    A very nice article by Rasheeda Bhagat of The Hindu on how the highest office (ceremonial thought it might be) has become a prize for different groups to clamour for.

    What value does the president add if he / she has no jurisdiction over anything?

    All the brouhaha about Presidential election is because though supposedly a rubber stamp position an independent minded person can castigate/put the govt on the mat to some extent. UPA is looking to place a favourable person like PDS Patil but with better image this time who could be useful in 2014.
