Hail (or heil?) Varun Thackeray!

If the allegations of making nasty communal statements are proved true, it seems that Varun Gandhi has more in common with another political dynasty. Saw a few clips of his speech and almost threw up with disgust. I'm a bit worried about him being barred from a career in politics, though- he may get back to writing poetry full time and my god, is he a lousy poet or is he a lousy poet?

and the worst...he could gang up with kapil sibal and publish 'poetry'

For Rash: He published a book of poems some years ago. I browsed through it and gagged! Sibal's poems were childish but less annoying. BTW the 'sensitive' Narendra Modi's published a book of poetry too. I REFUSE to browse through it!!!!! I want nothing to do with that man!

Varun Gandhi's own dynasty is not untainted - the division of India in 1947, the Punjab problems of the early-1980s, even the growth of the `other dynasty', and many other issues would not have arisen without their being `party' to it.

One day, we hope India will have a population that votes for economic, social and environmentally-sustainable development...till then it will be a game of communal statements v/s appeasement politics.
