From: Signora Sonia. To: Shri Narendrabhai Modi

On January 29, Gujarat chief minister Narendra Damodardas Modi, speaking in Gujarati, said he had written several letters to the Union government on the issue of rising prices but had not heard back.

“I think I now need to write in Italian,” he said, raking up for the nth time Sonia Gandhi‘s foreign origin.

He did.

churumuri.com is pleased to reproduce the Congress president’s response*, in Italian*, in full*, which he (and his supporters and followers) may read using Google‘s wonderful translation service.

Mio caro Narendra Modi Damodarbhai

Accuso ricevuta della Sua lettera bella del 29 gennaio 2010 sulla questione del rialzo dei prezzi.

Come sempre, la tua straordinaria cortesia nei confronti delle donne, soprattutto donne non indù che non si vede negli occhi, è una bella lezione per i giovani di questo paese e le persone di origine indiana all’estero. Dove avrebbero dovuto imparare le lezioni linguistiche, senza grandi leader come te?

Damodarbhai, visto che siamo ad amici intimi e poiché io sono più vecchio di te, spero non ti dispiaccia la mia rivolgo a lei come “Little One” da ora in poi. Tutto bene?

Little Narendra, vi lamentate che avete scritto al governo centrale per l’aumento dei prezzi più volte “in una lingua che capisce”, ma non hanno sentito da loro. È possibile, appena possibile, che dopo la sconfitta del suo partito nelle elezioni del 2009, si può aver dimenticato l’indirizzo corretto a Delhi? O forse il tuo petto 56-pollici, quello che si chiamano con orgoglio “chhappan ki chaath” impedisce di vedere da quale parte del francobollo si stavano leccando?

Un po ‘, io sono commosso dalla vostra preoccupazione per il benessere dei poveri e degli emarginati della nostra società. Come vorrei che voi e il vostro “mercanti di morte” sono state mostrando tanta preoccupazione per i poveri e gli emarginati nel 2002? O ogni volta che voi e il vostro partito a nudo la tua zanne comunali?

Sulla questione del rialzo dei prezzi, dal momento che siete amici stretti con quali capitani di industria, come Ratan Tata e Anil Ambani e Sunil Mittal, sono sicuro che lei sa che i prezzi non sono solo un risultato delle politiche del governo, ma di tempo e globale come pure i prezzi. Inoltre, ne sono certo, come presidente del Gujarat Cricket Association, che l’onorevole ministro per l’agricoltura, Sharad Pawar, è stato impegnato con la Indian Premier League.

Capisco la tua impazienza, dato che uno dei vostri governi è stato votato sulla questione dei prezzi di cipolla, ma che è stato molto tempo fa. Così, a poco prima, spero che mostrano la pazienza che la gente del paese grande dell’India, hanno dimostrato di Cheapskates come te. Come dimostrano i risultati delle elezioni del 2009 prova, gli elettori di India sono saggi. Non rientrano per il tentativo vergognoso il suo partito a dipingere una figlia-in-law come un «outsider» e non cadrà per questo.

Di solito non mi sarei preso la briga di rispondere a un tale colpo basso, Little One, ma visto che sono così desiderosi di fare il punto, ho pensato, Chalo, cazzo. Prima di concludere mi permetto di ricordarvi che le prossime elezioni sono ormai cinque anni di distanza, ma non fa male a iniziare presto.

Rimango yours,
Sonia Sorella

    SG is perfectly capable to responding to Modi in literally these words and getting away with it.

  2. Alok Says:

    I am surprised Churumuri is actually in favor of Sonia over this issue.

  3. Clipped.in - Explore Indian blogs Says:

    :-) that was really Tongue in cheek..

  4. Phase Shift Says:

    Ridicule gone wrong. Revolting.

  5. dodo Says:

    An extremely poor reply , I must say! Nothing but contrived ( and failed) attempt at sarcasm. Sarcasm is fine, were it to be laced laced with some real logic!

  6. Cool dude Says:

    What the ‘cazzo’?!!! pessimo gioco di parole, churumuri…

  7. Uday Shetty Says:

    Narendra Modi is future of India. He can learn Italian in a day. He is brilliant and Intelligent. He doesn’t need Google. He has made Gujarat numero uno state in India. Hats off to Modiji. On the other hand in Karnataka un-employed congress people and 3 gowda idiots are not allowing BJP to do development. Everyday they are creating problems to Yeddiji. But people are smarter and they will definitely elect BJP second time in the state. Media people take money from Congress folks and write rubbish about BJP all the time , but Yeddiji is very positive because he is real mannina maga. Jai Ho BJP!

