Link du Jour: Lalu Yadav in the American 

Graeme Wood writes an interesting profile on India's railway king in the American. Besides obviously talking about the turnaround Lalu has wrought at the Indian Railways, Wood also talks about Sudhir Kumar, the civil servant who is probably as responsible for the turnaround as Lalu himself. It's long, but worth it. I just wish he had spent some more time talking about all the innovations Lalu brought in to increase revenues, or milk the cow to the fullest in Laluspeak.
