Other than the societal connotation that the word “PoP” carries…(refers to father, dad, abruptly bumping off someone, uncorking a soda bottle)… I would also like to associate with a new terminology…

So “Pop”  refers to what I would like to call it as…the “Psychology of Politics“.. Let me expand it a wee bit…

In politics, it makes sense for the political fraternity to keep an issue boiling for long… to keep the embers simmering…Makes absolute bloody sense for the politicos…For as long as the problem exists… they are in demand….the folks are hopeful of a resolution through them…

The media in their relentless pursuit of truth tracks “problems that persist” and the coterie of politicians attempting to un-knot the problem… The focus remains on them….

The moment a problem is resolved… they are no longer in the spotlight for long…they are side stepped… for societies like to focus on problems… brewing problems…acute problems….and there are plenty all over the globe…

The world may subsequently recall the politician fondly… but that is going to be more of an obituary…It may not even bother to recall them….all the more risk….

For ex, there is a drought prone area… The politician, as part of the mitigation effort… would grant funds to drill more bore wells…but from where would the water come??

He knows that no solution would be arrived through this activity of drilling bore-wells…. But if it remains unresolved…. the very same folks would be back to him… the next summer… He is still in demand… he is still relevant…

Get the point….

The problems across the globe may vary… from the basic to the “sophisticatedly advanced”…but as long as the approach remains political…..fill in the blanks 🙂
