Who’s the VIP?

Us or Them?

I think India needs to seriously reexamine the concept of VIPs. Currently, a politician, a government official or a Bollywood celebrity are the VIPs. They get away with murder, they get away with scams, they make obscene amounts of money and yet want all the freebies and priveleges. On the toll roads they want an exemption, at the airport they want the parking closest to the terminal and of course they don’t want to pay!

The weird part is they make their pots of money from the tax that you and I pay. Yet when it comes to the priveleges, all we get is barked at by the police, the security forces and the rest of them, all of whom are paid only because we paid tax!

You tell me who’s the VIP?

Cheers…Kishore

Well put, Kishore bhaiya. Our’s is a Democracy of the VIPs for the VIPs and by the VIPs…….And that’s the reason why we lag behind in development so much. All policies/decisions are indirectly or directly beneficial to them. The word India, Indians or to do something for their fellow Indians mean nothing to them….I guess we are not their fellows….

As the old joke goes, VIP = Very Idiotic Person.

A more important question: What’s with the “I am attending foss.in” badge?

The only way things can improve is if and when there is a large scale, middle-class led tax revolt.
