Nobody else throws his or her weight around in that countryand the common person doesnt give a damn about VIPs Hereof coursethe situation is hugely different The VIP status is flaunted in the face of countless millions every dayround the clock and round the calendar You dont have to spell out the word; everyone knows what it means In sharp contrast to what prevails in the USthe super-wealthy in India dont need to proclaim themselves VIPs They get whatever they want without saying a word The whole system seems geared to their needs and wishes The odd tycoon who gets caught on the wrong side of the law lives in jail in greater luxury than five-star hotels can provide It is the political classthe army of bureaucrats and those who can muscle into the establishment (a great many doincluding some whose only qualification is that they are related to some high up in power) that form the bedrock of the VIP cult and the perks and privileges that go with it Like much elsethe VIP is a legacy of the British Raj Independent India has not only embraced it with gusto but also expanded it vastly For instanceall through the British ruleonly the viceroy and the governors of 11 British Indian

to produce the wonder that is the Indian VIP From the morrow of Independenceall ministers were entitled to fly the national flag on their cars and in their homes Cabinet ministers had the additional right to display on their vehicles the Ashoka emblem When Nehru went to his first Commonwealth prime ministers conference in Londonhe found that no British ministerincluding the prime ministerflew the flag on their limousinea practice that continues even today On returning homehe discarded the flag on his own Ambassador and told his colleagues to do the same The scramble for the VIP status then took other manifestations For exampleMohanlal Saxena wrote to Nehru that though he was a minister of statehe held full charge of the ministry of rehabilitation He saw no reasonthereforewhy the gates to his bungalow should be without the globes of light that adorned the entrances to cabinet ministers homes Flags on the VIPs cars reappeared soonthough usually sheathed rather than fluttering Meanwhilethe events of the 1980s in Punjab and Kashmirand the appearance of cross-border terrorism on the Indian scene had added to the woes of the helpless non-VIPs in direct proportion to the burgeoning privileges and pampering of those more equal than the rest Howeverthere is nothing so grim as not to have a comic side to it Nothing causes so much resentment and bad blood among VIPs as a higher category of security assigned to someone else They get angrier when told that security classification depends not on the status or seniority of the individual to be protected but on the threat perception by intelligence agencies What has taken over in a big way is the crazeand competitionfor the red beacon or lal batti atop the cars At first the privilege was restricted to a few at the very top but then it spread like an epidemic Mercifullythe move to extend the right to lal batti to all the 800 MPs has been stalled for the presentat least But imagine the havoc it would cause for the

minister of India along with his council of ministers the impressive ceremony in the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan was attended by thousands including a phalanx of SAARC heads of government The event was perfectly choreographed with the PMO website going live seconds after Prime Minister Modi took the oath of office The council of ministers is a calibrated mix of those who have featured in older NDA governments and new faces showcasing a heartening representation to women It frames also the new prime minister’s attempt to reach out to his own party after a campaign that focused on his persona and seemed to dwarf other leaders There will soon be greater clarity on the way ministries have been restructured for maximum cohesion At least half a dozen ministries have reportedly had their functions reassessed and allied departments have been grouped together to avoid delay duplication and working at cross-purposes The new council of ministers is an unusually small entity at a

change that has coursed through the NDA The cabinet committee on security for instance which includes the ministers of defence finance home and external affairs and makes the most critical decisions for the government is composed entirely of first-timers including Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley This lack of experience is also an opportunity The absence of jadedness could potentially infuse a new
