They can make you believe anything they want. Heck, they can even turn lies into truths.
By repeating them over and over again.
A lie they have been propagating since eternity is that the gravest danger India face is pollution.
But the reality is quite different: pollution is not the issue, not the real one.
Then what is?
Well, think about this:
How many times have you seen politicians talk about the consequences of overpopulation; that India is one of the most populous countries in the world?
You can’t even recall, right?
They have been drilling in your head that the problem is pollution. They warn you of plastic waste, consequences of driving a vehicle, dry leaves, climate change and all that bullshit.
Every year around Diwali, the NGOs, the ‘eminent personalities’ (the gang who advocated a pardon for a terrorist) – all of them shout on top of their voices, “Don’t burn firecrackers, they pollute the air.”
But firecrackers are not the only thing polluting the air. There’s traffic as well. And the traffic situation is so goddam pathetic that you feel like drowning in a sea of vehicles.
Here’s Why I Will Not VOTE for MODI in 2024 (मैं इसलिए २०२४ में मोदी को वोट नहीं दूँगा)
आप को बचपन से सिखाया गया…
“बेटा, कमा कर खाओ, पुरुषार्थी बनो, दूसरों का मुंह मत ताको।”
और वही आप करते भी हैं: अपना काम मेहनत से करते हैं, समय पर टैक्स भरते हैं, बिजली चोरी नहीं करते, रेडलाइट जम्प नहीं करते…दूसरे शब्दों में आप एक ‘उत्तरदायी नागरिक’ हैं, पर आपको आज तक मिला क्या, बताइए ज़रा?
