With a heavy heart I inform you today that India has died. Death is the ultimate outcome of life. One who is born will definitely die. But the cause of my sorrow is that where India died there was no lack of any care or facility. There was lot of love and care and still death came! Now, what can we do? Just give the condolences. A two minute silence can be observed. India had the protection of the most powerful person on earth. When time comes then even on the most powerful person, the most common person can throw a shoe and people will watch the fun!
I got the news of India's death from Fox News where, from the office of Laura Bush in White House, it was told that India died at the age of 18 years. So is India only 18 years old? Well sir, if the birth was 18 years ago how can the age be more than 18? The happy news is that Laura Bush considered India as part of her family.
Because of her being 18 years old, India was about to get voting rights. Who knows a permanent seat in the Security Council of UN as well! If America wants, what is impossible? But now what, India already died. Now you would say how is this possible that India dies and we are still alive? But this has happened time and again. Mafia killed engineer Satyendra Dubey of the Golden Quadrilateral (highway system built between the four Indian metros) and nothing happened. Manish Gupta was killed when he refused to give 'donations' on the birthday bash of a powerful politician and nothing happened. Take a fresh example, (Mumbai) terrorists were from Pakistan the whole world knew, and Pakistan stares in the eye and chuckles saying they were not from Pakistan. It will keep happening like this in future as well. You give proof and it says they are not sufficient. In future also it will keep saying like this. Even US denied the move to brand Pakistan as a terrorist state or India's 48-hour deadline. The whole world is watching the drama, if this is not dying then what else is?
But you be the World Guru, the economic powerhouse!
Now let me in you on the secret that India is none other than Laura Bush's dear cat whom the lady named India out of love. Some of you, out of excess showing off of national pride will say that the naming of a cat as India has hurt India's national pride. But what can be done of this? This happens all the time! In America Lord Shiv, Lord Ganesh, Mother Kali get printed on sandals and toilet bowls!
Otherwise, a cat is dearer to the master than a dog.
The naming of the cat is not a new story; it was done back in 2001. Then I had written two kunDaliya verses (Kundaliya compilation - 'Apni Apni Lanka' i.e. 'To each his Lanka') so I would like to present those here -
(Translation from the original)
Ramoo, Bhola, such names servants always get
With Lord Ram or Shiva, don't be upset
Don't be upset, 'ridiculed'? Why do you say?
A cat is better than a dog in every way.
Joshi, being Their dog world wags and yelps aloud
We are Their dear cat, we should be proud!
(Bhola = innocent, or Lord Shiva; Ramoo = from Lord Ram)
Just because India has become Bush's cat
Why the anger, and why are you sad?
Why are you sad, don't you know elite pet
Traveling to exotic places, in luxury they get
Say Joshi Poet, purr and enchant them, O pet
Forget mouse, chicken that too Kentucky, you get.
