Game of Thrones v/s Indian Politics

  1. 1. Know  the  characters  
  2. 2. Robert  Baratheon   Manmohan  Singh   Made  king  as  reward  for  winning  a  previous  war   Proved  u7erly  useless  as  poli:cal  leader    Going  through  the  mo:ons  while  rot  sets  in  and  the  country  bleeds  dry  
  3. 3. Cersei  Lannister   Sonia  Gandhi   Wants  to  rule  by  proxy   Only  faithful  to  the  family,  country  be  damned   A  queen  when  it  comes  to  power  grabs  No  clue  about  governance.  Thinks  just  puHng  faithful  people  will  handle  it  
  4. 4. Jeoffrey  Lannister   Rahul  Gandhi   No  qualifica:ons  whatsoever  Next  in  line  since  birth  although  controversy  surrounds  the  same   Everyone  dreads  the  day  he  comes  to  power  
  5. 5. Myrcella  Lannister   Priyanka  Gandhi   Nothing  to  do  with  the  game  except  born  in  the  family   Used  to  acquire  support  when  needed   Married  into  a  rich  family  that  hasn’t  go7en  involved  yet  
  6. 6. Tyrion  Lannister   P  Chidambaram   Competent  at  his  job.  Earnest  in  others,  but  unsuccessful.   Marginalized  in  effec:veness  by  people  around  him  Treated  harshly  by  those  above  him,  generally  the  one  blamed  
  7. 7. Grand  Maester  Pycelle   Pranab  Mukherjee   Incompetent  at  everything  he  has  done   Too  old  to  do  anything  about  anything  Posi:on  says  he’s  here  for  the  good  of  the  realm.  Instead  has  served  a  house   for  years.  
  8. 8. Balon  Greyjoy   Narendra  Modi  Biding  his  :me  for  years,  trying  to  grab  power  while  the  king  is  weak   Rules  with  an  iron  hand   Hated  by  his  own  people  
  9. 9. Stannis  Baratheon   NiAn  Gadkari   Nobody  wants  him   Backed  by  a  powerful  religious  group   Claiming  the  throne  with  barely  any  support  from  his  people  
  10. 10. Renly  Baratheon   Mulayam  Singh  Yadav  Told  he  should  be  king  by  those  around  him.  And  the  opportunity  has  arrived.   Has  gained  control  of  the  most  powerful  part  of  the  empire   Trying  to  ensure  support  from  the  powerful  Tyrells  
  11. 11. Margaery  Tyrell   Mamta  Banerjee   Incredibly  ambi:ous   Knows  the  game  inside  out   Will  support  anyone  just  to  be  close  to  the  throne  
  12. 12. Eddard  Stark   APJ  Abdul  Kalam   Held  in  high  regard.  Actually  cared  about  the  people.   Promoted  due  to  competence.  Least  interested  in  poli:cs.  Tried  to  do  the  right  thing.  Did  not  treat  the  powerful  differently.   When  you  play  the  Game  of  Thrones,  you  win  or  you  die  
  13. 13. Daenerys  Targaryen   Anna  Hazare   Adorn  a  symbol  of  long  lost  tradi:on  on  head   Far  away  from  mainland  poli:cs   Believe  what  they  are  asking  for  is  their  birth-­‐right  Some  see  as  hero.  Alterna:vely  seen  as  preachy,  delusional  or  cry-­‐baby.  
  14. 14. And  of  course...  WINTER  IS  COMING   Lok  Sabha  Polls  2013  
  15. 15. If  you  didn’t  already  guess…  There  will  be  unstable  governments.   Everyone  will  turn  on  each  other.   There  will  be  blood.  
  16. 16. Bran  Stark   300+  million   Some  of  them  have  never  seen  a  winter  before   This  might  be  the  longest  one  yet   They  are  already  hurt  and  afraid  They  might  have  magical  abili:es  but  will  that  make  any  difference?  
  17. 17. So  the  ques:on  as  always  might   remain  the  same…  
  18. 18. Where  are  my  Dragons  ???
