Varun Gandhi – Dumb Politics – You think so?

March 27, 2009

I am amazed at how smart Varun Gandhi is, and how dumb the rest of us are!

Savvy marketeer. With 2 speeches, the man has managed to get himself plastered all over all the newspapers. He’s on all the TV news channels. And now by choosing not to extend his anticipatory bail, he will court arrest and get written about even more.

To add to this, there are colleges/campuses/alumni all over the world, who are so OUTRAGED that they’re running campaigns to NOT vote for Varun.

So why isn’t Varun worried? Why is he continuing to go forward?

Because he isn’t dumb, that’s why!

Voters like you and me hardly count. In the ocean of 100 crore indians, we urban educated are but a speck. We’re one solar system in this universe of the democracy called India. As far as Varun is concerned, we DON’T COUNT!

What counts are the millions of uneducated voters, who have suddenly been exposed to yet another Gandhi son. Will they discriminate? Not too many of them I’m afraid. But will they relate to him? Quite a few, for sure.

Here’s my advice, you want to hurt Varun? You want to make sure a man like him doesn’t get elected. Stop talking about him. Don’t write any more. Don’t run petitions. Don’t fuel his fire, people. And it will burn out. Ban Varun from your consicousness, and he will fade.

But our media won’t learn. They want sensationalism. Not responsible journalism. You think Prannoy Roy doesn’t understand Varun’s game? He does. But Prannoy’s in a game too. And he has to run with the wolves now. Sad. Sorry. Democracy is challenged yet again. Will it win. Sure. Another century or two to go.

    That’s the thing… our media might know what it’s doing, but it’s so caught up in the race for TRPs that it’ll sensationalise whatever it thinks will work. Without any thought for the consequences.

    The sad truth is that divisive politics still works in many parts of the country, and the more the media’s going to talk about the nonsense this fellow has said, the more they keep him in the public eye and memory, the more they’re increasing his chances.
