The Election Algorithm....

**See the Solitary Writer as a Whimper,Critic....which you don't see quite often.

Election algorithm is one of the most trickiest algorithm that I had ever learned during my college days. No wonder this is tricky ,but I should say that I loved it.It aims at electing the co ordinator while considering the process unique number. It may be bouncers or beamers to any one reading till this line.Hey Anurag and Ajay , I guess you both know this Algorithm.Election is up ahead in few weeks time and guess what all the good works of the Congress is coming to an end.Its now time to elect a new Prime Minister.Lets go tete-a- tete with this discussion.I am all excited as this is the first time that I will be casting vote. * Flying in the sky :P *

Last month ,I got a call from the regional election office to verify details and the documents for scrutiny purpose. I asked them about the voting process and the time period within which I will get my voter Id.He said that they would mail us the voted id to our home and one could see a delirious Ste. Now,It seem to me like my first movie or my first cricket match. I hope I don't mess it out and make the right choice to elect our nations wise man. But Sometimes I wonder what our leaders have done for our country. Seriously I expect everyone to think twice before voting.Well assess everything from the last time you elected your sagacious wise man....hey ladies by wise man here I refer our prime minister . Well,Jokes apart I seriously want my fellow country mates to think and lets see the drawbacks of this thing..hey not the election algorithm.My sir didn't teach us the election algorithm in that detail as most of the time we often have questionnaire session where he asks questions and experiments his teaching skills with clever students .Well, the name of this post may sound silly. It has nothing to do with the "Election Algo" ,but the real life election process and the election algo have some striking resemblances and similarities.During the last Lok sabha election, no wonder Congress won owing to various failures of the NDA govt at the centre. But , after 5 years now I wonder what has the UPA done for Indians .
The goal of the "Election Algo" is to ensure that when an election starts it concludes with all the processes agreeing upon who the new co ordinator is ,just like the Election Commisioner.
But in the EA, every process takes parts in the election and agrees upon a single co ordinator.On Contrary, in case of elections various parties decide upon their allies and finally if some one wins they couldn't decide upon their PM candidate.. such is the case in a democratic country like India. Another issue and this is a serious one and I just feel that the EC should take the necessary actions. During the last Tamil Nadu Assembly elections, Karunanidhi promised a free color TV for all those who votes for his party or may be a color TV to everyone after he wins the election.And on the last day of the election campaign Miss Jayalalitha announced free laptops for all students. I wonder wheter this trick would work. Why would she give Laptops to students, she could infact assured poor people about help and offering other services to them. Sooner or later Mr.Karunanidhi came into power and fullfilled his promises. Imagine giving a 1000 Rs color TV to people of TN... Waah!! we should learn something from this leader . Well, people should trust their leaders and have faith in them. These TV,Laptops and 2 Rs Rice won't help you win seats . Well ,these are used for the wrong reasons and it can be considered as bribing . Why is the EC not taking actions against such leaders. To rule a state or a nation ,leaders bribe people by offering TV,Laptop etc.
Well, thats past and lets talk about the future and current scenario. It seems Mr. LK Advani wants to seek youth votes by displaying his banners in social networking sites and in various websites. I had seen his ad on my facebook profile. The other day ,we had a group chat in gmail chat along with Chronic writer,Ajay,Rashi,Charu and my other friends. I was discussing about LK Advani's sms .I usually get up at 7 am and these days I am getting at 6 pm.I should give credits to Mr.LK Advani's election campaign skills. Now, every morning I get an sms where Advani jii reminds me to vote for him. These were the sms I get every day.

1.Shri Advani promises a better future for girl childs through his Laxmi plan.
Sir, in case you find yourself lucky in securing a seat ,I will be pleased and happy to know this . But during this tenure of 5 years what would you do?.How can you assure us that you will give better future for our girls.Wishing you good luck in this matter.
2.Advani promises a free laptop for all college students.
Hey,Sir I am game for this ..but I would rather prefer N96 or an Iphone..But any way your too generous and kind. I am glad that you got time to think about the youths. Wishing you luck sir.

There was a time when we all learnt "71% of people in India practice agriculture". He could promise something that might soothe and please poor farmers of India. I really wonder why they play a game with poor innocent people's heart. I don't have anything against Advani in particular. I am just angry with his reminder sms every day.These days I don't even use my alarm clock. "Advani jii ki jaai ho" for waking me up everyday. :P . Now ,its the time for the parties for the seat negotiations and yeah its a big thing naaa.It has to be "INC Vs BJP" for the center and this time it would be interesting to see who wins the election. Last time it was a clean sweep for INC in states like TN,punjab etc and I am eagerly waiting to know the result this time.
Few days ago,Congress came up with an announcement "25 kg of rice per poor family at 3 Rs/kg". Wow!!! we are gonna get rice at a cheap cost. But , the quality matters and I am game for this too. Thank god now poor people don't need to starve. Don't you think these enticements would work and these promises. Well ,my million dollar question is "Do we have a money tree outside our parliament?". These TV,Laptop and all are coming out from the goverments money and not from our leaders personal bank account. Yesterday our so called "Weak Prime minister " (as called by Advani) came back with a strong reply to Mr.Advani's comments by adding flavour to this tough tiff of words.They were just highlightin the pros and cons of their power during those stipulated 5 years time.The war of words have just begin and we are all set for a strong battle between the parties. Hope the better one to win in this game of politics and the better one survives. Let me write the "Election Algorithm" (not theDC one).
1. Start.
2.Initialization where the EC decides the polling dates.
3.Campaigning phase where the political party play the cameo game of mesmerizing people by bribing them TV ,Laptop,Rice etc.
4.Polling starts where the polling takes place in various phases.

5.Results annoucement
6.If party "P" wins ,then

a) Do the good work for 5 years, else
a) Get a tag as "Opposition party" and just play game on the "Ruling party" and try to bring their goverment down (eg the Nuclear deal where the opposition played an imp role for the anti 271 :p)
7.Tenure gets over and go back to step 2 and continue the entire process.

Well if you observe ,there is no stop to this "election algorithm".
Enough of "Election Algo" and "Election process", now its time for a change as I firmly believe that change is the law of nature.

Hey Mr Advani,if you win then I expect you to send me a laptop and yeah with bluetooth,WiFi connectivity,Cam and speakers. And yays!! yippie.....I am waiting for " 30/4/09" ...the big day in my life....I will transform myself from a "lazy citizen" to a "responsible citizen" by casting my vote.... *floating on air and watches the calendar and encirlces the date 30/4 with his red color marker pen*

  1. a very well written post on cross fire of bulgy and senseless usual monotonic rhyms of politicians of our land!
    as long as we have people like u who can visualize the stupidity of many of their fake promises and give cross reply like the few that u gave in the post above, there is always a reason for them to give chola poori and find some senseless listeners in their rally!
    they definately cant afford the members of this louge to face in any public forum :)
    tight hug!


    and PS: the saddest part is that this algorithm is recurrsive and is expected to operate for next 100 years without any termination statement :(
