Ravikiranjee......... jinhonein apne "middle class of india" blog post se humaare pappu and chunnu donon ko rula diya aur humaara mood kharaab kiya jisse humnein daal jalaadee jiski vajah se humaare pateedev ne humko chappal se maara. Ravikiranjee, you owe big time!
Becaaaj bharatiya blog bhumika bhaarat ki tarah guntantra hai, kaaryakram ka baaki hissa hum angrezi mein pesh karenge. Pappu ke English sir Handsome Singh Hottie (jo bahut hi dreamy hai) ne anuvaad karne mein humaari maddad ki!
"Dear Middle-Class of India", he says. It is not often in this country, that the middle class of India gets representation, so in the vain hope that I have a voice, I sit up and take notice.
Oh, but no sooner does he have my attention than he proceeds to take a dump over the collective middle class in his misguided, misdirected attempt to save the Indian farmer.
"The topic you need to talk about is restriction you put on farmers, preventing them from selling their land for non-agricultural purposes. No, please don’t change the topic or use euphemisms."
We're not trying to change the topic, Ravikiran, we just don't have a clue what you're talking about! Last time I checked, I had no problem with Namdev selling or not selling his bajra farm to start his own gober gas plant.
Ravikiranjee goes to say that I, the middle-class Indian, is directly responsible for and I quote forcing landless labourers to travel long distances, not letting industries come up in backward areas, for the stunted growth of our cities, not letting small towns in India develop.
I, the middle class Indian who pays debilitating taxes on a not-so-substantial income, who makes up for tax-evading black-money-grubbing rich folk, mafia and so on, who makes excrutiating interest payments to secure a one bedroom hole in the wall in urban India, by owning a house or piece of land in those cities, am directly benefiting from the cruelty I am inflicting on farmers.
It is still unclear to me, the bumbling, clueless middle class Indian (who didn't get a chance to vote by the way but who's counting?) just exactly how I am responsible for the a problem so huge and involved given that Ravikiran also implicates corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, land sharks and industrialists.
Main Geeta ki (aur Ammu aur Billo ki bhi) saugandh khaake kehtee hoon ki main koi bhi politician ya industrialist ko nahin jaantee! Sach!!
There are also some mysterious statistics thrown in a charmingly arbitrary fashion- the source of these citations, much like Ravi's cranial matter is missing.
“Why have the benefits of liberalization not reached the poor even after 15 years of liberalization?”
I'll tell you why, for the same reason that
1. hundreds of crores of rupees can be masked in fodder costs
2. cops are going around raping young girls
3. Sanjay Dutt is a glorified hero and a leutinant general in the Indian army isn't
Maybe there is a real reason for these and other travesties. Maybe there is a solution. But a pompous and unsubstantiated taunting of a largely powerless, helpless section of society isn't it.
