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:

paapaa kahte hain
baRaa naam karegaa
achhe kaam karegaaa
achhe kaam karegaa

He was responding to how he felt after his son took over the reins of the state. And he seemed to have no trouble making up lyrics on the fly:

logoN kii mushkil hataaeygaa
is riyaasat ko aage le jaayega
kaam mushkil hai zaruur
iraadaa nek ho to
ho jaayegaa sab kuchh thiik

Sang pretty tuneful too, actually, come to think of it. Inshallah, and all that. But how about some other songs that we could sing to some other politicians? What? If young Omar were a Madonna fan, he might well have burst into a fulsome rendition of "Papa Don't Preach", you think?
