Inflation and Pranab da

A short story of Indian Economy

Two persons were digging hole. A passerby asked them what they were doing. Both replied together: ‘There is too much dirt, we shall bury all the dirt in this hole.
But what you will do with the rubbish you have dug out?; the Passerby asked.
One of the diggers looked hard into the eyes of passerby and took out a smoking pipe and a lighter from his pocket and after lighting, took a deep drag on the smoke then turned towards the passerby and said ‘Look we have done so much for the people, now they must also do something.’
When the passerby asked ‘who gave you this idea?
They pointed their finger towards a Sardar wearing blue turban, dozing on a cot nearby and snoring heavily.
You must have guessed by now that two persons digging hole were Pranab Mukherjee, the Finance Minister of India and D. Subbarao, the Governor of Reserve Bank of India. They were trying to bury the inflation in a hole made from higher taxes and higher loan rates.
Wise and noble fellows!
Who else cared so much for this country?
Tell me!
