Last week, NXg published the speeches of Omar Abdullah and Rahul Gandhi to highlight a vision of an India above party politics and communal divides, not to highlight the two young politicians as personalities. Amid the strange paucity of responses, some struck a negative note as well. We publish here a few of the letters.
The reason for India still being a developing country is corruption, which now has a seat in the Parliament. India needs the right people in the right slots in the government. We have certainly moved on despite improper governance, corruption and terror. And it’s time for those who run the nation to think beyond political affairs for the betterment of the country.
Sadhana.S. Balaji B.E.
Nowadays politics is a family business. The only way to move ahead is to educate school students about politics, elections, communalism and corruption. If everything will change from the school level, we will get educated politicians who care for our nation.

Please publish articles about people who have come up because of their own efforts and not because their grandparents were great people. Who would these people have been today if not for their “famous” families? What have they achieved on their own that we should get inspired by them? I am not for any political party, but I do believe in supporting sensible leaders, not the ones who can’t survive without their surnames.

Sadly, India is mired in civic indiscipline, unabated corruption and parochial ideologies. From this cauldron of social chaos and parliamentary pandemonium, two brave voices of reason have sounded a clarion call. Omar Abdullah and Rahul Gandhi reflect the hope and aspirations of youth lost in the whirlpool of an emerging socio-political disorder. If India does not pay heed, it will crumble under the yoke of its socio-economic disparity, communal conflagrations and inner contradictions.
