Congratulations Dr. Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
India has never seen a technical prime minister. Dr. Singh in that way has been greatly refreshing in our political and economic scenario, though I am not a fan of his economic policies, which I think are blind to India’s long term needs.
For the first time in Indian history, India saw a selfless non-political prime minister and people have lapped it up. Great! Million thanks to Sonia for it.
Congratulations to Sonia Gandhi too for her strategic planning though I think leaving Quatrochi off the net is a wrong and selfish move.
And Congratulations to Rahul, who put his faith on people than paunchy politicians and fought it alone in Uttar Pradesh. He has shown to all young aspiring leaders how to succeed. Rahul, I accept grudgingly that you are an inspirational example.
India’s political space is undergoing a churn. It is good. But it cannot be left to the mercy of dynastic politics alone.
India needs a Centrist, Left/Left-of-Centric, Right/Right-of-Centric coalitions that are strong and powerful that India does not become dogmatic.
It is going to be several decades before we lift the yoke of poverty from our people. We need strong political parties from all sides of the economic spectrum to fight for the rights of people. We need strong Leftist movements that put people’s welfare above everything else. We need strong capitalist
movements that put economic growth above the immediate needs of people. We need strong centrist movements that balance both and are opportunistic for time.
It is only in this push and pull that we can serve to continously course-correct and achieve our long term dreams.
The oldies of the Left movement have to learn from Rahul, how to build a strong left movement, which is very much in need in India. Rahul has showed how people’s power is the basis of any movement and not opportunistic alliances. A strong Left movement is very much needed for our country and people’s equitable growth.
The oldies of the Right movement have to learn how Varun Gandhi’s are not going to lead them anywhere. Narendra Modi has stuck not because of his communal outlook, but because he has delivered something to Gujarat. Hence communalising the political space will not help. And Narendra Modi has to learn to shed his image if he has to become the next generation leader of BJP. A strong BJP is vital for our country, its culture and its long term sustenance and vitality.
Yes. The job is difficult for non-congress parties, as they are non-dynastic. But then there is no other way. India needs them very much. India cannot be left to whims and fancies of just the Congress party. Today Congress party is the only party with younger generation leaders. Other parties also need to bring their next generation up and it is vital for India.
In fact the results of Indian Elections 2009 is a Call to the youth of India. It is time for youth to define their political ideological space and get themself united in the political process on the right, left and the center and take it over from the elders.
Congress is a good centrist option. But we need future leaders in Left and Right equally, if we need to progress. Hence more youth need to come forward to join these parties too.
Some of the established celebrities, Intelligentisa and personalities in India have an anethema to BJP in the name of secularism and anathema to Left in the name of Capitalism.
Such an approach does not bode good for our country in the long term. Youth of this country should shun such leaders. They should be open to all the ideologies and ideas, with only goal being the development of our country and people. They need to join parties of all political spectrum and develop India’s future.
Yes! Together we Can!
And in the meanwhile, Great Showing Dr.Singh, Sonia and Rahul. This country has reposed the faith in you. And I am sure you will take care of them.
