ROYAL SA­FARI

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Af­ter suc­ces­sive set­backs at the hus­tings, Pun­jab’s for­mer chief min­is­ter and state Congress Pres­i­dent Amarinder Singh has been anx­ious to score a ‘ kill’. So the Pa­tiala royal did the next best thing— head­ing off for the South African game re­serves where the pro­fu­sion of wildlife prom­ises far bet­ter prospects than in Pun­jab’s un­pre­dictable con­stituen­cies. The re­gal en­tourage— Singh and a se­lect group of his clos­est friends— flew out to Johannesburg on July 29 for 10 days of se­ri­ous shikaar: Guinea fowls, fran­colin and, if their luck holds, maybe even a warthog or two.
