Writing is a passion that springs from inside .
to me it gives deep fulfilment
if it could give hapiness to the reader that is satisfaction to the writer
most of my blogs are written on the spur with no editing
the moment for writing should be spontaneous and the flow continous
Behind every single second of ones life is a hidden story
the magic of bringing life into words is invigorating
Proud to be an Indiblogger

Mavericks in Indian politics
Indian politicians are mostly mavericks so the selected below are mavericks of high grade
Mamata Banerjee the fiery Bangla lawyer chief minister who single handedly axed the CPM out of the writers building in Kolkata ( the secretariat of west Bengal )which they had occupied for aeons .
Mamata fits in well with the label of a maverick
she is impulsive dramatic and an angry middle aged women fitting well to the revelutionary fervour of the Bengali psyche .
The ultimatum she has given to the congress at the centre now could shake the polity a bit and could pave way for future confabulations .
with all her imperviousness she is also a machiavellian politician whose larger ambiton would be to occupy the Primeministerial Gaddi in the near future .she knows the seat is up for the gamble in the near future and she wants to be a possible contender .
Uma Bharati the inflamable sanyasin of the BJP would fit the maverik label well
be it her antics in Ayodhya ,or her challenging L.K. Advani himself in her party or by her robust speeches
how can one forget Mayawati when we talk of maveriks
The great benefactor of the downtrodden and the lower castes had spend crores of rupees for erecting her own statues when her state reeled in poverty ,cooling her heels outside power for now the maverik would return anytime with a bang knowing our country
Jayalalitha the hooded empress of Tamilnadu continues to dance her way into the hearts of Tamils just like she did in films years back
She never ceases to be the prime destroyer of her bete noir the dark goggled octogenarian polygamist Karunananidhi ,she is a maverick at times but also a mature stateswomen at other times
most of the above examples are females
this does not mean we have no male competiton
the ancient Raj Narain wh o was famous for defeating Indira Gandhi himself is a prime choice
from wearing sarees to drinking urine he has done it all
then of course we have our home bred Bihari Lalu himself who pu lts a front as a country bum with a cleaver brain ticking behind all along .
one can include Suresh Kalmadi who played the right and wrong game in sports administration and made a packet for himself and his patrons in this group
cud have missed many more
as I said difficult when the place is filled with mavericks
