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.
THE HINDU have been a regular part of my life for almost 11 years .i still remember the first copy that my dad brought for me at shornur bus stand , at the time when the afghan invasion was at its peak. the news paper have made me open up to a new world outside the chauvinistic malayali universe of manorama , the editorials are the masterpiece and my vocabulary on the blog is mostly thanks to its articulate use of words. the impartial take on most issues have always been its forte , even ready to take on the king of frauds – sharad pawar . the things i always resented were the leftist and tamil propaganda it dishes out. the sheer weightage it gives to the ramblings of the CPM , MDMK and CPI , which are all but minor players at the national level at the expense of the more popular parties is a dichotomy to its egalitarian stand. this leftist stance was all but visible in the articles it published on the anniversary of the 1962 war , they were pro chinese to the extent that some of them solely blamed nehru for its outbreak . the pro tamil agenda and the open opposition of srilankan president mahinda rajapakshe and his efforts to reunite the war torn country is unwarranted , even though the final days of military action were unjust from a civilian point of view.
the left leaning publications of the group have never really gotten over the fact that the red bloc have fallen decades ago and the largest communist state is more capitalist than ours . the nostalgic tone with which it pays tribute to the soviet era is all but evident from the fervent with which it bashes the “imperialistic” united states . the Beijing bureau headed by the scion of the group irritates you the most with the chinese national anthem he renders on a daily basis , yes china is the future , we all must recognize that bitter fact , but it must not be over our national interests. if you glance the articles it becomes very clear that communism is the only way out of the bourgeois parties that rule us , this outright patronization in the form of leftist tilt is and will remain the only black mark on the earnest initiative that is “THE HINDU”. the group must realize that being impartial doesn’t mean it has to be anti establishment , a more just society within the folds of what we have is what we , the people want.
just a day after the naxals killed 80 CRPF jawans we saw one of those instances of rare unity between the ruling party and the opposition . there were media “speculations ” about the home minister quitting his post, taking moral responsibility for the incident , to this bjp came up with a statement that the H.M must not resign as it would be a moral victory for the perpetrators of this heinous violence . this was quiet a shocking statement from a party whose leaders wanted shiv raj patel out right the next second after the Mumbai attacks. why did the opposition react that way?.lets find out the answer.
the various entities that form india is more diverse than the E.U which cannot even stand eye to eye in rescuing Greece . the common thread connecting these thousands of small entities is the de facto religion of hinduism and many of its cultural extensions . we hindus may call ourselves secular but beneath this thin membrane of pseudo secularism is the anxiety about our existence . the fear of going back to servitude and falling back to the nearly thousand years of foreign rule . this fear of extermination which brought us together is still keeping us united.
in this respect india is more like isreal , but not as aggressive in defending its identity . since we are nearly a billion hindus vs a few million jews we could be complacent , but the indian government still tries to defend its identity . it knows how to keep this billion under control , so it utilizes tragedies like the above mentioned ones to keep this fear of unity alive . they not only make us fear the minorities(external forces) but make us assert our power on minorities like the many riots till gujrat to make us feel how much safe we are under them. through not punishing the guilty they give us assurance that we will never have to face any forced conversions or loose our gods under their guardianship. we all complain of hindu chauvinism but it is not bjp or rss that is keeping it alive but the ruling class that always reminds us of our imminent peril whether in the hands of pakistan or the godless chinese.
the Mumbai attacks could be taken as the best example – we had islamic terrorists bringing india’s business capital to a standstill (the best case scenario) this tragedy was taken up as an opportunity by the pseudo secular forces and their allies in the media to derail the ongoing india – pakistan peace talks . the normalisation of relations would mean enemy no 1 would be enemy no more . though pakistan is a major nuclear power ,the constant comparison and the fear in the indian psyche is just exaggerated . what can a country the size of uttar pradesh do, other than the proxy war it does , a direct confrontation means the complete annihilation of our smaller neighbor . we may also face casualties but will still survive . this is the worst case, will the international community allow such a confrontation in the first place?. so the threat posed by pakistan is more on paper than in reality , whose existence is essential for our existence .
the naxalism is another of the “threats” facing us , the ruling class will never take action to suppress them nor will they stop making fables about their ability to overthrow the indian union .here the anxiety is not about getting converted but loosing gods en mass . more over the socialist ideology is projected as the threat to the free economic system that shows 8% growth figures , the liberal media funded by these vested forces will never try to see the other 75% of india who suffers . so we will have arnab goswami questioning the patriotism of socialist thinkers and never questioning why naxalism is spreading through the jungles at this pace. it is a fact that naxals could never overthrow the indian union , but the capitalist lobby is taking extra mileage of this situation , they care less about the poor whether it be the widows of the dead soldiers or it be tribals caught in the cross fire.
these forces would take undue benefit of our fear if we never believe in the stability and longevity of this great conglomerate . so lets all try to make sense of reality than get guided by fear.
