MUMMY RE­TURNS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE - by KAVEREE BAMZAI

Maa kab aayi thi? ( When did my mother come?)” This was Rahul Gandhi’s first ques­tion to the vil­lagers of Man in Satara dis­trict of Ma­ha­rash­tra when he vis­ited the drought- af­fected area on April 28. They knew the an­swer, even if he didn’t. Rahul’s fa­ther Ra­jiv and mother So­nia had toured the area in 1987 and 2003 re­spec­tively. It hasn’t helped that the vil­lagers are yet to ben­e­fit from Cen­tral schemes, un­der which funds are pro­vided to dig borewells and erad­i­cate water scarcity.
