India – A new government, a new nation

Day before yesterday, the election results came out for the world’s largest democracy, India, and a new government was formed. One thing that is there to ponder about,  is how the nation has changed in various terms of modernity, over the last the ten years, since the previous government was formed. This elections had witnessed the largest voter turnout ever, implying that more people were aware of the need to impose their right to vote. Also, we are now more willing to take risks, explore and have grown more ‘social network’ conscious. We are everywhere, on every social networking site, making friends, exploring ourselves, exploring like minded people and also our problems. The importance of social networking can be seen from the fact that this time, many politicians too, have taken up the path of social networking, to connect, reach out to people and promote themselves. So as a nation, India, we should pledge to use the tools of social network, as tools of power, to correct what is wrong, to provide justice to those who deserve, and to keep a check on those who create problems for us. We are a billion+ informed and a billion+ strong.
