I support power of the 'common man'

Being cynical, being disinterested in Indian politics, being hopeless about 'positive change' in governance...that was me being me! All this hasn't changed - but I am glad that the cynicism, the disinterest and the hopelessness are a bit overshadowed by hope.

For the first time, in my adult life, I am looking forward to a political change-of-guard. I am almost excited about what all can a single-minded vision potentially achieve and correct in this country. For the first time, I see a group of people who seem to be connected with something as basic as ground realities. For the first time, wheels of possibilities - to change & to improve - seem to be in motion.

I will keep this post quite short - though the subject is such that one could write endlessly - debate many sides and end it in ambiguous manner. The only reason I am writing this post is to share my support for the common man. I hope and pray that common sense prevails with both, people representing the common man and more importantly with the common man himself. I hope and pray that this opportunity to move ahead towards improvement in governance is neither wasted nor snatched away too quickly. I hope and pray for my cynicism, disinterest and hopelessness to be defeated!
