The portrait is being shiftedYesterday was his last day in office. Today he has relinquished the charge. A new leader has assumed office. The oath-taking ceremony is not yet complete. But in the offices, the work has started. The portrait/photo is being shifted. All his portraits/photos of are being shifted from the chambers of the Ministers/senior officers. Arrangement is being made for procuring new portraits/photos of the new President.
All of us know the rule: The old gives way to the new. When one leaves the chair, no one or very few remembers/remember him/her. Even then we forget the general rule that the chair is more important than the person. The exceptions are very few and far between. Even then, we give so much importance on ourselves. We think we are synonymous with the chair.
It is not. The chair is more important than the person.
