Come India, Let’s All Hate Arvind Kejriwal

Funny country, ours is. We love to hate. We are so fed up of our own miserable problems and pathetic administration that we just need a media-created effigy to direct our hatred and burn. Beyond logic. Beyond rationale. Beyond the levels of tolerance and sophistication that one can expect from a country that boasts itself as the world’s largest democracy.

Acche Din Aane Wale Hai?

Suddenly, 30-40 people draped in saffron attire and wearing “Modi For PM” caps surrounded our vehicle and started to shout slogans to provoke us. Seeing themselves failing, they started to bang the front glass. Don’t lose me here on! Left confused about what was happening, I tried to see through the mob for Police help but all that I could see as far as my eyes allowed was  a saffron mob.  I could only see cracks developing in the front glass. The cracks were only getting prominent with each passing second and the sloganeering more abusive.  By now, our car was stuck in the middle of a road with hundreds of people yet none with us. One BJP supporter came by driver’s side and started hitting him on face. When I tried to reach out to him for help, I heard the sound of my own gate opening and felt someone pulling me from my collar from the side.  Meanwhile, the others barged into the tempo from behind and tore away all the posters, picked up all the campaigning materials and right in front of our eyes threw everything into the drain right there placing his leader on the
pedestal of the God with the “Har Har Modi” slogan. Read More

When BJP goons attacked me

AAP volunteer attacked

We were sitting in a car stuck in traffic near Ravidas gate, Lanka. Around 200-300 BJP workers surrounded our car and started banging on its glass windows. Those hooligans dressed in saffron caps and scarfs seemed to be scary. They were chanting modi....modi... and hitting our vehicle with their fists. If it would not have been Tata Safari, the glass panes would have got broken by the physical force of these 200 men. We three volunteers sitting in the car were terrified. I asked the driver to take the car away but he was helpless as the area was jam packed.

Aam Aadmi, Khaas Politics: Satya Sagar

Source: - By forcefully promoting a cleaner, more transparent and participatory politics AAP is calling the bluff of India’s very claim to being a democracy at all and unwittingly pulling the mask off a system that hides beneath it a thousand dictatorships. Contesting elections with public donations, involving the citizen in decision making and calling for accountability from public servants and politicians AAP is testing the limits of the country’s long rotten, creaking political apparatus.

AAP Shehnai in Varanasi

AAP Shehnai in Varanasi

आज सुबह 5 बजे जब 'आप' के समर्थक चौसट्टी गली में शहनाई की धुन बजाते हुए निकले, तो मोदी मोदी चिल्लाने वाले लोग भी शांत हो गये और उन्होंने हमारे वालंटियर्स का चाय से स्वागत किया। पंडित मनोहर लाल शहनाई बजा रहे थे, कवीश के हाथों में गिटार था और समन और कुछ अन्य साथी वैषणव जन.… के सुर में  बनारस के गलियों में मीठा रस घोल रहे थे. बीच में बीजेपी की टोपी पहने कुछ लोगों ने चाय भी पिलाई, शांती से बैठकर चर्चा भी की और आप के विचारों से सहमती भी जतायी। इस तरह धीरे धीरे कई मोदी समर्थकों का मोहभंग होता जा रहा है.
