Rebranding The Political Parties – Positive Zeitgeist

Today, major successful avenues are endorsed by various brands. Every avenue, in itself, is composed of individual brands. In India, we have policy of popular nationalism. This identity is popularly endorsed by many fields, be it information technology, industries, and literature. Sports, media and Bollywood are major players when it comes to zeitgeist

Currently due to election scenario, Mr. Narendra Modi is the highest search personality on major search engines and among top hashtags on social media. No matter how much effort we put to delineate his personality from past issues and controversial Hinduism topics, we end up with our eyebrows arched. Yashwant Singh exclusion from BJP and filing as independent candidate from Barmer in Rajasthan also points out another interesting fact. Most of the mature dignified BJP personalities are taking backseat because of Mr. Narendra Modi. This is not true.

When we monitor the mood of the public, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal from AAP rules the roost at Delhi due to take on corruption. Mr. Rahul Gandhi has lost the steam of the elections due to India Shining promises which did not gel with the young and old. Even if there are two major theories here, of corruption and of ideological history, we are unaware of the bundled emotions. We usually rant out at social media when a train derails killing around 100 people or when an epidemic breaks out.

Do we not confuse our fears under the same umbrella? Do we ask for political debate on women security being aware about sexual assaults? Do we review the standing of a leader when the opportunity arrived on a concerned matter?

I strongly suggest that the branding should not be limited to one major political personality. To represent a prime ministerial candidate, various candidates at state and union territories should provide their views on different issues. Sushma Swaraj has been my favorite for many past years for being vocal on many important issues in the parliament. I wish even if she may file for a seat but could have marvelously represented BJP online at Twitter and Facebook. It would have nurtured confidence among Indian women. Though as we do not want to respread the culture of popular identities, one can always points at election time how things are going to work with different sub divisions in action.

Similarly, for every fact pointing out the major candidate, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal or Mr. Narendra Modi is not right. Current ruling government has benefits because we attach significance how the different leaders contributed to overall development. The role of P. Chidambaram or A.K. Anthony cannot be neglected. The overall progress defines the major change. The corruption and scams have greatly affected the notion of India shining.

The new players in the current election if make use of the strong personalities in their parties can make the debate interesting and lead to positive zeitgeist.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…

Least Minimal Good for Better Future

We are out, now. In places, all over city, or country. We often notice when we are outside, how civic amenities are making life feasible. Five years back, it was not the case. There were definite office and public hours. Mobiles made communication possible, yet services were limited. One could not get proper bedding and food at hotels.

Even now, some most popular tourist spots have poor accommodation infrastructure. If the weather would unpredictable, we were often stranded in traffic. Some travel spots were limited to boys/men only. Transport was not superior as now when we can hire a cab to any location.

When the time has changed now, don't we find ourselves pointing out faults in people, system and places. Sometimes pinches us, like sight of garbage, movement of animals, display of election campaigns and ads.

I concur nothing can change by our will but we can change a little that can help inculcate our attitude and expectations from others.

We should contribute a little towards ge…
