RIP Atal Ji

I grew up with a brutal apathy and derision for politicians, especially for the modern ones, those whom I saw on television or read about them in newspapers and magazines. There were many reasons for that. But things changed. When Atal Ji became the Prime Minister for the first time, I came to know a politician who was different. The grace, the oratory, the charisma, the intellect captivated us.

Today, he is no more and I could not stop myself from expressing the loss I felt. A true leader is gone. I am not sure I would again feel this kind of loss and sadness on the death of a politician. Rest in peace Atal Ji.
