Prakriti Analysis: On Chiranjeevi's Motivation

Akriti team brought us the news that on 17th August 2008, Chiranjeevi announced that he is entering into Politics by starting his own Political party. Watch the announcement on YouTube video here.

Prakriti, Jagriti and Samskriti teams had a long discussion about the announcement and we promised to bring to you our analysis of the event. This is first part of the analysis on Motivation.

On Motivation

Based fully on the announcement itself, Akriti team summarizes the key motivation for Chiranjeevi to enter into politics as follows:

  • To serve people, particularly uplift the poorer sections
  • Bring smart, capable and good people in to Politics
  • Personal fulfillment and conviction that it would be a historical mistake not to come to politics
  • Last but the most popular reason, People that love him wanted him to come to Politics and reminded him of his responsibility to people that made him what he is.
  • Not for Power, Money or fame

On Inspirational Events & People

In the order mentioned in the speech:

  • Meeting with former President Kalam
  • NT Rama Rao that reminded the Social responsibility of artists
  • Fans and People in general from all sectors, all over the world
  • B.R. Ambedkar
  • Mahatma Gandhi
  • Mother Theresa
  • Jotirao Phule
  • Last letters written by people wishing to see Chiranjeevi in politics
  • People and lives saved by Blood bank

Prakriti team's analysis on How people received it regarding what motivated Chiranjeevi into Politics :

The announcement itself is not at all a surprise as many of us already know that Chiranjeevi will come into politics. Indications are every where for a long time.

  • It would have been much better if he had just said that he would enter in to politics in a couple of minutes and because of People without citing any other reason.
  • We love him a lot and want him to come to politics, but we can't help but laugh at the whole story and motivation behind his decision to come in to politics.
  • None of the people barring NTR he cited as inspirations, never entered into Politics posing a question for Chiranjeevi why you? They demonstrated that, if you want to serve people, you don't need politics. And NTR clearly said he was inspired by the Power.
  • We do not believe in any of those reasons. And it really doesn't matter to us either. We want him in Politics, as it would bring a new wave of politics and activism.
  • One ardent fan of Chiranjeevi said that most of the fan base is working class and the story and background is created to attract a broader spectrum, beyond the working class fans.
  • The story would also provide much needed media attention and a pat on the back from conservative educated middle class that normally don't like the mass hero.
  • Photograph of B.R. Ambedkar on the wall will have a much anticipated ripple effect with little unexpected consequences. (more on this later)

      You Are What You Think People Think About You

      There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
      As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
      A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

      Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

      When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
      Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
      More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

      Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

      I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
