Indian Democracy at Cross-roads Part-10: WIIFM Model

Voters’ enthusiasm could be seen as quite a large number of voters queued up at the voting booths in township Moodubelle and its cluster village centres. The Belle GP President predicted above 80% of registered voters to exercise their franchise. If the prediction becomes a reality, it would be a testimony to the political awareness and commitment to democratic process of citizens living in Belle Grama.

Democracy at Crossroad 9: A New Gallery of Brave Models

Would a dark horse, please explain to us, a model that will work for us? Who is the messiah? I asked as I closed chapter 8 of the special election series. Majority of my readers thought Arvind Kejriwal has the messianic potential. The staunchest INC loyalist but a committed supporter of Anna Hazare, advocate Benedict Noronha vehemently disagreed with the majority view. He advised the young not to run around crazy Kejriwal who has lost the company of Kiran Bedi and other anti-corruption fighters. Kejriwal will be one month leader, he further said.

Democracy at Crossroad 8: Rahul and Modi Models

Modi and Rahul came to Mangalore. Their scripts were packed with barbs against each other plus a few tall promises. Their speech-writers are, oh so, boring, to say the least. People think their parties belong to opposite poles and therefore must be different. How wrong we are. When do people and parties become different? When they do different things or do same thing differently? Can we spot a difference in these two approaches in doing things? Pause here, think, storm your brain and proceed further when the answer acceptable to you is found.. [By Philip Mudartha]

Indian Democracy at Cross-roads 7: Indira Gandhi’s Conflict with Congress Veterans that led to the First Split in the Congress

As I had mentioned at the end of the last installment of ‘Indian Democracy at Cross-roads 5’, the echo of Narendra Modi’s attempt to consolidate his hold over the party and prime ministerial claim by sidetracking BJP veteran leaders can be found in the pages of history when Mrs. Indira Gandhi in her endeavour to gain preeminent position in the Congress had a running feud with Congress veteran leaders of the time which eventually led to the first major split in the INC.

I suggested going to Vadodara by car. But my American friend won’t trust Indian roads. He is scared of ending up in a body bag. We mutual consent, we take 12009/Mumbai Central- Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express. The 393 Km trip to Vadodara junction took 5 hours.We left and arrived on schedule and in very good shape. In fact, it is among one of the best train journeys I have undertaken in India. Namo brigades may claim credit for both comfort and punctuality of the train.. [By Philip Mudartha]

Indian Democracy at Cross-roads 5: Narendra Modi clears way for him by sidetracking BJP Veterans

Narendra Modi did not hide his intention of bypassing veteran leaders of his party, either at the state or national level in an attempt to consolidate his hold over the government in Gujarat and his endeavour to form the next government at Delhi.In Gujarat, veteran BJP leaders such as Kesubhai Patel whom Modi succeeded as the Chief Minister of the state in 2001 following the fallout from the January earthquake that killed around 20,000 people, were forced to go into oblivion. Since then , Modi went on consolidating his position on the state machinery and party for the last fourteen years.. [By Dr Eugene DSouza]

Indian Democracy at Cross-roads : Modi: Worrying signs of a one-man show

What has been feared about Narendra Modi is proving to be true. The rough-and-ready manner in which he has been imposing his writ on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) may refurbish his image of being a "strong" leader, but it also highlights his Gujarat "model" of authoritarian governance, which may be a cause of concern both inside and outside the BJP.As is known, his presence at the helm of the government in Gujarat has put everyone else there in deep shadow. Few outside the state know the names of other ministers or even of the party chief. It is this outlook of a lord and master which can be seen in the selection of the party nominees for the general election.

Indian democracy at crossroads 3 concludes: ….coalition governments could never be stable as history had proved. In the light of these historical facts, other than NDA or UPA coalitions the talk of any Third or Alternate Front would be an experiment in futile ….What is stability? The above stated conclusion implies political stability. Political stability is important. But, more important is governance stability, which manifests in advancement of a nation in measureable performance indicators. What are these performance indicators?

Indian Democracy at Cross-roads 3: Experiment in Coalition Politics-Rise and Fall of the Janata Government

As the country is in the election mode and there is much speculation about the emergence of the Third Front of Alternate Front, it would be appropriate to recall the first experiment in the coalition government that India had experienced between 1977 and 1979 following the much maligned ‘Emergency’ period from 1975 to 1977. This coalition government was an outcome of the anger of the people and opposition political leaders against the ‘excesses’.. [By Dr Eugene DSouza]
