Cynicism is our DNA

Some of B schools and even new IIMs have replaced GD with WAT hence, Written Analysis Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process.
 
Read WAT topic:  Cynicism is our DNA
 
Past events shape our present and the way we think. Sometimes, we may be cynical for no reason but most of the time, our cynicism stems from our past experiences, where people have been dishonest and selfish.
 
In India, the public is essentially cynical about politicians and their intentions because in the last few decades, politicians have been making empty promises. 
 
In December 2012, a rape case, which occurred in Munirka, Delhi, made headlines all over the world and at that time, the government, in an attempt to win the trust of the public, especially women, assured them that all possible efforts will be made to ensure the safety of women in India. 
 
However, even after a year, violence against women has not deteriorated. On the contrary, violence against women has increased. According to reports, between 2012 and 2013, there has been an increase in the crime rate against women by 35.75%. 
 
This goes to show that the government has been ineffective in curbing violence against women. This is just one of the many promises that the government has failed to fulfill and this has led to the public’s distrust in the government and its policies.
 
So, it is unfair to say that cynicism is our DNA – cynicism is the result of failed actions of the authorities and the government of India.
 
Cynicism, over a period of time, can become our DNA. There is a popular saying that once a person tells a lie, all his truths become questionable. As human beings, we try to trust someone. 
 
Once that trust is broken, it is hard or even impossible to fix it. In India, the public has lost trust in the government and the accumulation of distrust over several decades has led to the addition of cynicism in our DNA strand. The trust that people had on the government has been broken and it is difficult to mend it. 
 
So, even if the government tries to fulfill its promises, we don’t appreciate its efforts. In 2009, the government reported that India was ready to launch its National Solar Mission, with the aim of generating 1,000 MW of power by 2013. And in July 2012, the Indian government managed to fulfill its promise. 
 
Instead of celebrating or appreciating the government’s efforts, the public became cynical. The public was unsure if the government was truly interested in the welfare of the public or if it was fulfilling the promise for its selfish needs. This is what happens when the trust in an individual is shattered – even a hundred positive deeds will not help in fixing the tarnished image.
 
Cynicism has become the DNA of majority of the people. However, it is unfair to say that our cynicism is not justified. We have become cynical because of the false promises made by the government, which have been accumulated over a period of time.
 
To succeed as a nation, we ought to let go of our cynicism, appreciate the government for what it is doing, and help our leaders in achieving national goals.
