Tharoor, Cattle and The Holy Cow!

"Absolutely, in cattle class out of solidarity with all our holy cows." This tweet on Twitter by Shashi Tharoor about having to travel in Economy Class as part of the austerity drive launched by the Congress party has got him into trouble with the High Command. Poor guy was better off in the UN, it seems.

The tweet and the Congress party's sharp reaction to it have resulted in this quick poem from my pen:

There was this smart guy called Tharoor
Who came to India ready to say 'Huzoor'
Not knowing then that for first class
He would soon lose his long held pass

Now little more than chattel
He has to suffer class cattle
And to the wishes of the holy cow
Morning and evening humbly bow

Solilo, Vinod Sharma has the humour the Congress does not have! Liked it!

I also did a post on it with snapshot of the tweets!

Lol! Vinod, your words cut straight to the heart of the matter.

Solilo, Vikas Gupta and Sagarone, in the Congress the Holy Family is holier than the Holy Cow. You don't mess with it. It is worse than blasphemy!
