India ko ab Modi ‘chai’ ye!

May 19, 2014

Narendra Modi cartoon

He came, he namaste-ed, he conquered. Narendra Modi is all set to become the first Indian Prime Minister in 30 years who need not dance to the tune of petulant allies, nor be controlled by ‘remote’ by a power-behind-the-throne. All Indians, whether they voted for him or not, have high expectations  from our new PM. Will his 56-inch-chest thumping translate into practical benefits for all Indians, vikas and parivartan all around, and India Shining once more? Are happy days really here again? Only one thing is sure: 5 years later, there can be no excuses for failure. We wish our new PM all the best.

Meanwhile, has the Gandhi family been washed away by the Modi wave? Is this (fingers crossed!) the end of dynastic politics in India? Sadly, if these news articles are to be believed, far from it. Sigh. Some things never change.

As for a certain Gandhi-topi-ed gentleman… AAP ka kya hoga, janabeyaali, AAP ka kya hoga?

    Things should change at grassroots level and a single person cannot change everything though he is the PM of a country.Only if mindsets change, can development in it’s true sense may take place.As for me, I wish Modi does something about the state of cleanliness in our country.

    Let’s wait, watch and then decide. Wishing the new PM good luck and best wishes. Hope he is able to deliver the goods.

    This is the first time the country has moved away from dynastic politics, I hope with the majority modi has today, he moves away from partisan politics.
