But… we still have many problems and societal issues: poverty and illiteracy; schools and/or teachers who don’t teach; bad living and working conditions; terrorism; NGOs with foreign money trying to destroy the country; corruption; many places government does not work; unnecessary protests by students and political parties with no concrete or practical suggestions; rapes; other crimes; too many illegals; lack of safety; people selling blood, kidneys or children for money; a large population; some who do anything to beat up the country but don’t contribute; a legal system that is too slow; some may say a Supreme Court that feels totally unaccountable; and many more.
Instead let us ask ourselves: WHAT IS THE ONE THING I (EACH PERSON) WILL DO TO MAKE INDIA A BETTER PLACE IN THE COMING YEAR?

Tej Bahadur Yadav, the Border Security Force soldier is a hero. At great personal risk, by speaking out about the lack of proper food and diet and even possible corruption, he has ensure this critical issue is highlighted and addressed. In the process he has safeguarded the life, well being security of not only other BSF soldiers, and units but the possible existence of such terrible working conditions at all paramilitary and Indian armed forces locations. Our soldiers guard our borders in difficult terrain, extreme weather conditions against a hostile army. They cannot fight if they are hungry. Let their be full review of the working conditions and a proper fix follow. Any likely corruption should be eliminated. As Gautam Gambhir said, the news made us “gutted, distraught and ashamed”. Let us not punish the messenger… really a hero!
