My grandfather was a lifelong supporter of the Congress (I). This was not a relationship he suffered lightly – he was perennially disappointed by the party. Like a wayward son one must love despite his shenanigans, my grandfather felt for the Congress Party through thick and thin; at least if his vote spoke the truth. He was not an ideologue; even if he were, there was no immutable ideology the Congress party ever offered. I believe his loyalty spoke of the nostalgia of the post-independence optimism and the not so subtle and consistently powerful effect of the Gandhi name.

There is something refreshing and refreshingly erudite about Aamir Khan. He always struck me as being at least two standard deviations favourably removed from the Bollywood mob evidenced by his economy of films, scarcity of emotions and attention to detail.
This sudden secular-uwaach of ex-Lalu loyalist Shivanand Tiwari from the dais of Nitish Kumar is very intriguing. To be fair to Tiwariji, he has not changed his secular-music. He had bee using the exact same language while sitting beside Laluji. Difference in those days was that Nitish Kumar used to counter it and rightly so.
