Whenever any senior member of my organisation retires from his job, a question that bothers me is, "if someone who has to perform limited duties and responsibilities has to retire once he attends sixty years of age, irrespective of his fitness and good health, then why the gentlemen who have got huge responsibility to run the entire nation are allowed to continue in their office even when they are old enough and can't even walk or speak properly....???
And now the first citizen of India, 76 years old Madam Pratibha Patil....on occasions one may forget who is she??? Because till now what does she has to her credit except for being present at the swearing ceremonies of ministers or saluting the National flag.....well, at her age what else you expect from her???...Do you want her to go for jogging like Obama goes...Oh come on, "Bachchi ki jaan loge kyaa???? kuch to age ka khyaal karo....."
I never raise question on their abilities or qualities as administrator, undoubtedly most of them are well experienced and highly qualified...in fact what i mean to say here is, when an ordinary Govt. employee is declared unfit to work further once he completes 60 years of age, how these Politicians can perform their best when they start the job at the age when an ordinary Govt employee is not treated as fit enough to continue with his job.....and if you look at the duties n responsibilities, you can very well imagine how much more energy and enthusiasm is needed to run a nation like India....As per the census record of 2011 India has the largest youth population in world.....what happened to them???....Where are they all??? Is this our Youngistan???
well, may be...."The older, the wiser perhaps"......!!!
