Life is strange
One leaves being Middle Class
In Kanyakumari and Komilla
To be marginal, in Karama
Positions vary, material reality dominates
Life is then expressed in exchange rates
Meaning is searched in the falling rupee
As the hurt ego, is soothed by jumping values
JNU is an elite university election in south Delhi. It’s student elections are not the central polls. The BMC Polls in Mumbai are far more significant. Having a powerful alumni base with a grip on media, does amplify the narrow outlook, but does not scale up its significance. Media should be covering more grounded issues, but Khan Market for a cuppa is nearer.
It’s a good start up incubator for emerging politicians though, and look forward to Dr Kanhaiya Kumar and Miss Rashid contest the 2019 polls.
