Amidst the cacophony of electoral discussions and political mud-slinging, Nandini Alva – JD(S) candidate – Central Bangalore

took some time off to interact with Political Action Interns present at the B.PAC event organised at Bharti Vidya Bhavan on Race Course road today. An unusual stunt though, Alva ensured to reach out to the interns in her most humble and approachable form.

Her constant reiteration of her agenda on women empowerment gathered enthusiastic students from the audiences to lend an ear to the rendezvous.

She discussed invariably on vocational training, entrepreneurship and the rise of small scale industries to which women must be actively involved.  According to Alva, 60% of women in India are financially dependent on either their husband or family.

She believes to convert this 60% to 0% as her agenda ensures to offer an opportunity to every woman in the city to live their life free of limitations.

Vigilant of her immediate surroundings, Alva had her discussions veered off in another direction. She began to speak on youth empowerment instead. She urged the interns to specifically participate in political activities and choose a leader who would endorse their views. “Let us all become leaders and actively participate in politics”, she said. On a positive note she also added, “Change will come to India, it is just a matter of time”.

On the contrary, the interaction was insightful and enlightened the interns of their responsibility as citizens of ‘namma Bengaluru’.

Political Encounter

MITRON (Word for FOLKS that’s in vogue among the youths these days .. Isn’t it??) !! –

Politics,  a word highly used, misused and abused by us the so called Aam Aadmi. For anything that goes wrong with the federal system or country we (me included) the so called “Buddhijivis” the pseudo – intellectual class blame it on politics but never contributing even two cents worth of effort to correct.
