Why are we not bothered about macro problems?Across the country, people are facing acute water problems. The need to intelligently use and maximize the availability of water is now felt than ever before. Yet, the macro narrative is only on other issues and a particular frenzy is being whipped up to invite passions for a particular religion, being or at least projected as the main religion. The minorities are sought to be silenced or sought to be made to surrender to the majority rhetoric.
The mainstream media is also playing ball. In a so-called advanced State like Gujarat, the so-called development has happened to the total negligence of vital social indicators. We need big debates on the relevance of inclusive growth in all places. That Kerala and Tamil Nadu are streets ahead is one fact that needs more research. Will we wake up at least now?
