Results of parliamentary elections are pleasantly intriguing. They are a tribute to maturity of Indian voters. There is certainly a 'goldilocks' attribute to the final tally. UPA is tantalisingly close to a simple majority. Voters have been decisive enough to keep the UPA in power, but also sceptical enough not to make the alliance unbridled. Prakash Karat has paid for his intellectual hubris and BJP for its flop-flop fundamentalism. Congress should be sane enough to ensure good governance so that it can face the next elections confidently.
