India is gearing up for the 2014 elections and all I see in the news is speculations and debates about who’ll be the prime minister of India next year. I personally am supporting Modi and if BJP declares Modi has their PM candidate, I’ll vote for BJP. Ramchandra Guha wrote an article in The Hindu titled “The Man Who Would Rule India” and it tries to convince us that Modi will become a dictator and that’ll be a failure of the Indian democracy.
There were times I used to think Democracy is ‘the way’ for the nations. But over the time, my thoughts have changed. I’m kind of convinced that democracy either cannot exist or if it exists, it’s designed to fail. ‘Of the people, by the people, for the people’ just does not work! ‘Majority Wins’ is not always the best solution. What majority of the people think may not be always in the best interest of the people. There were times when majority of people used to think that the Earth is flat; but one visionary proved everyone wrong!
India needs a benevolent visionary who can lead by example and get the things done with speed. In these times, I do not think we have an option other than Modi. Do you agree?
