Dear Mr. Minister,
I would like to remind you that you have a job to do. The job is running of this country. To run this country you need to be familiar with the citizens of this country. Let me introduce you to the members of the country that you seem to have failed to notice. The same members that pay the taxes that pay you your salary, your phone bill, the salaries of your staff that ensures that you do not have to do any hard work …. which also includes using your brain and your eyes.
It is not difficult. If you switch on your television, you will come face to face with the citizens of the country. Women wearing powder and lipstick, men wearing ties and suits. They live here, work here, have ration cards, voter i.d.s and passports that say that they are citizens of India. There, you did not even have to walk out of your ministerial bangalow that is allotted to you by the Government which is funded by the taxes paid by citizens of India.
Why are you so upset? Is it because people have started asking questions? Simple questions like “Are the politicians doing their job?”, “Why does our tax money not ensure that we are safe?”
Mr. Minister, please don’t be afraid. We were not attacking you or holding an AK47 at your head. We do not have grenades and dont start fires in your homes. Such special treatment is reserved for us, the suit boot walas and lipstick wali citizens of India, who go out for an evening meal with our families, or check into hotels on business trips.
We only use words, and as a politician, you know words dont mean a thing. It is only empty noise.
So relax and continue your merry way.
Next time, I sincerely wish you are in a hotel that is attacked by the true miscreants, the anti nationals. I assure you, I will hold a candle and mourn you.
A powder wali and lipstick wali citizen on India
