Corporatization of Indian Political system

Since the first Lok sabha election all the MPs who are elected don't even have clear cut roles and responsibilities.This shows the constitution of India has not mandated any Key Result Areas and Performance Indicators for our elected representatives.
As a result of which all these elected representatives are enjoying the public money without any accountability.
Shall we continue with ostrich like behaviour to continue or shall make necessary changes in our constitution so that the elected representatives are made accountable and made to do perform as per the expectations from them?
India as nation should ponder on this and decide what is expected from the elected representatives .
Once the KRAs and KPIs are decided it must be reviewed in full public view and all the reports should be published so that the people can see what is being done by thier representatives.
In order to make India a better country the time has come when we and our elected representatives must work as corporate citizens with clear Roles and Responsibilities.
Jai Ho!!!

Indian Election..The people don't have a choice

One more time the Indians will be fooling themselves by saying"Dot hai toh hot hai".

Do our electoral system really give the choice to choose their future to the people?


Do we have a choice of rejecting all the candidates?


The question is do we need a choice of rejecting all the candidates.

In present circumstances when most of the candidates are having criminal and questionable background don't you think the choice of rejection should also be given to the "aam aadmi".
If more than a fixed percentage of people of that constituency rejects the candidates then all these candidates must be barred from elections and the political parties will have to put forth new candidates.

If this right is given then don't you think all the political parties will give chance to clean,educated,non controversial ,accepatable candidates .

Also given a chance for entire 5 year term without any review mechanism of the performance of the candidates gives them a free run for amassing public wealth without an iota of remorse or shame.

After 3 years there must be referandum so that so that the non performers are asked to put in their papers and the chance must be given to the next best candidate.

Jai Ho!!

Shoe Throwing at Politicians

Lets not be surprised if more politicians are targetted with shoes.Its not the shoes that is being thrown at the politicians but these are the frustrations of the middle class "aam aadmi".
Lot of melodramatic soaps have happened in the lives of "aam aadmi".The Indian middle class being gullible and always think that everything will be hunky dory in future.

However with the recession raising its head we are on the verge of a revolution by the Young India.As a citizen of this great nation lets all resolve to put an end to the politicians loot of the national assets and let stop playing with the lives of the "aam aadmi".
We may be happy that India is better than Pakistan or Bangladesh but why should we be contented with such myopic point of view.
When China can challenge US and other developed nations what stops us from following suit.
The nation buliding exercise starts with us..the "aam aadmi".
Jai Ho!!

Lazily I have to pull up my entire weight from the chair to move out.
The song on FM was also not amusing to the ears.Only one thing was appearing on the horizon of my mind was recession. How to manage such a situation which were mere words for a student of economics?Can we cant we?How to support the entire family and to manage their expectations?God has created me for that I thought.Still its easier said than done.

When did I reach the station even I was amazed at the speed of thoughts.

The train was choc o block and to the brim.Thoughts of recession and the palpable tension was there and it clearly showed on my nerves.

The mad rush which this maximum city chases started disappearing .

The train was also in no mood to pull up. Even it may be feeling the tensions of the situation. Chugging become a routine and destinations was not in sight.

I was waked up by the meek voice of child .Children’s drawing books may be ten was still there to be sold before he hits from home.A small kid may be 7 yrs of lean stature was not a typical sales man type.Was more aggressive in prodding a few of the gentlemen. But it was below every one’s dignity to even share a cursory glance at the lowly sales guys.All the so called gentlemen may be failure in their own life but who admits.

Suddenly a young guy started to look at those books ,the little sales man still did not show any emotions .Tired and exhausted he just sat and was whiling way his time .A confidence was etched on his small face.

The young guy took 5 books the child called Rs 50/- and moved .

The train has virtually stopped .Again the little sales man with stoic but confident face could kindle a demand in some to buy the rest of the books.The little sales man started counting all the 10 rupees and put it in his front shirt pocket.

Seeing the grit of the little sales man i started wondering how has recession hit this man of 7 at 9 o’clock in the night.Other gentlemen also nodded in agreement.

A thought started floating whether we would have allowed our 7 year olds to board a train at such unearthly hours!

What we would have done if the recession directly hits us?

Since the little sales man was not aware of recession he was positively psyched.

The negative thought brings so much negativity and starts hitting our collective psyche.

Long live the little sales man long live his determination to excel when the world throws in their towel.
