Have you realised politics aaj kal kaafi zyada polarisation ho gayi hai India mein. You can’t just be an Indian, you have to belong to a party these days. Right?
You say something about Kejriwal, people think yeh BJP ka aadmi hai. You say something BJP log sochte hai Aam Aadmi Party ka aadmi hai. Ya toh hum congress ke ho. You know they put those caps on you ke tum ek ke bare mein bol rahe ho toh tum doosri party ko belong karte ho.
Whereas you give your opinion as an Indian sometimes. And you know it’s getting to a stage where you know slowly you’ll have first name second name and a third name. Like first name is, I’m Amit. ok? Second name is Tandon which tells me what caste I belong to. There will be a third name which will tell you ke yeh kaunsi party ko support karta hai. You know you will get to that point where Amit Tandon Congressi. Manish Gupta BJP. Amar Singh jo paise dede. You know? But we’re getting there.
And recently this demonetisation happened. How many of you support demonetisation?
Quite a few people support. Like I don’t still have an opinion. I think 6 mahine baad pata chalega kya hua. Right? Aur economy toh pata nahi par humari vocabulary zaroor improve ho gayi hai uski wajah se. Right?
And the thing is problem is that in a lot of cases the opinion on this policy depends upon whether you like a person or not. Right?
It’s not based on the policy but on the basis of who took that policy decision.
So people who love Modi love the decision, who hate him hate the decision.
What has happened is Modi kayion ka beta hai aur kaiyon ki bahu hai.
Toh beta toh kabhi galat ho hi nahi sakta. Beta toh sharaab peeke bhi ghar aa gaya toh parents kehte hai ki kitna stress ho rakha hai bechare ko. Aur bahu chahe kama bhi le aur ghar bhi handle karle toh dekh bacha akela chor gayi. You know? Toh tumne nikaal li galti isme bhi uski.
And for one person he is definitely the bahu. For Arvind Kejriwal. Like Arvind Kejriwal was quite for three days ki yeh toh yaar mere vaale patte khel gaya. Yeh toh cheating ho gayi.
It was almost like you know what happened around 10-15 years back when Indian team went to Pakistan. Second test match, pehle over mein, Irfan Pathan ne pace bowling mein swing daal ke hattrick le liya.
And Pakistan is like yaar yeh toh humari strength hoti thi. Yeh galat ho gaya. And the thing is impacts are different, like for me, this is what happened like my daughter has been keeping a lot of pocket money, been putting it together. Do teen mahine pehle wo bethi hui apna pocket money gin rahi ki 870-880 rupaye ikkathe ho rakhe and aur saari chillar, wo 10 rupaye, 20 rupaye, 50 ke note. And i was passing by and I being a good father I went to her and I said beta kahan chillar ikatthe kar rahi hai, yeh mujhe dede mere se 1000 ka note lele. Uske 2 mahine baad 1000 ka note 0 ho gaya.
Uska baap se vishwas uth gaya uske baad se. You know, then the day this happened demonetisation toh whatsapp pe aana shuru hua aur whatsapp pe aya and whatsapp pe ek message tab aaya tha, I’m not sure whether you got it where they said that, you know you should start telling the poor people ki 500 aur 1000 ke note bandh ho gaye hai. Right? That message was out ki sabzi walo ko bata do specially sabzi vala everybody at written. because everybody wanted to show ki hum dil ke ache hai par sirf whatsapp pe.
And you know I went to the market, mein sabzi wale ke paas gaya and I told him ki bhaiya ab na 500-1000 ke note mat lena, bandh ho gaye hai. And he looked at me and he was like tumko hum gadhe lagte hai? Tereko kya lagta hai whatsapp mere paas nahi hai? Tum jaise log aare hai, yeh sab batare hai, wo puri baat toh sunte nahi hai ke bank mein dal rahe hai yeh note. Tum jaise logo ko hum 200-200 rupaye ki sabzi 500 mein chipka rahe hai. Then in the morning the maid came aur maids ko toh sab pata hota hai. They know everything. And she came to my wife and she was like bibiji aap ko toh badi problem ho rahi hogi, 500 aur 1000 ke note bandh ho gaye. Aur humara kya hai ki hum middle class hai toh hume yeh education mein milti thi ki maids ko mat batao ghar pe kitne paise pade hai. Bilkul. Toh meri wife is like nahi hamare paas toh paise hai hi nahi.
3000 rupaye pade hote hai hamare paas ghar pe. Areh nahi apne logo se lene honge cash-vash. Nahi nahi hamare paas paise hai hi nahi. Humari education hai woh , maids ko mat batao paise hai. So you know she is asking again and again. Finally she said koi paise nahi hain apke paas? Nahi humare paas koi paise nahi hai Acha mera 1.50 lakhs rupaye phir adjust karva doge? And i think it’s a very gutsy move from Modi, you know like very gutsy move because he is taking on the people who voted him in power. The traders specially. Like, businessmen were the biggest lobby but after them. And suddenly he has turned around you know and the businessmen are the most affected, it’s almost like this for businessmen ki jaise aapne bacha pala posa padhaya likhaya wo IAS bana, hafte baad hi wapas aake kehta papa hamara ghar illegal bana hua hai. Tudvana padega. Unko samajh mein nahi aara ki dukhi hoye ki they should be proud of him.
