We hear the phrase "I am happy for you" often. But do we really feel happy for someone other than our own family? Today for the first time I felt happy for aam admi party and aam admi.
Because of three facts this election has proved
- Some how from some where honesty is creeping into Indian politics. So are honest people. Unbelievable but true
- Indian aam admi - common man has proved that he is not a sheep as the politicians like to believe. And his vote can not be bought with gifts.
- Any man in this country is not invincible no matter how strong he appears or how strong mandate he has got.
I spent most part of the afternoon doing what my spouse does, watching news channel debates - with "interest".
Few interesting points which were opined were
Many in the BJP were waiting for this moment.
The sheer arrogance of BJP caused its downfall.
The personal attacks which helped BJP in Loksabha elections completely misfired this time.
Anyway let us hope that this is the beginning of "ache din" - the real ones - for aam admi.
