The BJP should take heed to what has been recommended in this essay (Commentary, "Needed: organic BJP," 15 June 2009). The time has arrived for a clear break from the thinking that has so far directed the party and its leadership. The party has to change with the times. India's population is young and wants to be engaged in productive activities. It is impatient for a better quality of life. Its political philosophy may not be well-formed and is subject to much influence by political parties. But it still has an underlying religious and cultural background, which will guide its political values.
