Cheerful Monk had this post on the US Government’s shut down.
I had commented there as follows:
“Our Central Government, the equivalent of your Federal Government has been shut down for the past four years. We have managed very well without their governance! We call it Ram Bharosey meaning Trust in Lord Ram.”
We have some intrepid souls in India who express our ideas much better graphically.
Finally, the electorate of three States and one Union Territory decided that they had had enough of a non performing political party and showed them the door. The most significant send off was in the Union Territory Delhi where the showing was pathetic. The saving grace was one state in our North East, which returned the Indian National Congress to power but that went almost unnoticed.
Now our own GOP has finally started to be decisive in its own way by testing the waters as it were by indirectly announcing that one more Nehru/Gandhi scion will lead the party in the general elections next year.
I have no doubts in my mind at least, and I am joined by many other well wishing Indians that the INC will finally shut down after that.

well. i guess it is good to know we’re not alone in our idiocy.
i am so totally sick of the people in that glittering city on the hill that i cannot even put it into words. they have always been hard to stomach. but now they are becoming so . . . well. ladies don’t say that aloud.
i despair. so like an ostrich. i try not to think about them. i just live my simple happy little life. there are millions of us now. surely my staying out of the fray makes not ONE iota of difference. and i care not whether it does. or doesn’t.
No, you are not alone at all. All people everywhere are.
You did well to invite me to drop by today: so, the INC is about to fall once and for all? Very interesting news indeed.
So, the INC is compared to the GOP because of the shutdown?
“well wishing Indians that the INC will finally shut down after that” LOL LOL perfect statement.
Now, isn’t it a bit desperate for the INC to pick a Nehru/Ghandi as a candidate? It’s like wanting to bring back past glories, when the world has changed, when Indians have changed…

INC is nothing without the family to head them. If the mother and son combo disappears, that party will be left with all generals and no soldiers and they will shoot each other off till no one is left standing. I certainly hope that that happens soon.
I see what you mean. So the family is the head of the snake (with no other head to grow in their place)?

Thank you CM. We have some remarkable political cartoonists and in all fairness, our Prime Minister is eminently cartoongenic.
