Remember that when you are criticized or kicked it it is often done because it gives the kicker a feeling of importance. It often means that you are accomplishing something and are worthy of attention. Many people get a savage satisfaction out of denouncing those who are better educated than they are and are more successful. Schopenhaur had said “Vulgar people take huge delight in the faults and follies of great men”.
Same is true with recent allegations made by H.D.Devegowda regarding BIAL and NRN/Infy.Probably the sleepy giant had nothing constructive to say or do (my memory fails to recollect any), and he was looking for some new ways to steal the “media attention” after “Ahind” topic was over.
Otherwise how would “janata” remember a person who hasn’t done anything worth-while (except for himself and for his relatives).
