A Womens Bank – This has got to be one of the weirdest statements I have heard in a while. You have special compartments for women in trains and buses – that’s fine and understandable. But I am not sure I understand the need to a specific women’s bank – what does it mean ? Are the employees going to be only women? Will the account holders only be women ? Can checks be only issued to Women and cashed only by Women ? What bizarre concept is this.
Political mileage from womens bank & Lalu Prasad Yadav
This has again just got to be a meaningless political statement – “WE WILL MAKE A BANK FOR WOMEN” – a statement to get political mileage and nothing else. Remember Chaudhari Devi Lal – he made made a comment that Hydro-Electric power takes electricity away from the water – thereby depriving the farmers who ultimately get the water.
The famous statement by Lalo Prasad Yadav – “I will make the roads of Bihar as smooth as Hema Milini’s cheeks” – they both got votes (a different story is of course that roads in Bihar probably felt more like Om Puri’s freckles).
Is Chidambaram be happy with the comparison to Lalo Prasad and Devi Lal – is this his legacy? By the way apologies to Om Puri for referring to his freckles, certainly I am sure he is comfortable with them. Of course he is a fine actor (does not need any badges in that space) – my favorite movie for a while has been Maqbool. Though I would ask him to think of an update to his earlier movie Arohan depicting the true destruction caused by the communists under Jyoti Basu in Bengal.
Very Clever Mr Chidambaram
Needless to say this is again cleverly done – any person opposing this or speaking up against this will be targetted as anti-women. Remember George Bush – you are either with us or against us (and you are a terrorist) – very clever Mr Chidamabaram !