  8. varsa.sagar Says:

    why to go google everybody, check the translation!

  9. Kitapati Says:

    This is funny. But Mama Mia Sonia and team sound too overconfient. The next elections might not be such a smooth ride for conggies. unless they rig the elections. They of course have the whole mainstream media supporting them. Price rise is treated as a footnote by the mainstream media.

  10. THE TRUTH Says:

    Hi Churumuri,

    Do not understand UR intensions in this post….. U think The central govt not responsible for the raising price rise… U say that the previous govt also had such rises in price rise… That is the reason may be they are out of power… but the present govt is worse in the sense that they raked up this issue back in 2004 elections and won(of course among many other not so important issues which people thought were important)…. But I feel they have only ended up rising it further than cribling it… am writing this comment at a time when the PMO has been recommended huge rise in LPG and Kerosene prices…. I feel this is sinner than even other crimes… People’s basic needs is food and security both of which the govt did not better in the last 5 yrs…lol… So idea what will happen next…

    GOD save US…

  11. Hiker Says:

    Alok,

    I am surprised that you are surprised.

    Hey Come on!!!!! Where is your sense of humour? It was just a little wink wink nudge nudge kind of leg pulling….
    You guys on the left need to learn to relax a little and not take every small thing that NaMo does to such an extent…

  13. Gaby Says:

    I dont like Sonia Gandhi at all but to give her credit where due…..

    When will the crude saffron men understand that Sonia is a subtle woman who grew in Indian politics observing her tyrannical mother inlaw, brash brother in law and naive husband and where they all ended up ! She has also seen the Loud mouth Advani and the insensitive Mulayams/ Laloos consigned to the dustbin of history!

  14. Giovanni Says:

    Bravissimo, Churumuri. Avete scritto la verita con un bel cuchiao di sarcasmo. Sicuro che il Little One ed i suoi sostenitori capirà lo spirito se non le parole!

  15. tsubba Says:

    the cheapest, most desperate post ever in churumuri. absolutely the worst. ever.

    Gaby. the point is price rise. why? bcoz in india as things stand, the govt decides what the prices are. why? bcoz te stated argument was to prevent possible cases of price gouging. ok. i dont know economic theories, but say it is a wise for sarakara to decide prices.

    if that is the case, then at these high prices, the govt has to answer. why exactly the prices are high. what exactly has gone wrong for beLe to be priced so high. did you hear about the rates? my jaws dropped even when i was converting to $.

    it is one thing to talk about politics and quite another to beat our chests when things like nutrition etc come up. in india, as things stand, they are all related. govt policies have had huge impacts on what grows where and how and, how they are sold.

  16. Gaby Says:

    TS- dont get me wrong. I blame Sonia Gandhi – as the supreme commander of the UPA – as fully responsible for the atrocious price rises that the country is suffering. I was commenting about the antics such as the initial letter in Italian. SG will simply raise an eyebrow, talk some rubbish and voila 5 years later will win another GE and leave the Saffron thugs in her wake- while the country suffres more.

    All I am asking for is a sensible and focussed political opposition.

  17. Anonymous Guy Says:

    Price rise is the issue. Fine.

    So why this stunt of writing in Italian? And why Sonia Gandhi – why not the minister in charge of food prices?

    By this same token, shouldnt a non-Gujarati reject a fellow like Narendra Modi because he is a Gujarati bania who only thinks about profit and doesnt care about anything else?

    Wonder what his real opinion is of kannadigas, since we speak a language he cannot comprehend. Does he hate kannadigas as much as he hates lower caste people, muslims and christians?

    Luckily young people of India dont think his narrow minded way, and we can see that in the election results.

    Price rise will come and go, we are still decades away from a system of good governance and sane policies.

  18. kavitha Says:

    AG

    >>Does he hate kannadigas as much as he hates lower caste people, muslims and christians?>>

    Narendra Modi himself is a lower caste person…he is Gaaniga by caste if that helps.

