Political Ponderings

Kal CON-Aaj CON-Kal CON


Lets admit it – Indians are gullible, easily CONned and we love dynasties. We love the color white, in people, cars, food and brides and we love the color black in money. Its easy to fool us, even more so if you speak in English. We feel ashamed if we cannot speak the foreign language called English as though its our mother tongue !! That about sums it up, eh?

How else can we explain the faith we reposed in a party like the CONgress and its owners, the Nehru dynasty for nearly 65 years ??? Pandit Nehru for all his charm and good looks, was at best mediocre as the PM. He got that role courtesy the Mahatma pushing his case. There is enough evidence now that he was practically the last British ruler of India – he loved them, some more than the others but nevertheless loved them and wanted to ape everything that they did !! Then his daughter who he apparently never thought would become PM, became the PM and for all her charm, good looks and an outstanding collection of handloom saris, she gifted the Emergency besides letting loose her son Sanjay Gandhi, on the unsuspecting Mango men and women. Tragically, she lost that son and then she paid for the blunder of ordering the army to enter the Harminder Sahib with her life. The tragedy didn’t end there. Enter her son Rajiv Gandhi, the reluctant politician. He seemed like a decent man, but he chose to deal with the Sikh Massacre (3500+ Sikhs and counting) in Delhi after his mother’s death with the inane comment – “when a big tree falls, the ground shakes”. Then he too paid for his blunder of incompetently meddling in the Sri Lanka-LTTE face off with his life. Eight long years later, his Italian born wife took charge of the family CONcern CONgress and the rest as they say is history. Madam Sonia Gandhi ruled CONgress and the country since 1998 till the current PM atleast released the country from her grip. Pandit Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi – all were conferred the highest honour of the country, the Bharat Ratna. Maybe we should give one to Sonia Gandhi as well, for overseeing the final nail being driven into the coffin of CONgress by her son Rahul Gandhi.

Over the last few days there is an explosion of pictures from Amethi and that’s what made me write this piece :). Here are some telling pictures of the star constituency, the dynasty’s playground from where each one of them has been voted into power sometime or the other.

 

In contrast please see what has been done in Varanasi, by Mr. Modi in just four years –

And these are pictures taken by Krishnan and I, not some media personality or a BJP party worker.

Why couldn’t a Rahul Gandhi build good roads in Amethi? What stopped him when his mother was the de-facto PM even as Dr. MMS had the title? Even if everyone wants to believe the hallucinating CM of Delhi who feels Mr. Modi doesn’t let him work, what did Rahul Gandhi or the CONgress party do before 2014?

Lets admit it – Indians are gullible, easily CONned and we love dynasties. We love the color white, in people, cars, food and brides and we love the color black in money. Its easy to fool us, even more so if you speak in English. We feel ashamed if we cannot speak the foreign language called English as though its our mother tongue !! That about sums it up, eh?

Go ahead, vote for anyone other than Mr. Modi in 2019 with any part of your body except your head, and prove me right.
