Congress has a supposedly fitting reply to the India Shining campaign of BJP, they now have a website called A Nation Betrayed (website now defunct) which highlights the antonym; though I wonder what took so long to wake them up. Apparently the site is put up by a youth wing of the party indicating that the top-ripe-brass is still fast asleep and lacks the professional look for apparent reasons. Amongst the prominent columnists on the site are Mani Shankar Aiyar and Salman Khurshid, who else. Wonder again, who would have put the right words in right mouth without these copy-writers.

Meanwhile the migration-game continues and BJP has suddenly emerged as the best reaper in the opportunism-bazaar where all kinds of migratory mix are available, most of them deprived-sidelined in their own flocks and going through the plights of the middle-age-crisis. Feel-good factor working or not BJP is has good deal of mastery on propagating the “deal-good” factor in Indian polity. So apart from Maneka/Varun Gandhis, Nazma Heptullah, Arif Mohammad Khan and Diggi Raja's hitherto non-entity bro you have Arjun Singh's son jumping in. Among others, Prafull Mahanta, Bhupen Hazarika, Bangarappa and Om Prakash Chautala's brother are following suit. Who next? Rahul Gandhi?
