Dear Manmohan Singh, in the long run, India shall live and thrive!

Dear Dr. Manmohan Singh,

A couple of days ago, in the Rajya Sabha, you quoted John Keynes – “In the long run we are all dead” – No doubt. Undeniable truth for us mortals.

Is that why you were unperturbed by “organised loot and legalised plunder” under your captaincy?

Is that why you sat mute while supervising monumental scams under your reign?

Is that why you adopted the “let them loot” approach?

Because anyways – in the long term we are all dead… so why bother?

Sir, no one remains PM for eternity either…

Wish you had applied this dictum even when you sat glued to your title, belying the degrees and intellect attributed to you, merely for sake of retaining the titular post.

Respectfully sir, you are right. In the long term, we all shall die.

But India shall live… India, the land, the idea, the spirit, the civilisation shall continue to live, grow and thrive till eternity…

Like it did much before you first cried in Gah.

There comes a day, when we all must think beyond me and my time.

Think and do for that future ahead…
