Pol­i­tick­ing with Dis­as­ter

India Today - - INSIDE -

“Th­ese po­lit­i­cal chaps just talk,” said Sharda Mukher­jee, the el­e­gant, sil­ver-haired Gov­er­nor of Andhra Pradesh. She sat on a chintz-cov­ered sofa on the wide ter­race of Hy­der­abad’s Raj Bha­van, over­look­ing a well­tendered lawn. Foun­tains played softly in the dis­tance, gaze­bos gleamed in the dusk. From the hall came the sound of pad­ding foot­steps of liv­er­ied bear­ers on Per­sian car­pets. In her ex­pres­sive man­ner, the Gov­er­nor talked of cy­clone vic­tims, dev­as­tated vil­lages, feed­ing camps, med­i­cal aid and the relief and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion com­mit­tee she has ini­ti­ated.
