Your Vote is Precious - Use it wisely

"It is never too late to give up your prejudices"
 - Henry David Thoreau

121 Parliamentary Constituencies (PC) go to polls tomorrow (17th April) and 117 PC next week on 24th March. That makes it a whopping 238 PC, almost half the electorate will exercise their franchise on these two dates. I thought it would be an ideal time to re-visit some of my earlier posts, just to refresh and share them once again with the fellow Voters.

Like someone rightly said: “If you don't Vote, you lose the right to complain”. So yes, we must Vote! But what is even more important is to Vote with a Well-informed, Unbiased and Fearless mind. So sharing here some of my thoughts and ideas from past blogposts, only to put forward a perspective as a fellow Voter.

Disclosure at the outset would be in order: This is not an 'appeal' to Vote for a Particular Party or a Candidate. I am not making a pitch for NaMo as PM – he does not need it. This is just a perspective and opinion of your fellow Voter, Period!

Of Distortians, Intellectuals and Spin-Doctors

Let us start with this one first, as this is where it all Originates from. 
We discussed three broad categories of information resources: Distortians (Level I), Poweratti (Level II) & Spin-Doctors (Level III). These three tribes put together is one big canvas of all those who peddle 'manufactured lies' in the name of 'Facts and Data'. They run their 'daily discourse' on India, from within and outside the country, serving their 'employers'. This has been a 'cottage industry' that has grown around us during the last two decades and they now have taken complete control of our daily lives. They do it for very simple reasons – money, status, job – terms like 'Country' and 'Nation' do not have any place in their dictionary. Yes, you guessed it right, they are Sickular, and let me also add that almost all of them fall under at least one of these categories: Commies, 'Fake-Liberals', 'Left-Liberals' and 'Crony-Socialists'.
Reason why I bring this up here right in the beginning is to highlight the fact that it is the 'Source' of News & Information that is becoming lot more important today than the 'Content'.
In my opinion, this is the most dangerous internal threat that India faces today as a Sovereign Republic.

Decoding NaMo : From a Classical Liberal perspective

Next point of discussion should obviously be the ideology, the 'ism' that would influence our decision on whom to Vote. NaMo is the only elected representative in the current political space in India, of course except JP of LSP, who in the capacity of a CM and now as PM designate, has explicitly, consistently and openly talked about some of the most fundamental aspects of governance, that draw straight from the Classical Liberal ideology – also the ideology that is most identifiable with “Swatantra Party”. Key points are:
  • Minimum Government with Maximum Governance
  • First Order Function
  • Nation First
  • No Appeasement & No Discrimination
  • Equality of Opportunity instead of Equality of Outcome
  • Pro-people, Proactive Good Governance (P2G2)
  • Federal Model of Governance
  • Opposes the very concept of “Nanny State” and “Intrusive Government”

Decoding NaMo : From Lutyens' Delhi perspective

Next, we need to figure out why there is so much of negative Publicity & Tags attached to NaMo.
In this post I coined the term 'Poweratti', that includes Politicians, Diplomats, Bureaucrats, Industrialists, Advocates, Journalists, Authors, Property-Dealers, Socialites, Historians, Artists, etc etc. This is the “gated-community” where no outsiders are allowed.
M R Venkatesh, in his book titled 'A Decade of Decay' has brilliantly argued in a chapter titled: "Modi has arrived. But is India ready?"
NaMo could well disturb the status-quo of the “Poweratti” and bring in a fresh perspective of a free and liberated democracy to the common man.

Decoding NaMo – From The Propaganda Perspective

And finally, NaMo carries the baggage of being a Fascist, Communist, Mass Murderer, Autocratic, Anti-Muslim, Hitler, etc etc. Twelve long years have passed and yet the ghost of 2002 is still not letting go of him. Anti-Modi literature has turned out to be a hugely remunerative cottage industry over the last decade and all actors of this theatre called “Propaganda Politics”, have benefitted tremendously from this industry. Madhu Kishwar says and I quote: “Modi bashing is ideologically fashionable”. I liked her description of “ideologically fashionable” !! Perfectly fits into the Bhadralok character of Lutyens Delhi. Nobody has threatened the very existence of Dynastic Congress other than NaMo.
Let us break free of the Dynastic Rule by Mobocracy and celebrate the True Democracy!

