The Republic Strikes Back, as These Romans are Crazy

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

It is a period of anti-corruption civil war. Rebel Residential spaceships,
striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil
Galactic Roman Empire.

During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the
Empire’s ultimate weapon, the BABA-STAR, an armored space station with enough
power to destroy an entire planet.

Pursued by the Empire’s sinister agents, Team ANNA races home aboard their
starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save US people and restore
freedom to the galaxy….

Hey George Lucas, sorry could not stop myself after the ‘what were they thinking moment of my government, and your historic opening crawl directly fit into it.  (Ramu, please no remake).

After today’s “what were they thinking”, moment is a great cases-study for political maneuvering. Things were moving quick and fast, and as one tweet said ‘it seems Anna and Congress were going for Fast 6 and Furious 6 movie part’. Sanity was thrown out
of the door, and unlike Bollywood movies one had the Delhi police taking action on their own.

The audacity of our honorable leaders to come in the TV and say the police acted on their own and it was not the center’s decision. OMG- we all are surely going to hell… it was like the thousands who were sacked from Jet, and the head of Jet did not know about. Tsk..Tsk, if the Astrix and Oblelix were present you know what would they say?

‘These Romans are Crazy”

Yes friends, countrymen and fellow Romans, it is the time of corruption and the night of corruption. We all are corrupt, and committed some level of corruption in our lives. This line of argument was also been used by anti-corruption (read ANNA) people in the TV, so say this bill will not root out corruption.

OK, so let me get something right… if that’s the case does it imply none of the bill plays a role, and Good Lord is guiding us towards the promised land. Who are they trying to fool, are we living in 1975?. Wait it does not mean I am insulting the intelligence of my fellow citizens of that time.

Its just our leaders are in motion of strategic paralysis in trying to use old strategies. Even the strategy of George.W.Bush (beta of Sr. Bush), of defaming opponent to a level he looses credibility. Pop Quiz : Who among you have credibility… and you don’t answer. The Janta answers?

It’s the issue damn it. I don’t care for Anna, but if Gillani can come and RANT in the capital city, great Arundhati Roy can speak about the Maoists openly (without sedition charges on either) , why stop a 74 year old man, fearing for this health. See the blunders our honorable foreign minister does. I hope he does not have Alzheimer or Dementia otherwise we may hear ‘Delhi belongs to Pakistan’.

Uff!!!!!! It’s the issue of Corruption, and see its importance below:

Our PM spoke the word ‘CORRUPTION’, 16 times in the Independence Day Speech. See the trend below on the usage of word – corruption on the same day previous years:
2007 – 3 times
2008 – 0 time (I was surprised but double checked)
2009 – 3 times
2010 – 1 time
2011 – 16 times

A CNN comment post claims to know who trained our PM. On the following statement by the honorable PM:
“I believe that there is no single big step which we can take to eradicate corruption. In fact, we will have to act
simultaneously on many fronts,”
Singh said.

Our observer commented:
“I believe that there is no single big step which we can take to eradicate corruption.”
Spoken like a true politician. The english has taught them very well.

Other notable (non Indian names) comments:

  • Indian politicians stop being corrupt only when they drop dead. Rajiv Gandhi, when Prime Minister, did a secret operation to see exactly how much government funds actually reach a designated project. Only 16%!!!. 84% went to the minister, the
    governor, the mayor, the quantity surveyors, the contract… more
  • The British legacy of divide and rule lived its life and is out dated, bureaucracy the catalyst of British democratic setup here is most corrupt. In totality the British setup   is total failure in last 60 plus years that was followed blindly by this country. More refined and clearly defined  american system blended with localized indian spices is the future course of action
  • Indians have but a facade of democracy left! In actual no matter which party in power, its 5 yrs of despotism for them every 5 yrs. Not that I support the chinese but sometimes I do wonder if they are better govt than us. I mean we have every
    ailment that they have (including the human rights violation, corruption etc)and more (terrorism) and we dont have economy and infrastructure like them.
  • BTW, the comments from KS and PC after the arrest were disgusting, ostentatious, arrogant, not to mention blatant and outright disgrace to the democratic spirit of the nation. I swear I could see the political filth dripping from both there
    faces when they took the press conference to explain anna’s arrest Democracy or Dummy-crazy!! One noble guy want to
    make things better, instead of having his words listened, he is now detained. Fiasco!!

So in this strategic paralysis that our grand old party finds itself now (wish Gandhi would have disbanded them then. Yes he really wanted to!) They would need to search a leader and by the looks of things quickly.

In the end I would like to say what I heard from one of the participants in the news channel. From SLAVE we have become SUBJECTS, but we still have not become CITIZENS!

So till then….than..tha…than..tha (star war music), go Team ANNA!!!! And other ANTI –CORRUPTION CRUSADERS.

DISCLAIMER: Sense of humor people read. Ranting of frustrated citizens. The images and story is for illustrative purpose, and i don’t own copy right of George Lucas or Astrix stuff 🙂
