On 28th December 2013, when an IITian took oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi, the winds of hope were blowing throughout the nation. A month later, it is not as breezy as before. The AAP now looks like a successful revolution but a not so successful government. Embroiled in controversies, it is ironic that

A year can be almost an eternity in a country like India. Last December, there was a sense of doom and gloom around us. Angry citizens had taken to the streets in protest against the gang rape of the Delhi brave-heart and the issue of women safety and security;

First they ignore you, then laugh at you, then they fight you and then you win. That has so far been the AAP Story. They came, they saw and they conquered. On the 28th of December, 2013, Delhi’s youngest ever Chief Minister was sworn in. Arvind Kejriwal, with his trademark Aam Aadmi cap rode the metro to

Delhi doesn’t have a govt for a while. While Presidential rule looks inevitable, the people of Delhi at least got to see the drama and theatre of Arvind Kejriwal and his AAP party members. To borrow from AAP’s new-found admirer, Rahul Gandhi, it has been “complete nonsense” for the last 3 days. One loose cannon after another from
