“Congress or BJP, Rahul Gandhi or Narendra Modi, who will be able to translate their popularity into votes in the upcoming election? Besides, who actually deserves to be at the driver’s seat of the nation? The media is going blah blah blah over it. But the question still remains unanswered – Will our country progress under the guidance of a young leader like Rahul or shine if Modi proves “yamraj” to Congress?”
These were the last few sentences of my boss when we finished our meeting yesterday and while I was busy fiddling with my phone all the time throughout the meeting, the conclusion of the meeting blew me away completely. No, my boss did not answer the questions asked above but gave me the duty to analyze the situation and opinionate it. “Dammit!” was my first reaction after all Politics is not my genre in writing.
“Sir, according to me someone should tell Rahul that he is not a philosopher and India doesn’t need him. On the other hand, India doesn’t even need a “self marketing man” like Narendra Modi” I chucked as I said that.
“Oh Deepti, I do not want you to speak but write a thorough article on the topic. Meet me tomorrow with the article in the first half” He snapped at me.
I reached at my home all gloomy and miserable. My mom started ranting about her daily woes. I interrupted her by asking what she felt about Congress or BJP, she had just one answer – Congress. My phone beeped it was a notification of WeChat. My boyfriend had messaged me. I asked him the same question but he replied, BJP and Narendra Modi. It was 1-1 and the answer came from the two most important persons of my lives whom I always run for advices. Ask me about beauty, fashion and lifestyle, I can write pages and pages, but inquire me about Politics, I am equivalent to a ‘layman.’ My boyfriend calmed me a bit and gave me a lot of information (Congress Policies, History, Indian Politics etc) while we were chatting on WeChat. He is a bureaucrat with a Ph.d in International Politics. An avid follower and fan of history, he started telling me how the Indian leaders would react to this mess. I listened to him mentioning Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Subash Chandra Bose, Rabindra Nath Tagore, Muhammad Ali Jinnah but could not concentrate and gradually while talking to him on WeChat, I went into my slumber assuming that these veteran leaders of contradicting views would come to my help, debate and give me their insights for my post.
I tell you child, you should go for the Congress and even vote for the Congress which brought Independence under our Great Leader Gandhiji.
I think you should help the child here rather than arguing about your personal agendas.
I will say its better if you consider BJP and even vote for them. Mr. Modi is a real leader.
Yes, Nehru for a change is saying something that is making sense after a long time..Modi is a monster, a communal person. It is only because of a man like Modi, we had to make our land of pure, “Pakistan.”
Every Indian is like Modi that is why the minorities are dying in India where as minorities along with the majorities are flourishing in Pakistan
Whhhhhat? Part of the same country, UNACCEPTABLE! Does it mean that India sees Pakistan as its own part?
Leave it Jinnah, I am wrong
Don’t laugh Bose…You should stop supporting the fascist Modi..Ahh, whom am I lecturing..U were too under the fascist fold, taking Hitler’s side and Tojo’s help in the Independence of our Sacred Motherland
How dare you call him that
Meanwhile, with the help of the WeChat “Shake” feature, I found that Tagore Sir was in a mere distance of 1km. I quickly greeted him and welcomed in the group.
I see..So, Deepti, are you in politics? Is that why you are so interested in this mess?
Poems and Short stories, wow, that’s the way to go, young Grasshopper 🙂 But, what is a blog?
Sir, it’s an online platform where you can write about your opinion, view and majorly, go gaga about what you like and dislike…
That’s a gift from me, beta..
(Again Bose and Nehru starts arguing)
Bose: U really call them development? The Economy has almost stopped growing…The industrial output has dropped to 2%. Look at Gujarat, it is far ahead than the rest of India..I tell you, this Modi guy is the right man or at least the best man among the current leaders who can lead India..All these Congress schemes have become new breeding grounds for corruption.
If you ask me I think Aam Aadmi Party is the better than most of the parties. In fact, they are nearest to my Gandhi Policy of Decentralisation and more power into the hands of the people. The best Government is the government which governs the least.
Even I agree to that. My own party Forward Bloc has lost its way..Now every party is involved in some sort of corruption. The efficiency which is needed and which I myself fought so hard to maintain in Congress during my President ship and in the INA has disapperead altogether from the Indian Political scene. Not a single party is perfect. Though to me, BJP is the best of the not so good parties in India.
Just like my mom 🙂
Go for it Gurudev!
P.S. When I woke up, I checked my WeChat only to find out all the analysis was sent from my boyfriend’s number on WeChat along with images and videos by his colleagues to support the article. Yes, my WeChat group of intellectuals 😉 helped me complete my work towards promotion as Wechat not only allows you to send text, pictures and videos but also voice messages. Besides, you can add huge number of people in a group. Whoa, WeChat – What an incredible novel way to connect!
