Change from within : a Realisation.

Many a times I wonder - why it becomes necessary to bring out our inner voices ? Voices that are too loud to be ignored and are not willing to be buried - untold & unheard.

The other day I went for a movie - No One Killed Jessica. It is a movie that evokes many emotions within us. The 2nd half of the movie strengthens our belief that truth wins in the end, no matter what. The movie potrays the real face of Corrupted India. A country overpopulated with corruption , where anyone can be bought and sold. All one needs is POWER -  to be the Master of the Trade of corruption. Throughout our adult lives, we have read of and known of cases where justice is denied to the needy. The truth shrieks right into our faces, but the system is sooooo blinded by the glory of power, that it tramples upon the hopes of those seeking justice. The glory of corruption crushes the beliefs of all downtrodden in the legitimateness of justice and walks away with its head held high with shameless pride.

India, a country so diverse, a country so rich in culture, is also famously known for its richness in corruption. How can a country OF THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, be so morally poor ?? All it needs is an awakening call , a push on the conscience to beat the demons of corruption. Media plays a very important role in influencing people and reaching out to them. The very same media can take pride in bringing back to life the dead conscience of so many of us. With the belief that one candle can illuminate many lives, we should tap the doors of our conscience and let it spread the LIGHT OF JUSTICE.


  1. It was a nice movie indeed... however Rani's constant abuses made me feel as if she was hurling all of them at me... Corruption will be the death of this country..the only was out is the get the media in.... they want spicy news and plus... helps people understand whats really happening... what say?

  2. yes.. i liked the 2nd half better.. yes media can only awaken our senses..... bt yes, it definitely wud be a start :)

  3. corruption is much deeper than what the media shows us. it has been tattooed on our own souls. how many can say that they have never broken a law. even if it is a small one. how many of us have never given a bribe, even if it is just 50 rupees to the traffic policeman. when we cheat in an exam we are being corrupt. when we give a proxy for our friend we are being corrupt. the fact that proxy is not considered too bad just shows how deep corruption is rooted in our society.
    i believe to end corruption we need to start with the man in the mirror. or the women in the mirror in your case.
