Kejriwal, Your India needs you!

We were getting use to this corruption, so much so that we thought it as a necessary evil. We resigned to the rottenness of the corrupt system.  And then Kejriwal along with Anna Hazare came as a fresh mint of air. Though their partnership was short –lived, it gave us a refreshing hope that the corruption can be arrested. The hope then transformed into the dream as Arvind Kejriwal, the activist transformed to Arvind Kejriwal, the politician, after assuming the post of CM.  And when the politician tasted the success – which to my mind was bit premature – the dreams began to take the shape of reality.  Everybody thought that Kejriwal would offer a corruption free society in Delhi.  Even Kejriwal thought so, and he tried his best. Yes, he played few dramas and did few U-turns but  the intent was always to give an honest governance to Delhi. Where he failed though, was when he adopted the route of an activist while playing a political leader.  Dharna and mass assembly as the tools so well suited him when he was an activist but not when he turned CM.  Also, as a CM he had a broader range of agenda to be met and no one would have questioned him if he would have missed on few of the promises made earlier. And so his resignation, after failing to get Lokpal bill passed, too seems pre- mature. And Kejriwal will fail India more if he does not continue to work for his values which have made us optimist. At this stage when those fledgling dreams of corruption free India stand shaken yet again, India wants him more badly. He was the one who woke India from the slumber. And now he has to show her the way. India is looking up to you Mr. Kejriwal, with a hope that you will rise again like a phoenix. It is up to you to serve it, in any form – as an activist, as a politician or as category of your own.  India won’t mind any, till the time you are able to instil that hope that ‘Good times will come’. Kejriwal, Your India needs you.

  2. I find this odd coming from a person who wants a “decisive” Narendra Modi at the helm. All the modi supporters seem to think that kejriwal is deranged, i am slightly surprised to see that you don’t think so.
    Kejriwal is the opposition’s best bet against modi. he has the personality, the track record of standing up against corruption and has the necessary demagoguery that indians in general and modi-backers in particular, like.
    Not sure whether India needs Kejriwal, but if it can stop the 50 inch chest thumping, rehtoric spewing, megalomaniac that is mod, then why not.
    Besides, I just can not picture modi winning enough seats in Bihar, UP and Karnataka, the decider states in most general elections in the past.

    • I am equally surprised to see u commenting. At last you read it. I hope u have read few other posts too… Now for Kejriwal I definitely admire him as an activist. He could have been a fresh alternative to Modi and Gandhi in politics too. I don’t find him deranged but heretical to uncomfortable levels. And for Modi do we have an alternative in the current situation.
