Teddy Bear Political Party - Teddy Bear Election Sign

These days media across the globe is busy showing the news about upcoming elections in the largest democracy in the world. Yes I'm talking about the upcoming elections in India, theres news about these elections every where in the print media, TV and internet. Internet is full of fans posting pics about political parties trying to expose the rivals. Political parties in India are also spending a lot over advertisement every where.

Now while I was reading the recent post at this blog for teddy bears, I realized that is was a politician behind the popularity of teddy bears. You car refer to this post for more details. Just to summarize in the year 1902, then then president of the United Stated, Mr. Theodore Roosevelt once on a hunting trip refused to shot a bear. Soon after that event a cartoon was published in media and the cartoon become viral. The bear in the cartoon looked very cute and given the popularity it got Morris and Rose Michtom from New York created a soft toy bear and named him Teddy Bear in honor of the president Theodore for not killing the bear.

I wonder had Mr. Theodore been a politician in India and started his own political part, he could have named is Party Teddy Bear party of India and the sign of the political party would be a teddy bear perhaps in tri-color. Now below is my imagination of some teddy bear political parties names and the signs (logos) of those political parties. Kindly take a look:

1. Teddy Bear Party of India

2. Aam Teddy Beary Party - AAP -
