Going beyond the binaries of Congress and BJP, right-wing and left-wing ideologies, this special issue on Indian General Election, 2014 will engage in an honest debate about the government that should lead India for the next five years. Particular focus will be on the question of Prime Ministership. Is there more than a mass-murderer in Modi? Is Rahul ready to lead India? Can Kejriwal usher in a new mode of politics, despite his dubious beginning in Delhi?
This issue will try to bridge the binaries that have been more starkly felt after the public debate between Amartya Sen and Jagdish Bhagwati. We look forward to hearing from our readers about the sort of government they would like to see and about who should lead India in the next five years.
Café Dissensus welcomes submissions of short opinion pieces from our readers. Our special election issue will be published on 15 March, 2014. We invite our readers to submit their opinion on the following questions:
- Who should become India’s next Prime Minister (Modi/Rahul/Kejriwal etc.) and why?
- Which party/coalition should lead India for the next five years and why?
- What sort of economic, domestic, and foreign policy you want the forthcoming government to follow?
This is your chance to have your say and express an honest opinion. We invite short (200-300 word) opinion pieces from our readers. These pieces will be published on 15 March in our special issue on Indian General Election, 2014. The last date for submission is 10 March, 2014. Email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Along with the written pieces, we are also open to audio-visual content. If you would like to do a short interview (5 minutes), please feel free to send that to us. If you send us the rush copy, we can edit.
