I believe in the dynasty

I believe in dynasty. In fact I believe mostly in one family name. Yes, they may appear to be inseparable, but appearances may not be deceptive, seat warmers notwithstanding.


I believe that it is only one family and one surname (or two) that can do something for this country. I fully believe (this is my opinion, so I cannot be sued, right?) in the party and the family members over generations who won us freedom (do you doubt? Dont.). Now they do not want us to be free from them - after all they won us freedom did they not? When we could not do it ourselves, us nincompoops and our ancestors, who saved us? Therefore who has the continuous right to rule over us? And that means, I can only believe in them.

How can I, ignoramus, believe in anything else? I mean, all of us, the people of India of voting age, exist only to prop up the grand destiny of the dynasty, dont we? Havent we done so for many years when we were ruled by kings and their kids? Thats it, our 10 seconds of voter chaap fame...you and I are in the world only to fulfil this grand conspiracy of the universe...

Of course, you chose to ignore the fact that since then they held the country ransom to their style of politics, they also took over the English prerequisite of divide and rule and divided our country into a variety of self interested groups across religion, caste, creed, lakes and mountains. You chose to ignore the fact that we were subjected to a slowmo style of growth for a long long time and will continue to be thanks to rank fiscal profligacy. You also love the fact that we squandered our advantage at a time of boom in the world economy and now we are staring down the barrel (more or less).

And as far as this government goes, you believe they had the best interests of the country in mind when they decided to take the slow train for defence upgradations, when they took the slow route for terrorist investigations, when they put the highway program on a self decay, when a few thousand crores were lost as a result of some scam etc etc. (More on this in a few days) Well, whats a few peccadilloes for winning freedom sixty odd years ago?

You believe in the party all of whose youth leaders are people with the same family name of some of their senior members. You like that they give youth a chance, especially if they are from some families. So, what if other youth are not given a chance. Big deal. Go do your call center job macha so that you contribute to the growth of the country.

Because, you can. Because you believe. Because you are led to believe that change means only a different first name.

Because I am jealous.

Jealous that none of my forefathers, did anything to build a dynasty so that I could be a prime minister or some such equivalent and get an unfair advantage in life. Which is why I am not a fan of any political dynasty who gets things on a platter. After all, I did not get anything for free...

Sorry, the headline is completely misleading...and sorry for wasting your time. Get back in line into the matrix.

Dynastic politics is more prevalent in South Asia... Modern day Maharajas... But I fail to understand as to why people are not able to get rid of these dynasties? The answer is T.I.N.A - There Is No Alternative!

Iski ko Democracy kehte hai... What an idea... sirjee!

There was an American pop song years ago. Part of the lyrics were "...where even a foolish kid can grow up and be President " (which may have been a musical prophesy about Sri George Bush junior ). We need a song in India along the lines that kids of uncertain intellect and integrity can grow up (or even otherwise) become PM . Provided of course that you belong to the dynasty .
( we can request the Oscar winning duo Gulzar-ARR to write the song and compose the music )

There is always an alternative, Bhargo - one needs to look. In this case, we as idiot voters need to look.

If we followed the TINA principle, Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev would still be playing fr India and perhaps the English would be ruling us.

TINA is a mindset issue. Since it will never ever be in the mindset of those whose advantage it is, it has come from us, voters...

It happens only in India? or perhaps Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, whose lyrics and tunes will be suitable for such modification...
