   And, for one more Saturday of our discontent... (October 8, 1991)

And, for one more Saturday of our discontent, a few stray thoughts and a few general observations and a few points of view (all my own work):

Like at a time when the government requires the support and cooperation of all opposition parties, Mr. Madhavrao Scindia should not have opened his mouth and made those immagure allegations agains the BJP. Even though the allegations may to some extent be correct.

And in the interest of functioning of the parliament and for the passing of all the revolutionary economic proposals, Mr. Scindia should stand up and apologise and say that he did not mean what he meant.

Like, so far, this parliament has gone the way of all the other recent parliaments: interruptions, walkouts, thumping of tables, raising of voices, ectraneous issues, personal allegations, not allowing the parliament to function. And that happens if the same people are elected over and over again to the parliament.

Like I understand Amitabh Bachchan has been the only person close to the Gandhi family who had advised her not to get into politics. And that is what good friends are for. Compare him with one Captain Satish Sharma, who is already telling the people of Amethi that Sonia Gandhi is coming for their votes.

Like, if you ask me, the mayor of London is very much like our mayor of Bombay. Both are rather decorative figures, only the mayor of London is more decorative than the mayor of Bombay.

And what I would like to know is who is in charge to fht BEST undertaking. The Bombay municipal corporation does not seems to be in charge of it any more. And I would also like to know who is running the BEST emplyees union. Nobody seems to be doing it right row, because the union did not even know that the employes had gone on strike.

Like one way of getting this new agricultural policy working is to continue to fully subsidise the big lakhpati farmers and withdraw all subsidies from the small and medium farmers.

And nice things do occasionally happen to nice people. Such as Eknath Solkar being put in charge of the junior under-16cricketers. And, in my book, no cricketer has served Indian cricket in so many different departments and so well and so generously and uncomplainingly as has Solkar.

Like, for the sake of Kamanth Plaza's raindance, I hope it rains with thunder and lighting tonight. And, after tonight, the monsoon season ends.

And this final point of view:

That the Bombay municipal corporation's loss has been Jaslok Hospital's gain.
