A stunning debut in the recent elections, the formation of a government in the country’s capital, a swearing-in ceremony amid scores of ardent supporters … things could not have got any better for Team Kejriwal. Delhi-ites must be complimented for encouraging the arrival of fresh blood in politics. Though it did get a decisive mandate in its favour, the AAP’s victory shows there is a chance for young leaders.
The jet-speed decisions taken hours after coming to power — the reshuffling of Delhi’s top bureaucracy, restricting the use of red beacon lights, need-based provision of security and the shunning of stately bungalows — all remind me of the plot of Shankar’s Tamil film, Mudhalvan.
