After the demolition of the twin towers in Noida, the market of various debates is hot. Some people are calling it not the result of the judicial process, but a game of some kind of masculinity. Some consider it an attack on corruption, while some consider it a collapse of the highest peak of arrogance. There are also debates that in a country like India, where poverty has not yet become a past, but remains unprecedented, how far it is appropriate to demolish a building built at a cost of two hundred crores by spending twenty crores more.
Instead of being demolished, it should have been developed into public facilities like a hospital, library, Dharamsala, and hostel. Suggestions are also being given to some people from old age homes to helpless patients and labourers. Some people are also saying with a suppressed tongue that ‘Writer’s house’ could also have been built. The idea was also not a bad one, given the number of writers wandering for housing in Delhi and the National Capital Region, except that some may make the issue controversial by raising the basic question of what is the need of writers in society.
Therefore, avoiding the possibility of being controversial is also another name for prudence. Smart people believe, and rightly believe that cooking casserole with a thought about a building that no longer exists will only cook the brain, not the casserole. Therefore, leaving the khaya pulao and worrying about the disposal of the original pulao i.e. eighty thousand tons of debris. Some people are worried about this. Some people are engaged in accounting for the adverse effects on the environment.
The point is fair. The use of thirty-eight hundred kilograms of explosives will have some adverse effects on the environment. So many things are going on along the lines of Hari Anant Hari Katha Ananta. As soon as we focus on the debris, the first thing that comes to mind is who is the owner of the debris. What is the rubble? And above all, how to dispose of the debris, what are the problems or challenges in the disposal? As far as the newness of the debris is concerned, it is not a difficult task to determine. If the tower was of corruption, then the debris would also be of corruption. The only problem is that corruption may be an abstract concept, its debris is tangible and concrete. Cement, rods, sand, iron and wood are all present in it.
Therefore, the question of its ownership is bound to arise. However, no one has claimed ownership over it so far. In this confusion, the story ‘The owner of the rubble’ is often remembered. The newly built house of Gani (the main character of the story) was under the watch of Rakhe Pehelwan. Taking advantage of the riots and chaos, Rakhe Pehalwan killed Ghani’s son Chirag and his entire family.
By the time he was in possession of the house, someone set the house on fire. Soon the newly built house turned into rubble. Now the Rakhe wrestler became the owner of the rubble. No one could even look at the debris that was there. However, public opinion was different on this – ‘Badda used to be the owner of the rubble! Actually, the debris is neither his nor Ghani’s, the debris belongs to the government.’ But the government had many other tasks.
Why would she go to claim the wreckage? But a dog of the locality challenged the wrestler. He sat on the rubble. Seeing the dog occupied there, the wrestler became furious. ‘The wrestler picked up a lump and threw it towards the dog, the dog retreated a little, but it did not stop barking.
The wrestler, abusing the dog in his mouth, stood up from there and slowly went and lay down on the cob of the well. When the wrestler left there, the dog came down in the street and started barking facing the well. After barking for a long time, when he did not see any creature moving in the street, he blinked once and returned to the rubble and sat there in the corner and started growling.
It is not yet known whether any dog has claimed the debris of corruption or not, but it is clear like a mirror that the debris, whether of development, whether or corruption, is an essential part of our modern civilization.
Wherever you go to the metropolis, you will see a mountain of rubble. Even if we do not investigate, it is understandable that some part of the debris has come directly through the path of development, while some have completed the journey through the path of corruption.
We live in different concepts, for them They keep giving their lives, but they do not know the simple thing that, however intangible a concept may be, its debris is solid and tangible. Whether the debris is of development or of corruption, its disposal is a civilizational challenge.
