Gosh, I am so relieved about that nice Mr. Kalmadi

So it seems, prima facie, that Mr.Kalmadi may not have dementia after all.

I am genuinely happy for him (see my earlier blog post this morning, if you think I am being ironic).  I know too much about dementia to wish it even on anyone.  Really.

So now I await his trial for corruption with unabashed excitement.

  • It was too pat: one day he was being charged, the next, hey presto – look – dementia. I have a very strong feeling that his lawyer has cooked up this charge as a way of getting him out of his sentence. I genuinely believe that and I am not trying to be corny about someone’s illness. A few people actually do allow themselves to be detected with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder in order to commute a prison sentence. And Kalmadi’s was too precipitate to be believable.

    Err not to give the impression that whoever is investigating this is clueless, but while there are many tests, you can’t definitively make a diagnosis of dementia without a biopsy.. MRI scans are always far from conclusive, so the headline is hardly surprising.
