THE SMOKE- FILLED ROOM- YOU ENTER AND IT BEGINS…
This Article was shortlisted as the top entries at Educoncours 1st National Journalism Competition
Earlier hooligans used to play a game with the dice- Drawing lots on the ships for the survival, no corn to consume, hunger surges, thirst upsurges, but a fear was there in the highbrows which is the cause of this fatal and viperous game. Death of one for the survival of the others was the deadly game, where one lost not only battle, not only defeat but also suffered a breakneck. This is directly proportionate to the game of politics- “do or die” where evil is so far stretched that once you enter there will be an ocean of hell where you have to burn. Burn either in jealousy, fear, shame, for respect, or for money. From our eyes whichever party wins it’s a loose loose situation. Whoever scores a six and suffers defeat, the sabotage will be caused, the ship will be wrecked devoid of all the passengers and clients one day, and will cross the ocean without any motive or expectations.
Politics can be linked to a filthy game where people are used as objects for their needs and to gain opportunities by twitching others leg, by arm twisting. If you want to play and want to win you should play with the heart of a king and not with the heart of a rabbit; try to prove yourself not by jeering other party leaders but by proving yourself, not by boasting or brandishing about your logo and deeds. Just like the legend that is alive between us and is representing our country from small town of Israel for research to a massive land of U.S for Climate Change. He is a man who is playing open on the field with his head high and shoulders upright. Be the man who doesn’t get offended what the other parties are stinking upon, what unnecessary charges are being summoned upon, that being headlights but he keeps the ball rolling and is trying to use each second of these Five years “Acche Din”. Every party is working hard to bring Modiji down with various scams and Modiji is busy planning ‘Swach Bharat Abhiyaan”, GST Bill, his expedient manoeuvring of Demonetisation, a different ideology of Make In India than Make of India, where India will no more be a market where traders and middle men enter the Indian Market, make goods and sell them and they receive the money, the market will be reshaped and regenerated for our employers and they will use their artistry and dexterity in their own soil allowing employment and vocation. How weird of Modiji, he is involving himself into such hard work, travelling, sleeping for 4 hours and the other party pointing out big scams, his age certificates, questioning his wife, evidences of her debut. Such a clemency situation of this Indian politics. AAP and Congress are busy arguing, manifesting their limited authority in scandalising This Man, instead would have worked as a team and mixed their energy as a Tri-colour. India needs a linear array which can outpour new ideas, gush the current for the flow of mind together and not as an individual. That time also we needed Unity, today also we need Unity and one more thing which is lacking – Honesty.
Today before the word Politics we use “dirty”, it’s sad to see that earlier Politics was seen as a power in the hand who is representing that country with a rationale mind to uplift the nation, to see the agricultural land prospering, using the money of the citizen in an ethical modus, but now the nation is saturated with high superficial goals that the concept of NOTA has gained an underpinning. It has languished its trust and certitude from the eyes of the farmer, from the ecstasy of the woman but has enhanced the gross and horrid brute force of the rapist and murderers on every road, transport, on air, in nautical miles, water.
Terminating Smriti Irani from the post of Education Minister on the basis that she has not enough qualification, even rendering good speeches and high command over English didn’t make her capable enough and the concern became her certificates which made her discontinue her office. Instead, the focus should have been on her capability than her certificates.
I am not supporting or snuffing out any party. Just my opinion as I personally strive “United we stand, divided we fall.” Simply putting when we live in a family together our energy is triple x and when we reduce in size either splitting or for any other monetary reason our energy reduces to simply x. This simple formula is applied in every scenario be it Home or Nation. Politics has a supreme power to water the garden and vegetate flowers or a land meant for bombardment and making it a land with white sheets, not of snow.
I am not proposing that the GST is not causing problems, it’s still an untouched stone though passed but it’s relevance to the people has not gained a clear majority. I am not saying that the manoeuvring Demonetisation did not had a dingy impact but a sudden movement like this tried to remove the black market and end red tapism. It was a harsh step but for a change some tempering needs to be done, this was that hook.
Politics can be used as a card of Ace or can be used as a card of Jack. Politics is the thrust on which our Indian society depends and relies blindly; it can be assessed through the histogram of 2017 which shows that 76% of Indians rely on Government which is the highest across the world. Hence, it’s not only the duty of the government to look after the well being of the citizens but also their responsibility to manifest that trust in their eyes.
We have gone so inferior that for politics we are tracing Ram Mandir, Triple- Talaq, lynching and what not. Politicians and middleman have left no place of lacuna for these sensitive issues also. We have given these issues also a political colour. We hear that India is said to be a country where democracy is given a high standing. Yes, it should be but always negating to what the present party is saying and taking it other way round will lead us no where. Eg:- Triple Talaq was a golden calf issue which was given a different opine by BJP so that muslim woman don’t suffer at the cause of mere pronouncing three times Talaq by their men but it was given a crafty look by other parties to gain a vote of sympathy by BJP. When no heed was given to this contention earlier, now it became a matter of controversy.
These may be small issues for you people but it shows out mentality, our ethos and ideology which entangle our thoughts, cramp one’s style and handicap our Indian system making us loose trust in the eyes of the Government. For taking India to a pinnacle not only in respect of being 2nd largest population but also being a welfare state with zero crime rate, a highly developed country with superior cultural values unblemished.
