When a reasonably good review of a biography that details Mayawati’s ascent is written, one is reasonably impressed. Then, one also finds that the person who reviewed the book is Sagarika Ghose! One realized, just like people who can’t write well aren’t stupid, people who don’t present themselves well aren’t either.
Later, one googled for more reviews of Behenji and landed here. Thus, one decided to buy the book.
 — They could be. But since they are and have proved the possibility of being otherwise, they have been declared not. Which may be wrong. But since it need not be, it isn’t. Thus, they aren’t.
