  • In episode 236 of Cut The Clutter, Shekhar Gupta tells you why it was inevitable that Sonia Gandhi would return as head of the Congress and how, over the decades, the tight control of the Nehru-Gandhis over the party meant that it barely tolerated any other dynasty from flourishing

    Reinventing the party with the same family worship that's lasted for over 7 decades now. Digging the ditch ever deeper, preparing the ground for future humiliation come election time.

    I am a Professor and I prepare - a lot - for my lectures. While I like these commentaries, I think it’s worth preparing for these commentaries. As a former Editor, I am sure you understand the importance of removing the clutter from the clutter.

    The current congress is not the same as the even the one that was involved in freedom struggle.Indira Gandhi broke "Indian National Congress" and created "Congress(I)" while the actual congress remained as "Congress(O)". and that's fortified by the fact that Congress(O) got the election symbol of original INC. later they renamed it back into "INC".
    Having the same name does not make it the original congress.
    And Congress became feudal since India Gandhi, not Sonia Gandhi. Only reason some no-gandhi could become president for some time was because Gandhi were not interested in running the family shop.

    How different are the legacies of the presidents of the other parties ? The truth is that Presidents of all the parties have been appointees of the powers that be !
    Legacy of right wing zealots of the Congress would have brought us earlier to these fascist days !

    Probably the only unbiased report from Shekar ... He failed to mention though that all the major media houses were also used to defame detractors and competition which has led to today's distrust in media by public ...

    Sir, you didn't mention Maulana Azad who said (in his biography India wins freedom) that pushing Nehru's candidature as his own successor was the biggest mistake of his political carrier. He was similarly forgotten and his book banned.

    Spiking is a common veterinarian remedy for ageing hens who refuse to lay. Then the farmer doubles the number of roosters, and makes her productive once more. Has a political spiking just occurred in cuckoo land ?

    Thanks for putting things in perspective with the focus on the long past. History always provides the perspective to the present much clearly thus cutting the clutter. Many of our biggest worry now is from whither will emerge a good opposition which is important for democracy to function properly. Lest we degenerate to something else.

    A nice rundown of the congress history, errr Nehru-Gandhi infamous history. However, Mr. Shekhar Gupta did not inform us on the most crucial point as to wherefrom this dynasty derives its undemocratic tyrannical power. This point is all the more noteworthy because this undemocratic nefarious power remained in existence for many years even while a scared Sonia did not want it. You can't solve a problem if you do not diagnose it. So, one more time, please tell us how this power revolves around Gandhis who are demonstrably incompetent.

    Actually, Congress was controlled/strongly influenced by left wing thinkers and their strangle hold on Congress is the problem. Manmohan Singh was great for them till he decided to lean towards US. And the best way to discredit anyone is to call him anti poor and anti minorities. Some presidents you mentioned were not right wingers but were not good enough left wingers for them.

    Whether all of the congress presidents mentioned by you were not HONOURED by Congress governments from 1947 to 2014 by releasing postal stamps with their images? What else anybody can expect from INC which is owned and managed by Nehru-Gandhi_Vadera family and coherts,private ltd? The premium awards like Bharat Ratna were appropriated by Nehru,Indira and Rajiv, and the latest aspirants are living now., but power has gone from hand. Ironically some faces appeared in coins, but neityher the stamps nor the coins are not available today.Even in Google some images themselves of some past leaserd are not there, so they used postal stamps or paintings/caricatures to fill the slots.

    Congress party will claim that they honured all their past presidents by releasing Postal stamps with their images.Some were given even chance to appear in coins, with many current political leaders who were accommodated to get support for INC when they lacked it.
    So BJP can not claim that only they are honouring Indias freedom fighters!
    But, it is a fact that most of the states do not teach Indian History to the children, and such things stopped perhaps in 1950s/60s as INC itself started grading the past leaders as useful and useless !

    Liked the back ground scenery with a granite pillar of lights usual in Kerala Temples, (outside) which was copied later by use of Bronze instead of Granite which was difficult to carve and transport, with chances of breaking/cracking and chisling Now a days such light towers aof some medium size 12 feet with a granite base are used as deco pices in front of mansions, but made by machines (Turning/polishing granite blanks of varying diameters)in Coimbatore,tamilanadu!.
