KEJRIWAL AND BHAGAT…..
                                  THE SELF PROCLAIMED REFORMERS
Arvind Kejriwal and Chetan Bhagat are two biggest self-proclaimed reformers.
Both yearn to change India.
Kejriwal  jumped into politics, claiming that nothing could be changed without changing the system. I really respect his ideas and actively participated in his movements until before he declared to form a political party.
And Chetan Bhagat wants to bring revolution by making the youth of the country to be conscious about the affairs prevailing in the country and be vocal and actively participate to bring about a change in the scenario.
Both of them got substantial success to feel encouraged.

People's verdict in the Loksabha polls must be an eye-opener for Arvind Kejriwal. Now that the people of the country have shown him the mirror of realism, he has time to rethink where he went wrong. 
The outcome of the Delhi Assembly elections surprised all political pundits. People voted for their faith in Kejriwal that was a clear cut indication of how desperately they want a change.
However, his 40 day stint as the chief minister of Delhi revealed profusely that though his intentions are noble, he may have chosen an appropriate path but he has no concrete strategy to execute what he professes.
One may feel wary of his accusing and ridiculing the two prominent parties as every citizen of this country know every bit of what he screams from a public platform. People know everything.
In my view, it is fritter away energy. As an advocate of the true democracy or ‘Swaraj’, he must be focusing on the ways and methods of mending what he thinks needs rectification. He should act and let his work speak for himself.
Chetan Bhagat, seems to know what young India wants. He maintains that he has experienced and researched why and where we lack to prosper as a country. 
Again, his ideas were great, motives are noble, thoughts were inspiring, but I could festoon his ideas, motives and thoughts with inhibitions and apprehensions only after reading his non-fiction book ‘What Young India Wants’, which I found motivational.

In all his fictional creations, the path he advocates for the Indian youth to pursue is more about coaxing them to come out of the cultural cocoon of the Indian values.
But do noble ideas really need garnishing with pornographic language?
Are painting rosy pictures of college life, girls and boys sleeping together in IIM hostel is a way of bringing Renaissance?
Is glamorising sex before marriage is the only way out to reform this country?
Those who have read his books really think that steamy scenes were demand of the story?
I may sound feeble-minded, but it’s certainly not prejudice if I say that he could have avoided them.
His book ‘Three mistakes of my life’ was found on the bed-table of the diseased child Arushi Talwar.
I think he needs to be more responsible for he himself has chosen to be a role model for the generation who will hold the reins of this country.

  1. I agree with you in some points, mainly the Kejriwal's portions but the Chetan Sir's. I am little upset with your disdaining attitude towards him, spurred you to tag him as self-proclaimed reformers. I will suggest you to Google regarding his charismatic achievements before commenting on him.

    Coming to the 'pornographic-language'.. If it happens in reality, what is so hushed up about it. We should discuss sex more openly to demise the wrong curiosity among the young people of India...
