How Indian politics has ruined the country for the last seven decades

Also Read

A country marred by confusion between who’s who and what’s where, an idea of political think tank that could lead the country into some constructive direction is a far cry, and in the recent years, it has become a luxury that cannot be afforded by nation impoverished of statesmanship sentiments.

India stands on a difficult juncture where she must match her aspirations of pursuing her goals of prosperity and achieving an uphill task of instilling a feeling of harmony among her inhabitants, currently standing directly on the fault lines drawn on the basis of region, religion, language, caste, sects, etc.

Believe it or not, the blame for the shortcomings can directly be attributed to current prevalent political activism, inherited and being perpetuated since last 7 decades. We have to win over the conditions, is a common rhetoric promulgated by the politicians all across the country.

But, their rhetoric has seldom been focused on a narrative that could mean promoting national interests. A common hinge they have resorted to is secularism, but is secularism really a narrative that needs to be taught in a pluralistic society?

Comparing even with the failed neighboring state, Indian political set-up is a minnow when it comes to forming a credible policy to counter the problems this country is facing now in form of foreign threats.

In most of the last 7 decades, India has always lived on the fringe and Indians just by chance. It is just because of the politicians who did not have any know-how as to how to form a policy to run the government since the reins of the political parties has remained in the hands of those who know how to form coalitions to form the government and enjoy the privileges.

When it comes to fighting elections on a narrative of bringing around a change in the condition in the country, and swearing against certain class of parties; calling them names; and labeling them corrupt on certain grounds, and later forming government with the same parties in name of saving the tenets of democracy from crashing down.

They, in the name of democracy, are saved, but the dreams of common Indians, lost in the humdrum of daily consumptions, come crashing down. Slowly and soundly we have become a nation of losers. Giving in to dubious people, in name of political set-up, on certain non-essential sops and fascinating, only dreamt about, but non-existent intangible benefits.

The jargon commonly used for misleading now so otherwise simpleton Indians is the tenets of what we term as a modern definition of plurality and co-existence. Surprisingly enough, a majority of Indians are gullible enough to accept those, only for winning election slogans, as essential and tend to forget the real critical issues that should have been on a top priority for us.

Looking around in the neighborhood, Indians have become used to eyeing failure and losing out to rivals even after staring well. CPEC in Pakistan is a good example of this lost ground, where India let the opportunity slip out of its hand. Pakistan is using Indian territory – disputed internationally too – for its own purpose. Indians could have scored a diplomatic victory over their arch rivals, but the former government let the opportunity slip out of its hands deliberately.

Today, we are all well aware that this project is running and in fact kicking well, and it has attracted a lot of attention internationally, with even the staunch allies of India, like Russia expressing their willingness to participate in this initiative, Pakistan has scored not only a winner, but also ensured that if Indian forces attack this territory they would be drawing a flak from international community, especially powerful military rebuttal from the Chinese.

Would now India dare to make a move? No, we lack think tank to draw deep conclusions because we have more critical issues on our minds; who would rule for next five years and how much bounty we would get from the pre-poll sops.
