Just recently some one told me Mayawati is going to become our Prime Minister in the next term. The guy who told me, an office colleague is a keen observer of politics, especially the election wrangles and the bargaining after the elections that occur to form alliance. I was taken aback as he completely analysed how BSP would have so many seats and will than demand that Mayawati be made the Prime Minister or forget her alliance. Believe me my colleague is not the only one click here & here. But who cares Anyway !
At that very moment I told my colleague the day Mayawati becomes our Prime Minister I shall jump off our office building. Now if you are wondering how high is my office building, my office is on the first floor and it is a 3 storey building. So if I jump of the third storey, I probably will not die, only have a few limbs broken. That would actually be politically correct, dying would be easier, but if Mayawati would become PM I would have to suffer broken limbs and live in pain. But who cares Anyway !
This is UP, where a chief minister’s birthday is celebrated by money that is funded by the public. No no, no one has any problem that a fund like that is actually collected. Problem only comes if some one refuses and he is killed. Otherwise raising funds for a CM’s birthday celebration is perfectly fine and no one seems to be even questioning that. Like I said who cares anyway !
The opposition party instead of demanding a thorough inquiry and helping the aggrieved don’t even want to hear the dead man’s mother who is asking for a CBI inquiry. They have their agenda, BANDH. This man died because he refused to pay for the Chief Minister’s fund so you other normal citizens stop working for one day. We are the opposition party, if you work we will kill you or ransack your shop. Who cares anyway !
Gandhiji taught us to protest with non violence, to do Satyagrah. But the most powerful tool in his Satyagrah or protest was he didn’t force people to join. People joined him with their own free will. He was not a self proclaimed leader, he was made a leader by the followers. However in stark contrast today our leaders protest by declaring BANDH. No this BANDH would never be followed by our people, no leader can influence people any more but it is just to show the power of the party that has declared the BANDH. So come out his goonda’s, if you dare open your office they will come and force you to shut your office, shop etc. If you oppose, how dare you, your office will be ransacked and the goonda’s will enjoy the goodies of your office. We, the non trouble seeking type will politely obey the BANDH order and have a holiday at home with our children playing scrabble and resume next day. Who cares anyway !
Some guy tried to be brave, some guy refused to be caved down, he didn’t want to give his hard earned money for some useless CM’s birthday, how dare he !! He must die….
Who cares any way !!
