    [FONT=&quot]The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
    house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the
    ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away. Come winter, [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    the
    shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why
    [/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    the
    ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and
    starving.
    [/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper
    next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled
    with food. The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be
    that this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

    Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house. Medha
    Patkar goes on a fast along with other grasshoppers demanding that
    grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter. Amnesty
    International and Koffi Annan criticize the Indian Government for not
    upholding the fundamental rights of the grasshopper. The Internet is
    flooded with online petitions seeking support to the grasshopper (many
    promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt support as against the

    [/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    wrath of God for non-compliance). Opposition MP's stage a walkout.Left
    parties call for "Bharat Bandh" in West Bengal and Kerala demanding a
    Judicial Enquiry.CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants
    from working hard in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty
    among ants and grasshoppers.

    Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    Railway
    Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.
    Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the Prevention of Terrorism

    Against
    Grasshoppers Act [POTAGA]", with effect from the beginning of the

    Arjun Singh makes Special Reservation for Grass Hopper in educational[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    Insititutions & in Govt Services.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    The ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and, having nothing
    left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the
    Government and handed over to the grasshopper in a ceremony covered by
    NDTV.
    [/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    Arundhati Roy calls it "a triumph of justice". Lalu calls it
    'Socialistic
    Justice'. CPM calls it the 'revolutionary resurgence of the downtrodden'
    [/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Koffi Annan invites the grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    Excellent Satire. The true nature of country. Hope we can bring about a change. Or will the politicians let it happen?
