Friday the 13th

Nah, I don’t mean this:

I meant this:

Following the highest ever polling rates, West Bengal is poised on the brink of a political equivalent of a knock out game. This time around, the opposition coalition, led by Mamata Banerjee of Trinamool Congress, is expecting to topple the ruling leftist coalition, led by Buddhadeb Bhattacharya of CPM. Keeping in mind the fact that this coalition has been at the helm of the state for nearly three and a half decades, this is indeed a huge thing. And the results are due to come out tomorrow.

So, while the leaders of the state are heading into one night of sleeplessness, we, the aam admi, shall also look forward to another day when the news media has a field day, first speculating (heck, they have started doing that since yesterday), then debating the results.

Now the real question is, for which of these two will Friday the 13th turn out to be one hell of a lucky day?
