That India has a VIP culture is well known, but that the definition of a VIP has become so democratised, is significant. Today, effective power is wielded by those who are at best, very minor VIPs. There is an entire section of society, hidden from the view of media for most, that is at the forefront of the power-as-immunity culture. Rich builders, contractors, magistrates, corporators, councillors, lawyers- and their relatives, friends and well-wishers are part of this group that can be loosely classified as the muscle economy. It is exceedingly difficult for any mainstream party to take up this cause as it would attack what is the primary perk of being politician- the ability to get things done without fear of consequences, at least from the law.
