This one irked me the moment I read it. Lot of things (that is going on around the world) irk me these days but fortunately, this time around, I have the time to vent out my irritation right away through this blog. So spare with me and let peace rule the world.
The Thackerays are a shame to India as much as Shiv Sena is. But again the Shiv Sena of today is represented predominantly by the clout extended by Bal, Raj and Uday and their fanatic & narrow views. So may be we should give Sena a chance sans these 3 Ts…But again may be not because Sena sans the Ts is not a reality for 30 more years.
On the verge of trying to get back to power in the BMC elections, out he goes – the octogenarian in all his senile insensibilities and for no reason drags Mr. President to the mud – read this link http://headlines.sify.com/news/fullstory.php?id=14377944&headline=Thackeray~slams~President~Kalam
The Ts to Maharashtra are what Tirumavalavan and Ramadoss are to Tamil Nadu! The main difference being that the Ts actually have the capability to rule the state and destroy the country with their fanatic ideologies and ability to influence the religious psyche of their Hindu followers. In a third world country like India where more than fifty percent of the population lives below poverty line, an average Patel or an average Reddy is looking for some outlet that he can use to seek comfort from his daily miseries. And if that outlet is cheap it becomes easier. And that is exactly how we end up with a country full of religious political outfits and leaders & politicians (equally alike) who successfully manage to exploit the people and touch the most sensitive nerve in them.
Tirumavalavan and Ramadoss still thrive on basing their politics solely on Tamil pride and culture and not so much on religion. As destructive and obnoxious as some of their acts have been in the last 3-4 years, they still do not possess the “mass hypnosis” magic to take it one step further.
If there is one president who has stayed himself clearly out of any kind of political leaning in our country it has to be Kalam.
To pull his hair and to wrench his fame is to show their state of helplessness.
Let the Lord of Mr. T shower him and his kin with some sense, lots of dignity (as he has lost all of it – again)..and not enough votes!
