As my friend was driving down the highway, just outside of Delhi he found it blocked… he was surrounded by a sea of people and everyone was banging at the window asking for his toolkit. He asked why – they told him that there was a tractor ahead which had a puncture, and they did not know how to change the tires – apparently all the three needed to be changed, as changing one would cause the tractor to stall! He did not panic, but got out of the car, went around to the boot, and got his tool kit, and handed it over. It seemed brand new as it had not been used before!
They grabbed it and left him alone to ponder after the fact.
He had just got into the car, when he found uniformed police banging on his car window, asking for the toolkit. He explained that the people ahead had already taken it away. They said, but you should not have given it – repairing the tractor in the middle of the highway is not the done thing. It's blocking traffic. It's your mistake and you must now bear the consequences! And they took him away. Not heard from him since.
Meanwhile, a bluebird was flying around, dropping in, and dropping on everybody, depending on which side of the fence you sat and did your bird watching…. And one fine day, when the droppings began to really mess up the windowsill and did not care two Coos for calls to stop such activity, or so it was perceived, it was time to put it to sleep.
And so, the twits stopped cooing about Twitter and started cooing about Koo, a yellow bird, of the same species. A bird endorsement was all that the yellow bird needed, and it got it in no small measure, with the who’s who of the Indian pecking order, praising its wings!
The Koo Crux Clan grew in quantum leaps, notwithstanding the Chinese whispers about a Chinese Investor who promised to exit asap! Talks are ongoing and disengagement can be expected soon!
The reason why the bluebird was dumped for the yellow it seemed, was because it was fuelling a fire that had started burning on its own. But then, the bluebird had been doing that for a long time all around the world, and it always knew that it had to fly in the cage in which it found itself. But with the fuel prices rising so rapidly, fuelling the fire was not an option it should have exercised and made its cage that much smaller!
Be that as it may, the tractors and the pumps are already feeling the effect of the MSP of Diesel. Soon they may stop working, leaving us without nutrition and power – both literally and figuratively! But then, until now, the slogan was reliance; now it’s self-reliance and the addition of a prefix can make a sea of the difference! Just imagine – Mr. Twitter and Dr. Koo!
