Is KCR losing the war?

There is a war out there and KCR is staring at a likely defeat. If you look at it, KCR has slept with both TDP and Congress, the two parties now acting in concert to defeat him. KCR is microcosm of Indian politics and Indian politicians. For KCR ideology comes with an expiry date. He started with congress shifted to TDP, started his own party TRS and became a Union Minister of a Congress led coalition. In most of his political career spanning over four decades, KCR has always played his cards close to his chest. 2018 […]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

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

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

A mountain for EVMs please!

This equals the power of Zeus, the Greek God of sky and thunder, for our EVMs are no less powerful. The Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) was created to create the all-pervasive, all-powerful rulers of the world. Strong and bountiful in the range and diversity of its creations, our EVMs must be worshipped for all its power. The “I shall prevail” cry of the lord, missed by those who fail to recognize the extraordinary power of the EVMs. It isn’t a feat expected of a poor mortal like you and me; one has to be the chosen one. That privilege my […]Read more

The Colourful Life Of An Exit Poll

Exit Polls are a unique species, loved by all and hated by some. That ‘some’ includes Bollywood which looks upon the exit polls the way a ‘Saas’ would on seeing her newly arrived cheeky ‘Bahu,’ in one of the typically tempestuous family serials on Indian television. The life and times of an exit poll in India is colourful, entertaining, analytical, intriguing, enraging, outrageous, fun and entertaining, all at the same time. No other event dies as quickly as it arrives, and during the time in between, attracts one and all like flies to food. On D-day, expect […]Read more

In Gujarat, one little finger became the funny guy

Life can be funny and offensive at the same time, and if you ask the Prime Minister’s little forefinger, he too will agree. Now, this little guy is carried around by everyone and every politician worth his salt will do anything just to please this one little finger. This is the same little guy that can bring in a government or bring it down. Forget ballistic missiles, submarines, fighter aircraft; all it takes is the finger to press the right button on election day and Voila! We have a new government. So, what was so unusual about […]Read more

Ooff! It’s that Rahul again

Three months on the road going through the rough and tumble of straining every vocal chord in the body, the campaigning in Gujarat finally came to a close. And, just when PM Modi sits down with old buddy Amit Shah to enjoy his ‘famous’ well-earned, though not necessarily self-prepared, Chai, comes the Breaking News of little brat Rahul once again going before the camera trying to steal the beautifully handwoven electoral carpet from under BJP’s feet. That too, on a day that was supposed be a ‘Rest Day’, as they say in cricket. Sacrilegious! The lovely sun […]Read more

Gujarat Elections – Pakistan does interfere

Yes, Pakistan does interfere in Indian elections, they continually do this. What is original here? What is the news? Just because PM Modi has alleged this, right? All countries do this, this is called diplomacy, protecting their rights and ensuring that it doesn’t become too hot for them. Pakistan media covers Indian elections as we cover military rules and elections in Pakistan. We do wish for lesser of the evil to take over in Pakistan and so would Pakistan like India to be ruled by a so-called “secular” party for obvious and indiscernible reasons. To be fair, […]Read more

Gujarat Round 1

Gujarat Round 1 was more like Great Gujarat Circus with countless characters and their real, fake and not so fake accounts. Here is what all made for the Great Gujarat Entertainment: Old came, older than old came, nearly dying came, almost on the deathbed came, on wheelchairs came, on stretchers came and they all came for their 10 minutes of photo op and fame. On stretchers came? I didn’t see that? Hmm… a stretch but aren’t elections all about that? Estimates vary between 68% and 71% polling and psephologists point out that everywhere polling has been above […]Read more
