Dial R..... to be routed

Post the 2013 Delhi Assembly elections,the Congress party headquarters on 24 Akbar Road in the capital is abuzz with an army of spring cleaners. The con-men (read congress men for short) were literally swept away by a trendy new broom. All old school cleaners donning 'mango people' brooms have been evicted from the visual bubble of the party office. The new mantra for victory is 'to clean up by connecting to the grass root.' 

It is precisely for this obnoxious reason, that palm shaped vacuum cleaners are replacing wiry, noisy old brooms. At least, the cord connects someplace, lest the grass root.  
To state the obvious, one was witness to wired cleaners of different colours,textures and sizes making their way into the cosy comfort cushion laden chambers of their leaders. After all, leaders who profess about the escape velocity of planet Jupiter for the common man, do need extra terrestrial spring cleaning to connect to the grass root. Blessed we are,how earthly are our leaders ? When in dire straits, dial be routed.

Jest-ice AK Ganguly

 A hymn on the gavel that lowered the bar
T'was assumed....

A vile'd lord of the law
decided to bear his unclean claw
Summoning an unsuspecting  intern
To make merry in a tavern
the man began to paw

The intern let out a wail
the judge tucked in his tail
The court managed to frown
was it enough to pull him down?
