Will Mahadev shower blessings on Modi on May 23?

If opposition isn't able to rejig 'short memory' of Indian on the miseries due to noteban and GST, Mahadev will again shower blessings on Modi on May 23.
Narendra Modi

Editorial: Modiji par Mahadev ki Krupa hai! (PM Narendra Modi has Lord Shiva’s blessings) So, please stay away from writing his premature obituary!” was the response of a senior BJP spokesperson to a severely cynical group of actors’ hefty dismissal of the scope of PM Narendra Modi forming the government after 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

At this political gossip session at a get-together in Mumbai early last month, all the rationalists present, including myself, obviously laughed off the manifestation of the strong belief of a devout Hindu BJP spokesperson in his leader Modi, who then seemed to be on a shaky political ground, especially, after BJP losing three states to an erstwhile decimated Congress in 2018 assembly polls.

Days after this forgetful conversation, in an unfortunate incident, on February 14, in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district, our 40 innocent soldiers were killed by a suicide bomber belonging to the Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-E-Mohammed. Subsequently, Indian Air Force struck Jaish-E-Mohammed’s terror camps in Pakistan’s Balakot.

If opposition isn't able to rejig 'short memory' of Indian on the miseries due to noteban and GST, Mahadev will again shower blessings on Modi on May 23.

During this operation, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, IAF Pilot, who, after valorously shooting down Pakistan Air Force’s Martin F-16 by his MiG-21, was captured by Pakistan Army. After detaining Abhinandan for 60 hours, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan got him released as what he termed “a peace gesture.” Recent reports, however, suggest that it was all about the US pressure.

However insensitive it may sound but the fact is that the Pulwama tragedy, valorous combat by IAF in Balakot and the emergence of Abhinandan as our national hero has politically worked in Modi’s favour as ‘Mahadev Ki Kripa’ (Almighty’s blessings). Just before the Lok Sabha elections, the entire political discourse has changed and the BJP has successfully set its election narrative around national security.

The media’s pre-election prophecy (which many claim, was plugged by the Congress to disorient the BJP cadre) about – Union Minister Nitin Gadkari being an obvious choice as the next PM in the wake of BJP not attaining the clear majority mark in Lok Sabha elections – is no more getting space in the national dailies and air time in the news channels.

After being heavily trolled on asking for proofs of 2016 surgical strikes from Modi, Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal is again in soup for his speech on the last day of Delhi Vidhan Sabha’s budget session. “How many soldiers will BJP get killed for getting 300 seats in elections” asked Kejriwal. Similarly, abject questioning of the PM on Balakot casualties by leaders like West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee, Congress senior leader Digvijay Singh and many others have backfired as it’s being projected as questioning our IAF’s brave soldiers.

The painstaking efforts by leaders like CPI (M) General Secretary Sitaram Yachury of bringing back the issues like farmers’ suicide and unemployment in the election narrative don’t seem to be currying favour with the electorate. Rahul Gandhi’s pet issue ‘Rafale scam’ is being relegated to a confused political rhetoric by aggressive BJP leaders across news channels’ debates. Psephologists, who were confident about Modi not making a comeback in 2019, are non-committal to the relevance of their ‘pre-Pulwama’ election surveys in today’s political scenario.

By mentioning the 300 number, Kejriwal has underscored the fear psychosis of the opposition parties that now, national security issue can facilitate BJP’s re-entry into New Delhi’s power corridors. If that happens, rather than Mahadev’s blessings, it would be more because of the opposition’s apathy towards critical political issues like lack of transparency in govt.’s functionality, demonetisation, hasty implementation of GST, etc. It seems the opposition parties have missed the bus by not agitating enough on issues like demonetisation and GST, especially when the opposition’s action was needed the most to pressurise the govt. to get its act together.

Now after Pulwama and Balakot, the election narrative seems to have hardly any space for issues other than national security, even for the electorate. Now, if the opposition parties are not able to rejig the ‘short memory’ of Indian public on the miseries afflicted upon it by demonetisation and GST, Mahadev will again shower blessings on Modi on May 23.

