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

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

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
