Win!



Reigning champion Apollo Creed is scheduled for a fight on the 200th anniversary of American Independence (1976) and his challenger withdraws with injury or illness. He seeks to make a spectacle by offering a local Philadelphia boxer a surprise title fight. Rocky Balboa is not a very brainy man. He’s the local boxing aspirant who works for the mafia loan-shark as a money-collector. As fate would have it Rocky is picked by Creed for the fight. It ends in a points-victory for Creed. Afraid the public thought the fight was a draw Creed challenges Rocky to another bout. Doctors find Rocky with head damage and his wife doesn’t want him to fight anymore. Sometime later she delivers a baby and, unfortunately, goes into a coma. The dumb Rocky reads his wife stories and does the only other thing he can; pray. He wants to be a fighter but his wife doesn’t want him to risk more brain damage. Rocky promises to be a family man and not fight anymore. Days later his wife wakes up from coma. She knows what Rocky wants in his heart and says just one word. Watch the video (0.47 mins):

WIN!

Rocky regains his spirits and finally wins. The media and some parties have been fooling people with the idea that ours is a British-type parliamentary system and not a US presidential election, therefore MPs elect the PM. That is procedurally true but not electorally. Take the Congress; except for one particular election (which got them a sympathy ride) it has always been a Chinese Gandhi who has been the PM candidate. It is just that SoniaG installed MMS as the PM. This country cannot afford puppets anymore; we have paid a heavy price for it. Real PMs must be at least elected by public vote. Other than that whether it’s AIADMK, DMK, SP, JDU, RJD, TMC, BSP or any such party, their default PM candidate is already known. Smaller outfits like SS, MNS, AAP, Akalis or BJD also have their “owner” as the default PM candidate. The dictator and “owner” of that party is automatically their PM candidate. The only two major political parties who do not have an “owner” who is a default PM candidate are BJP and CPM. In the new economic order I would choose to discount CPM playing a major role. Therefore, the only party with a national presence that does not automatically have a default PM is BJP.

It is in the above context that the rise of Narendra Modi from a party worker to BJP’s PM nominee is nothing short of phenomenal. He had to fight hard to succeed and be where he is today. It may not be easily replicated in India’s future quite soon. Remember, he was never even meant to be a CM or electoral candidate at one time. He was parachuted into Gujarat at a time of crisis after the 2001 earthquake. I cannot forget that earthquake that occurred at 8am on Republic Day 2001. The BJP govt then was slammed for poor relief work and that’s how a grassroots worker like NaMo was flown in. Since then the story has been the media and his political opponents (and some within his own party) hounding him over the 2002 riots and all other manufactured allegations. Even today a pathetic Congress couldn’t come up with anything other than this from a man who talks about “escape velocity”:

It is pretty dumb of RahulG or those who feed him these lines to once again start the 2002 song. It doesn’t occur to the man or his sycophants that it’s the hounding of Modi over the 2002 riots that actually brought him more prominence. Otherwise, he would have been just another CM as many others. It also helped that Modi gained reputation as a performer and known to be uncorruptible. It also helped that he happens to be a great orator who holds large numbers of people in thrall when he speaks. But the most important thing that also endears Modi as new hope is the pathetic lack of performance by the Congress and other parties who are still seeped in corruption, appeasement and vote-bank politics. The Johny-come-lately Arvind Kejriwal who acted like a corruption-fighter turned out as corrupt and as much a non-performer as the Congress. In fact, it is now publicly acknowledged that AK is a foot-soldier of SoniaG and nothing more.

The Congress and its jokers keep talking nonsense about Modi and the nation itself. Recently, Salman Khurshid their minister went to London and trashed our Supreme Court and Election Commission. The Congress members seem to have completely become senile. They rant against Modi but can’t motivate their own team as this report on a Google Hangout of Rahul Gandhi indicates:


It was a miserable flop with not even regular Congress members participating in the programme. Worse, the image of empty chairs at the hall where members were to have interacted with RahulG has been seen by almost everybody who tracks news and events. It is tragic. People who support their own political preferences and leaders will do so. They may support Jaya, Maya, Mamata, Mulayam, Rahul or Kejriwal as they passionately should. A political contest is bound to generate a lot of heat but there are some in this list of names who are totally unfit to be deciding the course of this nation. Most of them are Congress clones and I strongly believe for India to progress Congress must die. It was Mahatma Gandhi's dream too. The Congress has no ideology except “Gandhi family” and the same ideology has been adopted by many other parties too. Indians must refuse to be slaves to individuals and families and recognise performers and parties with internal democracy. Indians should choose leaders who have performed, who have risen from the ranks through merit and public approval. That’s where the future of a large, diverse country lies.

