You've been served.

I love fables and analogies.

And I especially love the way our society has this love hate relationship with its politicians.
First we vote these scum into office with such zest and zeal.
Then we fight against them if they don't listen to us. We hurl abuses, slogans and flags at them.
And then the 'poly-ticks' will fight us because we hurled abuses against them. Why, you ask? Well, we have insulted them. Their moral compass has been outraged.

Naturally during months and more importantly weeks of intense civil arousal, millions of Indians have called our politicians many choice titles.
We (including Moi) have called them many juicy terms and rightfully so. They deserved every bit of them. And maybe more.
But ofcourse like when you are fishing, you can't catch all the fish in the pond. You only catch the biggest one (or the unluckiest)

The very dignified poly-ticks in our government after having been verbally molested, are now indignant. They want action against Om Puri and Kiran Bedi.
While Om Puri has rendered a shameless apology, Kiran Bedi has stood her ground.

Having served the two 'priviledge notice' which accuses them of having insulted the government,
So what do we serve them for the way they have sullied our name? For having stolen our wealth? For behaving like rats and common mice in parliament?
Is not the law that they apply on us also applicable to them?
Which brings me to why we should not be able to recall the same people we vote for? 
Maybe we need to emulate the Nepali Parliament!
Bring 'em on.
Serve me too! I dare you, Mr Poly-tick-sion.
