50. Read what you don't hear

Drawing new year resolutions out from the year full of loud scams and shamed silence has been challenging to both the intellect as well as the instinct. Intutively, however, a list of eleven resolutions emerge from the super-conscious state of the mind for the disturbed state of the country. Here's the list:

To enhance innocent forgetfulness, researchers will come up with a new drug `scam-o-cin'; To make `corruption' one of the fundamental rights, the constitution will be urgently amended; To develop next breed of `pimp journalists', suitable media courses will be designed; To expand network of elevated roads and express highways, pedestrian and cyclists will be made to pay road tax; To achieve instant name and fame, parents will introduce TRP rankings for their kids.

To wipe onion tears, cooking-without-onions will be subsidised by the government; To enhance the role of black economy, the currency notes will be coloured black; To compensate for forest destruction due to mining, all telecom towers will be painted green; To sustain stinted image of the judiciary, the blind goddess of justice will remain blindfolded; To add glamour quotient to everyday lives, bollywood stars will stoop down to cleaning cars and washing linens for a price; and To add insult to injury, micro-finance will be the next big killer across the countryside.

And to stay away from it, I will dig into the sands.

The Jalebi is maturing like old wine. Our polity should take note of this piece of Jalebi.

Year 2010 became memorable due to the scams; and 2011 will become one if these 11 resolutions are adopted by the parliament.
