Poll-Itchics

Saturday, April 25, 2009
What will opposition be thinking if Congress(I) **wins?
"Cong Rats!"

Why the heck did the Congress(I) chose such a silly way of campaigning?

I mean opposition could easily squash such a squishy campaign with:
Pros and Cons.
Pros Good. Cons Bad.
Progress Good. So Congress?

(The above pic is pilfered from http://sayesha.blogspot.com/2008/11/it-happens-only-in-india.html.

Confessing the crime.
Hope she doesn't give
A damn or a dime!
-An unpilfered and very deep and beautiful poem by Stupidosaur)

By the way I wonder why this fellow who calls himself Shael decided to adderess a song to the top leaders of Congress(I) (Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, in case you were wondering), and then decided to changes the topic after the very first line?


And why did they have to buy out the Rehman song? Didn't they realise that it was Lehman and not Rehman, asking for a bail-out and not buy-out, and that too from an altogether different Congress :P.
Can't they have ruined the charm of some other uncharming silly song, say like the above song, which is anyways about their very own leaders to begin with (Though not to end with :P)

Anyways, reading this post till this point, you may have started wondering what are my political affiliations?
Am I con-Congress(I), since whatever I mentioned about it was in the semi-satirical vein?
Am I pro-Congress(I), since that is the only party that found mention here ?
After all, in Politics publicity with any mathematical sign is publicity. Perhaps only the absolute value counts!

In case you were all wondering that, welcome to the boat in which I have been sailing all along :P! Even I don't know my political affiliation. The matter didn't get sorted even during this elections. Which basically means, I did not vote :P

Dont go all that "Haila! Oh your irresponsible jerk of a citizen!" on me now.

I don't vouch for 'Minority Appeasement'
I don't vouch for 'Majoity Appeasement'

Each government will try to do some good things succeed a bit, fail a bit.
After all, it has to try, cos it wants to come into power the next time :P.

Each government will have its scandals, some caught, some not.
After all politicians will be the Fat Bastards that they are.

Terrorist attacks are not dependent on Government.

I know my vote makes a difference. But does that difference make a difference?

God supposedly does not play dice with Universe. How can I play dice with Country?
Definitely knowing which party will be better would take multiple doctorates after MBA through IIM A or better. The vast complexities of variables of human, social, economic and international factors overwhelm me :P

OK I will cut the dramatisation. I basically did not register at the place I am currently staying :P. I do have my voter ID at the 'original home' and I did vote in a previous election :P.

Tata Tea bola,
"Agar election key din, aap vote nahin kar rahey ho, toh aap so rahey ho!"

Isiliye mein election ke din sachmuch pura din soya. Agar kuchh aur karta, toh upar likhit niyamanusar woh karya apney aap soney mein parivartit ho jata :p.

"JaaGoJaaGoJaaGoJaaGo Rey!
JaaGo Rey!"

Arrey haab bubah Jaa raha hoon!
Alright alright, I am Going!
Why so much repetiive tautology!? Why so much noise? Jaa and Go are the same Rey :P!
"JaaGo Rey!"


You could have just said "Poda!"




**Yeah. Notice that I? It stands for Indira I think. We all seem to have forgotten that its Congress(I), not just 'Congress'. There were/are hoards of other Congresses other than Congress(I) Mushrooming in the Great Indian Political Puddle.

Slaps forehead.

Not hers, his's!

**SLAP**

Lazy ass. That's for not voting and coming up with all that blabber to not vote.

Hmpf!

Why don't you stand in the next elections? So many people are tired of the boring speeches, I bet they'll vote for you because they have no other good choices to vote by, they might as well vote for the punny choice?

:P

@Abhinav

For a moment I thought you had me there! You sounded so right.

Congress-I : Congress India!
The next version of the Indian National Congress!

The only basis I had when writing the post was some evening news broadcasts on DD some two decades back, in front of which I used to sit not really understanding anything, but sinking in everything. "Rain of Thanushars are likely to occur...", and stuff like that (Which actually meant "Rain or thundershowers are likely to occur..", in case you were wondering). Somewhere in similar sinking in without much understanding process, I had heard "Indira Gandhi ki party - Congress (I) ne aaj.." or something like that, and somehow remembered it now,decades later, when posting!

But when I heard read your comment, it sounded very convincing, and I was about to say,
"Dude, I stand corrected!"

But that would have been a blatant lie as I was actually sitting, and not standing!

So I googled. Wikipedia to the rescue! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_National_Congress

Look carefully under 'Indira Gandhi'. You will get the proof!

And yes, I have seen the 'Bhaya Ho'.




@deluded

and perhaps the longest comment above too? ;)



@Sayesha

1)Thank you thank you!
2)Oh was it ? I thought earlier photo was a daylight photo with a small board saying "Vote Congress, Vote Progress!" *confused look*

I guess then my short term memory is not as good as the long term one Congress-Indira related one:P

But then that is perhaps normal considering that life was much more real to me back then than it is now! :P

3)You are the celebrity queen ( no longer princess ;) ) of blog world, but do visit sometimes this Humble Stupid Abode (did you read that as Adobe ;) ?)

@Vinisha

//Not hers, his's!

Sonia ka sar peeto ya Manmohan ka, kya fark padta hai. Ek hi baat hai na ;)


And about me standing in elections, I already mentioned that I dont play dice with country. In playing dice outcome may be good or bad, even then I dont want to risk it. Then how you ask me to ENSURE and SEAL the doom of the country this way!
