Change is the law of nature and no life is permanent on this
earth. Every life is under constant change. It holds true for all life on this
planet and the guiding force is the nature which too is under perpetual change.

Today, I wish to speak up regarding change in the mind-set
of people of this world. More and more people are getting educated but their
outlook is narrowing and bringing in turbulence and intolerance in the society.
Day by day more chaos and confusion is been created in society.

In 70’s, people held the view that with time, there will be
a major change in society. People will move away from the bindings of religion,
caste, creed, colour and sex and their views will be broadened…and it was
thought that Indians were more conservative in these context.

Check out today’s scenario, the whole world is disturbed on
account of religion. Terror is on rise and the innocents are losing life. The
people are more educated but they are using their skills in a bizarre way
disturbing the peace around.

I think the uneducated mass were better than the educated
ones. They had an ear to listen to people and a noble heart to help people

The educated mass has become self-centred, eccentric and
egoistic and only thinks of themselves and the tolerance power is nil.

They don’t listen to people and in aggression, they sweep down
to violence and destruction.

Every now and then, people are been attacked and shot down
to death for no reason and an unknown fear has gripped people.

Caste feeling has receded to some extent but the
reservations in India has created disparity and an ill feeling among the
General classes, OBC, SC and ST and the issue of classes has cropped up and
every now and then, the classes clash and give way to violence. The college and
universities have become a battle field for the groups to clash and shed blood.
People are murdered or people suicide due to ill feeling of classes.

Again, the education and the awareness is creating menace in
society…previous days were better, people had caste feeling and I do agree that
the forward classes exploited poor people but still they cared. They were made
to work on meagre pay-outs but care was taken of their family by providing them
land to irrigate and places to dwell with their family…and at least people
lives were spared…if they committed mistake they were punished but killing was
not on spree.

Now the people have become monster and they resort to
monstrous attitude.
The issue of colour and complexion is more or less nipped
and the dusky and dark complexion is accepted in all fields. Real change for
the betterment has come up in this context…nowadays, dusky females are accepted
in the fields of modelling, films and in marriages too, the issue of complexion
has subsided to a great extent and I am really happy to see the change around.

The issue of acceptance of girls is more than previous
days of 70’s, 80’s and 90’s but still not eradicated…not even partially…it is
nearing to quarter…still the population cherishes for son. I feel both daughter
and son is equally essential and as per available statistics, the ratio of
girls has considerably declined so we need more girls.

People do accept daughters but still craving is there for sons
and in villages, people bear children till they have son, isn’t it pathetic?

In 70’s and 80’s rare people used contraceptives to control
birth and they believed in having more kids. The joint family system and the
agricultural produce helped the guardians in rearing their kids but now, with
high inflation, disintegration of joint family and the common people don’t have
much land to produce cereals and it’s tough to raise children, even two kids
are a matter of concern.

The mentality needs to be changed and one should be
contended with the child, the concern should be of having kids irrespective of
sex and to bear till the arrival of son, it affects mental and physical health
of the lady of the house and financial status of family.

Literacy rate has gone high but are we really educated?
Education is not just for minting money, it is for general development of a
person in all spheres and particularly the outlook and the mind-set need to be

Change yourself, drop dividing people in the name of
religion and racial discrimination and killing masses.

Awareness is good till it is not intriguing our lives.

A Big Change is the demand of the hour to bring peace on
this earth and each and every individual participation will bring in change.

When people are killed, candle march is organised to protest
and a silent prayer for the deceased.

Organise candle march to bring in peace in society and all
individual should join to bring peace on earth.
