Our Law Makers

*******

I speak Only about Indian law makers, of course. We shall see them under Two headings, namely:

  1. How Close the politicos are to the People, How Well they must be Knowing their Situation, and
  2. How the politicos Live for the People.

Now sit back, and Enjoy Yourselves!

*******

1. How Close the politicos are to the People

This Indian politico, named Datta Phuge, is Unabashedly wearing a shirt made of Gold, estimated at 12,000 English pounds, and that was some years ago. Plus a Lot of Bangles and stuff. Not Bangles, Oh, Sorry! 🙂

And he is Not the only one who does these sorts of things. Indian prime minister modi wore a coat costing a Million Indian rupees! [ Edited: It is learnt now that the suit has been auctioned off at FORTY THREE MILLION Indian rupees! ]

modi does himself well in other ways too, while constantly referring to his ‘poor’ beginnings! As under:

Can You guess whose bedroom this would be?

Chennai CM's bedroom

This belongs to jayalalitha, the current Chief Minsiter of the Supposedly Advanced state of Tamil Nadu in India. And this ‘poor’ woman, kindly drawing a salary of One Rupee to save the exchequer money, has a Ninety (90) Room house, all of this quality. Don’t We all Wish We were Poor like her? 🙂

Nuff said. They Become politicians Just for this; to Make Money.

But are they at least lifting the Standard of the Nation while they fleece Us? You tell me.

politicians suck up to business

politicos, in order to make all that money for themselves, have first to ‘spend,’ throwing a lot of ‘bones’ to the Apathetic Masses, the ‘Sheep’ of George Orwell, by way of Money for Votes, etc, etc. This money they get as Donations from Business houses. And then the politicos give them large business contracts, write off their debts to the tune of Billions, while the Common Man takes up All that Burden.

***

Once elected, the politicos Calmly go to Sleep, Looking Very Busy All the While!

Just Resting, please! …Common Scenes at the Parliament

And what is the Mindset of our Law Makers? Below is the man Siddaramaiah, the Chief Minister of the state of Karnataka, famous for Bangalore, who asked: ‘ What is the big deal about the Rape of a 6 year old?’

What big deal in rape of 6 year old

This man is not an isolated case. Rapes, Gang Rapes, are Nothing for Our lawmakers. Mulayam Singh Yadav, below, said: ‘Boys will be boys.’

Regarding Rape: 'boys will be boys'

***

‘From dismissing rape to suggesting women who get raped be hanged, Indian politicians have been giving us the creeps at regular intervals.’

For doing all this, they are Literally surrounded by Our Empty-Headed police force, at Our Cost.

2. Let Us see How Our politicos Live for the People

jayalalitha, already mentioned, and her ministers make a very good example in this. The other politicos may not be So very Sycophantic. But they also simply ‘live’ for the People, just like this lot.

Here is my opening Shot:

CM's heli welcomed reverently

ministers, Our law makers, welcome the helicopter in which she is arriving, Oh-so-reverently.

The Chief Duty of Tamil Nadu’s ministers? To be Bent before jayalalitha, of course. I do believe they hold Competitions for this.

Ok, just a few more, I promise!

jaya is Obviously enjoying this. I have not been able to ascertain just How this fellow, a minister, a law maker, is feeling. Nor do I know How his Children feel. I do suppose his Wife does not mind this, as he would be bringing home quite a lot of money, by way of being assigned important posts.

It is not only ordinary ministers who live these lives, Totally and Absolutely Devoid of Honour. Here is Panneerselvam, the Ex Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, doing the same Dog with Tail between Legs Stance.

*******

And These, my Dear Folks, are the People, who Make Laws for the Country. Laws that Release the Most Brutal Rapists.

But, as Wise men, notably Periyar has said:

So Long as We are Ready to be Fooled, There WILL be people to Fool Us.

    • Thank You, Pooja, that is a very thoughtful comment indeed.

      Of course the parliament is not a ‘resting’ place.

      Solutions do not Easy. In my opinion, WE, the People, have to realize that WE are the Rulers. That is the meaning of Republic.

      Of course ruling is not just enjoying life and taking things easy. Rather, We have to be Interested and Active in Governance, Question and Challenge bad decisions, (Easy at Local levels), Make politicos change what is necessary, See that Our money is not wasted, Fight against corruption, (Join AAP?!), etc.

      And Remember that it will all take a lot of time, because People have Allowed a Rotten situation to develop.

      Just Join the Fight, my Dear! It is Not an Acrimonious fight. But one taken on for the Welfare of the Humankind.

      Love and Regards. 🙂

      • Yaa, and fight from our own level also stop all small level corruption as we don’t know how big it will be in future.
        And WE, the People can change this by joining politics or by questioning on bad decision. But at right platform in right way.
        Personally i don’t like putla dahan or burning tires as it harm our environment also.
        Sometime we are also traped in media made situation like the recent issue related to Amir khan. Whether all important issue like juvenile law and other matter, but most of the people are bother about what Someone said.
        We all need a intellectual analysis of things before commenting or arguing on that. Before our Vote

      • Well said, my Dear Pooja! …From my Youth, I have been interested in (Good) politics. Because, If We try to fight Alone, We would get Nowhere.

        Am very glad I found the AAP. It is Not the Perfect Party. None ‘can’ be that. It is also very much lacking in political experience.

        It has its share of Lazy, Greedy people. But nobody has been able to show that AAP has been corrupt.

        I have been chosen as the District Treasurer for AAP Karur district of TN.

        Do consider joining it in Your area. We have to strengthen the Good hands, and the togetherness will also strengthen Us.

        Love. 🙂

  1. How distressing. The American Congress is in many way similar except that those fawned over are monied special interests. I am reminded of Mark 8: 36. “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?”

    • That is WONDERFULLY PUT, my Dear Donzo: “in gold we trust.”

      Kudos on that Observation!

      But, let us remember, in a Democracy, if politicos are bad, it is the Fault of the Voters, before and after the elections!

      Let us keep a Firm grip on Our Reins! 🙂

  3. I thought America laid claim to the best politicians money can buy. Apparently it is a worldwide epidemic. I could almost understand the greed if they used their position to help people not that it is good policy. I do not know how elections actually work in India. Here in America we can actually vote them out of office but don’t. Call it stupidity, laziness whatever as long as we recognize it is a national disgrace.

    • Thank You, my Dear Phil! This is all very well put. I congratulate You.

      To write the way elections work in India would take a whole post. Maybe later.

      Thank You for Your Valueable and Candid thoughts. Regards. 🙂
