some home truths. the BJP is still casting about for answers. it has to be different, and stay focused, to convince the voters to vote for it. it is not enough that the kkkangress has been a disaster of the first order: they have the support of the media and also the ill-gotten gains of a lot of years in power to be able to buy elections.

BJP deserves this advice from Jawahar. The party should heed it.
Different or just indifferent?

I have no clue where in the sky cloud nine is, but that is where the BJP is supposed to be residing presently. With back to back victories in successive State elections, Delhi is no longer a distant destination as it seemed after the electoral banishment of '04. But if the party truly wishes to start 'shining' again, it must necessarily emerge from the said cloud nine, wherever it is, and come down to earth.
And the landing may not be soft given the ill-fitting, uncertain wheels of alliances. The road to the Capital is again littered with hurdles and blocks. And I am not just referring to the forthcoming assembly polls in Rajasthan, MP and Chattisgarh where the BJP is the incumbent. Reverses here would doubtless put the clock back on the party's Delhi dreams. It may still limp its way through ahead of the Cong which is suffering from worse handicaps. But assuming the BJP's current winning streak continues, is it deliverance for the nation?
