Cops in UP are looking at alternative professions as well. Two Uttar Pradesh constables and their suspended colleague decided to make some easy pocket money and decamped with an entire ATM machine. Since nobody knows the mind of a criminal better than a policeman, you would expect them to get away, right? Well, they didn’t and were arrested soon after. They have now vowed that they will henceforth be making money like the rest of their colleagues, by taking bribes.
The Amit Shah (Gujarat’s home minister) controversy had kindled a grudging respect for criminals, who are at least honest about who they are and their motives. Sadly, honesty is not a word we associate with most of our wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing netas, who engineer elaborate conspiracies, shamelessly use state machinery to steal and get their adversaries knocked off. And when the law finally catches up with them, they go absconding, throw elaborate tantrums and indulge in a finger pointing spree, blaming everyone from the opposition, to the CBI or even their local dhobi. Shame on them and shame on us for electing such buffoons.
Speaking of blood, Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography “The Tendulkar Opus” will have a limited edition. Strangely the 10 editions of the book priced at a whopping $75,000 each will have an autograph of Tendulkar that will mix his blood with paper pulp and will also feature the batsman’s DNA profile from his saliva. Aikthoo, what a bloody idea!
But this one takes the cake. A state government run health centre in Rajasthan’s Doongri village is an open affair, literally. The patients are forced to stay and get treated under a tree while the fully built up health care centre serves as residential quarters for the Doctor, paramedics and their families. The hospital’s in-charge Dr B L Meena, defended the decision, citing the rising mercury levels that has forced the hospital staff to treat patients outside.
Calling Dr Jyoti and her flower pots please! Madam jee can you please fling your eco friendly missiles from Bihar itself and knock some sense into these apologies of mankind.
