Anti-development is Anti-national too

Below are not exactly my words; got this post through a share.. But, the thoughts are exactly in-line and what lies in my mind too.

My problem with what's happening in the country is not about #BJP and #Congress, Or #JNU and anti-nationalism,  or #Jats and #reservation, Or Hindu Extremism and Muslim Extremism, Or Beef Ban and Porn Ban, Or #Kejriwal and #Modi, Or Ravish and that 'India wants to know' guy.

My problem is our mindspace being occupied with futile, useless, fruitless, negative, regressive thinking.

In an age when this country should be thinking of inventions and ideas, we are discussing subjects mentioned above.

I like Modi's 'Make in India' initiative. Why can't we discuss that and talk about it? That can be a game changer for this country if the entire nation gets involved in it and if the government practices it and not just makes hoardings out of it.

Why isn't the government and media talking about it?
Why is the subject of debate not development?
Why isn't #RSS talking about it?
Why aren't the Hindus or Muslims talking about it?
Why the news channels aren't focusing on it?
Why Indians on facebook not discussing it?
Or spreading that idea to the world?

Saffron or Green, Beef or Chicken, Porn or Sanskari channels, Temples or Mosques, Jats or Kashmiris aren't tools of development.  These subjects of conversations are anti-development. And anything that's anti-development is anti-national at-least for me.
