but the thing is society has that inherent disconnect which is played on by the politicians..and its not a recent thing...but since forever..
The entire freedom struggle, it tuk 100 years because people were not united...small groups individually would raise their voice..not exaqctly align with each other ( yes lack of press and ocmmunication are also reason but not this big)...
1857 is important, because thats the first time hindu-muslim came together..and British knew very well that this should not happen again...
Nehru-Jinaah is also a result of that..
I know people say we are brothers and we can live in harmony...deep down i think society wants that..However, the sad truth is this too...the deep down there is some sort of disconnect too which is prevalent...
It comes out best when you read the freedom struggle rt from the time of modernists...and why society was not participating..till gandhi came..his achievement ofcourse being involvement of peasanty and thus the United India..
Even today, you and I might not do it..but overall in India there are issues...even between hindu/muslim..
and till the time society continues to harbour these feelings, someone or the other will always find a way to ruffle them and use it against them..
( Let's see what is now happening in Muzaffarnagar doen't spread)
ONUS is on us..
But yes, another thing to consider..
whoever has seen partition will not be able to get over that hate...( easy to say but close to impossible).. and hence, the role o fnew generation is so important..because it is free of all such budens..
But alas, youth in India ( and don't limit it to a few individuals) is still not participating nor is interested in state affairs...
yet, the good thing is..there is a definite rise in contribution from the youth although from specific corners...rise in NGOs, accepting home job offers, enterpreuership..et all...
only if we cud curb the evil side of corruption...complete elimination is impossible..
