An Open Letter to Congress!

Dear Congress,

Having born in an Independent Democracy, I have enjoyed the freedom and rights my country had to offer. Through my travels to various regions I had myself immersed in its diversity and beauty. The Leaders who fought for this freedom, their blood, their sweat and their sacrifices never fail to inspire me.

But dear congressmen in power, why did they fight for freedom?

Let me quote your own leader

Freedom and power bring responsibility. The responsibility rests upon this Assembly, a sovereign body representing the sovereign people of India. Before the birth of freedom, we have endured all the pains of labour and our hearts are heavy with the memory of this sorrow. Some of those pains continue even now. Nevertheless, the past is over and it is the future that beckons us now.

That future is not one of ease or resting but of incessant striving so that we may fulfill the pledges we have so often taken and the one we shall take today. The service of India means, the service of the millions who suffer. It means the ending of poverty and ignorance and disease and inequality of opportunity. The ambition of the greatest man of our generation has been to wipe every tear from every eye. That may be beyond us, but as long as there are tears and suffering, so long our work will not be over.

And so we have to labour and to work, and to work hard, to give reality to our dreams.”

Have you truly wiped every tear from every eye? (Minus those during election campaigns)  and wait!
he went on saying

“To the people of India, whose representatives we are, we make an appeal to join us with faith and confidence in this great adventure. This is no time for petty and destructive criticism, no time for ill-will or blaming others. We have to build the noble mansion of free India where all her children may dwell.

Today these words “free India where all her children may dwell” made sense when our CBI Director officially announced that “we” Indians are the largest depositors in banks abroad with an estimated 500 billion US dollars (nearly Rs 24.5 lakh crore) of illegal money.

Excuse me?!

Even in my wildest of dreams I would not have imagined having a share in that filthy Money. Still they address it as “We”, All the Money is yours, and All the Pride in being “Numero Uno”  in terms of money stashed is to be shared by the Every one of us? **** ***

(I don’t want to address you with the worst words I know hence a **** ***)

If, Why am I holding you responsible? there are other parties as well! is your question, then eat this! This is addressed to you because you have ruled(ruined) our country for almost 5 decades! and now with the weakest Prime Minister in the history of India who points finger at others for every charge of corruption, scam, and mismanagement!
How can a Prime Minister of a country of 1.2 Billion people take no responsibility for his cabinets misdeeds ?

And how can you justify his statement in public that “Compromises are made in Coalition Politics ? 

Dear Prime Minister, your compromise is estimated to be worth 1.76 Lakh Crore Rupees! and no one here is a fool to believe that your compromise on 1.76 Lakh Crore Rupees is for the Welfare of People!

Isn’t it the first lesson in leadership that a leader should lead from front and take responsibility on behalf of his team ? Even the Man who lead a team of 11 cricketers and won us our second world cup  is not spared from this rule!

When you take your oath, do you really place your hand on your heart and utter those words as we all sit in front of our TV sets listening to your speeches of change and improvement ?

We are not asking you to give us everything! Take whatever is rightly yours, Power, Fame, all our wishes and provide this country with what it starves for
” Freedom “.  Ah! I know! they mean nothing now, Nothing! unless we “pay” to realize them.

When I come across stories of MLA’s and MP’s with murder, rape, land grab charges I wonder where they were during our freedom struggle (Considering the age of active politicians in power now). No! these are surely not the guys who brought us freedom. I am sure they won’t even spare a thought on our freedom  struggle unless its Aug 15 or Jan 26. These are disgusting-wicked wolves who have pounced on the opportunity to plunder this nation.

The Struggle for freedom has been hijacked by these **** ****.

Count the number of attacks on our people and how even other country conflicts are fought in our soil. Attacks carried at will! your zero tolerance to terror is actually zero fear in the minds of terrorists! They strike at will and “we”  hear the same stories in loop. Are these lives just numbers to you? or is the only number you worry about is your asset in swiss bank ?

“We” the people of India are still soulless, shedding our blood and tear! Please make no more promises!


Give us our country back! 😦

Thank you!

  1. New to your blog. Really liked this post, but wondered why just the Congress has been singled out. I strongly disapprove of the people and the ethics that the party stands for (in deed, not in words), but I see the same rot in pretty much every other party too. Most of what you have said applies to all the other parties equally. It is the corrupt politician greedy corporate nexus that is really the focus of your attack. All parties are equally guilty.

    1. Thanks for your comment! Yes I agree and its very true that all the parties are corrupt and guilty. No political party is barred from corruption. however this letter is addressed to congress has they claim themselves to have played a bigger role in fighting British through ahimsa and installing democracy and peace in India after independence. this post is to question their motives on why they really had to fight for our freedom!

  2. I’m a person who has absolutely no idea about Indian politics (or world politics, for that matter). But I’ve always felt that these politicians have great speeches and no actions. I feel bad for talking against them because I actually don’t know anything about what they have done (or haven’t). Anyway, I always believe that if India has to change, we need better citizens (probably more from our generation) with a will to bring change. Great post!
