Bihar elections-new begginings???

The bihar election results are a continuation of a very encouraging trend..the choice of a progressive result oriented governance over caste-identities as well as dynastic monarchic extravagance might signal an intelligence shift of perception of the indian voter..
A subtle viel of pseudo-enterprisement has been created aided by the Western media about the Rahul Gandhi brand of nationalism ..morals and political sensitivities have been deliberately mis-interpreted as staying overnight in Dalit's homes and claiming ownership over the money which has gone for the development of decades-neglected Bihar..Age old tactics of a silent ever-shilded monarchial leader whose ladyship has sacrificed her life for the country and a cacophony of wily Congressmen protecting the Madam's aura is reminiscent of the Nehruvian-Indira neo-political socialism which,under the viel of a central social just governance has managed to ruthlessly keep india's millions starving and uneducated..
People like Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar are anti-dotes to that..the new mantra is empowerment ,not aids and grants..we need more of them and more of this intelligenct voting to keep this scourge of dynastic poitics at bay..
May this election results herald a second wave of nationalism and progressive political developments in our this scam and sham-riddled India,its only mature political choices that can overthrow powers that have begun to rot under the heavy burden of years of rule..

Media and the CWG

The recent uproar over corruption issues and organizational failures of the Commonwealth Games, Delhi brings out the self-denigrating mindset of Indians who seem to take a certain pride in looking down on themselves in a social arena.It is true that there has been financial irregularities[as there always has been here] as well as poor planning execution at the very highest level.It also cannot be denied that we needed more proffesionalism and stringence in conduction the preparations for such a mega event.
But the shrieking of the media [both print and visual] and its screaming headlines and breaking news over the matter raises several questions..
Firstly, the CWG is an issue of national pride.whether we belong to the govt. or the planning commitees , the public or the media,,we are Indians it not our responsibility to ensure that out image is not tarnished in the eyes of the world or is it so important to keep throwing shoes at each others while the world makes a mockery of us.
Secondly, keepng in mind the magnitude of the event ..would it not have been more prudent to postpone the blame game and brickbat throwing after the Games..that would have ensured more efficinet functioning and less hassles to the curent team working over time to get the house in order..
Thirdly has the media fulfilled its role in projecting the heriocs of our particiapants who have braved so many odds of lack of infrastructural support to reach world standards..have they; while shouting hoarse over doping issues taken even one step to salute those who represent our country and have positively excelled in recent international events like never before in history .our standards in badminton,snooker,atheletics,tennis and swimming are at an unprecedented longer do we come back lagging at the bottom of medal charts in most global stages..
Fourthly..why precisely do we posess this self blame culture.In the US you will never find this mindless media-shrieking at their own faults..instead there will be a upright pride in all sectors of the society as a common consciousness for an event with a little space for constructive criticism.
I think its time we imbibbe the spirit of nationalism in our country..shedding this mindset which is the legacy of the British..thats how they left us..thats how they wanted us to be..wake up guys..lets say cheers to a successful CWG and give our country a chance..

UPA government:a story of mass hoax

Never before have we witnessed such a collective apathy and skewed vision of the political circus that is going on ever since the UPA government came to power in 2004.A less-than-careful analysis of the election planks;the basis of which the current government was elected would reveal an abmysal failure in almost all respects to such an extent that it has today pushed our nation to the brink of an economic and security crisis.
A rabble of hoax by a dreadfully biased media which is hell bent on keeping the right wing forces out of power, has managed to keep the public blindfolded in its judgements and knowledge.whetherit be the spiralling food prices and inflation;a total failure to handle the internal security situation,a pathetic indescisivemeness in relation to our policies towards the Maoists menace,a ridiculous handling of our external affairs policies and an unrecendented rot in corruption in the govt. machinery,an expression of which has echoed in the CW games-the UPA govt, has been performing at a level which can at best be judged as alarmingly inefficient.
Comparitively when we evaluate the performance of the previous NDA govt viv a vis this one..its a ceaseless wonder how the people of our country cannot see such a glaring difference .
I personally feel this inability of judgement of the collective billion is a scar on the very process of democracy we champion..i feel its time we take a fresh look at our democratic system which can be tweeked and twisted in any manner by castiest and secularistic agendas to blindfold our people to the failings of our present leaders..

the anti cow slaughter bill

the BJP led Govt. of karnataka passed the much debated anti-cow slaughter bill, amidst the hullaboo and ruckus of the opposition as the House was already embroidled with the raging iron mining controversery.the media has lost no oppurtunity in continuing its pseudo-secularistic propaganda[which increasingly seems to be a second voice of the central government]..
The articles and views written in opposition of the Bill ranged from the quirky to the ridiculous.arguments ranging from the impending doom of all those associated with the beef industry to the plight of animals at the Bannerghatta national park who needs a specialized diet of beef only and of course the secularism-coated concept of a conspiracy to change the diet patterns of the minority...
i wish the media was more responsible in voicing its overt concerns about the bill..they could have at least considered a debate or a counter view point..which should ideally be the case for any controversial issue..instead they choose to raise the issue in blatantly biased light.
