A New Dawn - Hopes, aspirations and expectations

Today was a very special morning. After all, so much have happened and changed in last 24 hours.

Yes – election results are out. India has spoken – loud and clear.

After yesterday's dream election results, sleep was sweeter and morning was calmer. Though there is a sudden loss of anxiety and curiosity, which has been replaced with a sense of fulfillment. This is the exact vacuum you would have felt after finishing your last exam of engineering.

Life has a strange and at times, surprising way to payback. Exactly 5 years ago, on 17th May 2009, I was writing my thoughts with a heavy heart and disappointed mind after election results were out. Today, 5 years down the line, exactly on the same date (17th May), I am writing this post with a sense of fulfillment and joy. In fact, I am not able to stop smiling since over 45 hours, when initial trends started pointing towards a historical win for the BJP and NaMo.

Last 45 hours were filled with tremendous joy, a sense of disbelief, uninterrupted FB updates, phone calls to friends and families, screaming, punching in air, talking endlessly with like minded people and just enjoying each and every moment!

Without any doubt, we must applaud India’s voters, who raised about cast and creed and overwhelmingly poured their love and trust on NaMo. What we must appreciated is voters sense of judgement to mark a clear difference between local elections Vs national elections and voted accordingly. Hats off! Take a bow!

Last evening, I loved NaMo's speech at Ahmedabad – especially his reference to not limiting himself to just one term but ensuring repeated terms. That is exactly what he did in Gujarat and that is exactly what we need for this nation.

Now a mixed bag – On one hand, as a Gujarati, we are losing the most phenomenal Chief Minister we ever had and we always loved but on the other hand, there is a pride in offering our Chief Minister to the nation as a Prime Minister to solve impending problems. A sense of loss and pride you see :-)

While NaMo can bring life to a dead body with his inspirational words and actions, our current (or previous, whatever) Prime Minister Dr. Singh had an ability to turn a living being in almost as useless as a dead body with his utterly uninspiring speech, body language and leadership style.

We surely need a leader who can inspire. Who can lead. Who can involve people in nation building and who can bring a sense of pride in each and every citizen. We need to build a nation which is confident, capable and can look at the word – eye to eye. That starts with the leadership and for a change, we have got it.

The biggest democracy in the world has arrived. 

P. S. : 
रावण वध के लिए राम सेतु बनाने में अपना सहयोग देके छोटी छोटी गिलहरीओ (squirrels) को जो संतोष मिला होगा वही संतोष आज हम सब को मोदी जी की जीत से मिल रहा है

भले ही छोटा हो पर हम सब ने अपना अपना कर्त्तव्य निभाया है.. online word spread करके, आसपास के लोगो को मोदीजी के लिए वोट करने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करके, अपना खुद का वोट डाल के और भगवान से ढेर सारी प्रार्थना करके

Moreover the great thing happens "END OF DYNASTY POLITICS". People clearly reject the dynasty. Now congress should do real introspection and come out of GANDHI tag.
