Now that almost everything to do with Salman Khurshid’s open defiance to EC’s diktat has been discussed and debated. Now that EC has closed the chapter on Salman’s transgression following his apology. And now that yet another minister has defied EC’s diktat, the venerable Election Commission, must be at its wits' end. We urge it not to lose heart and offer the following suggestions:

1. Since its letter to the President that was forwarded to the Prime Minister did not elicit a response, this time he could send a letter to Obama.

2. Write to the PM: I am in your league, sir. No one listens to me either.

3. Write to Anna Hazare to take up his case.
4. Seek Delhi Police’s permission to fast at Jantar Mantar.

5. Watch ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’.

6. Watch ‘saas-bahu’ serials. They often have solutions for hapless/helpless characters.

7. Watch TV debates for ideas. I could recommend some if approached.
