Madiwala meets Manmohan

Today is the foundation stone laying day for the Bangalore Electronic city elevated toll expressway. This ceremony is near the wholesale market of Madiwala (which I often write about). The foundation stone is being laid by Manmohan Singh - the hope of the aam aadmi (ordinary person). But for the visit of the khaas aadmi (special person), quite a few aam aadmis have been affected. The Madiwala market has been closed,fenced neatly and the road wears a clean look today.

For those of you who know this place, it is the epitome of chaos and it is not exactly a clean place with mounds of vegetable waste lying around. If for a special person, the whole thing can be turned around, why cant it be good for the ordinary person? And then again, this is not about the present government, but about the entire system in India. As my friend says, "Jin logon ko problem solve karni hoti hai, woh apni problem solve kar lete hain" (Those who are supposed to solve our problems, only solve their own problems)
