Post and Dots
Reflection, Imitation, Experience
“Although BJP stood second with mere 6 seats,. In , BJP had won just two out of the 42 Lok Sabha seats. In 2016, BJP won 6 out of the 295 seats in . Although BJP has been improving its presence in West Bengal a majority is a long way to go for now!”
The article is starting with a very negative Statement! Anyone can say, there is no scope for another party in West Bengal, except TMC! Which again recalls me of one of my greatest fear and concern I felt almost 20 years ago. I did mention the story of an election hoarding where it was quoted, ” Only Better CPM can replace CPM” and with 3 decades of anti-progressive frustrating obsession by CPM, I felt the fear of being dumped into a growth-less society. When Mamata Banerjee won the West Bengal Election, I felt – change is for good. Last month I visited West Bengal and found the same type of Quotation painted on a hoarding, “Only a better TMC can replace TMC”. History ridicules circumstances sometimes.
Before we suggest what BJP needs to do, first take a look at the West Bengal’s current scenario. CPM erased the word “Congress” many years ago and now, TMC deleted the word “CPM”. There is nothing called CPM in West Bengal except few people who trespassed from East Bengal or East Pakistan (Currently Bangladesh) and managed to have a national identity, Job and local business licenses with the help of CPM leaders. Officially there are no more Maoists or Jharkhand Mukti Morcha. We have only and only TMC and Anti-TMC teams in West Bengal. Election voting machines seem happy with TMC considering the 80%-20% vote share, grass-root level reach via clubs, panchayats and police. Green Cycles, Cheap Rice, better transportation, cleaner Kolkata, increasing real-estate price on paper – 22 seats in West Bengal seems tough to reach estimation for BJP.
SWOT Analysis of TMC
There is a long list of weakness but in politics, threats and opportunities are main players. Whatever Threats or Opportunites TMC has in West Bengal, considered as an opportunity for a BJP or other opposition parties. So, if you are reading this line, please let us know few more points for these two segments.
My Observation: There is almost no chance for BJP in 2019 to win the majority, except Purulia & Jhargram. Let’s elaborate this further. It’s a fact in politics, the regions you win last, have a higher chance to lose them first. WestBengal was green except Maoist influenced regions in 2011. It took time to grasp those areas for TMC and there are more Anti- TMC still waiting for a second power.
My Suggestion to BJP:
I am concluding this faster than expected but the comment section is open for you. Please feel free to let us know if BJP will ever have a majority in West Bengal.
Indian film industry is the source of income for few million people directly to indirectly. From the person who is the investor or producer, the person, who is the marketing head to the person who checks the tickets and assists the people to find out their seats with a torch; everyone is earning their bread and butter depending on this industry. Bollywood award giving events should take few initiatives to assure the quality and originality of Bollywood movies. What about if any film fare award introduces the below categories?
International Khiladi: For the movie, that will perform best in International market. Performing in overseas market is definitely a positive sign for any Bollywood movies. Like My Name Is Khan, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.
Jodi No 1: Any two movies released on a same date and performed perfectly in the market. As an industry prospect such ‘Jodi’s are too much important to lead the industry prospects. As an example, Laggan and Gadar: Ek prem katha; did excellent business after releasing on a same date.
House full: That movie will have maximum number of house full shows. Like, Chennai Express.
Khoobsurat: For best location and camera-work. Eklavya, any doubt?
Dhoondte Reh Jaoge: When a movie get the early rejection from the people. Even critics are negative on review and you cannot find the movie after one week. As an example we can give it to Zanjeer (2013).
Bheja Fry: When a movie is unable to express its inner message clearly to the people or a boring representation. Poor direction and confused screen play or the story was tough to make people understand. Even movie like ‘No Smoking’ was a ‘bheja fry’ movie.