  19. kavitha Says:

    AG

    >>Luckily young people of India dont think his narrow minded way, and we can see that in the election results.>>

    Do you mean the Gujarat elections where he has been consistently winning thus far :)

  20. Narayana Says:

    This is too much.. Did Sonia really use word “cazzo”. It means dick in Italian!!!! Anyway Indian politicians can use devegowda dictionary to improve their oratory skills.

    http://nadunudi.wordpress.com/2010/02/04/devegowda-dictionary/

  21. mysore peshva Says:

    bene! solo idiota

  22. gaby Says:

    AG, how did you draw the correlation between election results and young people not thinking in a ‘narrow minded’ manner!!!

  23. Alok Says:

    @Hiker: Even you will be surprised when you sit back and think how easy it was for an Italian to be the leader of a ruling party in India. We are just one election away from an Italian occupying the top position in our country.

    I am sure many of you will not like my comment calling it narrow minded, myopic and what not. Maybe Sonia Gandhi is a great leader etc etc, but she is NOT AN INDIAN. That’s the bottom line. There is no way she can understand the Indian cultural system, which I feel is most important for any person to become the PM.

    There is nothing wrong with raking up the issue of citizenship. It is a valid point.

    It is also well known, that Sonia Gandhi needs her speeches to be written in Italian(hindi words in Italian) so she can read them out. Staying in India for most of her life, she has not learned to speak in Hindi which is the official language(NOTE:not the national language) of India. It is very surprising that churumuri decides to take her side when it is obvious who is at fault.

  24. Anand Says:

    # Well said, Modi

    Whether you like Modi or not..you must give credit to him for eliciting some response from UPA which has been sleeping over price rise issue.

    To drive home your point if the other person is not listening, in Kannada you say something like ” yaave baashe yalli helabeku “. Narendra Modi said something similar that got Congress goat..they got the much overdue shock treatment they badly needed. The use of words by Modi is somethign UPA asked for.

  25. Doddi Buddi Says:

    Alok,

    Thank you for a great lucid post.

  26. Yella Ok Says:

    Well, the intention might be tongue-in-cheek, but it will not really seen to be – especially cazzo, et al. This will only grow the divide between the media and those on the the other side of media’s views.

  27. Anshuman Patel Says:

    @Alok:

    I respect your opinion on Sonia Gandhi. But I differ on this.

    It won’t be in consonance with our Indian ethos to reject her just because he/she is an ‘outsider’ or a ‘foreigner’. There may be many other reasons of suitability to jettison her but not her origin.

    Over the millennia, several groups or individuals from all over the world have come and made India their home. History talks about many such interesting migrations and assimilations over the time. If we go by some of these sources, Chitpavan Brahmins trace their ancestry to Berbers/Scythians originating from Iraq/Greece. Similarly Shakadwipi brahmins trace their ancestry to Iran. Then we have the Aryan migration theory (albeit much discredited of late)!

    Ofc some of these migrations are from the hoary past and would have conflicting narratives. But looking around the mix in India, it is not difficult to see the various strands that have got woven into our fabric over the time.

    In the recent past, Parsis and Jews are a good example of the folks who came in and got assimilated. Tatas are well-entrenched in the Indian psyche now and I wonder if many will cavil at the thought of a Persian becoming a president/PM if a Tata were to become one.

    From that perspective I find it difficult to reject SG’s candidature solely on the basis of her alien roots. May be we are not ready as yet to accept an Italian or a white-skinned person. But say after a few centuries, would we? I think it’s possible. May be the Italians would be the ‘new’ Parsis – about whom we the native ones would have grown in comfort level.

    There are several reasons for opposing SG’s candidature for PM or for that matter president-ship of INC. One can question her experience, acumen, suitability, skills, knowledge about local/global issues etc. They are all valid points and need to be raised. But her foreign origin? I am afraid not.

    Reg. speaking in Hindi etc, a DG or a Karunanidhi are equally aliens in the Delhi Durbar though they are the quintessential Indians, aren’t they?

    To me the most important qualities a person heading the nation should have are heart in the right place, sharp/analytical mind, resonance with local/global issues, a sense of urgency towards action/implementation. Senora seems to have the first quality and the rest I am not sure and I don’t know:)

  28. Sudhir Says:

    Alok,
    Italian is written in the same script as English. In other words, if SG’s speeches are “hindi words in Italian”, then they are written in English.

    By the way, do elaborate on what you mean by “the Indian cultural system” and the language issue? Would it be best represented by the Thackerays who want Mumbai for Marathi manoos only – and no Hindi please, altho’ it is the official language as you rightly point out.

