As I see it, and the way the political parties and media, including social media is painting the picture, we as a nation are split divided in two…. No, not as Bharat and India, the concept veteran parliamentarian, Hukam Dev Yadav often puts forth in his parliamentary speeches, nor on the lines of Poor-Rich, Hindu-Muslim, Backwards-Forwards or Male-Female either. We the people, are split as a nation of Pro-Modi & Anti-Modi citizens.

The situation is very grave, and trust me, the resultant situations has created chaos in the society, to the extent that the centuries old element of trust is being challenged in every sphere of life today. There are Pro-Modi people who believe everything good either happens because of Modi or Modi is capable of doing anything, be it be the case of their escaping unhurt in a road accident or sheer faith that Modi will be capable to reverse the process of baldness, by the time they reach the age of getting bald. On the other hand are Anti-Modi people, who are convinced that for their every misery or trouble, Modi is responsible, fair and square. They know for sure that their child failed in his class test, or for the incessant rains this year, only person responsible is Modi.

Going by these trends, and unceasing hype in political and journalistic circles, with inputs from academia coming in from time to time, the intellect of country, like me, foresee far-reaching impact and consequence of this divided nation scenario. Let me elaborate further, on the possible consequence and the manner in which they will affect our life.

We may soon see matrimonial advertisement saying, “Wanted a suitable match for Punjabi Khatri beautiful, fair, homely girl aged 28 years, working in MNC with five figure salary. Caste, Religion, Occupation of groom no bar. Being Anti-Modi essential”.

The job vacancy advertisement may read as, “Wanted a computer operator for a private limited company. Salary best in industry with standard perks as HRA, PF, and Conveyance etc. Must be graduate with exceptional capability to coin two Pro-Modi slogans every day.”

The prospective landlords may insist on Facebook & Twitter verification along with police verification, to establish the true credentials of prospective tenants if they are Anti-Modi or Pro-Modi. Same may be the case while employing a domestic help or a driver. “Aaj kal acchi Anti-Modi kaamwali bai milti kahan hai” may soon be the topic of discussion in kitty party circles. The fall out may spread like virus and impact small businesses across the nation. I can foresee a day when we will prefer buying vegetables or kiryana from the neighbourhood sabjiwallah or lala who subscribes to our line of Modi-Thought.

The branded goods too may start coming in two variants. ‘100% Anti-Modi’ or ‘Assured Pro-Modi’ may soon be new buzz words in the ad-world. TV advertisements divided on these lines, may force popular channels to launch sister channel, and both channels being promoted separately. For Anti-Modi Big Boss watch channel 357, for Pro-Modi Big Boss switch to 359, same like we have different language commentary on sports channels for same match. Even newspapers may give up words like city edition, late city edition and settle for anti-modi and pro-modi editions instead.

I fear the day when, I’ll have to change my barber, my milk-man, and my gardener cause they were on wrong side of Modi-ism. I know the Modi-ism effect may develop into Modi-Syndrome one day so I have started requesting my readers and followers on Facebook to give me a blue like if they are Anti-Modi and a red heart if Pro-Modi. So guys, It’s time to go ahead and define oneself in this split nation.
