Ms. President?

It is unclear if US will have its first woman president in 2009, But India is all set to have the first woman president in a couple of months. I haven't it heard of Ms. Prathiba Patil until today, nevertheless I welcome her nomination.

I would have preferred to see Dr. Abdul Kalam renominated for one more term but with that not happening, Ms. Patil seems to be a better choice over few others like Shivraj Patil, Pranab Mukherjee, Sushilkumar Shinde or Karan Singh who were in the fray.


  1. Prathiba Patil has a good credential academically, politically and administratively. She is well rounded.

    Maharashtra should be proud of this great personality.


  2. When i heard Prathibha Patil, for a moment i thought they got Shivraj Patil's wife as a compromise candidate..following Laloos example.

    What relief !

  3. Why do Indians need a President ?
    They should abolish the office and
    instead create a new office for
    'Chief Political Haggler' to deal
    with various looser, cheats and criminals in the political spectrum.
    Currently, Ms. Sonia Gandhi fits the

  4. her only qualification is that she is a Shekawat too....
