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.


Besieged by angry Congress party members who happened to be on holiday in New York, Time magazine issued a clarification from an underground bunker somewhere in New Jersey.

“Many people are upset because we called Indian PM Manmohan Singh an underachiever,” said Time magazine. “We intended no disrespect to Mr. Singh. We just meant that all his achievements were under someone else. Very often he could not see what he was doing because he was bent over too much. This may have affected his performance, but our observation related mainly to his position and posture.”

The PMO expressed relief at the clarification. “Posture is not a problem,” said the PMO. “Even at the age of ninety two, the PM is very flexible.”

    Just take a Hard look at the Prime Minister! Like every one on earth, age finally catches up with all of us. He is now an octogenarian, his gait is unsteady, speech is slow and mind does not work fast. All he has done is to “do nothing in the Corruption-Raj” of his domain. The country has down the drain.

    First of all, he is ‘under’ bosses who are not visible in the organisation structure but are very much there. Then the poor guy is also suffering from a mild form of progeria.. after all, he has leap-frogged ( God bless him and his not so young bones ) from his eighties to his nineties… How much more flexibility can one expect ? That he is “performing” under such trying circumstances is good enough… now to judge him for that….. tut tut..

      I didn’t want to explore the ‘under’ aspect too much, let alone performance. I don’t know much about skating, but I think the ice is already quite thin!
