Vantage point

Gandhi camp loyalist Pratibha Patil, who is set to take over as President of India from Abdul Kalam, has already become a source of great mirth. She says, "I will not be a rubber stamp President".

Your Excellency, please get hold of a copy of the job description of India's President. You don't even need to read between the lines.

And here's another newsflash. India's current Prime Minister is a rubber stamp. What chance do you have?

By the way, this means all three arms of the Indian government will be run by a woman. The same woman. Sonia Gandhi.
