Irony

The Congress, it seems, is getting rather egalitarian nowadays. The party will not tolerate feudal titles anymore says this report from the ToI:

Kunwar', `Raja', `Rani', `Begum', `Srimant' will soon stand deleted from the AICC's listings and records some 40 years after Indira Gandhi did away with privy purses in what was then meant to signal the arrival of a post-colonial egalitarian age.

Surprisingly, no mention was made of one feudal title in the article: Gandhi.

'Gandhi' is a surname, not a title.

Talking of politics and stupidity, here is something I found which you would like. A blog on environmental issues with heavy doses of sarcasm and satire.
Love the art!
