About something you must think

Two faced devil About something you must think
Year 2013 in India is very crucial for Indian politics. With general elections approaching next year, all parties have started building strategies to counter each other on vote counts. Various politicians are flipping parties in order to solve their selfish motives and parties are welcoming them irrespective of their criminal background. Politics in India has always been a showy affair. Votes are attracted by politicians through promises and lures made to voters, and they succeed in that. Perhaps India has democracy in its ugliest form. After all, it brags only on largest democracy in the world not on the cleanest democracy.

A story represents the actual condition of Indian electoral politics very beautifully. The story begins with the death of a senator –

After prolonged illness, a powerful senator of a state died and his soul arrived in heaven. The soul is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

St. Peter to the senator's soul: "Welcome to heaven. Just few words before you settle down that we seldom see such a highly dignified official’s soul here, therefore we are not sure what to do with you."

Senator's soul: "No problem at all, just let me in."

St. Peter: "Yes, of course, but there is a little problem. We have our protocol to follow set by higher authorities on me. As per the protocol, you have to spend one day in hell and one in heaven respectively. After that you can choose where you want to spend eternity."

Senator's soul: "O really! Is that the problem you are facing? Than let me solve your problem now. I would like to go to heaven as I have made up my mind to spend the entire time there."

St. Peter: "I am sorry to say that, but we have to follow protocol and you have to go through it without any option."

After the short conversation, St. Peter escorted him to the elevator going deep down to Hell. The doors opened and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. At some distance, there was a club and standing in front of it were all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone seems very happy and joyous dressed in the evening attire. The sooner they saw him, they ran to greet him, hug him, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

Then they played a friendly game of golf, thereafter dining on lobster and caviar. Interestingly in between them Devil was present, who was a very friendly person enjoying with them, dancing and telling jokes. It was a dreamtime for the senator. As soon as he would have realized, the time came to go to heaven. Everyone present their hugged him and waved while the elevator rises toward heaven.

Finally, senator's soul arrived in heaven where St. Peter's was waiting for him. He told that now it’s time to have a taste of heaven.

Next 24hrs passed with the head of state joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time but everyone was stranger over there, so it was boring for the senator’s soul living in between them. After the completion of time, St Peter returns.

St Peter: "Well then, you have spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now it is time to choose your eternity."

The senator thought for a moment keeping his mouth shut, but after few minutes, he answered: "Well, I would never have said it, I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell."

Hearing his answer St. Peter willfully escorted him back to hell through elevators. The senator arrived at the doors of hell and the doors got opened. He was shocked to find himself in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. His all friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags.

This time devil came towards him and dragged him by pulling his neck into the deserted area.

Senator's soul anxiously argued, "I do not understand what is going on. Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and club. We ate lobster and caviar and then danced. We were having a great time. Now all there is a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable."

Smiled the Devil and said, "We were campaigning yesterday…..Today you voted for us."

That is how the electoral politics runs in India. We say that India's next generation is more aware and understand the tricks played by politicians. They cannot be fooled by luring promises made by them, therefore politicians can only get vote by healthy politics.

If this is the awareness, which falls on mere distribution of electronic items, then Indians can only pray to live in any kind of constructive environment. Before preparing yourself to vote, beware and analyse that it may be the same illusionist devil jiving for you. As soon as he will fulfill its motive, he will haunt back to you.
