 तुम चलो तो हिंदुस्तान चले ||
नन्हे कदमो की ये कोशिश है ||
 हमी से तो  उमीदे है ||
हमी से तो हर मुश्किल आसान है ||
हम में एक  हीरो है ||
("if you will move the India will move too,
Tried by those little feet of the nation,
we are the guarantor,
we are the handler of difficult situations,
there is a HERO(conqueror) inside us.")
I have heard, saw people complaining about long traffic jams.
Maximum times one of the reason follows :
* Mismanagement
* fall of trees on the roads
*roads under construction
*one way road

and whats the reaction of the crowd at such times ? Abusing the government for lack of concern, getting annoyed by the situation,shouting at the nearby vehicle drivers for giving then the side as if you are at highest priority, choosing for the wrong side so as to overtake everyone and then blocking the traffic on other side too :P
Its your country so isn't it yours duty to set the things right ?
Mismanagement took place due to the absence of traffic police at the crossroads. Can anyone dare to give 10 minutes and direct the traffic ? "NO" because thats not our job. We can spend half an hour in groaning, criticizing and complaining about the situation but we cannot give 10 minutes in managing the traffic.
A huge tree fall in the middle of the road, hindered the traffic motion. Can we group of people lend our hand to move it at the side.? "NO" because thats not our job. We can sit in the car wait for it to be moved by anyone else except us or wait for someone to take the initiative. Why ? Our way is blocked by a huge stuff then why we wait for someone else to drag it away. DO IT YOURSELF FOR YOUR OWN SELF !
Believe me dare to take initiative as a leader and people are waiting to follow you. They just want a LEADER,thats it !!
Yes its my country and tomorrow if i will fall in such a situation i will surely step ahead to solve the problem, I am an INDIAN and i know my duties. I will try not to be afraid by the those eyes gazing at me when i initiate something because when i will succeed the courage will overpower everything.

PS : just tried to translate those lines of hindi into its english version. The meaning will  approximately be the same :P

Your are so right.
We expect others to do the right things first. We must start with ourselves.
