interesting to know that while there is no remorse about the fact that not a single Maharashtra player from a pool of hundreds of talented ones made to the national team Patil has gone and become manager of the Indian national kabaddi team “It is an utter shame” stated Nitesh Rane Congress MLA from Kankavli district “Maharashtra has kept kabaddi alive and we do not have a single player in the national team for the World Cup Local kabaddi players in my own constituency started questioning me on this MSKA needs to explain this lapse to the entire state There has to be accountability”

where the celeb and corporate owners are highly focused on the players and their performance But in MSKA there is no effort to understand the direction where the game is going Players did not even get the prize money in the Maha Kabaddi league organised by MSKA and the annual event did not even take place for two years” alleged Bhavsar When contacted Kiran Pawaskar MLC of NCP and Vice-President of MSKA admitted that poor representation is an issue “This is an eye-opener and we need to all come together to ensure Maharashtra gains its rightful position” he added Pawaskar who has played a key role in organising major kabaddi events for the association and the corporate world insisted that Ajit Pawar must come back at the helm of affairs of MSKA “Things will improve when Ajit dada leads the

selection of candidates and then the people vote This time aroundeven the carefully selected candidates are not good enough for the Mullahs Mir Hussein Moussavi is an ex-Prime Ministera man with a solid record of supporting the Khomeini revolution Even soit looks like the Ayatollahs panicked at Moussavis popular appeal Here was a man whose wife openly appeared with him in public and they even

the rest Stalin and Hitler and Mugabe and Mao and Pol Pot are all the same Power does corrupt and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely as Lord Acton so prophetically wrote a hundred years ago Democratic leaders are easy to remove It takes a war or a bloody revolution to remove a dictator China has not yet seen democracy and we can only wait for the sake of the Chinese people I desperately hope that the transition to democracywhen it comes to Chinaas it will eventuallywill be peacefulbut I doubt it Eventually democracy works because it does not rely on human perfection Indeed it exploits the imperfection that is endemic among human beings No single person is good enough to guide allno single source of power can be relied upon not to be fallible Democracy allows us to pool talents and then again remove one lot of imperfect rascals and try another People used to democracy know what it is to be disappointed They know the promises they have been made will only be partiallyif at allfulfilled But they dont mind because they know these leaders are imperfect There are others equally imperfect who are available to take their place India was close to losing its democracy in 1975 but it was lucky that two years later Indira Gandhi deluded herself that she could win an election That saved her and the nation India did not need a dictator to prosper Indeedthe years of single party dominance from 1947 to 1989 were years of slow growth Once that dominance wentgrowth perked up The country liberated itself from the certainty of single party rule Let the
