To paraphrase the tweet that enraged many supporters of Mr. Modi, “Darkness at noon is NaMo (always in the eye of a storm) and brightness at night is Priyanka Gandhi.”

Needless to say that who is more famous between the two. Mr. Narendra Modi has been the elected chief minister of Gujarat for past one decade. There are way too many achievements to his credit. To begin with, the business tycoons are flocking to Gujarat for the investments as the one single man takes all the important decisions promptly. The young population of this country adores him from the bottom of its heart. The kurtas he wears have gone on to become the fashion statements. The head gears he sports have come to be synonymous with the ideas the man stands for.

He is hot favourite to win the race of prime minister in 2014 even without throwing his hat into the ring. He doesn’t believe in politics of appeasement. He takes tough stands on the matters pertaining to national security. He often faces flak from “secular” media for taking the road less-travelled. But here is the man with a steely resolve taking everything in his stride and marching on tirelessly. True to his forward looking nature, rarely do we see him resting on his past laurels. Instead he carries on with the sole agenda of developing the nation as a super power in his heart.

How can such a man be described as the darkness at noon?

Coming to the brightness at night, what qualification does Priyanka Gandhi have to become Prime Minister? Had it not been for “Gandhi” surname, who would have cared to give her a second look? Many a times one often comes across people comparing her to her grandmother god-alone-knows on what basis.

She hardly speaks to the media. Nobody knows whether she wants to become prime minister. She has never been a part of electoral process. In other words, she has never fought election and entered the parliament as the elected representative of people.

She has accompanied her mother and brother on the campaign trails. She has gone to the cricket stadiums to cheer for the Indian team. Agreed that she has got a cute smile and ability to reach out to the crowds by waving at them. If the quality of waving at the crowd alone is enough to become prime minister, the film stars and cricketers will do wonders as prime ministers.

It is against this backdrop of prime ministerial candidature one wonders what meaning the brightness at night can possibly have. Why should the lovers of dynastic rule insist on such a novice for the premier post? What hidden agenda can such an impractical demand serve? The pathetic governance for past eight years complete with the morbid silence of the ruler has done enough damage as of now. To rub salts on the wounds the demand of illusory brightness provider at night be installed as prime minister has only added fuel to the fire.

Whether Mr. Modi is the darkness at noon or brightness at night, the history will judge and tell. But as far as Priyanka Gandhi is concerned, nobody has an iota of doubt with regards to what kind of brightness at night would descend upon the country if she were to become prime minister even for a day.

Wow....!!! This Much Love.....!!!!
