Now we have specialized to transfer social responsibilities
Residents of India are always looking for ways to push social responsibilities to other entities, including the government. No one is keen on taking over the responsibility of social welfare and environmental care.
We litter anywhere on the roads and pollute the air and water bodies. In our eyes, we believe that taking care of the environment and social issues is the government’s job.
Similarly, organizations are only concerned about their profits and they too transfer their social responsibilities to other entities like non-governmental organizations and welfare organizations.
Over the past few years, the concept of corporate social responsibility has started to seep into the corporate culture. Companies, apart from producing goods and services, also play their part in enhancing the lives of the citizens and protecting the environment.
For example, Proctor & Gamble came up with the Shiksha program that helps to educate more children in India. And to date, Proctor & Gamble has helped over 280,000 underprivileged children by giving them access to education.
Similarly, Reckitt Benckiser has come up with many corporate social responsibility programs for its brand ‘Dettol’. The organization inculcates healthy lifestyle and hygiene by promoting the use of Dettol products in rural areas. This way, health problems and diseases can be eliminated from the Indian society.
Although there are a number of companies that are doing their part for the citizens and the environment, there are many others who are simply irresponsible. They simply believe in taking from the society and not giving back to it. It is because of such irresponsible behavior from organizations and individuals that we are unable to move past the ‘developing country’ status.
People in developed countries take it upon themselves to improve the social situation in the country. In Japan, if people are unable to find dustbins in public places, they take their litter home and recycle them. They don’t push or transfer social responsibilities to other entities. This is the reason why Japan has progressed so much over the past few years.
Only when the people of a country work together for the welfare of the country will there be development and progress. A country with irresponsible citizens will only lead to more social problems.
We should not be self-centered and should work closely with our neighbors and fellow citizens to eradicate social problems and enhance the lives of Indians.
