The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter. /////////////////// The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away. ///////////////////// Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in the cold. ////////////////////// *Indian Version:** //////////////////// The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and laying up supplies for the winter. ///////////////////// The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away. //////////////// Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. //////////////// NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. ///////////////// The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? ////////////// Arundhat Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.* ///////////////// Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter. //////////////// Mayawati states this as `injustice' done on Minorities. ////////////////// Amnesty International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian Government for not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper. /////////////// The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance) . /////////////// Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for ' Bengal Bandh' in West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry. ////////////// CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and Grasshoppers. /////////////// Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'. /////////////// Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ' Prevention of Terrorism Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the winter. /////////////// Arjun Singh makes 'Special Reservation ' for Grasshoppers in Educational Institutions & in Government Services. //////////// The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, it's home is confiscated by the Government and ///////////// handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV. //////////// Arundhati Roy calls it ' A Triumph of Justice'. /////////////// Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice '. ///////////// CPM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden ' /////////////// Koffi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly. ** //////////// Many years later....** /////////// The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon Valley , 100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere in India , ////////////// AND ////////////// As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the grasshoppers, India is still a developing country. /////////////////// ====================================== ADDED FOR THE SURVIVING SIKHS IN BROKEN EAST PUNJAB WHO LIVE ALONG THE TRADITIIONAL (ISLAMIC) ROUTE OF ALL INVATIONS OF INDIA. /////////////// Now since the grasshoppers believe in reproduction and no education a lot of frustration is built up in them. They give vent to their aggression by cutting up and dividing the country, hoping to exterminate all the ants in their own parts called PAKISTAN. But the result is that they start killing one another while still blaming the ants in South Kashmir for all their misery. /////////////// Now their eyes are set on DELHI with the SIKHS along the way in East Punjab busy doing "akhand paths" to take their minds OFF their past and the FUTURE. THEY ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PUBLIC HOLIDAY WHEN SHRI RAHUL GANDHI (SON OF "BADMU'AASH, GOONDAH, BOFORS CHOR" RAJIV KHAN, LATER ROBERTO ALBERTO GANDHI) ARRIVES AS THE NEXT PRIME MINISTER OF PARTITIONED INDIAN SECULAR STATE. /////////////// This version can be seen by all the SIKH ants now living in ONE FIFTH of the original Punjab that was whole and healthy until 1947. ITS CAPITAL THEN WAS LAHORE, NOT SOME UNION TERRITORY TO BE SHARED (MORE THAN) EQUALLY WITH ANOTHER STATE. //////////////// =======================
