जब भी चुनाव आते हैं तो मैं यह सोचकर हताश हो जाता हूं कि हम सच्चे, स्वतंत्र और सुधार चाहने वाले उदार नागरिकों की बजाय फिर अपराधियों, लुभावने नारों वाले भ्रष्टों और राजनीति क वंश के सदस्यों को चुन लेंगे। इस बार तमिलनाडु में शशिकला और अमेरिका में डोनाल्ड ट्रम्प की धक्कादायक जीत साफ-सुथरे उदारवादियों की नाकामी को रेखांकित करती है।
