Foreword: ‘Cow and Calf’ had been Congress party’s symbol before the open Palm symbol. This blog thinks that more than ever it in the current situation that the above pic – as new symbol - is truly and most accurately representative of Congress. Last time it was Indira and Sanjay, now it is Balidaan Moorti Ma and Crowned Prince.
Now I am not going to dissect the election results for two reasons. One: it is for the political parties especially the opposition to ponder TWO: elections are over and it is the moment of truth and truth is: opposition failed miserably.
Well, in a democratic setup –how so ever flawed it may be- ‘Statistics’ matters and ‘statistics’ are clearly in favor of ‘Cow and Calf’. Period.
No arguments, no discussions, no debates, no grudges. ‘Calf and Cow’ are here and they are here to stay it is the ultimate truth. It is the emergence of ‘Naveen Cow and Calf’ Congress party. Bear it or F*** off.
“Naveen” in Hindi means ‘New’ so I call it ‘Naveen’ Congress.
BTW, this Naveen too has been pretty lucky for the ‘Cow and Calf’ ever since he was appointed CEC despite strong protest by almost entire opposition parties … Am I suggesting some thing? Uummmmmmhhhh…what you think?
If at all we had any hope of seeing any alternative formation challenging the ‘Cow and Calf’ led ‘Syndicate’ (including Media, NGOs, CBI, and Intellectual Masturbate-rs of several hues) in the form of BJP! Then we were grossly wrong.
BJP these days has only one opposition to fight against and that is: BJP alone; no body else. They are busy among themselves and if – and BIG ‘IF’- at all they sort their issues they might think of some real issues concerning people too, yes they might, just. So far with leader like Party President Rajnath at the helm of affairs- it seems impossible.
May be it is time for like minded bloggers to revise their support for BJP and find a political party which endorses the ‘Right and Righteous Path of Governance’ and challenge the ‘syndicate’ of ‘Cow and Calf’ admirers. Till then, we (vigilant bloggers though the Media Queen Ms. Barkha Dutt Hates us so much) should take command in our own hands and keep a strict vigil on the ‘syndicate’ and keep exposing them for what they are: pack of mere time servers, sycophants, swindlers, looters.
NOW, more than the victory of ‘Cow and Calf’ – which is only ‘Statistical win’- it is the sorry state of BJP in particular and any ‘ideological opposition’ in general which the real cause of worry is.
Ominous signs for what future we, as a Nation are heading for!
The President: Normally some one who inspires.
But we are not living in normal times Sigh! Here is ‘You’re President’.
But all the above is for ‘Normal’ times yeah! We have ‘Dr. Economist Mr. Clean’ Prime Minister Minion! All other qualities or qualifications apart he is PM for only because he is the least threatening to the Holy ‘Cow and her Calf’.
Council of Ministers: Collective responsibility and collective wisdom was what the constitution framers had in mind for ‘Normal’ system of Governance.
Above is expected, but for ‘Normal’ time, which sure we are not living in. “Collective Loot”, “Individual Sycophancy to ‘Holy Cow and Calf’” and “Self Promotion” is the buzz now.
Effective and strong “Opposition” to keep a check on the Ruling party and its policies is as important as Governance in any democracy, but then that too is for ‘Normal’ times. Isn’t it?
But then, on this front too all we see is: petty local ‘regional chieftains’ whose vision does not go beyond their nose and whose only purpose is to demand their share of loot. Only two ‘Ideological’ formations like BJP and Communists who ‘claim’ to have an ‘alternate’ system of governance are in disarray and there are no visible signs of their timely and effective recovery, they might go further down the pit they find selves in. Certainly not these are ‘normal’ times!
Unless we now choose to redefine: what ‘normal times’ are.
In a vibrant and health democracy MEDIA is expected to be a watch dog, again only in ‘Normal times’ it is expected that MSM uncovers truth, dig out scams, educate people and bring issues to fore. Normal times Huh!
With MSM now part of ‘Conspiracy’ and fully in service of ‘Holy Cow and Calf’ only because – according to ‘Media Sultan Rajdeep’ Journalist Mange More – they have to keep running their ‘Shops’ euphemistically called “Media Houses”, they are now days indistinguishable from the charlatans of ‘Cow and Calf’ brigade.
Judiciary is the last refuge of a ‘wronged’ person to solicit justice. Normally and rightly it is expected from the courts to deliver justice- on time and in full. But in, ‘Normal Times’, You See!
Now I am not commenting on respected Judiciary any which way. I am ‘mortally’ scared of Judiciary which at times has shown to be ever on very short fuse- but a Certain ‘Verbal Terrorist’ does get away with lambasting the SC after NBA verdict. I am too humble a Blogger to invite Judiciary’s “attention” any which way. But then CJI’s reluctance here did not inspire confidence in many at least, isn’t it?
Now let us see where ‘We the People’ of “Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic Republic of India” – a thousands of years old Civilization with ONE BILLION people – stand. Normally it is our collective duty to elect true representative of ours and held him/her accountable and change when he/she does not perform. Normal Expectation of Course!
But then, voting day is a day to relax with kids and friends. If voting day extends your weekend then WOW! Decide which country side or near by vacation spot family choose to go to, then take out your car and drive off. If at all you choose to go to vote: then consider who is from your cast, or choose because he/she sent you cheap liquor ‘quarter’, or did he deliver 500/= Rs. Note on time, or choose because of any other sundry consideration BUT CERTAINLY NOT for his/her commitment towards people, certainly not for his/her achievements, certainly not for his/her programmes, certainly not for what his/her vision is.
Do we still have a right to crib? Do we still have any reason to complain?
Certainly Not. We deserve the Government we elect.
High time Voting is made Constitutionally Compulsory Duty of Every Citizen.
Now for sure I am convinced that we are living in Ram Rajyaa.
How, you ask? Well let me explain: with all the above what you have read i.e.: No body is doing the job he/she supposed to do, yet we are, do you not wonder we still are One Nation and alive!!!!
Every thing is Ram Bhrose. Only God knows how a Billion strong Nation still exists, otherwise successive governments (Mostly ‘Cow and Calf’ syndicate for the longest period ever since Independence) left no stone unturned to wipe it off from the Globe – at least as one strong coherent political Nation.
God Bless My Country. God Bless Bharat! Amen!
