    Ant & Grasshopper

    OLD VERSION.....
    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, the ant is warm and well fed. The

    grasshopper has no food or shelter so he dies out in

    the cold.

    MODERN VERSION

    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, the shivering grasshopper calls

    a press conference and demands to know why the ant

    should be allowed to be warm and well fed while

    others are cold and starving.

    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 Ban ki Moon, the

    eighth Secretary General of the UN, criticizes 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 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 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

    winter.

    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.

    Arundhati Roy calls it "a triumph of

    justice". Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice'. CPM

    calls it the 'revolutionary resurgence of the

    downtrodden'

    Ban ki Moon invites the grasshopper to

    address the UN General Assembly

    Many years later...

    The ant has since migrated to the US and

    set up a multi billion dollar company in silicon

    valley . 1000's of grasshoppers die of starvation

    in India.......
