"We are not sure of our Netas"

Gone are the days when there were a few capable political leaders, also known as Netas, in India. Before India got its independence, the citizens were aware of the lifestyles and personalities of their leaders, including Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. We knew that Mahatma Gandhi had humble beginnings and had a vision for India – an independent state. Netas’ ideologies and their lives were transparent to the public and that’s why we were able to relate to them. Today, if we ask a common man about Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Pilot, or even Manmohan Singh, he would not be able to describe their upbringing or their contribution to the society.
Today, the number of Netas in the country is immense. We see new parties emerging and their numbers growing by leaps and bounds. Hence, it is difficult to keep track of our Netas and their lifestyles. When we think of Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka Gandhi, we end up referencing them to their ancestors like Indira Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Rajiv Gandhi. In addition, corruption is so rampant in India that it is difficult to differentiate corrupt officials from non-corrupt individuals. When Anna Hazare carried out a fast against corruption in 2011, the government claimed that Anna and his associates were corrupt and that his team was trying to gain publicity. So, it is difficult for a common man to understand our Netas. Should we trust the media? Is the media biased? If we don’t turn to media, how else will we get to know our Netas?
The aforementioned questions run in the mind of the common man today. Today, technology has reached such great heights that anyone can get information about a Neta or an individual by doing a search on the Internet. Although information is available and can be quickly accessed, one has to filter information based on its objectiveness before converting that into knowledge.
So, although we can get information about our Netas over the Internet, TV channels, and newspapers, we need to take this information with a pinch of salt. Not all public information is objective in nature. In addition, corruption is so rampant in India that the political arena is no longer transparent. Hence, the common man has to work hard to gain true information since it is not available easily on the public space.
