After quite some time, a nice political speech has been delivered. The power of young mind was clearly visible in the text of the speech. I am referring to the one made by Rahul Gandhi at the AICC one-day session, in New Delhi.
The core of his speech revolved around the changes that need to be made to India and also on developing the youth congress as a meritocratic community. A lot has been said by other leaders in Congress and also their peer political parties, about the development activities. But the common man (‘Aam aadmi’ – pun intended) is yet to taste the sweetness of the fruit. In India, plans made for public welfare turn out to be similar to a budget made by a lavish bachelor. A lavish bachelor makes elaborate saving plans at the beginning of a month, but ultimately would find himself with no money on the last week of the month. Public welfare plans are facing the same fate. A lot of vigor has been shown by Rahul in his speech and I would be more than happy if it translate in to actions.
Indian politics is in dire need of young and educated politicians, to get an uplift. Young minds are the source of ideas, that can develop and move the nation into the path of success. Older minds are always needed for their experience, but the younger blood is needed for innovation and action. In this context, Rahul Gandhi’s emergence as a full time politician, sounds good for the Congress. If he succeeds in building a Youth Congress, consisting of people with high attitude and energy, then he would have done a lot of justice to his party.
Rahul – you have expressed your ideas and created huge expectations in the minds of the Indians. We are looking forward to something from you, which might change the face of Indian National Congress! The countdown starts…
