There is currently talk of cutting defense budget by Shri Chidambaram to control deficit. Actually he says this will affect defense prepardness but still plans to go ahead. As Shri Gopi Malliwal tweeted Chidambaram was the Finance Minister when the Sixth Pay Commission recommendation was accepted. He was also part of the MGNREGA Scheme that has fueled inflation. I am reminded of another politically incorrect joke when i read these two together.
A person who lived in the tenth floor of an Apartment complex walked down all the way when he realised he had forgotten his kerchief, mobile and watch. He was living in a power starved state so he could not take the elevator back. He fortunately saw his wife in the balcony and shouted to her to throw them down. First the wife threw the phone. He couldn’t catch it. Obviously it broke. Next the wife threw the watch. Same fate. Now when the wife started to throw the Kerchief our Hero woke up and said “Don’t throw it. I will walk up.”
