I don’t believe in Social Service. I don’t see any reason why I should believe it. Social Service means I have to serve the poor/ill/old people by providing physical or monitory support. But, what is the whole use of that?
The underprivileged remains just there. I dont think their status is lifted up. I even doubt if all the service being done actually reaches them! Rich people just throw away some money in the name of donation just for the sake of maintaining their status / decreasing their income tax / worse is for the sake of some astrology reasons! And I have also seen people who go to such homes and do service just to feel good about themselves.
I feel good about myself without doing all these. I don’t need to go to such homes to feel good about myself / my status. I don’t need recognition from someone else that I am kind hearted. I know it and I don’t need someone to certify me.
The basic question is how many of these people doing social service do it actually with the mind of serving the needy? How many such services actually reaches the needy in the way they want it? Above all, even if it actually reaches the poor and needy, again I wonder what is the use? Can it uplift a whole society of needy? Can that happen by serving them? Can the whole community of poor/needy/ill/etc/etc can be uplifted by social services?
I think doing such social services are not helpful in anyway as they claim. This encourages the poor to remain poor and the rich to go richer. It is not going to eradicate poor. It is not going to eradicate the needy. It is going to just persist the state of ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’. If change has to be done, it has to be done at the basic root cause level. Acting on symptoms is not going to cure the disease or give permanent relief. So, both who work on symptons and those who get satisfied with that kind of service – both have to be blamed!
The ideal state would be where there is no need for such Social Service organizations at all.
