Here's the shadow, but where's the light?

Rediff reports that the first shadow cabinet in India is just being created. The opposition in the state of Maharashtra has decided to form one to "keep the Vilasrao Deshmukh government on its toes".

So if you want to get something done, will you have bribe not just the minister concerned to do your work, but also the shadow minister to keep quiet about it? Now, that's what they call a win-win situation.
