this was what made Jayanti Nadarajan see RED ,
GREAT AUSTERITY DRIVE none dare ridicule it
someone who is not a home bred Keralite
and that too someone who thinks in engleeesh
"never allow mediocrisy to rise above hypocrisy " the motto of the oldest party in India cannot be reversed
sorry but what a bunch of hypocrites and fools we indians are ?
we have our own state bred politicians who have dipped thier hands into Canadian business houses and continue to sermonise ,
we have politicians with itchy hands in planes out to grab the nearest good looking female who get aquited to reign as ministers again
we have corrupt politicians ruling us left and right with a rare sprinkling of good ones ,
just because they use the right words and give great speeches to hoodwink us we fall for them
havent you seen movies where the politiican after hugging a slum dweller for a photo crinkle his nose later ?
we believe in them
let us calculate how much these ministers have been spending for thier office remakes ,
how much have they been spending for thier foriegn trips ,
thier iftar parties
thier phone calls
thier black cat commandos
thier wasted debates inside assemblies and parliaments when they either slouch or walk out or just disappear
the late VP Singh former prime minister used to travel to UK for getting a treatment available in India with his whole family and stay in the most expensive hotel in london for months incurring huge bills paid by the state and he was supposed to be a politiican who fought for the downtrodden the backward class !
we have so many paswans ,lallus ,and karunakarans
why are we cheating ourselves like this ?
no wonder we never progress because we deserve only such nincompoops to rule us
our country needs educated intelligent people who call a spade by its name and not as something else
I would advise Sasi tharoor to go back and continue being a writer
thier needs are fulfilled by the present bunch and they will always be in the same sorry state
sad but true
