House of Cards Season 5 #HOConZCafe - Chessboard Pieces Play The Game

By Jaideep Khanduja @PebbleInWaters

House of Cards Season 5 is all about Politics. Politics is like a chessboard. But with a difference. In the real world, politics it is played by human beings. In politics, human beings become the pieces of the board. And strangely few of the pieces also become the players of the game. There are many similarities in both. At the same time, there are many differences too. Firstly. in real chessboard, there are 64 squares. In politics, this pattern is not fixed. There are squares, dots, lines, triangles, and all kind of other geometric shapes. Secondly, in real chess, the power of various pieces is fixed. But in politics, the pieces have to derive their power from within and surroundings. In fact, no piece ever comes to know how powerful the other piece is. In politics, it is a game of perception, guts, and passion. But one thing is sure.

Emotions have no place in real politics. That is what House of Cards Season 5 conveys. Rather, it is like a war every moment you spend in politics. The best or the worst part is you never know what is going to happen next moment. But still, there are some players who become the drivers and make the things happen at their will. Though it is possible but not so easy. Everybody can't create that rare but right combination of guts, wits, and confidence. It is not only about knowledge. Rather, it has to be a step ahead. It is really like a war. You never know what next situation will be. But you have to prepare, mold, and transform instantly according to the new situation every next moment Brings. Promises, words, and commitments have no meaning in politics.