The BR Ambedkar you didn’t know… | BR Ambedkar facts | BR Ambedkar history




Suyash Sethiya | Nagpur

Mahaparinirvan Din 2022 is marked as the death anniversary of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar on December 6. He eradicated untouchability and promoted gender equality in India. Watch to know more about him.

6 दिसंबर 1956 में डॉ. बाबासाहेब आंबेडकर का परिनिर्वाण हुआ था. आज मुंबई के चैत्यभूमि जहां उनका परिनिर्वाण place है वहां पर पूरे india से उनके दर्शन और उनको श्रद्धांजलि देने के लिए हजारों की तादाद में उनके followers पहुंचते है. 14 October 1956 को नागपुर के दीक्षाभूमि में लाखों लोगों को बौद्ध धम्म की दीक्षा देने के डेढ़ महीने बाद ही उनका परिनिर्वाण हुआ था. आज हम बाबासाहेब के उन rights की बात करेंगे, जो women को दिए गए है.

बाबासाहेब ने India में ऐसा revolution किया, जिसके कारण सैकड़ों सालों की ग़ुलामी और छुआछूत से backward classes के लोगों को मुक्ति मिली. बाबासाहेब के इस revolution को इतिहास में सबसे बड़े revolution में से एक माना जाता है. उन्होंने सभी के लिए equality की बात कही और सभी को समान rights constitution में दिए. बाबासाहेब ने women empowerment की बात सबसे पहले कही थी.महिलाओं को कानूनी रूप से अधिकार दिलाने और खासकर ancestral property में हिस्सा देने की बात बाबा साहेब आंबेडकर ने ही की थी.

बाबा साहब ने Constitution में तीन major बातें liberty, equality और fraternity की बात की, जिसमें उन्होंने fraternity को सबसे अहम माना. बाबा साहब भारत की तमाम महिलाओं के liberator
हैं. लेकिन अफसोस इस बात का है कि आंबेडकर को कई classes की महिलाएं ही अपना नहीं मानती हैं. बाबासाहेब ने अपने life में सभी articles के माध्यम से womens की problems को पुरज़ोर तरीके से उठाया था .Riddle of Women, women and counter-revolution, rise and fall of Hindu woman ऐसे कई articles बाबासाहेब ने समय–समय पर लिखे थे. हिन्दू कोड बिल की मांग को महिलाएं कैसे भूल सकती हैं, जिसके ना लागू होने के कारण बाबा साहब अपने मंत्री पद तक को छोड़ देते हैं. बाबासाहेब कहते हैं “मैं किसी भी समाज की तरक्की उस समाज की महिलाओ की तरक्की में देखता हुं.“ जिस समय india में लड़कियों को पढ़ाना भी गलत समझा जाता था और बेटों को ही पढ़ाया जाता था, उस समय कई बड़े -बड़े नेता भी लड़कियों को education और property देने के विरोध में थे. उस दौरान बाबासाहेब लड़कियों को बेटों की तरह ही पढ़ाने और कम उम्र में लड़कियों की शादी न करने की बात अपने articles में कहते थे. बाबासाहेब ने sc,st , obc सभी को अधिकार दिए, freedom of speech उन्हीं की देन है.

नागपुर और मुंबई से उनके followers का ख़ास रिश्ता रहा है और दोनों ही जगहों से लोग emotionally जुड़े हुए है. नागपुर जहां उन्होंने बौद्ध धम्म की दीक्षा ली और मुंबई जहां बाबासाहब ने अपनी अंतिम सांस ली. आज के दिन मुंबई के चैत्यभूमि में मायें अपने छोटे बच्चों को गोद में उठाकर, जिन बुजुर्गो को चलना नहीं होता है, वे अपने बच्चों के कंधे पर हाथ रखकर, बुजुर्ग महिलाएं हाथ में लकड़ी के सहारे सभी बाबासाहेब के दर्शन करने मुंबई पहुंचते है.

Nation Next की तरफ से बाबासाहेब के परिनिर्वाण दिन पर उन्हें भावपूर्ण श्रद्धांजलि
