Are you willing to go help clean up the local pile of garbage at the end of your street? Extending this further, are you willing to give up your plush software job and work at the city government office, doing your part to keep the city clean?


Please dont take my post wrong, i am trying to understand what you are saying.
I dont remember having any garbage at the end of the street that i used to live , but supposing it is and supposing that i am willing to clean that, how can that be extended to me leaving my software job and working for the government.
I dont understand this whole sentence here. Why should i give up my job and work for the city government. Are you saying that me giving up my software job and working for the government is in some way related to me doing my part in keeping the city clean. Yet the example you gave is about software companies helping the government in keeping the city clean.
Correct me if i am wrong but are you saying that people working in the government are trying to keep the city clean and people doing software jobs are trying hard to keep it dirty ?
The rest of your post reflects my own ideas though, the change, the movement has to come from people themselves, poeple in neighbourhoods joining together in doing the good work. I have started noticing this, specially in apartment complexes. From mid to big sized apartment homes are starting this and i think thats a good start

RK: I am waiting for Messiah who will do things for me
Suppose the Messiah, who can transform the nation, arrives - in her limo - wearing a snazzy Gucci attire, with Prada shoes - asks you to do things for her - will you?
ML: I respect your views. Also, nice to hear..
Thanks
just curious, how long have you lived in India
About 25 years.
Have you ever worked in/for a govt. establishment ?
Nope.
Forget, govt., have you ever worked in India ?
Yes - for about one year.
Before I make any comments....
Can you make your comments now?
VK: I dont understand this whole sentence here
My point is - if we want to see a change, why can't we roll up our sleeves and make the change? You know how our government offices are - inert and lackadaisical, filled with obsequious hypocrites eager to make a quick buck and get home early. Let us, with our bright ideas, drive and motivation, enter this system - and do our part to change it.
Yes - the software companies are now taking an interest, afterall, their presence has contributed to the influx of people into the city - and it's resulting strain on the city's infrastructure and resources - so now it's payback time. But their contribution is only indirect - it's still the same old government employees, and attitudes. If you can get directly involved in the government - and do your best in shaking up and invigorating this institution, you will make a far greater contribution towards our nation's betterment.
I have been secretly harboring this idea about working for the city government - but it'll be tough convincing my family, having returned from six years of a software profession in America
