just read and think

 



The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer



building its house and



laying up supplies for the winter.



 



The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs &



dances & plays the



summer away.



 



Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper



has no food or



shelter so he dies out in the cold..



 



 



 



*Indian Version:**



 



 



 



The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer



building its house and



laying up supplies for the winter.



 



The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs



& dances & plays the



summer away.



 



Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press



conference and



demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm



and well fed while



others are cold and starving.



 



NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering



Grasshopper next



to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table



filled with food.



 



The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be



that this poor



Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?



 



Arundhat Roy stages a demonstration in front of the



Ant's house.*



 



Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers



demanding that



Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter.



 



Mayawati states this as `injustice' done on Minorities.



 



Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian



Government for



not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.



 



The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking



support to the



Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace



for prompt support



as against the wrath of God for non-compliance) .



 



Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for



' Bengal Bandh' in West



Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.



 



CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from



working hard in



the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among



Ants and



Grasshoppers.



 



Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all



Indian Railway



Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.



 



Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ' Prevention



of Terrorism Against



Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the



beginning of the winter.



 



Arjun Singh makes 'Special Reservation ' for



Grasshoppers in Educational



Institutions & in Government Services.



 



The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and



having nothing left



to pay his retroactive taxes, it's home is confiscated



by the Government and



 



handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by



NDTV.



 



Arundhati Roy calls it ' A Triumph of Justice'.



 



Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice '.



 



CPM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the



Downtrodden '



 



Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN



General Assembly. **



 



Many years later....**



 



The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a



multi-billion dollar



company in Silicon Valley , 100s of Grasshoppers still die



of starvation



despite reservation somewhere in India ,



 



AND



 



As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding



the grasshoppers,



India is still a developing country.
