Can the broom redeem dreams, sweep out the muck? 23.10.2014 DNA: Mumbai
The other day I got up and found my husband holding a broom, looking triumphant. “I’ve been cleaning the street,” he said.  I opened the newspaper. The centre page cartoon had Narendra Modi riding a broom, with a beat-them-all look. Just like Harry Potter. I turned on the news channel. Why, there’s Sachin Tendulkar wielding a broom, gripping it with well-gloved hands! Then comes the Mahatma, his footprints marching to “Ekla chalo re”. The rubbish on the lane magically collects and dumps itself on a wagon that sails in from nowhere, and voila! A row of houses appears in what looks like a London suburb. A voice exhorts us: “Make Gandhiji’s dream come true!” The next day, I am in New Delhi for a seminar. The taxi swings out of the airport and what do I see? A mammoth Swachh Bharat poster! As if on cue, the cab radio trills out a chirpy jingle -- “Kkleeheeeen Yin-d-i-yaa”. Says my Delhi friend, “The PM is spot on in demanding a Clean Revolution, in reclaiming Gandhiji’s goals.”  Suddenly, I remember a Tamil ...
