I am amazed at the media frenzy with regards to who should be the President of India.

Why so much print is being wasted on the subject? Are the people really going to decide who becomes the President of India? Do we as people have any idea of what it takes. Agreed that it is a ceremonial position, but there are clear responsibilities that go with it. Especially at critical junctures like when President’s rule needs to be imposed. So it is a position of importance. And we cannot just recommend who we feel.

So why this whole debate with names being thrown about. Amitabh Bacchan, Narayan Murthy and what not. Please.. give me a break, will you, guys?

We are not voting on the subject. If it was only a matter of opinion, then fair enough. I would personally like Abdul Kalam to be renominated and continue.

But lets not get all speculative and wild. Next you will hear someone suggesting Sachin Tendulkar or Sunil Gavaskar’s names. Heck, we have the sheriff’s positions for those kind of acknowledgements, not the President’s please!
