India's President

I read recent address of president Pratibha Patil to parliament. I drew some wrong conclusions that president is being sycophant. On more inspection I found out, it is actually a formal speech outlining intentions of government, which is identical in nature to a Speech from the Throne.

Though I still wonder why president (the commander of armed forces, above all a neutral body) has to read sycophantic rants of government.

On a more significant note came across this link about history of Pratibha Patil's history(alleged).

Well, it not her fault. Its the person who wrote that speech for her should be blamed .. :D

The irony -

@ @nks
yep, we should not blame her. She is just a rubber-stamp. I have nagging feeling if her speech-writer is Sonia Gandhi... :D

Sukesh, I think we are getting it wrong. The President only speaks. The real voice is of the government, always. She has to speak that only. If NDA come to power after the elections, she will speak the draft approved by that govt.