The Anti-Modi army in the media and assorted NGOs and corrupt individuals will continue to support the rise of the corrupt to protect their own vested interests. Some in the media and public domain that I had listed earlier in a post as in the pic below will be active again:


In the long term, all of us are dead. “Que sera sera, whatever will be will be, the future’s not ours to see”. But it is well within our hands to get rid of the corrupt ideology that the Congress has come to represent for many decades. There is a bunch with a similar ideology and there is one that stands with a different ideology. But the one I do strongly support is a “Congress Mukt Bharat”. I will back anyone who works for this. That being so, I too have only word for Narendra Modi: WIN!

  1. Rajdeep announced that AK will contest elections against NaMo in Varanasi even before AK had said anything about (he still has not confirmed ). Need we say more about RS?. Meanwhile Swaraj creating ruckus at this moment is deplorable. Personal ego must be kept aside (atleast till the elections get over).

    1. What AK and RS are doing, was much expected. They are going by the individual DNAm so what they are doing is natural...both are scums. What Sushma has done surprises me, but I do hope that this is the beginning of her end aka a Keshubhai. Sushma, LKA, Shatrughana are hopefully in the last leg of their tantrums, before they run out of all support within the Party. Remember neither of these 3 have any great achievements to talk about, Just that they a gang and Congress B Team. Infact I would call them AAP B Team and Congress C Team. The honor of Congress B Team goes to AAP, Rajdeep, Barkha, PPB.....

      For the likes of mororns who go by the name of Arvind Kejriwal and co. i would like to ask them that on what credentials are they questioning the administrative and leadership qualities of Mr. Modi who has been in democratic state service for the last 15 years. In less than 50 days time AK proved to his beleivers that actually all that gliters is not gold. On the contrary
      states are run with a sense of political acumen which doesnt survive on 24*7 Big Boss like live camera coverage... AK should keep in mind the saying that " you can fool some people some of the times.... most people most of the times but not all people all the time".

  2. Very apt last sentence for all of us Indians. We had been in a coma for a long time. We are awake now and egg Narendra Modi on to win.

  3. India is in a state of coma...literally & figuratively. NaMo has to WIN or else the essence of India is dead. My fellow citizens, please don't leave ANY stone unturned to make the true & only leader of India victorious. We truly are at the crossroads and are answerable to the future generations of decisions we make today. India calls upon you..it is now or never.

  6. A beautiful and moving article. No other politician in India has faced so much slander, personal attacks from both within and outside his party, with even a stupid US visa refusal and its lapdogs joining in. But Modi displayed nerves of steel by focusing on performance and completely ignored the hyenas baying for his blood. Unlike his other puny contenders for PM post, he is a real leader who inspires confidence in me and and countless other people cutting across caste, class, religion etc. Importantly he faces people and talks to them instead of rushing to the media at the drop of a hat. Yes, I join you in wishing to see Modi now do only one thing. WIN.

  9. It is the good fortune of India, that Modi had to face the continuous torture and media gaze that he did. It has made him far stronger, far more clever and much better prepared for the top job. There was a time, when he used to try and refute the slander press...he may have hesitated about some stuff, made a few mistakes in his 12 years of governance and paid for it...but as a result, we have the truly strong and time-tested leader who can change our future for the better.
    I suspect, once he becomes PM, there will also be an international media witch-hunt against him...similar to that against Putin. The experience he has gained all these years will help him there too. Just a last push remains now...to WIN!

    Happy Holi Ravinar and thanks for the write-up!

Very we'll said.even without any support we ve achieved so much .but govt too is functional and oriented it ll do wonders.but if we let this opportunit surely there is nothing we can do change course of this nation.we must look after ourselves in the same devious ways that congress has been able to inculcate in some of our people.

