    Hi all,

    How many of you feel that Indian politics are amazing?
    How many of you know that Laloo Prasad Yadav can become the Prime Minister one day? I strongly say he can. When Sonia can become, why not he?

    You know, if you have good political connections you will never go to jail irrespective of the illegal activities you do. Power rules here. If you are into political circle, it is heaven for you.

    And on the other side - for common people it is hell.
    Do you think it is fair that they stop all traffic just for the CM's car to pass? Already the city roads are jammed, fly-overs construction going at the speed of a tortoise.
    These political heads and all other stupids involved should be killed right?

    And one best way to reduce population is to blast bombs at political party meetings. Hell lot of idiots gather there, sometimes roads are changed to one way and above all their noisy announcements on loudspeakers(We guys on IGT love music and hate noise right!)

    We should mentor and encourage the terrorists to blast bombs during party meetings instead of killing people at hospitals, railway stations and other common places. How many of you agree to this?

    Note: Dear Neo, I am not a terrorist, dont ban me:) One day I am going to become a CM, or atleast a local MLA.

    Who is our Indian Obama ??????


    I just voted on to find our Indian Obama.

    America has overcome its racial and religious divide and elected its Obama who inspires confidence with his sincerity and transparency across the globe.

    Do we have any with similar credentials in our country?

    Let us find ONE and make our nation more secure and safe for our posterity.

    I think these politicians are the most intelligent creatures in India.

    They know exactly which issues are most important to the Indian public. They are focussed, and they tackle only those issues.

    Now as a yuppy sitting in AC rooms and typing on PC, accessing internet using the broadband you may not understand this, but trust me, it has been working for decades, and these politicians know how indian public works.

    For example:
    A politician in Maharashtra knows how the common public is so fanatic about maratha pride and ganesh festivals.
    You think the public here cares a two hoots about living in a clean locale, having safe drinking water, having wide paved roads, having an access to 24 hour electricity, having less corrupt officials (who will actually hamper their various freedoms) ... and the list goes on.

    And what do the politicians do?
    They exactly tackle the issues highlighted in bold.
    Thus winning public affection, and winning votes.

    Actually, I think it's a little like the share market. You can research and prospect but you can never breathe easy.

    Taking your example, I disagree slightly in principle because there is a significant non-maharashtrian population in Maharashtra. I think the MNS has made a mistake by alienating non-maharashtrians completely. The Marathi vote is going to get divided between MNS and Shiv Sena and the non-Marathi (which could be the deciding factor) will most probably go to Shiv Sena. Udhav has just sat and watched Raj self-destruct.

    IMO, Raj always knew he couldn't get majority against Shiv Sena so he's gone for an "all or nothing" tactic. He has also tried to ensure that a chunk of non-maharashtrians leave so their votes, which would normally have gone against MNS, will be reduced. If he pulls it off, it will be spectacular. (and disastrous)

    Well to tell you the truth, I didn't have Shiv Sena or MNS in mind while I wrote that.
    It was NCP (which is in power).

    And I was not really referring to the grandiose topic of marathi manoos, or driving away the non-marathis, it was something I observed at the ground grass root levels here: the drunken revelry, celebration of festivals, lots of public money spent on similar activities by the local MLA/MP/candidate (again mostly NCP)

    Of course your observation/conclusion are pretty valid.

    haha damn, sorry for my total ignorance of maharashtrian politics (or even general politics). The NCP, imo, is really smart and subtle. Like you said, they imply support to marathi causes without really banging it on the table. I actually felt the power of Sharad Pawar after I shifted to Bombay. Before that, I just associated him with the BCCI.

    You need to pay attention. This is a thread from 2005 and Sonia Gandhi did have a chance to become the PM.

    And you might want to know there are things slower than a tortoise.
