A couple of days back (Monday 8th to be precise) I was at my parents house. Suddenly my dad switched on Jaya TV – and I watched the ‘Thuglaq’ annual show – which he does for the Pongal festival. Two great speakers – one was Gurumurthy and the other speaker was Cho Ramaswamy himself.
Amazing speakers – you may not agree with all that they said – but undeniably both have been fantastic crusaders against bad governance and corruption.
Both of them spoke absolutely brilliantly, and the examples of Swiss bank account details, the amounts, the names, the reluctance to prosecute were all laid out well. Gurumurthy spoke more at the national level while Cho spoke of how one family (a big one at that) was s….ing up Tamil Nadu.
Personally I have always been anti Congress – there are more ‘leftists’ inside the Congress than outside it – has been my view. However there are good people in Congress and BJP and that has been a pull towards both. Of course as a kid (in school) I remember cycling for Janata party (we had so much hope about a party which would throw out Indira the dictator of 1975!) …however BJP also disappointed in many cases. Most recently in Karnataka. Sad, but true.
However the corruption cases against the Nehru-Indira- R-Sonia clan is just too much for this country…hmm sorry for getting political! He lamented the spinelessness of MMS (come on he was a bureaucrat), Kapil Sibal saying there was no loss to the exchequer (man this sucks any kid on valuation could have valued spectrum).
For people who can understand Tamil…I hope this program is available on Youtube….it is a must watch. I have to thank my Dad for spotting the program!
There have been a lot of ‘socialism’ and ‘capitalism’ debate on this blog – but the most important thing is to go there and vote! I have made all my money because of ‘free markets’. Remember free markets exist only in a free country where all of us can think independently and make our money work. So if you want to make money in the stock market we need to defend people like Cho, magazines like Thuglaq, Tehelka, etc. – like somebody says ‘I will in all my life not agree with what you write, but I will defend YOUR right to say it’.
Democracy survives and thrives because of people like Cho…it is time we went and supported him…even if we do not agree with him.
Long live democracy….!
