It isn't everyday that you leave a plush job with an MNC to enter the dust and grime of the political field. But Sachin Pilot has done just that. Reason: he inherits a splendid legacy and a certain career in the "dirty" profession.

Father Rajesh Pilot died as a sitting five-time MP from Rajasthan and, more importantly, as one the most high-profile leaders of India's Grand Old Party.

Mother Rama kept the Dausa seat secure for the family the last time round, but the son seems to have decided that it was high time to jump on to the bandwagon.
