Indira, who is dressed in a khadi garment, is following Gandhi's advocacy that khadi be worn by all Indians instead of British-made textiles Indira was mostly taught at home by tutors, and intermittently attended school until matriculation in It was during her interview that Rabindranath Tagore named her Priyadarshini, and she came to be known as Indira Priyadarshini Nehru.
I can understand a party making promises, even tall ones, to garner votes but does it have to surrender its core values and compete with a party which cannot distinguish between the myth and the reality? Mind you, it is not because of your silly manifesto but because of the intense desire of the voters to get rid of a party under whose dispensation anyone who tried to expose the Vyapam scandal had been getting eliminated.
I understand that you were uncomfortable with some of the promises mentioned in the manifesto and that was why you refused to share the dais with the big three that day. Alas, you being the head of the Congress cannot absolve yourself of the responsibility of the scare the manifesto has created among a large section of the people who believe in the concept of unity in diversity and see the Statue of Unity as a wasteful extravaganza which makes the nation a laughing stock.
After every defeat, one standard claim made by the Congress leaders is that they would learn from their mistakes and take appropriate measures not to repeat them in the next election.
In the last Gujarat assembly elections, the BJP virtually snatched victory from the jaws of the Congress. You were the star campaigner of the Congress but do you know what I remember most about your campaigning? It is not what you said in Gujarat but your visits to various temples in the state.
I trust in your word that you are a devotee of Lord Shiva. It is perfectly fine to be a believer like it was perfectly fine to be an agnostic like your great-grandfather. No doubt, faith sustains people. But he did not wear his religion on his arm as you did in Gujarat.
When Narendra Modi found that he was no more invincible, he unleashed his communal card and drove you and your party to a corner.
You should have realised that communalism can be countered only by secularism, not by a softer version of the same. When a party says that it would break the head of the Muslims and the Christians, you cannot get votes by promising to break only their limbs.
I am sorry if I sound a little crude. Sometimes one has to be blunt. Take the case of the stance your party has taken on the Sabarimala issue. Are your party men any different from those obscurantist forces who assembled at the Kochi airport to prevent a woman from going to Sabarimala?
Would the heavens have fallen if she visited Sabarimala like the countless, faithless people who go there clean-shaven like your Hindi-speaking Ramesh Chennithala?
What does the party want the government to do? That it should allow the thugs to determine whether a woman is 49 or 50 or a girl is 9 or Is not your party like the RSS which welcomed the Supreme Court verdict and, then, turned against it in the hope of getting some votes?
Rahulji, you cannot be a hound and a hare at the same time. Either you hunt with the hound or be hunted with the hare. People respect those who stand for principles, not petty gains. There is one famous picture of your great-grandfather who raised a lathi against those who tried to attack Muslims in the wake of the Partition.
It must be said to his eternal credit that he never compromised with the kind of people who could attack a year-old woman who they thought had not reached menopause. In my younger days, there was a weekly magazine called Blitz, which carried a sizzling, sexy picture and a monthly magazine called Debonair that provided voyeuristic delights like the Playboy, whose proprietor built up a vast business empire in the US.
Now, who would buy a magazine to see a semi-clad woman when hardcore porn can be accessed at the click of a button? The point is who wants your Soft Hindutva when Hard Hindutva is freely available through government institutions?
True, she did not promote any soft Hindutva but she began to visit charlatans who masqueraded as monks. She allowed herself to be kicked by a sadhu as if the kick would transport her to heaven.
People like me wondered what had happened to the scientific temperament that the Constitution had enjoined upon her to promote. Ultimately, Indira Gandhi paid a price for hobnobbing with the Frankensteins in Punjab. I give full credit to Rajiv Gandhi for ushering in the telecommunication and computer revolutions but he made the cardinal mistake of hobnobbing with communal forces.
He had no business to undo the Supreme Court verdict that granted alimony to a poor Muslim woman.Raj Ghat is a memorial dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi, benjaminpohle.comally it was the name of a historic ghat of Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad).Close to it, and east of Daryaganj was Raj Ghat Gate of the walled city, opening at Raj Ghat to the west bank of the Yamuna River.
