When it comes to politics, the people in general, see it as a trump card to bring about the necessary changes in society or to put pressure on the politicians during their 5-year term. Then, there are those who happen to be staunch supporters of certain parties and all they expect is the victory of such parties, no matter how beneficial these parties are. On top of them are tough guys who see politics as a â€˜dirty gameâ€™. â€œAll these politicians are â€˜birdsâ€™ of the same feather,â€ they would tell you if you attempt a discussion on â€˜current politicsâ€™.
Of late, I have developed a soft corner for these tough guys who see politics as a dirty game. Even the so-called principled parties who used to place prestige and welfare of the nation above everything else, find a sadistic pleasure in the mud-slinging game. They waste their precious time and energy on allegations and counter-allegationsâ€¦ and our news channels are ready to oblige them by blowing things out of proportion.
Yet, amidst all these din and buzzle, we also see hundreds of highly talented kids and youngsters in various fields and they do get the required exposure through various TV channels.
