Ha! Politics, noun, A strife of interests masquerading as contest of principles. The conduct of public affairs for private advantage – says Ambrose Bierce, in The Devil’s Dictionary. How true, look at the great tamasha that has been going on over the bill.
Modi, wave is on, he is being himself without actually bothering about things.
Rahul who the media is pinning against him on the other hand has nothing really to show for other than few pathetic attempts to be part of a nation that sustains him and his family. Probably even the extended family in Italy. Rahul Gandhi the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi lineage Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere , diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedy.
For the congress, a party that is fatigued carrying the burden of power and corruption, time for re-invention has become mandatory.
How do you solve a problem like Modi..?

So the bill was created. While all this was on Rahul like Kumbhakarna slept through it. When the war was announced, he bounced up slaying the bill, hoping to create the shinning Knight of congress, the Messiah of the congress who has come to cure them of the evil shadow of Corruption.
He plays the hero who is fighting the stalwarts of congress to bring in hope and happiness.
Please the people such dramatics. You are in the murky politics of a country which knows without referring to Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s dictionary that vote is the instrument and symbol of a freeman’s power to make a fool of himself and wreck his country. So despite, Robert Vadra, Bofors, and your testosterone tantrums come elections ….congress will emerge winner hook or crook and of course, courtesy the uneducated both of the literate and illiterate kind. Let the senior man have some dignity and grace before he retires (hopefully)
Oh! By the way thanks to you people are aware that a bill is being considered, some of us even learnt that bill, had a greater connotation than being a first name, or a promissory note. We also became aware of the process of getting a bill passed.
