No one should destroy or damage the public propertyJust by hearing the word property a feeling of well being comes in our mind. It evokes a wealthy sensation in our perceptions. People in society are generally valued as per the property they have. Before fixing a match of their children before marriage, many people consider the property of the other party an important parameter. So, definitely property or more precisely the assets is a measure of financial condition of an entity whether it is an individual or company or organisation or a government.
Our properties whether in form of land, building, gold, or money are very much important to us. We value our property in whatever form it is and keep it safe and secure and even maintain it to last long wherever it is in tangible form. But what about government or public property? Do we value it in the same way as our personal property? Do we also care for it? Do we understand that in some indirect way it is our own property and if it is destroyed or damaged then only our money is lost because the government or public property is created from the direct or indirect taxes that we have been paying when we buy an item or when the financially well off people pay their income taxes or the profit making companies pay their corporate taxes. Actually it is our own money though it is not figuring in our bank accounts but figures in the details that government provides during the budget sessions and other such meetings.
Why some people do not understand this basic fact that destroying or damaging the public property is not only a crime but it is like cutting ones own legs before a walk. We must understand and inculcate this feeling in everyone that public property is our property and we must check anyone trying to damage it. Let us contribute in the growth of our nation by not indulging in any such condemnable practices.
