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.’

    Reaching for Aakash ?

    Yes , Mr Prime Minister

    You can deliver on your promises , by distributing Aakash2 tablets ( being developed by IIT- Bombay ) to 20 Crore Indians who have registered for Aadhar Identification so far
    In your Independence Day speech , you made following promises – all of which can come true by employing latest software / apps , specified by IIT-B

    Before distributing Aakash2 to 20 Crore Aadhar Card-Holders , just ensure that these tablets are integrated / pre-installed with :

     “ Aadhar Identification Number “ of Nandan Nilekani

    To fulfill your promise :

    “ It will be our endeavour to ensure that all households benefit from bank accounts in the next 2 years. “

     “ Mobile Wallet “ app of Sam Pitroda

    To fulfill your promise :

    “ We want to create a system in which money from Government schemes – pension for old people, scholarship for students and wages for labourers – can be credited directly into people’s bank accounts. This would reduce inconvenience to the beneficiaries, make it easy for them to receive payment and increase transparency. For this work, we will take help from the Aadhar scheme under which about 20 crore people have been registered so far. “

     “ Educational Apps “ of Kapil Sibal ( installed on Aakash2 )

    To fulfill your promise :

    “ Now we will focus on improving the quality of education. In the next few months we will put in place a system of continuous assessment of the benefit our children are getting from teaching.
    We want to create many new job opportunities for our youth in the coming years. To achieve this it is necessary that we train them in skills which our economy needs. It is our endeavour to put in place a system in which training facilities are available in many new skills.

     “ My Jobs “ app [ freely downloadable from Google Play ]

    To fulfill your promise :

    “ I promise that we will work hard for creation of new employment opportunities for our young men and women living in villages and cities “

    Mr Prime Minister ,

    You have less than 18 months to fulfill your promises before 2014 National Elections

    There is no time to waste !

    And the best part is :

    No need to pass a bill in the Parliament . No need to worry about “ Coalition Dharma “ !

    With regards

    hemen parekh

    Jobs for All = Peace on Earth
