The devil and the deep blue sea

Narendra Modi and the Sangh Parivar are drifting apart, we are informed.

I'm opposed to both, of course, and wonder if this is a good thing (the monster weakens) or a bad thing (there are two monsters where there were one). Next they'll say Prakash Karat is parting ways from the Left Front, and then we'll really have monsters all around us. As Kalidasa once wrote:
Monsters on the Right of me
And monsters on the Left
My nightmares get the fright of me
Oh, I'm so bereft!
Ok, so maybe Kalidasa didn't write that. But he could have, and that's what matters.
