A society is a group of humans.It is an economic, social, industrial infrastructure made up of a varied multitude of individuals.There is a subtle difference between society and culture.. Society is a disciplined arrangement of social relations, while culture is made up of beliefs and symbolic forms.
The distinction in various classes of society, the disharmony in behaviour of a different strata of society , that of the powerful and the powerless, rich and the poor, the discrimination of old and young, the alienation of the physically challenged pose an abusive threat to society.
A news clipping of a Passport issuing officer’s misuse of her authority is amazing and nauseating at the same time.. She makes Rs 5millionper month ,by issuing emergency passports under the Tatkal scheme, forming a nexus with a travel agent . She runs a parallel office in her home.The CEO is her husband, a nephew, of a Minister.This reflects the abuse of bureaucracy.
The next issue ,is the arrest of the former chairman of a nationalised bank, for sanctioning a loan to the most undeserving customer. The Chairman, it is rumoured acted on the behest of a powerful politician, now dead.It is an incident of a thorough misuse of the high office
The third episode is a most interesting. The highly melodramatic event stunt is the fasting schedule of the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu. He motored to the Marina , in the early hours , was wheeled to the portals of the Anna Samadhi. There was hushed buzz and a swished bustle. He was followed by his wife, his mistress, his paramour, his daughters, sons and nephews, along withe the batch of officials , all assembling at the wee hours , as the Chief minister is to undertake fast against the military excess of the Sri Lankan government. A cosy cot was rolled over, and the Chief minister was placed in the bed, with his near and dear ones hovering over him. News flashed all over the state. His party men made similar feat in all major cities and towns. Television channels brought live relay and in a matter of six hours , the chief minister has ended his fast, as the Central government prevailed over its counterpart to stop the war.What a colossal waste of money, time , energy and abuse of administrative machinery .This is an outrageous attempt to brandish the super power wrested on the Chief Minister.
These are the most recent incidents that created a cumbersome apprehension and a strangling evidence that mar the society, corrupt the mind and disenchant the society .
