Social Responsibility - A Train We Missed!

People are becoming self-centred day by day. Gone are the days, when people fed not only their family members but also neighbours and strangers. Volunteering and corporate social responsibility were not buzz words those days since they were naturally present in people's way of life. People were closely related socially and were ready to help each other in time of difficulties.

But, now the situation is very different. Everyone is too busy to take care of himself/herself. Most of us hardly care for others' problems. Of course, we do but to certain limits and we cannot deny this. We can trick to excuse ourselves by confessing it with an intelligent blame on the fast-moving and materialistic world, but if you are honest, you would accept the fact that most of the time we deliberately keep ourselves away from socially responsible attempts. Innocence is fading away.  You would scratch your head if asked for a meagre donation to an orphanage but would be ready to spend lavishly for your birthday party!!! You will be very careful in not making others comfortable at the cost of your comfortableness!! Your neighbour's sufferings are none of your business! You hate nuclear family since parents intervene in 'your' privacy! At last, you would leave the country to ruin at the hands of the corrupt and fly to United States!!!
