Out of The Lair, To Gawk At Him

Who da man in the cowboy's Stetson, looking on from the back of the open jeep?

For celebrities of different stripes, polltime is strolltime—through busy thoroughfares, bazaars, on people's doorsteps, asking for a punch on the EVM. In Bar­a­sat, near Calcutta, mag­ician P.C. Sorcar is the BJP's man, seen here wit­h­out a wand, but with daughter Mumtaz.