    How about the indefatigable(!!) ND Tiwari or the Reddys of Bellary ($$$) or Mayawati (statue!) or the incredible Sharad Pawar (Minister for 20/20) as symbols of of our political ethos? They are Indian by birth and that is all that counts, right.

    Why is it ok if Narendra Modi wants to write a letter in Italian (fact) but not ok if SG wants to reply in the same language (even if this is just a Churumuri joke)?

  29. Sudhir Says:

    Forgot to add that the Thackerays believe that people like you and me should not watch movies which they don’t like. And there are Senes which dislike pubs and beat up people going to them.

  30. Boochi Says:

    Alok Miya, Agreed with you you on the Citizenship issue, I have a similar view, however for my understanding and clarity can you please take the pain to explain to me who are classifed as Indians and what makes them Indians and also please do take some time to explain to me what Indian culture is and how that will help the PM of India to solve the countries problems.

  32. Anonymous Guy Says:

    Cheddis, your reactions to Rahul Gandhi’s words? What do your fearless leaders have to say about being Indian?

    “My father was born in Mumbai and mother in Italy. My great-grandfather was born in Allahabad, who also had origins in Jammu and Kashmir. I live in Delhi. Where should I say I belong to? I know one thing that I am an Indian and belong to India,” he said in an interaction with students without even a mention of the Sena or the protests.

    Denouncing sectarian politics, Rahul told an audience at Bhaidas College that the Congress “stands for a united India. There are two kinds of leaders in the country. One who divide and rule and others who collaborate and take everyone along with the objective of a united India and move forward. There are some people here who are trying to divide you on communal and linguistic basis and Congress is against them.”

  33. Complex Says:

    Sonia Gandhi didn’t deserve to become PM not because she was not an Indian born citizen but,

    1. She took many years to accept Indian citizenship
    2. She used the office of Prime Minister for her own benefit(She was an insurance agent)
    3. She is made Congress President for no other reason than being wife of a Gandhi
    4. She has lied in her election affidavits
    4. She doesn’t even have a degree, and no intellect. Can you imagine her sitting for a one-on-one discussion with Obama. What would she talk?

    Please see http://www.janataparty.org/sonia.html

    I have one question to people who support Rahul Gandhi,
    If he was born mentally retarded, would they still want him to become PM just because he happens to be a Gandhi(and not even a proper Gandhi).
    Maybe, they would call him innocent, child-like, etc etc.

  34. gaby Says:

    AG how did you conclude that these guys not being in power is beacuse they were rejected by young people? I would have thought this was because they were rejected by all people. You might however have stats from the EC to prove that it was the rejection by young people which proved decisive in the REJECTION!

  35. Poli Hudga Says:

    When the world ends in 2012(sooner or later), I will die as Indian and continue my Jihad against all Italians mummies, Pakistani daddies and children of some other nation I don’t like for no reason.

    Bharatadu Ammige jai!

  36. Alok Says:

    @Boochi: forgive my wrong use of words. What I meant by understanding of Indian culture system is an understanding of how decisions taken at gubernatorial level affects the daily lives of people spread across our multicultural society. For ex, taking up the burning issue of languages, assume that the central government decides to make English a first language(this is just an assumption to put forward my point, NOT my views) in schools and colleges. From the point of view of a non-Indian, or any foreigner who does not understand the significance languages have in our country, this would seem like a very valid move given the global environment developing in India. However, think from the point of view of a regional language newspaper, for him this decision means a threat to his industry in the long run. Hence, I feel that the head of the state should be able to think in such terms before reaching any major decision. This does not mean that current leaders are doing this job, they are also messing up.

    My definition of an Indian is an individual who understand the complex socio-cultural environment existing in India. For a good enough understanding to be attained, it is imperative that the individual be born and brought up in such an environment.

    @Sudhir: When I wrote Indian cultural system, I meant the economic impact cultural attributes like languages, festival, traditions etc have on livelihood of people. Because many are dependent on them for their living, which is what makes it so important.

    The language issue, I feel, is an issue of identity. The states of India are decided on the basis of languages and hence they are a means of establishing an identity for an individual. When the language of a state(like namma karnataka) feels threatened because of the declining number of speakers, it raises identity issues for the natives as they don’t want to be identified as people of a state with a non-local language. This is why I feel that it becomes a very touchy issue.

