May be you already heard the news that the Union Textiles Minister Dayanidhi Maran allegedly used his Union Telecom Minister's license during UPA-1 to build a BSNL exchange at his home to benefit his family owned Sun TV company. It seems they made close to 5 million calls per month for the Sun TV purposes which were never paid. Taking the torch on this amusement, CranksCorner brilliantly satirized the story with that of a minister who convinced the railways to build an exclusive railway station with tracks leading directly to his farmhouse.
Let's stop pretending for a minute and think. Don't these powerful people live well? Come On. Admit it. Want more? Rahul Gandhi's birthday is now "Farmer Rights Day" (Just to ensure that those fundamental rights denied to them will be given back).
This reminded me of our early-man days when we used to just slay a whole line of trees just to build a fake bridge directly from our den to the pond and leading to the top of a coconut tree - all for fun. Those were the REAL days of freedom, when we had everything - not a care in the world, time and resources to do anything we want, destroy anything we find cute and hump anything that moves. The real freedom was then. No rules - Just free-willed awesomeness. Indeed, the Early Man's life was like a rich minister.
What changed? What's the difference between 2011 BC and 2011 AD? A whole bunch of poor suckers and some lame-ass laws to control them. If it were not for the poor, all of us would be rich. Now tell me who is the real problem !!!
