Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.
After the departure of former Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee to the big mansion in the sky, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has personally assumed control of the Indian economy. In a statement issued from its hospital bed, the economy has expressed grave misgivings.
“I’m, like, a developing economy,” said the economy. “I need to become self-sufficient. How old is this guy? A hundred and two? He still won’t do anything without asking mummy. What kind of role-model is that ?”
According to sources within the PMO, the PM is unable to respond to the economy at this point in time, ‘as Madam has asked for bed tea.’