  11. This is perhaps the best chance India as a nation has. If we allow Congress to form the govt, they will set us back by another 2 to 3 decades. "Survival of the fittest" becomes more a rule than a guideline, as its is now. Corruption will go up exponentially. Anarchy which is introduced in the form of AAP, will become deep rooted and will spread wide. This is a scary situation. Modi must win. And win, he will. This is already decided.

    We must not forget what was said in Bhagat Gita: "Paritranayaye sadhunaam vinashya duskritam dharmsansthapanarthya sambhavami yuge yuge" This is that moment. We are all fortunate in witnessing it and for becoming participants.

  13. Happy Holi to Mr. Ravinar and all readers.
    I just wish this election to be a peaceful one, devoid of any serious violence like in 1991. This has become BJP's election to lose. The UPA ministers are running helter skelter with their tails between their legs fearing a worst defeat. RG & SG may not have to worry about winning their seats but that cannot be said about other congress candidates, especially in north India. BJP must distribute tickets wisely now. They have a good battery of leaders but they must be present in both houses of parliament to take on the opposition. All top leaders need not contest LS election and give more time to campaigning. All 70+ leaders should have vacated their seats in favour of the younger generation and build a strong leadership base for the future. I am bit disappointed with tickets given to family members of some leaders. Only BJP can bring about new leaders devoid of any political forefathers. The way NaMo has risen is a tribute to this unique feature of BJP.
    All in all, it should be now or never attitude that should drive BJP campaign.
    Last but not the least, we voters must ensure that we come out to vote in large numbers in cities particularly to guide NaMo to 7 RCR. Look at Chattisgarh population when they have voted avg at least 75 % in vidhan sabha elections and they are not as developed or educated as people in Metro cities.
    Let us join Mr. Ravinar in wishing Shri. Modi to WIN and WIN COMPREHENSIVELY.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I believe the media by now is convinced that nothing can stop NaMo from becoming PM. The Congress is down and demoralized. The AAP is only hot air. It is only the fence-sitting regional parties who will somehow veer towards the NDA once the results are out.

    Now their mission is to make the next regime led by NaMo to be a weak one - by increasing the BJP's dependence on NDA partners. This will protect their turf!

    1. Watched the video. The players of the video gives the game away when one of the interviewee says, that Army was called three days after the violence begins.
      The fact was army was called in the first day itself.
      Secondly compare them with previous riots and the convictions that took place, most of the due to active participation of Gujarat police, that gives the answer. Why would a compromised police even let the convictions happen?

  19. The Mahabharata was also a story of a family feud! Indians are obsessed with dynasties of a single family and fight wars (elections) to preserve it. If we have to come out of this coma, I feel that we should begin portraying Mahabharata in a different perspective - one that downplays the family bickerings. (Sorry for the digression)

  25. Modi's first priority before anything else has to be to clean the country. Commies, NGOs, terrorists, JNU monkeys, missionaries, paid media, Maoists, Naxalites, foreign agents - the list is endless. Last, but certainly not least, Congress. They need to disappear permanently. Whatever happens, if one is concerned about securing India's future, all of the above need to go. I sincerely hope he understands this.

      A combination of legal action against current and past offenders, a reassertion of the core of Indian values despite the inevitable shrill response, and a overhaul of the education system would be a good start.

  28. Dear Ravinaar and all the readers. Happy Holi.I think all your readers will support me when I request you to come out in open and take them head on.Place at the top is open. I have seen and read many media persons there are very few who match the plethora of knowledge and information Ravinaar has. To my mindd Ravinaar stands in the company of Arun Shorie, MV Kamath , Giri LalJain, H.K.Dua and others who set highest standard of journalism. Raviji your blog is reaching just a limited no of people. Why donot you appear on TV debates even as indendent intellectual while we have seen that people like Kamal Mitra Chinoy, Arun Bhatia, Satinath and other paranoids are barbing day in and out . Why cannot a person like you take his rightful place and shoot these MSM and phoney intellectuals down. I have seen only Ms Irani, Ms Lekhi and Dr Swamy can argue their point forcefully. It is high time Ravinaar contributres in a manner which is required . Only blog is not sufficient to make it happen. What are views of other readers ?

