The world is not going to end if Mr. Some body opts out!


There is a story. It was narrated by Ram Riksh  ‘Manhar’, a renowned Hindi poet, long back in a Kavi Sammelan held in State Bank lawns at Kanpur (U.P., India). There was an ad given in the press for the post of an Accountant with the post graduate degree in commerce having at least ten years experience of working in a nationalised bank as the requisite qualification. One of the candidates replied in the negative for all such qualifications confirming that he was simply a matriculate without knowing any thing about commerce, and that he had no kind of any experience of working in some bank or the other even for a single day. The interviewers asked him ‘If that is the case, what for you have come here?’. His reply was ‘Look, I have simply come here to make it abundantly clear to you that you just don’t depend on me for the post’.

So is the case of Rahul Gandhi. He is repeatedly telling the people on a drum beat that he is not going to offer himself as a Prime Ministerial candidate of the country. So what?. There are millions of unemployed youths in the country in search of a job for them. After all, there is nothing like any minimum qualification laid down for becoming the Prime Minister of India. Any one, even a non-matriculate, or even the one who doesn’t know three alphabets of a language, can occupy most covetous a position as a Minister or even Prime Minister. Thanks to the rules and laws of the country. The scion of Gandhi dynasty, Rahul Gandhi, should feel rest assured that his opting out from the race of Prime Ministerial candidates is in no way going to hamper India’s cause; it rather smoothens the cut throat competition for the top post paving the way for those who are really much more eligible and competent in tangible terms to occupy the most covetous a position in the country. He need not indulge in more of a drum beating on this count.

  1. Sir, this was the reality in banking industry also .people who were rich and having some reputation in the area used to appoint their boys in the banking branches without any exam/ test, the only qualification of the candidate was ,he is nominated by the so called commander of the area and the qualified boys use to be away from the service./employment.sir our country is now having the highly qualified persons to run the country but do not get the chance ,The system has become so costly and defective that an ordinary or honest person cannot think of joining the politics. ,rest the example given by you is absolutely true and correct.at present we need a better and good prime-minister to run the country and not from the congress/ B.J.P.or some other minority supported parties but it should be from the general public who can think for the public and work for the public our present system is very corrupt and should be rectified ,there should be two party system and from one party there should be . only one time term for the prime-minister for five years and next term another party candidate should be the prime-minister.and that is also from the direct public choice.and not a corrupt person.

  2. Sir The politicians do not speak straight way. They have dual tongue. Rahul Gandhi is now a politician of the Congress party where no one can dare to proposed himself for the post of PM. The opting out from the race is nothing but statement given on the lines of the candidate appeared for the interview as narrated in your blog. Perhaps they have read the writings on wall for 2014.
    Sir you have narrated a very much interesting and befitting story very correctly explaining the seat renunciation statement. .

  3. RAHUL GANDHI IS SIMPLY TRYING TO BEFOOL THE NATION BY GIVING SUCH STATEMENTS FROM ROOF TOPS. HE WANTS TO GIVE AN IMPRESSION THAT HE IS NOT POWER HUNGRY OR HAS NO LUST FOR THE POST OF PRIME MINISTER. THIS IS ALL NOTHING BUT ‘NAUTANKI’ , AND THE ENTIRE NATION IS AWARE OF THIS ‘NAUTANKI’.

  5. An other view of mine on this episode of Blog that what Rahul Gandhi is saying has no meaning,in fact he wants to hear the voice from his CHATUKAARS no..no you must please………..like that.

    Long back I had seen a movie in which there was a racket of three persons – Kanhaiyalal and one Mr. Kapoor headed by Om Prakash in the Mumbai Nagar Nigam.Election of Nagar Nigam declared but for the post of Mair K.Lal & Kapoor was fitting with each other.The logic of K.Lal was that marriage of my daughter has been fixed therefore this post is necessary for me – either fair or foul.Then the existing mair Om Praksh said,in the interest of public & party I my self will continue.
