It is a story of little sparrow which most of you might have heard. The little sparrow was standing on beach of a giant ocean, hardly visible against the blue expanse. It was time and again dipping its tail into the water of the ocean and taking it out striking in the already wet sand. The process went on and on! Someone observing the action asked her as to what she was doing!
“I am trying to empty the ocean”
Surprised, the observer said “what you can never do it”!
“I know that,” pat came the reply.
“Then why you are wasting your time”?
“Lest I am blamed that I did not try”.
Most of us fail to take an action prejudging our failure to succeed. But we must learn that an effort for change has to be made without thinking of the results. A single action may motivate others to join in, and who knows, the ocean may be emptied!
The action of the four Supreme Court judges has to be seen in that perspective. They have done a great service to the nation and made their little contribution for the sake of saving democracy in India. Are there people who can join in in to save the important pilaar of democracy?
