The ‘New Americans’

There are some who would like to believe that in the new age of a power shift from the Western nations to the East namely India and China, India can claim the mantle of being the ‘new America’.

Though that’s very much in the realm of possibility, being the ‘new America’ is not driving on the right-hand side of the road. Besides the US of A,  162  other countries drive on that side of the road. None of them claim to be the ‘new America’ solely on that basis. In fact, the majority of the world  drives on the right. It is the minority (76) including the UK and India that prefer the left-hand drive—a colonial hangover.

Kindly clean up your doggie-poo when walking your dog. ‘Civil Americans’ are not allowed to do that. They are fined.

Copying Hollywood movie plots in Bollywood, Mollywood and Tollywood does not qualify either.

Butterflies and bees

A little bit of this,

a little bit of that,

a little more of this, a little more of that,

you float like a butterfly

and steal like a bee!

A little bit of this,

a little bit of that,

a little more of this, a little more of that,

you bloat like a balloon,

and puncture like one too!

A little bit of this,

a little bit of that,

a little more of this, a little more of that,

you have no lines or lies to add,

And I have none too!

Have a great day!
