Flight delays, and raisins for a paunch

Coomi Kapoor writes in her column, Inside Track, in the Indian Express, of how an Indian airlines flight in Patna was delayed because the pilot "had just received instructions from the Chief Minister’s house that the aircraft was not to leave until the arrival of a certain passenger." There was a journalist on board that plane, and Kapoor tells us about the confrontation between the journo and the VIP, when he did eventually turn up.

She also tells us about Lalu Prasad Yadav's eating habits. The main component of his diet is raisins, and despite that, he "still sports a noticeable paunch."
