BJP has really begun to scare me...Mr. Advani with his shining pate and half smile has begun to stalk me. Anywhere i go,there he is. Their Ad campaign in Delhi is really gloomy-with pictures of children crying and working to pay off their fathers' debts. I know it is a part of the Indian reality but it has always been a part of it...under EVERY government.What is really pissing off are the text messages I am sent-asking me to watch Advaniji speak on blah blah and blah on this or that channel.
I'm not anti-BJP...it's just that the Congress posters dont scare me as much as the BJP ones.I hate the very concept of advertising one's propaganda like this.
What they dont realise is that, I'm not interested in watching these ads.How can we choose people who will manage the country in the same way we choose our shampoos,detergents and body creams?!
Thanks to the hobos who constitute the committee that draws up voters' lists, my name hasnt been included in either the Delhi list or the Calcutta list. Maybe you should stop smiling down at poor souls like us from those disgusting posters and do something to solve REAL problems.
For once and for all, Mr. Advani (and all the other khadi-clad half smiling wannabe PMs), STOP stalking me around.

P.S: I really want to contest the elections sometime in the future...my mother burst a vein laughing at that.but i'm serious.

Hmmm. I agree with you :) Even about wanting to contest elections sometime, I must confess I've wanted to too. Are you going to be able to vote? this time?

Best of Luck for the time when you stand for an election ...

As for BJP and congress, I would take hypocrisy over fundamentalism any day.

P.S. I too,am going to be standing for elections one day, so be warned never to come in my path. Watch out for Pavan Madhini.

ah well... got a scrap on orkut requesting vote for congress this morning. i think, this is carrying campaigning too far, and there should be regulations which do not allow politicians to propagate their message by invading our personal space...
and good luck with standing up for elections. convince me n i'll vote for you... else, i'll stand up too :P

1. Oh, contest elections ??? Great! We need more like you who "actually want to" do it rather than the scions who are forced into it as if it were some family business - this little work of managing the country.

2. You can have your name in the voter-list easily by writing a fiery article on the irregularities. Gopalaswami would really have something on his hands then.

3. I wonder from where you dug up my URL. I don't see it on your blogroll though. :P

4. If it's elections and candidates that are bothering you, you might find echoing sentiments on my other blog i.e http://caesar-caesar.blogspot.com

Now, that's what I call aggressive advertising. :)

p.s - WV says "cones". Blogspot knows when its summer in India it seems.

I find Politics in India to be a big farce although I am keeping a watch on Meera Sanyal. Hers would be an interesting story.

The Mad Girl said...

Oh well! Posters and messages are better when you compare them to the street-speeches that the parties here in kolkata organise. I mean, you can not se the posters, delete the messages, switch the tv off! But how can you stop the screaming woman's voice from assaulting your ears, when you are stuck in a traffic jam(of course she's the one responsible for the jam) for fifteen painful minutes!! and you know what sucks? The fact that I'm on the voters' list but can't decide on a suitable candidate, coz each seems worse than the other! Talk about a democracy!!

Gypsy said...

I hope you are able to fulfil your ambition sometime - all the best with that

The hoardings in Kolkata of Trinamool and CPM show blown-up pictures of charred people.

Even I was a victim of BJP's SMS campaign. But the high point was receiving one from BSP!

Want to contest elections? It'll cost you at least Rs. 10,000. If you're super-rich, sponsor me as well. :D
