When the President of India, Giani Zail Singh, went to the U.S.A. for an eye operation, he was admitted to the same Texas hospital where his predecessor, Neelam Sanjivva Reddy, had been previously treated. In Delhi, rumour had it that when Mr. Zail Singh was due to be taken to the operation theatre, the Chief Surgeon came to him and asked, “Are you ready?” Promptly came Giani Zail Singh’s reply, “No, I am not Reddy, I am Zail Singh?” (Hindustan Times, 4 December 1982).
