Why This Anniversary ‘Kolaveri’?

It is time for big ticket anniversary politics. Anniversaries are ideally made for personal celebration and remembrance. But politicians of all hues have got in the bad habit of politicizing anniversaries. Any democratically elected government primary responsibility is to stay focused on the core issue of governance and not get distracted by the lure of an anniversary score card. The worst thing about anniversary politics in that it encourages trivia and the much talked debate ends up in who has got better lung power. The Tu Tu Main Main syndrome is not good for the voter who has invested faith in the party it has elected to govern him for five years. Jumping to judge any government on a year to year basis is to question the voter who anyway is the sole arbiter of the efficacy of any democracy.
