In India politics is not a vocation, but a family business. If daddy is an MP, then his darling son or daughter regard the constituency as their heirloom. When the time for choosing a candidate for the general election comes round - as it has now with the impending general election in May - parties hand out tickets to the relatives of MPs as though they are a family inheritance.
