Eminent writer-activist Mahasweta Devi, recently praised Gujarat, "I have been to Gujarat many times, especially during the 2002 communal killings. ..I was deeply impressed to see the strong work culture in Gujarat. The city and village roads are well-built, even the remotest villages have electricity and access to drinking water. I was especially impressed with the medical facilities in the panchayats and local-level health centers..." Comparing to the over 30 years of the communist Government rule in West Bengal, she summarizes, "...Not at all like West Bengal where, even now, villages and panchayat areas have hardly any electricity.
The recent Nano car episode is further proof of the difference between the governments of the two states.Writes Prafull Goradia, "What is unique about Mr Modi is his governance by management and administration by objectives. Singapore under legendary Lee Kuan Yew was the pioneer in adopting this concept and conclusively proving its success. .. In Gujarat he has demonstrated a flair for statesmanship.
."The people of India are disillusioned with its politicians, to say the least. Even after 61 yrs of Independence, a vast section of the population still remains underprivileged, poor and illiterate. Big plans and tall promises are made at every election but are never implemented. Shortsighted policies meant for immediate gain, corruption, nepotism, manipulation of the system for personal benefit, lust for wealth and power and ugly vote bank policies are rampant and usual. Development for the mass is the least of the priorities. Virtues of honesty, integrity, wisdom, morality and nationalism are almost rare. Even if there are a handful of honest and decent politicians, they either lack the vision or the assertiveness to implement a program or lack the raw nonchalant strength of character required to carry out a plan against odds. In Narendra Modi, India has a politician with most required qualities to change the tide. It is not any exaggeration to say that, after his experience and experimentation with Gujarat, he probably has the answers to all the problems that the nation is facing today. He is not only the best choice but perhaps the only choice to lead the country.The so called Gujarat model of development is nothing but the result of hard work of a visionary. There is no reason why it cannot be extended to the rest of India. The latest worldwide craze of the new US President Barack Obama who perhaps, beside his image and his words, has few other achievements to back him is the latest example of how media can make a person. No such favor can be expected from the hostile Indian media in case of Modi. His every word and every move are scrutinized microscopically to find a fault that can be used against him. Even if the so called Hindutva poster boy demolishes temples for the sake of widening a road, the fake secular media will find fault in him and would fancy a battle and pit him against other Hindu organizations. One can imagine what they would do if he destroys a church or a mosque. It is ironic that the Indian Media which goes gaga over a small icon of Hanuman that reportedly Obama carries with him fails to acknowledge the dedication of Hanumanji that Modi carries in his heart. Thus other than a handful of protagonist it is likely that the Indian media will not support Narendra Modi. Sure there will be opposition from other sides. Modi is the kind of personality who is bound to have overt or covert enemies. A lot of people will have a lot of undue privileges to lose and they are not expected to accept it willfully. Our self styled secularist, our opportunistic politicians, the folks who manage our national media, the activists who shed crocodile tears for the minorities will all fight till their last breath. A lot of national and possible international interests who would not like to see India to grow fast and become at par with developed nations will defy such a move. Already some are alarmed, "The more Moditva grows, the more its opposite has to be strengthened. But what will the Indian people want? We have to realize that collective candlelight based solidarity will not change the fate of our beloved nation. We have to demand the change with conviction. A revolution is required to save the country. We owe it to our past and we owe it to our future. Then there are other questions. Will Mr. Modi agree to step out of Gujarat? Will all the other leaders of BJP and its allies stand behind the person who can take this country and the party to an unprecedented zenith? Will good sense prevail in some of the other people in power today?Will we, the people of India unite, despite all disagreements, with a single minded goal of taking our country forward and will we be willing to get above all possible reservations about the man and choose the only person who can lead us towards that glory. Do we want that change?

ipl-indian political league
ipl-indian premire league
i find the second one quite boring n insignificant.on the contrary the first one is damn intresting
as it is not just about entertainment its about ourselves.lets come to point my poll projection going state by state are
ANDHRA PRADESH-i dont think upa will be as lucky in this state as it was in 2004 .but it will not be complete sweep out by tdp+trs[thanks to chiru] but certainly congress may end up at may be 18 seats in andhra.tdp can finish at 16-17 while trs[now with nda] can get 5 seats.so a significant loss for upa.although nda is also not in gain without trs.
assam-for assam it can be 7 for upa and 7 for nda may be.so no major gains or losses in this state.
bihar-the most drastic change will occur here for sure.nitish development agenda will surely overpower laloo caste politics.well this state can give 30 seats to nda n upa[along with laloo n paswan] can end up in single digit so bihar will see a role reversal now.bye bye laloo
chattisgarh-again it will be 10-1 for nda.no losses no gains.thsnks to development works of cm raman singh
gujarat-19 for bjp n 7 for congress dat means modi magic continues n 5 seats will be gained by nda.
harayana-it will be 5 for upa n 4 for nda so upa will dip by 4
himachal-2-2 for both
jharkhand-8 for nda n 6 for upa so a great setback here tooo for upa.
kerala -may be 13 for upa n 7 for left
tamilnadu-well this is the state were exit polls will go wrong it will be huge advantage to 3rd front this time n upa can barely come in 2 digits .so a loss of 25 seats may be in tamilnadu.
rajasthan-a gain of 10 for upa dat means may be 13 for upa n 12 for nda
maharshtra-no significant change at least 26 for nda
west bengal-it will belong to left .but upa here can gain considerably
orissa-ceratin gain for congress
karnataka-no significant change
punjab-considerable loss for nda may end up at 4-5
uttar pradesh-varun magic will work nda can go upto20+.upa can go upto double figures
so in short what we can say is nda will gain in bihar[20 seats],jharkhand-7 seats,gujarat-5,uttar pradesh, andhra but will loose some seats in rajasthan,orissa,punjab,madhya pradesh[2 max],karnataka[2max]
but one thing is interesting
bihar,jharkhand,gujarat,harayana are only the states where nda will gain because of upa loss
while upa gain from nda will be confined to orissa,rajsthan,punjab
in all other sates where upa is loosing considerably like andhra,tanil nadu it will be 3rd front who is gaining while upa gain in wb n kerala is from left front losses
so in sort after reading this whole article i m sure you will be confused like i m but here are some major points which i thin can happen
1.NDa will be larest pre-poll alliance but will be far away from magic figures
2.upa will be close second
3.it will be jayalalitha,cb naidu n mayawati who can decide country's next pm
but i dont think it will be manmohan,advani chances are also less[but more than manmohan]
we will have a surprise this time like in 1996 may be
n two names which i think can be
sharad pawar-it is wide spread dat he wans to become pm so he can do some permutations n combinations for himself
but the front runner is nitish kumar-no party except rjd,ljp[who cares about them anyway]
n because of his clean n silent image he can be next pm.
although these ones are unlikely but as it is said
PREDICT THE UNPREDICTED IN INDIAN POLITICS
NOTE-PLEASE IGNORE THE SPELLING N GRAMMAR MISTAKES IF ANY AS IT WAS WRITTEN IN VERY SHORT PERIOD.
DISCLAIMER-I DONT HOLD ANY RESPONSIBILITY IF PROJECTION GOES WRONG AS PROJECTIONS ARE MADE TO GO WRONG
and what more my prediction is wrong although UPA won which really makes me sad
i wanted a non-bjp,non-congress govt
