India Doesn’t Need These Indians!
If wishes were horses, this country of 1.27 billion would select five worthy Indians and pack them off to a land far, far, far way… Timbuktu, you think – too close, something further, please!
Let’s be honest, if we were to delve in the rot we know as politicians, five is too low a number, laughable almost. But space constraints limit my fingers here. However, considering that these five make it to the list among all the others we know as leaders (?!!!), there just has to something special here.
This “young” Gandhi is quite a joke… literally. There are a plethora of websites dedicated purely to Rahul Gandhi jokes. But jokes apart (pun totally intended), is this Gandhi poised to lead this country one day? Is this Gandhi poised to lead the Congress party one day? Rhetorical questions with glaring answers that are more than evident. Rahul Gandhi has always gone overboard to prove that he is one with the common man – politician or not. He often claims he understands what they go through. Why, this Gandhi even took a Mumbai local train and interacted with commuters! But, for all his PR stunts, this is one disconnected man. This is a man who publicly stated, “Poverty is just a state of mind. It does not mean the scarcity of food, money or material things. If one possesses self-confidence, then one can overcome poverty.” We wonder which world Rahul Gandhi is living in. We know one thing for certain, though, it’s definitely NOT the real one. It’s time to find him a land where he can actually practice what he preaches!
Mayawati’s rise has been termed as the “miracle of democracy” by India’s former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao! The term “miracle of democracy” is highly ironic here. The head of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), a party that’s supposed to be a platform for social change, improving the welfare of the weakest strata of Indian society, is known for its blatant display of wealth. Forget helping the poorest of the poor, Mayawati is known to have public birthday celebrations, ensuring she’s bedecked in diamonds. Of course, her affinity for statues is well-known – the woman is known to have spent crores and crores of rupees on statues of Dalit leaders. Her worship of these leaders clearly blinded her to the millions of starving people in her own state. Starvation be damned, the statues just had to be put up! But, what really takes the cake here is the woman putting up statues of herself as well! Of course, add the corruption, highhandedness, etc., and this woman is gold… oops, statue! We need to find her a little planet that’ll spin her and her precious statues into a galaxy that’s light years away.
Suresh Kalmadi is best known for being a lottery winner – how much do you think he netted during the scam that surrounded the Commonwealth Games in India in 2010? Your guess is as good as mine, but considering that India lost thousands of crores because of the corruption, it’s safe to assume that Kalmadi netted a king’s ransom. But, the utter shame and disrespect he brought onto this country is something that’ll go down in history. Inflated amounts of the money spent, unaccounted for budgets, dissatisfied athletes, and of course, the international media recognising India for the sham it called the Commonwealth Games. The games in 2010 will be written about for all the wrong reason, and the man responsible for this international fiasco, Suresh Kalmadi is one of sport’s most hated men. It’s time for this man to buy a one way ticket to nowhere because this is exactly where he left the games.
This is a man who believes that you can have a decent meal in Mumbai for Rs. 12! I wonder where Raj Babbar is eating his meals because my stick of gum costs more! Of course, unless he’s referring to times gone by, his heydays when he could afford something for Rs. 12. It’s time for Raj Babbar to step out of his glass palace and take a walk down the streets of Mumbai. Streets? I’m sorry, potholed roads that are passed off as streets. But then again, politicians make statements, retract them apologise and make even more promises that are as empty as the Rs. 12 comment and as dangerous as that pothole you and I will be walking on and driving on. Raj Babbar needs to be beamed to a planet that serves him meals for Rs. 12!
If one were to sit and count the number of scams Sharad Pawar was involved in and responsible for, it would take all of eternity and more. This is a man who’s known to live, breathe and eat money. Land scams, wheat scams, stamp paper scams, land allotment scams, him being names in the Radia tapes – name it and you’ll be certain to find a Pawar connection somewhere. How can one forget that farmer suicides were at an all-time high when Sharad Pawar was the Minister of Agriculture! And considering that he termed farmer suicides as ‘normal’, it’s hardly surprising to realise that this is a man on a mission…. mission fill your own coffers! Of course, he does own large chunks of land in Maharashtra. Any guesses how he has acquired them? This politician also has his filthy fingers in sports. Considering that he was the President of the Board of Cricket Control in India from 2005-2008, one can only guess how much he made on the side. Does India need him? We think not.
