The torn garments of India

August 3, 2010

India, my dear country. Is like an old woman now. Trying to cover her shame. With garments all torn and she is almost in rags. Yet she tries to cover her grace. By a few sleights of hand. Yet, she is about to be robbed of her only rags too. Alas.

India, was supposedly the golden bird once. If you go by me, it still is.

The monies flowing in and around are tremendous. This is one country where if you have the money, which will mean, you will have the clout, you can get away with ANYTHING. Just about anything. Including murders. Yeah, if you murder a high profile person, you are bound to get some media attention and the judge judging your case, will be very sad on not being able to take some money from you and let you go.
God alone knows what has happened to the taking over of the swiss accounts held by Indian politicians and to get the money back.
The recent mining scams were all silenced. That is a 70,000 Crore rupee racket, only from one state.Damn, I can’t even count the fishing zeroes ! Yes, China is buying all that we can dig up.
4k Cr. of a scam for allotting 3g spectrum to private operators. I mean, when are we going to wake up. The world has moved on to 4g and we are still dreaming of 3g !
7k Cr. of a natural reserves scam in a state which is known to be the most left behind in terms of development, Jharkhand. None is bothered about Mr.Koda.
Jagjivan Ram further raped the country, decades ago, (what a fishing libido!!) by including the caste system and reservations. Nothing, almost nothing happens by merit. Now, that led to a lot of other sub scams too. Well, we have had quite a few national rapers. One of them we even regarded, the father of our nation !!

Most recently were a few Members of Parliament caught on tape trying to quote their prices to vote for anybody to represent the house.
This, in my opinion, is the saddest part to live in a democracy. How can you expect the people representing you to pass tougher laws to check for corruption and account for black money (money earned illegally), when they themselves are the biggest of culprits. Why will they make a law of something that will get their own ass in trouble. This situation is like one of those prodigal curses on India. I am sure one of those big saints in the yore got pissed and said, to hell with you, India !! There were a few men who thought theyd bring about a change but the people of this once great country are so lost on values, that they will only vote for the candidate who can get em a bottle of whiskey and provide a few Rupees !

We are all but marching towards our own celebrated doom. It is bound to happen. I wonder what the future generations will be left with. Sorry kids.
