Political chameleons in India?

You may call me a cynic, but as the massive elections finally draw to a close in India I wonder what, if anything, will change when there is a new government?  I would like to think that India will move away from the corruption which has plagued it in the past, and that some of the wealth of this nation will go to those who are most in need. But perhaps little will change – except the promises made by politicians.

This isn’t a criticism of Indian politicians alone. How many people around the world have been frustrated when the promises made by the people they voted for just don’t materialize?

Let’s hope that the new representatives who are sworn in will honour their election promises and not change their colours overnight – unlike like these wonderful Indian chameleons!
