About a fortnight back, Bilawal Zardari and Rahul Gandhi re-discovered each other, though not much to the world’s surprise. There are old family links, a political dynasty with a bloody past and political careers (that are not taking off) in common. The boys are also very young, spent their time studying abroad, and lost a parent to murder.
The parties they come from are also very similar. Both the PPP and the Congress are socialist, like to give popular statements about the poor (without doing much), like to sound secular and pro-minorities because they want their votes (though can’t do much for them either) and ruin everything economic.
