The state of Air India reveals one of the sorriest aspects of Indian public life.
The recently-ended strike by the airline's pilots - among the most pampered employees in the country, who are oblivious of the fact that their company is in acute danger of drowning in debt - is just another outrage.
Virtually every layer of governance has contributed to the mess and the pilots became brazen because they knew the airline would continue to be rescued by vested interests.
