Slap-Happiness from Gandhi to Anna is a spontaneous `short cut` without a choice
Let us not forget that Mahatma Gandhi the global crusader of Non-Violence during world war-I appealed to Indian youth to join British Army. There was no other choice for Mahatma at that time to support and protect the British India and its unequal colonial systems against Global War.Later during Quit India Movement when Indian protesters on few occasions had put a police station on fire and killed police constables Mahatma threatened to withdraw the agitation and went on fast. In India today from Army to State Police the law enforcing mechanism with a “danda”(baton) is expected to deliver justice at the sites. Nothing has changed since then. People continue to protest against police and army atrocities. Today at Republic Day the police and Para-military is expected to have an additional protocol to stop shoe throwing and slap interventions.
What is the harm if Anna enjoys a premier of the Bollywood Movey- “Gali Gali Mein Chor Hai” ?Anna has a right to react in a common style of 99% wherein the hero in the film beats the corrupt crook and slaps and wins. `Short cut` of slap politics as a solution is forced on the Common man.Slap-Happiness from Mahatma Gandhi to Anna is a spontaneous `short cut` without a choice. When a politician is slapped there is a debate in the Parliament and the Aam Admi is sent to jail. A village Sarpanch and leader of Punjab’s ruling Shiromani Akali Dal has repeatedly slapped a lady teacher as shown on Television, who was demanding a permanent contract and a job, at a function in Muktsar district in Punjab but Parliament closes its eyes and ears on this event. Police fails to arrest and is present at the site of this slap incidence.
Slap-Happy fashion should serve the Government`s divisive systems which forces people on road to use slap to “fire fight” their own anger. Where should Aam admi go ? CBI or Police ? For justice & get killed as Whistle blowers.

Strong effective Laws if are delivered in time can help. But Laws get hanged like Lokpal in Sansad for 44 years. If laws are applied correctly fast justice and distribution of wealth generated can encourage more & more people to work as a team. This will ensure less conflicts and with better governance no `slap politics` and no Protests. Politicians at large must stop nursing the governance of 1% people and should finish their promises made to people in time. For more details read via google my article published by Governance Now : Politicians Must Stop Protecting Governance of 1%.
Only constructive participation of people, more jobs and effective laws with speed justice can stop slap politics. Till then the Government must close down the Bata, Action and other Shoe & hawai chappal making companies if this problem in Public continues. For stopping slap sensation and happiness are there any short cut ? Will the politicians and media suggest ?
Only hand cuffs as suspected criminals need to be put in common man wrists when they are allowed to attend a political meeting. What about chairs, mike, paper weight, money bundles & shoe throwing with abuses in Parliament and Vidhan Sabha ?
House discipline in People to Politician(P2P) engagement must flow from the Top.
Jai Hind !
