Emperor Ashok for president

with one comment

NDTV reports that Mamata Banerjee still wants Kalam for president:

Ms Banerjee’s whole-hearted support for Dr Kalam, which included a Facebook campaign, has been cut short by the scientist’s announcement today that he will not run against Mr Mukherjee. On Fcebook [sic], Ms Banerjee posted, “I have seen your statement that you are not contesting. This news has hurt all of us deeply.” She also said, “Some political parties simply failed the people at this critical moment in responding to the clarion call given by so many common citizens of our nation to stand up for a man of impeccable integrity.”

Since the realm of possibilities is too narrow when you look for the correct candidate, I would suggest a man who united India: emperor Ashok of Magadha. No political party will support this, but who cares? They are only artists of the possible.

  1. I like the idea. After all, it’s been done before: a missing king was represented by his slippers and his brother ruled in his place. We can have the slippers/shoes (useful in more ways than one, in modern times, as we know) and every one can choose who the slipper represents!! Maybe we should start calling the post the oracle instead.
