Happy 72nd birthday, Dr. Kalam!

Gosh, the opposition should really find better things to do than argue about the venue of the PM's lunch with the President. Especially given that they'd been doing the same thing.

What has the President been up to the last month?

  • Felicitating 284 teachers, Narayana Murthy, ISRO and Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma.

  • Visiting Bhopal, Pokhran and Manipur.

  • Condemning lawless violence, the Rajdhani incident, Lone's killing and the Gandhinagar attack.

  • Appointing Chief Justices his secretary.

  • Meeting the opposition, the PM, ISG students, various parties, and of course, lots of children (Bhopal, Delhi).

    These apart, he has been signing some bills, inaugurating of a polio programme, unveiling statues, and writing poetry.

    If you ask me, the only interesting thing that happened to him was someone sending him rifle cartridges. And the only thing he's done by himself is gotten a school constructed. Is this a ceremonial President as well?
