Joining a movement called AAP

12th January 2014 will be remembered by me for two things, firstly for Swami Vivekanand Jayanti and secondly for joining a movement called AAP.

I have always been with the Movement of India Against Corruption, the Jan Lokpal Andolan and the entire wave of the common man standing behind the Man 'Anna Hazare'.

Having observed since a few years the way Arvind Kejriwal and his supporters have been going,the results they got, surprising themselves,and being forced to form a 'Political group and platform' to achieve the goals they have set; I am mighty touched,happily surprised and driven to help these 'young and new' people, who citizens of India,without caste,creed,political or economic bias.I suddenly remembered 2 things:- one the famous quote from the Bhagvat Geeta;

 Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya Glanirva Bhavathi Bharatha,

Abhyuthanam Adharmaysya Tadatmanam Srijami Aham'.

and Swami Vivekananda's words:-

“Arise,awake,stop not until your goal is achieved.”

I became a member of Aam Aadmi Party having felt like one all my life. Having studied Political Science and Public Administration in order to join the Indian Foreign Services , it was my misfortune ,due to my Father's Political career ad my Grandfather's health, that I could not do so.

"Politics" so called has been a part of my life since childhood.I was 6 months old when My Father was voted to the MLA status.and there started a career wherein he reached the highest seat of MP and a chairman of PUC (Public Undertakings Committee).

He was originally a 'Die Hard Communist',but then all the best of people and intelligentsia was picked up by the Congress and it's leaders, and taken help of in building "Free India". 

AAP is no "party' for me. It is a Movement as I earlier mentioned.It is the feeling of the common man who feels there is a great "Betrayal" by the 'Indian Politician' and it's system of the Democratic process of " Government by the people,of the people and for the people".

The Quality of the Politician ad his politics has been seen deteriorating by Me since the last 57 years in front of my eyes..The treatment of Political Posts as their personal properties or family possessions is a sad and vulgar example.The "national spirit'', the pride of being Indian is so missing and the sentiment of "Tyaag" or public/social service and upliftment ,has been taken so ordinarily/loosely and made a pity feels sad.

"Making fools of the common public and under all misconstrued claims looting the public funds"
 The Citizen looting fellow citizen is so rampant and frustrating!

This was felt by the "genuine" common man but he thought all these Politicians with thick skins would not yield and change their ways. When The "media" helped the common man to see from the Rallies in New Delhi by 'Anna' ... he decided to "don the Gandhi cap" the Gandhian ideology in a way...and fight these power brokers by getting into Power themselves. 

Here I only pray that Media should play a very responsible and unbiased role if India as a Nation has to be made proud and thereby improving our stature and respect in the eyes of the world.

The child is just born, it crawls and will slowly stand, no magic will help but "time and patience'' will see it grow into healthy and pure 'human being'.

The opposition is slowly coming out of shock and so is AAP... we are listening to and watching 'proof' every new day.I wish that 'Makarsankranti'
Makara means Capricorn Zodiac Sign and Sankranti means transition of the Sun from one zodiac sign to another. Thus Makar Sankranti is the day that marks the transition of the Sun into Makara rashi (Capricorn) on its celestial path.
