MA- MATI- MANUS (i.e.- MOTHER-LAND-MAN) Title of a popular play.
(Slogan of TMC)
KRISHI-SHILPA-MANUS (i.e.- AGRICULTURE-INDUSTRY-MAN)
Recent slogan of CPI-M.
Although hypothetical, these two slogans are to be the main focal point of the forthcoming election in W.B.
If we derive the two slogans, we can see two words ‘MA’ & ’MANUS’ which are animate rest of all are inanimate. Interestingly the presence of the common word ‘MANUS’ in both slogans. The word ‘MA’ in the first slogan pretends to draw some physiological attachment to stimulate the vote bank.
Now, easily we can formulate a new slogan:- MATI-KRISHI-SHILPA & MANUS
i.e.(LAND-AGRICULTURE-INDUSTRY & MAN). In this way there is no controversy in two different political ideologies fighting loggerhead. Both of them are committed for the cause of man (people of W.B) and to win the election for executing their ideology.

Where is the human face of the slogan? Every day man is being killed, even mother is not spared. Every effort is being made to stop the work of development –though it is scanty in nature. Land is acquiring for industries and railway to make the ‘man’ landless and at the same time stopping the project and vanishing the prospect of creating jobs into blue. Unfortunately, all the parties of different ideology, pretend to work for ‘man’, believe such slogan will pave there way towards the door of power. land of Burdwan
