This LS 2014 Elections ... will you, the voter, make a promise ?

“The AAP will make no promises to you. Instead it will ask you to make a promise. This time you will not cast your vote on the basis of kinship. You will forget caste; you will drive away the distributors of alcohol and money. AAP has not come to ask you for your vote. If there is anything we ask of you, it is to have faith in yourselves; and to listen to the voice of your soul. This election is not about the victory or defeat of political parties; it is about victory or defeat within ourselves. In front of the voting machine, we must think of the future of our children, the future of our city and our dreams for the future of our country.” Short link

In appreciation of AK

Sajjid Mitha says:

He's been in office a little over three weeks. He's a serious kid with no political experience but a will to fight the system. He thinks out of the box and many of his actions may seem unconventional. But rather than ridicule him I for one salute this man who has balls of steel and a true vision for a better India. For once I sincerely hope the educated elite embrace the vision of the Aam aadmi as far as political governance is concerned. India needs Kejriwal to flush out everything that is wrong in the system for neither you nor I are likely to do it.

For the first time post independence the Aam aadmi has one more thing in his heart other than faith and prayer. He has a very real hope that his children may just have an opportunity to have a relatively honest government in power. How easy it is to criticize and so difficult to appreciate. We constantly ridicule the system and when some brave heart emerges we waste no time in bashing him. I prefer to play the 'wait and watch' game and embrace the Aam aadmi's thought process of hope for a better India.
