Talking about our own country India, we have a variety of problems, ranging from, inequality, castism, class issues, gender discrimination, female feticide, educational inequality, homosexual recognition, lack of infrastructure, poverty, corruption, legal flaws, and so on. The list is almost endless. This is how things are, when we talk of problems they seem infinite, we can go on listing them in a never ending manner, but when we talk of solutions, most of us has one answer, “nothing can happen”. This is the approach we need to change. We have a long way to go before the social status of our country changes and therefore it is time we start stepping in the social arena and work unitedly to bring in changes. Only with little steps, gradually taken, constantly worked out, will lead to bigger and better changes and improved social situations.
