PROP-UP SICK-OFFENCEy ON STILTS
Will the new dispensation in Delhi filled
to it's edentulous gills with so many faithful fogeys do any good for the 'unwashed masses' of India?
Or do anything to
move a millim forward on the INDO-PAK BORDER?
OR MAKE A NAVARATNA OF SAARC where the
ninesome of the true sub-continent can get together: viz:
India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka,
Maldives, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan and Burma, or even a decade after?
VERY VERY DOUBTFUL.
BUT I AM WILLING
TO BE SURPRISED.
Foreign office fogeys who spent a lifetime
in the cold war era of frozen fundas, will not thaw into the new warmth of reality.
If someone could not do something in
THIRTY FIVE YEARS then it would be well nigh impossible to turn a new leaf on a sycophantic prop up stilt of sick-offency.
J.N.DIXIT just before taking over as
NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR or rather on the dawn of taking over has done a NOW, SONIA IS SHINING serenade which amonngst
other fudges with HINDSIGHT had one glaring unbelievable thrust sticking like a stilleto into the throat of dismay!
says Sonia egged on by her advisers urged Rahul to contest from Amethi much against her democratic inclinations and pushed
Priyanka to campaign for the party!
It is not gone a lunar month since the
elections have bitten the dust and it is still fresh in public memory how THE FAMILY went on and on about: 'IN MY FAMILY'
this that and the other.
The matter of most unstated but most
obvious relevance is that the ESTATE OF THE CONGRESS PARTY IS FIRMLY ENTAILED TO THE FIRM THAT IS 'THE FAMILY' whose doormat
it has become with time come and made to come back through a backdoor entry exit shown to elected president Kesri.
THE GIST OF THE MATTER is that THE FAMILY
sat down together and decided RAHUL WILL CONTEST AMETHI AND MOMMA WILL MOVE TO RAE BARELI. And more verbatimly,
'In MY FAMILY we make our own decisions.'
SEE NOBODY CAN OR WILL PERSUADE ANOTHER!
THE WHOLE LOT OF WAILING CONGRESSWALLAHS
COULDN'T MOVE MADE UP OWN MIND SONIA ONE MILLIM!
AFTER TWO HOURS ENDURANCE RACE AGAINST
THE BATHETIC DISPLAY PUT OUT ON NATIONALLY TELEVISED PRIVATE 'INNER PARTY DE-LIBERATIONS!'
So how come J N DIXIT GOT IT SO WRONG?
PUBLIC MEMORY IS SHORT BUT THAT SHORT?
Priyanka on interview outside the CPP
to which she went along with pati although neither was an elected member of neither the CPP nor the Parliament that was being
held in CENTRAL PARLIAMENT HALL, after being prevailed upon to prevail upon her reluctant mother said, 'ghar jane
ke baad usne apne nirnay lengi.'
SEE! WITH THIS SORT OF HIGH-RANKING
OFFICIALS already fudging so effortless CAN SECURITY BE SAFE IN FOREING-OFFICE HANDS?
Brajesh Misra then and J N DIXIT now
from the same services which has had nothing to do with SECURITY and that when they can't even go yakkity yak with ease with
most nations but will ponder and chew over the cud and cuddle over every word going clique-tic-Y CLICK so how can SECURITY
WHICH IS A FAST MOVING CHANGE OF ACTION SCENE be strategically thrust into these hands.
AND EVEN MORE BANALLY HOW CAN SO MANY
BRAHMINS GET INTO THE SAME SLOTS [LIKE THE SUB ROSA ORDER OR THE FREEMASONS OR THE OLD SCHOOLBOY TIE NETWORK AND SO ON]
GET TO RUN THE BRAHMIN NETWORK INTO KINGDOOM COME?
These are valid questions and nobody
need expect anything from this new dispensation that is a reHASH of old loyalties.
But in a situation where a grand total
of 145 is being made out to be BIG VERDICT FOR A CONGRESSIONAL BENEDICTION where the previous elected president Kesri managed
to haul in 141 ON A SINGLE PARTY plank and if we take out MOMMA AND SONNY FROM FAMILY BORROUGHS then that gives it a GRAND
TOTAL OF TWO with all those allies thrown in to which this ancient party owes all it's accretions but is now relieving of
The need for so many bureaucrats long
past their sell by dates is that they kow how to kow tow and stand stolidly behind without making faces behind the back!
A lifetime of encrusted habits will not be swept away by the FEVICOL in the kursi if anything they will be reinforced to be
'seated' more firmly and they know how to 'get around and the system' by not letting 'the system' move a millim away!
'Work expands so as to fill the time
available for it's completion,' as was authenticated and not merely prophesied in the LAW OF PARKINSON!
So till 'THE COMING' till will
AND INDIA WILL BE AGEING IN THE INTERIM OF INTERMINABLE WAITING!
Political TALENT SCOUTING like the one
that threw up a P A SANGA, A MAMATA BANERJEE, A MAYAWATI when they were young has gone a-begging.
BIG BUCK BRATPACK OF FAMILY AND RETINUE
AND RETAINERS however young and handsome cannot reward what the system lacks: PURE RAW POLITICAL TALENT!
THAT THESE ANCIENT RELICS FROM THE BUREAUCRACY
CANNOT BE EXPECTED TO BUCK THE TREND SO LATE IN THE ENCRUSTED DAY!
so it will be more of the same old saga
and song. SAIGAL SINGING SADLY!
AND WHAT'S WORSE NOT AS SAIGAL DID WELL BUT BADLY.
PLUS CA CHANGE, PLUS C'EST LA MEME
SO with so many YES MA'AM, NO MA'AM,
THREE BAG FULL MA'AM!' retired civil sorts clambering the totem pole it is only as someone said:
'NONSENSE ON STILTS'.
UNLESS AND UNTIL MANMOHAN SINGH CAN BE
HIS OWN MAN AND MAN HIS OWN CABINET IT IS ANOTHER CARAVAN INTO THE DUSK OF NON-EVENT!
'Think, in this batter'd Caravanserai
Doorways are alternate Night and Day,
How Sultan after Sultasn with his Pomp
Abode his Hour or two, and went away.'
