A case of chappan inchi seena v/s dimagiya khokhlapan
The current use of words and oratory in parliament and outside by the opposition members speaks more of their immaturity, lack of sensitivity and respect to the chair and thoroughly exposes their negative mindset bereft of any factual data and genuine concern but stinks of a personal attack on the current Prime-minister using his own phrase of having a chappan inchi-seena to ridicule him of pettiness, arrogance, cowardice and bigotry, reflecting sadly more on their own mindlessness.
If I am not wrong Mr. Narendra Modi had used the 56-inch chest comment at a 2014 election rally in Uttar Pradesh elections where he dared the then chief of the ruling Samajwadi party Mr. Mulayam Singh, a wrestler as this term is used more within the wrestling community in jest that you need a 56-inch chest to convert a hugely populous state like U.P. into a developed state like Gujarat. In reality except Arnold Schwarzenegger no other politician has a 56 inches chest though most have that waistline due to their appetite for corruption and power by hook or by crook and stomach it, too.
In true sense, a broad chest means that you need a bigger vision/guts and heart to do great things and not chest thumping or bravado bordering on foolhardiness, as depicted by the opposition. Given the chronological events, election wins, progress made by Uttar Preash and India domestically as well as internationally on various fronts, their continuous dare to him on courage and cowardice is nothing but a reflection on their own follies and bankruptcy of ideas and alternatives.
Metaphorically, such a big chest can be only attributed to Lord Hanuman, the Sevak of Lord Ram who was so devoted to him that he bared it open to show that the divine king resides within his heart and soul and not in the most precious necklace which Sita gave it to him as a token of appreciation for his loyalty and services towards the master for his sharpness, firmness, dexterity, competence, modesty, prudence, virility, prowess and ever-present intelligence.
The current P.M. had declared himself as Pradhan Sevak of 130 crore people of India on the day he took the oath of the prime minister ship thus if a parallel is drawn with above metaphor, the opposition is targeting wrongly the person rather than the mistakes and follies in policies or the lack of pace and developments, if any and could be many. As he said himself content and intent need to be probed and the opposition is just failing on that front.
He is wisely investing the available resources for the upliftment of poor, skill development of youth, reforms for ease in doing business, progress of the nation, defending the borders, elimination of the terrorists and the anti-national elements thus leaving very little scope and ground for the opposition to counter him unless they get a mindful person at the helm of their affairs who is truthful, honest, and selflessly devoted to the cause of the nation and have the courage to build a positive narration and an alternative vision.
Playing with words, promoting false narratives, creating divisions in the society, opposing even good reforms which are introduced in the interest of the people and targeting the person with lies and false propaganda will never work as the man concerned is courageous and relentless enough to have embarked on his mission to serve his country and the countrymen to the best of his abilities with good intention and a team of do-gooders.
We need more metaphorical 56-inch Chester’s and not mindless court jesters.
