New Delhi is a busy capital of late with different world leaders scheduling their visits.
Whether this speaks of India's importance on the world stage as our media would like us to believe or is it more likely, the lure of lucrative contracts to supply us "latest" and horrendously expensive stuff.
These leaders have found a way to flatter the Indian psyche, lower our guard and walk away with contracts exceeding one hundred thousands crore rupees.
Earlier, a visit to Mahatma Gandhi's samadhi at Rajghat was de riguer. Protocol has added two new items which seem mandated by the political leadership and media.
Every leader is expected to say that they strongly support India's entry to the UN Security Council as permanent member,
issue stern warning to Pakistan to punish those involved in 26/11.
Is our leadership really so gullible?
