Mai Kahaan hoon ?

Ordinary mortals struggling with paperwork , forms and permissions at least know why they are doing what they are doing.

Udai Narain Chowdhary, speaker of the Bihar Assembly, went as a delegate on the Parliament Speaker's trip to Swaziland, Africa. Parliament Speaker, Meira Kumar, daughter of late Jagjivan Ram, is a former diplomat , and carried with her a photo of her father with the Swaziland King's grandfather, as a gesture of respect and friendship.

Chowdhary was alarmed to notice that he had arrived in Swaziland instead of Switzerland, which is why he had used his clout to find a place on the trip, in the first place. Meira Kumar told him this was the Switzerland of Africa...

Do politicians look at what they sign ? Visa forms ? Laws ? Cheques ?

A schoolboy would have been failed for this.....

I was going over the list of ministers who have been abroad between last session of Parliament till date.
The list is too long too be printed, but,as the temp.in India starts to go up, these people look for holidays and to find an excuse is not difficult as the Babu who fixes the trip is a part of the party too.
It is you, me who are paying for the holidays so it does not matter as to what the destination is.
