The Youth and Romanticism in Politics of India

Politics has always been a tool for a romantic outlook. It is an easy way to drive our souls toward a common goal. It ignites the desired motions in the minds of the people and brings them to their side of the political divide. The same romantic lens that brings excitement to politics can also bring trauma to the culture and social revolution of society as a whole. When politicians or political parties are worshiped in a manner that they become beyond criticism. This particular case is called the graveyard of reality and progress in general. 

Political figures often speak in impressive rhetoric and paint a picture of a world that is fairer, more just, and more prosperous. Romanticism in politics is a major spice in the political meal.  Be it glamorizing social responsibility or portraying victims in the game of gambling on chairs. 

However, the political landscape of any country is shaped by its youth population. {Speaking about India.} So with this thought in mind, today we are here to talk about youth romanticism with politics in India. 

“Youth and Politics in India: From Idealism to Blind Devotion”

Historically India has a solid history of youngsters leading the politics of the country. From Indian National Congress to the Naksalite movement to the elections of today. We see youngsters act as the wheels of any Vijayrath of the political party. 

However, in history, the youth of this nation has looked for good governance, development, and the welfare of society in general. Today politics is completely romanticized, people become blind followers and devotes to a specific political figure. There remains no scope for criticism and questioning.

The true values of democracy have been kept under wraps by social media influence and marketing strategy. 

When we talk about romanticism it is always addressed to the youth. It’s a theme that will stay as stains of coffee on a white shirt. 

The politics that we call the sketch of our democracy are drafted on the tag of socialism, democracy, secularism, and social justice. 

The Gandhian philosophy of non-violence was to remain the most advocated stamp of Indian political culture. However, youth is more prone to prove the adrenaline in them and romanticize the action bit of politics. 

In the recent past, we have chosen our leaders or ideals based on memes and the savageness of individuals. Our country is a victim of influential politics where one has to accuse the other of the broken vase but non would come forward to clean the mess. The debates these days in and out of parliament are not to find solutions but to blame others for the failures.

“Politics, Culture, and the Power of Social Media in India”

Now to talk about the youth and romanticism in the politics of India. We need to look for changes and the politics need to change.  The population needs to hear the consequences of the actions they take. 

The cultural and social revolution demands the freedom to express themselves par from their own beliefs and ideologies. The major war is between liberal thoughts and conservative ideas. 

The community in general has become numb towards the grief of others. The only thing that influences the public to initiate any action is hatred and roast. The social media is filled with memes calling Rahul Gandhi “Pappu” and Modi G calling Doland Trump as “Do-Land-Trump” where one is to make fun of the other stands as a savage moment. With a lighting edit, Modi G becomes an all-time favorite and the youth romanticize war and glorify it and supports the aggressive foreign policy but I believe this all could not be a point of conversation if the social media would not hype the pride in the social web. 

“Indian Politics: A Teenage Love Story”

Romanticism of Indian politics is very young and as with any teenage love story, it has a lot of innocence in it. The population similar to any teen is attracted to anything that seems fascinating at first glance. When politicians tag their plan of action the population trusts them with their heart and soul whereas the politicians are like any college-going hot blood that do not want any attachments just five years of dating.  Such relationships usually end up with a scar on the heart. And deep down the population want to stay single forever, but just as Sanjay Dutt said, “Phir ek din gali me Shusma ayi” Another politician brings another pile of promises and the population gets wet. 

Now to find an ideal politician to trust and love for life one needs to prioritize what one wants from the relationship. 

Only when the population instead of attracting towards a bottle of Desi and saree starts asking for education and infrastructure, love will emerge and a very romantic relationship with no corruption and hookups will come on the plate of Indian democracy.
