According to the Oxford Dictionary, ‘Politics’ is defined as “ the activities involved in getting and using power in public life, and being able to influence decision that affect a country or a society based on GOOD JUDGEMENT”.
Doesn’t that sound a bit unreal to you? Well, it does to me. I’ve been following the current political scenario in India, based on which, here is my definition of ‘Politics’,
The Political system in India is lacking just every positive aspect. We are in dire need of a true leader, maybe someone like Indira Gandhi, who can lead us to a better world.
Political parties (supposedly) work on issues that matter to the general public in a way that it gives them dividend. They come in alliance over these issues and promise to deliver a solution.
People usually feel that Demand (be it of any kind) will overpower Supply and they will be left out. This is where politicians promise to fulfill the gap.
In simple words, POLITICS IS ALL ABOUT SELLING DREAMS, WITH NO ASSURANCE OF THEIR FULFILLMENT.
Today, the established political parties, like BJP and Congress are worried as they are no longer able to sell their concrete dreams (at least some are concrete). Politicians are now worried about the new voters as they are not concerned with ideologies.
So, as a hit and trial solution to this, political parties are launching new faces, in new regions, specially different linguistic states, in order to attract more voters (on regional and linguistic basis) and also remove the incumbency factor.
Well, what we need to understand and get straight in our brains is that each and every person, be it of any caste, creed, color, sex, or religion, demands basic human Dignity.
If they get the dignity demanded they will be much content and this would certainly reduce 70% issues and also the chances of politicians to play with the minds of people.
Also, the emotive issues always give a back to social issues like gender bias, child labor, abuse,etc. which are of great concern and without whose solution, development cannot be attained as they are a gap between being Developing and Developed .
Parties are under a pressure to perform and to be more civil, to create opportunities as facilitators.
All these factors will certainly decide the fate of each political party in the elections.
It is on us, the young voters to think about it, about electing the right Government and even about being a part of the system by JOINING POLITICS.
