Narendra Modi will immediately say, “500 crore ki face cream lagayenge”. I do not know how the Congress party thinks. Leaders are born and not made. After Indira Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi was a born leader (inspite of all his idiosyncrasies), Rajiv Gandhi was not a born leader (he was a reluctant leader) and Rahul Gandhi is also not a born leader. He does not need any Japanese company for his image makeover. Japanese themselves are not good political leaders they have become successful on account of their sincerity and good habits. It is a waste of money.
The first thing Rahul has to do is to appear relaxed and carry a smile like his sister Priyanka. Think before you speak and to develop good perception, meet people who have no personal axe to grind. Have an interaction with advisers and involve in discussions. Dilip Kumar never attended an acting school and yet he is the most natural actor. Nargis, Suchitra Sen, Madhubala were simply natural and they are acknowledged leaders of their respective field. So, be yourself and have no inhibitions.
The trouble with the Congress is that it is carrying too much unproductive baggage which should be shed by the party. Do not issue tickets to Ghulam Nabi Azad, Veerappa Moily, Priya Dutt, Sanjay Nirupam ( let him now go to AAP) , Sheila Dixit, Sushil Kumar Shinde, Rita Bahuguna. Instead tickets should be issued to leaders like Jyotiraditya, Milind Deora, Sachin Pilot, Randeep Surjewala and many young, qualified and clean persons. Training must be imparted to them to be as vocal like AAP activists. Look at the manner in which Arvind Kejriwal speaks who possesses the same accent of the Delhi residents. Time has come to develop that art.
In the film Sagina Mahato, Dilip Kumar says, “Aami sagina mahato”, “ Aami jigish kotchi”, how he is instantly appealing to the locals. Look at the manner in which Gabbar Singh speaks the most simple lines effectively, “Ketna innam rakhe hai sarkar…”, “Are ooh Sambha..” in the classic film Sholay. Be natural, honest and straight forward. Simply announcing welfare schemes won’t work. Why Digvijay Singh does not inform you about all these things? Why he only teaches you “politicking”? If you are not willing to learn, no teacher, howsoever experienced can teach you.
You need not react to everything immediately. See how Narendra Modi does not jump up to reply to everything. Why can’t you meet Modi at least once and have an interaction with him which will help you. In the film Moghul-e-Azam, Prithviraj Kapoor goes to meet “Baghi” Salim in his tent despite being prohibited by Raja Maan Singh, but he overrules him, thereby displaying his astounding leadership qualities. That is why he was known as “ Akbar-e-Azam”.
