The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

The intensifying electoral fever is giving us interesting (amusing, funny) throwaways and the pitch is getting louder with every passing day of political fiefdom on its ugly display. It is in perfect harmony with the benchmark of the electoral phase of Indian politics - a hallmark of an insensitive class of politicians.

The electoral pitch has become entertaining enough for those who watch the proceedings of the biggest festival (spectacle) of a democracy – elections - to ‘recruit’ the representatives to work for the common man and so for the country.

And the churning from this display has started throwing away its regular, expected throwaways – the spillage from communication practices being exploited – the leftover from the ideological dump being explored.

Let’s take a look at some of these routine throwaways:

  • The process to render the norms - to speak-up in public following the practices of maintaining even the bare minimum of the probity values – completely irrelevant is well on the way to achieve its pinnacle. Expect it well on the highway of ‘no holds barred’ communication spillage by January 2014.
  • Facts are fast becoming fastidious, the way it happens. The electoral pitch of Indian politics confines facts to the extremes of ‘what is being said from the dais’ only.
  • Such ‘facts’ are producing their effects for the ‘stakeholders’ as desired – the spillover is making the concerned watchers even more studious as these self-made facts are.
  • As has been the cases, as expected, egregious interpretations of such ‘facts’ are already ruling the roost. In the electoral phase of Indian politics, whatever said from the dais is meant to be what the opponents seek to interpret as and exploit further, and so in turn, mutually helping the ‘speaker’ and the ‘interpreter’.
And! The result?

We, by now, have an established channel to have us the regular dose of funny, bluffy and interesting throwaways in the latest event of the Indian electoral process.

One can debate if it is to be termed auspicious or ominous, but for sure, the coming days are going to be full packed houses stuffed with ‘overstuffed’ shots of such facts spoken and their spillovers interpreted, giving us, thus, more than enough moments of sitcoms.

And these elections have one additional, super-special effect to affect the overall process of communication spillage, making things even more watchable, even more readable – the Narendra Modi Vs Rahul Gandhi duel – scaling new highs with every rally held.

So! Keep hooked!
