Bumbling village idiot or secular lodestar? Fodder-chomping cowherd or an enduring symbol of political empowerment? Love him or hate him, Laloo Prasad Yadav is determined to leave his imprint on politics at the national level.

Delighted with the all-round praise he has got for his journey to Pakistan and his subsequent handling of VHP leaders (who were denied entry into Bihar), Laloo now believes the nation is ready to receive him with open arms. "I am not going to keep sitting in the state. I have to make a government in Delhi. I have to contribute to national politics," he says.
