Cry Of A Dying River...75

Rajendra Kshetri
I am no longer the river I was once
The river that flows in the land of 'Civil Societies '
'Civil Society '! What an awe-inspiring value-loaded concept!
What a game-changing idea of 'change and development '!
A game-changing idea to free people from coercion
A concept full of promises to keep
A perspective to put the State in the right perspective
The only hope for the silent masses to become vocal
The river that is yet to have a flavour of civil society
A taste of what a civil society is all about.
I am no longer the river I was once
The river that pins its hope on civil society
Civil society that puts societal interest above individual interest
Civil society that succeeds when everything else failed
The river that believes in the power of civil society
The power to transform passive State into pro-active
The power that propels the State to see and listen
The river that longs for a taste of such power
Where is the power of civil society
We lost in the power of 'Frontal Organisation '.