AAP – Theatre of the absurd: a congregation of NGOs, Activists & Bored CEOs

LS 2014 elections would be incomplete without discussing AAP. This post surely would upset many but I write this with a sense of responsibility based on my knowledge of events and facts. This is a classic master-stroke of Congress and the 'Paid Media' is once again doing what it does best, serve the Dynasty. Congress already knows where it stands today as far as 2014 Lok Sabha elections are concerned. Congress has exhausted all their tricks to keep NaMo away from contesting 2014 Lok Sabha polls. So this is the last and final attempt of Congress, pitching AAP against NaMo.

Good Luck, Mother India! May you get the BEST Government that you deserve!!

AAP – Theatre of the absurd: a congregation of NGOs, Activists & Bored CEOs

“Road to Hell is paved with Good intentions”

AAP: Theatre of the absurd
This post is not about Arvind Kejriwal (AK) - the person, the activist. He is way above those who would malign him on grounds of personal integrity, honesty, a genuine desire and intention to do something real good for the Nation. Of this, I am absolutely convinced. I also respect him for taking the plunge into active politics. By doing so, he showed the Sibals and Diggis that when push comes to shove, a common man like AK can pack them into the oblivion.
In short, AK is a revolutionary and an activist for public good par excellence.

The excitement is palpable
The problem started when AK the activist, turns into a willing CM; on flimsy and compromised support of the same whom he was fighting against all these years. He would have done wonders leading the opposition with 28 AAP MLAs on his side, using Activism to his full strength. Even if it called for an outside support to BJP. This weakness & the rush for Power with a poorly crafted decision to form a feeble and compromised government was the starting point of my disconnect with AK. The next steps that followed after AK took over Delhi pushed me totally against AK & his NGO-Activist-political outfit AAP. Their poll manifesto, public policy blueprint (if there is any) and their actions subsequent to taking over reigns of Delhi; are extremely regressive for India & its future. An AAP member who happens to be the former Chief Secretary rank IAS officer, busy drafting the Swaraj Bill for AAP opines: Globalization main cause of corruption: AAP official. A brilliant AAP idea is their bid for 90% reservation in Delhi colleges for Delhites. Reversal of policy on FDI in multi-brand retail. Who else but the communists would love all of this to say AAP did what CPM wanted to do: Prakash Karat

Dark Days ahead!
AK and his stellar team were fully aware that most of the poll-promises made by them would not be possible without the constitutional amendments. Barely a week into the office, AK & his team of AAP ministers delivered on their poll promise of water and power subsidies, only to put Delhites through the obvious:
Dark days ahead? Delhi discoms warn of payment crisis if rates aren't hiked.

I always thought AK would make a good administrator, given his IRS background. But was shocked and amused to see the way he conducted his very first public meeting, where Too much janata, Kejriwal's first darbar ends in near-stampede:

Click to enlarge
This report would pass the “Laughter Challenge” and it makes for a truly amusing read - I quote:
Later he reappeared on the roof inside the secretariat complex to appeal for calm, as the darbar timings of 9.30 to 11 am were officially over. "Go back home now," he told the estimated crowd of about 20,000 people who refused to disperse, angered by the mismanagement. "We will make better arrangements next time," he said.
On a more serious note, please do read the full report to get a sense of his administration capabilities.

Finally, I thought AK had worked on the ground for 15 long years and hence would be familiar with the various models and practices already in place, as far as the local governance and grievance redressal is concerned. But I was wrong! I am surprised that he preferred to re-invent the wheel all over again when there is an excellent tried and tested mechanism already in place for grievance handling.

I had promised myself not to mention NaMo in this post at all but I changed my mind now. Everyone who got super excited about the first ever Public Grievances Meeting conducted by AAP surely were not aware and had never heard of SWAGAT:
This scheme has been running in Gujarat for the last ten years with a brilliant track record of 92.45% of complaints resolved. United Nations recognised this fine work in June 2010 and awarded United Nations Public Service Award 2nd Place for:
"Improving Transparency, Accountability and Responsiveness in the Public Service Category" 

United Nations Public Service Award
Snapshot of SWAGAT session in progress

Obviously, the paid media that we read and watch every day will never talk about this as this comes from NaMo's Gujarat. Those interested may like to further study SWAGAT that puts technology at the forefront in solving problems of the common man. Then compare it with the dated “1863” model of AK's Durbar to conclude that the poor people of Delhi deserved better!

