Our revered epic Ramayana has an episode where in Lord Rama tests his wife's chastitiy by making her walk through fire [even in those days there was no need to test the male's chastity]
So this was considered to be the best way to separate the noncorrupt from the corrupt. The first ones to be tested were the ruling party memebers. One by one they were made to walk through the fire pit.
The first to emerge unscathed by fire was Antony. Next to emerge was Manmohan singh holding his backside which was singed but not burnt.After anxiously waiting for a while Antony tells Manmohan,'I donot think we should wait any more, there is a lot of work that we both have to handle' Manmohan says, ' You go, I will wait, I am sure next one to emerge will be madam!
At the time of writing he is still waiting!
