Another reason for me not to like politics.

Baba Ramdev.

"We clean up our bodies, then we clean up democracy!"

He announced last month that he would found a political party that would field candidates for each of the 543 parliamentary seats in India’s next general election in 2014.

Here is the link to the NYTimes Article.

The man infuriates me. Because in an age of globalisation, where the world is shrinking, he's just going backwards. I shudder to think of what would happen if he was in power.

I shudder.

I am not a ramdev fan, I dont like the guy much, but he believes strongly in his methods, and strong belief in something is worth counting, let it be in wrong things. Though i still despise him :(

But still final question, Mayawati or Ramdev ?

He is on the list. Yes, *that* list which will come in handy when I own a gun.

Mystique,

If he comes to power, you will not be writing here but be in GHOONGHAT and all. Pray he does not.

Take care

@ Tensor: Neither.

@ Esha: yes. yes yes. Not just a gun...a butcher's knife. Or cyanide. Or a torture chamber.

@ jack: Exactly.

What exactly does "fielding candidates" mean?
