Great Indian Pari’war’

Indian sub-continent has always been a land of wars and the greatest among them was the Mahabharath war which took place about 5000 years ago. Since then there have been continuous wars going on literally and figuratively in all spheres of Indian life. Indian civilization has progressed to its current level after several setbacks and watermarks thanks to these wars. Wars need not always be destructive; instead some of the wars have resulted in quantum jumps in terms of ideology and development.

India is going to witness yet another great electoral war in 2014. On one side we have the Nehru Pariwar led by the doubtful Rahul Gandhi. And against them, we have the great Indian Sangh Pariwar led by the redoubtable Narendra Modi. Then there is the miniscule and insignificant fringe elements who have always remained marginalized in Indian democracy. Let us see a brief comparison between the Kaurava and Pandava forces of 21st century in India:-

Nehru Pariwar
Sangh Pariwar
Rule by Nehru Family
Democracy (Rama Rajya)
Creation of Vote Banks
Uniform Civil Code for all Indians
Not defined
Integral Humanism
Anti-Hindu and Minority appeasement
Hindu Rashtra with equal rights for all Indians
Basic essential objective
Retain ruling power with Nehru Pariwar at all times
Greatness and glory of Indian nation

The sharp contrast between the two forces in the electoral battlefield is crystal clear. But it is not so obvious whether the vast Indian Majority who will decide the fate of Indian nation would think for themselves before voting. Indians are by nature unselfish and careless when it comes to elections. And there are many Indian pseudo-intellectuals who consider it a crime if the Majority comes to power in a democracy. Let us wait and see what the future holds for India.
