilities, thus their society, thus their region and there nation. This kind of attitude will lead to destruction only. We can be rich, we can be smart, but without morality we are doomed.
