It all started with Jayalalitha promising free laptops to students of Tamil Nadu , if they would vote her to power
Now she is busy distributing a million laptops to students – every year
For politicians all over India , this was an eye-opener !
They were quick to realize that it was no more ,
- Roti , Kapada , Makan
- Sadak , Pani , Bijlee
To win elections , they must promise ,
- Tablets and Laptops
Next to adopt this new-age mantra , were
- Akhilesh Yadav ( Uttar Pradesh )
- Prakash Singh Badal ( Punjab )
Lo and Behold !
They too got elected to power !
Only yesterday, Rajasthan Chief Minister Gehlot came out with a promise to distribute free laptops to all students passing 10th or 12th standard
And believe me , in a matter of weeks , Modi ( Gujarat ) and Gowda / Yeddy ( Karnataka ) will make similar announcements
Not to be left out , expect Rahul Gandhi to promise , to every single Indian voter ( approx 400 millions ),
· a Laptop and a Tablet and a Smart phone
if voted to power in 2014 national elections
And, all imported from EuroZone !
Soon India will become the most YouTube-savvy nation in the world !
What does it matter that , due to mal-nutrition , some 2,348 children die in India , every day !
