Christopher Nolan had directed a movie named The Dark Knight in 2008. The movie earned fame for an excellent act by Heath Ledger in the role of Joker. His acting was unmatchable; portraying a villain was never so perfect. Joker was so perfect as a villain that it has become a case study for psychoanalysis. The movie has a simple story, a superhero (Batman), a villain (The Joker), the villain wants to defeat the superhero and the latter is in no mood to accept defeat. Then, what makes the Joker so special? The mindset. The motive. The joker is not doing it for money. He is not doing it for power. Joker is not doing it to kill Batman — he didn’t when had the chance to. Every act of Joker, by his own admission, is compelled. Joker is at peace with himself. He accepts that he is an anarchist. When Harvey Dent asks him what his plan is, he replies, “Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know who I am? I am a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it. I just do things.” Joker says at another point, “Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order and everything become chaos. I’m an agent of chaos.” Arvind Kejriwal is to Indian politics what Joker is to Gotham City in the Batman series of DC Comics.

Kejriwal is calm; he is at peace with his anarchist nature. He dislikes the established order. Right from the beginning, he agitated the people. His agitation seems to have pure motives, but they are executed with anarchy (Remember the day when he called for a dharna on the gate of a local MLA/MP? It was a step to bring the system on its knees). By putting unreasonable demands before the parliament, he tried his best to make it people-versus-parliament, and he succeeded. He succeeds in achieving his ultimate aim: Anarchy.

Then, the same person who repeatedly claims that he won’t ever join politics ends up joining politics. Why? Because this man has no plans. He just wants to break the established order.

Then he insisted not joining hands with the Indian National Congress, but he did. Because Joker just does things.

Kejriwal got elected again and did nothing for more than four years. He even forgot his self-styled Jan Lokpal Bill. Because he is not the guy with a plan. Because he caught the car but didn’t know what to do with it.

At the end of the second term as chief minister, he just offered freebies to win another term. Why? Another line Joker says in The Dark Knight: “I do it because it confuses people.”

And now, when the world is fighting a pandemic, India is under lockdown, Kejriwal is doing his things. Bringing anarchy to the streets. Pushing people to the borders of Delhi. Defeating the whole purpose of the nationwide lockdown. Doing his best to disturb the order. Why? Because Joker loves anarchy.

There are a lot of videos, tweets, reports where we can see Kejriwal’s MLAs spreading rumours, his party colleagues asking people to leave and DTC buses dumping people on borders of the Delhi.

Delhi is not the only city in the whole country where people come to work from other states. But why is this disorder seen only in Delhi? Because Indian politics’ Joker rules Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal.

Kejriwal just introduced the anarchy, unsettled the established order and turned things into chaos. He is the true agent of chaos. I hope the Uttar Pradesh government is going to tackle this well, as seen in Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s past record. All we can say is this. If India goes into the third stage of the coronavirus outbreak, all credit goes to Joker.
