Hi BK,

I liked the way your shaped up this post, and yes - this is what India is all about - so very true. One one side it has it humorous parts, but people fail to see the tragedy behind all of these things.

Thanks for sharing. :)

First I thought some of them are best but when I started to read it again for commenting, I found every 'comedy/tragedy' lines are best! Should we laugh at it or laugh it off?
