A New Phase of Succession of Nationalistic Mantra

When the majority is looking at the current so called uproar in the BJP as a disintegration of the most disciplined political outfits in the modern India, I see this as a welcome transition of the phase for a new beginning. This would to my mind evolve a welcome change in the organizational behavior and the need to enforce a robust and long term direction which comprises an inclusive nationalistic politics guided by affirmative leadership.

An appropriate analogy which comes to my mind is similar to an accumulated dirt in the pond which does not have an entry of fresh flowing water and exit for the accumulated stuff, like wise BJP after its meteoric rise in the early 90's closed all its openings and presumed that they have achieved the objective. As is said a stream of fresh flowing water does not let the dirt accumulate and ensures that no harmful bacteria and viruses get a chance to mutate. Fresh flowing water in fact can be utilized to generate electricity and if the might of the flowing water is not controlled and regulated can cause the devastation as well.

Its time BJP realizes that nothing is permanent and the only thing permanent is change and the successful mantra for evolution is adaptability to change. Politics and for that matter life itself has become dynamic, so it is all the more imperative to induce the seeds of dynamism by evolving a model where in as a political organization it should follow the principles of physics and allow adequate friction for the motion and its for the leadership to regulate the friction so that it doesn’t cease the motion.

Conclusively its time for change and a sense of accountability has to prevail as in any business organization good or bad the people at the top morally should take responsibility and step aside and give an opportunity to the critics to experiment so that they can prove otherwise. Each one has to realize that the national and organizational interest is beyond any individual. A new example has to be set which would go a longway in resurrecting the organization and reigniting the principles and the ideology of Inclusive Nationalism.

To conclude my thoughts the direction one needs to adapt is well described in a poem by Krishna Bakshi:

मेरी ज़िद

तेरी कोशिश, चुप हो जाना,
मेरी ज़िद है, शंख बजाना ...

ये जो सोये, उनकी नीदें
सीमा से भी ज्यादा गहरी
अब तक जाग नहीं पाये वे
सर तक है आ गई दुपहरी;
कब से उन्हें, पुकार रहा हूँ
तुम भी कुछ, आवाज़ मिलाना...

तट की घेराबंदी करके बैठे हैं सारे के सारे,
कोई मछली छूट न जाये इसी दाँव में हैं मछुआरे.....
मैं उनको ललकार रहा हूँ,
तुम जल्दी से जाल हटाना.....

ये जो गलत दिशा अनुगामी
दौड़ रहे हैं, अंधी दौड़ें,
अच्छा हो कि हिम्मत करके
हम इनकी हठधर्मी तोड़ें.....
मैं आगे से रोक रहा हूँ -
तुम पीछे से हाँक लगाना ....

- कृष्ण वक्षी
