All work and no play makes politics a dull ploy

The reason why we politicians love elections so much is that it’s a time when holiday and carnival festivities come together. You see, people celebrate various festivals though out the year but has anybody ever asked how we politicians like to celebrate our festivals and holidays? You may want to ask since when have politicians started to have festivals? For politicians, election time is festival and holiday time. It is for these holidays that we politicians save up our meagre savings throughout the year, and sometimes for five years. I am sure you will understand. Don’t you […]Read more

Is Gujarat semifinal of Karnataka?

Sikander/Alexander, an invader, a foreigner, defeated Raja Poru, an ethic Indian and, our BJP politicians are happily anointing themselves as Sikander, so much of Bollywood with so little of history. Definitely, if Congress was as agile as BJP it would’ve by now taken the wind out of the sails of BJP’s armada. But then Congress is not BJP, at least, as yet. Karnataka is going to be a very different battle, each seat would be contested and margins are going to come down. Congress feels that they couldn’t mobilize their voters well and BJP feels that they […]Read more

The film isn’t over yet, my friend -Gujarat Results

Lot of Gujaratis fund Bollywood and are producers and they are familiar with the phrase “picture abhi baki hai, mere dost” (The film isn’t over yet, my friend)”. We can imagine even Modi Ji asking Amit Shah, abhi kitni picture baki hai? (How much of the film is still left?). This is promising to be the nail-biting finish few elections have seen before, not that BJP can lose at this stage but issue is how much has BJP’s citadel crumbled in Gujarat and how much of it would’ve crumbled in other states. What if BJP had not […]Read more

Who is more divisive? Congress or BJP?

Battle was fought in Gujarat. Results are being declared in Gujarat and accusations are flying in all directions on all TV channels. Now with almost certain BJP government in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh done and dusted, debate has shifted over to who has been more mean and demeaning, Congress or BJP? Who was more evil, Congress or BJP? Who was more opportunist, Congress or BJP? And finally, who was more divisive, Congress or BJP? Interesting is everyone agrees that both parties have been demeaning, evil, opportunist and divisive, it is only the degree of bankruptcy of development […]Read more

Is AAP the unseen hand in BJP’s victory?

What happened to AAP? They couldn’t have got BJP votes? Did they actually eat into Congress votes in crucial seats?  Are they the unseen hand in BJP’s victory? Did BJP win because AAP took few thousand votes away from Congress in closely contest seats? Yes, one can’t rule out this possibility but chances are fairly limited of this having happened. To reach to a conclusion on this matter one has to deep dive in each of those 20 odd constituencies from where AAP fought and look at victory margin. We are sure 3-4 seats may have been […]Read more

From Pappu Pass Ho Gaya to BJP Pass Ho Gayi!

BJP pass ho gayi. Can you imagine, BJP itself saying it? Looks like they are not even bothered to look at their target of 150 and are happy as long as they can form the government. It is almost certain that Pappu is going to be taken more seriously by BJP and this shake up gives a new reference point for BJP. The new reference point is “BJP pass ho gayi”. Congress is buoyant that if they can get a student who was looking at 90% + staring at 50-60% range, the game has changed and a […]Read more

Gujarat Elections – Nobody is Very Happy

BJP is happy, Congress is happy, Hardik Patel is happy but none of them are very happy. BJP didn’t get 150+. Congress didn’t form the government and Hardik couldn’t stop Patels with BJP from winning. At the end of the day, the battle quickly shifts to Karnataka. BJP would like to bank lesser on towering personality of Narendra Modi to give them another victory but do they really have a choice? Not at this stage, though. Was Neech Adami the turning point for BJP? If Mani Shankar Aiyer had not called names, even inadvertently, could Congress have […]Read more

In Gujarat, Narendra Modi Won and BJP Lost, Right?

For Gujaratis, it was a tough call, but they did decide, they did vote for Son of Gujarat and decided to give BJP a wake-up call. And what a wake up call it has been. BJP may not be able to hold to 108 and may go beyond 110, or BJP may go below 100 and if it does, BJP will need some more towels for tears and sweat. Congress has more than a few lessons to learn, they can’t outsource their campaign and they can’t play a second fiddle to any regional leader. In Gujarat for […]Read more

Congress Leaders Have Their Job Cut For Karnataka

Congress won one region of Gujarat – Saurashtra. Now it has its job cut, what all it needs to do to win all of Karnataka. What all did they right in Saurashtra and can they replicate it? What is the demographic profile? What is SC/ST profiles? Region & Religion mashups need to be modelled out and formula for defeating BJP needs to be decoded. Congress is not going to give Karnataka on a platter. BJP is celebrating but not the way they wanted to. But things always don’t go the Bollywood way, to everyone their own. Oh […]Read more
