Nothing can be ever made to function without any flaws always. That goes for everything from machines, human bodies to laws and democracy. At some point something is bound to give up throwing the entire system out of gear. This is called glitch. And glitch is almost unavoidable, how meticulously one designs the system to run without error. But the problem starts when these glitches become too regular; at times even looking alarmingly fatal. Then it no more remains a mere glitch but a problem and problems are always detectable, rectifiable and avoidable as well, provided there is a gill to catch the bull by the horns. If problems are left to continue for whatever reasons, they more often than not blow themselves up to a proportion too big for comfort and crash down without giving any warning or notice. And when this finally happens it leaves a lot of things paralyzed.
Jokes apart, partition is something where we should come clean in bringing out all those thugs who allowed it to happen for personal gain. If at all we claim ourselves to be a serious nation, we must not forget that, it was not Jinnah who was against a single country but it was Nehru. The real issue was not just Hindu-Muslim devide either. It was something entirely different. The crux of the matter was the post of prime-minister which both Jinnah and Nehru were eyeing since the days they entered the freedom movement. If some one asks me, with all honesty, I no way find Nehru any better in terms of caliber than Jinnah to be the chosen one. In fact, I am sure Jinnah would have done far, far less damage to the nation than what this womanizer idiot did. Coming back to the topic, the real issue was two greedy men who were eyeing the post and a rift was eminent. Unsolicited sources confirm the rift dates back as early as 1936. One reason many claim why we got our independence in 1947; not earlier. To surprise many, even Mahtama Gandhi was not in for Nehru either. Sycophants are alerted since there is nothing like Gandhi tried to convince Nehru to leave the post for Jinnah so that the nation remains one. It was plain and pure rejection on the part of Mahatma for Nehru since he was aware of the self-serving attitude of Nehru and his then bootlickers. Mahatma was aware how dangerous it would be for the nation to have someone as selfish as Nehru to be the state head. But we call it destiny. Don’t we? Eventually it is the clown who wore the crown and we are still paying the price for that throne.
