Picture Abhi Baki Hai: A Larger View of AAP Crisis

April 4, 2015

The political infighting and crisis in the AAP has mirrored the lesson, which Indians must learn. The chaos of differences in the young party is a glimpse of a subtle yet powerful challenge every man alive is facing. You would be highly ignorant if you had failed to recognize this struggle to share power, be accommodative in terms of ideas and perspectives, standup for your individuality even while comprising some corners. Any institution, be it family, office, parties, organizations, nations and the world as a whole can’t be successful and man as an individual can’t be contended unless this struggle ends.

This friction in every social space shall not cease to wear and tear human dignity unless it is lubricated with a space for healthy debate. The invention of democratic system of power sharing in politics has been the greatest leap so far to address the problem. Furthermore, we have been successful in creating an official space for the much-needed discussion.

However, lets take a close look at it. There are three different kinds of parties these days. One, brutally fighting among themselves, making politics seem dirty. Two, running a one man’s show. Three, so dispersed that they do not seem to exist apart from trying to gain attention by absconding! All this melodrama shows that there is a need for refining the existing social setup.

We have created an official space for casting a vote, but is it personalized? Are children getting a holistic environment supportive enough to express their views? Are we teaching or have we attempted to learn healthy argument? Are we trained to express our views and at the same time be compassionate to allow others to voice their feelings? These are the questions that every nation builder, parent, teacher, and a responsible citizen should probe into. This is not a voice longing for idealism, but an attempt to step into the flow of refinement that is inherent in our nature.

    sharvari one main point I wanted contribute to your article is that the AAP party born just 3 years back out of turmoil situation prevailing in Indian politics. The process growth of any political party there bound to be difference of ideology.If see the political history of this country congress is born out of freedom struggle of this country Later all bad elements joined in the party and spoiled the party. Today of see the RSS born jansangh, then they merged janata pary again they become BJP. Because the black deeds of UPA , BJP came to power and preaching their ideology of communalism. Now there is no inside out side story about AAP, it is born to fight against atrocities on women, against corruption, against nepotism, against communalism. Now see AAP neither following Marxism or lohia socialistic ideology. But there so many elements who belongs these class of thoughts in AAP. There fore there bound to be difference of ideas. But the aim of AAP is bring a clean governance and and above mentioned issues.It is a beginning of new silence revolution. I never seen in my lifetime such major group of educated people, technocrats, doctors, intellectual social workers joined to one party.I really admire your knowledge and expression of thoughts, but still a advise you go deep in study of our CONTEMPORARY history of this country minutely.

    1st year BA student and expressing the concern? India has hope, youth being part of healthy debate and desiring change - is the only hope for India.

    Idealism - may be. But isn't it the calling? Every product, every system, every being - is asked to refine for better, so that we have an efficient society to tackle the future problems.
    Global warming, food shortage, pollution due to consumerism/commercialism, new diseases - all these are bound to bring in pain. And, to tackle this, we need a collective society, healthy generous minds.

    If desiring to create such human force is idealism - so be it. It is far better than the herd mentality -'we are like this only, Congress is better, NAMO is better, and many such'.

    We want a country which wants healthy development, inclusive growth, space for peaceful personal life and respect for human life.

    More the youth think and participate in such nation building, better it is for the nation.

    These politicians promise the moon so as to be in power. Way back in 1977, to a Time magazine reporter, Morarji Desai promised of eradicating unemployment within 10 years, and today after so many years, unemployment is still as rampant as ever it was.

    I always said that a 'Lioness' with a mane is prettier than a lion with one.

    Anyway, about AAP my thoughts previously expressed in this forum are clearer now:

    How they conquered Delhi is one thing but their immaturity and selfishness is very clear.

    Immaturity and selfishness at promising the sun, moon and the stars to Delhiites without the resources in their hands and then failing to stand by each other.

    Anyway, it seems we will have to wait another 5 decades till a sincere, selfless and mature party comes to the fore.

    Until then for those who wish to stand against corrupt governance:
    DON'T Jump the QUEUE,
    DON'T evade sales tax,
    DON'T bribe government official, DON'T purchase degrees which you have not answered and finally
    DON'T hesitate to question any official you have elected for failing to safeguard your rights.

    Remember it is our failure to question our elected representatives on their neglect of our rights that emboldens them to get extremely corrupt.
