Many right thinking citizens have launched / joined new political organizations that have sprouted with a promise to create a clean government and offer good governance to the citizens, if elected. But they are not able survive the onslaught of big political prties with huge funds and sort-term promises to the poorer sections of society,just to appease them to catch their attention and vote.
Instead why not pitch for transparency and accountability in all actions of all individuals and organizations. It would help save thousands of crores of tax payers' money and help transform communities and society.
We can move away from Governance and instead move towards self-administration in a transparent way where any one and every one can voice their views and cast thier vote on any subject without fear or favour.
This would drive away the fly-by-night and get-rich-quick politicians, middlemen, businessmen, bureaucrats, etc. We can do away with many of the present day unproductive employment and services which only helps to propogate more and more of their clan to the detriment of the larger community and society.

I found the R-Day celebrations being attended mainly by the high and mighty on invitation and hardly any sight of common man was there. In the name of security, only the elite are allowed to witness. What about the 80% of India which constitutes the marginalized and rural poor? Where is the R-Day celebrations for them? It was mainly the military mite on show. The cultural display was far behind. There was hardly any thing to showcase the efforts for upliftment of the poor, except just one tableau on IAY. Should it not be the priority of the Government to focus on the 80% needy population of India? Why not wean away from terrorism and wars and get in to real development of the nation? Why not introduce transparency for accountability in all actions of all for transforming India from a poor nation to a rich nation?
