Indian Election 2014: Seven Fragmented Thoughts

1. 
Rahul Gandhi must have read Lincoln, "I will study and get ready, and perhaps my chances will come".

Instead, he should have followed,

"Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle."

Lincoln, again!

2.

There are three kinds of people in politics, Self-Made, Never-Made and Self-Destroyed.

Good that there is never a category called 'Born Into" in democratic politics.

3. 

Larry Summers had a brilliant idea in the 1980s. He suggested all the polluting industries should be relocated from the First World to the Third World because the life costs less in the latter.

They just did that with Organised Political Marketing.

4. 

I was reading about the world's luckiest man, Frano Selak. Prakash Karat will somewhat come near him if he still survives this election being at the helm of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). 

 Perhaps he knows how to do what this man in video is doing.

5.

India will have a Great Leap Forward under Narendra Modi. It will surely turn out to be like the last one. (Read Tombstone)

6.

There are no contradictions in Mamta Banerjee's attitude towards Bangladeshis. 

She does not want to give them water, so that their farming dies and they starve; that way, they ultimately have to become destitute, come to India illegally and vote for her against a ration card she would give because she is so humane.

 7. 

May 16th 2014 is not like 15th August 1947. It feels like 30th January 1948 already.

How To Live

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

- Theodore Roosevelt

Last Words

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

- T S Eliot
