Though I was not sure of my victory, still the number of votes cast in my favour is too humiliating to be mentioned, in comparison to those who won. I admit it’s my worst defeat, ever, in any elections.
A similar defeat ridiculed me at the Delhi Union of Journalist (DUJ) elections in 2006 when I contested for the post of General Secretary. True, being popular is one thing and winning elections the other. At both places – the Press Club & the DUJ – I had intervened in a war between the members, persuading them to come to terms; to protect these great institutions.
However, on both occasions, I lost; and I lost miserably. A cause was lost too.
Six months after the DUJ elections, I resigned its membership, feeling insulted. Can’t say if I would surrender my Club membership this time.
