Big Brother learns to tap dance

Outlook magazine reported that the Indian intelligence services are keeping tabs on all kinds of electronic communication: landline calls, cellphone conversations, sms exchanges and chat. 

Big Brother, you've earned yourself a limerick:

It seems our phone lines are tapped
To plug the information gap,
Thousands are employed,
Ministers are overjoyed
Listening to unadulterated crap.

On your phone when you hear strange clicks,
Try some shrewd and canny tricks,
Chant a melodic Italian aria
Praise the Prince and Mama Sonia,
Who knows, you'll be chosen the Prince's sidekick.

Tharoor the demigod

Like a demigod, Tharoor descended from the west,
He superciliously declared he was the best,
He wanted to gain
Loot the IPL gravy train
He's a sleazebag no different from the rest.

The IPL stinks

The IPL stinks of corruption,
Drugs, murder and seduction;
The tournament is a gigantic con
To fill the coffers of mafia dons,
Stay away from this scammers' production.

Tharoor's blonde and the squinting Congress

Tharoor's sleazy indiscretions caused many to mutter
When Kochi scandal erupted, even the mistress was aflutter,
For Sunanda with the blond tint
Made the Congress bosses squint
Tharoor's reckless liaisons dragged his name in the gutter.

Tharoor's slide from grace

With zaftig women, Tharoor loves to frolic,
And suffers from foot-in-mouth disease chronic,
From cattle class tweets
To the Kochi sleaze deceit,
His slide from grace is utterly supersonic.

Shashi Tharoor's a real dandy

Tharoor's a real dandy
Sunanda's his new arm candy
The Congress party isn't pleased
The Kochi franchise stinks of sleaze
Will he resign? It's up to Sonia Gandhi

Inflation and distraction

Eighteen percent food inflation
Should grip our leaders' urgent attention,
But they don't give a damn,
Their concern a mere sham,
Because they've diverted us with cheap titillation.

Chidambaram loves to pontificate

Chidambaram loves to pontificate
Sanctimoniously on matters of state
Under his watch innocent soldiers died,
Their distraught families wept and cried
His cynical ploy to resign just grates.

Sania got engaged to a dolt

Sania got engaged to a dolt,
Fiance Shoaib soon gave her a jolt,
He already had a spouse,
Sania's fans called him a louse,
Their advice: run for cover and swiftly bolt.

On her Majesty's Statue Service

For statues Mayawati decrees a Special Monument Force
A battalion the Governor is loath to endorse
The statues and memorials
Mark her rule dictatorial
In UP, orders flow from only one source.
