[Video] Sad State of Indian Politics

A recent Hindu Add (embedded below) depicts how today’s Indian youth see politicians and politics.

It is really a sad affair. A TEDx Deccan talk by Dr. Jayprakash Narayan gives us a glimpse on why this so. His talk was really inspiring. Along with Dr. Shashi Tharoor, he is different from the usual jargon vomiting politicians of India.

Also if you have time, take a look at Ramachandra Guha’s Ten reasons why India will not become a superpower. This talk discusses the reasons why India is doomed to fail, if it doesn’t change its course. Seeing politicians like Jayprakash atleast gives me hope that one day the situation will change.
