enter There is so much flux in the politics of Tamilnadu that even the birds are confused on which tree to sit. The owl or the wise man, our dear Governor Saab evaporated into thin air to change his AABO-HAWA. I suppose he was in the other tree which he is supposed to look after. I was wondering, the whole world made a mockery of one Ex- Governor who was almost guillotined for not acknowledging his wife besides his illicit affairs. Here we have a state of Tamilnadu, where the state of affairs is changing by the minute and the person responsible to give decisions is shuttling from one wife to other, sorry one state to the other. He has all his thinking hats on and is in deep contemplation to be or not to be. He has all the time in the world to be politically correct for this decision. Just one suggestion Governor saab, call Ornob. Within 30 seconds he will give you twenty pages on how to resolve this crisis and within the next 30 seconds he will give you at least eight suggestions what to do, how to do, when to do, with what to do and what have you, as also give you his recommended solution. If you take it, you will be spared his wrath, if you leave it; the other channels will tear you apart. Try it once; I can assure you all the intellectuals you may have engaged till date would not be able to give you the “Kunji” to this crisis like Ornob will.

Actually, I am not enjoying this vegetarian menu, as too much of “paneer-saalan” is being dished out which has upset my tummy. Also we have “Chinamma” and thank God she is not “Rajamma”, otherwise the second dish too would have been full of kidney beans. The reality is that our “bhejas” are getting fried in the sambar which is cooking in the state. Speculations are on; the satta bazaar is booming, rumour and gossip is the only news per se. The irony is that the broth which is cooking is a total Khichri of kinds which happens to be again vegetarian. People are being sent to beach resorts to acquire new tastes I suppose; people are visiting graves to get some divine wisdom which amma has taken along. Long lists of MPs is being shown to the grave or was it a menu card of the beach resort just to assure amma that nobody is going hungry. Total drama and I am fully fed up with this distasteful concoction being served.

I googled the responsibilities of the Governor and was surprised to learn that he can take as much time as he desires besides use his own discretionary powers to finally arrive at a decision. He can consult tom, dick , harry, mary, santa, banta, bhoop singh, the halwai, nayi, dhobi, mochi, teli and in between apply his brains. Well, then the cows can come home, and the roosters too can roost. He may also keep floating between Bombay and Chennai to attend convocations in garb of his constitutional responsibilities. Well, isn’t it shocking that in this huge country of mere pyare 130 crore deshwasi, we can’t find a governor for every state? Don’t we have enough capable people to hold this post? Imagine the amount of TA-DA the government must be paying to the “Kafila” of Governor who moves with his Lashkar of the Pandayan/Chola dynasty from Chennai to Bombay and back. Doesn’t the government see this wasteful expenditure, or is this expenditure justified in the name of politics?

Since 22 September last year Tamilnadu virtually has been headless so to say after the hospitalisation of JJL. Ops (operations) have been stalled, not the ops which the faujis know but O- Paneer Selvam. Now with the Governor shuttling up and down it appears to be bodiless. If the MLAs are horse traded then I am sure it will become soulless too. When this Jallikattu fever spread and people congregated at marina beach, did the state stop, no. Today, the state is kind of governor less, has the state machinery stopped, no. Aides, maids and other sundry are staking their claim to make the government, will the state stop, no. Then, who runs any state is the basic question? How does any state administer itself without a proper CM, caretaker or no caretaker is a separate issue? Madam J was minister in charge for public affairs, IAS, IPS, IFS, General Administration, Revenue, Police, Home and Finance. My goodness Lord, do I presume that all these offices have shut shop in the state since then. Everyone is having a ball it seems as I perceive it.

I also want to understand how a grave gives those supernatural powers to enlighten our learned netas overnight. I too should look for one to sort this country out once for all. How does showing the names of MLAs to a grave endorse their loyalty, or was it the dry cleaning list of ammas saris which tumbled down from a hidden cupboard. I hope it wasn’t the jewellery list either which “chin-ups” would be purchasing shortly if she is allowed to form a government or acquitted of all her sins in the disproportionate assets case. I should keep guessing.

Be that as it may. This country is too big to be actually governed the way I see it. This country has the capability to run itself. A state is in a state of political paralysis as such. The state assembly is in a limbo, MLAs have been whisked away I suppose? All this nonsense which is not making sense to the Governor who may decide to add some wisdom with the collective acumen of the ‘buhdhijeevi” he consults. Sir, just visit Ammas grave today. When the lightning strikes you will see it written on the skies that one drop of rain means this and a heavy downpour will mean that. I hope you will not use any metaphors of umbrellas, raincoats, raining cats and dogs like the ones our PM did in parliament.  Instead use your good offices to sort things out soon. Will someone tell him what I say, or will he think wearing a crash helmet on the issue of Tamilnadu, I wonder!!!!!!!!!!!!
