  Sycophant du jour
Via an unsigned Times of India article titled "Sonia: A bit of a Mahatma":
Two years after she declined to be the prime minister, Sonia Gandhi remains an enigma: a successful politician no doubt but one clearly different from the rest of the tribe in India. For the second time in less than two years, Gandhi, 59, caught everyone off guard as she resigned her Lok Sabha post after coming under political cloud and tried to recapture the moral high ground in an arena where power is seen as the only driving force. In that dramatic announcement she made at her 10 Janpath residence, the mother of two, born in Italy but now completely Indian at heart, proved once again that she is not and will never be another run of the mill politician. many now compare her with Indira Gandhi, her own slain mother-in-law-cum-prime-minister who was often known as one of the shrewdest beings Indian politics has ever produced. But far from leading a Congress-led coalition government, which she was widely expected to do, she renounced the job, saying she was listening to the voice of her conscience, and thereby gained a saintly halo round her that made many compare her to the greatest renunciate, Mahatma Gandhi, whom Indians revere as the Father of the Nation.
TOI has already hit rock bottom several times and yet digs further. While we don't bother much about party politics, TOI is parotting the same words as some of the sycophantic Congress party workers. Hey, whatever happened to freedom and independece of press? Guess, it is applied selectively.
 
Comments:
Yeah, that the ToI is, the surprise for me, was it titling Sonia quitting as

"Sonia quits Office To Profit".

That was so uncharacteristic of them
