First it was Varun Gandhi and now Sashi Tharoor who have been criticized for giving credit where it is due. I feel our politicians need to have an open mind and learn to praise or criticize when the situation or action warrants, irrespective of whether they are friends or foes. It is sad to see former high profile ministers not able to accept defeat gracefully and acting childishly exhibiting their peevish side of nature. It is obvious that they refuse to learn from their mistakes and evolve themselves politically for their own political future.
The general human tendency is to expect victory all the time and gloat in its success which goes to one’s head in no time. The recent example of the leader of AAP and his downfall ( because he did not know how to handle the situation post his victory ) should serve as a learning lesson not only to young aspirants but also to so called veterans in the field who seem to live in a fools paradise thinking voters who defeated them are all fools!