Digging deeper into the last 10-15 years of AK's history, one would notice that someone somewhere has been nurturing & funding a silent civil society revolution in India, pushing and backing AK all the way. Serious questions are raised on AK's association with the NGO Kabir, liberally funded by Ford Foundation, HIVOS, PRIA, POS and Dutch Embassy; the Magsaysay Award, which incidentally is also funded by the Ford Foundation; his staying posted at Delhi virtually all of his IRS Career while other honest officers like Khemka are shunted around twice every year.

This post surely would upset many but I write this with a sense of responsibility based on my knowledge of events and facts. It is not a sheer co-incident or a TRP-chasing media that AK & AAP are visible all over the electronic and print media. TRP can be chased by various other means as well and the Mainstream Media knows how to get there. This is a classic master-stroke of Congress and the Paid Media is once again doing what it does best, once paid well, serve the Dynasty. Congress already knows where it stands today as far as 2014 Lok Sabha elections are concerned. Congress has exhausted all their tricks to keep NaMo away from contesting 2014 Lok Sabha polls. So this is the last and final attempt of Congress, pitching AAP against NaMo. They support AAP at Delhi, bring AAP into the drawing rooms of urban India through “paid media” such that even the “loose-motions” of AK are discussed at length on prime time. Educated and informed voters from the urban India, closely following this “nautanki” on media, have already started writing off NaMo. In the meanwhile, expectations from AK & AAP will be pushed to the skies and then they will start falling flat on their poll promises in the absence of a clear mandate to carry out constitutional reforms, one after the other. Congress will then finally pull the rug, withdraw support and take high moral ground. 
Wow! See the bigger picture now?

Addendum: The adjective "Bored" in the title of this post is picked up from a nice article of Chetan Bhagat: Get the priorities right: India first, AAP second

Of Distortians, Intellectuals and Spin-Doctors

Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunters:
~ African Proverb

The vast landscape of News, Information and General Knowledge on modern history and current affairs is populated in various intriguing ways in India.

This has been a well established fact by now that the History taught in our schools through text-books has very little to do with actual facts and sequence of events. Contents of history text-books are collated in a particular way – read slantedmanoeuvred and distorted. Important and crucial events are suppressed, ignored & censored from being exposed to the young minds. Idea is to push the young ones towards rote-learning by cramming up the historical dates of basic events, mostly birth and death anniversaries, and to a large extent the chronology. No wonder History is considered the most hated subject by the young minds as they do not find any value or interest whatsoever in remembering some dates and numbers.

This process of systemic distortion of historical facts and data is called Negationism. 
Wikipedia defines the term as follows and I quote:
Negationism, as it applies to historical revisionism, is the denial and distortion of established historical facts, usually related to the denial of war crimes or crimes against humanity.

Koenraad Elst, a noted Belgian author and historian, explains Negationism in India as follows:
historians of the Aligarh school (e.g. Irfan Habib) or Indian Marxists (e.g. Romila Thapar) have resorted to history-rewriting: "Therefore, in 1982 the National Council of Educational Research and Training issued a directive for the rewriting of schoolbooks. Among other things, it stipulated that: "Characterization of the medieval period as a time of conflict between Hindus and Muslims is forbidden." Under Marxist pressure, negationism has become India's official policy."

This is the level of quality education that a society evolves with, when the education system and contents of text-books are controlled by the State, and outsourced to the Academia & Intelligentsia that lives off the very same Government.

Only when the young ones turn into adults, and they start reading on their own from the vast ocean of historical facts and events, using resources available to them, thanks to the power of internet. IF, only IF, they find true interest in the subject. Unfortunately, this number is extremely negligible as most of us like to pursue interests that are far more rewarding financially.

Let us very briefly profile these players who broadly contribute to the process of resource & content management, implementation, execution and proselytisation; in short - Negationism.

Distortians: These are the geneses, highly decorated & well placed intellectuals, historians, authors and academicians, with foreign Degrees, Research Papers, Books and National Awards to their long list of credentials. This comes to them broadly due to the fact that they are committed to serve the interests of the Dynasty and the State. Their job is basically to manufacture data, twist facts, write slanted articles and comment on current events to deflect all of it to a particular direction.
Tribe of these include some of the most “respected” names.


