Fasting, a fashion statement for netas

Fasting is a sure way of not losing weight for our netas who suffer from anorexia ( inability to digest stability ) but for gaining mileage that far outweighs the need for stability. By fasting one can achieve lo and behold, the creation of new states like Telengana and Gorkhaland. The strict dieters are not runway models of the fTV age but netas whose attire are as skimpy. So a bout of fasting here and a bout of fasting there by TRS chief CKR and Gorka Janamukti Morcha and shapes are redefined and to no surprise rather permanently. There are side effects, but is any body worried? Our netas have devised ways to carve the mass that would make weight loss procedures like liposuction look rather ordinary.

And at the centre we have an Italian puppeteer who has probably devised her own ways for making the men around her rather weightless. Ha, I see one floating with a turban and another floating with a pristine white dhothi. There is not much gravity that exists within the centre which helps tremendously in enhancing the weightlessness.

In a country where 40% of the country fast because they are needy, we have political leaders who fast after sucking off the wealth of this country and they dont forget to burp too at the same time. Shame on the center for giving in to these demands. Mr Nandy rightfully said that very soon we will have independent suburbs after a few councilors fast and Mr Koda will carve his own territory within Jarkhand and ban the CBI from entering it. As per the erstwhile Nandy, he coined it “Kodaland”. Hilariously Telengana wants Hyderabad as its capital. A request of idiocy and laced with insanity. Was this the reason that Secunderabad was made twin city to Hyderabad? Any answers will help. Those who must talk keep mum.

    My question is what are the citizens doing while the leaders are playing their political game? Satyam on Mr.B’s blog once commented on how in India the education system is so focused on providing the young adults of the country skills to make a living that the system ignores the social or political well being. How many of our children go into political or social sciences, or do parents allow children to pursue? It is the lethargy of the people and I include myself in that. Time and time again it was proven that if people have the will, leaders become helpless. India is bogged down with population and lethargy which arises due to the fight for survival and pursuit of daily bread.

  2. Lakshmi, so well spoken. I completely agree with you. Children are not encouraged to enter politics as a norm. In fact it is not a norm to be educated to be in politics and the sytsem allows for criminals and poorly educated people to get into it. The common man has other issues to deal with as you point out, the main being daily bread. I think the next gen are a bit smarter, after Mumbai 26/11 it was the younger lot that was vociferous to sack the deputy CM for his irresponsible comments. The next gen ( educated ) need to take a stand and get into main stream politics.

  3. Dear Sharmila,

    While I do agree with you that the Government must not easily succumb to the blackmailing tactics of regional satraps, I also believe that if the division of a particular State is going to open the doors of progress and development to the region, then one should leave aside all other considerations and wholeheartedly welcome such decisions. A case in point is the recently constituted State of Uttarakhand, which was carved out of Uttar Pradesh. After becoming a separate State, the hitherto neglected part of U.P. has witnessed tremendous growth. Apart from the tourism industry, which has continued its upward swing, the State has seen a massive upsurge in capital investment and industrial growth. All of this has naturally benefited the people of the region and with it the GDP of the country too.

  4. Hi Melwyn, good to see you here and thank you for your comment. Lets take Jharkhand as a counter example to Uttarakhand, the state has been plundered and looted. My point is that the administration of the state needs to be seamless irrespective of the state’s size and dividing it or multiplying it is not the solution. If Telengana has been neglected then it is wholly the failure of the state governance and the central command. Partitions seldom work and Uttarakhand is rare case. Karnataka would also follow suit if Andhra gets chipped. A part of Karnataka would wish to be merged with Mahrashtra given the issues in the past in areas like Belgaum etc.We are a country of 28 states and 8 union territories. If we let every vested interest have its way we will be a country of 280 states and 80 union territories. Not to forget the electoral nightmares!

  5. do articulate your thoughts so well.:)

  6. Thank you Sharmila, it was a great pleasure to see and learn about this other side to you. What caught my attention on BigBlog was your style of addressing Mr. Bachchan as Lion King, but after meeting you here I must say that you are no less a lioness yourself, or Lion Queen if you please. So I cannot dare disagree with you…just kidding. I totally agree with you that if the separation of Telengana ends up setting a bad precedent, then it will be very hard to control the ambitions of several separatist forces. As you very rightly pointed out, the solution lies is in providing good, clean and efficient governance.

  7. Melwyn..thanks again. I shudder at what would happen to Kashmir after this. And it also appears that the fasters have got their way!

    Not really Sharmila… looks like people are winning. They are protesting and TV 9 news channel is showing people burning effigy of Mr. Chidambaram…I see slogans for united Andhra everywhere and all the student unions are revolting, and I hope a good omen for the future of the country

  9. Lakshmi – This is wonderful news and lets hope the tempo lasts. It is wonderful to hear that the student unions are taking a strong stand. Along with PC’s there should have been a bigger one of Sonia’s.
