I couldn’t have chosen a better time for a vacation in New York. What Arambagh is to the CPM, south Calcutta is to the Trinamul and Malda is to the Congress, NYC is to the Democrats. Even though the city’s most famous Senator’s name (Hillary Clinton) is not on the presidential ticket, the celebrations for an Obama win have already begun before Super Tuesday, November 4.The neighbourhood pubs have stocked up: beer for Barack, they say! Day after tomorrow I’ll stay up to witness history in a country where you can crack jokes about politicians and not get your window pane smashed!
