Understanding The Aam Aadmi Party

Ok. So first of all let me clarify that this is not a piece where I want to give answers, but one where I want to ask questions. I don’t understand politics very much, but the current Lok Sabha Elections are very interesting. And it goes without saying that they are going to have a large effect on the country on a whole. From what I understand, Arvind Kejriwal and his party have done very well for themselves and has become a force to reckon with. They are a party that has been portrayed as a party with clean governance,

Decline of Ideology in Lok Sabha Polls!

The iconic Indian General Elections are here! We are about to exercise our franchise to elect the 16th Lok Sabha and a new government at the Centre! As usual, the run up to the polls has been noisy with accusations, attacks on rivals and posturing’s by Parties and leaders both to woo the voters and heap blames on the opponents! All Media platforms are heated to the maximum with the cacophony of electoral coverages, despite the attempt by the Election Commission to minimise the campaign period after elections are announced. But be that as may, a significant element of the

अरविंद को केजरीवाल जनता ने बनाया, मीडिया ने नही

एक कुत्ता गाड़ी के साथ-साथ चल रहा था। कुछ वक़्त के बाद उसे लगने लगा कि गाड़ी उसकी वजह से चल रही है। कुत्ते ने गाड़ी रोकने की सोची। कुत्ता तो रुक गया मगर गाड़ी चलती रही! ये कहावत बचपन में सुनी थी। यहाँ इसलिए लिख रहा हूँ कि कुछ लोगों को ये ग़लतफ़हमी हो गई है कि अरविंद केजरीवाल को मीडिया ने ही बनाया है (मैं ख़ुद मीडिया से ताल्लुक़ रखता हूँ, इसलिए ये ना समझा जाए कि मैं इस कहावत के ज़रिये गाली दे रहा हूँ। अगर फिर भी किसी को ठेस पहुँची तो अग्रिम माफ़ी)। ख़ैर अरविंद

Rahul Vs Arnab: Why Rahul Gandhi Should Never Be PM

Thank you Congress! I am really happy with the performances just done on Times Now by your VP Rahul Gandhi. It was like a Bollywood Masala Movie. I laughed, I smiled, I got emotional and angry! An awesome interview session Mr Arnab Goswami! Thanks a lot. You just cleared a misconception I was carrying from my childhood. The interview recalled in me a very old and popular story. A boy from a village, who spend most of his time in gossiping, was called for an oral examination in his school, as he was unable to pass the written exams. He

POLICE, Pocket Mein

As scenes of mass protest in Delhi were being aired on Television yesterday (January 21, 2014) one could easily mistake it for some college students demanding fulfilment of their agendas. However, on a closer look it becomes clear who is leading the charge there, the top man himself, the Chief Minister. Agenda – Control over Delhi police which reports directly to the Union Home Ministry presently. The incidents which sparked off this protest are Delhi Law Minister’s claim of a sex racket by Ugandan women which the police knowingly ignored and the mishandling of the sexual assault case on a

Aam Aadmi Party And its Gimmicks

Arvind Kejriwal became the chief minister of Delhi, ending the reign of Congress after 15 years. It was a welcome change in Indian politics when a new party, seemingly with great intentions, and a great marketing campaign and defeated Goliath. However, a few days into his I am fed up with his antics and gimmicks, which seem to be never ending. The following points are the ones that have been troubling me the most. 1.  What is the definition of Aam Aadmi? According to Arvind Kejriwal, Aam Aadmi is the person who goes to office everyday and works hard and

आप-बाप और सूपड़ा साफ़

एक आदमी सिस्टम से त्रस्त होकर लोकपाल के लिए जंतर-मंतर पर भूख-हड़ताल करता है…सरकार उसकी सुध नही लेती है….उल्टा कुछ गैर-जिम्मेदार कोंग्रेसी उन्हें राजनीति में आने को ललकारते हैं…..चुनौती स्वीकार कर आम आदमी “जंतर” से “जनता” में जाने का रास्ता चुनता है और 26 नवंबर, 2012 को “आम आदमी पार्टी” की स्थापना कर देता है……. अब इस आम आदमी का “बाप” इसे अपनी सम्पति से बेदखल कर देता है……कोई नही “बाप” नही “आप” सही…..राजनीति में फैली गंदगी को साफ़ करने के लिए आम आदमी झाडू का सहारा लेता है और तकरीबन गंदगी को साफ़ कर देता है………वह् सूपड़ा साफ़ कर

Arvind Kejriwal: Dark Horse Or Delhi’s Common Man

In the final part of our profiling Delhi’s Chief Ministers candidates, we take a look on someone who is almost called everything by everyone. Some call him king, some kingmaker; some call him Dark Horse while others say he is just “Delhi’s Common Man”. Arvind has differently captured the imagination of Delhi’ites like none else and though we don’t know how much will these talks about him convert to votes but if a decision was to be based on Social Media, he was a uncontested winner. His political party is perhaps the biggest story of this decade in India. Let
