Your article titled ‘The Teflon Prime Minister’ in the May issue could have been a simple reflection of the much-talked about and the much admired Indian premier Dr. Manmohan Singh had he not been caught in the most bizarre situation. Things are not as easy as they sound. The UPA Government of India has slipped in a peculiarly silly manner and seems to be unable to come out of the corruption charges against it. Its fatal flaw has been a miscalculation about India's anger against corruption. And this is something that not even Singh’s friendly persona can smoothen. He might have been more comfortable in this crisis were he a complete cynic, which fortunately he is not. As a result, he is paying a heavy price. For his sincerity, thoroughly inappropriate to the politics of UPA survival, the premier is caught between his self and his lawyers. India expects Dr. Singh to act; his lawyers and ministers tell him to argue. But what he needs to realize is that though his dilemma might be explicable to a sympathizer, it will not be condoned by the people in India anymore. It is time to take charge.