Seven Indians among top 100 intellectuals:

"India comes out shining too. Besides familiar names such as Al Gore, Noam Chomsky, Francis Fukuyama, Umberto Eco, Lee Kuan Yew, the list has some half-dozen Indians: historian Ramachandra Guha, political psychologist Ashis Nandy, and environmentalist Sunita Narain, all of whom live in India, among them... 
...Four other Indians based outside India also make the list: Economist-Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, journalist author Fareed Zakaria, novelist Salman Rushdie, and San Diego-based neuroscientist V S Ramachandran."

Bhadralok (Intellectuals and Civil Society):

Next is the elite crowd of the society that is also known as Socialites – they include the likes of Crony-Industrialists, Editors and Celebrity Journalists, Advocates, Educationists & University V-Cs. These people are well connected, educated, arrived in life and are “high” achievers, thanks to their crony-network and “bhai-chara”. They follow like sheep and draw heavily from the works of Distortians. They form the second line of defence and help populate distorted content, through text-books, Journals, Media, Newspaper articles, TV Debates etc.
I call them the “Poweratti” and they are briefly discussed in one of my earlier posts linked here.

Rajeev Mantri and Harsh Gupta, in an article India’s cocooned intellectual elite argue:
“The reason India’s intellectual establishment doesn’t challenge the government’s policies on a philosophical plane is that it is very comfortable with the status quo and in fact is in broad agreement with the leftist philosophy that has directed governance in India almost uninterrupted since independence.”

Political Spin-Doctors:

This is the single most dangerous tribe that we have amongst us today. Their work borders around the activities of an anti-national. They are a huge security threat to the nation and they thrive under the protection and support of current dynastic politics. They come in various avatars: NGOs, Bureaucrats (rogue IAS & IPS), Magicians of Faith industry, Journalists etc. In short, they are the “foot-soldiers” of Poweratti. They actually carry out the agenda on ground zero. They are the first point of contact for the common man. Being “foot-soldiers”, they are the first head to be rolled in case the heat gets across to the Poweratti.
Shoot the messenger, as they say! And, life goes on !!

Unfortunately some of us have been greatly influenced by these spin-doctors, taking them and their “body-of-work” at face value. While we all are free to chose our resources for information & data; draw inspiration from certain people; it has become increasingly important to carry out a very detailed due diligence on the credibility and authenticity of such resources & people. The current climate in India is in such a mess that it is becoming increasingly impossible to make a clear assessment on “who's who” and their “internal-alignments” and network-relationships, that also change by the turn of events.

We will discuss in the next post, some of these “spin-doctor” resources to demolish the building blocks of their myths and manufactured facts.

Decoding NaMo – From The Propaganda Perspective

"I think the greatest single enemy is the misuse of information, 
the perversion of truth in the hands of terribly skilful people."
~ John le Carré

This is the third in a series of posts on NaMo, after the earlier ones:
Decoding NaMo : From a Classical Liberal perspective
Decoding NaMo : From Lutyens' Delhi perspective

This post is dedicated to the millions of ordinary people: self-respecting, law-abiding, well-meaning citizens, who do their daily prayers, go through their daily routine balancing life between job, school, children, parents and family. Among all of this grind there is a routine mundane activity (and every Indian child is ceremoniously “cultured” to get into it over her formative years) that includes reading daily newspaper and watching TV News. Basically, follow the mainstream media to keep one updated with the current events, “knowledgable” debates and “intelligent” opinions, that would eventually shape the judgement and decision of each one of us, as a potential voter one day, to select our Representative candidate or vote for a Political Party.

It has been eleven long years since the unfortunate Godhra 2002 but, the screaming headlines, cacophony of debates on TV, and reams of literature is still occupying the mainstream media space all around us. For a moment, one can not stop but wonder:

“If Godhra 2002 is the only communal riots that ever happened in the history of independent India” 


“Ishrat Jehan was the only fake encounter that ever happened in India?”

No, I am not even remotely suggesting that these unfortunate events are not worthy of a discussion or a debate – but for eternity? I seriously doubt! Events such as these are a blot on any civilized society and indeed should be put through the most rigorous and fair judicial process to take them to a logical conclusion. Once this is done, the society moves on!

