Once upon a time… time slowed down. 15 minutes passed liked 3 hours. Obviously it’s not possible in the real world. Last night I was so tired that as soon as I fell on my bed, I started dreaming immediately. Meaningless office work, meetings, tiring work out in Gym, studies, friends and reading so many scams in newspaper daily – sucks out the entire calories and proteins and energy out of my body. Reading about scams daily has become a hell lot of task. I wish I was Ravaan with 10 heads to remember about all the scams and discuss them at the same time! It is been raining scams these days. It is winter, best season to be with your loved one, get warm inside and have warm drinks to sip outside. Somehow, raining scams have just ruined the daily pleasure of winter mornings.
Coming back to the point, I fell on my bed and I started to dream. In my dream, my differently wired (nerd) brain personified Scam as my friend and somehow we both are sitting on dock and talking. I remember certain parts of my dream and I am going to share it with you. Remember, my friend takes the form of the accused in the dream whenever we are talking about a certain scam.
(…on the docks in Bombay…in the dream)
Scam – I think this time I got lucky after the sale of 3G spectrum. Till now no scam came out on 3G sale.
Me – well, Raja, they all are busy with the 2G scam. They will come to 3G when 4G will be up for bidding.
Scam – Yeah, I guess so. CBI raided my house after I hid everything. I got like two weeks secret notice to move out everything. How nicely we make the public stupid!
Me – Even if you don’t, public doesn’t care much. Corruption should be there, as long as it benefits others also. But you and Kalmadi are more Naga (shameless) than Naga Babas of Kumbh mela!
Scam – (now Scam became Kalmadi) But CWG was a success. I made it happen. So what if the budget crossed Rs. 80000 crore Govt. figure. Even I am not sure how much more the actual scam was, but who cares! It was a huge success.
Me – it was a success because of the athletes. It could have been the same success if it was done within 20% of the cost! But what did you do with so much money? I am sure it’s not lying idle in your Swiss Bank account.
Scam – Of course not! Have you not seen Sensex rising and being steady at 19k these days? All my money, and every other politician’s money is coming through the havala route and is invested in Sensex as FII. Our country runs on two economies. Black economy is bigger than White economy now.
Me – Hmm.. that makes sense. So that’s the reason of free trade between India and Mauritius. These days even Land is Hot Property. Didn’t you invest in Land?
Scam – I have in… (I don’t remember what he said. It’s a dream so some parts are forgotten)
Me – So what if like Adarsh scam, your investments in flats and lands come out? But you have already resigned so it actually doesn’t matter. Maybe Chavan should have been more cautious.
Scam – (now Ashok Chavan) It’s politics my son. People think that removing me from the post CM is justice done. But actually it was done to stop the wagging tongues! Tell me has the real purpose of Adarsh Flat been served? My relatives still own the flats!
Me – Yes that’s true! I so wish I was in Politics. Atleast I would some good to the country along with being corrupt!! You are a bunch of useless corrupt officials. Nothing works without corruption. Corruption without the public benefit is stupidity. God knows how you assholes reach such high posts! But isn’t that the way of the world! It’s not the Ramayana or Mahabharata era where people will actually care for Dharma and Adharma.
Scam – Be grateful you are not into politics. Can you become shameless? Do you have that guts?
Me – I guess if one has to move higher very fast, either one has to be lucky or one has to be shameless!
Scam – (now Yana Gupta, in hot black dress) You are right! See sweetheart (I m seeing! :p) I didn’t have any media attention, so I had to be shameless!
Me – Okay. But at least now you could have worn it! And how can you miss it? Forget about underwear, you should be wearing pants because your dress is too short!
Scam – Did anybody else question that? Everybody is talking about my boldness. You know, in this world, if you make people think what you want them to think, you will have it your way!
Me – that’s damn true! If I could do that, I would have a girlfriend by now. The problem is the ones I liked, they never liked me back, and those who liked me I couldn’t like them the same way! And when feelings matched, I was too rigid to get into one! I wanted to enjoy the freedom I had!
Scam – Love is so pure that it corrupts the mind, sweetheart! But you should love once and love with your 100%. It is the best feeling in the world.
Me – I know it is the best feeling. I will when I am sure I am ready for it. Is it always the best girl one waits for? How can there be so many best girls if every guy is waiting for one?
Scam – May be you are thinking too much! Every girl is best in her own way, like every guy is! Use your heart than your brains in the matters of love. Heart loves, brain lusts!
Me – So all these scams happen because of Lust! Now I got my answers. Whether its lust for women or for money or for fame or for power, lust is the cause for all Scams!! I am so intelligent!
Scam – Isn’t it weird that a little rearrangement with the letters, lust becomes slut! So every scammer is a slut.
Me – (furious) I hate that word. How many times I have told you never use it. Anyway, why bollywood is not coming up with good movies? Is there a scam cooking up in there as well?
My eyes opened. I was delirious. What happened? Oh, the cell was vibrating. Four messages received from a “friend”. I read the messages, thought about my third last question to Yana Gupta, shook my head, “love is so pure that it corrupts the brain”. No I can’t now, right now future is more important, career first, then everything else, but what if I lose the best one, and career can be achieved along with a soul mate, no but have i not sacrificed chances in past??? , I have sacrificed chances because I wanted to enjoy college life, being friends allows freedom, but seeing that ‘friend’ with other guys can be such a bad feeling, no, some Jhol (scam) has to be done, I have made people think as I have wanted them to, I have had it my way, I will have it my way, I will be patient but not dormant, but what if patience rusts the ‘feelings’, damn, its getting complicated, leave it bro, lets sleep! At least love should be scam free, rest at every place I have done jhols (scams). Lol!
‘Set the person free, if he/she comes to you they were always yours, if he/doesn’t come to you, they were never yours!’ Who said this? I don’t know, but it’s too complicated to follow.
Amazing how brain solves your mysteries in dreams. Whether is mathematics or biology, every dream solves certain complications, that’s how the brain works. Hope you like my conversation with Scam. Waiting for your comments!
