Brexit

British citizens have voted to exit EU with a small margin. EU members are showing signs of protectionism. With such Free Trade agreements, what we see on the surface is the people’s movement. What British people saw was Romanians coming and taking jobs in Britain and health benefits. What they do not see is British companies selling goods in other countries without tax, investing in other countries without much hassles.

May be the youngsters/urban population understand the dynamics of staying in EU and feel necessary to stay in EU for better job prospect and voted to STAY IN.
Will have to see in what direction other countries are heading. Immediate ones are Scotland planning for another referendum to stay within UK and the US elections.

Its time all the major powers revisit the Free Trade Agreements and consider the social and economic concerns/requirements of its people and those of the counterpart rather than just the interests of the business corporations. Its time Human well being is one the key drivers of business leadership.

Alas! the results are out

After a wait of three weeks after first voting, the results are out.
Congress won the majority to form government at centre and in AP.  Its sad that TDP did not win.
Its interesting to watch what Chiranjeevi is going to do. Wish him a long life in public service.
Any way whoever is going to come,  is going to loot, never visit the place he is elected from. They don’t have to because they have bought the vote with money and liquor. It is our choice and its waste of making third person comments. We are part of the rotten system. No matter what we say, we stink of rust.

I hoped there will be a new government which would lay new roads in Hyderabad. That hope is lost. these hoodlums are again going to just patch the holes as they form. I dont know why i feel helpless. I am not acting. I am standing in line with infinte line of citizens waitin for someone to make a step forward. there are a few who are dare to step forward but are thrown away into darkness.

No matter what these stinking leaders throw at us, we sincerely go through our routine of over crowded cities, dry farm lands, filthy slums.

It goes on until some foriegn force again takes over the country. I pray that not to happen. but do nothing to avert that.

I did not vote

I did not vote this time too. I am not feeling quilty because I applied for the voter ID card online but my name was not in the voter list. I don’t know whom to blame for this. Partly me. I applied in the last minute.
Anyway this time too I leave the election to others some of whom sold themselves to money and liquor. I am partly to blame.
Even if you vote to any party seeing the manifesto or the promises of the local candidate, it is not guaranteed that they will be implemented. They have no accountability.
It is like you give your dog something to eat for five years, after that it stands before you wagging its tail.  What are all these dogs going to do once there will be nothing left in the country and no swiss biscuits.

Another Fodder Scam!

Finance Minister Mr. Pranab Mukherjee has constituted a high level committee to find out why the inflation is increasing when prices of the most essential items are in control. The committee has reported that the rise in inflation is due to the sky rocketing prices of Fodder! The price of fodder has increased more than hundred fold. A private channel has conducted a sting operation and found out that all the fodder in the country is going to Bihar. The recently built Lalu-Rabri Temple is attracting many devotees and God Lalu’s favorite offering -Fodder has become scarce!
Where is all the Fodder offered to God Lalu is going? The nation has to come to terms with another Fodder scam.

With the people’s leaders never visiting the constituencies they are elected from, such temples for them are needed.

Sonia in Hyderabad

An italian fairy has descended on the city of Nawabs and all the roads around the Parade grounds got freshly laid. May be this fairy comes to our bereaved and neglected Dil’sick’ Nagar. The chota mota leaders lined up themselves on the advertisement boards to be noticed by her. Never the parade grounds was decorated so lavishly. Our freedom fighters and slain leaders have lost their charm to Sonia.

Lets see if her charm will be ‘Abhaya Hasta” for Congress in the state.
