Crossing rivers in ‘our country’
Crossing rivers in ‘ our country’ is about how some governmental policies fail.
Here is a story.
Many centuries ago, there was a country named ‘Our country’.
People in group A has to jump over at least ten rocks to cross rivers for daily economic survival.
Of course, some in group A were not as skilled or resourceful. They suffered and were left behind economically… embittered.
Group A was a side-product of this governmental policy.
This governmental economic policy aimed to help people in Group B. It allowed them to use bridges provided on these rivers.
Group B was an intended product of this governmental policy.
One season, monsoons came thundering and lashing mercilessly. Flash floods destroyed many bridges and homes.
Life had to continue. Most of group A people continued to cross the rivers of life as they used to.
But many people… in group B were left stranded and lost. They were handicapped without the bridges. Only a few strong ones were able to adapt to the situation- jumping over those rocks.
In ‘our country’, people voted the government. But somehow certain policies undermine their intended service to the people as a whole…in a country called ‘ Our country’.
