Phatte: So, the monsoons are finally here huh? Don’t you just love the feel of the rains? The beautiful breeze that flows and how everything is green in Mumbai?

Vijay: You mean of what little green is left in the city? I’m not really enjoying the rains. My house is getting more unstable day by day. Imagine what a day of continuous rain will do to it.

Phatte: But didn’t your MLA start off some initiative to rebuild houses in the chawl? I noticed the posters plastered all over the place.

Vijay: Yes he did. Just like he promised electricity, subsidized food tickets for the needy and a school exclusively for the chawl kids. Somehow those “schemes” are yet to be started and it’s been couple of years already since the last elections.

Phatte: Well, I think you should talk to your MLA about this.

Vijay: That will take at least a few years. What to do about my house till then?

Phatte: Why a few years?

Vijay: Well, the MLA comes only a month before the elections and then leaves a month after. And even during the rallies and pre-election chaos, he only visits some chawls, picks up the weakest looking kids and talks to the women. We just wave at him from a distance.

  6. A says:

    Facts + Sarcasm = Food for thoughts.Let me ask one question:- Who elects them in offices? As far as I know democracy is still alive in India


  7. thats such a sorry state of affairs, wish people would judt refuse to elect such people..but then its a choiceless choice….maybe its time to use "no vote"


  8. Madhu says:

  16. Smitha says:

    That is so the sad truth of what happens in India.. Politicians surface only during election time, and that too selectively.. All the best for the contest!


  17. Dear Cherry, count me in……


  18. Punam says:

    Politics is beyond my understanding, although I agree about the sorry state of affairs.. reminds me of another saying, "Everybody talks about the climate, but nobody does anything about it." maybe a similar case, but sadly, one voice is not enough to make a visible change. Thank you for visiting my blog and putting up those questions. In my story which is half-real and half-fiction, nobody was forced to get married. (It was arranged) He had a past, which he could not let go of. He ruined his present and his future, not to mention the bride's life as well. Some ppl see no reason. Regards, Punam


  19. Sandhya says:

    If you do this discussion, sitting in front of the neta also, nothing will happen. He will just listen to it and laugh along with you…they are shameless people, Bikram.All the best for the contest!


  20. @Raj:- Thank you so much for saying that .. and oh yes they shud be hanged without furthur delay 🙂 I second you on that thought … @A:- Thanks I am glad that you think that. YEah we select them thats what makes it more pathetic.. 🙂 @A new beginning:- yeah its true pathetic state of affairs we have. and i like the idea of NOT VOTING or have a option to NO ONE.. so that every politicians security is taken away and no one wins :)@MAdhu:- With you on that standing ovation yayyyyyyyyyyyy thanks.


  21. @Cherry:- aajaa tunn aa taan sahin england.. anytime brother ANYTIME… @SM:- Thanks buddy.. yeah we do hopefully many more will write @smitzy:- thanks.@Neena Sharma :- yes i guess we have got used to it now, so no one wants to do anything .. its become a NORM i guess @Deepa:- I will be writing on the colelge very soon , got the weekend free to write about it so hopefully soon 🙂 @RAmesh:- True and a good friend like YOU too.. cheers to you too @Smitha:- YEs true they surface only then or when they need support we never see them when common man needs them … sad truth But we dont understand this or learn from mistakes , and still vote for the same people .. thanks for the wishes and same ot you tooo.. @Bhupi:- thanks


  22. @Punam:- Politics is beyond everyones understanding , even the politicians dont know what they are doing. Yes true one voice is very less to make a difference but got to start somewhere.. and your story hmmm I understand , in my job here i see that happening so many times especially in our asian community indians a LOT… Thank you for the visit @Sandhya:- EGGJACTLY That what they are NO SHAME whatsoever… for a ticket or seat in politics they will do anything and LITERALLY anything … majority of our mps are idiots hardly educated and those who are soon BECOME UNEDUCATED… @Piashpiash:- THank you will take it up
