Presidential election is about two months away. Poliical parties are in the process of finalising their candidates for thre top job. Many distinguished names are in the air, including that of incumbent President APJ Abdul Kalam, Lok Sabha speaker Som Nath Chaterji, Vice president Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, renowed Infosy chief Narayan Murthy, energy minister Sk Shinde, learned scholar Dr Karan Singh and a new entrant in the fray, foreign minister Pranab Mukherji. Undoubtedly they are all renowned and respected figures. In the din of electing next President, it needs to be kept in mind that the moment, the society in general and polity in particular are so polarised that only some mature person of integraity, totally apolitical and honest should be elected as the First Citizen of India. Through the above named worthies are all honourable personalities, yet APJ Abdul Kalam and Narayan Murthay are the most suitable. They are above controversies, apolitical and incorruptible.
Alternatively, political parties should reach consensus a;nd elect the next President uanimoulsy to avoid bitterness and unwanted divisions among various sections of people.

I personally object a second term, be it Mr. Abdukl Kalam ( with due respect)

Hi Raghu,

I agree with you that the person should not belong to any political background and should be free for controversy. I will vote for(hypothetically) Kalam and Krishnamurti, though there are 2 Bengali candidates :-)
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Yeah! We need an able person at the helm! I feel it shudnt b someone from a political party, cos president post is sth tht shudnt b alleged for anyth! thtz da last thing v wud want, n gvn our political scenario, tht cud happen given the prez is 4m sm political party!
tht leaves Kalam, NRN among better choices! I honestly dont think NRN still shud b gvn tht chance, infact, he shud b gvn sm responsibility of improvin FDIs n stuff! Hez a trade guy, so he ll do good thr!

Nice blog :)
