CONSUMER IS (not)THE KING

It was about 12-18 months back that India was going through a slow down/ recession.

All sectors of the industry, Airlines, Telecom, Manufacturing, and Exports etc approached the govt for relief, and they all got----naturally...

It was time for lobbies to get into action and also for netas and babudom to make a bit of pocket money. Why not-consumer is NOT the king.

During the slow down period, some companies came up with a unique idea of making money, making a fool of us and they succeeded in doing both.

Under the weights and measures (packaged commodities) act, company /manufacturer has to declare the STANDARD net weight of the content on the pack. But, some genius came up with a profitable idea.

Instead of packing the standard wt in the packs, what they did was to reduce the content to NON STANDARD wt and give a declaration to that effect on the pack, which reads as follows.;

NON STANDARD SIZE UNDER THE STANDARDS OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES (packaged commodities) RULES 1977.

The above declaration justified REDUCING the wt and selling non standard wt.

Britannia Marie.Wt reduced to 166gms.PKD-23/05/10-LOT NO 23394

Parle Kreams .Wt reduced to 80gms.Pack PKD-5/10-BATCH PN 5

HIPPO. Wt reduced to 85 gms- PKD-17/04/10-LOT-DE107220.

Why have an act on standard packing if it can be beaten up by just a declaration?

One might need a magnifying glass to read the non std declaration.

The list of products is too long to be covered here.

In the mean time, Companies reduce the wt, increase the price and declare bumper profits;

Govt gets its revenue-Companies make bumper profits-We get lower wt non STD pack at a higher price-Inflation touched double digit-Our pockets have a bigger hole.

Who said me, the consumer is the king?----I AM AN IDIOT

This, perhaps, could be the biggest scam in the packaged food/related industry

May be you can check the products you buy to see if you are a KING/QUEEN?

PAPPU and LALLI are still awaiting ROTI-KAPADA-MAKAAN.

YOUNGISTAN

In the last few years, there has been a lot of talk in getting the younger generation in to politics.

But who are these young ones from Youngistan? These are those chosen and privileged ones who are from one or the other political influential family.There are about 90 such MPs in the Parliament. To give an example, look at few of the Younger ones

Rahul Gandhi (Rajeev Gandhi)-Sachin Pilot(Rajesh Pilot)-Sandeep Dixit(Shiela Dixit)-Jyotiraditya Scindia (Madhavrao Scindia)-Suhasini Sule(S Pawar)-Jatin Prasad(J P rasad)-Omar Abdulla(Farooq (Abdulla)-Akhlesh Yaday(Mulayam singh)-Agatha Sangma (P A Sangma)-Kanzimori(Karunanidhi)-Varun Gandhi(Maneka Gandhi) on and on and on and on. Can we name one single young MP who is not from political family?

Will it be right and fair to expect them to do anything different than their parents did? Their party did? Their party’s (SIC) ideology? e,g

To follow the leader (cong) who himself is one amongst them but more equal than others?

Will Sachin Pilot, Scindia,Sandeep Dixit ever go beyond RG’s instructions?

Do exactly what the party says (cong /non cong)

Will Ajit Singh’s son not like to find a place in cabinet irrespective of ideology?

Will these young ones perform better or will become a part of the sycophancy.

Will Akhilesh Yadav ever make up with Mayawati?

Will Varun Gandhi not follow BJP line?

Will Karuna allow his daughter not to get the best for TN/party than for the country?

How is it heading a political party different than heading a multibillion \$ company? It is a high return business where the culprits form the rules.

So what wonders can we expect from the youngistan,if any? Why can’t non political families’ children also be brought into politics?

If these young ones had to perform, get noticed and stand by national interest, they all would have taken a stand on the following issues

Bhopal-Manipur-Caste Census-Inflation-Afzal Guru-Kasab-Foreign Policy-Naxals,-Internal Security-Illegal Immigrants-Governance-Corruption-Accountability,on and on and on. None of them have opened their mouth on these issues yet.

So what has changed---Change is visible. They have switched to Gucci brand suits and shoes and other branded accessories from what their seniors wore as Khadi with Gandhi Topi.

Nothing will change, except, perhaps the volume of black money and of course sycophancy.

PAPPU is still awaiting ROTI-KAPADA-MAKAAN

let us CHANGE INDIA for INDIA OF TOMORROW.
