Aristocratic demeanor of political parties is what really matters if we talk of the forthcoming 2014 general elections. The Election Commission of India has been trying hard to put check on the lavish expenditure on the process of election engineering while the paradox is that the Indian polity is not breathing well and getting away from the chords of values which is unfortunately being a far cry for common Indians.

The tragic part of it is that the aggravating legal games of politics vis-à-vis the gullible minds of aristocrat politicians at the cost of streaming money have brought the Indian values and the identity of the land on the verge of cultural bankruptcy. The authoritarian religion of political dictum under the garb of growth and development has substantially dismantled the very edifice of our belongingness.

This national phenomenon is perhaps unthinkable for the political leaders and the parties on public domain. How deep the wound is on the face of the country is a dark question. The caravan of political leaders in quest of their party victory leave no stone unturned at the cost of lavish amount of expenditure on electioneering. It is possible that millions of workers under MNREGA can have a little more in their accounts for the betterment of their dependents.

What of that huge amount incurred in organizing public meetings or rallies? Can a sizeable part of Indian community afford such political snobbery in the name of democracy?

This hollowness associated with the mindset of the poor community, be it in rural or the urban areas, ignorant euphonious people are flooded to take a glance of the political leaders. How serious are they in terms of questionable moral character of the leaders and the party organizer? Nevertheless, the onlookers or the followers trumping with hollow slogans carry no weight towards their social and constitutional accountability. No way if something ignites the minds of the ignorant towards leveling the grounds of uncertainty and the removal of chaos around us or at least the ruthless rising tendency of demoniac corruption.

Democracy is not a political demonstration; it’s a commitment towards the common cause of a living society wherein lies the truth and simplicity. Put simply, it sounds to be the backbone of our immortal Indian values since time immemorial.

Vote bank is a dangerous organ of election mechanism. It is bound to reckon on the homogeneity and dignity of an individual. This is always threatening to the integral part of democracy. Such a face off of polity works as a slow poison and defames the morality of the land. Though it haunts the minds of millions of Indian community are now getting visible with a swollen sick heart on the threshold of the upcoming Indian democracy. How long does it go: sounds unpredictable with its hegemonic tone?

Glitter of gold juxtaposed with political patriarchy will be in fray to be crowned in the house of people in New Delhi having got all political guts and pride. No matter the national property are the objects for bidding so as to procure and enrich the private bank accounts in the country or out of the country.

What for, then, the people are looking for a potential future leader? Whose mouthpiece is he or she going to be? Ours is the largest democracy of the world. Let’s see and hope that every Indian is an India and no matter that an average Indian has got the tendency of becoming a potential leader. This is the 'moolmantra' of our great 'Gantantra'.
