Just 2 more days and India will bounce back!!

Like a Phoenix!!India will rise once again,the last decade or so has been horrible under the rule of the congress government and  the election results this coming friday will give power to the BJP led NDA,a party that i support and led by Narendra Modi,India will be back on track again.

on may 16th results are due for the world's largest ever polling exercise in Democratic history,never have so many people voted together from one country!!they have voted to bring to power one of the most controversial and polarising figures of modern India-Narendra Modi.Indians have put their faith in a man who carries the hopes of more than a billion people to bring about economic revival but controversially also very unfairly carries the stigma of the 2002 riots in gujurat.

i am an unabashed Modi Supporter to the extent that one of my very good muslim friends from school has stopped being in touch with me!!the other day one of our patients from USA was asking me how India a nation of such great diversity where people from different religions,nationalities,castes ,langauages and culture have lived together for centuries in harmony is going to elect a divisive figure like Modi??my answer is simple- India has had a history of riots since the time the british colonised us and this policy of dividing the country on religious lines suited the monarchy perfectly because no one for nearly 200 years protested their rule because they were busy fighting each other on religious or regional grunds,this policy was continued by the Gandhi family and the congress party which always came to power by fear mongering and creating insecurity amongst the minorities especially the muslim community.earlier it was Nehru then his daughter Indira then her son Rajeev followed by his wife Sonia Gandhi.this fear mongering and offering benefits to the minority communities became the hallmark of the congress party which helped them to hold on to power for nearly 60 years by dividing the country on religious and ethnic lines,the minorities kept on voting for them because they were so scared by the propoganda of the congress that if some other party like the BJP came to power they would not take good care of them or would push them into submission,in fact they became so scared that they never realised that the congress kept them poor and economically backward for 60 years for their votes, the good news is that the youth have woken up and realised this tactic of the congress party,they want growth,they want development,they want to put the past behind,they realise that economic freedom and development is the best security for any individual or family or religious group,they dont want freebies,they want jobs,they want to work and earn a good living,they want good roads,good infrastruture, no power outages!!  

 Modi can provide all of this and more!!he has been in power in gujurat for more than 12 years and not even a single Communal riot or disturbance has taken place under his watch whereas every year some or the other major religious riot happens in some part of the country or the other,the industrial and agricultural output in gujurat has been consistenly 3 to 4 folds higher compared to the average growth rates for the rest of the country and there is unlimited power supply in almost all parts of gujurat because he has harnessed solar power .

In 2004 India was riding a economic wave,a superpower in the making,talked about in the same breath as china india had become a nation that after centuries of oppression and foreign rule gained the confidence to start believing in itself,in 2004 Manmohan singh became PM,he had immaculate credentials as an economist and is perhaps the cleanest politician in the country after Modi.10 years later in 2014 whilst china has gone from strength to strength,India on the other hand has become an "Aaya Ram,gaya Ram"(has been)

PM singh sat quietly and watched from the sidelines as Sonia gandhi and her son Rahul gandhi Single handedly destroyed and betrayed the hopes of a billion people!!growth stuttered under policy paralysis and corruption,the Cabinet filled their pockets whilst the country suffered from lack of investment and ridiculous retrospective rulings and laws which includes the ridiculous retrospective tax ruling in the vodafone case and the even more bizarre visa regulations for foriegn nationals undergoing surrogacy in India

There are millions of unemployed youth in the country and they want jobs and not  freebies worth 2 dollars a day!!in Modi millions of Indians hope to finally and forever shed the tag of underachievers and even though the appointment of Modi as PM of India is not agreeable at all to several fake and pseudo seculars but for millions of others Modi represents "hope" of a brighter future!!

just 2 more days(:
