I swear…

March 3, 2009

Here’s an oath that came up on the front page of the Times OF India newspaper.

I swear that this time I will stand up.
Not for what i believe in, but for what I dont.
This time I will vote.Not for but against.
Against my own helplessness.
Against my own laziness.
Against two words called Chalta hai.
Aganist short cuts in queues.
Against cheating in exams.
Against Kharcha Paani in offices.
Against powerless inquiry commissions.
And powerful vote banks.
Against religion in politics.
And politics in religion.
Against illegal constructions.
And legal loopholes.
Agaisnt every cynic, every non-believer.
Against the belief that nothing will change.
Against the feeling that my vote cannot make a difference.
Against every excuse for not voting.
I will do this without fear or shame.
Because only by voting against all that is
destroying our today, will I give my children
something to vote for tomorrow.
Lead india ’09
Let’s make this vote count.

I took the oath. Did you?
Stand up and speak out. Vote now( I mean whenever the elections are)

    I wish all the politicians take this oath, well even if they do, I wish the value it enough to put it into practice. It may be asking for too much, but its there’s always something called hope right?

    ya it may be asking for too much but as you said, there is nothing wrong in hoping that our politicians will take the oath and stand by it.
