Rotting from the Head?
A few days back, an editor of a national English daily, in reference to 2G spectrum and other scams, wrote a very bold article holding the top political leadership of the ruling party responsible. No doubt, they are responsible and happy that majority of media and nation at large are happy closing eyes to this obvious and simple fact. But what about the rest of the body? It is also rotting except probably the limbs. It is probably the lower and deprived strata of society that are still keeping the nation going and carrying a rotten body. The Radia tapes (about existence or implications of which I had no idea when I wrote 'fastest fingers first') have established that the rot is complete in all critical organs. The effectiveness of money-power in panchayat elections shows how widespread is the rot. Still there must be some hope somewhere.
