Well done, Governments

There is at last some good news about governance. The much-feared cyclone, Phailin did not do much damage in terms of human casualty. This was largely because of preventive steps taken by the Orissa government. The central government also contributed its might.

In addition, Indian meteorologists predicted with greater accuracy than their American counterparts.

This shows that Indian governments can deliver if they are focused and if much time is not made available for scheming and scams.

Around the same time, a wholly avoidable tragedy costing hundreds of human lives took place in Madhya Pradesh. Reports blame police corruption for the disaster. It is a blot on the government.
