I really felt ashamed that I have witnessed the whole through my naked eyes in a Programme, “Kaun Banega Pradhan Mantri” by Star News, An Indian Hindi News Channel.
I went to spot as I am researching and working of democratic process of City beautiful, Chandigarh in ongoing Lok Sabha Elections 2009 from day first, but after reaching on the avenue, I was first to reach at 7 PM where as it was started, better to say ordered to take off after it was well managed to favor a particular party candidate.
The atmosphere at spot of event was like a political rally, which was sponsored by Star News in the name of who will be the next Prime Minister of India.
All three candidates of national parties were invited by Hindi news channel to attend live debate which was always dead debate because presenters of news channel were more interested some else motive than to know who will be next Prime Minister of India , which was the tag line of its programme.
The event was so badly managed that in most of time ruled by supporters BSP party, who were in out numbers than else.
One thing worried me as a citizen of Chandigarh that presence of bouncers or musclemen in this media organized event and poorly guarded by Chandigarh police.
Feeling the generating heat, I left my seat in audience and took aerial seat as body language expert to gaze the mockery of Indian democracy in Hands of Indian media in the name of professionally dead programme named “Kaun Banega Pradhan Mantri.” Title.
If such a open and ugly Media tamasha in the name of Prime Minister of India is being allowed than integrity and prestige of PM India will surely at losing end, which I request election commission of India to look into seriously.
At last one thing happened when an independent candidate, Ajay Goyal, who was sitting in front row and watching the whole process not only openly blamed star news journalists about their biased usage of Media to felicitate a particular candidate and not given him a chance.
The Congress, whose candidate, Pawan Kumar Bansal had decided not to attend and BJP’s Satya Pal Jain also shared similar views on the utility such political sponsored media events to enhanced the application of true democracy in India.
Last not the least, Today’s experience of India media playing in hands of Politicians has forced me to redefine the definition of four pillars of Indian democracy, and inspired me to do some research, weather such sponsored pillars can benefit Indian citizens some where.
May God Save my City, My India from these Tumbling pillars???

During my free patrolling of Chandigarh, I came to knew that, city beautiful is not responding to Indian democracy as it has in cases of infrastructural, comer's and educational has shown.
As, I am well aware about on going elections for Indian Lok sabha on the corners,rest of Indian cities are well painted and motivated by Indian festival of democracy,(I usually call), as in festival every body wants to take joy out of festival in their own ways, like that democratic elections in India are similar to all Indian festivals like Diwali,Holi, Id, etc. but difference is in duration of festival.
But my City beautiful is not taking part in this more than month long Indian democracy festival, That stunned me.
Question came to my mind, that without much participation of Chandigarh sectoral population in democratic elections, are person representing City beautiful truly represents Chandigarh?

Open debate is the most powerful and decent tool of any democracy, which I think is missing character from India Demo- crazy (Democracy), where all participants especially political leaders who only try to demonstrate their side only, and not willing to hear from other side.
Live debate on democracy and its all important issues effecting citizens to society and vice versa are not seen any where from day first of Indian democracy, first due to over exposure of charismatic political leadership, where people could not understood the values of their democratic right means vote and use in matter of faith on these leaders like Nehru, Indira Gandhi etc.
After wards came the 1977, when Indian voters tried to change the situation but result again become zero, but after come the times of regional charismatic leaders like Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Yadav, Mayawati, shard pawar etc who not only killed the debate issue at all levels because their charisma are based on but castes, religion and religion not personal thus buried the tradition of open debate in Indian democracy.
BJP Leader L K Advani Challenged Prime Minster Man Mohan Singh for Debate.
I was at pain , when I read the news BJP Leader L K Advani has put Challenged Prime Minster Man Mohan Singh for Live Debate because as Indian researcher on Parliamentary issues, I know the poor records of both Leaders in Indian parliament during debates on national and international in parliament.
As per my political understanding by Challenging Prime Minster Man Mohan Singh or Sonia Gandhi he was eying not on live debate issue but his trail to establish himself as alternate of former.
My humble suggestion to Advani Ji is why live debate with Man Mohan Singh or Sonia Gandhi, Why not with Indian voters???
I attended the press conference, one thing which attracted me as body language expert that body wave of Goyal was not shaky; it is of unique constant wave length that substantiates his motive to enter into politics.
Authority over new ideas on national and international issue put him in extra bracket from ordinarily Indian Democratic leader.
I am going to keep watch on his is democratic actions during his trail to face or fight the Indian Democratic elections from My Home city Chandigarh in Lok Sabha 2009.

As one enters the Parliament House, one is fascinated by ai row of beautiful paintings adorning the walls of the outer circular corridor on the ground floor. The paintings are the works of eminent artists of India, depicting scenes from the long history of this country right from the Vedic age down the British period, culminating in the attainment of independence in 1947.
The practice in India of decorating public places, temples and palaces etc., with paintings and murals has come down to us since time immemorial. These pieces of art are symbolic of the life, culture and traditions of the people of the contemporaneous periods. To us now, they are reminiscent of the great civilisations and empires that flourished in India in the past and of the great kings, warriors and saints who by their efforts glorified this land of ours. The caves of Ajanta, Ellora and Elephanta are vivid reminders of great art that flourished centuries ago. It was natural, therefore, that the architects of modern India should have thought it fit to decorate the modern temple of democracy, i.e. the Parliament House, with paintings depicting great moments in the history of this country and to try to revive in some measure the glory that was 'India'. The idea was first conceived by the late Shri G.V. Mavalankar, the first Speaker of Lok Sabha. In 1951, a Planning Committee was appointed, consisting of prominent Members of Parliament, eminent scholars, archaeologists, historians with the Speaker (Shri G.V. Mavalankar) as Chairman. The Committee drew up a detailed plan to decorate the corridor on the ground floor of the Parliament House with 125 panels (size 11'.9" x 4'.11/2") and 46 motifs, at an estimated cost of Rs. 3 lakhs. According to revised plan the corridor on Ground Floor of the Parliament House will be decorated with 59 Panels.
In order to execute the plan, an Artists Sub-Committee consisting of well-known artists, historians, archaeologists and archaeological chemists was appointed in 1954. This Sub-Committee laid down a detailed and systematic procedure for getting the panels painted by selected artists in the country.
The artists selected for painting the murals have been divided into different zones and each zone is under the change of an honorary Artist Supervisor who is also a member of the Artists Sub-Committee. The Artist Supervisor guides and supervises the work of the artists in his respective zone. Each panel passes through three stages, i.e. colour sketch, pencil cartoon and final painting on masonite board. The work was to be approved at every stage by the Artist Supervisor and the Artists Sub-Committee, particularly by the historian members of the Sub-Committee.
