The sponsors of corruption events are equal partners. A big name must not be a visa or birth right to automatic clean-chit or soft-corners. The two self-declared ruling groups in this country should remind all Indians about British and Portuguese cleverness a few centuries back, barring technological innovations and lifestyle tweaks, times had never changed for better. The intermittent ruling classes who had inherited and learned many tricks are happily experimenting on people at large over the years. Most of the looters have a history which link back to human atrocities even many centuries back – some made heros, some caught abruptly, many stories missing from sponsored and cooked-up text books we were made to learn and believe.
No wonder the looting media with group affiliations are willingly trapped and indulged in the nexus for windfall fruits after elections – from one group or another who are scratching each other’s back in the darks. Of course, like their rich ancestors, the looters will find their places in history books or gadgets of coming centuries, pay and get published. With your own terms and wisdom, find about the Vasco da Gama to Fort William for a refresh. If a baba can dream of thousands of tons of looted (yes, no King laid gold eggs from back!) gold dumped somewhere, why can’t you?
Industrialists, Politicians, Bureaucrats, pro-Market economy pundits are slamming CBI’s FIR against Mr. Birla and clean corrupt-cats in coal loot saying it will scare the industry and harm investor climate. One group bargains for silence while another loots, and vice-versa. Institutions like CBI are there for political arbitration, not for real investigation affecting crores of poor corruption-infected, isn’t it still loud and clear! If it scares the industrialists and sends them a strong message that they cannot loot and siphon off public wealth in the name of doing some development business of scale, it has to be corrected. How will the license for eternal loot get new official renewals otherwise? Change of Governments is merely becoming a farcical spectator sport and media event, to say the least.
Same breed of ruling royals cum emperors keep propping themselves as my baaps and matas with power of looted black-money and public resources, change only sounds like a positive propaganda. The hard-skinned super rich (real election sponsors) who owns huge resources mostly by crooked means, never cared for masses and never will unless terminated or pushed back abruptly one fine day. The affiliated bhaktoists will spread this as an extreme and rare voice. So be it, better than whisper sweetly and loot.
