Quantity is a Political Stalemate

Before elections, the mandate was strong in the favor of AAP. Congress was in total jeopardy because of scams and corruption charges. However, given the history the trend in the favor of each party was quite neutral with wave of indecision among Indians and also of circumstantial judgement under the aegis of AAP. Within course of months, NDA launched a powerful campaign and with nationwide state visits and speeches both led by Mr. Narendra Modi, prime ministerial candidate from BJP and the state representatives surged the victory in their direction.  The results were astonishing giving popular mandate to BJP.

In the sprawling grounds of Rashtrapati Bhawan, Mr. Narendra Modi along with 46 ministers took oath opening a new chapter in the history of Indian democracy. Our 15th prime minister has already talked to Pakistan counterpart Nawaj Sharif and the good wishes have arrived from the leaders worldwide. With small cabinet strength of 46 ministers, it is still a surprise how Mr. Modi visualized the future of this large democracy. Quality one says is better than quantity. If an opposition can strongly represent to the confused masses their ideas about the promising future in little time and perhaps, it is quite possible.

It may also be possible that BJP has been swept into the tide of this moment. Strong leadership has been demonstrated by few BJP leaders. Most of the faces are still nonexistent to a common citizen. Besides Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj, Nitin Gadkari, Uma Bharti and few others, it is hard to recognize their earlier contribution.

With high demand to develop human resources, infrastructure and fight corruption simultaneously, quality leaders do matter but can they be able to take hold of the demands and controversies. Sometimes, quantity is not about performing.

At a time a number of issues can digress from the main objective and whilst some intermediate issues become important too. Hopefully, Mr. Modi must have drawn a hierarchy to watch these stumbling blocks. Presently, we should wish our new prime minister and ministers all the best for the new beginnings and promise our support and contribution for a better India.

Jai Hind.

Echoes, my new poetry book

Echoes published by Write India is recently released in September.  It has been an amazing experience to through them once again and truly as desired they echo through mind and soul.

Here is blurb at back of book:

Consistency where life frames women in different roles and you feel inhabited.

In such serenity I sit and think saturated with thoughts.  A woman speaking of in her element perennially devises how way further will be for her without the barriers of struggle.  Nature is succour.  One easily connects with primal action born of thought. As innate as vital energy of mind and body, the poems here touch aspects of womanhood subliminally.

It would not be in woods or meadows far reaching only through echoes, it would beat deep inside throbbing and touching through aspects of life.

A Poem from Echoes:

Cold winds with those dark clouds
on my sky are my aspirations
where horizon of blue sublime,
tiny corpuscles of lime,
from where I have sprung and this haste
do I even know the melody…

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.

नदी के किनारे

एक  पत्थर  भी अगर पानी पर मारो
तो आवाज  होती हैं
पत्थर  मारना  कोई गलती नहीं होती
नदी के छोर  अक्सर तह  होते हैं
मगर पानी के बहाव सा कैसे बहे

कैसे उसकी लहारो में लेहरती  किरणो को पिरोयू
कैसे उसकी गहराहीयो को पहचानु
कैसे ना डरू उसके बहाव से
लगातार छुट्ते किनारे इस आज़ादी से

कभी आवनमना ना करना यही सिखा है
मगर जब संगीत बन जाता है
उस पार जाती हुई ये नदी
तो क्या मै केवल एक क्षण बन कर रह जाऊ
उसके किनारो पर|