Problem is with the selective targeting of an event, keeping it alive feeding with loads of misleading and factually incorrect information and living with it for over a decade. This constant feeding and feasting by the Mainstream Media (MSM) selectively over one single incident for more than a decade, especially when that happens to be as sensitive and unpleasant as a communal violence, even while the due process of law is taking its course, raises a few serious questions: 
a) why this selective “condemnation” and “public debate”?
b) why this “trial-by-media” 24x7 on the selective Gujarat riots? 
c) why even after a decade we still talk about and remind ourselves of Godhra 2002? Considering the fact that Gujarat and the people of Gujarat have since worked towards to ensure that they never had to face such unpleasant and barbaric communal riots in the last 11 years?
d) Even after the Supreme Court has passed its verdict in no uncertain terms and cleared all doubts about even a remote culpability of the CM?
e) No other Chief Minister of a State has ever been testified and grilled over 8 hours for a communal riot, only to be finally absolved of all charges by the Supreme Court. 

Yet, the MSM does not want to let go of it - Why?

There must be something more to it than just meet the public eye – that, my friends, is “Propaganda Politics”. In simple terms, a Lie that is repeated over and over again for 99 times replaces Truth the 100th time. This is the very premise of “Propaganda Politics”. Actors and Players of this game include: Politicians, Crony-Corporates, Paid Academia & Intelligentsia, Rogue Public Servants, Rogue NGOs, Religious Leaders with political ambitions, and most important of all - सूत्रधार - the architect - MEDIA! 

Enter, Narendra Modi (NaMo). For the first time in the political history of independent India, Congress, as a leading party of the ruling UPA coalition, is rattled to the core. Nobody has threatened the very existence of Dynastic Congress other than NaMo. 
Let us break free of the Dynastic Rule by Mobocracy and celebrate the True Democracy!

NaMo is the only politician who does not own a media-house or a TV channel, nor does he hide behind one, to gate-crash into our homes secretly and play his tunes 24x7, unlike most of his counterparts. He communicates directly with us via social media and does not sell any news-subscription to run a hidden agenda. If you like to listen to him, you chose to follow his Blog, Twitter and Facebook Page - as simple as that!!

Anti-Modi literature has turned out to be a hugely remunerative cottage industry over the last decade and all actors of this theatre called “Propaganda Politics” as mentioned above, have benefitted tremendously from this industry.

Coming back to the Propaganda Politics - this is how it works and I quote just a few examples here from my laundry list:

Starting with the mother of all - NDTV (Nehru Dynasty Television) - Nidhi Razdan interviews the British MP, Mr. Barry Gardiner.

Nidhi Razdan's interview of British MP Barry Gardiner on Narendra Modi

I quote Mr. Gardiner verbatim from this interview (emphasis mine):
"…It seems you have no respect for your own Supreme Court. The Supreme Court of India has looked at those allegations, I believe, on a number of occasions. And has absolved Mr Narendra Modi completely from those allegations. For you to be bringing them up on Indian television is extraordinarily strange."
“You are very very keen to talk over me rather than conduct an interview. But if you think democracy is best served by not observing the views and judgments of your own Supreme Court then I am most surprised.”
Now, CNN IBN hot shot, Rajdeep Sardesai was also upset with the British MP Gardiner for inviting NaMo to UK – this is a must watch interview to get a sense of the slant and the agenda, which otherwise goes unnoticed every single weeknight.

British MP Gardiner Exposing Rajdeep Sardesai's biased behaviour against Narendra Modi

Readers may like to know that Barry Gardiner is an MP from a constituency Brent North in UK, which constitutes 51% Asian population and 32% Hindu. Unlike MSM, I like to share all the information that is available to me!

“Yen Ram” to “Hey Ram!” - Having messed up big time the reputation of a fine newspaper The Hindu that was built over 100 years, this commie (yes, a communist and a comedian) shares his unsolicited opinion yet again – nothing new – same old rants and same old lies - 
"The Gujarat pogrom is the elephant in BJP’s parlour. It is the unbreakable genetic connection between 2002 and the present that makes it clear that a Narendra Modi prime ministership would be disastrous for democratic and secular India"
Karan Thapar lies & propaganda countered by Arun Jaitley, point-by-point:
Modi's anointment as BJP PM nominee done in democratic way, says Jaitley

Here is a typical glimpse from an educated, elitist and far-from-reality sickular rant:
Most recently, came across an article and quoting these “words of wisdom” coming straight from the Indian origin author, whose tagline of introduction reads: “a historian based in Copenhagen
“The reasons are well founded. The brutality of anti-Muslim violence in Gujarat, the fake encounter killings, economic boycott of Muslims and spatial segregation that keeps Hindus and Muslims apart in Gujarati cities is all too well know. The thought of Gujarat being replicated on an all-India scale is beyond imagination especially for the minority communities.”
This historian author would never have visited Gujarat even once but liberally comments on the brutality, fake-encounters, segregation and economic boycott of minority Muslims; needless to say that such rhetoric and rants feed on borrowed opinion of the Paid MSM and Intelligentsia.

