Here they come

3 May

Well. . . Well. . Hadn’t seen any of my area’s ‘Netas’ till now. These days I see them or their reps everyday. The reason. . . Elections are near.

They come in the afternoon.. disturb my weekend siesta. “Vote for progess” they say. “Our candidate will yensure that you will see laaat of pragress”…the candidate himself (if hes around) is standing around like a blushing bride.

Narrating his experience, my friend told me that one of the candidates’ actually expected to be invited indoors. One of his sidekicks asked him “Yen saar.. sahebraNNa mane valoge invite madolva?” (“What sir arent you going to invite the sahib in”). To which his answer was “Illa” (“No”).

Unfortunately I havent seen the Rs. 2 rice yet. Nor have I been offered the television.

Promises Promises !!!!
