Why Iftar? Why not Mata ka Jagran?

Ramadan is here and so are Iftar parties, one after another. In fact there is a race among Indian politicians to invite as many as their political counterparts as possible and broadcast their secularism to the minority of the nation.

Sonia Gandhi is giving an Iftar party. Arvind Kejriwal is also on the same bandwagon. President is also supposed to throw a lavish Iftar party. More or less every political party and big leader is throwing a party in the name of Iftar.

It is not a new thing but this practice is going on for years…. infact as far as I remember it has become more prominent since the time all political parties pretended to be more secular than the others. Secular as in more minority favorable parties; and by minority here, I do not mean Sikhs, Jains, Schedule castes or girls in India.

Media is also after this event as if it’s an Oscar party. Who attended whose party? Who clicked pic with whom? On that note did you saw Arvind kejriwal’s happily ever after kind of pic with his arch-enemy Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung. See the power of Ramadan.

Did you also notice in all the pics almost every non-muslim leader is wearing a skull-cap. That is also a great symbol of secularism. It is now a days a fashion statement of politicians who are Secular. Normal/common people who wear this cap may be wearing it for non fashionable reasons but how could they know that a mere cap is more than enough to turn a hypocrite into a Secular.

Do you also know that common man who fast on Ramadan usually breaks his fast with eating dates and drinking water. His Iftar is neither a lavish and grand party nor so much media seeking event.

This much talking about Iftar has made me hungry but before I go and eat my home cooked humble meal, there is one more thought that I would like to share with you.

So, I was just thinking, or kind of dreaming, what if these same politicians also do ‘Mata Ka Jagran’, or ‘kanchka – where they will feed little girls ‘kanyas’ and also give money to them. how empowering that would be? Or If they do Nanak Prabhat Pheri in the early morning hours, singing devotional songs. Or, if they throw thanksgiving parties to all the voters who voted for them and gave them power to rule for five years.

It was quite hilarious – that dream that I had.

Just imagine reading news about, ‘Sonia Gandhi has invited every political leader to her Mata ka Jagran event. She was herself dressed as Mata Durga, whereas Digvijay Singh was dressed in a Singh’s (Lion) costume. He was dancing keeping his tail in mouth.

Rahul Gandhi was seen dancing in full devotion to the tune of “beda paar karegi janpath vaali (oops jhande vaali) Maa”.

When Rahul Gandhi was dancing we saw Lalu Yadav and Mulayam shovering 10 and 20 rupees bills. Lalu also danced to his favorite devotional song ‘khushhaal karti, maala maal karti, sherowali maa apne bhakto ki nihaal karti’.

Narendra Modi arrived late, accompanying L. K. Advani by his side. While Modi was seen doing a shastaang pranam to Mata Durga (Sonia Gandhi dressed as Durga) and later giving a two-minute speech on acche din; Advani took mic in his hand and sang full song ‘Mata Sherawali bharde jholi khali’.

Kejriwal was wearing a red duppatta over his head and swinging his head in 360 degree. We later came to know that Mata Durga herself came in Kejriwal’s soul and blessed him. That was the reason of his head swinging, and not because he has lost his marbles.

It was great and blissful night when all the politicians joined together to pray to Maa Shakti Durga, and were blessed with good wisdom and honesty, if that’s possible.

PS. In no way this Jagran was a secular event.

The Melodrama Called AAP

The Melodrama Called AAP

I have always believed that real life is much more fascinating and captivating than any TV Drama Series or Soap Opera; AAP has once again proved it right.

Make no mistake AAP here is not a new Drama series starting on your cable, but it is recently emerged Indian Political party which has created shock-waves across by winning Delhi elections with huge majority.

But, it’s not the winning which creates interesting news; it is the way you handle your winnings, is what matters. Believe me when I say that AAP was not as fascinating before as it is now, with its ongoing internal party drama.

Infact daily I visit news articles hoping to see some new twist and turn in AAP, and it does oblige me with something new unbelievable twist in the story. To name a few of its dramatic turn of events – leaking of audio tapes of one of Arvind Kejriwal cursing his fellow party leaders, or just trying a negotiation for horse trading; or leaking of internal emails where party leaders are showing discontent with each other; high point was expelling of two key members in a highly inappropriate and anarchistic way; and then their press conference which was topping all the reality drama television. It was like perfect drama – better than any Roadies, or Big Boss, or The Bachelorette.

You may ask but what is so special about all this? Isn’t every political party is like this?

Yes, you are right. Every party is like this and every party has its own internal dramas, but why AAP stood out more in this political mess is because AAP was created with the mindset that every political party is similar, and nation wants a new system/party which is more transparent and reachable to common men. It was the sacrifice, struggle and crusade of so many honest Indians against corruption which gave birth to AAP.

Now those same honest party volunteers are asking their donations back. Clearly, the trust is broken. Trust that they had on their leaders to provide them an honest alternative in today’s times of dirty politics; but alas; when it came to Power, every party behave in same way. Infact AAP has left behind other parties in its showcase of drama and anarchy.

Question which should be raised to these so-called honest party leaders is that – Why now? Why they didn’t expelled or reported dirty politics before elections? Why only after they won the election and now wants a share of Power, that they started pointing out the problems in party leadership? Problems which were not new but started about year back.

Why now?

Kejriwal was always presumed as an anarchist, who prefers to have his way, be it right or wrong. He wants to be high command. He prefers having ‘Yes Man‘, and not voice of differences.

Yadav and Bhushan have invested so much in this party, be it their time, money, ideas, efforts, actually everything. Now, they want equal standing in the party. They want an equal say. They are not wrong in this demand, although their timing is suspicious.

If yadav and bhushan were that honest, why didn’t they reported the atrocious things going on in their party? Was winning Delhi elections, more important than keeping your party honest to its basic vision? Didn’t they were fooling their party workers/volunteers and people of Delhi who voted for them.

Looks like in this party everyone is same, just like in any other party.
