Day 125

I know every time I make a promise to write continuously and then I keep silence for days and weeks. But this time I was silent because I was observing the recent turmoil in the Indian political scenario. Still after 62 years of Independence, the memories of Pre-Independence is hauting many Indian political leaders. Yes, I'm talking about the recent turmoil created by Mr Jaswant Singh and his book. It's really very sad to see that the big political leaders in India are still looking at the past when it's the time to see towards the future. I read an article in a leading newspaper about the recent political imbalance created by Mr Singh in his book by commenting on Jinnah, Nehru and Sardar Patel. The article was written by a well known author, Mr Chetan Bhagat. I agree with him that it's very unfair to sack Mr Jaswant Singh in such a fashion from BJP, where he has spent 30 years. I really wonder that why BJP is making so much fuss about this issue? Mr Bhagat is right that the younger generation doesn't bother about Jinnah. No one in youth really cares about Jinnah. What was Jinnah in the late 1920's and early 1930's and his changed form in 1940's is a matter of yore now. In the present time, no one from the youth cares about him. No one can change the past now. So, why so much fuss is there about the things which are totally irrelevent now? We, the people of India, need obloquy for this type of things which are making our elected leaders engaged in something which is nebulous and is going to yield nothing. We need to create a future and a new hisory without bothering much about the past history. It's time to give Jinnah a rest in his grave. No need to dig it again and again.
