And for a Saturday, a few stray thoughts and a few general observations and a few points of view (all my own work):
Like it is a good thing that the parliament has given a vote of confidence to the new government. Because I do not think the people of India can never give a vote of confidence to a government that they have not elected, and, in fact, voted against.
And the sooner the prime minister appoints his council of minister, the better for the ministers. Because, as it is, the governmetn is not going to last long, and every day's delay is a day less for these people to be ministers.
Like I am happy to note that Mr. Rajiv Gandhi has not said that Mrs. Maneka Gandhi should not be a minister. But what I would like to know is: Who is he to say that also?
Like there must be some justice left in politics. The greatest manipulator and plotter has been left out in the cold Mr. Arun Nehru Nehru.
Like I may be totally wrong, but I think that this entire exercise we are going through is in order to get Mr. Rajiv Gandhi back as prime minister. And that would be a disaster.
Like the only way Mr. Mulayam Singh Yadav can survive is to make the reservations in UP 100 per cent.
Like the state of India politics can be gauged from this: In the first noconfidence motions, Mr. Advani voted against Mr. V.P. Singh; in the second motion, Mr. Advani voted with Mr. Singh.
Like all these years my opinion of Mr. Chandra Shekhar was poor, innocent, fool. Now, my opinion of Mr. Chandra Shekhar is poor, innocent, fool.
And these stray thoughts:
Like I do not understand amateur boxing. What is the point in having a boxing contest if all the time the effort is to prevent the boxer from getting hurt! And what is this standing count! If a boxer is on his feet, he should continue to fight.
Like give me progessionla boxing any time, where the winner keeps slugging the loser till he knocks him out into unconsciousness.
And, one question: Is John Crasto speaking like an Englishman or an American?
Like the time has come for another cricket season. Let us settle down before out TV sets.
And this final point of view:
That is I was asked, I would put two conditions A Janata Dal government without V.P. Singh and a Congress-I government without Rajiv Gandhi.
