0 y bounty is as bound­less as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are in­fi­nite. So wrote Wil­liam Shake­speare, even as he delved into a cer­tain mad­ness and help­less­ness that grips lovers. This is es­pe­cially true about pow­er­ful peo­ple in love. For ex­am­ple, a prom­i­nent BJP leader from Maharashtra has fallen head­over-heels for a widow, whose late hus­band was a Mum­bai-based jour­nal­ist and friend of the new lover. Spec­u­la­tion was rife within gov­ern­ment and BJP cir­cles about this new love that had bloomed in the air, but peo­ple were re­luc­tant to name the leader or lady be­cause of the sen­si­tiv­i­ties in­volved. Alas, the flower of love was nipped in the bud. The wife of the BJP leader got a whiff of the scent, and she dis­liked it in­tensely. She was shocked and stunned, but de­cided to act de­ci­sively. She com­plained to those who man­age sen­si­tive af­fairs in the North and South Blocks. Even the wife’s brother, who has his own power base within the rul­ing regime, ex­pressed his ex­treme anger. But the smit­ten politi­cian doesn’t seem to have given up!
