India is a developing country...!!!

WORTH READING .....  "MAY OR MAY NOT GO WITH YOU"

 

 An Old Story:

 The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and
 laying up supplies for the winter.

 The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs & dances & plays the
 summer away.

 Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or
 shelter so he dies out in the cold.


 Indian Version:


 The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and
 laying up supplies for the winter.

 The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the
 summer away.

 Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and
 demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed
 while others are cold and starving.
 NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper
 next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled
 with food.

 The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor
 Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

 Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.

 Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that
 Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter .

 Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian Government for
 not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.

 The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the
 Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt
 support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance).

 Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for 'Bengal Bandh' in
  West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.
 CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard
 in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and
 Grasshoppers.

 Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway
 Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.

 Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ' Prevention of Terrorism
 Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the
 winter.

 Arjun Singh makes 'Special Reservation ' for Grasshoppers in Educational
 Institutions & in Government Services.



 The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left
 to pay his retroactive taxes,it's home is confiscated by the Government
 and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV.



 Arundhati Roy calls it ' A Triumph of Justice'.

 Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice '.

 CPM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden '

 Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly.




 Many years later...

 

 

 

 


 The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar
 company in Silicon Valley
,



 100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere
 in India ,

 


 .
 ..AND




 
As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the
 grasshoppers,
