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.


Chhatarpur resident Gagan Sapra has created a stir within his community after putting his son up for sale on eBay.

“The marriage season is coming up, and I was confused by all the prices,” confessed Sapra. “My son has worked hard to become a government officer. I want to get the best possible price from his in-laws. Currently the market is fluctuating a lot. Then my cousin-brother suggested eBay. ‘I got a good price for my mobile,’ he said. ‘Why don’t you try with Pappu?’”

Bidding has been brisk, and has included cows, transistors, large plots of land and premium SUVs. The auction has been extended till Monday.

“I need to get at least a Mercedes,” explained Mr. Sapra. “Otherwise my prestige will suffer.”

      I’m honoured you think so. Yours is fun too. I do try to keep my kids entertained from time to time. It’s the least I can do.
