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.

In a move hailed by the government, the government has clarified that the recent controversy over Foreign Direct Investment was the result of a typographical error.
“It was all a simple misunderstanding,” said a spokesperson, “What we actually want to promote is Vadra Direct Investment or VDI.”
This innovative scheme is designed to keep Indian assets in the hands of Indians, specifically Robert Vadra, son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi, who has lost 20 kilos in the past five years.
Some experts are puzzled by the use of the term ‘direct investment’, but a devotee of Mrs. Gandhi has provided an explanation. The devotee is Law Minister Salman Khurshid, who had promised to give his life for Mrs. Gandhi, but backed out, disappointing millions.
“So far, people from high families were owning things indirectly,” said Mr. Khurshid. “We want to usher in a new era of transparency.”
