Dont feel so bad.. History in India appears to follow a roughly 35 year rhythm. This election will be a reflection of the 84 election
. I still remember, as 3rd 4th grade school children, we booed a bunch of BJP karyakartas who were college students. Such was the mahaul..
Today, I saw on twitter, a bunch of school kids in Varanasi, stuck in a traffic jam and enthusiastically supporting Modi. I was only 'feeling' that this was going to be a landmark election for India. Now, I am certain, it will be a landslide. When you become a hero for school going kids.. elections are over. Party is not fighting the election any more. People are fighting the election.
Modi winning and motivating young kids is all good. I still have 2 T-shirts we printed for him when he visited our city and filled stadium. I'm mostly referring to this thread and what is coming out.
On 84 election, are you referring Rajiv Gandhi landslide win? That is purely sentiment of Indira Gandhi election and no comparison to this year 2019 election. 2014 is watershed year as it is end of Congress in India. I'll think through that rhythm as I have my own cycle (no SP or TDP logo) theories that is different.
It was also great moment for us Telugus as TDP was the largest opposition party in Indian Parliament, I had my squirrel contribution to our Rama.
