Plight of the minorities particularly the Muslims in the current political scenario in India

By Prof . Dr Rameeza. A. Rasheed,

After the victory of BJP in the recent Lok Sabha election all the political analysts are talking about the consolidation of the Hindu votes and fragmentation of minority votes resulting in the massive victory of the BJP . To a certain extent it is true . It is because of the congress led government’s dismal failure to control inflation, corruption and unemployment, the middle class among the Hindus decided to vote for the NDA alliance since they wanted India to become free from a non performing government . They hoped, change of regime might usher in era of change for better India . Even the secular Hindus voted for BJP this time in spite of knowing about their communal agenda thinking, in a country like India which has survived so far on secular principles, the BJP will not be able to push it’s communal agenda if they want to rule India for few decades .The youth of all religious groups thought , the BJP would accelerate growth with employment since they are projecting themselves as corporate sector’s darling and by all means achieve development .The huge flow of funds from the business class enabled the BJP to organise the most expensive and high technology poll campaign unknown in the political history of India .Their campaign managers made full use of the social media .They promised sun and moon and paradise to Indians if they are chosen to rule the nation with majority. The youth were naturally drawn towards them since, the congress which is the main national party could not compete with BJP with the organisation skill and effective poll campaign strategy .Moreover their past record in governance and serious corruption charges became big obstacles in convincing the voters .

From memory's unmapped isles: A poet on alienation - and nature's rhythms

By Vikas Datta,

One of the rather negative aspects of urbanisation is a sense of alienation, of isolation - that despite being surrounded by masses of people, you are quite unlikely to have any meaningful connection with them. And this perception can be felt more keenly at night when walking through teeming or deserted thoroughfares and markets, brilliantly lit or gloomily dark. This motif and its stark imagery have been employed quite a bit in modern Urdu poetry by some big names. But its champion was a most highly-regarded but short-lived poet of rare sensitivity, though his fame in the non-Urdu speaking world may only rest on a haunting ghazal made popular by the unmatched Ghulam Ali.
