During the election campaign, I was patiently gathering some sound bites from the many worthies that we have. And here is what I had gathered. What I got to see was a pattern. It was the completely-out-of-touch-with-reality’ attribute of all these worthies.
While Omar Abdullah’s wisdom amazed me, the combined wisdom of Mayawati and Mamata floored me. I didn’t want to die out of laughter and hence did not include the wisdom of many worthies from Tamil Nadu. And consciously I have avoided the sparkles of wisdom of the ‘stupid in white’ – Rahul – for I would have to write several posts just to cover his erudition.
I have avoided Sonia’s wisdom for that would need a separate dossier.
I did not consider the Communists worthy of any mention as it is not right to talk about ideologies that are long dead and gone. In India, people who are dead are not made fun of.
Read the gems from Manmohan and Oommen Chandy too. They exposed their wisdom no only when in power but also just prior to the counting date.
Hope you enjoy these ‘gems’ and know who all to avoid in the future too.
