The leader of the main opposition party is on an indefinite fast in protest against the governments’ luke warm approach on some problems. It could be water scarcity, flood, prise rise or power cut. If there is a will, there is a way. If the above said issues are taken care of by the government, other issues would crop up to enable the opposition leader to steel the lime light. Indefinite fast is less tiresome (‘fastfood’ is made available by the smart party workers.) Anyway, the opposition leader has to spend sleepless nights in order to create an impression that the ruling party leaders are incompetent and lethargic.
The ruling party leaders on the other hand, get a taste of what they gave while they were in the opposition. The people have become smarter these days, whoever is in power, they manage to get what they want!

Author: P U Krishnan

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
