But, is it nothing to know when you are dying, when you are about to take leave of this world, of its joys and sorrows, when the past of your life is unfurled before you, when eternity opens wide its portals, is it nothing to know at that last awful,supreme moment of your lives, that you have not lived in vain, that you have lived for the benefit of others, that you have lived to help in the cause of your country's regeneration?

Alright,so the curtains have almost risen..and the UPA is back with a bang proving them invincible..It definitely was a pathetic performance by the BJP especially when they had 5 long years to reach into the people..

But i guess,the parliament is gonna be a getto for the Gandhi family with all those family members getting elected!!

All the while,i totally rejoice at the shameful failure of the Left at West Bengal(not to mention Kerala),coz it had been their fort all these years fitting themselves into the cloud beyond the democratic process..At least we proved once again that everyone is bound to respect the prudence of the electorate(reminds me of Indira Gandhi and her failure after the Emergency)..

Despite all the hullabaloo of the Orissa riots,BJD still rankles at power,although ostensibly coz of the heave-ho given to the BJP..
Nithish and Modi sweeps their respective mandate!And these politicians at last realize that our political savvy is not for sale and efficient administration will no longer be left oblivious of!

Also,the way mafia don Mayawati was thrashed was just superb(of course not personally,but her monopoly has at least diminished)!Gotto see how many of those f***ing criminals got into power this time!
I did wish Chidambaram won,but it was just a hope hopen,or so i thought,until when he won in the recounting..

I dislike Manmohan Singh in all the reverential tone for his brains coz he is not a representative of the people..He gets into power through the back door(just like Shivraj Patil who stung to power for about 4.5yrs without having cleared a loksabha election! )..In spite of all that i wish him best of luck to take decisions without having to turn to Mrs.Gandhi everytime..

The most remarkable aspect about this elections is that 1)The already existent govt is empowered to carry on whatever developmental process was in the offing, 2)A particular alliance scoring least majority implies they become least dependent on all those parasitic mushrooms..

I wish UPA becomes free from blindly worshiping the Nehru family though,.it simply disrupts the democratic set up and reverts to dynastic succession!

With all the due respect and accolades to the chosen alliance,I wish them all the very best to carry out an outstanding governance..

Its the first time im turning myself a scribe in ur blog space.And yes, i chose a good one to comment upon.First of all, many congratulations to the UPA spearheaded by Dr.Manmohan Singh.Of course,the efforts put in by the matriarch,Sonia Gandhi and the emerging leader among the Congress workers,Rahul gandhi is not to be written off.The NDA,led by the BJP went to polls without prominent allies and it cost them an excellent opportunity of forming the next government.Some say the reason for BJP's failure could be the projection of Narendra Modi as the successor for LK Advani.Reasons galore one after another, but, it seems to be a total disappointment for LK Advani,for he has already offered to quit as the Leader Of Opposition after his dream of becoming India's next Prime Minster went into shambles and collapsed.For many reasons, this mandate has been historic as it has seen the rise of the ordinary Indian Citizen, who has started to think before pressing the magical button in those EVM's.But not to forget,good administration bolstered by effective leadership,inspite of party ideologies will emerge the winner is clear in the case of Narendra Modi in Gujarat,Nitish Kumar in Bihar,YSR in Andhra,etc..I share the same view as yours in case of Mayawati,Lalu and who is left..yes,its the Left which has been demolished totally in kerala and much to the surprise of many, in West Bengal where a generation and a half of a notorious red rule and domination coming to an end.Im sorry gayathri, as i used your platform to express my views on the outcome and for most of the parts, i share the same views as yours.
