Do you think we are still developing contry??

An Old Story:

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? 

Arundhati Roy
 stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house. 

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.

  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, 

As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the grasshoppers,
India is still a developing country…!!!
