Prohibition in Gujarat

The other day, I'd been watching the proceedings of the Assembly on Television. Home Minister Mr. Amit Shah agressively spoke to make his point that prohibition in gujarat was, is and will stay in Gujarat. The culture thrives to the fact with the principles of Mahatma Gandhi of a dry land.

The first step in solving a problem is to accept it and that he did. Even regretted and felt hurt self esteem that it happened with lives lost. He mentioned, "In earlier Government, there occured 13 incidents but in present government, this is the first!" Indeed, a bad fate of bootlegger-police-politician! One never can say, when next such incident may happen with ongoing activities in clandestine (and it is). Cops are transferred, reshuffled and stringent measures are taken, meetings held to identify ways and means to control. However, the fact remains, the frustrated, jobless, stressed, lonesome etc. are sure to fall prey to sort comfort. A need arise to solve these people issues and problems, create awareness on the hazards - now that dry measures are implemented and more stringent rules apply.

Narendra Modi Government needs to build the courage to go beyond and resolve for peoples' socio-economic-emotional issues to curb not only prohibition lapses but also other factors like suicide (are rising), seperations (are rising), hate, bickerings, etc. Time is changing and so is Economy - So will mindsets change!

What do you think? If you keep silence, one cannot bring about changes in a society, for sure.
