I found this piece in the comments section of Rajeev Srinivasans' blog. It makes lot of sense. He raises some valid points.
Just thought it would reach some more people if I put it here.
Thank you ACD:
Last general elections we saw pure arithmatics of local level & state level politics, uprooting a well-functioning & effective NDA government at the centre.
His suggestion that we need a Presidential form of government is more then welcome at this juncture.
Vajpayee would have definitely won over Sonia if that were the case.
Media in the country has strategically positioned itself with Congress & Left.
Another thing is BJP supporters are'nt as vocal & extrovert.Specially those from art & movie industry.
Movies are a religion for a very large section of Indian society.
People like Mahesh Bhatt,Shabana Azmi,Javed Akhtar & other page 3 celebrities are very vocal & shrill on their anti-BJP rhetoric.
And they have gathered lot of public attention owing to their impromptu outbursts.
Most educated Indians watch TV, read newspapers, watch cinemas etc etc. Very few actually sit back & analyse a news item.
Most of them believe & digest what they see or hear.
Hence Shabana Azmi becomes a messiah of poor by one slogan & Mahesh Bhatt becomes an intellect after one press conference.
With Media,Art and Movie sections of the country all against Hindus,
and Hindus concentrating only on the technical & science fields, we are loosing ground to secularists faster then one can imagine.
Just a casual look across the spectrum of people in journalism & entertainment gives a dismal picture of Hindu representation in these mediums.
And movies are a very effective way of reaching to people.
There have been hundreds of documentaries on RSS & it's activities from the secular cohorts, debunking the most nationalist of organisations. Or for that matter on gujarat riots.
How many from the so called intellect directors bothered to focus on Sikh killings or Bhagalpur killings?
We are seeing a near total squeezing out of Hindus from the most visible sections of society, namely Media & Entertainment.
What's worse is that an entire generation has been intoxicated by a heavy dose of MTV & Valentine's day.
This generation which is most likely to vote in next general elections has already been brain-washed into anti-BJPism.
It does not relate to BJP.
BJP has got the best products. But there are no buyers. Desh-Bhakti is a NO-No for gen-next.
We are likely to see Rahul G as our next PM.
A non-graduate dumbo, who excelled in annual display of non-Indian girlfriends. But what matters is he's got looks, money & power. And all without hard-work & and absolutely undeservingly.
That's what the youth is looking for. Power without responsibility. Money without hard-work.
There'a nothing more attractive for today's youth then fast-money.
And RG represents everything of that.
