Around 57,577 readers, owners of exactly 400 acres of
bog blog have written in, clamoring for a post, claiming that they would otherwise stop even flies from entering the Tata Motors plant in Singur. At present, they have been environmentally scrupulous, and have a meticulous plan in place that will ensure that stray dogs and greedy cows will be the only life forms allowed in the plant. Experts predict a similar fauna preponderance in the rest of West Bengal.
Anyways, I am a sucker for the two principles inherent in the ongoing agitation in Singur. One is the principle of the Mother Earth (Mamata), as in “West Bengal’s industrialisation drive will soon be swallowed by Mother Earth”. The other is the uniquely bovine, I mean non-violent, way of ventilating one’s grievances: a principle known as Modern Gandhism, another form of Buddha-ism. In Red Bengal, the Mother of All Nonsense (MAN) is known as Mamata Gandhi, because of her non-coercive nature.
I had originally started this post to put in a quick fix of pics from Sri Lanka you may enjoy, so here they are.
