Not counted among the better off states of India, the mineral rich state of Jharkhand, once part of ‘Bimaru’ Bihar, has unexpectedly beaconed journalists with humble means. They can become richer by at least Rs 15,000 each by simply using their writing abilities to eulogize ‘development’ in the state. If their treatise is considered worth inclusion in a book to be brought out by the BJP-run state government that is going to the polls in a few weeks then they can expect an additional remuneration of Rs 5000.

The Tamil National Alliance on the other hand is fighting to stay relevant. They had presented the presidential candidates with 13 points if the candidate is to expect their support. It is obvious to anyone with even a marginal political sense that these demands are just words of bravado. Despite the many candidates in the arena, not a single one can even afford to be seen giving a hearing to these extremely absurd demands.
