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.

Pome of the Day

Big Red Flashie Light 

Mama, can we get the car

A big, red, flashie light?

Flish! Flash! The light will go

Such a pretty sight

If police are on the lookout

It can keep us out of sight

Also very useful

If we have to catch a flight

Look, look there goes one of them!

Quick, get to the side.

If he comes and stops here

You don’t want to take a ride

Why can’t we be more like him?

And make them all give side?

Even when he gets out, see

He’s walking very wide

Mama, what does papa do?

Is our future bright?

Please say we can get one too

A big, red, flashie light

    Poignant and a bit melancholic.

    The kid’s a bit depressed, but remains hopeful.