  30. Congress mukt India will happen in the next few months based on the following sequence of events:
    Modi wins national elections
    NDA forms govt
    Rahul loses interest in politics, leaves India for a life long "vacation" in Italy
    In the absence of solid leaders Sonia loses her grip as an opposition leader
    Modi's economic development model systematically dismantles the opposition that way it did in Gujarat

    These is the only way for a Congress free India

  31. Thanks Ravinar, completely agree with u. The biggest contributing factor to modi's rise has been his hounding by the media coupled with 10yrs of upa 2. In 2009, im sure even a die hard bjp supporter was cringing at the prospect of having to support lka for PM. Namo was waiting to happen, the amount of diatribe against him had to rebound at some point of time. We need a strong right wing party. Do u notice this whole campaign about voting for the right candidate etc? Its nothing but garbage, whats the point in voting for a right candidate in the wrong party? The most honest of MP's dont go against their dongi high command. So i wud rather repose my faith in the PM candidate and hope that his value system will percolate downwards to his MP's etc., and that he will listen and value the opinions of his people. I do wish Modi not only wins this time, but also takes the country out of the morass we are sinking into. Hopefully if he can do that, then hindu consolidation will happen and if that happens no one can stop this country from prospering as the vote bank nonsense of other parties will get swept away. I am so happy to see the campaign for dongi mukht bharat, and the greatest contributor to this cause is the dongi queen herself as she hasnt allowed any regional leaders to bloom. The only major dongi leader with grass roots support now is Siddu (come to think of it, karnataka is probably the second largest dongi ruled state now - though they will lose Maharashtra heavily very soon). But Siddu is smart, he is sidelining all the original dongi party fellows. If Dongi queen loses heavily in 2014, then even siddu doesnt have to listen to her.Its been a amazing journey for modi and i really wish, hope and pray that it reaches its destination successfully. His journey will end up being truly inspirational to the next few generations of Indians to believe in their abilities

  34. One wonders is there any limitation on number of seats one person can contest from!!suppose nominations are filed by NAMO for all the 543 constituencies!!!He may win easily in half of them!!! This brings to mind an idea..why not each aspirant for PM (any indian citizen is eligible) file nominations for any number of constituencies. Whoever wins maximum no. becomes the prime minister..further he in consultation with his party decision making body, can give power of attorney to suitable party member to function as MP for the constituencies he has won. Similarly other aspirants can give power of attorney to their party members to function as MPs in those constituencies where they have won.. The thought has come because today all surveys indicate NAMO is the post popular choice to become PM by a wide margin..still because of the system today, there is a possibility of a least preferred candidate (from third front) ending up as PM and getting pulled in all directions while in governance.

  36. I think we are looking at a hung parliament with NDA emerging as the largest pre election group getting around 220 seats ( approx 50 seats short ). BJP is bungling as usual . Relying excessively on Narendra Modi and it is foolish to put all eggs in one basket . Has needlessly rocked its stable boat by changing seats , selecting bad candidates ( example Kiran kher , what political experience she has ??? ). Plus unable to reign in internal jaichands ( sushma, shatrughan). And Congress supporting Media will soon unleash its blitzkreig against Modi and bjp which the bungling spokespersons of BJP ( viz ravishankar Prasad, jawadekar, chandan mitra et al ) will not be able to manage.
    We get a government we deserve . I will not write off congress and third front ( including aap) for now

  37. There is one interesting thing from the photo - All of them speak in unison. Same points, same logic. You hear one you hear all. Like a choir reading from one book.

    So much for the Free Media.

    I am 37 yrs old and used to think about 2-3 yrs back that the civil war in India on religious faultlines will happen after I am gone, say 40yrs down the line, but now seriously think that if a strong Nationalist government is not in place for atleast 10 years now, it may happen much sooner.

    Situation in North-East incl Assam, Keral, Bengal, parts of UP, Bihar, AP, Karnataka is reaching alarming levels thanks to abrahamic religions, commies and Khangressis.

    It is high time that Hindus unite and vote. Even if 50-60% of Hindus vote in one direction, our motherland is safe.
