Smile that never tires

Smile that never tires
shinde’s facial explanation
Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, who took time out in between serial bomb blasts, terrorist hangings and Hindutva bashing to visit West Bengal to survey coastal security arrangements, took a boat ride to catch up with Mamta Banerjee. He also took time off to visit the Sundarbans, where he offered Rs 10,000 as a reward to any official who could enable him to sight a Royal Bengal tiger. But, neither the reward nor the chance to gain some numbers with the Home Minister worked; Shinde did not get to see the ‘lord of the Sunderbans’. While this did not erase the smile off his face, Shinde had an explanation for this. He said his expression is such that he always appears to be smiling even though he may actually be furious. Touche, Mr Shinde. That should satisfy a lot of your critics who wondered why you were looking so happy when you were describing the hanging of Ajmal Kasab!!
