Politics has been treated as business by those who take part in it. Naturally in every family child follow what parent do. In most of the cases business in a family is inherited. This is why most of MPs and MLAs try that their son or daughter or brother or sister follows him and take his position irrespective of party they are associated with. Previously Nehru family was an exclusive illustration to quote with and now there are hundreds of such instances when existing MP, MLA or minister try his family member also to come in politics and occupy powerful position either during his life time or at least after his death.

After all family members of existing rulers also belong to 110 crore Indian family. There is no much pain if such thing happens democratically and in transparent and through justified process and as per acceptable norms and practices. Problem arises only when one try to impose his family member without the liking of general mass. Rabri Devi was forcefully given the se ...more

Dynastic rule continues due to weakness of political parties in India.For example,Congress as a national party ,first started eliminating dynamic &right thinking leaders of national repute to give prominance to Indira Gandhi&her sons.In the process,the organisational set up &noble principles of the party was shattered.Narasimharao somehow survived the dynasty.After him the party has been encouraging the people who are faithful &obedient to Sonia.Remaining leaders were either humiliated or insulted in the party and hence they were forced to leave.Now Congress is left with people who are sycophants to Sonia and her family.At the same time,Sonia is not interested in shouldering the responsibility and her aim is to make her son as heir apparent.Congress men have no guts to oppose her.Now one can easily draw his or her conclusion.

Slavery is in the blood of the Indians, politicians in particular ,since British-era. We love to be the stooges and advisors but never to rule like a KING.
Leadership qualities are born and can rarely be groomed.

Who is stopping them? The crux of the matter is that one needs to bend backwards to get there. Is the common man ready for it? It is a lot of hard work and also one has to be popular too.

Even if I am personallyagainst dynastic rule I feel that it the rules runs on healthy democratic principles there should be no objection for a \'prince\' to succeed.If we leave aside the personal factors Indirjee,Rajeevajee and even now Soniyaeee were not such wide off the mark. In fact may be as a result of Indira wave Rajeev secured so many seats for Congres as wasa record. I personally feel that Soniyajee should have been allowed to become the PM. Even now as the shadowPM she is giving a good account of herself . I have to congratulate Mr. Singh
who despite all the criricism has been carying on the mandate quite competently. Really speaking common people are not much interested who is at the helm as long as their needs are looked after. In the period immediately after the Bristish take over a leader Lokhitwadi had remarked that the change was not even registered with the common man.If anything there was a considerable feeling of relief with the cessation of constant hostilities.

Yes, it is the making of the corrupt ,selfish and cunning old congress politicians as a part of their political culture to profit under the banner of the NEHRU family ,because they pull down each others and do not want any one other than the those belong to the NEHRU\'S family to remain to head their political corporate,under which they survive and maintain their political mission conveniently ,safely and also keep their rivals and contestants under check, to make their niche in their political corporate.

The type of issue raised refers to personality cult in India. The moment people concentrate on real issues and consider politicians as mere managers and refrain from developing personality worship, dynastic rule and even its possibility will vanish.
