Do politicians understand ?
Our respected and venerable intelligentsia are screaming nearly for 24 hours on TV and writing hundreds of articles foretelling that we are at a crossroads; passing through a critical time; moving towards the darkest phase of our history etc. Whenever my good luck prevails I take the opportunity to listen to some of the dire forewarnings about the bleakest future of our country.( I am not sarcastic but after listening to them for a while future seems to be really bleak to me). The problem is I have an uncanny feeling that whatever the host and guest of these talk shows predict, the people concerned--the politicians --do not bother at all. May be they do not have enough time to watch TV or read newspapers. But their deputy-cronies (cronies of cronies) should have informed them about what these respected people are trying to pass on .In the Holy Quran, Allah has termed some people as deaf, dumb and blind since they would never take the right path. Unfortunately, I find a lot of similarity between the people mentioned in the Holy Book and our politicians.
This country as a whole wants peaceful transition to a whatsoever elected form of government. The caretakers are also in a hurry to leave the power citadel. Then where is the problem with the politicians? I may sound naive but I would ask why can't they just go to election first and make changes they want after the election? Our people would not dare question any of the steps taken after the election. The BNP fears they will lose without the help of their corrupt people. The AL thinks they will win. But nobody knows what will really happen. Our countrymen have some peculiarity in their character. They always go for the wrong guys.
Our politicians have never understood the psyche of our people. Will they ever understand?
