It was of course expected. This joke that there is none other than this "young" fool from India's super-corrupt dynasty that is suitable to run India's oldest political party.
But I hope these people realise that they have given a HUGE lie to the idea that India is a democracy.
What's the probability that in a billion strong population, the leadership of a "national" DEMOCRATIC party in India will come from the same family TWICE in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi)
Now what's the probability such leadership will come from the same family THRICE in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi)
What about FOUR times in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi)
What about FIVE times in a row? (Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi).
I suspect the probability is lower than the probability of finding a particular atom among all atoms in the universe, or something of that order.
I'm not a fan of of Shashi Tharoor but at least I know that he is 100000000000000^1000000000 ("^" is an exponent) times better than Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi.
There are MANY others in Congress whom Congress could have picked.
But they HAD to choose Rahul Gandhi. And we know Priyanka is next in line, since Rahul is such a well known fool.
When in February 2010 Nandan Nilekani suggested I join an existing party he almost certainly meant Congress.
But why in heaven's name will I join Congress when I KNOW that (even) my calibre, my competence will be INSULTED by these THIRD RATE CROOKS and I'll be expected to lick their boots?
I'm not surprised at MMS doing that. He is such a spineless twit. But I'm amazed that Shashi Tharoor DAILY licks the boots of such GOONS.
I wish he had some self respect. Then India could have been different.
I even now invite Shashi Tharoor to RESIGN from Congess and apply to join FTI. He is not going to qualify easily. We'll need to do a thorough checkup of his accounts and assets, but at least he has a chance of being accepted as a future leader of India if he tries hard enough to join FTI. In Congress, his chance is ZERO.
I keep in touch with Mr Nikelani whom I greatly admire. I'll send a link to this blog post to him. I hope he understands where I come from.
Respect. Please! Let's get some self-respect in India.
Democracy should MEAN democracy. Not rule by GOONS who have cornered the greatest quantity of BLACK MONEY.
In fact, had Jawaraharal himself been born today and not been a member of this dynasty, there would be NO CHANCE that he would be promoted to senior positions by this same party.
And Gandhi would have had to flee India, back to South Africa.
