Cartoon from Deepika This morning's Malayalam newspaper, Deepika, delighted readers with the above cartoon on the front page. Modi is portrayed as Bhima in quest of the Sougandhika flower. He encounters Hanuman on the way and is unable to meet the challenge posed by Hanuman. Finally Bhima will understand the real power of his interceptor and seek his blessings. Fabulous cartoon, I mused. It depicts the present situation tersely. And there's a deep irony too in it. Neither Modi nor Advani is worthy of any comparison with the epic characters. Both have acted from selfish motives thus far and continue to do so. But the nature of the Kurukshetra has changed too today. Today our heroes are no better than these characters.
