Mr. Narayanamurthy for the post of President of India ! Suddenly one of my teenage fantasy seems to be coming true. Back in college i was a great fan of Jeffery Archer and the character of Florentyna kane is so overpowering that it remains iconisied in your imagination. Today there is a possibility to see that in reality here in our electoral process. Why not ? Now that India Inc has been surging forward with is global acquisitions and mergers happening here, we need vibrant visionary self made leaders to take the nation ahead . The world is watching India as the most emerging economy of this decade.
For the last 4 years India is shining ! With our current President Kalam lending so much credibility to the Indian subcontinent in the global arena we are seen and respected as a country to be taken seriously in terms of technological advancements and our Space initiatives. He is known for delivering his ideas on presentations among global leaders he meets and a stickler to time management in his video conferences with his subordinates and other civil servants. Leaders who met him were intimidated by his knowledge and greatly humbled by his approach.A definite favorite among children, students, youth and the poor masses of our nation, he will remain to be one of the all time popular presidents of our time to have so much credible air to the post that anyone in our times has done. But it seems the democractic process has taken its toll on him and he has his apprehensions when it comes to continuing for the second term. In Indian democracy as we all are aware the presidents role is very much limited and it has its own limitations. Political parties in the past have been using the post for appointing people who are yes men to the ruling parties this has been a reason for dissent of many presidents in the past . Such expectation of the ruling parties dont augur well for likes of people like our current president.
In a President representing india in the global stage all we need is a visionary who has been there and done that, a practical hands on man who has done it before and who can carry forward his people management skills to a bigger platform. If an individual can create a 1 lakh, Crore brand called Infosys from just $ 250 and if such a person sits at helm of affairs, we can see a great step ahead. Yesterday when Mr. Kalam expressed his comments at Infosys Mysore it has opened new possibilities in our political arena. And to be vouched by no other than the current president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam is a great recommendation by itself. Is it a symbol of trend to follow in these times? To carry forward the good work of President Kalam now that he is not ready to continue another term i think that there is no better choice than Mr. Narayanamurthy. Lets set aside religion politics, caste politics and look forward for an entrepruneur as the President of India.
