President of India Poll 2012

Is it right on the part of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam to ignore the aspiration of millions of people who want him to be the first citizen of India again?

India is undergoing a kind of leadership crisis.  The country is run by a few core leaders whose time is mostly spent in managing the frequent uncertainties in the political and economic front.  Whether we call it fortunate or unfortunate, the views and acts of opposition parties are mostly critical of the ruling party weaknesses or stalling of the democratic proceedings than playing any constructive role in nation building.  The saying ‘of the people, by the people, for the people ’ lost its democratic meaning.

While the political situation is treading such a sensitive path, the intellect of the country is maintaining absolute silence.  We hardly see the role of intellectuals in addressing the challenges or in supporting the ruling government.  The struggle of Anna team probably lost its direction.  As a matter of fact the approach and the methods of team Anna Hazare may not bring in desired change for the very reason that laws alone can never solve societal problems in a democratic setup.  If we need a change it should emanate from within the individuals who are the root cause for a corrupt environment.  Accusing politicians alone for the situation is similar to blaming the pipeline that carry contaminated water than addressing the root of the contamination.

Anna team should educate young generation and the children of parents who are a part of the governmental system.  Children should be impressed upon the need to hint their parents [who are a part of the government system] to be away from corruption and dissuade unethical practices in the system wherever they are inherent players.  Take the example of Shah Rukh Khan who tendered apology to audience in a recent Wankhede Stadium episode only upon the suggestion of his family and children.  Children have the power to influence their parents.  It is important to eradicate ill at the very root level before hitting the branches.

The Presidential poll has added further fuel to the flame of uncertainty.  We find opinion divide in every collective group. In this fluid situation millions of people desired Dr. Kalam to be the first citizen of India.  The feeling of people is more genuine.  People want a person who is the cleanest in the country, who is the reflection of intellect in the country, who has the proven stature in the country and beyond all who is humane and concerned about young India.  Dr. Kalam is the person who consistently motivate young generation and who is the most admired person by the younger generation.  A person of such stature ought to be the first citizen who can do better being in power.  It is the question of amount of benefit that he can reach to the country being in power notwithstanding his intellectual contribution otherwise.

As an intellectual and as a leader who can carry the burden of people’s confidence, it falls upon Dr Kalam to understand the wishes of people and accept to be the first citizen of India again.  It may be that the present ambiguity in the political choice related to Presidential Poll is discouraging him to contest.  But all this can be cleared with his firm willingness to contest for the Poll.

Let us hope to see the cleanest intellectual as The President of India in the ensuing Presidential polls.

    In my concern, Dr.A.P.J Abdul Kalam is one of the famous intellectual person in the Universe, millions of people genuinely wants him as a “First Citizen of India” again, he is the power to our nation, & etc…

    What I want to say is “even though he ignores the aspiration of millions of people who want him to be the first citizen of India again, he is the person who can ready to give his best efforts to our nation day and night with out the President post, he is always an asset to our country”. Now I feel that with the absence of Dr.A.P.J Abdul Kalam and Anna Hajare like intellectuals what’s about our country’s growth? We have to change structure of politics immediately……….

      Politics, the only place on earth where right is wrong and wrong is right! Every party has its own motto, some look for survival,some for letting down other parties,some for their own benefits. Even in the muddy water of politics there are lotus flowers which grew and contributed to such an extent that their existence has become mandatory. As an example Dr.Kalam. The voices of the intellectuals are being lowered by situations.

      I look forward for a future where i can say that my country is a developed country, and that could be possible only if we choose our leaders wisely!

    Pranab Mukherjee the thirteenth president of India, and the first person from West Bengal. Winning with a margin of more than 400000 over Sangma evidently proves Pranab has 70 percent of support from all the parties. On contrary Sangma coins the issue of cross voting for his defeat on BJP’s home ground Karnataka. May the insightful profess of our president be able to codify the development of our country and may used to relegate the blockade of success in our country!

    The President is a brand ambassador of the country. Hearty Congratulations to Pranab Kumar Mukherjee for getting elected on Sunday, July 22, 2012 as the 13th President of India. We have great expectations from you in leading the developmental activities in our country, eradicating illiteracy, generating employment opportunities etc. I think you deserve it. With your prolonged experience in Indian politics and holding many important and key portfolios, we hope you will be able to prove your worthy.

    Yes, I feel that it is right on the part of Dr.APJ AbdualKalam to ignore the aspiration of people who wanted him to be the President of India again. I strongly feel that a great person like Kalam should not waste his precious and productive time in politics.
    When offered to contest again for the president role, Kalam rejected it by saying “I have considered the totality of the matter and the present political situation, and decided not to contest the presidential election 2012.” By this it means that the time of a person like Kalam should be utilized more for Research and Inventions rather than spending it in politics.
