The Beggar & Election



The heat of election had heated Delhi environment. On the stage the candidate climbed and soon some chamchas covered him with shawls and garlands. And he started sweating among the crowd. A herculean exercise he had to do, to deliver the speech. When it was over he was escorted out.  All the media persons were running to ask him a few very important questions that might decide the fate of Delhi. Crowd disappeared, the media started to disappear. Business was done for the day.

The eye of the reporter was laid on a beggar, who was not among the crowd and he was shivering in the cold of Delhi. He found it oddly interesting and approached the beggar. Now he wanted to interview him. Though the beggar was reluctant at first he agreed to do it for a packet of bidi and a meal.

The summary of the interview was: Nobody cares about the beggars, because they do not cast their vote. He does not have an identity card. He had seen from a distance that, he candidate who gave so promising speech on the stage that dissolved in the air the same moment was covered with shawls even though he wore sweater and jacket. And the beggar was here with minimal clothes and in cold, nobody cared.

And it was broadcasted the very day and all those who were standing to fight for election were alerted and the parties started making strategies to make an impact on people.

The U-turn Ex-CM said that this time if he becomes CM again he will do something for the beggars. This is the strategy of the other two major parties to keep them poor, this is conspiracy. He will pass an amendment in the parliament to protect the rights of the beggars. If the government does not agree, he will put on a muffler and do fasting in the cold of Delhi.

When Ra-fool Gandhi was asked to comment on the issue he said, their party has empowered women and they will empower the beggars this time, so that they can ride horses.

When the NaMo Modi was asked about it his remarks were different. He was a tea seller and became prime minister. So what a beggar can become is unimaginable. He promised to discuss the agenda in ‘Make in India’.


One controversial Pakshi Maharaj who had been continuously in news for his remarks on Hindutva was interviewed regarding the beggar problem,.  He babbled, ‘Begging is tradition of India and beggars should exist. In our history and mythology do not we have such examples? Beggars are the protectors of our traditions. Hence it should continue’
