Farooq Abdullah had done his usual flip-flop and blown hot and cold before he finally got down to nominating son Omar Abdullah for the chief ministership of Jammu & Kashmir. But come the swearing-in day of the youngest chief minister ever of any state in the country, and Abdullah Senior was in his characteristic good spirits, bursting into song:
