No wonder we are in this mess!!

Yesterday, a good friend of ours came home and quickly our conversation veered to the elections.

He said he will vote for the DMK candidate of his constituency because that person has worked in a bank, is educated (CAIIB) and speaks English.

And in the same breath, he said that he had arranged for a meeting to help the BJP Candidate because they are from the same caste.

So much so for the parameters of the ‘so-called’ educated middle class to choose our representatives!! And he had the audacity to blame  those in the slums for the political situation!!

With these kind of electorate, I am not surprised about the depths to which our political system has fallen.

    And that is the reason why my Lord has created the alternative political dispensation in the form of ‘Aam Aadhmi Party’ !

    Jai Hind !

    Thus Spake the New Age Sage !
