Waiting for Friday the 13thPosted: May 12, 2011
Kerala’s thirteenth Legislative Assembly will take shape on Friday the 13th when the ballot boxes are opened and the votes counted. It will be a lucky day for some and an unlucky day for many. Remember the song, “Only one wish will be granted…..Be it mine…!!”
The fate of Indian Marxism hangs in the balance. With the exit polls predicting a clean sweep for Mamta Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress and their electoral ally the Indian National Congress in West Bengal, it appears that Kerala may well be the last frontier of the LEFT. And I suspect this last bastion will also fall.
I pray for the success of my friends and allies in this election. May the best men and women win!
