siva kumar , Cosmo...! For prosperity, Is it possible in d Nov, 07 2016

we need perfect politician


As like govt servants # Before (To participate) elections or After elections # politicians should have a screening test (or) at least a training period #  To get some real knowledge, because most of the politicians elected by their charisma.

I don't know about perfection as that is a Utopian concept and it need not necessarily be possible but we definitely do need politicians with broader outlooks and a wide range of problem solving initiatives. In an 'India' with growing differences of opinion on every aspect be it labor, economy, infrastructure, capital markets, education or anything else, we are still stuck with politicians who are only willing to discuss and spread caste and religious propaganda. We would like to know what are the long term views and plan of actions of the politicians on issues that really matter to the average Indian like rising pollution or increasing drug resistance or poor educational outcomes or increasing income inequalities and not just contribute to the polarization of our vibrant democracy. India is a rare country which is performing well on the economic side in the world context yet the Human Development Index ranking are abysmal. Clearly our political leadership is not 'leading' to the right destination. The striking contrast of Indian economy being fueled majorly by private wealth and consumption and high incidences of deaths due to abject poverty speak volumes about how incorrect is our political discourse. Whether mere training or a screening test in a country sick with power distances and love for money and muscle power will lead to any changes is debatable but surely a large scale change is needed. Otherwise we will continue to be the 'jugaad' economy, without any tangible changes in standards of living and overall inclusive development of ALL.

Agree with a lot of your points Nikita but not this one " politicians with broader outlooks and a wide range of problem solving initiatives." In India and broadly in the world, outlooks are driven by personal bias. Typical One man's meat is another man's poison.

Thats why different outlooks are to sit together and debate and that is what democracy is about.

Yes I agree with how debate should be encouraged. That is most desirable for a robust democracy. But sadly the most debated issues in the country have rarely changed in the last seventy years which means either we are debating the less consequential issues or that are points of contention are not worthy of reaching any concrete conclusions. While the reasons for the inefficiency to reach to concluding solutions are debatable, the biggest and most influential platform for debate in India is the political platform and the politicians should take note of this stalemate. Hence the outlooks must be broadened and more dynamic problem solving tactics NEED to be adopted because clearly the existing ones are unable to deal with our ever-present problems.

the point is who decides real knowledge. to solve this dilemma constitution makers banked upon the collective wisdom of the society.

To challenge collective wisdom is to challenge the whole idea of democracy which is completely fine.
