Dance of Democracy – TN Elections 2016

Cheap politicals stunts will create a bad example for future young politicians. (Next Gen. Politicians). Tamil Nadu is experiencing the heights of cheap political stunts towards May 2016 elections. DMDK’s negotiation tactics,  PMK’s day dream for becoming CM of Tamil Nadu, DMK’s begging attitude for an alliance with DMDK, pathetic unnoticed BJP for no major calls for an alliance, no comments on Congress and other minor parties and finally silent and helpless AIADMK.

Aslo, we got to see few interesting happenings,

  1. PMK’s simple and effective and most needed manifesto ( but from a worse visionary -party head )
  2. Seeman’s NTK with effective and clean manifesto and principles ( not strong enough to win..but a good start if he maintains his stand of opposing Dravidian parties in future elections too)
  3. Vaiko-Thiruma’s MNK with a mix of so-called activists turned opportunists in politics (MDMK, VCK, CPI, CPM). A good decision to join together and may win hearts if they maintain this for 2 future elections at least

Few of the top blunders are as follows ( Dance of Democracy )

  1. DMK’s Namakku Naame Thittam – Heights of political stunt ( got some positive and negative vibes equally ) but a great entertainment through memes ( thanks for that )
  2.  PMK’s “Change Progress Anbumani” and related campaigns in Obama Style promotions from A leader-party head with no clarity and no individuality
  3. Congress’s belief and assurance on winning more seats in alliance with DMK
  4. BJP’s where to go situation and waiting for a last minute call from any of the parties for an alliance
  5. AIADMK’s silent and confused attitude
  6. DMDK leaders crystal clear interviews with blabbering every time and get trapped to the journalist questions ( as the way they wanted ) and for all the enjoyable memes circulated in social media portraying DMDK leader

Apart from all these blunders, the worst was the negotiation talks from all parties to Vijayakanth except AIADMK. TN ppl witnessed historical situations like, a 50+ year old party to beg DMDK for an alliance. Finally got ditched with the decision of DMDK’s standing alone in all 234 positions. But now DMK pitched in for post-election alliance with DMDK with no regrets of getting ditched recently.

More to talk about these wonders and blunders of TN elections 2016. The worst part is, people are left with No effective manifesto, No productive schemes and No sincere promises, No people-oriented principles, No inspiring leader and No hope for growth.

Good luck TN for more wonders and blunders of TN 2016 elections and also for a bright future with inspiring leaders like VK, MKS, AM, JJ.  😉 This too shall pass by. Another election will come and we hope for the best.

Wonders or blunders, Let us VOTE and decide.

Sand language reached many hearts …!

09 th may 09 (Saturday) me along with my friends from a leading Multimedia training company(IMAGE Infotainment ltd.,) were  involved in a awareness campaign on voting. We created few sand sculptures in the Elliot’s Beach (Besant Nagar, Chennai) to create awareness among the public for voting in the final phase of election.

For all of us this was the experience to build a sculpture in sand and it was really a awful experience to build there. It was a bit hard one to make but interesting and every one enjoyed a lot. Even though the climate was around 38 degree on that day…it hadn’t disturbed us because of the involvement . We started at 5.30 am in the morning  and finished at 12.30 pm noon.

Evening I went there at around 5.45 pm and the response was really great and lots of interesting comments from public. Hope the sand would have spoken few words to them and we will be happy at least these sculptures change few minds to vote this time.

Rebuild our nation with votes

3. that Swastika symbol belongs to which political party ?

4. Still election is going on ?

5. You ppl belong to which party ?

6. are you peoples from fine arts college ?

7. Hats off to you guys for this wonderful job…!

8. Every thing is okay, but we have to rethink on the voting system.

9. What does the symbol represents ?

10. Sure We will vote this time …!

11. I will ask my friends and neighbors to vote ?

12. Good work by these guys but useless and its waste of time on voting.

For first time voters

But on an average , almost everyone on the beach came near this sculptures and had a look at it and commented and also took photos with mobile cams etc., It was nice been there by hearing all the comments and reactions. Really a gr8 day and beautiful day in  my life. I thank Mr. Sri Balaji (my visual design guru) for given me a chance to be a part of this.

Wish at least the final phase of election should register above 75 to 85 % of votes.To change the fate of the nation…please vote without hate. Election date is May 13th 2009 (wednesday).
