Sad but....!

BB's assassination is a brutal, tragic and heartwrenching story alright, particularly when viewed from the eyes of her three young children, one of whom is all set to take up the dynastic reins of the political party! So much for a democratic succession from a supposed democratic crusader!

While the event is certainly grim and may have some serious implications for India if the situation isn't handled properly, the media needs to get some grip on itself! BB was a great leader and ga ga and all that, but some sections of the media who are painting a pretty picture of the politician having a soft spot for India need to get their history right.....

Thanks so much to Francois Gautier for this breath of fresh air among all the nauseating obits!
