offcourse it is ..

the reason for the proverb i nreality as faras my knowledge says was people in love and in war do things which they would not do ordinarily .. a soldier can show immense loyalty or fierceness or even be scared .. and in love people have killed or got killed thus the proverb

putting it in context to our politicians well now thats not right.. politcians in INDIA area a QNIQUE breeed .. in there context the proverb stops at ALL IF FAIR. thats it everything is fair for them ... murders, beatings, rapes, corruption , betrayal, disloyalty is all FAIR for them, the moment they take the oath they are ALLOWED and its comes as one of the incentives of being a politician.

end of...
