India’s biggest festival is in play with the 2019 General Elections and the time off should have could have and would have been long gone. Be the change you want to see and express yourself! Now is the opportunity to reflect upon subjects that make a difference, look beyond our convenience and use our actions to make a significant change. Don’t vote because you like the party, don’t vote because a leader is charismatic but vote for the topics that matter to you.
Here are 4 issues that we think merit a vote!
Water pollution is one of the most troubling environmental issues the country is and has been facing since a while. Rising pollution of rivers is a significant concern for the people of India and in turn for the Indian Government. Being a source of livelihood for several individuals, the situation calls for thorough examination and support from the people of the country. Do your bit, begin by not littering water bodies!
Freedom of Speech
The right to express yourself without censorship, restraint or legal penalty is the need of the hour. No matter what – speaking up for what you believe in is a must.
This is the most questionable and contentious concern of the country. The day we are able to change mindsets and teach our boys how to respect and honor the opposite sex – this menace will stop threatening the women of this nation.
It has been witnessed that with the passage of time, the rich have become richer and the poor still poor. We need ingenious ideas from any quarter and a leader who can fix the gap and erase this line of disparity.
