Aam Aadmi Party

Is this the first sign of a revolution in India? Demographics tells us that a country with such a young population would find the message of one Arvind Kejriwal more appealing - that 'let us clean the mess created by Congress'.

More and more common Indians are seeing through the game of Congress - to keep tolerating corruption - and they want to get rid of it. Indira Gandhi famously dismissed 'corruption' as an urban elite phenomenon. Whereas Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi completely miss the point that most Indians are sick and tired of this 'corruption' and they hold Congress as singularly responsible for this state of affairs. We all know many other parties than Congress are responsible for continuing the corruption too; but the lion's share of blame goes to the Congress Party.

Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi never had the aptitude or political senses to realize that Indians want to change and Indians are sick and tired of this 'corruption'. All of those MGNREGA and other fancy schemes - we have seen that film too often; that is what most Indians think.

Rahul Gandhi simply does not have the aptitude to 'read' these signals from common Indian folks while Dr. Singh is completely lost; if only appointing a James Bond central banker would solve ails of India. Of course, real world and real economy are not that simple.

If Arvind Kejriwal and his party are able to build on this initial success; one can truly say India has turned the page. This is a momentous occasion to make 'corruption and transparency' as the central electoral issue in India. Arvind Kejriwal has pulled off a giant change here.
