The overdog wins…

It’s at times like this when one lets the thought cross the mind over that maybe democracy isn’t such a bad thing after all. The nation’s ‘secular’ media sits stunned despite their best efforts to the contrary. A conveniently-timed sting operation and supposedly earth-shattering revelations lie in tatters. The central government machinery’s best efforts didn’t amount to much. Neither did the full weight of the Power behind the power. Petty activists, publicity-hungry crusaders, international opinion, double standards. Bah humbug! The people of Gujarat have spoken. Speak up now and be spoken of as one who is a creature of conveniently contextual morals.
