Things that matter!

POLITICAL PUNDITS in the media have filled hundreds of column centimetres explaining why the Chief Minister, S.M.Krishna, continues to occupy the throne in Vidhana Soudha while the party dispensation in New Delhi thought it fit to effect a change of guard in Maharashtra.

We, who write this column, are political novices and can't venture into that territory.

We can only repeat what we hear from the pavements on Mahatma Gandhi Road to the pubs on Residency Road. What we heard was that excepting a few of his junior colleagues, no one among those in the Congress in our State can match Mr. Krishna's suave manners and impeccable dress sense.

Neither can any of them carry on a civilised conversation with the likes of Tony Blair and Bill Gates.

With VVIPs from overseas making Namma Bengalooru a must item on their Indian itinerary, such things do matter here.
