Rajdeep's Amar Chitra Katha

Man, this is one rocking blog
Amar Chitra Katha paints the pain of Amar Singh.

"In the isolation of Amar Singh though there is a bigger lesson for new age politicians. In many ways, Amar Singh typifies the "corporatisation" of the contemporary politician: netas who climb up the political ladder more by networking and monetary clout and less through mass appeal and charisma."

"Amar Singh has been a master of the game, bringing politics (Mulayam), big business (Subroto Roy Sahara and Anil Ambani) and glamour (Amitabh, Aishwarya and god knows who else) on one platform. You almost have a sneaking admiration for someone who can be having a power breakfast with Anil Ambani in the morning, will be out in the midday sun in Sonbhadra addressing a Thakur samaj rally, and then have a night out with Bollywood stars."

Read the full blog guys..I'm tempted to quote the full context.
