Why people? Not leaders

The events that are happening in this southern part of India are really sad. There are leaders who are trying to make this visibility and political career with the separate state and the united state arguments. Unfortunately, the students and the people are becoming scapegoats and are loosing their lives in the name of sacrifices.

Surprisingly the so called leaders who are on hunger strike for more than a week are suddenly finding lot of energy to walk and run away to different places. I am not sure if they are born with lot of energy to live without food for that many days. I have tried this (living on without eating any food but with water alone) an year back or so but was about to live normal for 3 or 4 days but not more than that.

These guys I believe are are pretending hunger strikes. And poor people believe this as true and thinking that either seperate statehood is good or bad, jumping into agitation mode.

Irony is that there are people around 100 or more than that who committed suicides either for or against the seperate stood hood for a geographical region of this part of India, and surprisingly not even a single political party leader sacrified his/her life toward this cause. It is always the people who are paying for any cause that is raised by the so called leaders. Its like aparthied to me. Aren't we equal in this country? why the hell is that lives of very few people are very very important than remaining billion people?

May be we should explore creating a independent controlling body which monitors all the activities of each leader and it must have right to disqualify from contesting in elections or enjoying any govt benefits political or back door entry, If they have deviated from certain set norms. This body should have the power to execute leaders if they are corrupt or trying to instigate people against each other.

Or simply let us kill all the leaders iteratively until we get good ones. There is no real development that is happening because of our leaders (in power or in opposition). They are making money that is too much for even few dozens of their family and generations but are least bothered about the real development.

Why is that poor is becoming more pooor? why no one is listening? we still have villages without proper drinking water or electricity or roads. We still have people dying of hunger. We still have people struggling to feed their children. We still have people selling their daughters for sex trade because they are not able to feed them or survive on their own. We still have people who are sleeping on roads/footpath. We still have students with no career ahead (lots of them). Govt doing lip service to all the ideals and serving only who demand something (whether they need it or not). We have reservations to keep certain sections of the population happy. We still have people who are struggling for education while so many other people are getting govt sponsored education.

Can't we think of a better nation? If situation goes like this, what if I go back to my village and announce freedom to my village into a seperate nation? May be I use friends abroad to fund my nation and then show rest of India(and its leaders) how to make a great nation.

Any one listening? why only people are dying for any cause, why not leaders?
