Some Sense Of Proportion… Please



Digvijay Singh - "It is a very small thing and for anyone else it wouldn't have mattered...for the transport minister of the government of India, who is violating the law which he had to be enforcing, then it does make a difference," he said. "This reflects the attitude of the leader and the party, whether they believe in following the rules or not."

Yes - It looks bad when the Transport Minister is caught breaking the law. Agreed.

Here is what you do. You invite the press and show them that the Minister was issued a citation for the offence and then show the receipt confirming that the Minister paid the fine. Party members and Press/PR officers to make sure that the Minister is not photographed smiling while receiving the ticket or paying the fine. Baat khatam. Publicity bhi ho jaayegi.

What it doesn't call for is STRONG REACTIONS from the public or from the opposition. Seriously yaar… have you been to India? There are bigger and better and more important things to be making an issue of.

Dikhaawon pe mat jaao. Apni akal ladaao.
