It is a cliche that honest politicians in India tend to have dishonest sons, who collect money from people seeking an audience with Dad.

I have a suspicion that a lot of artists are trying to get a laugh but, unlike stand-ups, they don't get an immediate response from their audience; a laugh is a rare thing in a gallery.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
