Oh yeah.
Oh Canada

I'd like to propose this for either our new flag or crest or money.

Rs 1.2 lakh crore on securing food for one’s citizens amounts to only 1.2 percent of the country’s GDP. How can one grudge that when one compares this with other subsidies?
Development economist Reetika Khera, for instance, points out that tax exemptions given to Indian industry in 2012-13 alone amounts to a whopping Rs 5 trillion. India’s fuel subsidy — much of which is enjoyed by the rich — is approximately Rs 1.6 lakh crore. Tax breaks given to the gold and diamond industry in the last year is Rs 60,000 crore, nearly 20 percent of the revenue forgone. (For perspective: this industry employs 1.8 million people, which is less than 1 percent of the Indian workforce. The Food Bill would benefit 67 percent of the population at merely an additional cost of Rs 30,000 crore. ) The list could go on. The point is, shaving just a little from all this would help balance the books.
Or reverse the gaze. Examine the scams: just the irrigation scam in Maharashtra is worth Rs 70,000 crore. Tax evasions from private mining companies would cross many trillion. Why not urge government to fix this? Why is it that the market can withstand this waste with stoicism, but it panics at the prospect of providing food?

When a guitar is more than a guitar.

Damn Nation

a cougar can’t erase tracks in the snow
here, assumptions are the death of you

a conversation in Fort Cochin turns nasty
this scarred century is up for grabs

what can we expect of such large ears
newsprint to pixels, feast of disciples

erect a memorial, a shrine, to nothing
commemorate the day of your birth

what sacred trust, your beating heart
it comes to that, sorry, damnation
