The fictitious stories of Economic Growth reached the masses but not the benefits. Employment opportunities were dwindling and the youth of the country were running from pillar to post to find a job to survive - forget about the luxuries of life. The poor, the middle class and rich, all were to suffer and an indifferent and inarticulate establishment was blaming the world economy for the situation and not the mess that they have made of Indian Economy. Doling out some sobs to the suffering masses to show the government's concern and resolve was never the solution of the problem.
The Congress party failed to recognize that its old paternalistic ways of governing won't work. There were big question marks over Sonia's concern and sympathy for the masses and Rahul Ghandi's political acumen as the future PM. He never realized that ancestors and history can't bring the bread at poor man's platter. He rarely attended parliament and seldom cared to speak. There was absolute break-down in communication between public and the rulers. Inertia was the name of the game.
I know that the clout of votes of every segment of society including Muslims has lost its luster in the glittering victory of Modi but their well being and reassurance of a just society based on true secular is still the binding thread which the country can't afford to break. I do still support the Nehruvian Socialism and do still harbor my reservations but offer my best wishes to Narendra Modi and I dream and pray Allah for a beautiful society under his leadership.
"I never thought of losing, but now that it's happened, the only thing is to do it right. That's my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life." - Muhammad Ali
