Scam, scam everywhere: the line is blurring

“Terrorism” defined the year 2008,”Recession” defined the year 2009. I guess 2010 will have “SCAM” as the word which defines it. Scam(noun):swindle, defraud as the oxford dictionary puts it is something that has dominated our national affairs this year… it has been happening everywhere all around you, every gully, every corner is the home to some scam or another…

A great man probably in power and scamming around once said “Power is corrupting”, then came the grandpa of Spiderman with the line “with great power comes great responsibility”… but he was too late by then or most probably too feeble to make his voice heard as power got into the heads of the powerful and started doing the “thandav” dance…

I don’t know if it is the Indian media turning vigilante in the last few years or is it just the coincidence but scams are dominating everything nowadays…

Politics, a field which turns Arnab Goswami and Rajdeep Sardesai horny has thrown up a hell lot of scams, the ADARSH gate scam being the latest...first it was the former Maharashtra cm Ashok Chavan who was in the line of fire… next came up the head of opposition GADKARI with a proxy AJAY SANCHETI, looking at this man’s personality, one would expect a food scam but in turn that was done by SHARAD PAWAR… who will ever forget the A.RAJA 2G scam I guess he is one person who can jolly well utter filmy dialogues like ”koi mera baal baaka nahi kar saktha”, “catch me if u can Hanratty”... and still go unaccounted for…

The outcome of such scams are more scamacious (I came up with this word) decisions and bull shit commissions…seriously speaking these commissions live longer than Albus Dumbledore and still end up not saving Harry...the ruling party wants to take a moral high ground and blame the opposition and the opposition too wants to do the same… the great words of Ted Kennedy “what can u do for your country” has been lost in this maze of scam..

Entertainment has been scamming our senses from the time when queen Ekta decided to take up television and Simon Cowell inspired INDIAN reality

Rakhi Sawant delivering justice—Made in china fake piece doing it is so frigging TRP attractive eh? Jeejus save me !!

A leading music channel, calling itself “THE MUSIC CHANNEL OF INDIA” showing 12 hours of reality shows ,11 hours and 23 minutes of ads and 37 minutes of music is itself a scam…

Kbc showing life stories of contestants with such sentimental music that even Homer Simpsons life would look sad and unworthy…How the hell does everyone in this cosmos have such a sentimental story associated with them??

Some shows need not even be described just the name would be sufficient, BIG BOSS 4(isn’t Salman’s voice reason enough), These stand-up comedy shows having judges laughing their ass off for redundant Rajnikanth jokes( I don’t understand why that woman is trying to emulate NAVJOT SINGH SIDHU, her laugh has already broken a few glasses in my house) and yes Akshay Kumar’s laugh has made every dish on master chef bitter for me…

Coming to the field of Sports , as you see this field I wonder how many people might have already thought of Suresh “sir u made lakhs” Kalmadi… Tissues worth tens of thousands … Treadmills worth lakhs of rupees… He has surely given me the confidence that we are not a developing country struggling to feed the deserving…. we are frigging overdeveloped and rich….

Some may argue this scam should come under politics and not sports… don’t you see it, sports is politics in our country… I am at least happy that our sportsmen continue to inspire us by doing nothing wrong…

The Great IPL tamasha turned fugly with Lalit ”even god maybe wrong but I am not” Modi scamming and conning big time and with him ready to flee the country to some other land, this case may die a natural death as there are too many buried skeletons which could be unearthed…

I hope I am wrong, maybe this whole blog post is a scam against scam, but as we people laze around ignoring these scams like spams , Arnab keeps masturbating looking at the fax papers of scams and Rajdeep keeps assaulting our senses …. These scams have slowly turned into the acceptable reality of life…

  3. The fact remains that we, the common people, are the ones who made it possible for these scamsters to reach their zenith of corruption. Had we been more active in democracy and took our share of responsibility, things could have been different today. Its still not late, though.

    Good read.
