Disregarded Voice

We have the freedom to put forth what we wish to say,  freedom to speak freely or freedom of expression. Something which we call as Freedom of Speech. But what if this freedom is actually overlooked?

Let me explore what I want to say. I am an engineering student, fed up of the poor quality of the teaching we get in our college. There are such lecturers in our college who are even not worth of being called as teachers. I wonder how such damn people are alloted as lecturers to impart knowledge to the students. So, out of frustration, we tried hard to raise our voice against it. Not once, many times.  But unfortunately (and expectedly), it fell on the deaf ears of the authorities.  😕

Apart from this, we- as a common man, face many situations when we feel to raise voice against something, for a particular purpose. But then it is hanged over until you lose all your patience. 😐

Also, we know that still there are many families in our country wherein the women’s voice is never listened to. She is always kept deprieved of what she wants to express.

From all this, I think if we have freedom of speech then it is probably needed to get heard. If the voice raised of any purpose is disregarded, it would definitely lead us nowhere. So, I just want to say that we need to make a little space for our freedom of speech to get heard.

Why not in Olympics?

India is doing well in the Common Wealth Games 2010, winning 20+ gold medals in all. The whole country is proud of the participants for their performance. But, given a thought, a question arised in my mind that, if we can acquire gold medals in CWG then why can’t we do that in Olympics? Why is our country considered amongst the one with lowest number of Olympic medals?

As per Wikipedia, “India is remarkable among nations for having won very few Olympic medals despite a population exceeding a billion, around half of them under the age of 25.”

What do you think, where do we lag behind? And where is Young India?

I think, there are very less foundations for the training of the sports like atletics, shooting, archery, boxing, etc here in India. Thats why the young population don’t find any scope in this field. If such training foundations are made available at the district level, then a bit of the crowd from every district would get attracted towards it, from which genuine players would be promoted. And the compititon amongst the refined players will give the quality players which would represent India.

Also, if these games are represented at National level with glamour as that given to IPL, it would bring stability and fame to players.

So, if such thing is implemented, then we would get few Heros from those games who will be the youth icons of our country and will inspire the young India to march towards the Olympic games.
