Why crib about Bangalore!!! Give solution

Every time something goes wrong in Bangalore, people start cribbing about it. It may be floods during the last monsoon or daily traffic jams or the goondaism that happened on the last day of Dr. RajKumar or an IT guy getting looted in railway station like any other fellow. People make it a big issue out of it. Start sending hatred mails. Big webs/channels try to make news of it. But none of this highly educated people have time for giving solution/work on it.

We all know that infrastructure in Bangalore is bad. Like any other politicians in India, here too politicians are not good. But did any of us try to raise our voice against government/BMP. NO. None of us have time for it. I wonder how many of us voted last time.

Bangalore has around 30% of its population within the age group of 23-30. Most of them well educated and working. I haven’t seen anybody coming out for any cause but they have a big list of complaints about police, RTO and administration. But I don’t see any complaints lodged by them to anti-corruption squad (Lokayukta). Justice Venkatachala is doing a great job to reduce the corruption. Why don’t we give a complaint to him instead of complaining in public forum?

If a fly over construction is going late. Why don’t we raise a RIT or PIL forcing Govt. to fasten the work?

I am not just blindly supporting Bangalore. What ever is happening is bad. But what disturbs me more is the attitude of the youth towards the problem. Each and every one of us wants everything to be perfect. None of us are ready to come out of our comfort zone and fight. How is it going to help Bangalore?

    As far as the problems goes it very true that it does exist and kindly let me know a place/city where there are no problems, and there is no use in jst cribbing abt it, as u pointed out we will have to submit a PIL abt the slow pace of construction of Flyovers, y not we as a youngsters do hav some responsiblity towards the improvement of the society, no use sitting infront of the comp in a AC room and sending 100 of mails to other states/friends telling BAngalore is bad, this place sucks, and so on.let us take a step forward and do something fruitful.I agree there are problems, let us think abt a solution rather than jst complaining, send a mail to CM, instead of sending mails abt problems here to a friend! iam not telling CM is gonna immediatly read ur mail and reply to, atleast make an attempt.
    Iam not completly supporting on wat is happning arnd me, just pointing that this kind of problem is there in every city in INDIA, since all of the sudden this city became the so called IT HUB the focus came into this city, so as a citizen of this state, lets do something fruitful rather than cribbing abt issues.

    Young people alone are not to be blamed. It is the politicians and other bureaucrats, most of them are not properly educated and have sick old mentality, too be blamed and they are the main culprits.

    When they knew that Bangalore would grow to such an extent they should have planned in a proper manner well in advance. These people are all after petty money and that too with a short-sightedness.

    And this is not enough, they are also removing out people like Narayanamurthy who could have hold the flag and leaded us to a better Bangalore.

    It’s now our (common people) responsibility to do some better to the city we live in, irrespective of the extent of the deed. We should start from our very own home and daily lives and think about doing good to the environment. Some of the things we can practise are:
    1. Protest any wrong thing like corruption and bribe.
    2. Spread the awareness to others
    3. Maintain cleanliness even outside of your house.
    4. Save water and electricity.
    5. Respect people of all age, creed and cast.

    You are an Indian by birth :)
    I have to agree with you… and i think we shd form/ become members of NGOs to help serve our part.
    WHat i mean is that we shd spread awareness about the evils around us!
    We shd go around and make ppl realise the importance of their votes.
    We shd spread awareness about the evil doings of the ppl in power.
    We shd help ppl find local leaders and encourage them to run for office.
    We, basically, shd make others realise that we exist.

    It has become habit for people to keep blaming Bangalore for anything and everything. Not just individuals but even the corporate companies.

    These people are not appreciating what they have got from Bangalore but busy in criticizing the city and the people. Everybody living in Bangalore must realize that each of them is contributing for city’s problems. As the author said, they should just not crib but take actions to help the city.

    Hey man,
    that was a great one… though for many it may seem like a lesson right out of RDB… this is indeed true… things may not work at the first attempt… but the attempt will surely bear fruits.. ok lets stop the philosophy…

    guys just think… why do we crib when… WE are responsible for the government being there… WE are responsible for the city including its cleanliness and glamor… WE can make a difference… it is just a matter of time and effort… lets make small contributions like walking up to the nearest dustbin to throw the chocolate wrapper… and can go on to actually casting our votes…

    Remember if we cant do some things good… the least we can is .. not do anything bad…

    Cheers to bangalore… we are still the best in many ways… look at the climate… the people… the culture… the best city to work.. our home… hey check out the volvos too.. :)and many more

    Our biggest draw back is that we accept defeat before v the battle begins. We have the mindset that the management from top to bottom is corrupt and even if we raise our voice, it will not be heard. I totally agree with fact that there are infrastructure and other problems in Bangalore and there is corrupt management as well. But, which state in India doesn’t have these problems? But, lets do whatever we can to try and resolve these issues. To all the people in Bangalore having negative attitude towards Bangalore,” I DO NOT THINK YOU WILL FIND A PERFECT PARADISE ON EARTH, BUT YOU CAN DEFINETELY WORK TOWARDS MAKIING A PLACE CLOSE TO BEING A PARADISE. EVERY PLACE HAS ITS POSITIVE AS WELL AS NEGATIVE ASPECTS.STOP CRIBBING,COME OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND CHECK ON HOW MUCH YOU HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO MAKING BANGALORE A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE”

    I agree with you. I too am a Bangalorean by birth and I love the city, the attitude of today’s youth really troubles me. All they do is blame others for the situation.
    They have absloutely no tolerance for one another and are so hot headed too. Just take the example of Ambar on this very site, hes just a little kid of 24 years and is riding high on his immaturity.
    People like him who have come to Bangalore from other states, have no right to comment on our dear city and also throw stones at others. Its terrible to see this noble metblog site getting corrupted by short sighted fools like Ambar. The same would apply to today’s youth in Bangalore.
