Why is there no social action against any injustice?When lakhs of people assembled at one place and demanded that a sport be conducted in keeping with the Tamil tradition, on the sands of the Marina Beach, the second largest beach in the world, at Chennai, for over four days, the entire world had to sit up and take notice.
He was public anger at its best. Here was social action at its best.
However, we have not seen such social action against heinous crimes like rape or excesses of the ruling party or against corruption.
Are we so insensitive? Have we lost our basic ethics, that we are so much unconcerned about people? Unless the people speak out, the judiciary, the ruling party or any other such center of power will never sit up and take notice.
The question is: who is to bell the cat? And how can we mobilize all our resources, particularly youth resources in this regard? Members may highlight their own experiences or instances of social action that has lead to desirable results. The only thing is that such social action should have come and should have been sustained through and by non-political sources. Let us all do some serious introspection here.
