Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya – May HE lead us from ignorance to knowledge

End of the road?

with one comment

While I am not an expert in analyzing how political parties are likely to fare after Elections 2009, it looks likely that Sri Advaniji would not have a long political career ahead. It certainly would make more sense from the BJP point of view for him to begin a “transition” exercise.

I feel a little sad thinking that Sri Advani is going to join a huge band of politicians/social activists in India who are going to go down in History as the “also-rans”.

We have a record of forgetting our great leaders. Nobody takes the name of Sardar Patel in the same breadth as Nehru. I sometimes tend to think that the Sardar’s contribution was much bigger. One hardly ever remember’s Lal Bahadur Shastri. I am not sure how many of our future generations will pay P V Narasimha Rao the credit that he deserves for bringing our economy back on track.

I don’t even want to get into the pre-Independence era. Our history books have forever erased the names of hundreds of freedom fighters who made significant contributions.

Similarly, one cannot help but feel that history is going to remember Sri Advani as just another politician in Indian politics. I would have loved to see him get a chance at running this country. Not to be…..
