In a nation that has 1.25 billion people, one political party is unable to find a leader outside a certain gene pool…. they have tall leaders, literally and metaphorically, they have enough money to bring in anyone who they think can be a good leader, but they still clamour to elect a “dodo” as their leader, just because he belongs to a certain gene pool and has adopted a famous last name.
Its pathetically funny to watch his re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re……re-launches. He has to find a place in the Guinness book of world records for the number of re-launches he has had !! He is never ready to take on the mantle that is being forcibly thrust upon him. And there is a tiny (thank heavens !!) group of grovelling sycophants who want him as their leader.
Just see our nation’s history since 1947. The good times have all come when someone outside this single gene pool has become the leader – if today our current PM is taking us places, its because a certain grumpy, non-smiling P V Narasimha Rao got a brilliant and silent ManMohan Singh to open the markets. Goodbye license raj. Ah, just that one master stroke brought so much change… if someone from the same gene pool had succeeded Rajiv Gandhi, chances are we would still be driving around in Ambassadors and pollution would have been lesser. Yippeeee.
What makes this gene pool so attractive to certain cretins ? Its probably the convenient arrangement of mutually beneficial corruption. Still … how can some “human beings” be spineless.
