The Karnataka government is being formed. A classical horse race with contenders bidding for the top post. As we can see from the railway bribe scam , this is all business. Given how much bribe I expect to make in the future, how much am I willing to invest today. Whats my payback. A cartoon by Chaitanya Govande.
Lucky, I went to business school , so I fully understand what return on investment and a payback is 🙂 . I was taught be content with a reasonable sharpe ratio (ratio of risk to reward) and other , what now seems to be irrelevant, technical details. However they completely overlooked the business of politics and corruption!! A business where you can potentially multiply your initial investment – “its called the big multiplier”. Also that there is no risk here. It is a risk free investment as long as one is in power. It is shocking to hear that even the raid on the railway officer was leaked by the CBI. There is no accountability and in the present system there is no penalty – “paisa banaye jao, banaye jao”
I will confront my parents this evening. How come you did not give me correct guidance. What was all this “bull shit” about engineering and medicine – how come you did not ask me to go enter politics. I could have had multiple farm houses and a few swiss bank accounts by now.
Oh well, there is still hope. I have two children – my advice to them will be – Don’t waste your time studying , learn how to bully, learn how to lie, then steal money from your dad, and finally from your nation. If you can do that you are well on your way to becoming a politician and having a fruitful career which no career in engineering or medicine can match – Are any other parents listening ??
