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.
In news that led to a swift decline in Infosys shares, the Indian government has announced that it will be forming a committee to study the internet. This was after Pakistani cyber-terrorists were revealed to have caused massive communal disturbances across the country last week.
“The government is always keen to master new technologies,” said a spokesperson, “The issue will be addressed on a war footing. Our first step is to set up a committee which will select the committee members. We have sent out faxes to suitable candidates. Unsuitable candidates will be invited personally.”
Education Minister Kapil Sibal has reluctantly agreed to chair the selection committee. “Searching for Sonia Gandhi cartoons is a full time job,” he said, “But now that the education system is in good shape, I should be able to find some time.”
