The funnest aspect of Tamil nadu elections has been use of Vadivelu jokes on Vadivelu. My FB feed page is filled with vadivelu dialogues " entha oru vishayathayum plan panama pana ipude dan.plan pani pannuno ...okay...:)", "enna vachi comedy pannitangale" . People seem to be more curious about his fate than anyone else.
Even otherwise, elections are fun - they provide with ample news and the results business is so similar to a sports match result. Fun, fun all the way. I propose having an election every 2.5 yrs just for this.
Except there is no point to them because the results just alternate.
If either of them are really shrewd, JJ and KK could sign an agreement to alternatively loot TN every five years. Unfortunately,they are too greedy to cut an agreement like that. Also, Thatha is old and he has two large families to support. Naturally he feels he deserves more.
But Tamil people seem to be fair judge and provide equal opportunity to both. Though going by the online responses people are really hoping for a corruption-free government -what? - but like how? Not sure what they mean by that anyway.
My dad though said Jayalalitha's 2001 regime wasnt as corrupt except she took some strong anti-popular decisions. Hopefully that is true.
