Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal, minutes after being slapped while campaigning in Delhi, tweeted “I am just thinking – why am i being repeatedly attacked? Who r the masterminds?”.

The media went, as usual, trying to stoke up views for and against, polarising opinion on mundane issues like ‘why are not the rival political parties ‘condemning’ the incident?’

The general view among the rivals was, ‘we may condemn or not, but this is either stage-managed by AAP themselves to generate sympathy or they invited the discontent among the public’.

All this over-analysis avoided the moot point which Kejriwal answered before even being asked. His being attacked four times, twice in four days, were all minor incidents but could have been probably been avoided had he taken security.

One totally understands the reasons why AAP …. more

I came across this video on Twitter, but forgot to note down the original composer and singer. Apologies for the lack of credit.

Enjoy the musical aspects irrespective of your political inclination.
