Cartoon on Pathankot Terrorist attack
As the dates of U.P. elections are nearing by , the more is louding up the “Trumpets of the Elephants”(BSP), “the Rings of the Cycle Bells”(SP),”the Claps of the Hands”(Congress) and the Beauty and “Incense of the Lotus flower”(BJP).
Reminders of developments (so what ? if just the parks and the statues ) by the ruling party is getting louder.
Other contesting parties also recall the surprise visits , they (their leader) made by suddenly barging into farmers house(of course with the media) for dinner and pretending to be disghusted with the present conditions of the farmers( as if , if they win, will give bungalows to the farmers ).
And some would not talk what they did and what others did not but directly come to the point that if they win the elections, what gifts can the citizens expect.
The embarassing fact about Political Elections in our country is, we are made to choose between the Bad, Worse and the Worst and once we select best of the lott, it is the Bad Party which turns Worst and the cycle goes on!

A ” Marathi Manus” who is an Indian, first.
Anna Hazare , the synonym to Anti- Corruption Movements in India may be viewed with different perceptions in and out of India however there is no denying to one fact that it is because of him India seems to be united again. There is hardly any bar of religion, sex, state and caste supporting his cause. Be it North Indians, South Indians, North-Eastern Indians or Non-Resident Indians, after a longtime there seems to be a leader who has made Indians forget the difference of state, religion and caste to a great extent. While some find him politically motivated supporting Anti-Congress Political Parties, most seem to be die-hard fans of him.
There has only been discrimination between commoners (sufferers) and the politicians and bureaucrats in India due to him. While it would be unfair to claim all politicians inIndia are corrupt but there is no denying that most of them are. May be, some do not loot us, off our hard-earned money which we pay as taxes but surely they stoop down to all levels to gain political superiority. Even the most decent of Indian politicians are mostly involved in provoking communal discomfort in the areas of their dominance and popularity.
Congress which claims to be secular keeps pointing out how much they are bothered about the minorities of India and that’s how they divide us. There are other parties who show sympathy towards specific religions,castes and specific language-speaking citizens (regional political parties). Point is simple, corrupt are those too who in some way or the other differentiate between Indians by showing sympathy on the basis of religion, state and caste.
Well, Anna Hazare may or may not be politically motivated but surely he is a reason who made every Indian realize, he/she is an Indian first who is being continuously befooled by opportunist and/or corrupt bureaucrats and politicians of the country. Thanks to Maharashtra which has political parties like Shiv Sena and MNS who do not miss any chance to discriminate between Marathis and non-Marathis (hence divide Indians for political gains) has produced Anna Hazare who has given India a reason to turn deaf-ears to the communal and racists in the country.
