Back in the day, when a kingdom didn’t have a natural heir, they apparently sent an elephant to wander the streets, with a garland in its trunk — and whichever neck the noose garland went around, would be installed as the next king.
In keeping with its deep grounding in classical Hindu tradition, the BJP is sending out LK Advani [or he is setting out on his own] on a pan-India trek, complete with garland, to find talent for the party and who knows, maybe a successor to Rajnath Singh. Seriously — there’s grandstanding, and then there’s this.
To add to the mirth quotient, the RSS has asked Advani to take Rajnath Singh along!
Stop, already — my stomach hurts from laughing so much.
