now it's

all of them are nine-days' wonders, and generally quite meaningless too.

meanwhile the big picture:

a. how there is a scorched earth policy going on with the UPA systematically destroying institutions in anticipation of losing power
b. the changed scenario in asia with a more confident japan willing to stand up to chinese bullying
c. the impact of the iran-US rapproachment
d. how a possible modi government needs to move forward

does not get any attention at all

we have become, like america, addicted to fast food and throwaway stories.
