Sanjeev Goes Sufi!

Sanjeev Shukla is the first elected state NSUI president of Chhattisgarh. Besides being a lawyer, he is also a singer and entertainer par excellence.

He was recently invited to preside over a Qawwali function at Kawardha in which quite a few notable sufi singers were to perform. Quite naturally the audience were more interested in listening to the music than in hearing politicians (Sanjeev included) make long, dull speeches.

Sanjeev therefore very wisely decided to desist from speechifying and instead donned his Sufi-singer's cap, going on to give a superb impromptu rendition of the popular sufi anthem, Piya Haji Ali. Needless to say, the mostly rural audience were thrilled- and the politicians saved from the inevitable jeering!

To me, Sanjeev- and several others like him- represent the emerging politicians of today's India.

संजीव ने उस दिन कमाल कर दिया , ग्रामीण छेत्र के लोगो ने पहली बार ऐसे नेता को देखा होगा जो मनोरंजन भी करता है ,बहुमुखी प्रतिभा का धनी है ,और हो भी क्यूँ नहीं ,आखिर शागिर्द किसका है, आपका चयन लाजवाब है भैया ,

Singing is performing and that takes something from within.........no more words on this article because he has that ability of joining the people (most characteristic feature of a long term politician)
