The Tonic which India Requires..

Has the time come for the politicians to prove their loyalty to the country? Will they have the will power to cross party lines and stand up for the nation? If yes let us rewrite history.
The 3 point agenda more powerful than an economic stimulus other countries are providing, this would be a propeller which would enable India to rapidly change gears. 

1. Forgo Elections 2009. 
2. Let the country’ s democracy take a break for five years. Let the best leaders and bureaucrats take over and lead a pseudo democratic country for five years. The leaders presently are tired loyalists and not qualified administrators but wise foxes of the political system . This may sound like socialism but we have to swallow a bitter pill. Its time we rewrite history with a new governance model “SOCIO-DEMOCRACY”.

3. We have to take all the actions which we have not taken since the independence. Our leaders have been chalking political strategies rather than governmental strategies. We require a consensus not an open opposition to any form of progress.  Leave the Orange and Red colors and take the country’s colors on top. We united to fight the British to raise a common color and we now are tearing it again into pieces. We have an open palm which looks like a stop signal. We have to tilt it to allow the country to progress else they would sink along with people on the lotus.
We have wasted enough time looking left and right rather than ahead. If the politicians have a heart and represent the people we want a report card. Its time democracy takes a sabbatical since its lost meaning in India its more like “DEMO” of  the “CRAZY”. 

The country has been voting either way from the time of independence hoping for the best. But have been let down time and again. If we progress towards election 2009 the country is going to be split and the politicians have to waste our energies in pleasing each other rather than the common man.

We are now at the brink of a make or break situation. There are multiple situations which have to be dealt simultaneously with equal finesse. We can no more depend on other nations since they are dealing with problems of their own. If we don’t clean our backyard we are going to succumb to a fatal illness and go spiraling down an abyss.

We have poverty, the economic meltdown and security. All have to be dealt with equal seriousness and speed. The next 6 months are crucial. If we squander it away in political strategies we are going to repent for lost time. 

If their answer is no, India will move towards an accelerated  death.


The extremist groups are openly mocking our law and order system as we just look on. Its time we address the issue from a different perspective. Trying to catch the people who have taken lives and emotions of people for granted is a small step in curbing the menace. 

My sympathy lies entirely with the country's police force who are trying to probe in the dark to find the source of darkness. The people with whom they are dealing are mentally brainwashed and their life is now a mere  resource. We must deal not with the culprits but their masters. Access to their masters is a political/International issue. Hence we must protect our public from being brainwashed.

The communities both the Hindu and Muslim leaders (not the politically affiliated ones) must take the initiative in trying to spread harmony among their group and spread the value of life. Its only steps like these which can stop these attacks.

In addition the government must go ahead and sponsor inter communal documentaries to stop the spread of communal hatred which might stem out of this current situation.

Only steps like this can ensure a safe country.
