Who said Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi get to have all the fun trying to bite each others' heads off? While we have read and heard a lot about the social media machinery of the Congress and the BJP burning the midnight oil as they try to expand the nation's vocabulary of satire and come up with Twitter-approved literary gems like 'Feku' and 'Pappu', there are actually people with more cunning and more time giving the organised propagandists a run for their money.
While it is absolutely mindboggling that someone has time enough to sit and create stuff like these, they cleverly bring to virtual life what a lot of us think.
Say for example a website that promises to familiarise you with the plans Narendra Modi has for the country. Even the staunchest Modi fans will have to admit that Modi, in his speeches has eloquently spoken about everything that the Congress has not done for the country and everything he has done for Gujarat.
Rarely, does he speak about what he intends to do if he were to run the country. In his speech in Pune last day, we did get some glimpses of his plans - but those were mostly casual statements, made to underline the Congress' faults, and made no concrete assertion of his roadmap for India. So, probably in response to his relentless advertisement of Project Gujarat, some wise guy came up with this. Called, www.narendramodiplans.com, you just need to click on the link to see the fun.
And before Modi's fans jump up and start crying foul, there's something for them too. This website. While the nation sits and wonders what makes Rahul Gandhi leader material, what made the Congress to promote him to such a high rank in the party, some smart political analysts in cyberspace came up with this answer. At the risk of spoiling a bit of fun, we can say that the website doesn't try to explain how deeply layered a metaphor 'beehive' was for India.
Let the fireworks begin!
