It looks natural that in the Indian state in which Politics and Cinema have been the most inseparable fields for decades, the political events are unraveling as a comedy thriller.
The updates from Tamil Nadu show the rotten and pathetic state to which Indian Politics has fallen. The level of sycophancy, corruption and hypocrisy have come out all in open without any camouflage.
Jayalalithaa "ruled" the state for years, theoretically standing within the framework of constitution and democratic processes, but at the same time having all the "look and feel" of an empress from 19th century. The moment she dies, the same people who used to prostrate in front of her whenever they got a chance and were ready to openly state that they are her "slaves", jump in to grab her seat and properties, and define newer and newer levels of depths.
