son stroke
 n.— «One fallout of all this is that Deve Gowda, like his predecessors, is now suffering from what is known as “son stroke.” If Narasimha Rao’s sons were dubbed brokers, Indira Gandhi was criticised for Sanjay Gandhi’s brusque and dictatorial style, Morarji Desai’s son Kanti Desai slammed for his wheeling-dealing and V.P. Singh’s son Ajeya framed in the St Kitts affair, Deve Gowda is running the risk of losing his carefully crafted “humble farmer” image.» —“The Gowdas: The Taste Of Power” by Harinder Baweja in Bangalore India Today Jan. 31, 1997.
