This post has some great Terms. It is a commentary about the recently held elections in New Delhi - the City/ Capital/ State of India. The Ruling BJP and the GOP Congress have suffered a huge loss to a relatively unknown party AAM AADMI PARTY that emerged just about couple of years ago; - few terms come to my mind, and I would like the C Suite to ponder over them from a Political Risk perspective.
  1. Democracy is defined as a form of government in which people choose leaders by voting Or what happens in a country ruled by democracy Or an organization or situation in which everyone is treated equally and has equal rights
  2. When Voters Choose One Side fully in a Democracy - It is a Massacre by Voters : Politics then looks like a game or competition in which one person or team easily defeats another. This is not a Healthy situation for Democracy.
  3. This can lead to Movements like Occupy India. Have you Ever wondered,Why did the Occupy movement fail to take root in India? The basic reason is that the Indian middle class is so infused with the ideology of the caste system that it can never easily identify itself with the lower strata of society to say that we are the 99.99%. Even the Winning Party Aam Aadmi Party's chief made his 'Gotra' or Sub-sub-Caste an Election issue in Delhi State Election.
  4. Gentrification is What follows. Gentrification the process of renewal and rebuilding accompanying the influx of middle-class or affluent people into deteriorating areas that often displaces poorer residents. This leads to greater Polarisation and Ghettoisation of the Urban areas. Smaller States like Delhi who have limited land find it difficult even to convert their Sub-urban areas into SMART and SAFE livable for the Poor and Daily Wage Earner populate.
  5. My Word of the Day is: Eradicate Which Means "To uproot or do away with completely". BJP gave the 'Eradication of Congress' call - i.e. Congress Mukt Bharat and while Congress was eradicated - BJP also lost heavily on this political chessboard.
  6. To annihilate is to destroy (something or someone) completely Or to defeat (someone) completely. The Rout of Congress is complete in the Capital city of India. But, it has left the Challenger BJP mauled badly.
Personally, I think Victors need to be complimented but I think Victory of this nature is a Great Political Risk and Business would tread very carefully if they have plans to Start Up or grow in the State of Delhi.