    @Anshuman Patel: You are right. Our country has been built over the numerous years of migration. I don’t have any problem at all with Mrs. Sonia Gandhi migrating to India and becoming one among us. However my concern start when she intends on being a representative of our country to the world, which is one of the tasks of PM. You ask the question that if Tatas(say Ratan Tata) were to become PM then would anyone have problem. I don’t think it would be as contentious as Mrs. Gandhi taking the PM slot. The reason being Ratan Tata was born in Mumbai and brought up in India. He is an Indian as far as India and world is concerned.

    Also, this may sound being hypercritical, but Mrs. Gandhi as a PM of a country with a population of 1.2 billion sends a message to the world about the failure of 1.2 billion people to elect one of them as a leader and require an outsider to represent them.

  37. Anonymous Guy Says:

    gaby,

    Strictly unscientific – you can do something detailed and draw your own conclusions:

    Majority of people in India are young. e.g. see:

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=4&ved=0CBAQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.census.gov%2Fipc%2Fprod%2Fib-9701.pdf&rct=j&q=number+of+young+in+india&ei=mE1uS835MMiVtgeg8pmEBg&usg=AFQjCNGA-GzD_UqT7RGCtwIHxBvc_CWN7A

    etc.
    From same figures, for voting ages, the ratio is skewed towards younger people (lets say younger than 40) than oldies. Assuming people vote across all age groups vote in an even manner (or even assuming otherwise), it is more probable that the party receiving more votes than the others and thus winning elections is supported by the majority of youngsters. i.e. whether old people voted for or against the congress, statistically it is the young people’s vote which really matters for a simple majority in India. So while old people may or may not have rejected the BJP, the young people more probably did in order to give Congress more seats in the lok sabha.

    Any scenario is possible – all old people voted for congress and young people voted equally across other parties etc. But that we can never know and I would go with the more likely scenario.

    Somewhat trivial, but no – all people did not reject the opposition – if they did, they wouldnt have won any seats and there wouldnt be an opposition, which obviously didnt happen.

    EC data wont help – they dont record who voted for whom – that is the point of anonymity in elections.

    Real point is – what do BJP/RSS/VHP have to offer to the youth against Rahul Gandhi besides hate/fear and same old leaders?

    **

    My definition of an Indian is an individual who understand the complex socio-cultural environment existing in India. For a good enough understanding to be attained, it is imperative that the individual be born and brought up in such an environment.”

    You know legally your definition wont stand right?

    An Indian citizen by birth, descent, naturalization, registration all have the same rights and duties as laid down by the Indian constitution.

    And your conclusion was more hypocritical than hyper. In what way is Sonia Gandhi a lesser Indian than you or any of us? What wrong message would her being PM send out to the world as opposed to that given out by Nehru, Shastri, Indira Gandhi, Vajpayee, Deve Gowda etc.?

    All you can do is use your vote and hope that she doesnt accept becoming PM yet another time :)

  38. Raj Says:

    Well… Sonia will not go down to cheap level of Modi. I bet she would be more polieter. She isnt uncivilized as is Killer Modi is.

  39. Doddi Buddi Says:

    Amazing Head Villager!

    Et tu Sonia Poojari !

    You should list out the qualities and not make them run into each other as in ..”To me the most important qualities a person heading the nation should have are heart in the right place, sharp/analytical mind, resonance with local/global issues, a sense of urgency towards action/implementation. Senora seems to have the first quality and the rest I am not sure and I don’t know:)..”

    You see we will never know what you mean by your ‘analysis':)

  40. Simple Says:

    Today’s paper is full of Modi singing praises for UPA .

    Sonia being the head of UPA, so clearly Modi seems to be heaping hosannas on Sonia Gandhi.

  41. Anshuman Patel Says:

    Hey DB sir!

    Haven’t seen you around on the forum for some time. So welcome back to the duels – all in good humour I hope:)

    Nope, you are wrong yet again in your prognosis, analysis and what not! I am not a Poojari of Sonia or for that matter even Janardhana Poojari of our own Nadu and I just hope I stay this way without being an unadulterated archaka of any person or ideology. May God (if he/she is around somewhere) give me that strength.

