Why do Elected Political Leaders in a So-Called modern day democracy like ours behave like they are kings ready to dole out largesse to the Public at large?
As we are approaching General Election season, Karunanidhi in his typical feudal fashion and Pannayar-Attitude announces Rs.2 a Kg of Rice through the PDS. Who the fuck is he kidding? Where does he get the right to take tax-payer money and spend it out on subsidies? Who gives him the right to take out tax-payer money and dole it out on TV Sets to every single household in TN?
The audacity of the political class is only matched by the ignorance and dumbness of the TN-people - us. If you look at general make or break issues in elections in TN - Tamil Language, Support for Eelam, Subsidies and Freebies and thats it . Thats it.
The fault is with the people more than the Politicians that exploit them as such. Tamilnadu people are like dogs running after biscuits. Naayinga. At least street dogs are better. Theru Naayikku 5 Arivu dhaan. It can be excused for thinking the way it does. But, Tamil Makkal - we are another class altogether.
I doubt if there is more than one arivu in us. The Salivating-Arivu(Sense of Smell that makes us secrete fluids from our mouth). As soon as a politician gives freebies that is enough to sway an election. Maananketta Jenmams is what us Tamil Makkal are.
What about issues like Healthcare(the condition of the Public Health Centers), Education, Emergency Medical Services, Basic Roads in decent condition(Am not talking about GQ-quality roads), Law Enforcement(outlaws and their in-laws make our laws today)?
As long as Tamil people are given a TV-Set and some stupid Emotion-Milking TV-Serials running all day, we are happily intoxicated!!
