Rising crimes in our city

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

RISING CRIMES IN OUR CITY MUMBAI IS AN INDIAN CITY THAT IS OSTENSIBLY TERMED THE ECONOMIC CAPITAL OF INDIA AND IT IS PROJECTED THAT A VERY HIGH PERCENTAGE OF THE TOTAL VOLUME OF BUSINESS CARRIED OUT IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS TRANSACTED HERE. MUMBAI IS THEREFORE A FRONTLINE CITY OF INDIA AND IS OFTEN THE DREAM DESTINATION OF MANY AN INDIAN WHO ASPIRES TO MAKE IT BIG IN INDIA. QUITE NATURALLY THEREFORE, IT IS PERCEIVED THAT EVERY DAY, A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IS LANDING IN MUMBAI HOPING TO MAKE THE GRADE, AND THESE PEOPLE HAIL FROM ALL CORNERS OF THE COUNTRY. THIS MAKES A SECTION OF THE ORIGINAL MUMBAIITES AS THEY ARE GENERALLY TERMED, QUITE PROUD OF THEIR CITY, WHILE ANOTHER SECTION IS APPALLED BY THE UNBRIDLED ENTRY OF NEWCOMERS INTO THE CITY, WHICH THEY FEEL IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE CITY ADMINIDSTRATION BEING STRETCHED TO THEIR LIMITS IN THE UPKEEP OF THE CITY AND ITS INFRASTRUCTURE. ...read more.

IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE NOTE THAT DESPITE THESE PROBLEMS THERE IS A GREAT INFLUX OF BUSINESS INTERESTS IN THE CITY; MORE BUSINESS LEADS TO MORE OPPORTUNITIES. MORE OPPORTUNITIES LEAD TO MORE COMPETITION AS MORE PEOPLE ARE ATTRACTED TO THE PROSPECTS OF PROSPERING HERE.

Conclusion

IT IS ALMOST CERTAIN THAT IF THE PERPETRATOR WERE TO JUST REFLECT ON HIS BEHAVIOUR, HE COULD HAVE AVERTED THE COMMISSION OF THE CRIME. IT IS APPARENT THAT PEOPLE IN MUMBAI ARE UNDER TREMENDOUS STRESS BROUGHT ABOUT BY DEMANDING DEADLINES AND FIERCE COMPETITION BEING FED BY THE CONCEPT OF " THE WINNER TAKES ALL "WHICH ALL TOO OFTEN LEADS TO THE EROSION OF VALUES, WHEREBY CLICHED VIRTUES OF PATIENCE, CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS, NONVIOLENCE, COURTESY AND THE LIKE ARE COMPROMISED WITH. THE NEED OF THE HOUR THEREFORE, IS FOR THE PEOPLE OF MUMBAI TO LEARN TO SLOW DOWN A BIT, PARTICIPATE IN SOME STRESS REDUCING ACTIVITIES, TURN A LITTLE REFLECTIVE AND DEVELOP SOME PATIENCE AS THEY GO ABOUT THEIR DAILY ACTIVITIES. THIS WILL DEFINITELY HELP TO BRING DOWN THE INSTANCESA OF CRIME BEING COMMITTED, MAKING MUMBAI THE EL DORADO THAT SO MANY STARSTRUCK IMMIGRANTS IMAGINE IT TO BE.