    But seriously, did you really find any such unabashed admiration and genuflection on my part for Senora? All I have said is that she seems to have her heart in the right place – this is pure speculation given whatever I have seen of her so far. To paraphrase what Arun Jaitley said, she atleast doesn’t practice the ‘politics of shrillness’. Also given the generally poor state of our politics, she comes across as a lesser evil as compared to most of the other lot.

    By all means haul her over the coals for her acts of omission and commission and evaluate her according to your own yardstick of leadership. But harping on her origins all the time doesn’t suit our innate decency as Indians is what I strongly feel. If I am wrong in that assessment and if that qualifies me to be a ‘poojari’ so be it and I wouldn’t mind such name calling!

  42. Simple Says:

    Anshuman

    I love your postings.

  43. huttadallihutta Says:

    @ Simple,

    This is the sort of cunningness & double standard we can do without!!!

    I remember in earlier occassions when you vehemently denied any wrongdoing on your Madam’s part, taking refuge under the guise that she is only the Chairperson of UPA and President of CONgress and hence is not influencing any decisions of the government.

    Now, when there is an unexpected praise from Sri Modi, you are quick to heap the praise on your madam!!!

    Wah Sirji, Wah!!!

  44. Simple Says:

    Dear Mr. Huttadallihutta,

    Rubbish. Point out specific instances where i have said what you allege i have said. No swimming in the river of generalities and abstract please!

    Like Mr. Anshuman Patel so eloquently put it, (even if he was paraphrasing Mr. Spin Doctor, Jaitley) Sonia does not practice the politics of shrillness.

    She is human, she is bound to have faults.

    Sonia never ever takes cheap jibes at opponents like the sangh parivar does. Her ‘merchant of death’ comment was in reference to the Gujarat riots, and it certainly was not a personal comment. She was attacking the politics of Modi, not Modi itself.

    But everybody in the opposition from Shri Modi to Shri Thackeray, everybody has attacked Sonia Gandhi’s as a woman, as a person.

    Attack her politics by all means, by why attack her as a person?

    This is bad strategy.

    The more you heap personal insults on a woman who has made India her home, the more votes she will get.

    Strange that the so called smart cats of BJP don’t understand this. They continue to be shrill on every TV channel. They scream and scowl, howl and growl.

    This may make their core constituency of hardcore urban voters delighted. But, it’s a big put off for most peace loving Indians.

    A classic case of penny wise, pound foolish.

    Contrast this with a smiling, charismatic, congenial Rahul Gandhi, reaching out to dalits in a remote village to an urban teenager in the city.

    And you know who will get the votes. Price rise or not.

    Price rise was a major issue 12 months back too when inflation went up to 20%, yet Congress sailed through with comfort at the hustings. Yes, their pro-poor policies was a major draw, but you cannot ignore that people like the Gandhis for their grace and dignity – By Gandhis I mean Sonia and Rahul only, not their predecessors who were quite different from these two.

    Having said that i am not absolving Cong of the price rise. They of course have to take the blame, along with the states.

  45. Doddi Buddi Says:

    Simple = Sonia Poojari, Dr. Ramesh class!

  46. Doddi Buddi Says:

    Amazing Head Villager!

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Now…But seriously, did you really find any such unabashed admiration and genuflection on my part for Senora? All I have said is that she seems to have her heart in the right place – this is pure speculation given whatever I have seen of her so far. To paraphrase what Arun Jaitley said, she atleast doesn’t practice the ‘politics of shrillness’. Also given the generally poor state of our politics, she comes across as a lesser evil as compared to most of the other lot.

If I am wrong in that assessment and if that qualifies me to be a ‘poojari’ so be it and I wouldn’t mind such name calling!..”

    I think besides Sonia we all have our hearts in the right place. To Sonia’s advantage she has other body parts in the right place as well. If you start in the chronological order, our late PM wooed her and wed her and fathered two kids. One a simple moron and the other a smart girl. Why even Dirty Devegowda has his heart in the right place but his mouth seems to travel from North to South and back.

    So far you have been seeing only good qualities about Sonia that’s OK if you are only a villager of the ‘thumb’ variety. Were you not reading the newspapers as to how she has hoisted the ventriloquist’s dummy as our president, given Quattrocchi a clean chit in Bofors, and had the imbecile Shivarajpatil as our HM for many years? Where are you with these issues? Still genuflecting and saying Ave Maria are you?

    Just because she observes ‘decorum’ in oublic debates as she lacks the acumen to connect her thoughts with words in real-time, she is no saint. Thank you.
