    One must not tell what he is going to do until he is there. The proverbial horse shoe nail comes to mind. It seems the first PM, DS did not tell anybody what he is going to do next. But he lost his life because of a nail between him and the horse. He trusted his horse keeper, one Velu it seems. Prez RP trusted his house keeper and lost his life,although he cleverly got LTTE to get rid of Indian made IPKF.
