A- Political India

Money, old friend, what are we doing about that 2 G – or was it 3G?- the media has made a lot out of it! 

Oye Soniye, lots of people made lots on it. And that it is not 2 or 3 G is just what the problem is- that boy Raja overdid it and went beyond the acceptable limits! Otherwise, with Obama coming in, the Asiad and all that hype about some Gold, all the cricket and all the other stuff, the matter would be long blown over by now.

We can’t be sitting ducks, Man, something’s got to be done. Why do these people get their necks in where they can’t get out! Look at Sassy, he’s learnt-  talkin about Arundhati Roy now instead of Bapu and Nehruji, and Doing only what he can marry in a hurry if things seem to be getting out of hand.

Oh yes, Sonja, Sassy’s got smarter, seems like he can’t help doin it all the time, but he, too, will have to draw a line somewhere, thrice is a bit too much don’t you think ? The thousands of Gs is another thing altogether, on the positive side the slumdogs don’t really understand what all those figures mean, they have graduated to thinking upto a Crore with our Big Bee flashing the figure on TV all the time and smaller figures could therefore stir up a public upheaval but amounts beyond that aren’t really understood by the poor mutts. Even Hairy Thakre’s men haven’t made much noise about it. In fact, just the mention of money shuts them up just a bit. All the noise against that poor little rich boy Shark Khan and even our very own puttar Tondulkar, and talk about culture and national sentiment being hurt, about censoring things and objectionable stuff, breaking down property and bashing up anyone in the way! BUT they didn’t mind being labelled slumdogs internationally that time with that slumdog movie. And I know it was to do with the million mentioned there. So too much of noise about Raja and the too many Gs is unlikely. In fact the other day when all had sort of quietened down, I passed by Raja and patted him on the shoulder and of course the media picked up that scrap but as usual the poor illiterate blokes got it wrong saying I was showing support for the man. To think the premier could be so naive! 

So you got things under control Bunny! Good. Mama Mia, I was beginning to worry just a bit! Keep me posted Buns, what would I do without you?

where Fairplay?

Why all the hue and cry and sudden ‘concern’ over Chinese trade policies?  We cried foul against the communists and their protectionist market policies. We bashed them across their heads all these years for their dark, cold, demonic ways and had the Church and Media and the world condemn them to eternal hell, poor folk! (Let’s skip the errant Russian souls running around with their version of the free market for now.) The Chinese decided to play our game and now that it seems they have the free market by the scruff of the neck and are dragging it happily around, trying to play our game the best they can and actually doing pretty well! It appears rather unsporting that we want to come up with new laws and checks on the game that never seemed to exist before. Are some people looking like crybabies here, and the respected USA behaving like the typical hurt bully?

No, I’m no communist, and not that it would matter today. This is for those that shout about the need for parents and home being/providing the core of a child’s education. For those that shout foul at the idea of shifting the blame for the inability of the system to reach {for the higher ideals of education with respect to morals and ethics (whassat?)} standards hoped for, with respect to the capabilities of the students in the west- meaning of course those in the USA and the UK-  as compared with and substandard to those of Asian students, upon the state.

 There are those of the view that the parents need to spend more time with children under fourteen if they are to develop behaviour that is more socially correct, morally acceptable, and as for simple curriculum, at least in competition with the Asian counterparts. The two main objects being propagated and sought, more parental involvement with their children- spending more time at home, and not blaming the state. Intelligent idea. But alas, you forget that your State is You. Or have we forgotten with time that the System is of our making? Woe be upon us! The system we chose, does not allow place for nor time to waste on family. We have chosen a capitalist, materialistic way of life where the free market must hold sway. The system is about going and getting- all that we would want for the betterment and fulfilment of our lives . Unfortunately ( ha ha, maybe you didn’t know) the demand and supply in a so called free market (as being pushed by the capitlist idealists so far) is about neverending demand fuelled by the creation of more wants and needs and voila neverending supply. The family system under the circumstances has broken down from large joint families, to smaller units, to nuclear, and now singular ! So you stop wasting your time talking parenthood and children in a time when  liberty is about  freedom to do as we want, go where we want, to live all those dreams that we learn in our system to dream. In a time when marriages are looked down upon as outre and impossible to sustain amongst males and mainly the poor long enslaved fairer sex who are finally equal enough and strong enough  to want and get part of  all that liberty and all those more acceptable, more cherished dreams the world has to offer. There is no place for family in the system, as has been proved ( we couldn’t be blind). And children !!! That is just unnecessary baggage, and a thing some of those lesser men and women errantly do. So stop talking nonsense and concentrate on the better things to do. And if you EVER want to think or talk such subject, think afresh and anew. Waste not your time; Flounder not like lost sheep.
