1114 : Register here for daily dose of irony

Spousey and I were at the registrar office yesterday (where they register land properties). It took us 4 hrs to do essentially what was a 7 minute procedure. This despite of paying the mandatory “large sum” paid to a fat agent for “greasing”. If we had not paid that, we would have never gotten to “owning that property in government” records ever.

Brings me back to my favorite question – I pay taxes, am as honest as jackfruit (the fruit stinks, and is thorny – you only touch it – if you really like it….thats honesty right??), never do anything intentionally immoral or unethical and yet – my own country treats me like a scumbag.

Everyone knows the “registrar” office is full of leeches – and yet we cannot ever influence a change in any realistic way. We have to grin, grease, pay and bear. Open Secrets…..yet we live with these tarts.

The country is dying, long live the nation.

All the thinking minds (who are seriously capable to bring a change) are with MNCs or flying abroad with fat paychecks...All it takes for badness to win is for Good ppl to do nothing..

I am one of your fat guys with a (not so fat) pay check and working for a so so mnc organization. The baddies won because me is so lazy...I kind of agree with that :-) but then I would rather change the world at my work, than at the "registrar" office.
