Coasting on word-of-mouth publicity, AAP brought to bear its propaganda skills to project a victory in the just-completed election to the assembly Contemplating the election just completed in Goa, my mind wandered to a Sunday afternoon a few years ago.At lunch in a friend’s place near Panjim, I found myself under assault by an “activist”.Fast forward to 2014, post the Hazare protest: A group of “activists” led by Arvind Kejriwal emerged to form the Aam Aadmi Party.Kejriwal’s group did surprisingly well in the ensuing elections to the assembly and was able to form a government with support from the Congress. Last year, when AAP announced it would contest elections in Goa, which is a particularly fecund political environment for activism, I was not surprised.It was a very new way of seeing her now and I was enjoying every moment of that.Now I just wanted to see her take bath so that I can see more of her now.

He challenged my assessment that the “India against Corruption” protest, then in full flower, was just another anti-Congress formation.
My interlocutor was the well-spoken scion of an influential Goan family and he took umbrage at my assertion that Anna Hazare, the figure head of the protest, was a congenital publicity hound.
All these years of living in the haven, I was witness to the mindless activism that challenged the long-reigning Congress on any and every development scheme or project.
So it was a village and people used to go to lake or pond for water for house hold activates and also for having a bath.
