When one feels something is impossible, it is the only impossibility, unsuccessfully trying to convince myself hard that I could still pass in the System Engineering exam. It really feels bad when I should be aiming to change the world I am even unable to tell that Prof of who talks of pioneering a change to first change himself.
So do you too feel ‘Powerless’? Or you feel that the term ‘change’ is being overrated these days? Let’s say you are in an ambulance and fighting for time, what would you sacrifice to help reckless Indian traffic to realize that they need to change? So change does feel necessary when we are at the receiving end. But do we have to wait for that time, why can’t we change before the alarm bells start ringing?
Everything we do has consequences, or here I should say everything we don’t do has consequences. Every time you leave your room without switching the lights(especially you Mr. _____) just keep in mind this electricity could have been useful to power a hospital in a far off village which receives just 2hrs of electricity now and eventually could have helped save lives. And whenever you ignore a dripping tap just imagine a picture of a small kid fighting to penetrate through huge crowds to reach the water tanker in order to get water for her ailing mother during hot summers in some slum of India. Though sounds a bit melodramatic but his mother’s fate does lie in your hand.
It’s not necessary to do something big to bring about the change, just whenever you see electricity being wasted stop that, water being wasted stop that. Every time you do it tell yourselves it’s not just that environment that you are helping but you are also saving lives. Soon you’ll no more feel ‘Powerless’ and then may be we can actually be Humans.
