When foreign evaders came and took over Indian land, we were the richest of all nations. "Dal Dal pe Sone ki chidiya karti hai basera". But we were looted by foreigners and all our wealth was looted out to other colonial countries.
Are we heading for the same situation where the whole country is outsourced to work as per the blue print of USA ?,not because our countrymen are anyway less patriotic;
not because our military force is not strong;
not because our industrialists are willing to sell the country;
but our politicians at the top are Economists and not statesmen.
The bottleneck is at the top of the bottle.
A statesman needs to be - really good in History, foreign policy and strategic international relations. He should understand the concepts like "Balance power".
He should be ambitious like Mr. Winston Churchill to make his country rule the whole world. He should be tough in decisions when it comes to show our military metal like Sardar Patel did. He needs to be sensitive to the problems of common people like Gandhiji was,
he should understand the people's pulse like Indira Gandhi or Nehruji.
He should be proud of the country. He should be patriotic. He should be one amongst the countrymen who has lived with them in their good and bad weathers. There is no room in politics for international bureaucrats who when become old, come back to the country, and get good posts as retired benefit schemes.
Why Shashi tharoor is Pardoned again and again? Why do people who oppose Nehru, Indira Gandhi are easily getting to join their very political party? They are traitors in congress and traitors in country. Manmohan Singhs, Montek singh Ahaluwalias, Shashi Tharoors should start their own party and try to win elections, if they want their way.
