yesterday cnn ibn – the hindu exit pole predicted a hung parliament in 2014 . though bjp is expected to emerge the largest party , the chances of it making the government is slim. which will automatically give congress another chance at the centre which will be a catastophe. hence it is important that mr modi must win and here are some of the reasons why –
1. congress is too arrogant and it thinks it to be their birthright to rule this nation
2.the so called youth power in congress is nothing but a bunch of elite parachuted from the top. rahul gandhi will no doubt be the next rajiv gandhi – clueless at the top.
3.the hereditary factor – rahul will virtually turn india into the longest running monarchy in asia.
4 . for the clean image of mr modi as far as corruption goes . one more cabinet with these faces ……. never
5. mr modi is a self made man. he could be a role model for many with no family connections.
6. he is neither a brahmin nor a kshatriya which is a big relief , as this country had just a handfull of leaders from other casts.
7 its better to have on your face communalism than the shadow one that we have , with fake encounters and counter fake encounters.
as you all must have noted my main reason for supporting him is him being anti congress and anti gandhi clan. though he have a whole lot of other darker aspects to him , i think he is a better option mr rahul gandhi.
this is a story about a movement which neither the right , left or centre wants to talk about. founded in 1930s by a group of well informed gentlemen as an alternative to the congress and the communist party , congress socialist party was grand in its vision . it wanted to fuse the socialist ideas with the “bharat ki mitti” and that too not in a marxist way. they were never against the indian set up , but opposed its evils , nor were they anti religion. its leaders dreamed of an india were inequalities perished and everyone lived a fruitful life.
quit india movement was when most of its leaders like jayaprakash narayan and ram manohar lohia came to the national forefront. they quickly made inroads among the masses and were quiet literally challenging the congress high command. gandhi being the authoritarian that he was did the same thing with the socialist camp what he had done to subhash chandra bose. that is he boycotted it. with time the movement lost its steam and by 1950s died a slow death. though jp rose back to prominance in the 70s for another reason , this time his ideology taking a back seat over his personal vendetta. if his second innings was more about his ideology than ambitions the janatha party regime could have ushered in a new india..
nehru’s experiment of what came to be india , is much debated these days , especially for the huge bureaucracy and the associated corruption it has given rise to ,with some of those commentators terming it a total failure . as another independence day approaches , it is time for a bit of introspection of what we as have become.
at the time of independence there were two antagonistic views of how india must move forward. the gandhian and nehruvian path.the first to me , a third generation free indian is a bit insane. gandhi was in favor of grama swaraj , an utopia were villages were self sufficient and the nation was nothing but a federation of these villages. in a world were nationalism is worn on sleeves such a federation would have broken up years ago , with a weak center we didn’t even stood a chance . that is were nehrus india out shined . though much of the government of india act of 1935 was blindly copied , it did give us a sense of unity , particularly in those formative years. today it has become the backbone of modern india .
as the fizzling out of the arab spring showed us changes should always be assimilated with time , hence nehru’s decision to adopt the colonial system was the best decision made at the time . he planned to slowly adapt it to the indian climate. but his grand visions for a better india was destroyed by none other than his own daughter. being the politician she is , she adapted the system for her benefit imprinting into the indian psyche the bureaucracy that we have. if we look back it is more than clear that since 1970s no real change have taken place as far as our system goes and the later governments following indiras path nehruvianism was abandoned.
it is indira who should be blamed for what we have today and not nehru rather he must be admired for his work of uniting us into a country that is slowly emerging on the world stage.
