Wordle US & Indian Constitution, Congress & CPI(M) Manifesto

Since it was intro­duced last year, Wor­dle has been very pop­u­lar with blog­gers and the gen­er­al pub­lic. So I decid­ed to join in the fun. Here are the US and Indi­an Con­sti­tu­tion wor­dle out­puts:

Obser­va­tions? Noth­ing sur­pris­ing here.

  • Putting aside Law, observe the empha­sis on Leg­is­la­ture, Leg­isla­tive, and Court in the Indi­an con­sti­tu­tion. Nei­ther of these are promi­nent in the US Con­sti­tu­tion.
  • Gov­ern­ment is promi­nent in the Indi­an con­sti­tu­tion. Noth­ing like that in the US.
  • Cit­i­zens are Peo­ple in India, and Major­i­ty is not so impor­tant in the con­sti­tu­tion as in the US.
  • Time is eas­i­ly vis­i­ble in the US, not in India.

Oh, the more you look at it, the more you’ll find stuff!

Sud­heen­dra Kulka­rni says that major polit­i­cal par­ties in India are tak­ing man­i­festo prepa­ra­tion very seri­ous­ly. He says:

When it comes to man­i­festos of polit­i­cal par­ties, a sec­tion of the intel­li­gentsia and the media exhibits a dis­mis­sive ten­den­cy that riles polit­i­cal activists like me. A major nation­al dai­ly last week called man­i­festo-mak­ing noth­ing but a “cut-and-paste” job. This ten­den­cy is symp­to­matic of a larg­er habit of the chat­terati sneer­ing from the com­fort of their well-fur­nished draw­ing rooms at all polit­i­cal par­ties, indeed at the polit­i­cal process in gen­er­al. The real­i­ty is quite oth­er­wise. Most polit­i­cal par­ties, espe­cial­ly those with a nation­al per­spec­tive, have begun tak­ing pol­i­cy issues—and, by exten­sion, man­i­festo preparation—far more seri­ous­ly than before.

So let’s look at the Con­gress and CPI (M) 2009 Elec­tion Man­i­festos. The BJP one is expect­ed this week. I’ve removed ‘Indi­an’, ‘Nation­al’, and ‘Con­gress’ from the Con­gress one, and ‘CPI’ from the CPI(M) one.

  • Pub­lic Sec­tor and work­ers are obvi­ous­ly very dear to the Left, while the Con­gress is bet­ting a lot of mon­ey on youth.
  • Women are equal­ly impor­tant to both par­ties.
  • Pro­tect – clear­ly vis­i­ble in the CPI(M) — is nowhere in the Con­gress, while it is strong­ly focus­ing on some­thing New.
  • Police finds a rea­son­able men­tion in Con­gress, while I couldn’t find it in the CPI(M).
  • Growth is huge for Con­gress, it is nowhere in the CPI(M).
  • Reforms are equal­ly low on the agen­da of both par­ties. 🙁

I had ear­li­er men­tioned Text Analy­sis Tools, but Wor­dle makes it sim­pler and more fun than ever before!

  • Hi Mahen­dra,
    It would be inter­est­ing to com­pare Indi­an and British con­sti­tu­tions too. Its also inter­est­ing to see that the word ‘Pres­i­dent’ is more vis­i­ble than ‘Prime Min­is­ter’ in Indi­an con­sti­tu­tion.

    The only lim­i­ta­tion of Wor­dle fora blog is that it reads the first page only. But per­haps thats a fea­ture… 😉

  • oo, I shouldn’t be com­ment­ing on this since pol­i­tics and I love each oth­er as much as Karunanid­hi and Jay­alalitha, but wor­dle got my atten­tion.

    Wor­dle is FUN. I have enjoyed and spent many an hour on that sweet lit­tle toy. I am very hap­py to inform you that I have passed on that infec­tious lit­tle play­thing to more than a dozen of my good friends.

    Neat wor­dle.

  • Have an inter­est­ing update to my post that you liked. This is an awe­some tool. Thanks again for bring­ing it to may atten­tion.
