Newly Minted Modi Coins Will Need Lots of Energy
To drive out old currency SoRa

In the absurd algorithm of politics, winning an election alone doesn’t guarantee success. Even a loser accrues more power if his followers still crave for his stewardship. Public visibility remains in its burnished state, and the leader remains as the cynosure of media vision. The Gandhis, from Indira to Sonia, have faced adverse party conditions after electoral defeats. Yet they never lost control over the Congress. Splits notwithstanding, the ‘real’ Congress has survived only under a Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi couldn’t serve victory to his 120-year-old party in the recent Assembly elections.
