Kaun kehta hai ki Aasman mein surakh nahin ho sakta,
ek paththar zara Tabiyat se to uchchalo Yaaron …
Watching the coronation ceremony of Barack Obama as the next US president I realized one thing – in voting for Obama ,people have voted for themselves.In him they have pinned all their hopes and have sought from reality what their dreams have been made of.He is a christian but with a muslim middle name and loves lord Hanuman.The point is that everyone wants a piece of what they believe is their own.
Who does’nt want change ? We want to change our boss,our lifestyle,our government,our education system,our relatives and more often than not our life partners.Each of us lives with a feeling of being stifled,each of us nourishes secret plans to escape one day and never come back or to make everything around us the way we want it to be.
Obama is the panacea for the desperate.For the economy he is a dollar bill,for war trodden Iraq a white flag,for hungry Africans he is their daily bread and for us in India he is may be…Hanuman.
I sincerely wish Obama all the success in his endeavour to make the world a better place to live in and to spare the US of becoming the most hated (not feared as it is the americans who are most afraid) nation on earth.
His success is important as it will be the triumph of a normal working class individual which will set a precedent for “change” across many other countries,including ours.
May The Lord,Allah and Hanuman be with him.Amen !
