So we have it , two members of the "minority" at the helm of the nations's affairs--both scholarly & erudite. Both paragons of virtue and piety ( some would suggest of naivete ), too refined to be bothered about the dregs of the Lok Sabhas, and exemplary in their domains.

The Sardarji jokes are already doing the rounds. It's interesting that the man has never won a LS election--indeed, nice guys finish last, and that's the terrifying bit--how is this man going to placate and pacify those most servile and meretricious of old men, in their ill-disguised power hunt ?Politics is of, by and for the c.c.
