Moving the Inflation Goalpost

For the economy began to leaven, 
"Inflation at year end, 
Six percent," we contend, 
Did they mean December 2011.

The Onionee

At ninety rupees onions are dear
Rupee's worthless, Reserve Bank fears 
"The onion you see 
Is the new currency,"  
Says the Bank's Governor in tears.

Oligarchs Unlimited

India's ravaged by oligarchs, 
Politicos, corporations and sharks,
The country's being plundered,
But the media won't thunder,  
Political sponsors ensure it won't bark.

All India Radia


Lobbyist Radia's brief it was said,
Was to appoint Raja the Telecom head,
Oil, land, and gas,
Resources looted en masse,
By whom is this banana republic led?

The Black Gown and the Pigeon

Radia's black gown it seems was chic,
When phone calls to Tata were leaked, 
Her phone was encrypted,
But calls were transcripted,
Niira, please deploy a pigeon that speaks.
