Sow­ing Seeds of Em­pow­er­ment

This refers to ‘AAP Has To Choose Im­por­tant Over Ur­gent’. A fledg­ling AAP had cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of the people with a cache of 28 seats in Delhi and the elec­torate had ex­ulted at its vi­car­i­ous em­pow­er­ment against en­trenched polity. Our much flaunted demo­cratic ethos may yet be dif­fi­dent to en­cour­age fresh en­trants to pol­i­tics that has re­mained a pris­oner to the close-knit co­terie of po­lit­i­cal en­ti­ties that lay claim to rep­re­sent people. Seed­ing people’s em­pow­er­ment is no mean achieve­ment for a small group of de­ter­mined cit­i­zens in just two years.
