Mayawati - 5 crore garland

I would like to pay homage to the humility of Mayawati who very "generously" consented to be adorned by a garland made of 50,000 currency notes of 1,000 rupees totaling to a paltry sum of 5 crores. After all that she has done for the state of UP and their poor people, this is what she gets. An uproar regarding the garlands worth. Now insensitive. I urge Indians to read the accomplishments, for "betterment" of the people of UP, below and give her the credit due to her, and totally deserved.
  1. Erecting statues worth 2000 crores. Beautification of the state making it pleasing to the eye. What a noble deed.
  2. Eminent domain - usurping land from 9,000 farmers is a feat par excellence for someone with such humble background
  3. Launching welfare schemes worth 7,000 crores all on self welfare. After all, charity begins at home and god helps those who help themselves. What a showcase of character and leadership trait. Leading by example.
  4. Last but not the least, embarking on selling the truly priceless Taj and planning to reate a shopping corridor behind the heritage monument. What a vision.

And people create a furore over a meagre 5 crores. Hmmmpfffff........

Womens bill

Men are intimidated by powerful women. It has been re-confirmed by the Indian parliament. You'd think that most men and all men in the lok/rajya sabha's who think that it is a man's world will not be spooked to pass a reservation bill but the story was completely different. The brouhaha surrounding the passing of the bill and the amazing walk outs by so many only reinforces the belief. Men are intimidated by powerful women. Only Sonia Gandhi was able to restrain her congressmen and ensure that they passed the bill irrespective of what they feel. Again, Men are intimidated by powerful women. You get the drift......
