Films and footnotes

When Somnath Chatterjee was elected as the Lok Sabha Speaker, one had a lot of expectations from him. An astute parliamentarian displaying ascetic authenticity, he could have been instrumental in ushering in wide ranging electoral and constitutional reforms. But so far his record in these areas is zilch and his tenure is likely to be forgotten as insignificant. That one can watch fine NFDC films without any interruption over the Lok Sabha Channel on weekends, is perhaps the only consolation. [TNM]
