Noise over Nano-II

Miss Mamata was praying, no doubt,
For divine intervention and clout
And asking God's favor,
To grant a face saver,
And stop Tatas from pulling out!

For by pulling the rug from down under
Her feet, they have stolen her thunder.
Now farmers, I believe,
Are wanting her to leave,
And her dharna's* being heralded as blunder!

ExpressIndia 04/09/08:Tide turns in shocked Singur, own supporters tell Mamata to stop. Get the story here


Dharna* = is an Indian practice of exacting compliance with a demand by sitting (and fasting, but not in this case) at the doorstep of the offending party until the demand is granted.

  1. Nano is good but I am thinking of metro traffic conditions in future.
