 After Public Private Participation PPP the Politics Personalities Parties PPP discussed in an earlier thread was interesting. I am with the “Prajagalu” as far as the abysmal speed with which things are progressing in our country’s politics as much we would like it in a hurry. 

While any body including the few well meaning people in power would like to sympathize with the hurry that we the “Prajagalu” are to get instant solutions to our day to day problems, the solution is not that simple. I would like to bring to the notice of the “Prajagalu” that daily commute is not the only problem that our governments are supposed to tackle. There are many responsibilities apart from solving daily traffic problems, like Education, Public health, Literacy, Disparity etc to name a few. 

After attending several public meetings and Praja discussions on several subjects, kindly permit me to start by a sample dictionary meaning of Political Science [which is easily and wrongly interpreted as PPP of politics] :- 

“Political Science is the study of the processes, principles, and structure of government and of political institutions; politics.” 

Democracy is acclaimed at least in our age as an excellent process leading to democratic governments which can lead to workable structures of good governance. India is a unique and large Democracy surrounded by 4 or more countries that are not democracies. 

  1. Pakistan
  2. Bangladesh
  3. China
  4. Myanmar
  5. ?
  6. ?

After 60 years it is believed by our countries political scientists that our democracy has begun its journey towards being a successful democracy. Why have we taken 60 years? Any answers? Let me try my hand at it! 

Jawaharlal Nehru was a master of History. He was also an admirer of the Mahatma and the first prime minister of India and perhaps a very successful one too. I only want to drive the attention of the “Prajagalu” to the 400 years of slavery our country had to undergo at the hand of our rulers. Thanks to the one Mahatma who could spearhead the inevitable movement which got us the Independence. After Independence we have not done badly by any standards. [When one compare 60 years to 400 years] 

However there is a difference. In olden days of chieftains, Kings and Emperors, people had to fight bloody battles between different rulers. But now the battle is against corrupt people corrupting a good, workable political system called Democracy. Let us not call the 60 years of Independence a waste of time. It is a small percentage of the 400 years of slavery our fore fathers had to undergo. There is no shortcut to achieve excellence! 

If we the praja are in a hurry can we think of Privatizing traffic to any big reputed houses like Tata Birlas, Mittals Murthys Neelekanis  etc etc? In fact this trend was mentioned as real during the A debate on India’s changing political landscape event. I think it was the moderator or one the two politicians!
