You know I am reminded of a story which I think explains our behavior at voters and citizens of this country. Maybe you have heard of the story but I think all of us need to be reminded of the same.
The story starts with a villager who is forced to climb on top of his house because of massive floods. He is a very religious and God fearing man. He believes in God unconditionally. So while he is sitting on the roof of his house, he prays to God to save him.
So while he is waiting on the roof to be saved by God, a rescue boat comes in to take him to safety but he refuses saying that God will save him. After sometime, a helicopter arrives to save but he refuses to take help saying that God will save him. Finally, he drowns.
When he meets God, he asks God why didn't he save him. God replied, "You fool, who do think sent the boat and the helicopter to rescue you? What can I do if you don't want to save yourself?"
We are all just like the villager praying that God will save us from these corrupt no-good politicians but God is already trying to help us. However, we are refusing help.
