Mr Minister... Are we Indians cattles?

"Tell us Minister, next time you travel to Kerala, will it be cattle class?"

"absolutely, in cattle class out of solidarity with all our holy cows!

Doesn't it sound like a conversation from the British Raj era?

Oh! How I prayed it would be. But no. It is from the present day.

Thanks a ton Shilpa! You made my day.

A world of thanks to you for having bestowed the grand Superior Scribbler Award upon me.

You have made my day, categorically, Buddy! I'm deeply honoured !!!

Special thanks to you once again for, in fact, this gorgeous gesture of yours is going to make ANDAMAN & NICOBAR THE HISTORIC INDIAN CORAL ISLANDS heard more and reach more people, networks and circles and that's what my primary objective behind blogging for my peerless domicile is.

Cheers and have a nice day, Buddy!!!

No need to thank me buddy. I have been following your blog for some time now. I have seen how much effort you have put into the blog. It shows your true love for the place.

Besides, I would love to come to Andaman one day and I am looking out for a couch to crash on. Hope you will lend me one for this ;).

Not only did the minister reply to the journalist query, actually world over the Economy class is called 'cattle class' they way they transport people in cramped space ..BTW this one tweet of Shashi Tharoor increased his 'followers' by thousands so its a lot to do with number games as well I guess...

The sad part is that the journalist today has taken a "holier than thou" stance. He has blogged with all and more of this issue and condemned Tharoor for using his own words. Media thy name is hypocrisy.
