WHO SHOULD BE OUR PRESIDENT?= WE NEED AN EMINENT, NON-POLITICAL PERSON ACCEPTABLE TO ALL (OR MOST) = who can that be? = What about NRN, RATAN TATA, or Abdul Kalam?
WHO SHOULD BE
Currently, hot debate is on in India's Political Circles, on who should be our next President?
Well. What UPA and NDA will do finally is one thing. But, what is GOOD for the Nation needs more serious debate.
In my view, an eminent, non-political personality – respected internationally for his stature is more suitable for the Post of President. He will have more acceptability from all people of India – even if not from the caste and religious conscious politicians.
But, possibly, he may be acceptable to them also.
I personally feel that three persons – equally eminent - are fit for the post of president of India.
1. Abdul Kalam (for the second time) : Even out of presidency, he has amply proved his mettle. Of course, it will be a second time for him – as was the case with some great earlier Presidents.
2. Ratan TATA – He is quitting from all active Business obligations, is the most well known face in all continents from India and has done yeoman service to India. The TATA family for last several generations has done great service to India, created lakhs of Job opportunities and seen a revolution in all Industries.
3. N.R.Narayana Murthy :- Like Ratan TATA, NRN is also another MOST WELL KNOWN FACE across all continents and has done extraordinary service to India – as a first Generation Business man. The concept of sharing wealth with employees in such a big way – and paying salaries almost at international levels – has started with NRN. The Salary revolution in IT sector has begun with NRN. It has done wonders to Indian economy – especially as others in IT field emulated NRN in this respect.
The common factors for all three are their impeccable integrity, absolute Nationalistic spirit, great humanism and a great record of service behind them. All the three are absolutely NON-POLITICAL.
India must look for such eminent Intellectuals for adorning the seat of Presidency. They will be heard with respect in any International forum. Especially NRN and Ratan TATA, by their straight forward and intellectual approach, can bring a sea change in the attitude of International Investors and Politicians towards India.
How many Presidents of India does an Average Indian or even an active, intelligent Indian recall? Very few. And most of them are - non-political Presidents who have brought stature to the seat of president. And they are remembered more.
Pranab Mukherjee is an excellent Man. But, he is POLITICAL. He can be a deputy Prime Minister or one who will take the baton from Dr. MMS some time. If President Post must go to a Political person - Pranabda is well suited.
But, the seat of Presidency must go to an eminent NON-POLITICAL PERSON. This is good for India.
I request Readers to devote their thought to this idea and spread it across in all possible forums. India needs such eminent people in the seat of President. Else, we may possibly have a FORGETTABLE PRESIDENT for next 5 years. Sorry for the expression.But, it is a painful fact that we remember a few presidents MUCH BETTER than the rest. I will be grateful for your comments and suggestions further.
