Lalu tries to show that he is Robin Hood, but he must realise the current position of world. We should change our thinking with the change of time. In the time of media freedom, we should keep mouth close when you have little knowledge. Try to change thinking with the change of time, and it was greatest mistake of lalu babu, who always try to be a little kid and definetiley he will be get place in the book of kid as a joker
Dewanji has not observed anything that a Bihari does not know, experience and suffer.
To the comfortable homes of Delhi, he could add plush smoking rooms in New York, LA, San Francisco and London, among others for example, where "Biharis" love to hate Laloo while they sip their Scotch and Cognac! As if that were not enough, now there are numerous discussion groups on the Internet, where, in language that needs a lot of help, people lament or express wishful thoughts about "revolution". Their words in the cyberspace evaporates.
That indeed is the tragedy of Bihar. But what people like Dewanji contribute is elevating Laloo to a "media star". Laloo loves the publicity and exploits it to the hilt, the opportunist that he is.
A required reading : "Making of Laloo and Unmaking of Bihar" by Sankarshan Thakur.
Please stop providing the destroyer of Bihar any more publicity. Bihar does not need it. It truly adds insult to injury.
Why blame Lalu Yadav's of today. The greatest brand marketing excercise was done by Mr. M. K Gandhi who coined the word "Harijan". This enabled the Congress to keep the caste divide for over 5 decades. Reservations card is the name of the political game. BJP plays the Hindutva card and tries to unite the Hindus the Congress calls them Communal force.Dr. Ambedkar, Babu Jagjivan Rams achievements are always mentioned with their caste lineage. Mr. Sushil Kumar Shinde is sent to Andhra Pradesh as the Governor the CM welcomes him by speaking to the press about his caste credentials and not administrative credentials. Mr. T Anjiah is made the CM of Andhra Pradesh his caste is splashed across in the media release by the Congress. The Highest office of the President of the country is maligned by caste and religious lineage. Mr. K R Narayanan on assuming the office of President of the country the Congress Party states that his caste credentials enabled him to become the President of the country. Congress Party has architectured and built up the caste divide and built up the ills thereof. Why blame the Lalu Yadav.
I felt it a moving account, with apt narration. After a long time, this was the article I engrossed into, forgetting myself & surroundings. And in fact, this is the first ever comment I post in rediff, in all the 6 years, I have been part of rediff.
Hi Now the time is changed & one should look further for development.The first feeling should come only for country like the reporter has said "I am Indian".These politicians should be scrapped.There should be a retirement limit for every politician & maximum tenure to be as a chief minister or prime minister (max.10 years).Chances should be given to new blood who is having at least a feeling for his country.These OLD POLITICIANS doesn't seems to have any kind of soft heart for the great country like ours.
Dear Mr Diwanji, I am not sure whether you belong to the lower castes, but you certainly speak what the lowercastes have in their heart, which unfortunately never gets any playing in the writings of the manuvadi media. Keep up the work.
