Breaking News: Black Announced as the National Colour of India

February 3, 2011 at 7:16 pm 29 comments

I have picked up tags in the past but never have they made me think so much. Here is my response to a tag by Cybernag on the pathetic state of India.

Fungress, the ruling party today made an important announcement; Black has been made the official colour of India. The Bill was proposed and approved at the ‘House’ of the opposition party leader with 100% approval of all in power and next in line to the throne.

A party spokesperson commented, “Black is symbolized for corruption which has reached a new level in our country. Hence to recognize its value this crucial step has been accepted with much cheer from our fraternity.”

Indian currency from today will be printed black. An IT & Tax department official on condition of anonymity has disclosed, “No more raids on politicians, businessmen and actors since there is nothing illegal about black money.”

All politicos and communal leaders will also wear black to express solidarity in their efforts towards ruining the country. As a sign of brotherhood the law too shall spare those doing crimes wearing black as the legal system is blindfolded by a black cloth. This should be seen as a sign of harmonious relationship in Democratic Corruption of India.

Black ink is also a sign that I have casted my vote. I did in the last two elections and I will again on

So what if everything is wrong and nothing has or will change, so what if the system refuses to bring the criminal to justice. It doesn’t matter if media doesn’t report and only shouts in high pitches in news @ 9 this is my bit to say, it does matter!

The aim is not to make light of the situation, it means will something happen before we become a joke for the world to laugh at?

    Lovely satire. Like I said on Zephyr’s blog…we need to start cleaning the root. Another example. When termite infestation in a place goes beyond control then you have to burn it the area to destroy everything.
    Ok…I have been tagged twice so better get my act straight.

    • 2. delhizen  |  February 4, 2011 at 12:32 pm

      After everything is burnt down then we rise from the ashes like a Phoneix

  • 3. Charan  |  February 3, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    As long as the politically architectured divide and rule policies and “What difference is my vote gonna make?” mentality of the common man exists….this situation will not only survive and grow to become stronger only.

    • 4. delhizen  |  February 4, 2011 at 12:33 pm

      yep, the mentality has to change, we are as much responsible. in whatever way possible, no matter how big or small it is… can’t we do something?

    You forgot to mention about Black talc which would be useful in place of black paint used normally to blacken face!

  • 6. Purbaray  |  February 3, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Sad, funny but true. Black is what our future looks like until we do something about it.

  • 7. Deboshree  |  February 3, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    Awesome post. Loved the satire like someone said. I do hope something happens soon before the sorry state becomes sadder!

    Wonderfully sarcy and sad at the same time. But loved the end of the post. Black might be the colour of the moment but we will see the rainbow in the end and enjoy a beautiful country and soon, (I hope).

    • 12. delhizen  |  February 4, 2011 at 12:58 pm

      like they say every cloud has a silver lining… hope its true for us as well

  • 13. zephyr  |  February 4, 2011 at 6:57 am

    And oh, Sorry for forgetting to commend the opening line — Breaking News indeed 😀

    I like the post Pal, as always, but not the idea. Shouting CHANGE! doesn’t change any thing. Changing is doing. Besides in all the posts I have read on this topic, no one speaks about ‘what next?’ When we say NO to some thing, we also have to suggest the ‘Change’ to which people will say yes. Negativity is every where. But I feel the only way to change it is to do some thing positive, which will cancel it. Pointing out the negativity does not reduce it. It adds to the frustration.

    Dont tell me what is there or not there, tell me what you can do?

    The comment is not aimed at you Pal, but to every one reading or writing on it.

    • 15. Mayur  |  February 4, 2011 at 1:00 pm

      Forgot to mention, I’ll pick up the tag now.

    • 16. delhizen  |  February 4, 2011 at 1:06 pm

      I know talk is not going to help, neither are we going to stand in the next election… but when it comes to corruption we are not behind, even we can do something about it moreover… If the media can’t talk because their pockets are stuffed with money from the biggies we can!

      I think The Hindu is the only unbiased paper around.

      You have picked up this ques in the past- what can you do? I can be on the right side. Express my opinion. If anyone sits up and reads what 1000 bloggers have to say. It might just flicker some hope somewhere.

    • 17. Sapna  |  February 4, 2011 at 7:44 pm

      A satire is aimed at showing a problem in a funny way and Pal has done a fabulous job at it. Now abt telling what to do- It is for people to decide for themselves or may be considering the times we live in, people might need a self-help book for that too. 101 ways to root out corruption or Learn to root out corruption in 24 hours or whtever…

      • 18. delhizen  |  February 5, 2011 at 1:09 pm

        I like your idea ‘ 101 ways to root our corruption’ looking forward to reading your post

  • 19. delhizen  |  February 4, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    @ Mr. Ayengar- Or maybe let the red tilak applied on the forehead be replaced by a black one

    Purba: I know, everything is so depressing… Where is Rahul Gandhi and his vision for the shining and happy India?
    Only comes out of at the time of canvassing or for cricket matches

    @ Deboshree- I should have tagged you too… anyway tagging you now, would like to read your take on the sorry to sadder state