Now compare all of this with one of our finest journalists who is hugely respected for her outstanding work in Journalism. She has spent almost 4 long decades covering riots and communal disturbances across India. Yes, Madhu Purnima Kishwar. Here is what she had to say about Gujarat and I quote:
“As of now, whatever evidence I have examined convinces me that no man in recent history has been so maligned and hounded so mercilessly for doing all the right things as Narendra Modi. But the issue is not Narendra Modi. He doesn’t need me to defend him. The issue is subversion of democracy in India by systematic manipulation of the media, letting loose a divisive hate campaign designed to create mistrust and fear among Hindus, Muslims and Christians, manipulating agencies of the state—including the judiciary, CBI, IB, police and much else—all to serve the partisan ends of the Congress party’s ruling Dynasty.”
Further, she goes on to say: “Modi bashing is ideologically fashionable”. 
I like her concept of “ideologically fashionable”! Perfectly fits into the Bhadralok character of Lutyens Delhi.
In another article The Kettle Hits Back in Outlook, she argues:
"However, the Gujarat riots of 2002 converted Modi bashing into an extremely rewarding career advancement strategy for media persons, NGO activists, academics and sundry intellectuals. Conversely, you are condemned to lifelong perdition, treated as a political and intellectual outcast subject to unending vilification campaigns starting with being labelled a fascist if you dare say one word either in defense of Modi or suggest a bit of caution to Modi bashers."
Readers may like to know that Madhu Kishwar has since been branded as RSS & Modi stooge by the Paid Media.

In this maze and abundance of cluttered information, it becomes very difficult for the ordinary people like us to be selective and not get easily carried away with opinions and propaganda based on sheer lies. The headlines are intentionally slanted such that they send out totally different message from the actual news or the event that it reports. 

So much for all of us ordinary millions who regularly watch TV news and read newspapers every day to stay “informed” and build our opinions accordingly. 

But there is some good news - the wheels of time are slowly changing:

Karan Thapar, the Devil, has started to tone down his rhetoric and consequently has managed to save his job and the show Devil's Advocate at CNN IBN: Arun Shourie at Devil's advocate:

Congress Mouthpiece, Tehelka has also started to publish such fine article recently, this one is titled Patna blasts: The radio silence on a failed assassination by Smita Barooah, with a footnote: “She writes on social and political issues from a Right Liberal perspective (The views expressed in this column are the writer’s own)” - a protective coating to prevent a possible backlash from the Congress? Quoting these lines from this article:
“The radio silence on a failed assassination has exposed the hypocrisy of various sections of India’s elite: the mainstream media, politicians and many so-called intellectuals. Human rights apply to them and their chosen ones; the rest are expendable. In fact, if the man in question is Narendra Modi, they might even consider it a case of good riddance. “
Mr. Ram Jethmalani concludes his article in The Sunday Guardian: Let truth be known about Modi
"Well, the lengthy SIT process that involved thousands of witnesses and reams of evidence is over, and Modi has emerged unscathed. It is now time that the conspiracy against Modi and Gujarat should forcefully be informed to the general public, the "secular" intellectuals, the opinion makers and the media."
So next time around, before quoting from a mainstream media source, or claiming that you read it in today's newspaper, think again!

“If you abuse Modi you will get a Rajya Sabha seat or a Padma Shree or a Padma Bhushan.” 
~ NaMo

मित्रों, I can not think of better words to close this long and tiresome post - these words from Atal Ji's landmark speech in parliament, that are so very relevant in the current political context:
"इस देश में इस समय लोगों के विचारों में मंथन चल रहा है |  चिंतन की दिशाएं बदल रही हैं | लोग पुरानी मान्यताओं को फिर से कसौटी पर कस रहे हैं | "
