New Hope

Yesterday was a memorable day for our country India, one of the largest democracy in the world. Of late the whole of our nation is under turmoil. There is price hike in every sphere of life, unemployment, value of money fell considerably, terrorism, illegal invasions, inflation was at its high, corruption was also at all time high, no safety for women, the government was convicted of one scam after other,. etc etc. In short the government of our country was a total failure. They were not able to deliver or it would not be wrong to say that they were least bothered about bringing any difference. It was like a total monarchical reign. People seemed helpless. 

But for how long can the general public be fooled in a democracy. The people were annoyed. They wanted a change, they wanted a person who would be able to deliver and a leader who would be fearless and lead the people. They, the one whom the ruling party had taken for granted had shown that in a democracy you cannot take everything for granted and that to be in power you will have to deliver.

We, after casting our vote. Picture quality is poor.

The people of India have elected their new leader Mr. Narendra Modi. Their annoyance was so much that they almost wiped out the ruling Congress party from the national scene. They have voted for Mr. Modi's party and have given him more than he needed to form an independent government free of any allies. Now, it is up to Mr. Modi and his team how they live up to the expectations of the people of the nation. We too feel proud that we voted, though our contribution did not help him as his party candidate in our constituency did not win. Still we are happy and content to practice our democratic right.


We, as the citizen of a free democratic country can do nothing but hope that this time we would get a stable government who will work for the development of the country as promised. Else he should not forget that the results can always be vice-versa. Happy that this time the whole nation has come out in huge numbers, fearless of any outcome. The people were desperate for a change. 


There were great celebration in the whole country in the hope of a new beginning. We too celebrated at our home. Lots of friends and relatives visited and long and short distance calls kept us busy the whole day. There were talks of new government, new hopes, disagreements too, songs, dances etc. Akanksha made a cake for the occasion and I prepared many dishes for the guests to relish on.

  3. Although not on such a serious political scale as your country, many voters here in the UK are seeking change. I hope your new leader can achieve what others apparently cannot. Congratulations to Akanksha for making that lovely cake. She does good.

  8. What a beautiful cake Akanksha created. She is such an artist. I'm so glad you were able to elect someone you feel could be a positive change. I've been hearing about the hard times you've been experiencing. The plight of women has been especially sad (and scary) to see.
