Acche Din Aane Wale Hain?

Achche Din Aane Wale Hain ? ( Good Days Are Ahead?)



Results of Indian General Election 2014 yesterday gave a new national leader to the country in the form of Mr. Narender Modi. His rise is a case study for marketing and advertising people. He was present everywhere during election campaign whether it is news channels,newspapers,facebook,twitter,T-shirts,tea cups,Modi comics, chai pe charcha,3D rallies,etc which helped him reach maximum number of people and making an impact in their minds which other political parties failed to do. His mannerism and controversial behavior also helped him gain popularity.

Emergence of Narender Modi also helped people rise above caste politics which destroyed political presence of regional parties eliminating possibilities of their role as king or kingmaker as in last twenty-five years. These parties formed due to regional aspirations of each became mere pressure groups in coalition governments restricting governments to take any strong steps. Women reservation bill,Janlokpal bill, food security bill, targeted violence bill are some important bills and acts which remain hanging between the two houses of the parliament thanks to these regional parties. We know some parts of the country needs more attention than the others - the main demand of the regional parties however they failed to do so when came to power in their areas barring the few. 

As gaining the majority was a tough task for him so is the running of new government owing to the world economic crises which India is also facing. I think he knew this for which he raised the time limit from 60 to 120 months in his thank you speech in Ahmedabad after results were declared. In his election campaign speeches he made so much promises that completing them would be hard nut to crack as Oh Yes Abhi ! generation wanted everything immediately. It is not so that Manmohan Singh's government was not doing anything but the condition was so much worse that something extra is required to control inflation,generating employment, improving farmers condition,etc. ( You can check Manmohan Singh's efforts here.)

Modi's election campaign was much like Shah Rukh Khan's promotion of Ra.One. He with his presence at every platform during the release of the film made sure that everyone must watch that movie once similarly Modi brought people to vote for him once. Shah Rukh 's effort resulted in good box office collection for the otherwise flop film and Modi's efforts ensured  BJP Modi government of party with many differences among them. The coming of Modi government and not the BJP government gave scope to dictatorial tendencies.( I noticed a bit arrogance in his yesterday's speech.)

Question mark at the end of my title shows my doubt about good days since India of 1.25 billion population is entirely different from a wealthy Gujarat state of 60 million people. Also there must be some expectations of RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh ) parent organisation of BJP(Bhartiya Janata Party ) who devoted all his powers in promoting PM Modi and of those people who have spent enormous amount of money in his public rallies and meetings, how he handle this would also be interesting. Moreover a large population is feeling insecure under his leadership, to inculcate faith in them would be a daunting task. Congratulations and best of luck to him for the future only time will tell how positive or negative will be MODI-fication of politics.

  1. Interesting perspective. I high disagree with extremist orgs such as RSS and Modi is such a polarizing figure of Indian Politics. But, agree he pursued an aggressive social media campaign that turned out to be the winner during this elections. Let's hope and fingers crossed.

I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
