I am a politician because I have a very strong emotion which raises in me empathy towards the pain and pleasure of the people: India’s socialist patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav who turns 82 today.
On this day in 1939, India’s pre-eminent socialist movement leader Mulayam Singh Yadav was born. He is a proud father of former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
Former Defence Minister and three times Chief Minister of India’s most populous province completes three quarters of a century today… Very happy 82nd Birthday to the socialist Patriarch! For the vast country of farmers, youth, Muslims and legion of admirers & followers, patriarch is the revered ‘Netaji’ Dear Leader.
No other leader of post-British India could fight the vile stench of communalism with lion-like ferocity as the socialist Patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav.
The messianic zeal ‘Dear Leader’ demonstrated in putting down misguided ‘kar sevak’ of an extremely communal harvesting in the name of ‘lord Rama’ is simply unparalleled in the history of secular, socialist and democratic Republic of India!
By all accounts and by all means, the legendary Saifai wrestling giant – turned – politician is the toast of India’s deprived and dispossessed, Muslims and Christians and Sikhs and Buddhists.
All hail the lion of Indian politics!! All hail the leader of men and women!!!
Between son and father, there’s an inexplicable connection. Here is the picture of the day in endorsement of the unbreakable bond between the patriarch-patron and the president of India’s Samajwadi Party. A lion father, Mulayam Singh Yadav has sired a lion son in Akhilesh Yadav to carry forward the torch of socialism.
Good father makes good son. Not every father gets a chance to start his son off in his own footsteps. In light of the affectionate bonding and historical achievement, Mulayam Singh knows deep within about the sparkling success, indomitable spirit and unquestionable obedience of his tiger-like-son.
The image reminds us of the old proverb that every son quotes his fathers in words and deeds. That is why perhaps German philosopher Nietzsche said, fathers and sons are much more considerate of one another than mothers and daughters.
Not long ago the world was talking with child-like excitement about the ‘rebellion’ of the son and ‘recalcitrance’ of the father. Sons, however, have always a rebellious wish to be disillusioned by that which charmed their fathers.
Good time ahead to the patriarch who enters the 82nd season of his eventful odyssey.
