The recent victory of Right forces augurs well for Indian nation. Long under subjugation by foreign forces, the soul of India’s Majority has been suffocating for almost a thousand years now. Whether it is the Europeans or Mughals or even the remnants of colonial forces that were running the country for most of the period since liberation from the British in 1947, the Majority interests, hopes and aspirations have never been given the priority that it deserves. If democracy is indeed the rule by the Majority, of the Majority and for the Majority, it was non existent in India for the past several centuries, except in certain insignificant pockets. In modern terminology India was having an unsustainable form of governance.

The main reason for the subjugation of Majority interests in Indian nation has always been the unorganized nature of its Majority faith viz. Hindu Sanatana Dharma (HSD). Perhaps it is the only faith in human history which has undergone a full cycle of evolution and allows complete freedom for reforms, versions and even revolt. As it stands today, Advaita (Non-Duality) stands out as the most modern faith corroborating well with the challenges posed by the arch rival of all religions ie. Science. But in the social sphere, Advaita supports only individual pursuit of God or Truth as against the organized religions (all advocating Duality) which call for organized and collective bargains to please God and attain entry into heaven. Such forces are bound to win in the race for limited resources by an ever increasing population.

Majority of Indians still adhere to HSD and it is their 'unorganized' will that has been tampered with for so long. The subjugation during foreign rule is understandable. But the systematic sidelining of India’s Majority during the past seven decades based on a wrong interpretation of a single word (Secularism) in Indian constitution is clearly beyond comprehension. The atrocious subjugation has reached its lowest ebb in more ‘literate’ and modern states like Kerala that it is virtually the Minorities that rule. The whole of Indian nation was heading in such a dangerous path when a messiah in the form of Narendra Modi dawned. The fact that he could get a clear mandate with simple majority for the Right forces all alone shows the silent will of the Majority in this ancient nation which sustains the oldest surviving civilization in the whole world. We can only hope that Narendra Modi triumphs in his mission.

Comment Thank you, Sh J Ajithkumar, for a completely new perspective of Sh Narendra Modi's coming to power. But there are several points to ponder over.First, Democracy is a rubber stamp by a majority for a much smaller group to wield power. But the phenomenon of wielding power is never innocent. There is a method in it. And often, the method subverts the system which puts the rulers in power. But yes, democracy has checks and balances which can throw the ruling group out of power too. To manipulate such a possibility, incumbents and aspirants resort to minority politics and the dirty game starts. Second, a majority may not always be right. A majority phenomenon may get reduced to mob frenzy as often happens when impatient people take law in to their own hands. Third, coteries always have vested interests who will covertly and overtly work for personal ends, and not common good. Good people are shy by nature and will give many opportunities to villains before wielding power. Mind you, Sh Modi single-handedly focussed on Development and good governance and fought babble-raisers. How many times he can do that? How many people can do that. Old testament of Holy Bible is replete with such phenomena. But human will be human. Mesiahs coming is sparse. Anyway, your perspective is excellent.
