Violating Rules, a New Vogue Among People….

Letters to Editor

Rules are a set of explicit regulations which helps in the smooth functioning of a particular administrative section. Rules are always made for a good purpose and for the welfare of the people only. But, the people seem not wanting their good. From students to old Indian citizens, no one wishes to follow rules and they try to follow shortcuts to do their works easily. The students violate rules in the school through many activities like running in the corridors; not listening to the teachers and the list goes on. To get away from the fine and penalty arising because of breaking traffic rules in India, people try to bribe police officials by offering them with cash.

However, bribing an official is a crime itself and should not be committed. But, the biggest problem occurs when the rule violators try to bribe the traffic officials and the officials instead of stopping them and asking them not to violate rules, do accept the bribe offered by the violators. A common violation is driving being drunk. Walking along a wrong trajectory is a huge problem in India, that is, the people want to walk on their desired side of the road, but not on the side which they have been instructed to walk on. So, by this, the cars and other people have to face problems too. This also leads to rules violation that is walking on the correct lane.

In India, it is a trend to break a queue to get a service faster, and it is even seen that the one who breaks the queue gets a faster service than those standing in a queue. So, it is one of the constraints behind not breaking rules. Even after many laws and plans started by the government of India, people do not tend to keep their own country clean and health ultimately. Even after initiating a programme like ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan’ by the honourable Prime Minister of India that aims to maintain cleanliness in the country,God knows if the people of India are that busy that they cannot even throw different waste in their respective dustbins. When they don’t throw the waste in the dustbins this leads to mixing of different kinds of waste materials and create a lot of problems. Do grow up co-dwellers of this great nation or stop blaming the system with a high neck.
