There are two challenges India faces today: An economy that is not growing fast enough, and a Hindi heartland that is stuck, its youth demotivated, and at risk of dabbling with extremism. Whether your party won or lost, it needs to start giving solutions to these challenges.
The politics of "us vs. them" needs to end. Every Indian is in the same boat, and wants the same things, regardless of the imaginary boundaries the politicians and media create. Remember the issues that you actually care about (as per the ADR voter survey): a desire for jobs, better healthcare, basic amenities, the urban environment and the agrarian sector.
Do not forget that these are the issues that trouble you, and you need to force politicians and the media to talk about YOUR issues. Do not give in to hearing the stories of politicians. Politics is about you, not them. Force your politicians to talk of pollution and roads, in place of God and glory. And, stop the rhetoric that you won/lost. India is not winning, if China's economy has become 5 times the size of India's over the last decades, or if the places you live in lack in basic quality of living (water, air, roads, public transport, jobs, schools and healthcare).
It is good that India will have a stable government for the next five years, and I hope that an era of land and labour reforms takes centre stage. We need to grow the economy, and 7-8% is not a good enough rate of growth. It is unsatisfactory, especially when India's neighbour is China which grew consistently at 10-15%.
With extremist candidates (e.g. in Bhopal) winning elections, there is a threat that India goes the way of parochialism not progress, and the youth (esp. in the North) invests its time and energy in delusional stories and not in skills. Rhetoricians cannot deliver growth, just good speeches. Rationality, policy, and enlightened ideas matter, even more so today.
