Dear Netas, Don’t Forget We Have the Power to Vote You Out

My Report

Video Editor: Deepthi Ramdas

I’m a social media activist and a freelancer from Delhi. I hope to educate and encourage youngsters to make a sound decision when it comes to elections. Today’s vote can be a part of tomorrow’s big change.

Keeping today’s India in mind, I have written a poem/rant that best explains our situation.

I’m a common man, and I am a fool.

(I’m the middle class)
To remove black money, I was asked to stand in queues outside banks.
They later changed the colour of the notes and told me black money has returned!
I’m a common man, but am I a fool?

(I’m the unemployed)
I’m running around places to find a job.
I have just graduated from college, and I cannot find a job.
I am also a 50-year-old man who has given his life to his job, but has now been fired.
I am a common man, and I am a fool.

(I am a journalist)
I am a journalist, and the channel I work for has been sold (for political interests).
My own innocence has become my enemy. False cases have been filed against me.
I am a common man, and I am a fool.

(I am a businessman)
I am a businessman, and I was told my earnings would increase in abundance.
Not only did my earnings not increase, but now I have to pay GST as well!
I am a common man, and I am a fool.

(I am the youth)
I am the youth, I was promised that my tax money would be used for development.
But with tax-payers’ money, huge statues are being constructed.
And for what? Political benefits.
I am a common man, and I am a fool.

But, those who make false promises forget that elections come every five years.
I am a common man, but I am NOT a fool.
