Scandals such as the 2G scam reinforce the strong anti-capitalist streak in Indian political culture

It’s easier to fulfil grand ambitions if your conscience is a little (or a lot) elastic. Bunty and Babli certainly prove that in the eponymous 2005 superhit movie. Bunty aur Babli is a Bollywood production, so naturally there’s a happy ending. A Raja and Kanimozhi haven’t been quite as lucky. While Kani’s finally out on bail, Raja is still behind bars at Tihar as a key accused in the 2G spectrum scam, which has been listed by Time magazine as the second-worst abuse of power, right behind the Watergate scandal. Bunty and Babli found a sympathetic cop who decided to set two thieves to catch more thieves. Will Kani and Raja find a similar out?

In Tihar jail since February 2011, the courts have shown him little mercy even as many of his co-accused got bail. And now we hear the CBI has dug up more damning evidence against the ex-telecom minister.
