Jim Carrey commented on Tiger Woods’ countless affairs that came out of the woodwork – he noted that if a husband is philandering to the extent that Tiger Woods appeared to have been, his wife would have had some sort an inkling.
By the same logic, if there was a scam of such a huge scale, it seems impossible that the Delhi Government and the Sports Ministry had no clue about it. And the mild response of our Government in power – I don’t know, it reminds me of my Mom trying to protect my younger brother from getting a completely justified bashing from me or a punishment from my Papa. Its as though they are saying “Shush, stop making such a racket. Kalmadi has been a bad naughty boy and will get his ears boxed soon. Let the games happen, baad mein sab kuch karenge”. My question ……. Kya karogey Bhai? Are you hoping that the furore dies down, we have a rocking Games based on total jugaad and the public forgets?
Ma always said ” Shant ho jao, varna Papa ko yaad aa jayega aur bahut marenge”. I see the same look in our netas eyes. Puhlees, we have about sau crore abaaadi, and there is no one suitable who can take over from Mr. Kalmadi and company? Don’t insult our intelligence.
I am peeved! Its my money ….. makes me feel like not paying taxes at all. Godji, I am sorry, but I feel like the CWG has not only made a chu@#$ya of the Government (i.e. unless the Govt netas also had a cut in the booty) but also of us, the tax paying public. Or – given the stupid way they forged documents and drew out contracts, they actually thought they were dealing with a nation of morons. Such amateurs! No wonder they got caught. I do wonder how the smarter and more intelligent folk who have their hands in the galla(till) go about it! These morons diverted 750,000 crores, how much money must the uncaught intelligent ones have diverted. Where have they diverted it to? Can I go with a bag there and collect some?
Sorry Godji, I will do penance for this immoral thought, but it is sooooo tempting
Its okay to be moralistic and bemoan our national pride being flushed down the gutter. I think all of us do feel – in our own way – our collective shame.
But (since I have an evil but practical mind) I do wish I had not educated my sons for the careers they have chosen …. I wish I had sent them into sarkari naukris, in positions where they had the opportunity to make such money. Then I would have been justified in saying CWG ka matlab hai : Crores in my Wallet and Ghar
