(Pics) Political drama: Let's be friends, shake hands and make up?

New Delhi, Feb 7: No, Congress and BJP have not yet come to an agreement (we cannot expect that in a lifetime), but there is no reason to be deceived by the headline of the story either.

In this era of Indian politics, which follows no rules, where parties that were once poles apart form alliances (P.S: LJP and RJD alliance with Congress) for the sake of elections, one still cannot expect a miracle!

But miracles do happen...with a handshake. Let us not get any ideas now but trust us when we say...handshakes speak loads and it works even in the political circuit. Let's see how:

Let's talk over handshake

German President Joachim Gauck and Arvind Kejriwal: No this has nothing to do with the political parties as such, but we brought it to the fore as the esteemed President wished to know about the AAP and Delhi politics. Interestingly, Arvind Kejriwal managed to fit in the 'Jan Lokpal Bill' in the 25 minutes meeting with him. (Psst...hope he didn't delve too much into the Indian corruption list!)

Jaganmohan Reddy and Prakash Karat: Politics shows you the world, who would have thought that YSRCP (YSR Congress Party) would shake hands with the CPI (M). And what was the point of agreement? Telangana of course. Many reports say that the 'like-minded' politicians were against the Telangana bifurcation.

Chandrababu Naidu and Narendra Modi: Another miracle, one should say. On Wednesday, Feb 5 Narendra Modi and Chandrababu Naidu were found shaking hands in the light of the fact that TDP may emerge to be NDA's leading 'sympathizer' if BJP fails to get more than 200 parliamentary seats on its own. Sources also say that the formal announcement of the alliance may be out after the Parliament session ends.

Let's go to Pakistan now. Something close to miracle has happened. Irfan Sadiqui, head of the government team of Pakistan and the Taliban may finally come to a peace treaty. In fact, arrested pro-Taliban cleric Maulana Samiul Haq was sent off after the meeting.

It was postponed, but nevertheless.....better late than never! over a handshake.
