The Supreme Court with just a stroke of the pen has incidentally called off a supreme calamity that was staring TN in the face.
The conviction of CM wannabe and udan pirava sahodhari (UPS) of late, lamented J, along with J herself and two of the UPS clan, has saved the State, its people, the treasury, Js party and possibly, her iconic Poes Garden residence too from near doom!
Some dangerous debris is still littered on the landscape, but we hope the clean up will start soon.
Rational TN can stump lawmen and laymen alike. The happenings here have always been high on absurd theatrics and can easily carry away and confound even the sanest of minds in an emotional sweep. The current scenario is just old wine adulterated by a Midas touch, in fresh disposable plastic crush cups.
If one were to describe the few days after V K Sasikala took charge as the general secretary of the AIADMK, one would liken it to a thriller. It was almost a given a week ago that we would get the third woman Chief Minister of the State all because a man who got three chances to take a shy at the CM's seat did not seem smart enough to retain it - the third time.
