UNCOMMONNESS OF THE COMMON MAN IN THE POLL SEASON
The first two months of 2014 have been highly productive for the Indian democracy and the trends tell the drought of decades is going to end its inflicting spell.
The ‘Aam Aadmi’, the common man, had never gone beyond the ‘symbolic’ special status of being the fundamental constituent of the independent India. His special status was always limited to the days of elections and the short-lived phase of hallelujah only served the game of the political masters of the country.
So, what are the developments that help us daydream so or push us to think so?
The first two months of 2014 (though the foundation was led in the last month of 2013) have given the common man’s symbolism some vital tools to reflect on the centrality of the common man beyond the mere political symbolism.
- The Common Man
- The Broom
- The Muffler
- The Coughing Common Man
- The Tea and the Tea-wallah
- The Pepper Spray
- So..how well these tools are playing out?
