I continued. "When I joined politics, I was advised by my mentor to refrain from saying 'No' and that's my first lesson. When a politician says 'Yes', he means 'May be' and when he says, 'May be', he means 'No'. And if he says, 'No', he is not a politician and should quit politics."
Suddenly, I felt a soft tap on my shoulder and heard someone say: “Where are you going? What’s happened?” It was my wife's voice. I opened my eyes with a jerk, and saw her concerned look.
"A bad dream?" She asked. "Yes" I said softly.Thanks Heaven, it was only a dream - a nightmare!" What was that the dream wanted to convey? Is it indicative of the present erosion of values and finer human elements like ethics, plain-speak, honesty and integrity? Do we still consider politics as a career for honest individuals? It gave me quite some fodder to reflect.
